Good spot by Myths:



Riot police: An officer grabs the child who has just witnessed his father and grandfather being assaulted

Before everyone goes, Awww! it was other officers that had assaulted the two men:



Prosecutors in the country are investigating a policeman who attacked the men outside Guimaraes stadium

Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

The video is appalling.

Mr Magalhaes said police had allowed him and his sons, who were wearing Benfica jerseys, to leave the stadium before other fans because the children were being crushed.
Video footage shows the family by a low wall, where one child is sitting and drinking a bottle of water as police held rival fans inside the stadium to avoid clashes in surrounding streets.
An officer questions Mr Magalhaes, then punches his elderly father before using a truncheon to beat Mr Magalhaes, who was on the ground, while his nine-year-old child screamed 'dad'.
Another policeman, wearing riot gear and carrying a shield, grabs the child to keep him away from the scene.


It's good to see Portuguese prosecutors are taking action - let's hope the days of police brutality in Portugal being swept under the carpet have gone for good.

Baton attack' policeman faces 8 years in jail

'Baton attack' policeman faces 8 years in jail


Created: 22 May 2015

Filipe Silva, the policeman who violently attacked two men after a football match in Guimarães last Sunday, has put himself at risk of an eight year jail sentence.

Silva has not apologised to José Magalhães (pictured) or his father, both of whom were attacked by the PSP commandante in front of José's 9 and 13 year-old children outside the Guimarães stadium.

A formal complaint against Silva’s violent behaviour was presented in court yesterday with statements from eight eye-witnesses who saw an attack which appeared to lack and credible legal motivation.

Businessman José Magalhães formally has accused the officer of two crimes of bodily harm each carrying a possible prison term of four years.

The complaint refers to an abuse of power, excessive use of force, and of aggression in the case of the 70-year-old father who twice was punched in the face by the angry officer.

Silva claims that Magalhães spat in his face, an allegation denied by Magalhães and the eye-witnesses. Even if this were true, the violence of the resulting attack was far in excess of any legitimate response.

As the attack was filmed and broadcast live, fans who had gathered in Lisbon watched it on the big screen in Marquês de Pombal square and reacted violently, later clashing with police in a night of violence.

Alongside the court action by Magalhães vs Comandante Silva there also is an internal investigation in to the Guimarães incident and into the violent clashes in Lisbon. A report must be produced within 30 days.

Peace-loving Portugal is let down by this sort of incident which not only was broadcast live, but later was seen across the world with the clip available almost instantly on YouTube.

The point of contact for many visitors to Portugal is at roadside police inspections which are intimidating and scary with officers often noted for their fundraising skills rather than communication abilities.

Riot police in full battle dress called to the open market at Barão de São João in the Algarve market hit the headlines as an example of disproportionate police action which left some in tears and many visibly distressed and intimidated.

'Proportinality' is often the complaint from the public which understands the need for a robust police force, but feels there has been an increasing in heavy-handedness, especially where motoring fines are concerned.

Filipe Silva, already known as a ‘handy’ policemen, filmed using a baton to hit a man already down on the ground, claims that Magalhães ‘provoked him’ because he know there was a cameraman nearby. The clip of the incident now has been viewed worldwide.

Knowing there was a film crew nearby was all the more reason for Silva to behave in a dignified manner that would have been a credit to his uniform, rather than making a name for himself for batoning an unarmed man already on the ground and thus gaining unwanted worldwide attention.

Whatever the result of the inquiry and court case, the damage to Portugal’s peace-loving image is done.

Not sure, Sabot. Portugal is changing, and cleaning up its act. Light sentences for dirty cops may well be a thing of the past - and remember, that went all round the world within minutes.

What do you thing would have happened to Gonzo and co if someone with a cameraphone had photographed Leonor Cipriano's injuries and put them on the internet within hours of the torture occurring?

They'd be lucky to be out of jail now.

Such a pity someone didn't send it global, Bonny. Sadly, we have the disappearance of Madeleine to thank for Portugal cleaning up it's act. That in itself is a disgrace.

on guardian video you can see that the child who is being shielded by the police has wet himself...no doubt the experience of seeing your father beaten by men in black will live with the child for a long time

sad to say just another example of how the police over react here...24 arriving with machine guns at a car boot sale last year and the great "bingo" bust etc etc

From DN:

http://www.dn.pt/inicio/portugal/interior.aspx?content_id=4575214

The commander of the EIC PSP claimed in self the occurrence of Sunday, the truncheons to fan are justified because this threatened and spat in his face. In turn, José Magalhães denied having insulted and spat at police and advanced that will process the officer.

Unfortunately for the police, the entire incident was filmed, and viewers can see for themselves that no such thing happened, and the police are outright lying.

Makes you wonder how often they've lied before, when there was no camera present, doesn't it?

Business as usual until now.   Hopefully things will change for the better.

It does confirm their attitude towards the Ciprianos and potentially to Kate.  

However, we knew that.

23/05/2015 08:55 Police accused of assaulting young Filipe Silva is complaining target presented in February by the father of a minor. By Secundino Cunha

"Punching in the head, kicks, plateaus, did a bit of everything." The report is of a 15 year old who says he was beaten repeatedly by Guimarães PSP Deputy Commissioner filmed last Sunday to beat two supporters of Benfica at the end of the title game. The CM yesterday tried unsuccessfully to hear Filipe Silva.

The father of the alleged victim filed a complaint against the Deputy Commissioner, the Public Ministry (MP) of Guimarães, last February. "I never said anything to me about this issue," he says.

The pictures of a barbaric aggression The event took place precisely in this month, following a brawl situation between two youth groups. "Myself and three friends were locked in a room and they [the complaint seeks more police] beat us even without us to say anything. The Deputy Commissioner wanted we assume things we have not done," said the CM the youth, on condition of anonymity, saying the situation repeated twice a week. "They came to bring us into the pushup position and to step us the finger. A colleague of mine, just because he sat, took a slap," he recalls. "The first time, I thought being an isolated case, but the second did complaint to see if at least he soothed," said the father of the child, which coincidentally also attended on-site aggression Sunday.

Worry not - Montclair or Morais will be along in a moment to claim that the film was doctored.

I confess, it's always entertaining to watch Montclair stand on her head and turn reason and logic inside out in defence of the indefensible.

Thing is, every nation on earth has, at some time, a problem with dirty cops - it's an organisation made up of human beings, therefore it is inevitable.

But Portugal is the ONLY supposed democracy in which the rotten apples not only seem to be accepted, but glorified - just look at the way Amaral is feted by some. The websites set up to glorify him, the fawning praise heaped on him, despite his more than chequered career, or the fact that most of his former associates have been disgraced, like the torturer Tavares de Almeida.

Or are awaiting a court date, like the ex-mayor of Portimao, or in jail for the safety of the public while his various trials go on, like Cristovao.

The people that fawn over these disgraces to Portugal are the very people that would - rightly - call for the heads of any UK officers caught behaving like they have done.

But for some bizarre reason, they think dirty Portuguese cops are acceptable. Don't they think the good people of Portugal deserve better than this?

On the flip side, how many good Portuguese citizens have contributed to the cop's fund?

This is a large part of the problems surrounding this Case, that so many of the supposedly ordinary Portuguese people jumped in to interfere and support the perceptions of Amaral with lies and distortions. Almost as though there was a need to do so. As though they expected that The PJ on The Algarve would be scrutinised for what in fact has come to light.
It isn't that there are bent coppers everywhere, but that this particular bunch were known to be bent and needed to be protected.
Followed closely by a bunch of British Citizens looking for a witch hunt.

The Command Braga PSP should now decide the future of sub-commissioner Filipe Silva, who, on the 17th, assaulted a Benfica fan, ahead of minor children, near the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques, in Guimarães. This Monday an enlarged meeting will be held in Braga, with all the division commanders and squad command of the district - meeting in which, the CM was found, the Deputy Commissioner Filipe Silva will participate as commander of the Police Criminal Investigation of Guimarães. Despite to rely on the almost unanimous solidarity of the control elements, including the district commander Gomes Valley, Filipe Silva today can be removed from office until the surveys, though open, are completed. In addition to the criminal complaint filed in Guimarães Court by Benfica fan José Magalhães, for bodily harm, the Deputy Commissioner faces an investigation by the General Inspection of the Interior and disciplinary proceedings initiated by the PSP. On Facebook, a page has been created in favor of the Deputy Commissioner, which has nearly 2,500 likes . Another page, demanding the expulsion of the PSP graduate, has more than 15,000 subscribers.

http://portugalresident.com/shock-as-pj-inspector-gets-17-year-jail-term-for-murder-after-being-absolved-of-crime-last-year

Eight months after being cleared of murder and be allowed to return to work, PJ inspector Ana Saltão has been slapped with a 17-year jail term and forbidden “from exercising her job” for five years.

Coimbra’s Court of Appeal sentenced the 38-year-old inspector yesterday, overturning the decision made by judges last September, who ruled there was not sufficient proof to convict Saltão for the shooting of her husband’s grandmother.

According to news reports at the time, the decision had left “the whole PJ in shock”.

But now it is Saltão’s lawyer who describes herself as in shock over the new ruling.

Talking to reporters after sentencing, she said: “I am absolutely surprised, as I know the whole case very well and there is nothing that can allow for a conviction at this time. We shall be appealing to the Supreme Tribunal of Justice.”

Thus, for now, Saltão remains a free woman – pending the outcome of the next appeal.

The case goes back to November 2012 when Saltão is understood to have shot her husband’s grandmother, 80-year-old Filomena Gonçalves, 14 times.

When Saltão was cleared of the charges against her last year, judges said that the chances that she had committed the crime were “very low”, although they could not confirm with certainty that she was innocent.

But yesterday, Coimbra’s appeal court bench showed that they had “no doubts that the defendant killed her husband’s grandmother”, wrote national tabloid Correio da Manhã, explaining that the motive had been to inherit the grandmother’s money.

According to CM, both Saltão and her PJ inspector husband had “serious financial problems”.

The sentences handed out yesterday involved a 16-year jail term for murder and a four-year term for the crime of “embezzlement” – relating to the fact that Saltão is believed to have used a Glock pistol stolen from a colleague in the force.



Don't ask me; yet another bizarre ruling that seems to suggest that the law really is an ass in Portugal.

The Portuguese courts do know they are operating in 21st century Europe, I assume?

.

Utterly bizarre - staggering and terrifying that supposed judges could come out with a statement like that.
