And sure Brazil criminality, violence and corruption is over the top. My point is that the numbers are a lot inflated by internal killing between drug gangs. Sure USA numbers can also be inflated. But only looking at numbers can be deceiving.

 

I don´t think so. In fact, Brazil number of murders could potentially be higher than what we´ve seen. Many crimes happen in isolated regions in this country (like mainland North, North-East, Central-West regions), in farms, mines and smaller cities, that sometimes are not even reported to the police. 

It´s just like modern slavery numbers. Reports counts about 1000 people freed from slavery in the country last year, but estimates vary between 25 - 40 thousand people still living in those conditions in the country. It´s not hard to imagine that, considering that cases were found even in our biggest cities.

A lot of numbers about our social conditions are dubious...unfortunately

And a lot of those estimatives are asspull unfortunately as well, just like the paygap and other "correlationary studies".

And considering that 90% of brazil population lives in the big centers, the numbers on small cities wouldn't impact the numbers that much for homicide.

As a millenial, wanderlust who loves travelling and going all around the world... I'm loving it!

Everything is looking great so far and Rio is a magical city, watching this Olympics really make me go back there now! And I've been there this year -and I didn't get Zika, Yay to the repels.

For real, there are so many people saying shit right here, I don't know what's worse, people who has never been there and keep saying they read reports that the city/country is a crap and all that stuff...

Or the people who lives in the country and have no sense of nationalism -for god sake they should start deporting you guys, you hate your country anyway.


Come on guys there's no perfect place in the world! I've studied in NJ area, and many high school kids there were using heavy drugs, I've been to NYC / Chicago subways and saw many homeless people, they were even peeing at the walls!!! I've been stolen in Memphis, Tennessee, I have friends who parked with a rented car at a fast food in Florida when they just arrived there and when they finished eating their car was with the doors opened and almost all their luggage was gone! I've been to Detroit and the number of abandoned houses was scaaaary. In Europe we can't say a shit about security, Hudson Soft Company seems to be playin a real VG here, there's bombermen are everywhere.

So let's focus on the good things and enjoy this party and conquest for this great and beautiful South American country, Brazil! Mainly you guys who live there, why don't you make something to change all the bad things? You're the ones who must face your bad government, corruption and stuff, stop trying to put your problems on other's hands! You're the only ones who can do it! *Geraldine Doyle is watching you and CRYING!* and PLEASE, stop complaining and saying shit about it in International forums, it won't help you on anything! As of now South America and Africa are by far the most isolated places on Earth! Look at how China made good use of their 2008 Olympics! They are even planning to build a Bullet Train from Shanghai to LA! -Not sure if it's real but whatever http://urban-obs.com/news/high-speed-trains-between-china-and-the-usa/

This is your chance brazilians! Show the world you're worthy it!

The Bitch is back! And better then ever! #BritneyReturns

SONY Bring them BACK for PS4 and VITA!

Not that much..... about 35 % live in state capital and 50% in the big centers / metro areas (around 100 million people). The rest lives in cities under 350.000 people. I don´t think they represent a  fraction that shouldn´t impact. Some of those cities, like Campina Grande, Vitória da Conquista, are even among the 50 most dangerous cities in the world !

Oh well, I don´t want to get into arguments here, but there´s no way to deny that street crime is Brazil is a huge problem and that our average rate of murders (or thefts, or whatever) don´t compare to most developed countries, even if there are a few spots of crime here and there in some of them.

Yeah, no one is denying that they are a big problem, but not even near what some are trying to make it out to be. And yes both cities are very dangerous (statistically, not necessarily by gross numbers). São Paulo metropolitan area alone hold 10% of the whole country population.

Even the "near what some are trying to make it out to be" regarding our security is still too high by international standards....

....unfortunately

no doubt about it... hardly anybody is happy with the poor safety we have (besides the criminals that gain with it).
