Political Outsource has obtained an email from a Brazilian student in the city of Espirito Santo that writes school has been cancelled following the chaos ensuing around the nation that many residents are comparing to the "Purge".
The school, called the Federal University of Espirito, sent out an email to students on February 6th, alerting students that all classes have been cancelled until further notice due to the chaotic, dangerous events ensuing in cities across Espirito Santo.
Over 120 people have been reported dead, but Political Outsource estimates that number to be much higher. Additionally, nearly 4,000 people have been injured, and with hospitals and public transportation closed, Espirito Santo is quickly spiraling out of control.
The full (original) email in Portuguese:
military police went on strike due to low wages. Many Brazilians have told Political Outsource directly they are very fearful that the daily work commute may become extremely fatal due to the lack of police response to these dangerous rioters and assailants.

A Brazilian resident tweeted out to Political Outsource, saying that the current chaos in Espirito Santo, Brazil will shut down almost all services Monday.
