A few years ago, Ronaldinho scored twice to conquer the Bernabéu. When he received applause from the audience, he did not expect that 15 years later, he and his inmates would win the Paraguayan National Police Headquarters Prison Cup, plus 32 pounds of pork. For Brazilians, as long as they love football, they can play anywhere, even in prison.
Behind the prison life, it reflects the country's economic level, government capacity and national cultural literacy. Especially in South America, this connection is even closer. There are a total of 15 countries in South America. There is a huge gap in the level of economic development. The stronger the land area, the higher the country’s economic level. Therefore, Brazil and Argentina have long occupied the largest economy in the country. Stable and clean, this country, which has the bottom of the country in terms of size and population, has the ability to become one of the representatives of South American football.
So today we are going to talk about prison life in South America. In prison, you can even play football. Is that true?
The prisons of South American countries are generally in line with the global market. They are distributed according to status and are mainly based on labor reform. Important people who have reached a certain level of money and power and can enjoy luxurious treatment; and the characteristics of South America: all over the world. Drug dealers control the drug business outside in prison.
Ordinary people mostly commit minor criminal offences. They have served their sentences in prison for a short time, but many are regular visitors. There are free tortillas and sauces in the prison. It would be better if there was meat in the curry. Although they are responsible for farming and growing food, they will take off their clothes and fully display their tattoos and muscles. This is a symbol of strength.
These people are not only familiar with prison guards, but also well versed in the upper and lower classes and unspoken rules in prison. For example, the mobile phone robbing on the street is lower-end than the bank robbing, because the latter thinks that he is robbing the rich and helping the poor. Liangshan comes down to help the righteous man. Let the two sides stay together.
The most typical of these is the Palma Sola prison in Bolivia. It is called a prison but is actually a village. It adopts the criminal autonomy system and can bring family members in prison. Prisons have their own rules and classes. You need to pay protection fees and rent when you are in jail. The former can guarantee that you will be robbed of money and get the boss's preferential treatment in advance, while the latter allows people to have a house to sleep instead of being cold. floor.
Here, every criminal has a gun in his hand, but not everyone has his own key to the room. The key to the prison room is in the hands of the prison gang boss. As long as you are willing to spend 200 dollars, you can get your own house key; as long as you save enough money, you can redeem yourself after your sentence is over, but money in this place is not everything.
There was a baker in the prison who was sentenced to three years for rape. He dragged six members of his family to start life in the village. His daily task was to provide bread. As the only person in prison with this craft, did he make a lot of money? Of course not. If you don't make bread, those who eat it will kill him.
Compared with the oppression of the people at the bottom, those with high wealth and power in South America are different. The Mala-Garcia Shimabara Prison, once governed by Argentina and Uruguay, is a standard super five-star hotel. In 1973, the two countries reached an agreement that the island belongs to the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was once the exile of several Argentine presidents (Irigoyen, Peron, and Frantisi). If you don’t open a prison, it won’t hurt to turn it into a tourist attraction.
与最底层人民的压迫相比，南美洲那些拥有丰富财富和权力的人有所不同。 Mala-Garcia Shimabara监狱曾经由阿根廷和乌拉圭管理，是一家标准的超级五星级酒店。 1973年，两国达成协议，同意该岛属于阿根廷布宜诺斯艾利斯省。它曾经是几位阿根廷总统（伊里戈延，佩隆和弗兰西西）的流放地。如果您不开设监狱，将其变成旅游胜地也不会受到伤害。
The life of drug dealers is more interesting. The prison is more like an office place for them, or the kind protected by the police. High-level drug dealers can use money to buy everything, pervasive, even prisoners and prison guards. I heard that you are an honest prison guard? I heard that you need to pay a loan? I have already paid for the money, so you can take care of the rest.
Compared with the famous escapes in history, the escapes on the continent of South America seem unremarkable, but the consequences are more serious. Criminals usually rush out in the form of mass riots, such as the 316 escape in Brazil two days ago.
Affected by the epidemic, four semi-open prisons in the state of São Paulo, Brazil suspended family leave, which caused dissatisfaction among prisoners, resulting in a total of 1,356 prisoners escaped, and even some prisoners hijacked prison guards. The semi-open prison is prepared for those who are about to be released after the completion of their sentences. The time for reform through labor is shortened. Inmates can go out to work and attend classes, but they must return to the prison at night. This kind of prison is designed to provide a buffer zone for prisoners to return to society.
Such a large-scale escape naturally attracted the military. After the arrival of the Brazilian army, they quickly took control of the scene and conducted searches for the first time. Fortunately, this escape did not cause armed conflict.
In April 2018, inmates in a prison in northern Brazil were supported by armed organizations. The combined criminals simultaneously launched an attack on the prison, blasting a hole in the prison wall. The police suffered from the enemy and eventually paid the price of 1 death, 1 serious injury and 5 minor injuries.
In January 2018, a riot broke out in a prison in the metropolitan area of Goiás state in central Brazil, resulting in at least 9 deaths, 14 injuries and 106 escaped from prison. Only 29 escaped prisoners were re-arrested that afternoon.
The other two of the top three in South America are more honest. Although there have been cases of escape from prison, the number and scale are much smaller than Brazil. On August 19, 2013 local time, a prisoner escaped from the Ezeiza prison in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, and 13 prisoners escaped.
According to reports, the 13 prisoners dug a hole in the cell. After digging through a concrete layer of nearly 30 cm, a tunnel of one meter high and two meters long was dug underground to the outside. After going out, the prisoners still had to cross 30 meters of open ground, cross the first barbed wire fence, and the other three cordon lines to be considered a successful escape, but they did.
Uruguay is not a big place, but what caused a sensation was the escape of Morabito, the "king of cocaine". This person escaped for nearly two decades before being arrested in the capital of Uruguay. He escaped again last year during the transfer to the Italian government. Morabito once controlled about 80% of the cocaine market in Europe. In the 1990s, the quantity of drugs shipped from Brazil to Italy was measured in tons. He was a true Italian mafia.
As the largest country in South America, Brazil far surpasses other countries in terms of geographic area and total population, but its crime rate remains high. Prison management is the biggest drawback of Brazil’s public security system, and the government cannot even control prison order.
The aforementioned Brazilian prison escape incident is just the tip of the iceberg. The more serious Brazilian prisons are "gang fires" and "personnel overload."
According to data released by the Brazilian Senate, from 2008 to 2018, in just 10 years, the number of prisoners in Brazil soared from 451,000 to 841,000, which is 8 times that of 30 years ago. For comparison, the number of people serving prison sentences in our country is about 1.6 million, twice that of Brazil, but our total population is 7 times that of Brazil. In other words, there are 306 criminals per 100,000 Brazilian residents, and their crime rate has never fallen.
In recent years, there have been endless prison riots in Brazil. Prison riots have occurred from Amazon to Paraná, each time at the cost of dozens of deaths. Until July 29, 2019, a riot broke out in a prison in Altamira, Para, Brazil. The incident lasted for six hours, causing 16 people to be beheaded, more than 40 people suffocated to death, and some even played the dead as football. This anti-human behavior reflects the problems of Brazilian prison management.
The reason is that the two major gangs in Brazil have been kept in the same prison for a long time. The accumulated strength of both sides broke out on the same day, using murder and arson to pledge sovereignty. One of these gangs is the "Capital No. 1 Command" known as the No. 1 gang in Brazil, and he was founded through a football game. I have to say that while Brazilian football gave birth to angels, it also casts demons.
In addition to the social situation, Brazil’s prison infrastructure is also very bad. Over the past 10 years, the number of criminals in Brazil has doubled, but the facilities in prisons have never been upgraded. As long as there are riots, the number of prisoners in prisons is overloaded. The situation of more wolves and less meat makes prisoners even basic life. Unable to maintain, of course, it is easy to cause riots.
The root cause of this situation lies in the backwardness of Brazil's own economy. After the fall of the military government, the democratic government began to control the country, but they learned the internal friction of Western developed countries rather than development. In order to be able to come to power, domestic parties continue to raise welfare to the people to obtain votes. Brazil’s social security expenditure reached 37.63% of the overall fiscal expenditure in 2015, which is the level of a Western developed country, while Brazil’s per capita GDP is a developing country. National capacity.
To put it bluntly, the money used to serve the people is used for the welfare of the people. If you want to get rich, you don't build roads. In 2018, Brazil launched a new round of prison rectification plan, costing 32 million reais (equivalent to RMB 44.84 million) to reform the country's prisons. For Brazil, this is an unprecedented large-scale effort.
As another big country in South America, Argentina is completely different from Brazil. The country’s crime rate is the lowest among the big countries in South America. As mentioned earlier, the 13 people escaped from prison is already a major incident. When Peron was in power, he promoted big governmentism, made a large investment, and concentrated the power of the whole country to force production, while increasing the income of the working people. Let Argentina, an exporting country, suddenly become the granary of Europe, with an average annual GDP reaching the first place in South America.
In order to improve welfare, the Peron government did not hesitate to issue administrative orders to compulsorily issue money. The positive side of this situation is that people's lives have been greatly improved. The quality of the people is high, and the infrastructure is relatively complete. It is the country with the highest education level in the world. one. It gave birth to a group of optimistic and positive people, so in the past half a century, their crime rate was far lower than Brazil.
After the fall of Peronism, Argentina entered the military government's jurisdiction. The local and the central government had a serious interaction, coupled with the lack of overall design. As a result, Argentina's current economy has been swinging between government intervention and full marketization. Economic development can be said to be sitting roller coaster. In addition, the country is positioned as a major grain exporter, and its industrialization is lagging behind and lacks room for improvement. As a result, the gap between the rich and the poor in Argentina is obvious, the number of slums is soaring, and the criminals are mainly concentrated in the bottom people.
This is why Argentina is eager to win the World Cup in recent years. The Hercules Cup is more like a kind of sustenance and hope. In a country that has been finalized, using an external stimulus to inspire the people may be able to inspire this generation and improve national productivity.
Playing football in prison is nothing new in South America, a football-loving continent. China also plays table tennis. This is just to let the prisoners vent their energy and increase entertainment. There is no good saying. Prisons all over the world have the same principles and policies. The only difference is the national conditions. For example, the land under our feet has relatively few violent prison incidents. The far-reaching impact can be traced back to the 1990s, and there are sufficient long-term violent prison exercises experience of. In this comparison, the moons in foreign countries are not particularly round.
