Torture is in epidemical in Brazil. There are hundreds of records of ill-treatment and extra-judicial executions commited by policemen in police stations and prisons. Check this link for three other cartoons on subject:
Images are copyright-free and you are invited to forward it.

Grupo Tortura Nunca Mais is one of Brazilian human rights group which have been denunciating such kind of brutality and now is suffering judicial censorship. In their web site, GTNM exposed torture commited by Roberto Jaureguiber Prel Junior, federal police "delegado" (similar to a sheriff), against two men in 1996. They were arrested by allegations of "disrespect towards authority" and tortured at Superintendência da Polícia Federal in Rio de Janeiro by Junior and other federal agents. Due a lawsuit from Junior, it was ordered that everything about him should to be removed from site.

In this same Superintendência, in September 7, 2002 (independence day in Brazil), Antonio Gonçalves de Abreu, kitchen assistant, was tortured and murdered.

Please, regarding all these disgusting facts, I beg you all to send protest letters to Brazilian authorities:
