Brazilian Police Arrested Over 'vigilante Death Squad'

Quote:
Nineteen police officers have been arrested in Brazil on suspicion of belonging to a death squad which has allegedly killed at least 40 people.

Federal police accused the men of forming a vigilante group with the aim of "finishing off" criminals.

A number of women and children without any criminal links are also believed to have fallen victim to the gang.

Officials said the group, which was active for 10 years, often staged shoot-outs to cover up the executions.

Investigators are searching a rural area of Goias which they believe may have been used as a make-shift cemetery by the vigilante group.

Police spokesman Elias Abraao said the death squad mainly targeted drug dealers and thieves, which "it felt it had the right to get rid of".

Most of the suspects are high-ranking officers, including the deputy commander of the Military Police in Goias state.

Brazil 'police gun-running gang' busted
22 December 2010

Police in Brazil say they have dismantled a criminal gang which is accused of running an arms trafficking and extortion ring in a poor neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro.

Around 200 officers swooped into the Duque de Caxias area and arrested at least 20 alleged gang members, 13 of whom are policemen.

The gang is one of many originally formed to combat drug traffickers.

But police say these "militias" often end up running criminal enterprises.

Armed wing

Judicial authorities had issued 34 arrest warrants for the alleged gang members.

The warrants were based on wiretaps which suggest the gang sold weapons to drug dealers.

Two of those arrested are local councillors, who were elected in 2008 to represent the neighbourhood.

Police believe they ran the militia, while 13 police officers, two members of the military, five former police officers and a police constable made up its armed wing.

Fourteen alleged gang members are still on the run.

Analysts say around 60 of Rio's neighbourhoods are controlled by gangs once created to protect residents from drug gangs, but many of which are now running the extortion rackets once controlled by them.
