Things which seem inexcusable on their face can sometimes appear much different when all the facts are in..... hope you can keep this updated.

What I'm hearing from folks within the Brazilian community is a concern that these guys are acting like "pitboys". In Brazilian cities, pitboys are thugs that are typically young men from middle-class familes. They are well trained in some sort of martial arts and use their skills in a menacing way, often brutalizing homosexual men.

There is a nightclub in the area that attracts a rough crowd. It also has nights dedicated to the Brazilian community. This club has been astoundingly violent, but the surrounding municipality too ****ing corrupt to pull their license. After a show there, these three scumbags drove off to nearby McDonalds, where they set their sites on another young Brazilian man, and started beating him up. A friend of the victim tried to interfere; he too was beaten. Both victims were then stomped on when When a friend of the victim started to interfere, he got beaten and stomped on as well (literally). Last I heard, the initial victim is still in intensive care, struggling with the head trauma and paralyzed legs.

The pitboys will have their day in court, if they show up.
