per non dimenticare

Gabriele Sandri was killed two years ago today on his way to watch his football team. The policeman who killed him continues to deny wrongdoing, and a court case is grinding slowly on through the slow spiral of appeals. His family are still waiting for justice. They may be waiting a long time.

It feels like just a few months that I drove past the remains of the riot outside the Olimpico which followed the league's refusal to cancel the days' fixtures. That anger - wrongly expressed but entirely justifiable - lives on, like the memory of a young man shot while he slept in the back of a car.
