This chapter examines how some kinds of police training in Brazil and its most visible component, hazing, may have contributed especially to shaping a Militarized Police murder dynamic, comparing direct perpetrators of violence and indirect atrocity facilitators. It investigates a range of possible relevant causes for systematic state-sponsored and executed violence in Brazil, including reinforcing roles of atrocity facilitators and perpetrators. The chapter also evaluates the testimonies of the fourteen atrocity perpetrators documented in this study as well as the nine interviewees for whom there is no direct evidence of their having tortured or murdered systematically for the state.

Keywords:   police training, hazing, Brazil, Militarized Police, perpetrators of violence, indirect atrocity facilitators
