On December 18, 1936 a Brazilian farmer killed at least ten people in Monte Aprazível, Brazil. A Japanese colonist had caught the man's 10-year-old son in his orchard stealing fruit and cut off his hand with an axe. The boy returned home, told his father about the incident, and died shortly thereafter, whereupon the farmer took a shotgun and hid by the roadside, shooting every Japanese passing by. He was arrested by police after shooting dead either 10 or 16 of them, including the sons of the man who had killed his son.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]
