The corporation also released photos of the seven knives that would have been seized at the school over the last year.
The shared management with the PM started on CED 01 of Estrutural in 2019, after a vote by the community. In an interview with TV Globothe spokesman of the corporation affirms that, in the place, “the Military Police had some resistance, mainly on the part of the civil servants”.

“Put your hand back, you. I’m serious. Aren’t you macho? Aren’t you macho up there? In the midst of the others, aren’t you macho?”, said the soldier.
The student asked if he was going to be beaten inside the school, and the PM replied: “If you need to. Do you want to see it? Come threaten me… I’ll tear you apart.”
According to a CED 1 student at Estrutural, students are treated like criminals within the school. “Here it seems that we are (sic) a bunch of bandits, not students. They treat us (sic) not like students, it’s like bandits”, she says.

The CED 1 of Estrutural, which is one of the 16 schools with shared management with the Military Police in Brasília, was, from the beginning, a place of friction between students, teachers and police officers.
In November last year, students did a project for Black Awareness Day, which addressed police violence against black youth. According to teachers, the school’s disciplinary director, who is PM, asked that the posters be removed.
Teachers and students classified the measure as censorship and undue interference in the pedagogical part of the school. The PMDF denied the request and said, at the time, that it was “just a consultation, with the school board, on the topic addressed in the students’ work”.
In 2019, the military erased graffiti with the face of former South African president Nelson Mandela – an icon of the struggle for racial equality – that had been painted on a wall before the PM’s administration (see image above). At the time, the direction of the Educational Center decided to redo the painting.
