As residents of Marseille began repairing the damage done by English hooligans Monday night and early Tuesday, the wheels of French justice began turning in an effort to curb the violence darkening the World Cup's otherwise festive atmosphere. Eight troublemakers who were arrested Sunday were brought before a judicial tribunal. Two English citizens were sentenced to three months in jail and expelled from France. Six others, five from England and one from France, will be sentenced on July 17.

Soccer in England has always been considered a culture unto itself, one that had no reason to fear intrusion--or even more than occasional scrutiny--from those who presume themselves to be truly cultured.
