The Pedrinhas prison complex in São Luís, in the state of Maranhão, Brazil is notorious for murders of inmates. Last year, 62 prisoners were killed there. A few weeks ago a group of inmates attacked another with bombs.
Latest video from the Pedrinhas prison, recorded on December 17, 2013 starts with a view of Brazilian flip flops. As the inmates walk across rainwater covered floor, the hues soon turn to those of blood.
Three gang members, identified as 21 year old Diego Michael Mendes Coelho, 46 year old Manoel Laércio Santos Ribeiro and 34 year old Irismar Pereira were each stabbed multiple times and beheaded.
According to the Government of Maranhão, the inmates are divided between state and federal prisoners and the rivalry between the two is high. The CNJ (National Council of Justice) report concluded that the Government has been unable to curb the violence. The report also cited the overcrowding at Pedrinhas (prison for 1,700 houses 2,200 inmates) as one of the reasons for violence.
Three Brazilian men were beheaded, none of them was Da Silva. What the fuck?
