A sad week in Rocinha
This photo is the police and a resident carrying the body of my friend Mikael Patrick, 27 who was killed by a police bullet in the "Valao", which is a area at the bottom of Rocinha. He will be missed!
These are casings from bullets fired by the police. This was just one area of the favela but the shootings took place in about 5 different areas of the community.
I wonder, where do all the bullets go?
When will this stop? We are not against policing. What we want is a respectful police force that doesn't abuse us and treat us like we are all criminals, thats all!
Here is a video taken from a resident of Rocinha. Its a long video but you can get the idea of what its like here when there is an operation.
In Rocinha, all we want is peace and safety for all residents!
