Comment about the Criminal Conviction of Tom Brady's Bodyguards: In my post two days ago I commented about the declining homicide rate and the lack of gun ownership in Costa Rica. Here is another item from the newspaper.
A Costa Rican court has just convicted and sentenced to 5 years in prison two of the former bodyguards for U.S. football star Tom Brady and his Brazilian model wife, Gisele Bundchen. When they were in Costa Rica for their wedding in 2009, the bodyguards confronted two photographers who worked for a French press agency who were photographing the wedding from a neighbor's property, with permission of the neighbor.
When the two photographers refused to surrender the cameras and memory cards to the bodyguards and returned to their car, the bodyguards shot out the rear window of their car. No one was hurt, but the two bodyguards were just convicted of attempted murder.
