Brazil cops could teach Ferguson cops a thing or two about summary executions of unarmed kids

This video, in Portuguese with English subtitles, comes from this excellent report from Insight Crime. In it you witness how Brazilian police pick up young kids off the streets, take them to a secluded woodland area and kill one of them (they actually thought they’d killed two, but by some miracle one survived). Here’s an extract from the report, but the whole thing is…well, it’s wow.

The officers kicked the boys to check they were dead before driving off, M said. In additional footage released later by Fantastico, Lima and Magalhaes discussed the killings.
“Two down,” says Lima. “If we do this all week (it will) keep going down. We hit the target.”

The video.

So don’t do these things in front of people’s houses, learn from the experts, Brazilian police have been quite literally getting away with murder for decades.
