ABC 7 has a good video today talking about some of the negatives and positives surrounding Rio's 2016 Olympic Bid. One thing is for certain, it really is a beautiful city and would be a picturesque setting for the Olympics.
On the other hand, violence is a huge factor. According to the video more then 2,000 people were murdered in Rio last year (which averages to nearly 38 a week. Yikes!).
We couldn't post the video, but here is the link if you want to check it out.
