Hi Andre

I heard about this on the news this morning but did not realize 
the extent of what was happening.   It is being 
covered here in Canada.

americas/brazilian-cops-and-military-surround-search-gang-turf/
article1814611/>

Your report though really gives a truer picture 
of what is really going on.   

The more people around the world know what 
is going on the more support the people have to 
get rid of the criminal organizations.

I hope you are safe and I hope you and your
 fellow citizens are soon free of the criminal
organizations and can walk in you city 
freely and safely.

Martin
