Cops throw a horse in jail for kicking a car in Brazil


Cops throw a horse in jail for kicking a car in Brazil

By Julio Severo
Brazilian police threw a horse in jail for kicking a car.
To the surprise of its owner, Faceiro the horse was put behind bars for nearly 24 hours after being accused of criminal damage in the city of Nossa Senhora Aparecida, northeast Brazil.
The horse was detained from Sunday evening until Monday afternoon to compensate the angry car owner who demanded the horse should be locked up until she had received payment for the damage.
A video of the dejected animal incarcerated in a military police prison cell has generated both amusement and anger on social media. Worse: Brazil is being mocked in the international media.
There is an urgent need for the police to incarcerate multitudes of real criminals in Brazil, especially corrupt politicians. But this need has never, in centuries of Brazil’s existence, been fulfilled. Brazil has been filled of corrupt politicians since its discovery in 1500.
Brazil is the largest Catholic nation in the world where impunity is the true law of the land. Impunity if the criminal is rich or prominent. But there is law for others, including an innocent horse.
“Nossa Senhora Aparecida,” the city where the horse was incarcerated, is named after a black statue that Brazilian Catholics interpret as Mary, the mother of Jesus. The black statue is officially the Catholic patroness of Brazil and Brazilian Catholics, who love syncretism, pray to Aparecida, which has a massive sanctuary in Brazil.
If Brazilians can make the foolishness to pray to a black statue, why cannot they make the foolishness to incarcerate an innocent horse?
As Jack Palance used to say in his Ripley’s TV show, “Believe it or not!”
