    Now that Rio has it ... Olympics

    See this report

    https://www.osac.gov/Reports/report....ntentID=106705

    The criminal threat for Rio de Janeiro is rated by the U.S. Department of State as critical. The Brazilian police and the Brazilian press report that crime continues to increase. Violent crimes such as murder, rape, kidnapping, carjacking, armed assault, and burglary are a normal part of everyday life. The U.S. Consulate in Rio de Janeiro has received a number of reports of Americans being drugged in bars and nightclubs by criminals with a substance commonly referred as "goodnight Cinderella" drugs, and subsequently being robbed.

    Re: Now that Rio has it ... Olympics

    If the IOC was truly worried about crime it would have selected Tokyo. Chicago and Madrid have their own crime problems. In fact, wasn't a teenager beaten to death while a bunch of classmates just stood there and watched without intervening either this last week or the week previous? Like I said, Chicago's got its own crime problems.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Yup, the video is on many news sites. Basically the kid just gets pounded on by a 2x4 and kicked when he was down, pretty graphic. Man kids in Chicago are so lost, its sad. But i think that Chicago crime itself wouldnt be different from major cities like Rio or Madrid. It doesnt matter, im kinda glad it isnt coming to Chicago, at least we go some aesthetic changes downtown, like LCD screens on buses
