(Newser) – A man in Brazil is dead after police say rioters threw a toilet bowl at a crowd gathered at a soccer match Friday. A video posted on YouTube reportedly shows the moment a toilet bowl was thrown onto the crowd. A Brazilian physics professor told a sports publication the toilet bowl likely came down on the 26-year-old fan with more than 750 pounds of force; police say it's likely the victim died instantly. Three other people were reportedly hurt as fans from the visiting team threw other toilet bowls from the upper decks in the stadium. It's the latest in a series of safety concerns for Brazil, just one month ahead of the World Cup.

Soccer is a bad thing. It's out of control 'fans' are responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths each year. It's why I don't condone it's presence here in the USA. Always have been against it and it's 'culture'... always will be.

The transcript for that Newsy video looked like C grade homework from a 9th grade high school journalism class.
