There were absolutely horrific scenes at an amateur football match in Brazil when spectators lynched a referee and put his head on a stake after he had killed a player.

The barely believable incident happened in Maranhao, Brazil, last Sunday.

According to reports in Brazil, referee Otavio Jordao da Silva (20) fatally stabbed footballer Josenir dos Santos Abreu (30) during a heated moment of a match.

Santos Abreu is believed to have argued and then struck the referee after being unhappy with a decision.

It is believed the referee was carrying a knife throughout the match and fatally stabbed the player in retaliation.

Santos Abreu was rushed to hospital but died from injuries on the way.

Outraged by the incident, some spectators then apparently decided to inflict a gruesome revenge on the referee.

According to reports, the referee was tied up, beaten, stoned and quartered. They then put his head on a stake and planted it in the middle of the pitch.

One man, Luiz Moraes de Souza, 27, has been arrested over the incident. He has admitted to assaulting the referee but denied killing the man. Police are searching for two more suspects.

They are currently viewing video footage of the incident filmed by a witness with a mobile phone.

In a statement, the regional delegate of Santa Ines, Valter Costa, who is looking after the case, said: "One crime never justifies another crime. Actions likes this do not collaborate with the legality of state law."

Yeah, its pretty common place for people to being quartered over petty reasons and having others taking dumps on their body stumps these days >_>

On a side-note, it seems the notification isn't working anymore. How cute.

Holy sh*t, that's freaking horrifying!!! surprise

While the retaliation was gory and uncalled for the referee kinda had it coming. I know some players can act like jackasses but that's no excuse for stabbing them to death.

The ref got quartered before they stuck his head on a pole. That ain't justice, it's overkill.

No, it is justice. Would you rather keep him in a prison and pay for him to live there?

He killed someone and they killed him. The end.

I'm not saying the ref didn't have it coming, but for christ sake they already stoned him before chopping other parts of his body, that's just over the top.

Uh.. u- really? This is justice? I know I had a twisted sense of justice, but holy shit dude.

So wait, let me get this straight. He stabbed someone after being assaulted. Whatever, that was overkill for even stabbing someone. But you really think justice is getting an angry mob of people, attacking him, stoning him, beating him to death, decapitating him, and then placing his head onto a stake and letting people watch the horror?

That's justice? What the hell are we? That's not justice. That's not justice at all. That's a bunch of psychopaths going shit crazy. It's one thing if someone would've stabbed him back. I don't even fully agree with that, but it would've been more justified than acting like a bunch of crazy ass apes in an angry mob and doing all of that.

It's crazy. It's purely crazy. There's no justice there. Infact, it's the complete oppoiste. And that idea of "justice" can easily be reversed around, because now those people deserve to be killed in the same way. Because it's justice, right? Then those people deserve it. Then those people who did it deserve it. It's an endless cycle of a messed up sense of justice that will get humanity no where.

I think the homicidal referee should've been killed, but not like this. This is the kind've death reserved for child rapist/murderers.

@cezar_thescribe: ...The fact you're saying this was a just act for an angry mob to attack, stone and kill the referee really frustrates me beyond belief. There was no justice to be found by acting like a crazed crowd of hooligans and doing even worse things to the referee. Not to mention this all started over a game of fricking football. It really is people who are the problem with humanity.

@russellmania77: Read the stories of Gulliver's Travel when he visits the Huenums. It points out that we humans only use reason to guide us. We don't necessarily use genius for great things but use it in a way to get want we want; expanding human vice further along the road.

- You can even watch the Avengerd scenes from Captain America's initial 10$ bet with N. Fury to when S.H.E.I.L.D gets busted. That is the true definition of Human advancing and nothing else.
