Security was increased ahead of the major soccer tournament that falls two years in between each World Cup.  The extra security measures were for terrorists, not drunks, but the drunks certainly need it. Before Russia and England squared off in Marseilles, things turned violent.  Not "UK is going to the Final Four, let's go to State Street" violent, this is bloody violence.

Police responded with water cannons and tear gas to contain the crowd. They responded to the water with fire. It didn't end when they got to the game. The winner of the fight?  No one.  Russia forced a draw with a goal in the 92nd minute.
