74 YEARS IN PRISION

Against common sense
1991. The City is Fortaleza, State of Ceará, during this period, began its work in the Command Headquarters of the 6th Military Police Battalion, unit subordinated to the CPC (Police Policing Command) located in the western area of the city, in the Conjunto Esperança-Aracapé-Neighborhood.
In this place, on several occasions, as a policing officer, he watched several scenes of urban violence and took no action.
There was a social and moral decline in the young officer's life. There were constant changes in his moral and professional conduct, and such modifications would be compared, as “A rock when thrown into water causes concentric circles to grow larger and larger; in the face of such comparison, it is clear that while in the water one sees the point of departure and the ripples which bind to each other.”
Thus, in delinquency, the response to the criminal tendency is not always found if in the minds by deviations of personality; the members seek to prove greater superiority or whether through the senses by directional inheritance, when aborted or nauseated by society itself, being isolated and practically, without any opportunity. This gave rise to the beginning of an illustrative and alternative system of its own personality that had long been controversial.
In October of the same year, he received an invitation to sponsor private security of private facilities in the following dance clubs in the capital metropolitan area; the first in Aquiraz (CE) and the second in Caucaia (CE).
In this endeavor he himself was the principal agent of the gate and the main access entrances in both precincts. Through this episode, he felt it was time to close that kind of business that paralleled his public function. Although he was not caught in that kind of activity yet he was transferred to 1st Company / 5th BPM.
Year 1992: In that subunit the officer arrived there as the oldest subaltern by hierarchy. At the time the Company was located in the eastern area of the City of Fortaleza-CE, in the neighborhood of Aldeota; sector known as prime area of policing, both on foot, on horseback, and motorized.
Certain that upon arriving at that company as sub commandant his voice would be heard and began to raise all the problems there, among which were seen as lack of effective, inoperable armament and ammunition, operating and administrative vehicles in total state of scrapping; so the withdrawals were made known to the Company Commander who, after reading the report, replied “Actually, we do what we have!” He used only a verbal duplicity as his answer, but he did not offer any objective solutions.
So all his effort in the work until then had not been recognized however when in the first Supervisor service of “Area 01” he was directing in the area by drivers and patrolmen of the vehicles where nonetheless and insistently he heard police repeat: “Lieutenant leaves this come on! Let's get on well with what we have in the area, because the area is very rich!”
So, Lieutenant Geovaldo replied: “Negative! Stop talking, move on, driver!” The officer sometimes did not shut up, however, and later in the face of a large plot armed by several corrupt police officers and addicted to the camouflaged delinquency not punished by the corporation and who, at the present time, operated under his command, did not have enough authority to curb such actions by what indirectly he also became part of all that dirt.
Lieutenant Geovaldo entered into a world that did not belong to him “the dictatorial world of rebellion and lack of governability”, because the corporation's disciplinary regulation no longer had an effect on his life and finally, the subjection to crime began to shout more high.
“Ho! Uncontrolled children, says the Lord, who give effect to a purpose which is not mine, and who make an agreement, but not by my spirit, increasing their sin.” (Isaiah 30:1)
Some Saturday morning, he was invited to pass a fuel station located on Santos Dumont Avenue. There was the following dialogue: “This is the Lieutenant of whom I had spoken to you. He's the one in charge of this whole area, stay put, because he's our comrade, you know!”
In the face of this whole episode, the officer was totally astonished. To his surprise, the manager of the fuel station returned with a box containing cans of lubricating oil, tow, polishing wax, and a voucher to fill thirty (30) liters of fuel.
Subsequently the lieutenant learned that the manager of that gas station was addicted to narcotics.
That theater was like a stupid entrance toward the wide door of the lieutenant's moral and professional decline. Believing he sought to please or let himself be led by false accolades “boss, you're the guy and everyone says that you are cool head.”
Between his partners, he lost the practice and prohibitive success of such a criminal practice before him, when he became the chief corrupt and corrupt agent so he was tested and succumbed to the temptation of the tip of the fuel station manager.
“If anyone thinks that he is anything, he is nothing, he deceives himself.” (Galatians 6:3)
Likewise, he was similar to them in (greed, arrogance, prostitution, alcoholism, orgy, etc.) and in all things similar to these, which bring no benefit to men of good, but he became a man of tormented and perverted nature open to evil.
In principle, this was the starting point for his irresponsible delinquency, starting from the execution of the work, he became an authentic chameleon who wore a gun and a car, and the uniform of the corporation, everything seemed to him very easy; but all these facilities only drew him into a great tight tie.
“There is a way that seems right to man, but his end leads to death.” (Proverbs 16:25)
But it was from 05/12/1992 that the beginning of a series of small crimes to later turn into assaults, homicide, extortion by means of kidnapping, and car theft, corporal injury and accusation of rape.
The reader may ask: Why the seafront? Because it’s a tourist area frequented by public gathering and diversification of the night orgies.
In that working environment along with other “military police officers” there was no distinction between policemen and bandits; but the duplicity of disguises where several flagrant ones were effected; sometimes they were slyly executed, and the officer induced them to yield to the most various types of blackmail in order not to become public figures in the face of their enslavement, such as important persons who promoted bacchanalia with transvestites within their own vehicles not indifferent to others who during the day are male, but at night they lie down as if they were females and from the seduction to the corruption of minors, and so on.
Therefore, as an agent of the law, Lieutenant Geovaldo was there precisely failing ahead of the weaknesses of others by which he became corrupt and potential corrupter also conniving with the criminal system.
The chameleon phase
Mask – Crime does not pay!
In May 1992, when he was in command of RP 502, a former patrolman said: “Lieutenant, I know a guy who can prepare a few heavy challenges!” Again, a new test with the officer happened to fail, so that he was totally mute and static of understanding, if not outside the common sense of reality, but before the soldier's question the following question arose: Where is the (QTH) of the very heavy guy? (Lieutenant Geovaldo). When everything was settled, as if in a typical criminal action, Lieutenant Geovaldo did not even suspect, but he was already supporting a first crime in his own policing area: That same night there was what might be called a criminal action, where, even before it happened, there was already in his mind an accusation of error for his criminal connivance.
The next day a man came to deal with the officer in the GPM (Military Police Branch) of Praia do Futuro. In fact, when the assailant told him what had happened, he almost drew his gun and gave him an arrest warrant, but the “almost” of the officer was only in his thoughts. From then on Lieutenant Geovaldo was so much worse than the man who had committed those criminal acts.
After a few months he also began to practice those nocturnal works, where everything was made happen; therefore, in the theater and stage of criminal operations the officer acted as the principal agent of the criminal assaults as announced by the various mass media of that time.
Committed crimes (May 1992)
First Lieutenant PM Geovaldo had almost become an unscrupulous man. As commander of RP 502, he “policed” policing since 8:10 p.m., so by 11:00 p.m., all locations were wild and dark.
So there were no occurrences of interest on the seafront, for nothing mattered to him but to look for unenlightened and unsuspecting victims lost in night-time prostitution in their rare moments of pleasure.
Faced with this situation on several occasions they were at some distance from any and every occurrence located in the area in question. They were quick to approach, and they did not care what the typing was.
1st Assault - Crime does not pay!
On 05/17/1992 the group spotted a vehicle with a couple inside; it was a quick action to immediately announce the assault and determined that the victims put their belongings on the hood of the car.
Thus couple and vehicle were then driven to a wilderness and removed then the vehicle was plucked and the victims locked in the trunk of the vehicle.
In that interval the vehicle RP 502 in which the policing of the Area 01 by the official was hidden.
The driver who was in superior order waited passively in a pre-established place.
So the group acted and left the place as if nothing had happened; where the rest of the work would normally take place until the dawn of the day for surrender of the next shift.
After all this criminal work the life of the PM Officer would never be the same became a constant questioning in the form of psychological torture without any apparent response.
That same morning of 05/18/1992 when he arrived at his residence he was asked by his mother:
– My son it is all things all right with you? (Mom)
– Mother is all wonderful! (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
That lady leaned close where he sat and gave her a look of concern.
This was a gesture of questioning from her mother, but it was useless. Because he did not have the courage to tell her what was happening.
Lieutenant Geovaldo had become a thoughtful and cunning bitter man knew that he was living in a dilemma as if he were traveling along the common-sense counterpart of a path parallel to his own contradictory life.
So he had no strength left to stop since he even thought of himself as perhaps a typical reaction of warning against the common sense of morals already corrupted or else he will never again practice such things!
2nd Assault - Crime does not pay!
On June 12, 1992, a vehicle was still visible in front of a luxurious block of apartments at dawn. The RP 502 patrol noted that there was a couple inside the vehicle.
Sometime later the occupants of the vehicle for lack of prudence thought to be safe in the place relaxed and by the negligence they became easy prey for the assault.
Around 2:00 a.m. Lieutenant PM and his cronies, after having placed the VTR 502 in a safe and concealed place away from suspicions, changed their robes, that is to say, they removed the military uniforms and set out for another approach to crime; and the operational theater of crime was already done.
This time the victims as previously mentioned were placed inside the trunk of the vehicle as they were usually taken to a remote and wild place on the hills of the Future’s Beach.
Then comes the ad is a robbery! Nobody move! (Lieutenant Geovaldo). Moments of silence and tension! Please do not do anything with us; you can take anything you want! (Victim)
The next morning, they reached the end of the service scale, so later on, another criminal patrol was preparing for the next action.
3rd Assault - Crime does not pay!
The day is 06/17/1992 once again escalated as Supervision Officer of the Area 01 Lieutenant Geovaldo commanded RP 502 together with the partners in the night scale.
That evening, at around 10:00 p.m. the Officer patrolled the shore of the Future’s Beach, following a COPOM scale.
In fact, the patrol usually ran along the length of the beach and along its stalls and as there was no event everything seemed calm they also received no calls from the Center for Military Police Operations. (COPOM)
In the face of the silence Lieutenant Geovaldo heart is filled itself with malice as if it were necessary to practice any evil act because the “evil in its essence is cunning” this is a kind of silence that no one notices (symptoms) until it is already installed (wrapped) so that it is consumed. (Practiced)
“Not that which goes into the mouth makes a man unclean, but that which comes out of the mouth. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, the taking of life, broken faith between the married, unclean desires of the flesh, taking of property, false witness, and bitter words.” (Matthew 15:11, 19)
In the face of these events around 22:40 p.m. a vehicle was parked in the wilderness. At the opportunity, RP 502 was hidden among the darkness of the beach huts and on foot they followed the sides of the huts.
The gang was positioned for another criminal action audaciously viewed the victims inattentive to the local danger and as usual the assault was announced and the belongings of the victims were stolen.
Around 1:50 a.m. on June 18, 1992, the officer started the vehicle communication radio at RP 502 (...)
HTG, COPOM – Over! (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
COPOM on listening, onwards ... HTG! (Op. COPOM)
There's some S-13 in the area! (Occurrence) (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
Negative. Negative! Area is S-33 (quiet)! (Op. COPOM)
Until that moment of “Transmission – VTR – COPOM” was the Officer of Area 01 RP 502 – by 1st Company of 5th BPM; after closing the broadcast continued as an audacious chameleon until the day to shine by what would dive in the depth of the crime. Through human complexity the meaning of his trespassing actions was not understood, nor would he restrain his impulsiveness to the criminal trajectory that had contaminated his mind and body.
Suddenly as in all actions the gang sees a vehicle almost hidden among the trees; and at some distance they approach to announce another criminal action.
On the other hand, what happened for sure? Nobody knew what was about to happen! But it was an unbearable chemical reaction.
The situation was that the officer was out of the air or that he sought the position of the vehicle as if it were no longer there; then the car was there again! Frightened the officer stirred all the blood boiling through his temporal veins every nerve of his body squirmed out of shape.
But the glare of greed for the vehicle leapt at him more than the sanguine flutter as if everything combined with the repetitive clamor of the previous acts. Then in one last attack the group departed from the victims and announced the assault:
– Attention! Nobody moves. It's an assault! (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
– In an act of desperation, someone says: “Take everything! (Victim) What do you want? And he asked to get out of the car and repeated: Let us go, please!”
It was at that moment that the gun that was in the officer's possession shot accidentally and hit one of the victims at the right thigh level; there the gang lost control of the situation; and so he placed the victims in the backseat of the vehicle and headed for the hill of the Future’s Beach. On the way one of the victims asked the following question: “Lieutenant are you police officer or bandit today?” (Alan)
Suddenly a morbid silence! And the partners exchanged glances between themselves with facial expressions of utter astonishment at what became clear and evident the group had been recognized.
For the loss of control of the situation and even if concealed by the shadows elevations of the (Future’s Beach) they looked for opportunity not from any place but to identify the appropriate place!
“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22)
Because the essence of evil (appearance) was in the officer's mind until then he became a homicide that night. But before entering into the merits of the events of that night, follow the example of an apparent and profound contradiction and search that made the difference: “A certain seventeen-year-old went to a service some day on the advice of a shoe seller who had brought him to Christ and had told him of the need to know better the Savior whom he had just accepted. After the period of praise, the preacher said: Let us now open the Bible in, "Meditate these things; take care of them so that its use may be manifest to all." (1 Timothy 4:15); the young converted opened the first page of the Bible that his friend had given him and began to leaf through it for Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy and Joshua and several other books without finding the Book advertised. He went back to the index and saw that (1 Timothy's) book was on page 325. When he opened that number he found the book of Joshua. He looked again at the index and realized that the Bible had two great divisions and that (1 Timothy) was in the second part. When he finally found the text the pastor had finished his sermon. Needless to say, he was embarrassed and somewhat confused.”
Has the reader ever felt this way? Do not be discouraged most new believers begin this way. Although that beginning was somewhat disheartening, the young man felt a great desire to know the Bible better.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)
Years later he became a famous preacher who brought to Christ one million people. At the end of his life he founded a Bible institute that still today prepares about 1200 young people every year in the Word of God.
The name of that young man at the time was Dwight L. Moody. Few men equaled Moody's contribution to Christianity. But he himself would never have done his deeds if he had not been willing to study the Word of God.
Although we do not know what method he used to study the Bible, we know he was not trained in Bible school; most of his knowledge he acquired by himself.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Our success or failure in the Christian life depends on the amount of biblical knowledge we store in our minds regularly and our obedience to their truths. It is certain that a person can go to heaven knowing little more than a biblical verse.
“If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
For the wonderful gift of God which is salvation is so gratuitous where all we have to do is receive it in our hearts by faith.
“But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become children of God, to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12)
But if we wish to be happy and victorious believers we will have to feed ourselves regularly of the Word of God and this requires application on our part.
The more we devote ourselves to this, the faster will be growth in the spiritual life; then we will find that the price of obedience to pay is worth more than the price of disobedience. Jesus enunciated the formula of personal success when he said it.
“If these things are clear to you, happy are you if you do them.” (John 13:17)
Therefore, happiness results in knowing, which is the good and perfect will of God which is revealed through His Word the (Bible) as well as obeying it. The problem with many Christians is that they do not apply to the study of biblical principles and yet do not know what God expects of them. No wonder they do not receive the God's blessings in the Christian life.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 1:3)
Sure what the officer was supposed to do, he called his police cop and told him, “Let's get away with them!” (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
On the other hand, while they exchanged ideas about the young people, the comrade still argued, “Boss, let these guys go and let us leave here as soon as possible.” (Soldier)
At that moment he heard nothing more of what was spoken then he advanced towards one of the boys who was at the edge of the road near the margin and there he asked him, what was his name? (Lieutenant Geovaldo); “He therefore, in a trembling voice, said to call himself Gonzaga.” (Victim)
When that last dialogue ended, the officer turned and pointed the gun at him in a somber way and in the face of the desperate action the boy still tried to run being stopped by a deadly shot.
After the final trajectory of that criminal path was resolved, a gunshot echo was heard in the night.
The other boy who was within a distance of ten steps questioned Lieutenant Geovaldo action!
– What happened? (Alan)
– Nothing you can solve! (Lieutenant Geovaldo)
So when the boy understood that his friend was dead and fallen to the ground went into complete despair because he knew that from that nightmare maybe he would not wake up. No one knows why, but that boy did not lose his life that dark night either.
Anyway, he practically did not understand what was happening but still fell on that cold sand and the cowardly form as the officer fired the trigger of the weapon in an attempt to take the life of another innocent; but only the hand of God who had deflected that projectile from not reaching that young man's heart.
Consequently, without being conformed happened to confront the soldier to move until the body of the second boy already fallen to the ground (Alan) but in that occasion would be the shot of mercy!
Certainly there would be one more shot that night. But only to fulfill the superior order the accomplice returned and after the soldier discharged his gun he nodded that order was executed.
And from that place they fled as if they had left a graveyard where they used the victims' own car to escape for what was then abandoned nearby to the Military Police Officers Club (COPM).
There is no perfect crime
Even at the same dawn of 06/18/1992 for the officer would not be the same as the other assaults because as an agent of the law lived in duplicity of life.
What would be the explanation for so many criminal actions and finally what was wrong? What would be the end for the official?
Following the facts
Still on the last victim that was shot to the bullet by the officer whose perversity did not reach him in its totality, but in his criminal enterprise it was thought that he was dead and that the criminal life of Lieutenant Geovaldo and his gang could completely have covered by their deaths.
On the other hand, the young man who pretended to be a dead man was able to fool the murderers. He succeeded in gathering all possible forces left to fight against death when he dragged himself to the banks of Santos Dumont Avenue; so he was rescued by a passerby who drove him to the nearest hospital where it was found that the victim was shot by a firearm being shot in the left arm at the level of the chest.
While he was still in hospital for being of noble and influential family quickly began to notify the family members.
Also present was all the police (Military, Civil, Fire Department, Forensic and Civil Defense), as well as a battalion of press reporters (spoken, written and televised), where the victim, with much effort came to clarify the facts of the lesion suffered.
That night, a miracle happened in that boy's life! How then did he escape death? Humanly it would be impossible because his death had been designed by a Military Police Officer “Lieutenant Geovaldo”.
Undoubtedly, that entire irresponsible trajectory was marked in his memory as a sign that God still has a plan for his life.
From the searches
The day was already approaching and the searches did not stop. And at about 4:25 a.m. the place was already completely filled with onlookers in the morning of the day, 06/18/1992. The alleged crime scene according to the entire account provided by the “survivor” victim himself, who was still much shaken due to the imminent danger he faced, but still told the police: “The whole place was very dark. I do not remember for sure! And lighting was very difficult”. (Alan)
On the other hand, Civil and Military Police and Fire Brigade and Expertise of the Institute of Legal Medicine, all of them committed themselves for the accomplishment of duty and entered the bush in the sense of locating and preceding with the necropsy examination the boy's body in order to be attested preliminary to the cause mortis.
When it comes to the hills that surround the Future’s Beach, it really becomes very difficult to access any place that is suspected; therefore, it was understood that there was an area surrounded by geographical accidents and devoid of public lighting, which made it widely isolated and unguarded for safety. It has also proved to be a very dangerous and propitious area for spawning and hiding of corpses. The Military Police are aware of the complexity of the facts among themselves and other mysterious assaults occurred in the same circumscription and in view of such characteristics began the police hunt: “The identical operating mode then pointed to the beginning of the police proceedings. The facts were confusing and always led to nothing. More formed a labyrinth as in a game without exit; in this case the author of the crimes that until now was unknown reason why he deceived the police. However, in the face of the constant denunciations in several police stations on the streets of the city, besides the denunciation of the surviving victim who identified and appointed a Lieutenant PM as the material and intellectual author of the crimes that occurred in that area as well as the victim of his young friend. In the face of all these facts, both the Military Police and the Civil Police had reached the following conclusion: Our man is this Lieutenant, we hold him and the whole scheme will be overthrown.”
According to this statement a monitoring scheme was created and around 10:00 a.m. on Friday in the Edson Queiroz neighborhood more precisely in the neighborhood that morning; when a telephone contact for the Military Operations Center (COPOM) was the suspected officer searching for information about the health condition of the young man who had survived a robbery on the Future’s Beach, it was then that the police had no more doubts and went to do the arrest of the corrupt agent of the police force.
