Ref César Flores Shot Dead by Player After Red Card in Argentinian Football Game

Image

Police in Argentina have confirmed 48-year-old referee César Flores was shot dead during a game this past weekend by a player he had sent off.

According to Rita Sobot of the Daily Mirror, the incident occurred in the Cordoba district of the country on Sunday. Flores gave the player in question his marching orders for apparently "flooring an opponent," according to the report. The player then fetched the gun from his backpack and "ran onto the pitch as the game was continuing." The man is said to have shot Flores three times—once in the neck, head and chest.

"It all happened during the match," a police spokesman said. "We don't know what happened with the referee, but the player was angry and went to get his gun and killed him."

He also allegedly shot another player, Walter Zarate, in the chest. While the 25-year-old was "seriously injured," his wounds are not thought to be life-threatening.

Sobot noted the police have yet to capture the shooter, but he is still being pursued.

Authorities in Argentina continue to struggle with violence in football. In June last year a match between Ferro and Tiro Federal was abandoned after a player punched a referee unconscious after being shown a yellow card.

Last month, five players were sent off during a friendly between River Plate and Boca Juniors. The referee Patricio Loustau booked nine others during the game.

Yeah, it's very violent. Although I have never heard about a guy shooting the ref.

But the real problem is outside the pitch: the organized violence of the "fan" clubs, or more appropiately, football criminal gangs. Those "barras bravas" are into the drug buisness and all sort of other ilegal activities, and are funded by politicians from all sides.

About violence commited by the players, here's a fight that took place 2 weeks ago between Estudiantes and Gimnasia, which are rival teams. The goalkeeper could have been a great boxer :P .

Baby Dolphin Dies After Tourists Pass It Around For Selfies

Image

A rare baby dolphin has died on the beach after selfish tourists pulled it from the ocean so they could take selfies with it.

Shocking footage from Santa Teresita beach in Buenos Aires, Argentina, shows the body of the marine mammal lying motionless on the floor as dozens of people surround it.

The Franciscana dolphin had been passed around between sun worshippers while they took out their phones and posed for pictures.

It was then dumped on the side to die from dehydration and overheating from exposure to the sun.

A spokesperson for the Argentine Wildlife Foundation (AWF) condemned the actions of the tourists.

They said: “This serves to inform the public about the urgent necessity to return these dolphins to the sea as soon as possible.”

The footage sparked fury from viewers, many taking to Twitter to vent their anger at the actions of those on the beach.

The Franciscana dolphin is listed as a ‘vulnerable’ species as there are just 30,000 left on the planet and are only found in the southeastern parts of South America.

The SWF spokesperson added: ”It is fundamental that people help to rescue these animals, because every Franciscana counts now.“

It'a a big country with a lot of residents. If someone from Seattle visited Hollywood, they could be considered a tourist, as well. For that matter, if someone from San Diego visited Hollywood, they could also be considered a tourist.

I used to go to that beach as a kid. In fact, we had an apartment there.

Poor dolphin. Although it doesn't surprise me. Last week when I was at another beach a strange fish was found and nearly died too.

Man left furious after jokers attached a padlock to his ear
Last updated 13:29, March 4 2016

Tom Grim Fandango Matthews wrote that he "heard a click" then realised there was a padlock on his ear.

A man was left fuming after someone sneakily padlocked his ear.

The man, who calls himself Tom Grim Fandango Matthews on Facebook, claimed that a stranger had snuck up on him and attached the lock to his ear stretcher.

He explained that he was having a cigarette "out back" when he "heard a click turned round realised they're was a padlock on my ear and tried to chase em. [sic]"

Matthews was furious that someone had crept up on him.
He posted a picture of the lock on the social media site, along with an angry threat to the culprit.

But if he was expecting sympathy, or someone to join him in his rage, he was disappointed.

His friends just found the whole thing hilarious.

"Can I just ask how you didn't notice someone f****** about with you ear?" one wrote.

Another suggested: "Get yourself to the diy shop and give em a fiver to cut it off. After they've stopped taking pictures."

And a helpful mate added: "I can pick locks, £10 an hour tho! [sic]"

The jokes came thick and fast too: "Ear you should be locked up looking like that!"

Matthews, who appears to be from the UK, later posted that "old boy lived up the road and had bolt cutters", suggesting his jewellery had successfully been released from the lock. Phew.

They all look the same in that video. Inbreeding? That would explain something.

Man loses leg shooting rifle at lawnmower packed with explosives

PETER HOLLEY
Last updated 09:32, March 29 2016

Gruesome video footage has surfaced showing the moment a US daredevil lost his leg shooting a semiautomatic rifle at a lawn mower packed with several pounds of deadly explosives.

Georgia man David Pressley, 32, can be seen moving closer and closer to the explosive target as he peppers it with bullets. Moments later, the lawn mower suddenly explodes, unleashing a plume of smoke and shrapnel.

Authorities said one piece of shrapnel struck Pressley, severing his leg from below the knee, according to ABC affiliate WSB-TV.

The graphic video, recorded last week, captures blood splattering across the camera's lens before Pressley yells, "I blew my leg off!"

Another voice says, "Call an ambulance!"

Pressley's friends fashioned a tourniquet around his leg and drove him closer to the road, where he was picked up by authorities. He was eventually airlifted to a local hospital and was expected to recover, police said.

Lydiah Mays, one of Pressley's neighbors, told WSB-TV that she heard the gunshots but wasn't concerned until she heard the explosion, which shook her nearby home.

"I heard him scream, and so I came downstairs and we were all like looking out the front window," Mays said.

"You would've had to be on drugs or something to think it was a good idea to play with that and try to blow up a lawn mower."

Tannerite - a mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder that explodes when struck by a high-velocity bullet - is normally used for target practice. The product's website instructs users not to place Tannerite inside, under or near any type of metal objects. For every pound of Tannerite, experts advise standing 100 yards away.

"Do not shoot targets larger than 1 pound unless it is required due to extreme long-range competition," safety instructions on the Tannerite website read.

Police say Pressley used three pounds of the material and was only 25 yards away when the explosion occurred.

"It has become extremely popular in the last couple of years, and is sold in many outdoor supply stores such as Cabelas, Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain, and others," battalion chief Craig League with Walton County Fire Rescue told the Loganville News.

"One of the drawbacks with Tannerite is that the more of the product that you mix together and shoot the bigger and louder the explosion. This makes it quite dangerous for amateur use," he said.

"To my knowledge, this is the first injury that we have encountered in Walton County from the use of exploding targets."

Sheriff Joe Chapman told NBC affiliate WXIA that he gets several complaints a week about Tannerite frightening people's animals and waking children. He said that people are well within their rights to use the material on their own property but that they should ensure they have adequate space to do so safely.

The station reported that people have begun posting videos online of explosions that use as much as 100 pounds of Tannerite.

"Be careful," Chapman said.

"It's very dangerous, it's not a toy. It's much more than a firecracker."

Singer dies on stage 45 minutes after cobra bit her during performance

Image

A pop singer collapsed and died in the middle of her performance, 45 minutes after she was bitten by a cobra.

Irma Bule, 29, was dancing on stage in West Java, Indonesia, when she accidentally stepped on one of the snakes she used in her act.

She believed the King Cobra snake had been de-fanged but somehow it injected its venom into her when it bit her on the thigh.

Although Irma was reportedly offered antidote, she is said to have refused it and carried on performing after a snake handler pulled the animal away.

However, the poison in her bloodstream made her start vomiting and and have seizures as she gave the concert in the village of Karawang.

The distressing video shows the moment staff try to save Irma from the snake, named Rianti.

Irma was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Audience member Ferlando Octavion Auzura told local website Merdeka: ‘In the middle of the second song, Irma stepped on the snake’s tail.

‘The snake then bit Irma in her thigh.’

King cobras are one of the deadliest animals in the world and can kill an elephant – or 20 people – with a single bite.

“IT WAS JUST A PRANK,” COUPLE ARRESTED AFTER SETTING HOMELESS MAN ON FIRE

Image

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico – Police said a homeless man was sleeping alongside a road when a couple drove by in an SUV and threw fireworks on him, setting him on fire.

Now, police have arrested 31-year-old Joshua Benavidez and 31-year-old Irene Enriquez for aggravated battery with great bodily harm and child abuse.

The couple told KOB News they were simply trying to startle the sleeping homeless man and claimed they didn’t know he had been burned until after their arrest.

“It was just a prank, it was just trying to scare him, that was it,” said Benavidez.”I wish people could just see it that way. Everybody is so serious in this day and age. It’s like nobody knows how to laugh anymore.”

The couple has been charged with child absuse after police learned their children were in the car during the time of the attack. One of the children said his he had seen his parents throw fireworks on the sleeping man.

The couple thinks they should be able to get off with an apology.

“I don’t know why we can’t just say sorry to the burned man and let that be it,” Enriquez said. “Having to maybe go to jail seems like overkill for something that was just meant to be a prank.”

The victim is still in the intensive care unit at a New Mexico hospital.

It was in Albuquerque, New Mexico...

Poor guy. We had a high profile case a couple of decades ago, when wealthy teenagers from Brasília set an native who was sleeping on a bus stop or something on fire (Índio Galdino case). This sort of coward behaviour seems to happen all the time here, though, w/o major media shock...

Teen dies after shooting himself in head while taking selfie with dad's pistol

Image

By Andrew Marszal, New Delhi
1 MAY 2016 • 5:30PM

An Indian teenager has died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while posing for a selfie with his father’s gun.

Ramandeep Singh, 15, was posing for a photograph with his elder sister on Friday night when he pulled the gun’s trigger instead of clicking the photograph.

He was taken to a private hospital in Ludhiana, Punjab after neighbours heard the gunshot and alerted his parents, who were not home at the time. He succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.

The gun, a .32-calibre pistol licensed to Ramandeep’s father Gurkirpal Singh, was usually kept in a wardrobe in the house, according to police chief Manoj Kumar.

"The boy's father and family said that he was trying to take a selfie with his gun," said Mr Kumar.

The incident is the latest of several deaths in India to result from taking a selfie, a craze that has been fuelled by Bollywood celebrities and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.

Around half of the 27 recorded deaths worldwide resulting from self-taken photographs took place in India last year.

So far this year, a man in Kerala was gored by an irate elephant while posing for a selfie at a temple in April, and a teenager in Chennai was killed by a train after posing near railway tracks.

Indians have also been killed falling out of boats, off cliffs and into canals in recent months.

Mumbai has set up 16 “no selfie zones” at popular but dangerous locations after a tragic accident claimed two lives in January.

India overtook the US this year to become the world’s second-largest smartphone market, with 220 million users, behind only China.

India’s gun laws allow citizens to buy firearms with a government-issued licence, although the process is expensive and difficult. There are six million registered guns in India, and up to an estimated 40 million illegal firearms.
