Among Christians, the code employed to express strong disapproval is, “Why would you…?” As in, “Why would you want to discuss an ugly thing like slavery in a class at a university?”
So my student gave a presentation on the Brazilian narco-slums and police repression and simultaneous collaboration or even leadership in the narco-gangs, which is a major issue for many reasons.
The police in Rio de Janeiro have arms normally used only by armies, and the narcos have better arms than many armies have. There is a proposal that Brazil intervene in Switzerland and the United States to stop the flow of arms at its source, the same way the United States intervenes in Colombia and Peru to kill coca plants.
Someone asked the Christian question: “You are really interested in crime and police stories, aren’t you?”
