Massacre? Que Massacre?
Massacre? What Massacre?

The Lessa Blog has been following the gang fights in Brazilian prisons from a distance, and has been impressed by the media coverage, as well as the repercussion it has obtained all over the world. 90 criminals dead, killed by other criminals in one prison… 30 criminals killed by other inmates in another… and so on, and so forth. Horrifying, really.
However, the picture above shows a massacre nobody talks about, a massacre that occurs every single day in every single city of Brazil. Thousands — repeat: thousands — of people are killed by the un-government, by un-doctors, by un-mayors, just because they are looking for medical treatment and they have got the other (a very short) end of the stick.
