Brazilian Killed by London Police Had All His Papers

    During a joint news conference yesterday in London, Brazilian minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, declared that Jean Charles Menezes was in England with a legally valid visa.

    At the same news conference, the British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, declared that he believed the family of Menezes should receive some sort of indemnity although the decision was not his to make.


    Jean Charles Menezes, 27, was a Brazilian from the state of Minas Gerais. He was an electrician who was mistaken identified as a terrorist and shot dead by London police last Friday.

      WTF
      I am muslim and I am proud to be a muslim and anyone who thinks that all muslims are terorists can put his head into a hole and shout “I am a dumbass!” For the illegal entrance into the europian countries question:” DO U THINK THAT SOMEONE HAS ESPECTED ALL HIS LIFE TO LEFT HIS COUNTRY AND HIS FAMILY TO GO ON ANOTHER CONTINET TO LIVE, OR IS IT MAYBE BECAUSE OF THAT HE OR SHE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY, OR FOOD”. I am from Bosnia and Hercegovina and I was illegaly in Italy: YOU specialy ENGLAND and USA u are living from the us that we were in war.

      Mr Menezes
      This man wasn’t accidentally mistaken for a terrorist … he was deliberately executed …. and many people are asking why.
      Did Mr Menezes work as an ordinary electrician within construction … or was he much more cleverer than this … and working perhaps for the Britsh Government ?
      It would answer many people’s questions surrounding his very suspicious execution.

      Danger everywhere
      Brazilian are the most unassuming and self-effaced
      group of aliens in US. The same must happen in England. They do not engage themselves in subvsersive activities and dream to pass for nationals. That
      poor boy was victim of a perverse combination of pÀ³lice paranoia and his guardian angel´s negligence.

      Illegal Aliens Stay Home
      Keep your asses in your own country where they belong and you won’t get f-cked up. See what happens when you do wrong and enter a country illegally. You have to take whatever shit goes down in that country.

      Brazil needs to get it together. She is not a poor country. Start sharing the wealth instead of a few people hoarding every dime. Then your citizens will not have to illegally enter other people’s countries and get their asses kicked.

      America and Europe are targeted because of their racist thug policies towards nonwhite countries. America is the richest country in the world because of her trigger happy killer mentality which she inherited from her Anglo Saxon mother England. If the UKs thug cops are anything like America’s anyone who is not platinum blonde and blue eyed is fair game.

      The Anglo Saxons are gun happy, racist and murderous. If Brazil would stop trying to be a fake white Anglo Saxon country and get herself together then there would be no need for her citizens to risk life and limb in the US or UK.

      Since 1997, 308,000 asylum seekers were refused residence in the UK, and only 72,000 are on record as having left. Just from that group that’s theoretically 236,000 illegal stayers who may decide not to stop on an anti-terrorist police command. That’s an accident waiting to happen in the current climate.
      Mr Menezes is reported today as having an expired student visa. That may have influenced his decision to run, tragically.
