In Brazil, there are many human rights issues that affect the nation in a variety of ways, for example, violence against police civilians and political racism. In an article written by Luis Kawaguti & Gary Duffy for BBC Brazil, the brutality of Police and negligent officials were spoken. Reports of rouge cops making meaningless killings of revenge or taking the law into their own hands were made by many citizens in Sao Paulo. A number of officials made comments stating that they take this issue of police negligence very seriously. Many have replaced and tried to persuade these people.
