Agente penitenciário é fuzilado dentro do carro no Rio: A Rio prison guard is machine-gunned to death in his car. The Estadão (São Paulo, Brazil) reports.
With 47 bulletholes in the death car.
This sort of massive overkill may indicate an organized crime queima de arquivo.
Pure guess: symbolic punishment for violation of omertà.
Even more speculative: either militia-related, or else a penalty for contractual nonperformance with a prison-based alt.pharma.leisure concern. If had to bet, I would incline toward the former. Cannot exactly put my finger on why. All of this pure guessing, mind you, so no wagering.
