On When the Police Plays Dirty

This has happened in Recife, in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil.

Folha de São Paulo

A video posted on the internet in which two men, in custody, are forced to kiss each other. The footage seems to have been made at a police station. In the background, a man in police uniform, with a hood on his head, is watching the whole scene.   

Brazilian police forcing two suspects to kiss and taunting them with sentences like: "How Cute!", "Stick out your tongues!";  and halfway through the video, referring to them as "... These monkeys". 

The Pernambuco chapter of the Brazilian Bar Association deplores the act and says it will look into the matter....

Clearly, those law people were playing with Human Rights... Serious stuff!

What says you?

  1. It's not quite Abner Louima who was assaulted, brutalized and forcibly sodomized with the handle of a bathroom plunger by New York City police officers after being arrested, but humiliation in any form by people in authority with guns should be treated seriously.

  2. In any form, Ian. That is humiliating in many levels...

  3. Not a proud moment for a country about to step on to the world stage hosting World Cup and the Olympics.
