omissão, descaso e hipocresia

Este caso não foi aceito pelas autoridades brasileiras e órgaos competentes.

Este é um relato real.

I suffered bullying from childhood because I was often mistaken for a girl, evasive avoided contact with people, fearing my own identity. Because of this I have developed defenses regarding relationships and frustrating tendency to reading, seeking knowledge in order to justify my problems. But I became a connoisseur of cultures and languages, as for being "different" but suffered no discrimination by sexuality in principle, but the distance between me and the rest of the world, becoming the target of ridicule and often nasty comments even from gays, and harassed by nasty people and humiliated by people whose should understand me.
For me positively identified children as soon as I asked to be my real intentions, but I never would abuse a child. But teenage boys attracted me, dividing me from becoming a father and husband, wanted for my children, or assume that I had become a young homosexual and I go down this route, but without ever being promiscuous.
When my father died, my younger sister mentally became ill, my family went bankrupt, relatives and supposed friends moved away and I started to be further discriminated by not having a relationship or a girlfriend, being homosexual is not be in the streets seeking men, for continuing to live with my mother, for not having married, for not having time for another of completed college (psychology and pedagogy), for not keeping me in a steady job, for having abandoned the practice in Academy (martial arts), for having done various courses alternatives and never exercise them, by learning other languages ​​and not teach ... well, I being discriminated against, either by relatives or people from my living how could I take my life project ahead? Even my desire to adopt a child was given up ... However, I abandoned my goals for freedom to act within my preferences though in secret to no longer have to justify to anyone else.
For eleven years I lived in a big house with a pool, where my nieces when children playing with other children, boys eventually went to attend my house and never were no major problems.
At about thirty years without real reason my older sister Sandra morally defames me by insinuating that I being bisexual and love to children would pedophile and whenever I played with a kid came a rumor. She my sister came to insinuate that I could have abused her daughter when was two years, without ever were proven, as I discovered too long after she Sandra used phoning relatives and acquaintances will inventing rumors about me, concluding with that's why I suffer discrimination for many years. For it to I move to the current address I by Sandra and her husband Jilmakson whose ironically was transvestite, I suffered the terrible accusations of rumors heard by locals, as I had already been arrested, drugged me and even prostituted me even killed a child, and also that I had left fled from where I lived, facts which never occurred ...
In about 12 years I am living with my elderly mother disabled physically and my youngest sister with special needs in the same place and in this time we are suffering from neighbors: discrimination, harassment, vandalism, humiliation, by having already often resorted to police action that in most cases not solved the problem, but as my house has already been invaded, shot and stoned many times, there have been at least one lawsuit against the authors, but not that they be disturbed by the fact because although it remained hidden practicing such acts and now after a few years they decided to act openly as before when the lawsuit, and as before summoning people to participate in their "crimes" against me and my family, including my tenants whose not even pay for housing.
Myself because my bisexuality and like to keep in touch with young people and as I like children a lot I was taxed as a pedophile, have suffered persecution and defamation, as lynching, attacks with use of stones, sticks and even "shot" but luckily I survived. The absurdity of such events still occur I appealed for justice to help me solve this problem. The responsible are residents in Caraguatatuba Street, Vila Silva Telles, Itaim Paulista, São Paulo (SP) where I live with my family.
I've done several complaints proven and expert reports, but with no success, and contacted some facts about the prosecutors local, but in this particular case which involves "discrimination" I could not count on any support, and basing in it is that many events occurred. They Authors use the argument that I'm a pedophile and talk about my involvement with minors or whose children do not even I know which never had any approach and this has given them credit against the police, possibly because there is a false complaint that without proof. But causes distrust of authorities and arouses anger in people.
I quote some of the leaders whose names have already answered some criminally but nothing has changed:
Sandra Aparecida Correa Udson 53, resident of No 45 Caraguatatuba Street, Vila Silva Teles, which with his former teammate Jilmakson Barbosa Pinheiro which is living with another man, both founded on the rumors cited since 2000 recruited people from the neighborhood to antagonize me with argument that I being bisexual and also I would like children I was pedophile, they along with some neighbors, frightened people who came to visit me, and yet in 2003 spread around the neighborhood that I had abused my nephew, Jilmakson's son with only 3 yars at the time .
Everton Conde de Jesus 30 years, resident in 89 of the same street instructor of taekuondo which usually maintain sexual acts with children, he's strangely beloved by vicinity, along Willian 25 years, resident at 17. Since I was living in that place, he Everton innate children and adolescent boys against me based on rumors mentioned, I was cursed deer, fagot, rapist, pedophile, Joe Mad, persecuted, stoned and even suffered bombings of deception on the part of Everton accompanied minors, and I had suffered several threats since coming to be attacked by people linked to Everton, having been the target of my house slings and bombs several times, having been shot up. He sent his boys to expel any child or teen who approached my house, antagonizing any visitors whoever I was, and still does.
Edmilson Simões 47 years resident in 14B, repeatedly brought people against me, always insulted me, made obscene gestures, indecent proposals, and participated in some threatened attacks against my home and family, and even used his house to promote parties untill dawn, with participation of minors and booze, not allowing my family and I could rest, the police were always thrown, but did nothing, Edmilson along with Everton and William always present at these parties, with others already responded to criminal prosecution in 2009 by cited some facts - criminal court forum of São Miguel Paulista.
Patricia Bezerra resident on10, 40 years, along with solange Simões 39 years resident in 14B, Edmilson's sister, always participated in the acts cited by allowing their minor children to walk with Everton and also practiced the actions already mentioned, the making so far.
My current tenants Jorge Targino de Godoy and Carmelia Monte Negro de Almeida, joined the others mentioned and began to make threats and insults constantly, even after having lawsuits against them, the house has already been claimed for having inspired the term they movie and yet remained and they shall have a son Cristian, teenager with cerebral palsy whose never had any contact with me, but he was used to accuse me that I have tried or wanted abusing him abusing grounded in falsehoods already cited, the case was taken to 63 DP whose responsibility was delegated Dr Ruas, this after Carmelia Tues cursed and threatened my mother and told the police to attend, I had tried to abuse her son. And all this is because these neighbors want to avenge the lawsuit already answered by them.
Other tenants, Fatima in 2009, the mother of Carlos Eduardo 7 years, used to go out at night being pregnant to consume injectable drug leaving the boy alone, I contacted the tutoring assistance and nothing happened, but that tenant accused me of abusing her son under proposal the cited neighbors and then she just disappeared with the boy. And in 2008 I had a dentist as tenants named Elton Sousa Rosa Fernandes, his partner Maria Claudia dos Santos and a stepdaughter 10 years. Elton promoted by early morning encounters with teenagers in the house and when I questioned him about it, he insulted me and Elton also made threats, as well as his companion and soon I discovered that they were there because they had been infiltrated by my aforementioned neighbors. Elton along with these neighbors caused many disturbances due to which it was moved a criminal case which has been cited also involving Everton, Willian and Edmilson for disturbance caused by them and minors who frequented the house of Elton, meanwhile Elton and his companion also insulted me morally and hinted that I would be interested in teenagers whose frequented his house. Absurd conclusion for those whom attended college!
In 2002 I had made a complaint of injury, defamation and slander by neighbors at 50 DP Itaim Paulista, but no further. As on other occasions later without having any further, just reprisals from perpetrators.
In October 2005 I was walking at night to my house, because I had left to buy medicine for my sister, I was almost fatally attacked with stones, sticks, iron and shot up by 8 individuals whose connections maintained with the said neighbors, especially Everton Conde de Jesus, with the argument that I had attacked a child - BO 5836/2005 50 DP - without prosecution. Due the attack I lost some vision in my right eye, balance on the right side body, I felt failure and a bullet mark in the middle of my forehead.
In 2006 my home was vandalized crates after an investigation by Police Chief Carlos Laet holder of 50 DP , whose authors were Everton Conde de Jesus with teenagers under the connivance of the aforementioned neighbors, the case did not proceed. And also the same year I was attacked with stones by 2 indviduals in front of my house, whose used to meet with Everton, but the case did not proceed well.
In 2007 there was a 19 year old guy whose named Jonas approached me and I went to visit, being sleazy small and unintelligent despite having completed second grade, was the target of my neighbors until I host him temporarily for a few days. And when the boy was discharged to avoid comments, because even at times my neighbors Everton and his boys were coming provocations and threats to call the police saying I was abusing a disabled child as they had done at another time with the 3 disabled children of a friend whose house I usually attend. Jonas pulled away for 2 days and back to fetch his belongings with him came three boys and Jonas entering into my home,the boys began to shout that he would leave whether as he were a child and were suffering abuse because they had combined with Jonas what they would do. In a few minutes there were more than 20 people with sticks and stones tried to break into the house to catch me, the police appeared at the time that they had managed to enter the house and did some blatant individuals, while neighbors hid in their homes after having watched each other part of the act, among them were two minors. And one of the greatest was Rodolfo Santos Shmidt, brother of Alice friend of my sister Sandra Aparecida aforementioned. Alice whose brother intervened, so that I was not stuck with that also dispense others (BO 2308/2007. Yet the next day when I out of my house the way to the Police station to give evidence of the fact, I was attacked with blows on the head with rafters, one wrapped with barbed wire by 4 boys among them two of whose had previously attacked me and everyone known to have connections with the much quoted Everton Conde de Jesus (BO 2377/2007 DP 50), attempted homicide qualified principal delegate Carlos Laet, the case never has continued. I carry sequels of this event.
In 2008 when the tenant was evicted, Elton dentist, my house was shot under the auspices of the aforementioned neighbors (BO 5489/2008 DP 50) delegate Dr Moreli holder, but the case did not proceed well.
As the cases cited numerous times and have had no further, today I am suffering the same hardships and always with arguments which undermine my conduct and my sexuality, and I hope that as this may be the solution.

Universal Movement of Consciousness
by Edson Udson (all rights reserved)

A great movement for peace, love and freedom around of the world, but to obtain results and do solve problems as poverty, abuses and violence is necessary "union" and "good will" translated in a simple word..."love". Respecting and preserving the nature or combating differences as racism, sexuality or culture and accepting any kind of love, no discriminating anyone in anywhere for anything. I believe it be possible...because love, respect and freedom are all of good.
