Travelling through Google Brazil's Street View is an amazing trip of luxury and misery, even while they can't get into the favelas for risk of being killed. There's no need. You can find death elsewhere. Warning: strong images inside.
This is one case: a murder in Belo Horizonte, in the State of Minas. You can see the body covered in a black plastic, surrounded by the military police.
Here is another killed man, found in Praça Noronha Santos, Rio de Janeiro. Authorities have not released any information yet, but a journalist friend in Brazil tells me he was probably run over by a car.
These images have been removed already, but not before they were captured by Brazilian Google Street View users.
Sadly, people are reporting other images like these. Google is taking them down as they learn about them. [EM]
