Lance Armstrong's revenge?
Oh fuck, here we go...
Obviously, it's a blast of gas from Howard Stern's ass.
Third world Olympics.
Someone show this to diBlasio? We need progressive policing like this:
RIO DE JANEIRO: Police shot a mugger near the stadium where the Rio Olympics opening ceremony took place and a woman was killed close to another Olympic site, police said Saturday.
The violence on Friday highlighted the task facing an unprecedented force of 85,000 soldiers and police deployed to secure the Olympics.
Rio police said in a statement that a man was mugging people near the Maracana stadium when he was intercepted by one of the police officers sent from another area of Brazil to Rio as part of the huge reinforcements.
"The man was carrying out assaults when a military police officer... shot him," the statement said.
Hours earlier, an architect was killed while driving by one of the main entrances to the Olympic Boulevard, a redeveloped port area that now hosts the Olympic flame and has become a major tourist attraction.
The woman, 51, was attacked by three armed muggers, police said. She tried to flee and was shot in the head. The main focus of security is Rio, a city where drug traffickers control large parts of poor neighborhoods.
However, the deployment of troops and police- double the number used at the 2012 London Games- also includes the cities of Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Manaus, Salvador and Sao Paulo, where football matches are being played.
Brazil shows how seriously it is taking the threat of terrorism:
Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes, who surprised many latest week by saying the chances of a terror attack at the games were "following to zero" and that the bigger concern is Str crime. Just a day later, the federal police overseen by Moraes arrested ten Brazilians allegedly belonging to an amateur cell that'd professed allegiance to ISIS over the internet.
Obviously Brazil subscribes to the Obama Administration's policies of reporting the truth to the people?
"Get him off! Cut him off!"
