The Reality of 2016 Olympic City Rio de Janeiro (12 pics + 1 video)

Posted by sym in Pictures 1 Mar 2010   / 15545 views

This is the reality of suburbs and slums of the city which will host Olympics in 2016.
As you can see from these pictures, the dark side of this beautiful city is shown. The police have long ago lost any control in these areas. Now it is drug dealers and criminal groups who are reigning there. Apart from adult drug addicts, you can also see children wandering the streets looking for crack or other drugs.
Very sad reality…
