Former commander of the Metropolitan Police Ubiritan Guimaraes was charged with principal responsibility in the massacre; he could receive up to 30 years in prison if found guilty. Among those charged are 87 high ranking officers. [Editors Note: Compare this to Attica where no government officials were ever charged or convicted of their crimes that left 42 dead and hundreds of prisoners beaten, tortured and mistreated afterwards.]
