English football fans heading to Euro 2004 were warned today they face a force of hi-tech "robocops".
Portuguese police have spent £8 million on an armoury to crush hooliganism at the tournament and will have on standby a rapid-reaction force of specially trained riot officers....
Officers have been issued with latest-generation technology including 45 frequency jammers capable of disabling mobile phones to prevent gang leaders organising fights.
(imagine the chaos if the frequency jammers disrupted the cops own wavelength? or of the hooligans, having read the article, brought thier own emp device?)
