    Former Brazil goalkeeper Bruno

    This caught my eye on the BBC Sport website today:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53148338

    Was this big news around the world at the time? I don't actually recall a lot about it.

    It's certainly a gruesome tale.

    Sadly my wife tells me Brazil has a huge problem with “femicide” not a term we thankfully hear much of in the UK - although we’ll have our problem too. Kinda intertwined with their cultural position I guess which can be quite overly macho I parts.
    Such a wonderful country and people.
    i was welcomed into the family as a “gringo” and treated me like a king, despite some of her family being quite poor. Pity they have a lunatic at the helm of their country.

    My impression was 70% of the best people I’d ever encountered, but the badasses were as bad as I never wished to meet again.

    yeah life is pretty cheap out there. I’ve not come across incidents personally but my wife’s grandparents were held are knifepoint in their home whilst their stuff was pinched,her cousin was beaten up whilst her uncles place was robbed, another uncle was stabbed to death at a cash point (the dude was mentally ill) and we’ve had a friend who was held over a few days whilst the guys forced him to withdraw the mad on his card then waited, did it again. Her cousins dad was stabbed to death.
    social deprecation is quite stark. They can’t afford furloughs and Bolsonaro is cutting back on the social safety net (The previous regime’s Bolsa familia - family purse)

    Where were you working? Did you ever meet up with Andrew Downie ? He’s a Hibee journalist was based in Rio but moved to São Paulo iirc although noted from Twitter looks like his back in the uk. He wrote a book on Socrates - the Brazilian national team captain, a doctor and an opponent of the military dictatorship. Received quite a lot of plaudits.

    Doctor socrates? I've just bought that book! Didn't realise the author was a Hibs fan.
