This chapter describes the lives of four emblematic police torturers and murderers in Brazil during crucial periods in the thirty years from 1957 to 1987, explaining that each violent life represents a different generation of police work, with two among the four from the military government generation. It provides a documentary picture of some of the men who carried out atrocities in Brazil over a thirty-five-year period and explains how these violence workers manage the secrecy of their atrocities.
