Photoblogs to Help Fight Crime

Police in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, are posting photos of football (a.k.a. soccer) hooligans on its website in hopes that the public can identify the pictured individuals.

The action is reportedly in response to a particularly violent riot that occurred in April. Since the photos were posted, 15 of the 60 suspects have turned themselves in.
