40,000 Minors Disappear a Year in Brazil. Police Should Search for Them Faster Now

    The immediate investigation of missing children and adolescents became mandatory in Brazil since last Monday, January 2, when the law sanctioned by Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on December 30th became effective.

    Before the law, searches would only start 24 or 48 hours after the family registered the occurrence at the police.

    The law establishes that notified institutions must communicate the fact to ports, airports, highway patrol, and interstate and international transportation companies, supplying all data necessary for identifying the person.

    Currently, according to the estimates of governmental and non-governmental organizations associated to the National Network for the Identification and Location of Missing Children and Teenagers (ReDESAP), approximately 40 thousand minors disappear per year in Brazil. 10-15% of them remain missing for long periods. Many times, they are never found.

      Should searches faster…..
      ….does not mean will or would !

      You have also laws against corruption. Not respected at the highest levels of brazilian leaders.

      Same for social inclusion.
      Same for wealth inequality.
      Same for taxes.
      Same for piracy.
      Same for crimes.
      Same for racism.
      Same for education.
      Same for slavery.
      I could continue for hours…….

      In Brazil a law means……just NOTHING or just another written law that is anyway NOT applied.
