Confessed Murderer of Indian Released from Jail in Brazil

The man who confessed to the murder of Dorvalino Rocha, a Guarani Kaiowá leader from the Nhanderu Marangatu land, who was killed on Christmas eve in the municipality of Antônio João, Mato Grosso do Sul, in Brazil, was released from prison.

After confessing to the crime in a testimony to the Brazilian Federal Police, João Carlos Gimenes, who works for the Gaspem company and had been hired as a security guard by the Fronteira farm, was released from prison by the Federal Police officer Penélope Automar.

The officer released the murderer from prison after finding out that he had never been arrested before and had a good criminal record, a permanent home where he could be found if necessary and would not jeopardize the investigations after being released.

The witnesses of the crime reported that four security guards got off a car parked next to the MS 3984 highway and headed to a camp of Guarani Kaiowá families. According to those witnesses, the murderers shot the victim several times without giving him any opportunity to react.

Despite their fears, the Guarani Kaiowá families are determined the stay in their camp next to the highway as a means to pressure the authorities to return their land to them, which had its bounds officially confirmed by a presidential decree issued in March 2005 and from which they were evicted by a judicial decision early in December of last year.

    Yeahhhh !!!!
    Therefore any Brazilian who has not yet murdered someone can do the same.

    Just confess that you were wrong to have killed someone, and you will be freed.

    Because obviously there is no reason, in a country with the rule of law such as Brazil, that the same law will/should not be applied to every citizen !

    Lula said it clearly on the corruption crisis :
    Every one guilty should be punished !

    Looks like that now not only politicians have impunity but every citizen that kills someone and just confess, provided he had no criminal record.

    Law is the same for everyone in Brazil !

    Right ?
