How about Ronald ( ronnie) Biggs are the english lampeão. I think biggs was more laid back though. He helped those people rob that train in england that was transporting some banks money. He was caught, incarcerated then he escaped from prison. Afterwards he went to france then to australia where he say a brochure that featured the sugar loaf mountains in rio de janeiro. He the decided to immigrate ( or escape once again) to Rio. There he married a brazilian woman and had a child. He was kidnapped once by bounty hunters who wanted to take him back to england so to collect a reward but when during a stop in barbados before returning to england his then 6 year old son pleaded with the kidnappers via tv to realease his father and they did. He returned to brazil, raised his child and now at age 74 ( i think) decided to spend his remaing days in england ( he said he wanted to visit the pub from his neighborhood in england before he died since he was quite ill when he returned to england).
Now he is in a maximum security prison on his deathbed and his son is lobbying for his release due to R biggs terrible health condition.
So no babies ears being cut off, no priests being assasinated or anything of that nature. Plus Biggs was a good father and even though when he arrived in brazil he was almost broke he worked as a carpenter and then made money catering to tourists and telling his story to journalists so make money and raise his son.
Regardless of the diferent opinions concerning biggs I think it is quite a story. I hope they release him from prison, allow him to go to his old pub so he can have a pint and watch a soccer match. Pity he never supported flamengo though ( humn , maybe that is why god punished him in the end with jailtime).
