Brazil: Counting the victims of murder

PE Body Count [pt] welcomes the news that another news website is also implementing a murder counter in the neighbor state of Alagoas. “To combat the problem [crime], it is necessary to admit that it exists. We do this by counting homicides and giving faces to the numbers. Both we and the Alagoas 24 horas” [pt]. PE Body County has already registered 279 murders in Pernambuco since the beginning of 2008.
