During the pogrom at the residence of the President of Brazil, the attackers stole weapons

In Brazil, unrest does not subside. The day before, a crowd of protesters broke into the residence of Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the building of the Supreme Court and Congress. Taking advantage of the New Year holidays and the fact that apart from a few guards in the buildings of the government complex there is no one, the crowd of attackers staged a real pogrom.

According to the minister and the head of the public relations department, Paulo Pimenta, the protesters managed to steal the weapon, which belonged to the protection of the head of state. Lethal and non-lethal weapons were stolen from the office of the State Security Secretariat. The number of missing weapons was not specified, but according to the police, on the available video footage, at least eight gun safes were emptied.



Apparently, the attackers had accurate information about where the weapons of the presidential guard were stored. According to Paulo Pimenta, the rioters tried to set fire to the premises. Thanks to the armored doors, they were unable to enter the office of the head of state. In total, about 5 thousand people participated in the riots. Tear gas, water cannons and stun grenades were used to disperse the protesters. The police dropped them into the crowd of attackers from a helicopter. More than 400 people were arrested as a result of the dispersal of the riots.

Until the end of January, the president of the country introduced a state of emergency in the capital of Brazil. The head of the Federal District of Brasilia has been dismissed.

In turn, former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, whose term expired on January 1, condemned the riots.

    Here it is the revelry of true democracy. cool same when people can express their opinion type? It does not matter that everything is accelerated by the technologies of the orange revolutions. The information stuffing went on, the trolls shook the situation and flooded the mass into the streets. cool same state where the freedom of rallies and meetings. Today they elected a president, tomorrow they kicked him out. There is something to look forward to. Or like in Mexico, so that the drug cartel decides who lives and who kills. And here, many were against the increase in the National Guard and other law enforcement agencies. Well, look at what happens when they save on internal security.

      Taken off the tongue! What is surprising is the extent to which it is now possible to control the masses of people. And people fall for it. Sharpe's theory in action.

      Do they save money in Brazil?
      Money is spent there "be healthy" ...
      In terms of defense spending, Brazil has almost always been in the top 15 countries in the world.
      In terms of public spending per capita, figures are approximately comparable to Russia or Poland. So there is no special "savings".
      Maybe it's not all about the money?

      Each country has its own rules and its own names, the fact that we have a secretariat, they have a civil service engaged in the protection of the president.

      A bad example is contagious - if this is possible in Ukraine and the United States, then why is this not possible in Brazil.
      The thrifty Brazilian rebels also "stuck" in the pogrom, unlike their "brothers" from the United States, but everything went very peacefully and none of the individuals were seriously injured, not counting the dismissed officials.

      A real "peaceful" pogrom in Brazilian style. drinks

    Go crazy. What kind of presidential guards are they stealing weapons from, they don’t even steal them, but they break in in a crowd and take away barrels and cartridges.

        It would be better if these pants in the photo were bought for themselves than pistols. Or do they have such a life that if you are without a gun, you will be left without pants? belay

    In the first reports, they wrote about 170 arrested, now the number has reached 400. The figure, apparently, is not final.
    Well, the gun safes have been cleaned, so why waste the good. How is Mayakovsky about this:
    "What is worse than my Nina, the ladies themselves?
    Bring the piano into the hut, the gramophone with the clock!"

      Now it's up to 400.

      You can arrest at least 4000 privates, it's useless ... There are still no organizers among this number and never will be.

    It would be interesting to impose on the revelry of democracy a light frost of -20 -30 degrees C, with a breeze.

      When you're on the head with one hundred m water cannon will fall!

      By the way, yes ... my eye also twitched - but I didn’t fully understand what I had read. It’s necessary to put it into the helicopter somehow ..
      Bravo!

    The Americans show the Latinas who is the boss, there are too many feeders Alya Soros and mafia money in controlled dollars. It can be seen that the new government wanted something, now they will have to correct their independence.
