See, this is why the people of Brazil can’t have anything.
As Brazilian authorities try to make sure that they can attract people to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics despite “City Of God” fears, these fools pull this act of random ridiculousness.
Armed robbers have invaded a luxury Rio de Janeiro hotel, robbing guests of money and phones, Brazilian police say.
Four men scaled the wall to enter the Santa Teresa Hotel in central Rio early in the morning, officers said.
Rio authorities have been occupying several shantytowns to root out drug gangs and tackle violent crime.
But security is an issue for Rio as it prepares to hold World Cup matches in 2014 and host the 2016 Olympics.
The Santa Teresa hotel, located in the neighbourhood of the same name, offers “peace of mind and safety” to guests, according to its website.
But security cameras showed four men getting over the perimeter wall in the early hours of Monday.
The attackers stole from at least 10 guests, among them foreign tourists, Brazilian media reported.
The robbers escaped and there were no reports of any injuries to the guests.
It’s too bad that this is how we have to find out about the Santa Teresa Hotel. Because it really looks like the type of fly spot we’d like to call home for a couple of days.
