    Brazil is one of the most dangerous countries in the world, even more so than America. The fact that their rampant, out of control murder rate involving firearms has spilled over into their schools really doesn't come as much of a surprise, to be honest. This isn't helped by the fact that, in general, Brazilian society has grown dangerously blasé about their cities being literally flooded with small arms.

    Oh, and this kind of thing happens every night in Rio's favelas, and often includes higher fatalities.

    Still, it's a sad story, nonetheless.

    Unlike other school shooting this one was a adult shooting children, as the other school shooting were children shooting children.

    I don't understand how this could have happened. Brazil has very strict gun laws.

    Those laws are all on paper, similar to how marijuana is supposedly illegal here in the US but you can get it almost anywhere, and how guns are supposedly illegal in Pakistan but motherfuckers are walking around with RPGS and AK-47's.:eek:

    Brazil has been dangerous for ages.

    I remember being told to walk in groups of at least four when I got off my boat in Recife.

    The cops don't do anything, or patrol the streets.

    At least at Festival they're all a bit drunk or stoned.

    If you got to go: stay in an upmarket (and thereby secure) hotel.
