Fans Kill and Quarter Football Referee in Brazil

Police say enraged spectators invaded a football field, stoned the referee to death and quartered his body after he stabbed a player to death.

The Public Safety Department of the state of Maranhao says in a statement that it all started when referee Otavio da Silva expelled player Josenir Abreu from a game last weekend. The two got into a fist fight, then Silva took out a knife and stabbed Abreu, who died on his way to the hospital.

The statement issued this week says Abreu's friends and relatives immediately "rushed into the field, stoned the referee to death and quartered his body."

Local news media say the spectators also decapitated Silva and stuck his head on a stake in the middle of the field.

Police have arrested one suspect.

What a bunch of animals.

 

No, actually... I take that back. Animals don't act like that, at all.

 

So, what that should read is:

 

What a bunch of humans.

Beautiful game? it's a bunch of over paid pricks kicking a ball around a field and they're supported by scum of the earth who think it's acceptable to fight, cause riots and attack random people.

WTF was the ref doing with a knife on the pitch? The fans got medieval on his culo.

 

Surely FIFA is going to have to reconsider.

To be fair, if I had seen my son stabbed to death on the pitch, or anywhere else for that matter, the killer would soon find himself in more than 4 pieces.

I am not scum of the earth and I do not think it's acceptable to fight, riot or attack random people... Please don't generalise.

I did use "" around beautiful game. I don't call it the "beautiful game" that is what it is known as.

 

I was obviously trying to point out it isn't always as beautiful as some people may think.

Sounds like the refs should be armed with assault rifles.

Ah Brazil, where last year there were 50,000 murders, and we decided that was the best choice for the Olympics and World Cup because?? Ah that's right, massive wealth in certain parts due to resources, while the majority are in abject poverty and this type of stuff happens.

You gotta give credit to them, they managed to turn what would be a tropical paradise full of beautiful women, great beaches and amazing weather, into a place you really shouldn't go to
