The Roraima Student Association (Assoer) accuses a Military Police lieutenant of assaulting a 17-year-old trans student during a disturbance at the Severino Cavalcante Militarized State College in the Pintolândia neighborhood, west of Boa Vista. The confusion occurred this Wednesday (31).
According to Assoer, the officer slapped her hand and called the student a “faggot”. The military occupies the role of inspector at the school. Because it is militarized, the Department of Education (Seed) shares management with state military personnel.
This Thursday (1st), the president of Assoer, Endrio Gabriel da Silva, and the student registered a report against the police officer at the Civil Police’s Center for the Protection of Children and Adolescents.
They reported in the BO that he called the teenager a “faggot” and told her to “f*** you”. The victim, still in the report, said that she felt discriminated against and coerced. A video circulating on social media captured part of the widespread confusion after the episode.
Sought, Seed reported that it became aware of the case through social networks, said that it is an isolated fact and that “the management of the College intervened immediately, even triggering the parents of the students involved.”
In addition, he stated that he “does not condone any homophobic attitude, discrimination of any kind or attitudes of violence, whether psychological, physical or moral within school environments”, adding that “he is in contact with the management of the College to clarify all the facts With responsability.”
In the incident report, the president of Assoer and the student said that there was a disagreement between the military police officer and the student after he yelled at her class.
“Complementing what the victim put in the OR, there was a disagreement between her and the server [policial militar], after the server yelled at her gang. Then there was a change in the tone of voice of both parties and other students involved, until the server pushed her and she started recording, which resulted in the video”, said Jean Farias, financial director of the Association that follows the case.
Assoer informed that it will forward a letter to the State Department of Education requesting the opening of a fact-finding process through an inquiry for “internal resolution of the problem in the school.”
Although Assoer informed that it was a case of harassment, aggression, and embarrassment foreseen in the Statute of Children and Adolescents and “possible homophobia”, in the BO record, the crime of “harassing, embarrassing, humiliating, harassing or threaten, by any means, a candidate for an elective office or holder of an elective mandate”, provided for in the Electoral Code.
The g1 asked the Civil Police if there was a mistake in the classification of the crime in the document record, and also if the report will be investigated, but did not receive a response until the last update of the report.
