Surviving São Paulo

(p.20) Chapter 1 Surviving São Paulo
The Killing Consensus

Graham Denyer Willis

University of California Press

Chapter 1 delves into the empirical world of police and violence in the city, taking the reader on a narrative and descriptive tour of the patterns and forms of violence in recent times. I lay out some of the challenges that police face, especially as they relate to the emergence of the PCC, assassinations of police officers, and the shifting sensations of relative peace and crisis.
