I was watching Vienna before it's always an issue early in the week for these events especially in this season.

Acapulco and Buenos Aires have great crowds even for the early rounds. Even then there are still more people there than in Shanghai for the early matches.

Hey mate, I wonder what you mean with this question.

Because if I recall well the Bus 174 was a case of a hijacked bus in which the kidnapper (the bandit) took a woman as a hostage and she ended up being killed by the policeman that tried to kill the bandit.

I wonder what " magnitude" means to you or at least what kind of magnitude you imput to this case. Because violence is widespread in Brazil, in the sense that in the big cities like Rio or Sao Paulo you can always get killed from out of nowhere. Of course the violence isnt as big as it was in the eighties or in the begining of the nineties, but cases like the Bus 174 are common . I would say we have one big case of violence like this each couple of years.So if Bus 174 was in 2002, we could name at least more 5 cases of the same magnitude.


For example, a) On April 7, 2011, 23-year-old gunman Wellington Menezes Oliveira killed at least 12 students in his former school. The crime occurred in the Tasso da Silveira elementary public school, located in Realengo neighbourhood.

What this means? It means last year we had a shooting in a school in Rio de Janeiro, the same way this happens at least 3-5 times per decade (is it right?) in the United States. I would say this had at least the same magnitude of the Bus 174 case- children died because of a psycopath.

b) We can go back to 1993- Murder of Candelaria, in Rio also, when eight kids were murdered by policemen that had a lot of repercusion.


The police in Brazil faces a big war against drug dealers, and criminals, but it is relatively safe to live in Rio and Sao Paulo. Dont use jewelry, hide your phone, dont open your notebook in a cab or in a car and you get the same luck of me - I was robbed only once while walking through the streets of the center of Sao Paulo in 5 years. The biggest problems are in the slums, but sometimes violence reaches the common people- high and middle class, and its reasonably common.


I am trying to remember similar cases of violence....I remmber this year a policeman killed a middle-class advertising agent in a pursuit in a noble neighbourhood in Sao Paulo... it didnt reach the same magnitude but I think its a pretty serious case ....also I can remember of many cases in which the police kills people alleging "self defense". The police in Brazil is badly trained. It kills a lot more that the police of other countries.

I heard an amount of 3500 are murdered in the city of Sao Paulo every year. And one must guees how many are not hidden by the police statistics, that try to sell the idea that the homicides are diminishing.

Having said that, I should watch the documentary to try to understand a bit more the subject.

yeah i saw that my question was unclear. i meant by media coverage because once the hostage situation ends. it's seem that half the population of rio were outside of the bus waiting to get piece of him. the conclusion of the situation, the documentary shows the final moments from different angles, so obvious their was heaps of media and broadcast live to people at home. so they were seeing everything unfolding live as it was happening.

anyways thanks for the information about other accounts, as for the documentary i thought it was brilliant. it cover all aspects of the situation with interviews police officers, hostages etc. plus it give a great background on the guy (sandro) that took the people hostage and police corruption in brazil. it's shows how much socioeconomic status effect one's behaviour and personality growing up. halfway through the documentary, they're talking about a survey that was taken in brazil about what people should do in situation in favelas. the outcome that most of majority agreed that should clean the streets by killing everyone living there.

so the ending with hordes of people looking for blood of sandro was expected, just very disappointing that it's 2012 and people still think like this.

Yeah. it happens that the people on Rio can get very emotional and sentimental, perhaps more than the people in Sao Paulo because you know, Rio has more of a popular feeling, even if you have the slums and all the stuff you always can feel a little bit more of humanity because people are more closed interacted. Is not like Sao Paulo where you have the noble neighbourhood and then the poor ones, the slums in Rio are closer to the rich people so the poor, the nature, the rich get mixed up in a more " solidarity" feeling for example in such a tropical paradise world.

I remember a kidnapping that happened some years ago of a girl called Eloa by his ex- boyfriend and the guy in the end killed her. You could see there were lots of people around the building besides the police. I think the people always get curious on those cases that are broadcasted via media, because in Brazil is common to have some policial shows showing crimes, murderes and the police around 6- 7 p.m.

The thing is that even with all the violence the brazilian is an emotiona person that believes he knows whats best for the country or the society. Also remember that people that studies movies in Brazil are all left-wing people that try always to highlight the social problems.

That's not a recent post, Maria. Gago made a brief appearance during Nadal's clay season domination.
