Inmates Killed In Brazilian Prison Rebellion

Inmates Killed In Brazilian Prison Rebellion

Last week in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil.. another prison riot broke out at the Unidad Prisional do Puraquequara prison. This is the very same prison where several inmates were killed in January of this year during another riot. According to the prison administration, no such riot even took place, just a little “unrest”. Riiight. I think those dead inmates beg to differ. Since the beginning of 2017 there have been over 170 deaths related to prison rebellions in just Amazonas alone. Doesn’t look like the fun is stopping anytime soon either since most of the so-called unrest is due to gang clashes.

  1. Are these even prisons? They don’t look to be run by a warden or any correctional officers.
    It’s like the authorities just drop them off with all their belongings, like knives, machetes, cell phones, beach clothes and flip flops and let them wander around freely.

  2. How the hell does an inmate get a fucking machete in a prison? It just goes to show why things like gun laws will never work. Even in the most regulated places on earth, bad people will find ways to get weapons and hurt other people.
