Thinking about heading to Rio for the Olympics?
You might want to have a look at this audio slide show from the favelas up at the New Yorker's site. It accompanies a really stunning article in this weeks edition in which reporter Jon Lee Anderson interviews one of the gang bosses (and a bunch of other people) in one of the notorious slums of Rio. People have been killed (and chopped up into little pieces) for less. Anyway, there's a link to the article in the slide show and you should read it.
