Madness in Brazil, footballers protest against referee: police charge them with pepper spray VIDEO.
Something never seen in Brazil, footballers protesting the referee were charged by the police with pepper spray .
All this happened during a Serie C match between Treze and Manaus.
The Treze was under in the score, the match was about to end, at the third red card the players no longer saw us in anger and began to surround the referee.
Certainly not an edifying scene but one that is seen thousands of times on fields all over the world. What you don't usually see is what happened during this match …
The policemen present at the stadium believed that the referee was seriously threatened. Then they broke into the green lawn.
The police immediately switched to the hard way and sprayed the pepper spray against the Treze players.
The policemen did not limit themselves to this (as if that wasn't enough…), they also hit the players with blows and fired tear gas at them.
At the end of the game, Treze protested through a harsh press release against the police:
“These things are seen only in Brazil and are the result of the lack of professionalism of the Brazilian police. They are not prepared and this is why such serious things happen… they gave us blows without talking to each other first… ”. (YouTube video).
