Hi hueyii,

The right link is this:

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/am...ces/index.html

There are also some other points that the report doesn't mention, of course it wouldn't as it is a release from an NGO.

As crime is rife, some of the 'missing' are fugitives from the law, who leave the state of Rio and lie their life anew in anoter state. I know of one who has done that and I'm a foreigner.

Also the pople who are bumped off by hit squads are done so because they owe money from drugs, or fighting for control of drug sales points in Rio de Janeiro capital.

I'm sure the same is true on the Mexico / US border.

People need to understand that the drug world may seem exciting and hip, but behind the scenes a life is not even worth a penny. If you try to become an upstart, you're taken out and only the fittest and most ruthless will survive (not always).

The police officers (who are very badly paid - I certainly wouldn't accept $800 a month to take a bullet) do extra work for some undesirables, but everybody knows what the story is, even the NGO that's complaining about the elevated number of disappearances, and so those that wish to get involved with this sort of activity are not going into it blindly.

Another question that should be asked is how many law abiding citizens disappear for no reason?

Best regards,

Steve

You may want to take a look at the movie TOURISTS. It may answer some of your questions. Brazil is huge, as it relates to human organ trafficking, thus some of the disappearances.

During the last year, there was a documentary aired in Australia regarding the millions of people who go missing each year, and are never located.
Some data that was also relevant in comparisons to official 'other' mortality figures is shown as an indication for the USA.

In January 2006, an Author and researcher in another forum (which i will not post here), published the following information...........

"In 2001, over 840,000 Americans were reported missing to the FBI. That's almost one out of every 300 people! In other nations the ratio is even higher; in Australia it is one out of every 100! Where are all these people? Why aren't we hearing more about this from the press?

These people just disappear from existence, never to be seen again. If they'd left a body behind, we'd classify all these cases as deaths, but with no body, they are just classified as "missing persons".

But if they were classified as deaths, they would be the single largest cause of death in the world, and over 25% of the total deaths per year.

Missing per year : 840,279
Official deaths per year (NOT including missing people) :2,443,387
Deaths per year INCLUDING missing people : 3,283,663
Heart disease deaths : 696,947
Cancer deaths: 557,271
Stroke deaths : 162,672
Respiratory disease deaths: 124,816
Accident deaths: 106,742
Diabetes deaths: 73,249
Influenza/Pneumonia deaths: 65,681
Alzheimer's disease deaths: 58,866
Nephritis etc deaths: 40,974
Septicemia deaths: 33,865

There are about as many people that just up and go missing each year as there are who die from heart disease and strokes combined, and yet our society acts as if it is not happening at all, and no danger exists. In fact it is the single biggest danger members of our society face during peacetime."


I hnow that here in Australia, the annual figure is around 30,000 people go missing each year, according to a recent documentary shown here, and are never located.............


I had heard also, that the figure is approximately 1 million each year in USA, and the UK has an extremely high missing persons rate as well, the figures worldwide are incredible.
The vast majority of those numbers are for juveniles.

Tez-

A quibble with the numbers. If there are 20,000,000 people in Australia, and 30,000 go missing, the number is more like 1 in 660, not one in 100.
