Martial Law and Chaos in Brazil

  • None of the media or news sources are really reporting on this, but the police in the state of Espirito Santo have been on strike since Sunday. This is a gun-restricted state and only the criminals have guns. In 3 days, the death toll has risen to 75. Everybody is locked in their houses. They sent the military into the capital, but residents there say that nothing is stable and all the cities around the capital (where I live) are still unstable and there are no police or military.

    It's actually pretty horiffic. People are using social media to communicate what's going on since the media ignores it. There are tons of videos, some more frightening then others. I saw one yesterday (which got taken down by youtube) where two shooters filled a guy 10 feet away with bullets. One of the shooters was actually recording!!! Then they came back and kept shooting his dead body in the face up close and recording it.

    It out of control.

    Here are a few links that are reporting. I haven't left my house for 2 days.-Centro


    POLICE GO ON STRIKE IN BRAZIL, CITIES BEING WIPED OUT IN "PURGE" FASHION
    http://www.politicaloutsource.com/2017/02/police-go-on-strike-in-brazil-cities.html
    Quote from: quote

    Police in Brazil have gone on strike, leaving the country unarmed and left in a "Purge" like chaos. In 30 cities across Brazil, militarized police are refusing to do their jobs. According to an anonymous source in the city of Espirito Santo, Brazil, the chaos can be comparable to the 2014 thriller "Purge", with people running rampant with guns and machetes, stealing from malls, and even dead bodies lying in the streets. As buses are set ablaze on night streets, and people crawl for shelter covered in blood, Brazil is slowly becoming overtaken by it's people.

    "A pm is on strike and the thugs are randomly shooting at anyone who passes the street in Espírito Santo, my God what is happening" says one Brazilian resident.



    DEATH TOLL NOW 75 IN ESPIRITO SANTO, BRAZIL AS LAWLESSNESS CHAOS ENSUES

    No major media outlet has picked up on the story, leaving many questioning why; are they afraid of exposing what a gun-restricted state could turn in to without the help of police?

  • That is horrible, Centro!
    I will pray for you and your country.

    Why are the police on strike? Though, for some reason these events don't surprise me. Is it not so that Brazil has been rather disorderly for some years? At least, that is the impression I have from some things people have said about that country.

  • They haven't had a raise in 5 years, so they're on strike. Surprisingly, lots of good folks are supporting them in this. Maybe they'll get their raise, but at the cost of how many lives?

    The second Monday of October is Columbus Day, not Indigenous People's Day. Without Columbus discovering the Indies and giving them the True Faith, they would still be cannibals worshipping the Sun.

    Actually, I'm in a different city in Espirito Santo, which isn't too great because the military hasn't arrived here yet. If we were under martial law in this city, it would be better and life would continue to some effect.

    In Rio, there are violent protests happening, and the police in Rio are saying that tomorrow they are going on strike. God help us if they do. The whole damn country will be burnt to the ground.

    The death toll in my state has gotten over 100 in these 4 days. The gangs are posting themselves online in videos committing horrendeous murders. No major news agencies are reporting on this yet. I plan to fly out of here in March but don't know how access to the airports will be. If they go on strike in Rio tomorrow, this is probably a communist coup d'etat. The country will be nearly abolished.




    Use caution if you watch that video. There is extremely graphic, violent content.

    I just confirmed that the police in Rio are on strike. This is most probably an orchestrated coup d'etat. It's seriously a civil war at the moment.

    Over 100 dead in Brazil as police strike spurs anarchy

    By Paulo Whitaker and Pablo Garcia | VITORIA, BRAZIL
    More than 100 people have been reported killed during a six-day strike by police in the Brazilian state of Espirito Santo, as hundreds of troops patrolled streets attempting to keep order with schools and businesses closed and public transport frozen.

    The Army mobilized airborne troops and armored vehicles on Thursday to reinforce roughly 1,200 soldiers and federal police trying to contain the chaos in Espirito Santo, a coastal state north of Rio de Janeiro.

    Most of the violence was centered in Vitoria, the state capital and a wealthy port city ringed by golden beaches and filled with mining and petroleum companies.

    "We cannot establish definite motives for these killings at this time as the crisis is still ongoing," said Gustavo Tenorio, a spokesman for the police union. "But an initial evaluation by the homicide division seems to indicate that a majority of those who have died were tied to drug trafficking or some other type of crime."

    Police in Espirito Santo are demanding a pay rise amid an economic downturn that has hammered public finances in Brazil, with many states struggling to ensure even basic health, education and security services.

    There are fears strikes could spread to other cash-strapped states that are not paying police and other public servants on time.

    Luiz Pezao, governor of Rio de Janeiro state, one of Brazil's most indebted, has already warned federal officials he may urgently need the backing of troops or federal police soon.

    There are rumors of a pending police strike in Rio, a tourist hub that in three weeks will host one of the world's biggest Carnival celebrations, which draws partygoers from around the globe. Security officials have denied any such stoppage is planned.

    In Espirito Santo, soldiers patrolled abandoned streets in downtown Vitoria, stopping and frisking the occasional pedestrian against shuttered storefronts.

    State officials said they needed hundreds more federal troops and members of an elite federal police force to help establish order and make up for the absence of some 1,800 state police who normally patrol Vitoria's metropolitan area.

    "The Army's involvement in Espirito Santo is temporary. It is here to make government negotiations possible and bring peace to the population. We are not going to replace the police," General Eduardo Villas Boas said on Twitter.

    "HOSTAGES IN OUR HOMES"

    The state government has not released an official number for killings since police started striking on Saturday, but a spokeswoman for the union representing police told Reuters early on Thursday it had registered 101 homicides.

    That would be more than six times the state's average homicide rate during the same period last year. The Globo TV network, citing security officials, reported that 200 cars were stolen in Vitoria on a single day, 10 times the daily average for the whole state.

    The state's retail association said businesses have lost 90 million reais ($28.87 million) since police walked off the job.

  • I've seen the footage.  Pure evil.

    Centro, please, get the hell out of there NOW.  Run for your life.  

    I fear Brazil is going to turn into a Venezuela shithole.  You've got to get somewhere else.  Are you able to leave the country?

  • Venezuela got to where it is because their government is inept. Also socialism.

    You gotta move to one of the southern states where it's safer.

    True.  But the police are on strike.  I mean...doesn't that say that government is inept?  

    Centro, you need to go on a vacation or something.  If you could get to one of these southern states, if that's all you can do, then do so.  You've got to get out of there.  Be careful.

    Schools cancelled in Brazil following "Purge" like chaos

    Political Outsource has obtained an email from a Brazilian student in the city of Espirito Santo that writes school has been cancelled following the chaos ensuing around the nation that many residents are comparing to the "Purge".

    The school, called the Federal University of Espirito, sent out an email to students on February 6th, alerting students that all classes have been cancelled until further notice due to the chaotic, dangerous events ensuing in cities across Espirito Santo.

    The full (original) email in Portuguese: [site has image of e-mail]

    A Brazilian resident translated the email for Political Outsource: [image of translation]

    Chaos ensued in the state of Espirito Santo, Brazil after the military police went on strike due to low wages. Many Brazilians have told Political Outsource directly they are very fearful that the daily work commute may become extremely fatal due to the lack of police response to these dangerous rioters and assailants. Read the full, breaking news story by clicking here.

    A Brazilian resident tweeted out to Political Outsource, saying that the current chaos in Espirito Santo, Brazil will shut down almost all services Monday.



    Looks like a bad situation.  How does this affect nearby countries like Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay?

  • Mother said 100 years ago: "If my requests are not fulfilled and men do not mend their ways, various nations will be annihilated," or something to that effect. That party in Rio is also pure evil from what I've heard of it. I don't think anyone is safe anywhere, even in the U.S. considering we have nearly come to similar situations in this past year.

    Wives and family members of the police officers on strike are pictured above blocking the gates to police headquarters, allowing police to claim they are trapped in by protestors without having to officially go on strike, something that is illegal per state law. However, after sending the army, a Brazilian court has officially recognized the police as on strike, and police officers are now beginning to fear if the army is coming for them, too.

    In an attempt to unofficially strike, the police are calling their wives who are blocking the gates "protesters". Today, a Brazilian court officially recognized the protesters and ordered them to stop, yet to no avail. Now, more than 1,800 troops have been sent in an effort to not only break up the protests, but essentially do the polices job.

     Thugs pictured in this tweet wield weapons and masks, and is a small glimpse into the choatic [chaotic] turmoil ensuing in Epirito Santo, and eerily similar to the movie "Purge".

    The country of Brazil has sent in over 1,800 troops in an order to calm the chaos ensuing in cities like Vitoria in Espirito Santo, however, the death toll continues to climb. As we enter the fourth day, there are no signs that the killings intend to slow down despite soldiers continuing to detain hundreds of armed assailants, looters, and thugs across the state.

    Espirito Santo is a tiny state on the coast. Likely very little. Nothing happens in Uruguay, they're one of the more stable countries there.
