Chicago's Not Looking like Such a Bad Deal After All Now, Huh?

Police helicopter shot down in Olympic city Rio de Janeiro:
Drug traffickers shot down a police helicopter in a gun battle between rival gangs on Saturday, killing two officers, as the Brazilian city was engulfed in a renewed outburst of violence two weeks after winning its bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games.

My friend Stephen Blackmoore has a great blog where he passes on some of the crazy shit criminals get up to in LA. But you've gotta admit, actually shooting police choppers out of the sky makes the LA boys look pretty wimpy.

Hey, it's not like we don't try.

Elite Squad is a decent movie about cops patrolling the favelas of Rio. They are detailed to quiet the slums before the Pope arrives for a visit. Based on fact, I imagine that the same things will occur again before the Olympics.

Not to worry, the Peace Prize winning, Wall Street shill in the White House will make up all that lost Olympic gelt by hosting a Democratic Fund Raiser with his brethren at $15 dimes (that’s 15 thousand) a plate. Good to see the Savior remains comfortable amongst his (community organizing?) element.

What an empty suit this guy is turning out to be.
