On January 23, 2013 residents from the Geraldo Melo area of Mossoró, a town in the state of Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil reported to the authorities that they’d heard gunfire. Police searched the area but found nothing. The following day, on January 24, 2013 someone found a bullet riddled cadaver of a man with 4 unfired bullets in his hand. What’s a proper name for an unfired bullet?
This was the 12th homicide victim of the year in the town of Mossoró. Given that we’re only 24 days into the year, there is on average one person murdered every other day in this town alone. Go Brazil!
