Can Rio Solve Its Crime Problem Before the Olympics?

Can Rio Solve Its Crime Problem Before the Olympics?

To answer the question above we will have to turn to the Oracle at Delphi.

This historical inequality problem and the complete disregard with which the powers that be treat the disadvantaged population is an impediment to progress in the Wonderful City.

Do we have time, in six years, to give the hapless population long used to inattention a measure of security? Only if we started working yesterday. It is imperative that the authorities in Rio de Janeiro address the rampant poverty on the hills of the city and give the shanty-town dwellers hope for a better future.

Education, decent jobs and food on their tables will do the trick. It should be done sooner rather than later. Let us wish ourselves luck.

  1. Wouldn't it be great if we lived in a world all that would happen without the push of an Olympic committee?

  2. Yes, Howard. Those contrasting differences in society. Especially in Latin America.
