This is a tragically enlightening story. I had a vague idea of what the slums in Rio were like, but I had no idea they had deteriorated to the extent that drug lords and "militias" control everything, even the media and the elections. There are not many English news sources reporting this, which is sad, because these are the kinds of stories the world needs to hear. ~Planoneck~ 03:16, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
