Da Silva overload in this post.
Jail guards will have some explaining to do. They were transporting a group of prisoners but failed to keep them contained, the prisoners broke free and caused a riot. Ensuing violence lead to the deaths of two people and several injured, including four guards. Military police and fire fighters had to be called in to contain the situation. It happened in the most dangerous city in Brazil – Caruaru in the state of Pernambuco.
Both victims were 17 year old and were both inmates. Marcelo Cícero da Silva, born in Agrestina was imprisoned for rape. Rioters set him on fire and burned him to a crisp. Wellington Manoel de Souza was in for traffic related violation. Rioters smashed his head with rocks and sticks. They tried to set him on fire too, but that was prevented by the police.
Five of seven rioters were minors from FUNASE (an institution for minors where they are sent to be rehabilitated, instead of being jailed) – one was 15, one 16 and three were 17 year old. The other two were 18 year old Eduardo Jansaro da Silva nicknamed “Dudú” and likewise 18 year old Luiz Carlos da Silva nicknamed “Indio”. The former has been serving time for drug trafficking, robbery, assault and murder. Not sure about the latter. They’ve all added rioting, double murder, attempted murder, bodily harm and damage to public property charges to their existing convictions.
According to agent Dominic Emerson, who’s been a prison guard for 8 years, the motive for the killings was rivalry between natives from Caruaru and those from Cabo.
