In 2010, Brazilian soccer player Bruno Fernandes de Souza did the unspeakable when he had the mother of his child abducted, murdered and fed to a pack of dogs. For some peculiar reason, he only served a seven year sentence. Now that he's out of prison, he'll be returning the sports.
Eliza Samudio claimed that Fernandes was the father of her four-month-old son. While pregnant, she even filed a police deport alleging Fernandes hired people to kidnap her and attempt to force her to have an abortion.
Despite the fact that Fernandes was found guilty of Samudio's murder by the Brazilian court, he was released 16 years early. Because, you know, murder is completely okay when you're an athlete.
Whether it be in high school or the real world, it seems like athletes can get away with almost anything.
So, there you have it. Fernandes has been signed to Boa Esporte, a second-divison club, for two years. I don't know about you, but I would not want to be involved with that club.
The club owner, Rafael Gois Silva Xavier, explained that Fernandes "deserves another opportunity."
Someone who committed murder does not deserve another opportunity. You know who deserves another opportunity? The thousands wrongly incarcerated in the U.S. But that's none of my business though...
