Here’s some WTF news for the day. Talk about zero tolerance for dissent against a referee. The ref red cards the player, they get into a fist fight which leads to the ref stabbing the player. Then the crowd takes over and it gets even more ludicrous. In hindsight the ref should have ducked.
Looks like the Brazilians are “preparing” for the World Cup next year. As Eric would say FUUUUUUTTTTTBAAAAAHHHHLLLL!!!!
P.S. Let me know if anyone else thinks replacing the word “referree” with “bankster” would be a good start?
Brazil football referee beheaded after stabbing player to death
Outraged spectators in northern Brazil stoned football referee Otavio da Silva to death and hacked up his body, after he stabbed a player, who died on his way to hospital.
Police say the incident happened when the referee red-carded 30-year-old player Josenir Abreu from a game. The two quarrelled and got into a fist fight, then Silva stabbed Abreu.
According to the Maranhao State Public Safety Department fans got to the field and decapitated the referee, then dismembered his body.
Local news reports say the angry mob stuck his head on a stake in the middle of the field.
Police have arrested a 27-year-old man in the ongoing investigation.
“We will identify and hold accountable all those involved in this incident. One crime will never justify another. Actions like this do not correspond with state law,” police spokesman Valter Costa told reporters.
The police are reportedly looking for two more suspects.
The incident took place with a backdrop of Brazil facing mounting pressure to show it is a safe place before 12 cities host the 2014 World Cup and the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.
In June, Brazil was swept by the protests partly against the spending in preparation for the World Cup, as well as against the level of corruption.

TPTB need you to revere and worship their creations. The World Cup, the Super Bowl, The United Nations, The Olympics, and their megacities of towering shiny skyscrapers, and endless roads and beltways full of glimmering vehicles.
They see themselves as artists. As master craftsmen and social artisans of the highest order. Adolph and his Fatherland. Elizabeth and her Queenslands. Stalin and his Soviet Republics. Now Barack and his multiracial, multigendered, multinational corporate dreams of his father and united colors of a One World O-topia.

Soccer’s always been a stupidly violent game. Fans burn down the stadium and go on a vandalising rampage through the streets – and that’s when their team wins!
The players are no better. They’re all a bunch of cheating wimps. Personally I’ve never found it at all interesting chasing a spherical object for 2 hours. Give them each a ball, no more fights 😉
