Billabong Team Rider Bruno Santos Killed By Off Duty Cop

“Beautiful morning but I was horrified to realize everyone was paddling out to Pipe to form a circle in remembrance of my friend, #RicardoDosSantos, who passed away in hospital after being shot three times yesterday in #Brasil. @ricardosantos90 was truly one of the great barrel riders of his short time (myself and a few others learned that the hard way against him at Teahupo’o a couple years back when he won the #AndyIronsAward in the event). He also won the #WaveOfTheWinter in 2012-2013 for a crazy barrel at #Pipeline and was a regular standout in any barreling or heavy conditions around the world. This was truly a senseless loss of life. It unfortunately brings to light the number of murders yearly in Brasil, officially documented at over 50,000 with many thousands more going unreported. Lack of education, poverty, and drugs don’t make for a good mix and make life challenging in this country, one of the most beautiful and scariest places I’ve been. Condolences to Ricardo’s friends and family around the world. Our small community has lost another way too soon. #RIPRDS #WTF #HardToBelieve” – Kelly Slater (Instagram)

Hardcore Magazine – January 20, 2015
The soldier of PM author of three shots that hit the surfer Ricardo dos Santos last Monday (check here the editorials) claimed that he acted in self-defense and presented another version for the occurred.

Police who did the escort of the room where the PM is arrested, reported that the soldier said he had thrown to defend himself and that the episode happened because of a trivial discussion of transit.

The younger brother of age of the author of the shots said that the surfer and another man would have broken up him with a machete by account of the place where the car was stopped.

After having taken the testimony of five people, the delegate of the Police Station of Slindon, Marcelo Arruda, works with two versions.

“There are two conflicting versions so far. A submits that acted in legitimate defense for having been threatened before, and the other part says that there was no discussion or aggression that could justify the shots,” said Arruda.

The uncle of surfer, Mauro Silva, was one of heard by the police and said that the shots were unjustified and along the shores of the surfer.

“A surreal situation. The guy understood the weapon and fired. There was in fact a discussion to shoot. Only ask for the “expensive” leave, the Ricardo looked and spoke two things and we left. He (suspect) was changed, I couldn’t talk much. The brother said: ‘we will exit, we are now’. The Little Richard or looked for the ‘face’, he shot back, without any reason – account Mauro da Silva.

The state of health of Ricardo dos Santos has worsened in the early hours from Monday to Tuesday. A new hemorrhage forced the surfer to go through one more surgery on the morning of Tuesday (here the reportage).

January 19, 2015
The world of surf dawned with a sad news this Monday. The professional surfer Little Richard dos Santos was shot in front of his home, on the beach of Guarda do Embau (see full story).

All sources indicate that the catarinense would have gone complain with a group of people who used drugs and heard loud music on the banks of the River of the Mother (beach access Guard), and began a discussion that only ended when the surfer was shot dead by gunshot.

In November 2011, Ricardo dos Santos has published a text-catharsis, manifesting itself in relation to bandits who were “destroying” the Guarda do Embau. AND he was absolutely right.

Read in its entirety and #forçaRicardinho!

“Just to make it clear, this is not a text of a professional surfer, but a guy who was born and grew up in a blessed place.

Those who do not know where is this wonderful place? Who does not dream of living in a place like this? Who never took a summer in this beautiful place? Who doesn’t love to have a home in this piece of heaven? Quemmmm? Quemmmm? Quemmmmmmmmmmm????????????

Because it is! Today it seems that this piece of “heaven” is losing its charm, it seems that the people no longer value more the fact that they are in a beautiful place and pure.

These pictures, unfortunately, are no longer the reality of the Guard. It is with immense sadness that I write this, but the Guard is being DESTROYED.

I am one of the thousands of people who were born and grew up in this place blessed by God, and I am also one of the witnesses of the misery that has been happening in recent years.

Good were the times that the Guard was a place of a potter, drifter, hippie and etc. Now, instead, we have bandits! They will be with their cars to sound all night moving or stopped in the middle of the PRAIAAA, ringing a mediocre music at the highest volume possible and leaving garbage on all sides. Que coisa mais linda ne? ! ? ! ?!

Ai you would say … “aaaahhhh, but this is not possible, as the population allows such a thing???? As the POLICE allows something of this level in the “pearl” of the state???? As POLITICIANS who deal with an absurd that Samina’ “.

I would say:

– residents do nothing because they are afraid to take a shot. AND all this, because they are asking for a bit of peace or simply by the fact that these cursed are drunks and bad mood wanting to get. (Just to make it clear, all of this is already happening in other beaches of the state).

– Already the police, does not appear during these badernas. The uselessness public is not able to give the guys in the middle of a farra these … which makes the Guard the perfect place, not for the good tourists, but for anyone who get groovy fuder!

– On politicians all know … want our money and that if monk seal ( Monachus-Monachus the rest!

Then my friends, this is the current and constant problem of the Guard. AND nobody does Fuck you none to help!!!

But finally, the result of all this for me it boils down to two words: sadness and pain.

This year I am choosing to not go to my house in the summer. I’m afraid to come home and die of grief, I’m afraid to see the place where I grew up, played the moths. I am leaving to spend Christmas and new year with my family, because I do not want to have to witness the greatest putarias what human beings can do …

We already know that the politicians are all FDPs, that the police are useless and that nobody makes porra none with respect to this turmoil. But what many do not know, is that the Guard is LOW and will not take long.

I pray from the bottom of my heart all help, so that we can all together unite to put an end to this farce.
Share this text (or link) with all your friends and relatives. AND together we will fight for a better Guard.

Thank you for your attention.
