THE OLYMPICS ARESET TO TAKE PLACE IN REAL AND THERE ARE REPORTS INDICATINGTHAT THE VIOLENCE IN RIO NOT ONLY CONTINUES AMONG THOSE ñ ITTURNS OUT THE VIOLENCE HAS ESCALATED QUITE A BIT BECAUSE OFDRUG GANGS FEUDING WITH LOCAL POLICE.

A NUMBER OF VIOLENT ACTSHAVE TAKEN PLACE OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU ANEXAMPLE.

APPARENTLY THERE WAS A DRUG KINGPIN WHO WAS BEINGTARGETED BY POLICE OFFICIALS.

DURING A GUNFIGHT HE WASHOSPITALIZED.

WHILE HE WAS HOSPITALIZED, AND UNDERPROTECTIVE CUSTODY, IT TURNS OUT SOME OF HIS GANG FRIENDS TRIEDTO GET HIM OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.

THEY SHOWED UP WITH THEIRWEAPONS AND STARTED SHOOTING THE HOSPITAL UP.

CNN HAS MORE INFORMATION.

TAKE ALOOK? >> A CLASH BETWEEN POLICE ANDGANGS AND ONE OF RIO DE JANEIRO'S IMPOVERISHED PLACES.

WITH CIVILIANS CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

URBAN WARFARE IN DENSELYPOPULATED COMMUNITIES, WHERE PARENTS STRUGGLE TO KEEP THEIRCHILDREN SAFE.

THIS WOMAN SAYS TWO BULLETS FLEW INTO ACHILDREN'S REC CENTER.

WHEN ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIERS ANDPOLICE SPECIAL FORCES MOVE-IN, THEY TRIGGERMORE GUNFIRE.

IT'S NOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU'DEXPECT IN THE HOST CITY OF THE UPCOMING SUMMER OLYMPICS.

>> THAT WAS ONE MAJOR STORY OUTOF BRAZIL, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT SHOULD MAKE ALL OFTHOSE GOING TO THE OLYMPICS CONCERNED.

RECENTLY THERE WAS APHOTO UPLOADED ON SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURING A GANG MEMBER HOLDINGAN AR 15.

HE WAS POINTING IT TOWARDS VEHICLES.

IS A ROAD THATHELPS TOURISTS GO FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE OLYMPIC VILLAGEIN RIO.

THAT IS A CAUSE FOR CONCERN BECAUSE THERE IS ATREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF VIOLENCE ON THE RED LINE, BUT ALSO THEYELLOW LINE, ANOTHER ROAD.

IT'S INSANE BECAUSE APPARENTLY GANGSWILL GO UP TO PEOPLE'S CARS AND SHOOT THEM UP.

I HAVE HEARDSTORIES OF PEOPLE GETTING SHOT AND KILLED JUST WITHIN THE LASTFEW WEEKS.

OFFICIALS IN RIO ARE TRYING TO THINK THEY DON'T HAVEA PROBLEM.

THEY TOOK $500,000 OUT OF THEIR SECURITY FUNDBECAUSE OF THE ECONOMY.

THE ECONOMY IS NOT SOGOOD IN BRAZIL.

IF THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGHRESOURCES TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE, AND YOU SEE THIS UPTICK INVIOLENCE, IT IS A CAUSE FOR CONCERN? >> THIS IS PARTLY RELATED TOOIL.

BRAZIL HAS A TON OF OIL, ONE OF THE COUNTRIES IN THEWORLD THAT HAS THE MOST OIL.

WHEN OIL PRICES PLUMMETED,BRAZIL'S ECONOMY WAS DEPENDENT ON OIL, AND IT CREATED HUGEBUDGETARY PROBLEMS.

THIS MIGHT NOT OF BEEN SO BAD IF THEREWASN'T SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION WHERE THE PEOPLE IN POWER REDIRECTEDTHAT OIL MONEY TO THEMSELVES INSTEAD OF THE PEOPLE WHO COULDHAVE USED IT IN THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS WE JUST SHOWEDYOU.

MAYBE THERE MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN AS MUCH CRIME IF THERE WASMORE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY, EDUCATION.

INSTEAD OFJUDICIOUSLY USING THE RESOURCES OF THE COUNTRY FOR THE PEOPLE,INSTEAD IT HAPPENS ALL ACROSS THE WORLD THE RICH AND THEPOWERFUL TOOK A LOT OF THAT MONEY AND PUT IT IN THEIRPOCKET, AND THEY DIDN'T SHARE.

NOW BRAZIL IS A DISASTER.

THEOLYMPICS IS ALREADY AN EPIC DEBACLE.

EVERY COUNTRY THAT HASTHE OLYMPICS HAS SOME ISSUES.

BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH MEDIAAROUND THOSE ISSUES, THOSE ISSUES WILL GET SPOTLIGHTED.

NOTEVERYBODY IS GETTING SHOT IN BRAZIL OR GETTING THE ZIKAVIRUS.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

WHAT HAPPENS ISTHERE IS THIS HUGE DIVIDE AMONG POLICE AND THE DRUG DEALERS, ANDTHE DRUG TRAFFICKERS THAT LIVE THERE.

OFTENTIMES POLICE DON'TEVEN POLICE THOSE AREAS BECAUSE OF HOW DANGEROUS IT IS.

THEYWILL CONTINUE PROTECTING THE WEALTHIER AREAS OF BRAZIL.

RIGHTNOW YOU ARE SEEING THE VIOLENCE INCREASE, THEY ARE CUTTING THEBUDGET FOR SECURITY, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO BRUSH THIS ISSUEUNDER THE RUG.

I AGREE, WHENEVER YOU HAVE THE LIPIDS IN ANYCOUNTRY YOU WILL SEE SOME STORIES SENSATIONALIZED.

BUT WEHAVE SPECIFIC EVIDENCE SHOWING THE UPTICK IN VIOLENCE.

THERENEEDS TO BE SOMETHING DONE.

I DON'T THINK THEY WILL RETHINKTHE DECISION TO DO IT IN RIO, BUT IT DOES PUT PEOPLE ATRISK? >> UNFORTUNATELY THIS ALL COMESBACK TO MONEY.

IF THEY HAD TAKEN MOST OF THE MONEY AND CORRUPTIONAND ACTUALLY CARED ENOUGH TO POLICE THOSE AREAS AND ACTUALLYMAKE THEM PROSPER, IF THEY CARED ABOUT THIS PEOPLE INSIDE WHATARE NOW SLUMS AND THEN MAYBE WE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THIS ISSUE INTHE FIRST PLACE.

NOW THEY HAVE INVESTED TOO MUCH MONEY IN THEOLYMPICS TO MOVE IT.

THERE IS NO WAY BRAZIL IS GOING TO SAY IT ISTOO DANGEROUS HERE, GO DO IT SOMEWHERE ELSE.

INCONCEIVABLE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS ON FIRE.

THE MOSTIMPORTANT THING IS THEY DON'T WANT THEIR MONEY ON FIRE.

THEYARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ALL THOSE TOURISTS COMING IN AND PUTTINGMONEY BACK INTO THE ECONOMY.

NOW IT LOOKS LIKE NOT AS MANYTOURISTS MIGHT COME IN.

SO THEY MIGHT BE LOSING A TON OF MONEYON THIS OLYMPICS AT A TIME WHEN THEIR ECONOMY CANNOT AFFORDIT? >>YOU COULD NOT PAY ME TO GO TOTHE OLYMPICS IN BRAZIL.

I DON'T CARE IF PEOPLE THINK THESEACCUSATIONS ARE OVERBLOWN.

ANYONE, REGARDLESS OF HOWINNOCENT YOU ARE, COULD BE A VICTIM IN THIS.

LAST MONTH THEREWAS A 17-YEAR-OLD GIRL THAT DIED BY BEING HIT ñ THAT JUSTHAPPENED.

>> THAT AR 15 PICTURE LOOKS ALITTLE WEIRD TO ME.

IF YOU LIKE IT IS ALMOST A MARKETINGCAMPAIGN AGAINST BRAZIL AT THIS POINT.

IT RAISES A COUPLE OF REDFLAGS FOR ME.

THERE ARE VENTURE CAPITALISTS IN THE WORLD WHOSOMETIMES BENT ON CURRENCY, ECONOMIES, AND IF THEY SHORTEDBRAZIL THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN PICTURES LIKE THAT WOULD SHOWUP.

BY THE WAY, THE PICTURE OF AN AR 15 POINT AT THINGS,WELCOME TO AMERICA.

>> BUT WHY WOULD WE WANT TO TAKEF-15S AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE OF BRAZIL? HAVE THEY HAD THEIR DUEPROCESS YET? >> ACCORDING TO AMERICAN LOGIC I'MSURE IT IS KEEPING THEM SAFER.

>> WE JUST NEED TO MAKE SURETHAT EVERYONE ON THE ROAD HAS AN AR 15 SO THEY CAN PROTECTTHEMSELVES.

ANYWAY ñ.

>>TO BE FAIR, IT HAS WORKED ONME.

I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT IS PROPAGANDA.

I'M SURE IT'S REAL.

THAT IS ALSO TRUE.

THERE IS THE ZIKA VIRUS, THOSE THINGS ARETRUE.

THE DEGREE OF SEVERITY IS UNCLEAR.

BUT HASN'T WORKED ONME? YES.

THAT IS THE STATE THAT BRAZIL IS IN RIGHT NOW AND THATIS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO BE.
