“We have a very expensive, inhumane, degrading and useless prison system that only serves to humiliate people or infiltrate the organized crime world,” Mendis acknowledged, noting that mass imprisonment is more important than solving the problem of violence. Public safety.
The recent wave of violence in Manas, the capital of the northern Amazon, “demonstrates this situation because initial reports indicate that buses, public buildings and orders to attack people came from inside prisons.”

Agreed to hold a second chamber hearing to clarify the doubts and difficulties in complying with this decision.
Opening the discussion, Mendes cited a report by the Parliamentary Inquiry Commission into the prison system set up by the Chamber of Deputies in 2009, stating that ‘the majority of prisoners in Brazil receive worse treatment than animals: waste as human beings. ‘
There are numerous and dangerous examples of physical, psychological and sexual violence, depositing people in unhygienic conditions, experiencing torture and ill-treatment, and the dominance of criminal units in prison environments, the magistrate said.
Brazil ranks 26th in the list of countries with the highest prison population in the world, despite a declining prison population during the Covit-19 epidemic.
