Do you trust Brazilian institutions? Please take a look at the internet site of Bernardo Santiago. This chap is my younger brother. He was 18 years old and loved life. He was murdered in 19/02/2002. The accused? The son of a Police Chief in the Brazilian capital who had previously murdered Italo Borges, but still was kept out of prison (in Portuguese).
Also take a look at my personal internet site (in Portuguese).
