In Brazil, don't resist a robbery... you might end up murdered!
 
The idea is apparently to warn visitors not to provoke robbers into further violence, and avoid the increasingly common crime of "latrocinios" - or robbery that ends in murder. "Tourists come mainly from Europe and the United States, where they do not see this crime very often," says Mario Leite, who is in charge of World Cup security in Sao Paulo.

I guess you hide your money and cards in many wallets.

I have mixed feelings to that report. Whilst there's an important message in there, I can't help but think it's sending the wrong message to would be thief's.

It's really special our way to react to violence in Brazil, but the hero is not very appreciate, also the police will not do any effort in investigate or get murders and robbers in to jail, so if something happen while you be there it was just your bad luck.
