Brazilian Youth Rise Up Against Police Brutality | Multimedia | teleSUR English

Local News said Wilton Esteves Domingos Junior, 20, Wesley Castro Rodrigues, 25, Cleiton Correa de Souza, 18, Carlos Eduardo da Silva de Souza, 16, and Roberto de Souza Penha, 16, were the victims. The killings have outraged activists in Rio de Janeiro leading to marches calling for accountability and justice.

Earlier this year in April, protests also erupted in Rio de Janeiro following the police killing of 10-year old Eduardo de Jesus Ferreira outside his home. The official version given by local Rio de Janeiro authorities claimed the boy was injured in a crossfire involving drug traffickers, but his mother said he was shot by police. President Dilma Rousseff expressed her solidarity with the boy’s family ordering the government to conduct investigations into police abuse.
