    Strange reaction for a man who, because of the power he holds, should be more respectful.

    If Jair Bolsonaro wasn't involved in Marielle Franco's murder, he just needs to stick to the facts. Shooting the messenger, in this case by threatening Globo TV, won't help clear the air.

    Bolsonaro has no problem having people being killed. He needs to take a page out of La Asesina's play book, and just collect convicted violent criminals like in Vatayon Militante/Pingunos to do the job. I mean, what could possibly go wrong...?
