14 year old Boy shoot 5 times in the chest in Execution attempt by the Brazilian police

March 24, 2011 5:57 PM
(CBS/Reuters) A Brazilian court ordered the arrest of police officers who were filmed torturing and shooting a 14-year-old boy in August of last year.

The security camera video - released for the first time this week - showed four police officers firing a gun at the boy during a raid in a poor district of the Amazon city of Manaus.

The boy, who was shot five times in the chest area, was hospitalized and has recovered fully.

Three other policemen who do not appear in the footage were also arrested while the investigation is being carried out.

They claim to have fired against the boy in self-defense after they found a gun near him.

The seven officers will remain in prison until the end of the investigation. The boy and his family were included in a program that protects crime victims and witnesses.

  • That's awful.

    In other news, Brazilian police are demanding higher calibre sidearms and hollow tip ammunition.

  • If that was some 14 year old celebrity visiting the area and they didn't know who he was, that would be top news on the front page of every worldwide news site.

    • i lived in Brasil for almost 8 years and believe me this kid was probably a criminal,like in the middle of the night he and his buddies come into ur home put a pistol on ur head,rape ur family and robbed everything u have and guess what happens when police arrest him:NOTHING because brazilian law does apply only for 18y.o and above..i'm sure this kid is just a problematic cancer for society and i that doesn't mean they had to kill him but change the law,i'm a pacifist and i hate violence but the More..

    • And the resolution is shooting children. How about pushing the government to provide opportunity and development? Brazil suffers from extreme poverty a breeding ground for heinous crimes.

    • i saw on the news today an doctor saying the shots was at close range the bullets went straight through the chest without causing further damage..luck him and i'm not taking the cops side but i'm sure this little bastard wasn't a saint and the cops probably had enough of arresting him and the system let him go free.

  • Well you have to be a bit of a sociopath to want to be a police officer in the first place, so I%u2019m never really surprised at the constant rate of police brutality and murder videos. There on a power trip and you better play along or you might get shot or abused, whenever I get pulled over I play super nice%u2026you never know what will trigger those crazies.

    • You're comparing Canadian police officers, to what you see in this video? You've got problems. And probably a long criminal history right?

    • You just don't like the person in uniform or have a some diluted perspective from watching the less than 1% that make it on the news or internet. I get along with almost all of the new people I meet when I'm out and about that don't know what I do for a living. I'll even listen to them bash the cops that drive by and laugh. You'd probably actually get along great with a lot of cops if you knew them. We're not all "crazies"

    • I don't give a shit about the cops story. That ended when they shot an UNARMED person 5 times point blank. He could be Charles Manson for all I care. If the kid broke the law, Fine arrest him if he has a gun then they have a right to defend them selves and shoot him. BUT at no time in the video does he show or reach for a weapon. He is scared shitless and only wanting to live. It is my hope that these wast of sperm cops enjoy the most unpleasant prison with the mutant erection of a career dog ra More..

    • EXACTLY. This kid was up to no good (found gun near him). The cops don't fuck around down there because there is a HUGE, and I mean HUGE amount of gun violence with kids as young as 5-8 wielding the guns.
