A total of 973 homicides committed by off-duty military police in legitimate self-defense were  concealed for nearly a decade by the state government of São Paulo.

These cases, occurring between 2006 and March 2015, involved off-duty PMs who killed someone in response to a crime.

The absence of these fatalities from the official records, which as a matter of law are to be made public, was confirmed to the Folha de S. Paulo this week by the Alckmin government.

The PSDB government explained in a note that 973 deaths at the hands of PMs were not accounted for in monthly homicide reports going back to 1995.

They also fail to appear in summaries of police lethality released by the state Secretariat of Public Safety.

On Friday (November 13), the SSP published a note saying that the Folha had retracted a previous chapter in this story. The most recent version is datelined 14 November. On which more soon.

Homicides of this type include cases in which a policeman kills someone for illegitimate reasons, as in the recent «massacre» in Osasco and Barueri. This type of crime is included in the statistics used to determine the homicide rate for the entire state.

Deadly police violence, however, is a parallel statistic only available from the agency’s Web site and reflects both police killed in confrontations and killings attributed to police in such actions.

Robbers killed by PMs during exchanges of gunfire, for example, are  registered in this category of police lethality but are not used in calculating the homicide rate.

These 973 deaths, however, are only published in the state’s Official Diary in extracts from PM internal affairs.

The DO is a usability nightmare … queries return nearly illegible and unsearchable PDF files, derived from some PostScript publishing system, probably, for example.

Adding these to the official records, the official number of lethal incidents involving off-duty police is up 155%, rising to 1,600 since 2001 rather than the 627 officially released.

These data are used to plan “police actions” and “investment in public security,” including payments of bonuses to police personnel.

Rejoinder by the SSP:

A Folha de S.Paulo reconhece que errou em reportagem que apontou manobra para reduzir número de homicídios.

Na última segunda (9), o jornal afirmou que o governo paulista, em abril deste ano, havia retirado da contabilidade oficial de homicídios dolosos as mortes legítimas praticadas por PMs em folga, sem indício de ilicitude. Essas mortes nunca foram consideradas homicídios em virtude de critério internacional da ONU, e são classificadas como letalidade policial.

Hoje, em uma nova reportagem, o jornal assume o erro: “A Folha errou ao afirmar que a gestão Alckmin (PSDB) manobrou dados para reduzir o número de homicídios”.

A Secretaria da Segurança Pública ressalta que São Paulo é pioneiro na divulgação das estatísticas criminais e preza pela transparência na divulgação dos dados.

No mês passado, o Estado atingiu o recorde no índice de homicídios, com taxa de 9.12 por 100 mil habitantes, única do Brasil no limite considerado aceitável pela ONU.

The Folha de S.Paulo acknowledges that it was mistaken in a report on alleged manoeuvring to reduce the homicide rate.

Last Monday (9 November) the newspaper stated that the state government of São Paulo  had held back cases of manslaughter involving legitimate use of deadly force by off-duty military police and failed to account separately for illicit violence. These deaths were not considered homicides based on an international standard set by the UN, but were classified as police use of deadly forces.

Today, in a new article, the São Paulo daily admits its error: «the Folha was incorrect in stating that the Alckmin (PSDB) government manipulated data in order to reduce the number of homicides. mil habitantes,»

The SSP would emphasize that São Paulo is a pioneer in the transparency of crime statistics.

Last month, the state recorded record results with a homicide rate of 9.12 per 100,000 residents. the only state in Brazil with a murder acceptable by UN standards.
