Is There a Serial Killer in Sao Paulo Targeting Gay Men?

Brazilian police are investigating whether a possible serial killer is behind the murders of more than a dozen gay men in a park in suburban Sao Paulo. Police chief Paulo Fernando Fortunato tells the O Globo newspaper that 13 gay men were killed there between February 2007 and August 2008. He says police are not sure whether a single person is responsible. Undercover police are now patrolling the park at night. [AP]

    THIRTEEN???

    THIRTEEN??

    what the fuck?

    It has taken 13 murders of gays in a gay cruising ground before the fucking police notify anybody!!

    There would be hell to pay here in the UK if THREE gay men were murdered in similar circumstances, let alone 13 – the police would be besieged with protests, the newspapers would be full of editorials asking ‘What the hell is going on, what are the police doing?’

    Just what are the fucking police doing there??
