The Uruguayan Football Association, AUF, decided on Friday to suspend all soccer activities of the weekend including the main league matches, following the death of a supporter from Pe;arol, one of the leading teams of the country who has been shot and seriously wounded in late September by fans from the other big club of the country, Nacional.

    This is just the beginning for Uruguay. In Brazil, 2 or 3 supporters of the larger teams are killed every month. As long as these organized groups of supporters - more like groups of thugs just waiting for the '3rd time' afer the match, on the streets - are allowed to exist, they will keep on killing each other. Those that allow themselves to get involved, deserve what they get.

    “The issue has been further complicated by the fact that the Uruguayan Home Office refuses to send police officers inside stadiums”

    And the police, who get the princely sum of UYU$13,000 per month (U$D 433) for carrying a pistol on duty are still being jailed by The Broad Fraud appointed Judges for 'exceeding' their remit in killing “poor young men” who have just committed murderous theft in broad daylight in front of witnesses, and in one case drove a car at three policemen with the clear intention of 'clearing the way'. The police stood their ground and fired at the car as it approached and continued to fire at it as it tried to escape, killing a robber. The judge jailed two policemen even though there was only one bullet in the robbers back, the other was released without charge.

    Only in Uruguay under The Broad Fraud. :o(

    Very soon the police will refuse to turn out to these murders because of the risk of jail for doing what the citizens want done, and who would blame them?

    At the usual bullshit 'government committee' at some poor, small, village in the sticks (remember Two Shags starting this in the UK - it soon stopped when it blew up in their faces) President Vasquez (liar in extremis with two bars) instructed Bonomi, the useless Interior Minister, to provide more police to the village after two people had been killed in similar circumstances.

    As usual it will be for show and nothing will get done.

    “even though there was only one bullet in the robbers back,”

    That's why ChrisR had his guns taken away.

    @ ElaineB

    Proof again, if further proof is needed, that either you cannot read my posts properly because of the red mist which comes down when you see a man posting OR you are attempting to lie.

    Which bit about 'murderers' do you not understand.

    So there we have it: you don't want civilian being safe from murderers and robbers (who many times when detained have been found to have murdered someone and are being sought by the police.

    It must be great to be a sanctimonious, prissy arsed feminazi who has never read a Uruguayo paper to get herself informed - OH, just remembered - you know what YOU think without needing to find out the truth. Try visiting the west side of MVD, please, please try.

    And everybody in the UK had their short-barreled handguns confiscated not just me because of the Scottish Northern Constabulary broke the rules when they issued Thomas Hamilton with a firearm certificate at first application.

    They paid for it when several ranking officers were retired (on full pension) and the rest of the staff were shipped out to other forces.

    But why let actual facts and the truth, something that you are a stranger to, get in the way of your poisonous thinking?

    Just to clarify it for you, I don't have a problem with men, I have a problem with you, the poor man's Trump.

    So you DID have you gun taken away from you. I was right.

    You support the shoot-em-up, gun-toting, society that would shoot a man in the back, without trial. I don't. I want to live in a society that dispenses justice after fair trial. I could not be happier that you no longer pollute the country I love, I only wish more people like you would leave.

    Why are you so terrified of women? All the insults are just you cowering, scared in the corner.

    @ ElaineB

    You stupid female. I admire women and treat them as equals: they don't need laws to 'make them equal to men' as you keep crowing on about even though what you really mean is laws to make you superior to men.

    “So you DID have you gun taken away from you. I was right.”

    Bully for you, I only posted chapter and verse many times, but of course you just ignore it to make a point.

    Pity it makes you look like a stupid, weak, feminazi.

    As for Uruguay you have no idea what you are posting. Stupid feminist.

    I have corrected your post for you: “All the lies is just me cowering in the corner”.

    No need to thank me..

    @ ChrisR - Poor man's Trump.

    ChrisR “I admire women”, “stupid, weak, feminazi”. “stupid feminist”. Hahaha! As usual your own words condemn you.

    Actually, I do not think there should be specific laws making women equal. The laws of Equal Opportunities should apply to everyone regardless of gender.

    Why are so many of your posts about women and anti-feminism? You sound more like Trump every day. No wonder you support him.

    @ EB

    It's all about you, isn't it.

    Again, you claim things about me you know are ONLY meant for you, but it doesn't stop does it.

    Remember the “thieves think everybody steals and liars think everybody lies”: it could have been written for you, the lying bit that is.
