Violence in São Paulo: the revenge of the Police

More than 100 people were killed, allegedly because of "confrontation with Police forces", from Sunday to Thursday.
Reports say that 43 policemen were killed last weekend.
Despite negatives from the Police Administration, newspapers have accused the Police forces of acting with excessive violence, killing innocent people in the process.

The Police Chiefs, the Governor of São Paulo, and the Minister of Justice came to the media to deny that Police are acting arbitrarily (e.g., killing people who could have been arrested), and to affirm that, if abuses were committed, they shall be investigated and punished.

The population, who was scared with the criminals, now is fearing the Police.
