Photographer's Note

Only a view of the Police car on the duty, this is a small one, there is one larger.
My region isn't violent, but in these last decades the criminals are causing constant damages to Brazilian society. In a small community like ours you can fast identify who are the bad guys and pay attention on them and be careful with strange people. But the violence is here too.
What is the cause of the increase of the crimes in Brazil in these last decades? ---Some says it is because the new democratic constitution created in the 1980's that is so mild against the criminals, giving them many chances. Others said it is because Brazil became the link between the drug producers and the drug market in Europe and USA; we are used as a passage territory and our youth was contaminated by the drugs. Others said it is the lack of formal education and the breaking of the family when most of population left the rural zones and small cities and moved to metropolis and let the children alone. Others said it is because this in a unequal society with a very high variation of incomes, but this isn't true because it was the same during ages we the violence came out only nowadays.
The governments we had during the democratic period never got to solve this question and the case of Rio de Janeiro is even the worst, it is a whole rotten social structure.
And to be protected the cars, houses and shops got high fences, alarms, vigilance cameras, more guards, insurances..
You see a criminal being caught and in few days he is walking in the street and he do the same crime and he is caught again and he is free fast again..Then when a citizen do the justice by his own hands...

Apenas uma foto de um carro da polcia no seu trabalho; esse o carro menor, h uma viatura maior.
Minha regio no violenta, mas nas ltimas dcadas a violncia est causando grandes danos ao pas. Numa pequena cidade como a nossa conseguimos identificar os maus personagens e ficar de olho neles e nas pessoas estranhas.
Qual seria a causa do aumento de crimes depois dos anos 1980 ? --- Alguns dizem que a culpa da constituio criada durante a redemocratizao, que branda demais com os criminosos. Outros dizem que o Brasil se tornou um territrio de passagem para as drogas e que elas contaminaram nossa sociedade. Outros dizem que a falta de empenho na educao formal e a quebra da famlia quando do xodo da zona rural e das pequenas cidades para as metrpolis. Alguns dizem que devido a imensa desigualdade social dentro do pas, se bem que ela sempre existiu e a violncia aumentou foi nos ltimos anos.
Os governos que tivemos no perodo democrtico jamais conseguiram resolver essa questo e o caso do Rio de Janeiro ainda pior, com uma estrutura social totalmente apodrecida.
E para se proteger carros e casas e lojas necessrio cercas mais altas, alarmes, cmeras de vigilncia, guardas, seguros..
triste ver criminosos sendo presos e sendo soltos dali alguns dias, tornando a fazer mais crimes para serem apanhados e serem soltos novamente... Ento o cidado por vezes faz a justia pelas prprias mos..
