Rio de Janeiro Gangsters (28 pics)

Many people call Rio de Janeiro one of the world’s most violent cities. Why? You can see everything yourself, because the gangsters’ paradise has been documented by photographer Joao de Carvalho from Portugal. He took many pictures of local drug traffickers and gangs who are often the bosses of communities where Brazilian state does not exist. At the age of 18 these guys provide neighbors with many basic needs, including food and medicines.

    Funny that some immature brazilians just talk shit when someone (outsider) says anything bad about Brazil.

    But the Truth is: Many cities in Brazil are dangerous, having Olympics and shit HERE (i´m brazilian) was the most dumb thing EVER.

    Politicians just want these events here because they will make more money (corruption).

    Mascoty: no, it is NOT the place in the world, you know why? because i DO NOT KNOW any other places. Simple as that, nothing is "the best", when you dont know the others

    Pedro: traficantes e policia no rio da no mesmo, os 2 sao corruptos.

    "Brasil!!! Fuck You american FDP": Vai se ferrar favelado, volta pra tua favelinha ai e xiu.

    i'm brazilian. i really don't thing that the olympics in RIO was a good choice.
    but, be sure: the world cup in brazil will be epic.
    rio have some problems, but as world cup is for the country, there are a lot of good cities in brazil, greats stadiuns and everything for a great cup.
    but the olympics in rio, i really don't know. i think it is too soon. probably if was in sao paulo...
    and for the brazilians: rio sucks! it's is a great place, one of the most beatiful cities in the world, but it is taken (physically and culturally) for the favelas.
