    These bandits always did it in Europe and the United States.

    When they commit crimes in Brazil, they are reported and investigated.

    EU and US are countries where barbarism prevails. The people have no education.

    Nostril, please take a nice walk through a Rio Favela. Preferably staring at your iPhone with a laptop bag over your shoulder. Then you will experience barbarism. Then, if you survive, come and try the same thing in Peckham.

    Let us know how you get on… .

    Tobi plays stupid so brilliantly, yet effortlessly when he/she where's the brass hole hat.
