    Sad story... but that's reality. And it's a corrupt reality in many places... like Brazil.

    Nothing new here, I remember reading about a Swiss nun/nurse/master gardner in Colombia who was doing such hideous things as teaching personal hygene, horticulture, giving spiritual assistance/counseling and taking care of sick babies. I think she was shot, maybe raped?? Locals often die by being quartered with a chainsaw in the town square -its sets an example for everyone that want's to be a "community activist". Real nice guys in the the world.
