    What's up with all this, "Like the USA"... Brazil...yer criminal justice system and the systemic gulfs between poor and rich AND systemic racism are MUCH WORSE than anything in the United States right now.
    There's nothing like the favelas in or outside of any major American city... Brazil is all on its own with the level of violence, drugs, and racism in its ghettos today.

    Response to this comment:
    Police = Criminals

    I agree with others comments. I'd like to add that I'm horrified about the Police, who hold a lot of trust and power.

    1. That Police could kill 37 of 69 kids in the group. Directly or Indirectly.

    2. That Police could murder a prisoner on the way to jail, make excuses and get away with it. Any common sense could tell you two burly men sitting on one skinny guy are up to no good. Yet there were allowed to drive off like that.

    Unfortunately, just like in the USA, if you have the "right" jury, they will forgive the Police for anything they could possibly do.
