The myth of the hotblooded Latino

From our voluminous "stereotypes come from somewhere" files...

SAO PAULO — Police say enraged spectators invaded a football field, stoned the referee to death and quartered his body after he stabbed a player to death.

Local news media say the spectators also decapitated Silva and stuck his head on a stake in the middle of the field.
Yikers.
