## Brazil's Murder Rate

Brazil, where I live, has a shockingly high murder rate. I mean, it’s freaking astounding. A recent blog I read (see it here) caused a bit of discussion among some friends of mine on facebook. Is Brazil a failed state? The obvious answer seems ‘no’, but then again, isn’t security one of the basic functions of the state? Just how bad is it with regard to murders in Brazil? (Pretty nuts is the answer.) We can visualize this is in R to get some idea of how nuts it is.
