Here in SW Algare we had a 17 yr young girl complain to her mother and authorities about her stepfather sexually abusing her. The authorities went over to talk with the stepfather. Girl goes missing just before Christmas '14...to be found dead not much later, apparently killed by the stepfather. Stepfather escapes, leaves country with car of mother.
Note: recently an 35 yo DJ was murdered by members of Setúbal's police during their routine work. The portuguese police systematically fails the victims that claim for help, and, sometimes, just because (apparently the DJ just tried to check out the shortest way to get home when was stricken by the police), kills innocents (of course, criminals still at large, but that is not police's responsability as the Portuguese law system basically favours the criminals). Is this Portugal? Yes, absolutely, this (and the Huge State Corruption) is Portugal. An old member of the EU club. It shows how deeply is "european dream"s failure. Little surprise as for the "eurocrates" in Brussells all were concentrated in the "markets", "stats" and transcontinental huge businesses, never in the the real people. "Whats the next" is the question, because Portugal cannot be left by itself (the Portuguese hate each others - I don't know if it is related to the huge inequality or if the brutal inequality derives from that hatred, but, logically, the inequality made the hatred almost structural * - and there's neither any culture of "sacred" respect of the human lives nor any kind of culture of respect of the "other". It would be, again, a totalitarian and brutal regime; State's corruption and State's terrorism - like in Russia
- would be either hidden or blatantly manipulated by the "propaganda"s machine, like in Russia
where terror is the main method
* muslims dosn't respect no-muslisms (just need to read the Alcoran). If you get just a bit closer you will see that both main branches of the islam hate each other (we just need to watch the news to see the brutal atrocities). Get even closer and you will realize that smaller derivations inside the main branches also disdain each others. The remaining is like an enlarged family, like the ones whom used to ride the whole Syria. Portugal is not so different. But the Portuguese are nor the Syrians. The Portuguese did not fight for the defeat of the fascist regime: it was the military whom turned down the fascist regime (without a real fight... no deaths, no wounded...) in April 25, 1974. The Portuguese do have not any ethical (or other) education (they despise studies because they think they may achieve the Mercedes of their dream without it - so studying is not important... - and it is just that the portuguese emigrants do everywhere. German cars and football is enough for this very shallow people **. So little surprise if their children after 2 or 3 generations still the worst at school among all emigrants descendants...). Lack of basic civic education, and/or some other cause, they fell "natural" to cheat the other portuguese and they do it all time, at least if they live in Portugal (they have a corrupt mentality and they imagine that is a kind of "portuguese culture", so they suppose all portuguese would do the same and they try to cheat in first place). So is not so unnatural if the portuguese hate each others... The blatant inequality in Portugal got so huge because the cheaters at top of the State institutions, governments, public companies, banks and so on, did cheat in a great-great scale.
** the scale of domestic crimes in Portugal is almost 4 times bigger than Spain (and Spain has lots of emigrants from south-america, Morocco and Romania, whom may contribute significantly for the number of crimes of this kind). It was almost 45 women killed both in Spain and Portugal but Portugal is 4 times smaller and has much less emigrants than Spain. The abuses in Portugal are scaling (likely that they used to be completely hidden - even if many knew them!) and they got even more vicious. So we cannot just talk on an uneducated and shallow people that like german cars...
