    True, Brasil can be a well dodgy place.

    I've been carjacked with a gun in the back of my head, in full view of my kids.

    Not very nice.......

    So where is Brasiliero to claim this is all not so?

    Even the most ardent Brazilian must think this is going a bit too far.

    I wonder how many visitors will be murdered when they come for the soccer and the Olympics, AND by who, the police, the drug gangs or the good old pickpockets?

    A lot of the crime in Brazil is related to drugs. If the government put effort in protecting our borders we could have a better country. Plus, death penalty for murder.
