MENDONCA, Roberto Lopes; SILVA, Mardem Leandro; AMARAL, Ana Lívia  e  TEIXEIRA, Geovane Antônio. An outside view of "carrapateiro": looks on a crackland in Divinópolis, MG. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.2, pp. 249-264. ISSN 0103-5665.

This article is the result of the first stage of a research seeking to know the view of the neighboring population in an area where public use of drugs takes place, known as "Carrapateiro", in Divinópolis, MG. Such research is warranted by the lack of data to back intervention in places called "cracklands". To this purpose, semi-structured interviews were held with 35 residents/shopkeepers from the vicinity of Carrapateiro, aiming to confirm or refute our initial hypotheses of prejudice, conflict and fear. The Bardin view of Content Analysis was employed as the method of analysis. The results have confirmed our hypotheses, revealing an antagonistic relationship between the residents/shopkeepers from around Carrapateiro and the people who lived and/or used drugs there. The fear of crime and the prejudice towards drug users were also substantiated. Additionally, the kind of intervention mostly favored by the neighboring population was shown to revolve around public health and public safety. Finally, we considered the lack of accountability of civil society in this context, and we deem it an instance of xenophobia.
