Rio de Janeiro Governor Wilson Witzel said on Friday that criminals of Rio de Janeiro could blow a rocket in the western part of Rio de Janeiro, as shown by RJ2.
"We do not want to see scenes like those we saw in God's city, so that, if we were authorized by the UN, in other parts of the world, we were empowered to send missiles there and blow up those people."
The Governor made a statement at a ceremony in Novi Iguac, in Baixada Fluminense, which was greeted by the present after the speech.
Witzel also said that Rio de Janeiro is in terror.
"Because we live in a state of terrorism, not only in the state of Rio de Janeiro, but in the communities where they have infiltrated. It is not the community that causes terrorism, because there in the CDD[Cidade de Deus], in Rocinha, Vidigal, there are decent people who work and learn, "he added.
Hours after a commentary in the speech, the governor said that in his statement, he compared the actions of traffickers from Rio with the armed conflicts that exist in the world.
Witzel also stressed that Rio is experiencing the state of terrorism in communities, which makes thousands of families hostage violence.
Regarding the term "these people", the governor said that it refers to the thugs who faced the police and shot down the wall in Cidade de Deus in a clash last Wednesday. In his opinion, they would be attacked by rockets during the war conflict.
The president of the Human Rights Commission Alery, Ms Renata Souza (PSOL), issued a statement criticizing the statement.
Secondly, the Governor's statement reveals an authoritarian and violent mentality, and that public security is done through strategy, prevention and intelligence, not by missiles and by final execution.
NGO Rede de Maré said that the governor's statement sounds like a letter of free hands to law enforcement officers in the Rio de Janeiro factions. Although it is a non-governmental organization, no serious public security crisis in Rio will be resolved with more violence.
