Agostinho Miguel Teixeira, a heroin addict, spoke in amazement about what happened when police caught him shooting up with a friend the other night. "They started to help us," the 28-year-old said. "One of them turned on his flashlight and pointed to our arms so we could do it easier, because it was really dark. The other said: 'Don't worry, we're not here to give you trouble. Do your stuff and then give us the syringes and come with us to the police station.'
