Soccer Referee Decapitated After Stabbing Player to Death in Brazil

USA Today, July 6, 2013

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.


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

    My, my, my, but aren’t Latins emotional. I guess it’s the European in me, but I prefer my games to be played according to gentleman’s rules–the rules of civilization, not savagery.

      Stabbing players to death and decapitating referees is just all part of cultural vibrancy. (/sarcasm off)

      • JohnEngelman

        And blacks bring guns to school because they have a different style of learning.

      Please stop referring to these mongrels as “Latins”. You’re Latin if you’re Italian, Spaniard, Romanian, Portuguese or French .

      • bigone4u

        OK, but it’s common to refer to S. America as Latin America. I agree with your point that when the Cultural Marxists control the language, they control our thoughts. Few in Latin America have ever studied Latin, so calling it Latin America is a misnomer in a sense.

    Old news. But it will soon be coming to America as we become more and more third world and miscegenated.

  • Spartacus

    Sound so culturally vibrant !

  • MekongDelta69

    And once again – more Hispandex ‘family values.’

    (I mean, c’mon – ain’t that what they do at all Yankee/Red Sox games?!)

    • Romulus

      Aaron Hernandez brought alot of vibrancy to Massachusetts and an African that used to be named ODIN?!!

    Hispanics are so violent. They are not at all like whites. Whites are calm, play by the rules, intelligent, forward-thinking, civilized. Hispanics are stupid, low IQ, irrational, lazy and worthless. They don’t produce anything, that is why they are so poor and worthless. We need to stop all Hispanic immigration, and sterilize the ones we have. Along with the negros.

      Hmmm, we appear to have two trolls here.

  • Look up the ancient Mezoamerican game of Pok-a-Tok. The losers of this game were often subject to being objects of human sacrifice. Methinks that soccer has taken the place of Pok-a-Tok in the psyche of the modern Indo/Mezo quite well.

    Coming attractions: The 2014 World Cup of soccer and the 2016 Summer Olympics, right in that very country. Not to mention the 2014 Winter Olympics right in the back yard of the home of all these Tsarnaev types that wrecked Boston.

      Buzkashi, the national game of Afghanistan, is an amusing version of polo featuring a decapitated goat carcass. Ain’t they got fun?

      • The__Bobster

        But Mestizos prefer the human kind……and use bags full of heads to send a message.

      • Sick of it

        Better than decapitating people…maybe they should have stuck with goats.

  • EuroAmerican

    Again, savages killing other savages doesn’t even make me blink. It’s like when I hear about another mosque bombing in Pakistan or Iraq, yawn…

  • Flash_Thunder

    I need some of that culture, that diversity in my life. It will make me stronger!

  • Erasmus

    Celebrate diversity!

  • humura

    Enough of this trying to impose Western values on others! This is the era of multiculturalism! The Brazilians simply acted upon their own value system. I suspect the head was not long on the stake. It could be used as a ball in the soccer game, making it similar to the Aztec football game before the Mexican Cortes destroyed the wondrous native civilization.

  • Stuck his head on a stake in the middle of the field?

    That’s actually sort of cool. After all, it’s not every day when a sports news article gets to use the term “torn limb from limb” and mean it literally. As long as this sort of behavior from the blacks and browns will continue, I am glad it is far away, and I appreciate creativity. In fact I feel culturally enriched! Killing a soccer referee is boring, but staking his severed head has some style to it, in a quaint, medieval sort of way.

    If they’re taking requests, I wonder if they would consider crucifixion the next time.

      How Vlad of you!

      • Vlad Tepes is my own personal hero. In my original post, I forgot impalement, but I fixed it. I love the editing feature Disqus allows, when Disqus works properly.

  • The__Bobster

    We need to put heads on stakes along the Mexican border, the ones who didn’t make it across the desert.

  • Do Euro and US soccer referees carry knives on the playing field?

    Is this coming to an exhibition match in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, or Soldier Field in Chicago soon?

    • jane johnson

      Maybe someone suggested that the ref carry a “Sharpie”, and he misunderstood.

  • Romulus

    An eye for an eye! Let the punishment fit the crime!

  • MBlanc46

    The World Cup ought to be very interesting.

  • KenelmDigby

    There are probably more than that living in London, England alone.
    Virtually *all* of them are illegal immigrants.
    Brazilian women dominate the prostitution and house cleaning ‘professions’ in London.
    Rest assured that the UK government will do absolutely nothing whatsoever to challenge illegal Brazilian immigration. They are here to stay and infinitely more will come.

  • White Reactionary

    What are Brazilians? They are a mongrel race yes, but are there any whites in Brazil that have managed to keep their bloodline exclusively European?

  • KenelmDigby

    “Football is not a matter of life and death – it’s much more important than that”.

    • Spartacus

      Brilliant !

  • watling

    This should make the 2014 World Cup (host nation: Brazil) a little more interesting.

  • I sure wouldn’t want to go in front of a US judge in a beheading murder case. The words “extreme indifference to human life” quickly come to mind. On the other hand, one of the things Mexican cartels do is kill reporters, and since the US mainstream media is definitely my enemy, the idea of someone doing terrible things to libtard “news” propagandists does not exactly upset me.

    My kids were on soccer teams when little. Fortunately our officiating was better. Have to admit, we had a lot of crazy parents on the sidelines. Guess soccer just does that to people.

  • Bantu_Education

    I believe this happened in NE Brazil which is heavily negro, if that helps explain this.
