In my mind, the most disturbing images in the movie were those that showed the way law enforcement officers handled prisoners. These people were crammed into really small jail cells.
Cells that could hold five prisoners had almost 20 in them and it caused all of them to have to sleep on top of one another. Officers also were beating the criminals and causing anger amongst them. That is very inhumane treatment for these people. Although they have broken the law, they still deserved to be treated in humane ways. That is what stuck out to me most, because if it can happen in Brazil, it can happen anywhere.
