Brazilians are known for beingpeaceful beings and for the rampant government corruption cases all over the country to which Brazilians do nothing about. Apparently, Brazilians are fed up with all that and they are protesting on the streets more and more. The most recent cases all over the country are related to the increase in public transportation prices.
First of all, public transportation in Brazil is very bad, and they should be protesting a long time ago. Also it’s expensive and to go from place to another in most cases takes you a long and arduous time. Doesn’t matter if it’s by plane, by boat, by train or by car. They are all at full capacity, unsafe and expensive. But that’s a subject for another post.
Today i want to talk about the protests in Sao Paulo and how the police is repressing it. Just yesterday, a journalist was caught on camera getting beaten by the police. But the problem is that they caught the wrong person. He was working and not protesting. For the police it doesn’t matter. They don’t do their work correctly, how could they do it right now. Of course, they messed up again!
They might do that to you as well, if you go to the World Cup and try to help somebody getting trapped in the middle of the crowd. If they see you as the first one around, you will get beaten and they get asked what you did. Wrong or right.
Watch below the video of the journalist getting beaten in Sao Paulo. And further down a few other examples of police violence in Brazil caught on camera.
This video is a female police officer forced to get naked in front of her colleagues because she supposedly accepted bribe money.
This other one is most absurd… cops beat a guy after telling him to go away for hours. Why not just arrest him?
Jump to 2:44 for the action part.
This one is in Recife… the cops took the guy to beach and start the spanking session
On this one, the cops shoot and kill an unarmed and already surrendered teenager.
So guys how about that for a first post about Brazil?
