The first school shooting in Brazil

This morning, at Tasso da Silveira Municipal School, a former pupil, 23-year-old Wellington Oliveira, walked into an eighth grade classroom carrying a .38 caliber and a .32 caliber revolver. He killed 13 people, including himself. This was the first school massacre in the history of Brazil.

The shooting occurred just days before the President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, flew to China for a six-day visit. This was not a coincidence. This was another example of the “price tag” strategy employed by Europe and America. During her trip to China, Rousseff signed about 20 trade agreements worth $1 billion. I am sure this made the West very angry, angry enough to kill somebody.

This will not stand.
