I read that it was in self-defense and the guy wasn't a state cop, it was more like a private security, and even nowadays Brazil don't give life sentences even if the criminal got a huge penalty for accumulated sentences the maximum years recluded in prison would be 30 years (not sure if Bolsonaro govt reformed to 40 years).
The logic in this is that by the first half of the XX century the life expectancy were so low that when you got arrested with 18 years old you wouldn't survive longer than 30 years more.
Yeah makes sense.
USA is just weird. Deadass 12 percent of the population of prisoners is over 55
I still remember when I was a kid I would be mad that prisons wouldn't let out dying prisoners to say their goodbyes to their family. And my dad told me they deserved it lol.
As someone in the US. The idea that you could kill a cop and only get 10 years is unimaginable. My home state the penalty for killing a cop is a mandatory minimum of life. But most cases in the US cop kills are just executed and sometimes get life without parole.
About 10 years is unimaginable.
