I'm brazilian and have to tell you that you're very misinformed. Actually, I'm done with this dystopic view of Brazil or any other country by the americans. Stop with your alienation and self assurance of higher ground. We're the 8th world's economy. Our violence aren't much different from yours if we both have suburbs. We don't have mafia at all and we aren't afraid to speak up about any crime we see. Just inform yourself outside of your utopic american world of "freedom".

Phew, good thing I'm not (any) American.

We're the 8th world's economy.

And China's (or US, depending on either prices, or PPP valuation) 1st. Would you say that an average Chinese has better living standards than average Brazilian?

Our violence aren't much different from yours if we both have suburbs.

But of course. I mean, assassinations live on vision are commonplace in many countries.

We don't have mafia

So, those machete assaults (http://www.thebraziltimes.com/video/national/26701645-994-2 one example) by groups of thugs are completely spontaneous?

Don't confuse us with the circus that happens every week in your media about some stupid crap instead of giving actual news.

See, you incorrectly assumed I'm from US (I'm from Poland - we have our fair share of shit, but it's nowhere near being as bad as in Brazil). That was your first mistake. Your other mistake was classic "NO U" argument. Lastly, nobody said Brazil is a dystopia. It's just way worse than "the 8th world's economy" should be. I guess it hit the sore spot.

Snorted my water because of this, even fucking Ireland has a Mafia, do they seriously expect people to believe that Brazil doesn't have at least one organized crime syndicate? Wat.

And yet, friend, you have done exactly the same thing when you assumed they were American (without evidence). I suggest you take your own words to heart and realize that you too have alienated a country.

Edit: And no, I'm not sticking up for the other individual, just pointing out the hypocrisy.

'MURKA FREE!

Ugg tired sleep now.

Honestly, one can't deny that such an event reflects the image of Brazil being a lawless hellhole of poverty and corruption.
