Beacon Football Riots

A historical disaster.

In Heaven, of course, students do sometimes fight each other on account of trivial sporting rivalries (and here one remembers the famous Beacon Football Riots, in which 54 people were killed, and a large part of the city of Sakura Amir was burnt to the ground). In Hell, on the other hand, riots tend to be politically motivated, and are inclined to break out whenever the government of the day shows an excess of mercy; for the students of Hell tend to be conservative, and consequently protest most vehemently if they are deprived of their accustomed calendar of public hangings, garrottings and dismemberments.
