Rio de Janeiro, known for its stunning beaches and lively culture, has been plagued by high levels of crime, including the smuggling of illegal equipment across the border and even by the police themselves.
Traffickers have developed various tactics to control their territory and avoid detection by law enforcement.
One of these tactics involves using a lookout to keep an eye on the entrances to their controlled communities.
In addition, they use jammers to block radio and GPS signals, making it difficult for outside observers to track their communications and movements.
These practices are not unique to Rio de Janeiro but are often seen in Paraguayan or Colombian militias.
In some cases, traffickers have resorted to using military equipment for storage and body support, blurring the lines between law enforcement and organized crime.
Shockingly, some of this equipment is even supplied by the local police. This situation raises serious concerns and calls for action to be taken by the authorities.
The smuggling of illegal equipment and the involvement of police in organized crime are serious issues that threaten the safety of the people of Rio de Janeiro.
The authorities must take strong measures to combat these practices and ensure the safety and security of the citizens.
It is crucial to address this ongoing battle against organized crime to protect the people and promote a safer Rio de Janeiro.
