In Brazil Homicidal Referee Beheaded By Spectators

Headline says it all: Brazilian referee beheaded by spectators after he fatally stabs player

Is racial segregation is increasing in Brazil? I ask because the racial divide in murder rates is widening in Brazil with murder rates for blacks rising while murder rates for whites are declining. Are they living more separated lives?

However the the 15.5 per 100,000 murder rate for Brazilian whites (way too dangerous for my taste) is still about 3 times higher than the overall US murder rate. Brazil's overall murder rate of 22.7 per 100,000 is over 4 times the US murder rate. Brazil's murder rate is over 10 times higher than many northern US states that have very low murder rates. Iowa at 1.3, Minnesota at 1.8, North Dakota at 1.5, New Hampshire at 1.0, Vermont at 1.1, and Maine at 1.8 show how safe a society can be.

National level murder rates hide enormous variations within nations, especially within larger nations. Does Brazil have any safe areas?

Update: From The Sun: Rapper is shot on stage in front of 3,000 fans in Brazil.

The killing happened in northern Brazil in an overwhelmingly black area. Perhaps there are some videos that would show the race of the lynchers, the lynchee, and the guy who was stabbed. I expect it might explain a lot.

So if I run for President of these United States of American on a platform that says we divert 1/2 of the US defense budget to enforcing the border and the other half to providing a free, extended vacation in Brazil to all those who are agitating to turn the US into Brazil, will I get your vote?

I mean, Hell, if Obama can get votes for Hope and Change, why not me?

Here's a video of some of the players in this event. One or two would be black in the U.S. The others look like mestizos.
