    Michel Temer’s government believed murder could be an effective form of population control for the country’s overcrowded prisons.

    Brazil’s government faces one of its most difficult political moments of its short time in office following the death of close to 100 prisoners in a week and after one of its ministers welcomed the deaths, saying the country needed more deadly riots to control the country’s prison overpopulation.

    “More people should have died. There should be one riot each week,” said Minister of Youth Affairs Bruno Julio on Saturday, which led him to resign just hours after his statement.
