    Something we will never see in the USA media and I can't figure out why. All of Brazil is in deep trouble, poverty and unemployment rampant.

    SAO PAULO – Local media in Brazil are reporting more than 30 people have been shot dead in the northern city of Belem since the weekend.

    The G1 news portal says 33 people have been killed since Sunday, when police officer Maria de Fatima dos Santos was gunned down.

    So far, 250 people who'd been living in the building have been registered after the blaze, city security official Jose Roberto said. The fire began overnight and spread rapidly, turning the building into an inferno before it fell down.

    60 Minutes and World News Tonight used to run those stories. Now they are obsessed with other things...

    Did the drought cause the killings and the fire?

    Sao Paulo-Murders increased during the late-2000s. Bucking this trend are the two largest cities. In 2008 Rio de Janeiro registered the lowest murder rate in 18 years, while São Paulo is now approaching the 10 murders per 100,000 mark, down from 35.7 in 1999. A notable example is the municipality of Diadema.
