Turkish soccer fans are gangsta

I posted last week about Boston's wild celebrations after their sports teams win titles, most recently after the Celtics won the NBA crown Tuesday night. All I can say now is that they have nothing on Turkey's soccer fans. Over 20 people were injured by stray bullets fired in celebration of Turkey's win over Croatia in the Euro Cup quarters. And this didn't just happen in one large, crowded area. 11 of the people were injured in Istanbul, while the remaining people caught stray bullets in seven other cities throughout the country.
So I guess in America, we smash windows with road signs. In Turkey, they wildly fire gunshots into masses of people at random.
