Since it's a Daily Heil article, I'm going to assume it has something to do with Nazis.

"The threat was issued by the First Capital Command in Sao Paulo, who last year was behind the murder of more than a hundred of the city's police officers."

100 police officers were murdered in Sao Paulo in one year??

You've got to really want to be a police officer when that kind of thing is going on.

I don't care how many people get killed as long as there are no vuvuzelas.

Can you imagine what Chicago or New York would be like if 100 police officers were killed in a single year by a single group?  I'm guessing few prosecutions but the problem would be quickly resolved.

"The gang ordered attacks on police, 106 officers - many off-duty - were killed.

"


To answer my own question... oh yes, they did.

It's the Daily Fail. They have it wrong. Most sources say they are responsible for 100 deaths including police officers not that they killed 100 police officers.

Even in Brasil, 100 police officers is a lot.

Two Disneylands, tops. They're really jacked up the rates over the years.

My doctor is Brazilian and, of course, a huge soccer fan. I asked him if he was attending the World Cup and he started laughing before I could even get the question out.

He said "By the time 2014 rolls around there won't even be a complete list of people to bribe to find out who you REALLY need to bribe to get the stadiums done and the fans relatively un-robbed and un-killed."

That's easy. Nobody that knows about Brazil is going to Brazil. At least not without personnal bodyguards, and even then you are attracting too much attention. Basically, very few people outside of Brazil are going. I may be wrong, but that is my assessment.

The World Cup is a major international event. It's safe to say there will be a lot of foreigners there.

If you plan to go and are worried about the media reports, don't go to Sao Paulo or Rio, go to Fortaleza or Recife. shiat, the beaches are better and the people aren't as crazy.

So the players will NOT be faking their injuries this year?  They will actually be diving for cover from bullets?

The scarier part is if over 100 cops were killed in just one city then how many bad guys were killed there also? usually the ratio of cop/non-cop murders is some ridiculous number. I mean is every able bodied male in Sao Paolo basically a violent gangster?

I don't CARE how many people talk about the economies of BRICKS (help me here, it's Brazil, Russia, India, China and who?).
India is a quagmire of corruption and the worst aspects of a democracy gone wrong.
Brazil on the other hand is weighed down by corruption throughout the police force and crime that has gotten out of hand.
Small crimes will always pave the way for large crimes. Once a society is lenient and turns a blind eye to small crimes, large crimes will follow in a few years.
I actually know a guy who went there for an international conference. Their delegation was informed not to wander off from the hotel because an attendee of the conference had actually been shot to death a few blocks away.
I would actually be surprised if this event goes off without a hitch.
I wouldn't be surprised if gangs and/or the poor actually riot long enough to disrupt the proceedings.
I wouldn't be surprised if teams pull out after a player is killed.
I really think Brazil is due some grassroots movement that will bring stability and prosperity to the country, but with so many people tied up with gangs, illegal activity and weighed down by poverty, I don't see it happening.

It says in the article that 106 cops were killed,and further down it says...

Five days of gang-inspired attacks then left at least 175 dead, including police officers, traffickers and the innocent in between.

So, if all of those police officers were killed in 5 days...(?) then more than half of the people killed were police officers. But it doesn't say what time frame the 106 cops were killed in.

Also, I did a google search, and a NY Times article says that most of the cops killed in 2012 in Sao Paulo were off duty.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a lot of clueless people going to Brazil.

Because let's face it the last 4 World Cup sites have been: South Africa, Brazil, Russia, Qatar.  I can't say that I'm happy about any of those (especially because I know about the bullshiat that goes down in Brazil), but if you asked me to pick which one I wanted to go watch soccer in, I'd say Brazil.

Nope, no joke.

Referee ejects player from the game.
Player attacks referee on the pitch.
Referee fatally stabs player.
Crowd lynch referee.
Players brother beheads referee with a sickle and mounts his head on a spike in the middle of the pitch
The aristocrats!
