    Aug. 9 (UPI) -- The number of murders in Brazil increased by by 3 percent to a record high of 63,880 in 2017, according to data released by the Brazilian Public Security Forum Thursday.

    The data showed that 175 people were murdered each day and an overall murder rate of 30.8 per 100,000 people, up from 29.9 in 2016.

    An average of 14 people were killed in interactions with police, up 20 percent from 2016.

    Rapes also increased by 8 percent to to 60,018 and murders of women rose 6.1 percent to 4,539.


    "It is a devastating scenario," director of the Brazilian Public Security Forum Renato Sérgio de Lima told The Guardian. "The numbers show we have a serious problem with lethal violence."

    Lima added most of the victims were young, black men and outdated laws and police procedures along with the rise of organized crime contributed to the increased murder rate.

    In an attempt to combat the murders Brazil seized 119,484 firearms, 94.9 percent of which weren't registered in the federal police system.


    Santa Catarina state police sergeant Elisandro Lotin said not enough murderers are imprisoned and police focus on repressing criminals rather than preventing violent crimes.

    "There is an impunity about homicide crimes in Brazil," Lotin told The Guardian.

    The forum's data showed there were 689,947 people in Brazil's penitentiary system and 39,516 in police custody.

    Actually the real number is way higher than 63k because in Brazil a lot of murders are not registered. And many times they do not include the police homicides in the official numbers.

    Brazil is a society in chaos. Police are violent/corrupt and high levels of inequality continued to persist even after surging commodities prices helped boost its economy up almost 10 years ago. Now they're in a recession, so all of the social issues have been exacerbated.

    The bulk of those murders are taking place in the North/Northeast.

    As fukked up as things are here in the U.S., at least we have a somewhat politicized population that engages and holds institutions accountable every now and then. In Brazil people basically just accept the status quo, robberies, shootings, rape, anarchy and justify with a fatalistic "somos um pais do terceiro mundo, entao nao se pode esperar mais"-- "we're a third world country, what do you expect"

    That's actually terrifying. For one year alone? :merchant:

    That's more casualties than full blown wars that lasted years

    That's a 175 murders per day!! :picard:

    We don't even get 100 murders a year in Toronto and we got to 5 million people here (in the GTA)

    If those are the numbers they came up, I'm willing to guess there's at least another 10K-20K more murders that have been unreported or no access to that data and that number could be higher :mjcry:

    What's fukked up is that those infamous shootouts between gangs with military-grade assault rifles and the police/army aren't even happening in Brazil's most violent region.

    Cities like Salvador and Fortaleza in the Northeast have a population of 2-3 million and 1,500-2000 murders a year. Take Chicago in its most bloody year on the books (early 90s, not 21st century), multiple it by 2 and you get an average year in those Brazilian cities
