I saw this from Marginal Revolution (hat tip).
I referenced it in my post on ONESTDV.
It's what I call a temporary solution. I guess in Rio, they want to lock up all the gangsters before the Olympics so they moved into the favellas military style. How long before the gangster that were removed are replaced by younger, more ruthless thugs?
In a place as notoriously corrupt as Rio, I wonder how many of those bricks of pot and cocaine are going to end up back on the street within a week.
