Bolsonaro's Brazil: Murder, God and Carnaval Street Food in Brazil - RIO DE JANEIRO 2 days ago   30:25

ABC News In-depth
"People want to break the system - and the great symbol to break the system was Bolsonaro" – Rodrigo Amorim, MP and friend of new President Bolsonaro

Jair Bolsonaro vaulted to power on a pledge to smash corruption and endemic violent crime that sees around 60,000 in Brazil murdered each year. Bolsonaro lets police shoot to kill, his army of supporters love him for it. It seems not to matter that the former soldier praises past military dictatorships, or that he trash-talks women, or that he is a homophobe.

But there was one killing that’s become a rallying point for those who oppose the new president. Black, gay, favela-raised politician Marielle Franco was a fierce critic of a policing system that kills a reported 5000 people a year.

A year ago she and her driver were gunned down by unknown assailants. Just this month, two ex-military police were arrested in connection with the killings.

In death, Marielle Franco looms as large as she did in life. As preparations get under way for the spectacular annual Carnaval, huge flags are unfurled bearing her image. She has become a heroine and galvanising figure for opponents of the new order.

In Rio, reporter Sally Sara moves from wealthy gated communities to crime-infested favelas to explore why yet another democracy has turned to a hard-right absolutist leader.

I can rarely finish anything narrated by a moralizing Brit or Australian -- but this was pretty good. All Liberal Democracies end and they all end for the same reasons. Of course military dictatorship has to clean up the mess. Something similar happening in the USA. Is it fascism? Maybe but who cares. Reupholstered a bit, just enough. Bolsonaro seems like a natural ally, I hope it turns out that way.

The real pity is that too many people don't accept the first rule of life: No money, no kids.

Stop killing birds for carnaval.

You guys don't know anything about Brazil! Crime is not culture.
Pendulous Testicularis
Wherever there are blacks, there is poverty, violence and regression. Coincidence??
Diego Pereira Lopes
Assim os outros países acham que o Brasil se resume a carnaval e favela, lamentável documentário infeliz e tendencioso. Ou como nós brasileiros costumamos dizer uma bosta de documentário!!!!🤦🏻‍♂️🤢🤮🤮

As Brazilian my long term solution is very simple. To promote mass sterilization on favelas to reduce poverty and import middle class White European and Asian immigration

More bias news from the radical left news outlet who loves racial Marxism and hates white worldwide

I love Bolsonaro. Criminals will drop like flies.
Rio de Janeiro capital
Jorge Mendes
Rio de Janeiro is no long a cidade maravilhosa. RIO IS A SHIT HOLE.
Documentário bosta favorecendo a bandidagem.
Rodrigo Siloto
This documentary mentioned about 5,000 criminals killed by police every year but forgot to mention about 60,0000 people killed by criminals every year in Brazil as well.
Chyoma Meje
I cry for Brazil after watching this documentary.

Rio is for migrants that got tired of the journey.
Alexandre Pereira
This video is a lie. Violence has decreased since Bolsonaro took office. Glenn is a liar.
Vinícius Henrique
The truth is that after Bolsonaro got elected the homicides dropped 22.6%, that's the truth. Those journalists are the most disgusting people in the world. I wish very much that those drugdealers that they defend so much kiddnap them and do whatever they want.
Vinícius Henrique
This video is a complete disgrace made by disgraceful people. Brazil will shine in few decades as a world power!
This "ABC News in Depth" documentary is very biased! But best of all is how this documentary shows the contradiction of the very people who while talking badly use drugs in front of the camera.

What the documentary won't show is how the trafficking happens, where the money that goes out of the hands of these drug addicts goes into the hands of the drug dealer buying rifles, machine guns, pistols to fight the police when the police raid the hills to Search and apprehension of criminals, guns and drugs, but police are greeted by shooting! I ask: Can't cops defend themselves?

They talk about Brazilians as if it were pure Africa, kkkk! They speak of Mariele as if he were the only Brazilian unjustly killed just because she is black, they speak of Bolsonaro as if they were the villain of Brazil, but they forget that the true villains ruled in previous governments.

They talk of the police as if they were white uniformed men running after blacks for being black, but it seems they "ABC" are blind or dishonest because most of the police are brown and black, as are all the whole Brazilian people, mixed with Indian, black and White!

I'll give you a documentary tip! Why not make a documentary about the police in Brazil?

It's a lot of material for a great documentary!

Make documentary about the thousands of police officers killed in combat with bandits or criminals, show their family in mourning, show the day to day police, how they work to fight crime, the psychological trauma they suffer, the injured or that left them with serious sequels.

Make a documentary about violence in Brazil, why in Brazil dies more in a month than several years of war in Syria? There are 60,000 deaths a year! And how is the President striving to reduce these numbers with his decisions on government projects?

But that you ABC won't do!
Why? It has no commitment to the truth. Then go to shit !!!!!!

Ah ABC ! Australia is only Kangaroo and Sydnei?

Brazil is not only Rio de Janeiro, is not only Black people, is not only Carnaval, is not only the butts! ok
Хочу в Бразилию на карнавал.

Street Food in Brazil - Rio de Janeiro! #Brazil #RioDeJaneiro #BrazilianFood #streetfood

Ever since I first learned about the city of Rio de Janeiro when I was a kid growing up, I have wanted to visit. Finally, the time has come. In this Brazilian street food tour in Rio de Janeiro, we’ll go to eat some of the best street food snacks and dishes, some hole in the wall style Brazilian food restaurants, and also visit some of the most unbelievable and gorgeous sights and attractions in Rio de Janeiro. It’s one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited.

Here’s the Brazilian food and things we did:

Mineiro, Sausage Sandwich - 5 BRL ($1.26) - For Brazilian breakfast we headed to Mineiro for his neighborhood grilled sausage sandwich, topped with his house made aioli dressing, cheese, and lettuce, and his own home-made chili sauce. He’s not only an amazing guy, but his sausage sandwich is outstanding. When you’re in Rio de Janeiro, you don’t want to miss it. Located just outside Siqueira Campos MRT Metro station (Map:, sets up in the morning about 7 am.

Trem do Corcovado - 65 BRL ($16.44) - Christ the Redeemer - I pre-bought tickets online for the tram, so when we arrived we just picked up and printed the tickets. The tram took about 20 minutes and Christ The Redeemer at the top was breathtaking.

Selaron Steps - Another attraction in Rio de Janeiro that I wasn’t going to miss was the Selaron Steps, created by Chilean artist Selaron. They are so cool and so iconic.

Lunch at Bar Rex - For some seriously meaty Brazilian food, Bar Rex is the spot. They serve an major selection of drinks, but they also specialize in food like roasted chicken, sausages, and the oxtail. The food was outstanding, and the owners are just so cool. Location:

Ipanema Beach - World famous, one of the most well known beaches in the world, and for a good reason - the scenery is spectacular. We had a tea with Marcelo (5 BRL ($1.26) and then tried some of the Brazilian local favorite comfort Biscoito Globo cassava snacks. Finally, another iconic Brazilian drink is the caipirinha (15 BRL ($3.79) made on the beach.

Copacabana Beach - Next up on this Brazilian street food and attractions tour we stopped at the famous Copacabana Beach and had a coconut (6.50 BRL ($1.64) and continued on the Red Beach in Urca to get a good view of Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar).

Bar Urca - Also in Urca, you’ll find Bar Urca, an old food and bar establishment that’s famous for serving empada de camarão (6.50 BRL ($1.64), shrimp filled pastries. Many people order and then sit on the edge of the water in the evening. Location:

Bar Gato de Botas - A Brazilian boteco is a bar and restaurant that serves small plates of food similar to tapas. The owner of Bar Gato de Botas is a legend and his plates of Brazilian food are delicious. Location:

Brazilian meat kebabs - Finally to end this incredible street food tour of Rio de Janeiro, we returned back to the same spot where we had breakfast, but in the evening, a different yet equally friendly man sets up selling Brazilian meat kebas and home cooked Brazilian food. When you order a kebab, you can get it stopped with cassava powder and drenched in hot sauce - it was so good. Location: Sets up in the evening about 6 pm.

Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful city and this Brazilian street food tour and attraction in Rio was amazing - the food, the people, the scenery.
