    The problem Brazil has is the history of the President and others who were Marxist terrorists and so cannot point the finger at these thugs.

    Only a determined effort in eliminating these thugs from the face of the earth is likely to stop the problem. But heh, isn’t that what Brazil are good at?

    Huggin' these 'hoodies' doesn't get them off the streets or find out who is the agency behind the street-anarchy.

    They might be:
    i. a self-generating, ad hoc, opportunistic non-organisation - like in the 'Tottenham riots', or
    ii. a covertly organised, politically-motivated organisation - like in Argentina, or
    iii. a mixture of the two.

    Dialogue is probably not the answer. But an 'innocent' has been killed by the ubiquitous lost bullet, so the stakes are raised and both the police and the politicians are on the line.

    Tough times ahead.
