Yes, you read that correctly, Bruno, as the star goalkeeper is known in Brazil, was signed by Boa Esporte for two years. He received a 22-year sentence for killing his ex-girlfriend after she demanded child support for their newborn child. He has been released because of his lengthy appeal. He had served six years. And you thought the NFL was bad.
The soccer club’s president says that he was not breaking any laws and, in fact, was fulfilling a “social obligation” by helping Bruno readjust to society after prison (and the act of exploring dismemberment as a possibility for canine nourishment — note, The Barometer inserted this last part). “I have a clear conscience that Bruno needs this process of re-socialization. He deserves another opportunity.” He may have a clear conscience, but the rest of us are sleeping with the lights on tonight.
