what the heck are we doing in rio? The violence, the health conditions. If I was the USA team I would not have gone or pull out now. You don't know what health problems are going to come up later on. I know they trained all their lives for this but YOUR LIFE is more important.

I remember back in March of 2005 that was the norm on Copacabana beach a band of kids and a one eyed dog use to terrorize the tourist but when I returned in November that same year all the children bandits were gone. I inquired about them with one of the locals and he replied the police probably gathered them up and shot them. That response disturbed me more than the children bandits.
