Explaining Brazil #44 The rise of urban militias in Rio de Janeiro

OUÇA O PODCAST

On February 4, Justice Minister Sergio Moro presented his first bill after taking office. His anticrime plan, as the set of proposals was called, includes several measures against organized crime. And, for the first time, it singles out urban militias as one of the targets of the state.

It may seem ludicrous, but urban armed militias were once well-regarded in Rio de Janeiro.

Many politicians defended these militias. And yes, including President Jair Bolsonaro.
