Members of the Public Security Front in the Chamber criticized the parade of the São Paulo samba school Vai-Vai for showing military police officers characterized as demons. The group paraded on Friday (10) at the Anhembi Sambódromo with the theme “Chapter 4, Versicle 3 – From the Street and the People, Hip Hop: A Paulistano Manifesto”. According to deputies, the red costume worn by some members of the samba school, with bat horns and wings, associates police officers “with evil”.

“How far have we reached?” asked Alberto Fraga (PL-DF) on his X account (formerly Twitter). Sergeant Portugal (Podemos-RJ) classified the presentation as a “total inversion of values”. To the newspaper “O Estado de S. Paulo”, Sargento Gonçalves (PL-RN) said that he supports the relegation of the samba school “which promotes this type of absurdity”. For him, there is no justification for “such imbecility against the police”.

Kim Kataguiri (União Brasil-SP), in turn, lamented Vai-Vai for “rejecting its banditry parade”. “Wings demonizing police officers and paying homage to criminals could be seen at the group’s presentation. Guilherme Boulos (PSol-SP) did not hold back: he participated and declared his support. Zero surprise, right?” said the deputy, who is a pre-candidate for mayor of São Paulo.

Senator Jorge Seif (PL-SC) also went to social media to criticize the São Paulo samba school. For him, Vai-Vai’s costumes “demonize the police and victimize criminals”. The parade also featured members dressed in black and white striped clothes, with an identifying number in the center of the upper part of the costume. “It is disrespectful towards thousands of police officers who risk their lives for our protection”, protested the senator.
