Massacre in Rio
Kid Crying Over the Coffin of his Dead Friend in Rio de Janeiro

After two decades of life of the Statute of Children and Adolescents
Nearly five out of every thousand teenagers who completed 12 years in 2006, in Rio de Janeiro, can become homicide victims before they turn 19. The estimate is part of a report released by the Center for Security Studies and Citizenship - Candido Mendes University, Rio.
In the case
of Rio de Janeiro, and the adoption of policies to protect the young, a challenge is the improvement of conditions for the work of 647 of the state council members, who still work without cars and telephones, for example, and with teams lagged.
