We have mentioned this before, but a recent article in Brazzil magazine highlights the effects of Brazil’s Carnaval on humanity. Here is a excerpt from that article:
According to Rio’s Public Security Secretariat, more than 100 people died in the state during the Carnaval celebration, from 6 pm on Friday to 8 am on Wednesday. Public Security chief, Anthony Garotinho, announced that 87 people were murdered and another 30 died in traffic accidents. Tuesday night alone, there were 14 murders and nine wounded people. In the neighborhood of Olaria, in Rio’s North Zone, the death of a 13-year-old boy during a Carnaval parade incited the populace who blamed the police for the crime and burned three buses in protest.
All in the name of a party.
