    Bolsonaro woos Brazil voters with simple recipe for ending violence


    For many, Bolsonaro has the answer to the question that has preoccupied them for years -- how to lower the crime rate in a country with more than seven murders an hour?

    "Give guns to good people," the former paratrooper insisted during campaign meetings.

    "If one of us, a civilian or a soldier, is attacked... and if he fires 20 times at the assailant, he should be decorated and not have to go to court," the far-right candidate told a campaign meeting in the northern Rio neighborhood of Madureira in August.

    Good luck. Demographics about 50% black and running about 60,000 murders a year in a population of about 200 million. Situation hopeless.
