No action, no investigation Meanwhile, the grieving mothers of Jacarezinho continue to be harassed by the authorities' inaction. The Public Ministry (MP) closed investigations into 24 of the murders , accusing the police of murder and tampering with evidence in only three of the deaths. The case of Matheus, son of Santos, is one of those that have been filed. She says he was sitting, unarmed, in a plastic chair while he was having a seizure when he was shot. "He had no drugs with him and they killed him anyway," she says. Olliveira, from Fogo Cruzado, says that the MP should hold the police accountable.
They are responsible for supervising the south africa phone number list actions of the police. The omission of the MP means maintaining the status quo of a police force that kills and dies a lot, and in this case, kills more than dies”, he argues. In fact, he added, GAESP, a unit of the MP intended to supervise police actions, lost personnel and resources, resulting in a backlog of cases pending investigation.
The attack on Jacarezinho was, in a way, an outlier. The event attracted national and international attention and even led to an investigation.
