Private police industry messes up Rio Olympics security

This video from Britain says about itself:

Welcome to the Private Police Force – A Bit of Fry and LaurieBBC

19 December 2008

A man returns from holiday to find his local police station has undergone some serious renovations!

In 2012, the Olympic games were in London, England. The British Conservative government then outsourced security to the big mercenary corporation G4S. G4S made a total mess of that. So, at the last minute the government provided army soldiers.

In 2016, Friday 5 August, the Olympic games will start in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Recently, a coup against democratically elected President Dilma Rousseff brought a right-wing government to power. On July 1 2016, according to the Wall Street Journal, the Brazilian coup government outsourced security at the Olympics to privatized police mercenary colleagues of G4S, Artel.

Like four years ago, it now turns out the privateers have made a total mess of security. So, at the last minute, the Brazilian government announces now that they will bring in thousands of extra military police.
