I am not well versed about South America. I have 'known' two guys from Chile and a friend had a long fling with a rather nice guy from Brazil who we got to know quite well. Ah, there was that ex Ansett Airlines guy who hooked up for a while with a guy from Uruguay. I remember now. He made hats, for women to wear to the Melbourne Cup. There is a name for people who make hats. Maybe it will come to me. Milliner, that's it.
Anyway, I diverted before I even started the post. An innocent Brazilian lad was shot dead on the London Underground by over zealous police a some years ago.
I am in the state of Victoria, so NSW court laws don't apply. I will suggest that Sydney police killed a Brazilian too with a combo of capsicum gas and taser shots. The Sydney lad may have been behaving erratically and stolen a packet of biscuits, but it will be very interesting to know why the Sydney cops did him in.
It seems being Brazilian is dangerous.
But no country has shooting like the the US. A lad wearing a hoodie was shot dead by a vigilante. The lad's crime was that he was not white and he was walking through a gated community. If the reportage is correct, he was returning from the shop having bought some lollies for his younger brother. Fortunately, after a very poor police investigation and poor work by the prosecutor's office, the whole matter has blown up. America is not a third world country. Things like this ought not happen.
But neither Britain or Australia have clean hands, especially when it is law enforcement that does the killing.
