"Marcelo Guimarães, 38 years old. Assassinated while on his way to work by the Military Police in Cidade de Deus - Rio de Janeiro. Brazil begins its first working day in 2021 with a centuries-old question: Until when?"
The victim's own daughter, Vitória Guimarães, accused the Military Police of having killed her father.
Furthermore, Marcelo's death caused widespread riots in the community. After the event, the atmosphere became tense in the neighborhood, and some people tried to close the streets, in which inhabitants placed barricades made of furniture on the Linha Amarela, one of Rio's main thoroughfares.
