"National Treasure" Pele Robbed In His Own Country At Gunpoint

What in the hell? I understand that life is rough in the favelas of Brazil (that's ghettos for the uneducated) , but pulling a gun on Pele and robbing him is just too much. You don't rob "The King!" You don't rob the most famous and talented man to emerge from your own neighborhood. You don't rob the man that gives his money and time back to that community and criticizes the government for not doing anything for the poor and disadvantaged. This is your main man, you protect him, not hurt him!

Sadly, it's a generational thing. Pele's accomplishments or what he represented at a point in time probably means very little or nothing to them.
