Referee Decapitated


Recommended Posts

There are some serious issues with the reporting of this story!

 

The idea that this was at "Football match" is ridiculous. As far I understand it was a group of ignorants having a kickabout in the middle of nowhere. A "referee"? No he was a 20 year old kid with a knife.

 

Guardian were even worse, illustrated the story with a photo of Police confronting protestors from the demonstrations in the cities here last month (!) and then went on to frame it within Brasil's "World Cup Preparations" & "Tourist Safety". f***ing absurd.

Do you have any sources (in Portuguese) confirming that?

This (admittedly, probably not the most trustworthy) link disagrees with you.

That's the same basic information quoted everywhere, seen it described as an "amateur football match" and even that is a push, there's no stadium, & the "fans" in this instance were the stabbed player's mates.

 

But of course tourists should beware going anywhere near a country where they carry out public beheadings.

Are you unhappy Matty? I don't want you to be unhappy. Please put me on ignore.

And miss the comedy? Never.

 

What's up? Don't you like being contradicted? Not comfortable with other opinions?

What's your opinion then? "Savages"?

It's awful. No other opinion than that.

 

Just think it's strange and funny to see someone so determined to brush something like that under the carpet.
