Ok based on the context of this post, imma take a shot in the dark (no pun intended) and say this is Portuguese. Either way, may I have this translated please? I have a feeling Google won’t help me.


Argyreos17

"I'm brazilian and I can confirm, this note is true" (that last part is a reference to a viral meme where one kid tried convincing his parents that there wasn't going to be school the next day, and he wrote a note with "this note is true" misspeled in the end, it was super cute) Edit: maybe the context made it too confusing, the intended meaning is the same as "I'm brazilian and I can confirm, this is true"

Infelizmente acabou a competitividade, não existe mais nenhum adversário a altura do Botafogo na América do Sul. Está na hora do Botafogo ir pra Europa e jogar o Campeonato Inglês, ou em uma jogada mais ousada, se filiar a FIFA como uma seleção e disputar a copa do Qatar 2022.

GiveMeYourBussy

No you can't mug these people and end up on LiveLeak


flying_low_BR

Most Brazilians don't own guns and even the ones who do don't carry them around except for cops, criminals and some very few exceptions. There are not many undercover cops. The ones that act in the videos you see are mostly off-duty but in some Brazilian cities cops never let their guard down and carry a gun to act if necessary.


Ajawad87

I completely agree. And the shootings are almost always justified. But somehow, whenever there’s criminals, there always seems to be an undercover cop ready to shoot him down. I’ve seen dozens of these videos myself, and every time a new one comes out, everyone is always perplexed by the amount of times this happens. Edit: when Reddit talks about “Americans,” they are referring to North America, not South America. Technically, they are both called “America,” but they are not the same. Edit 2: selection bias is a valid criticism. However, look up all the videos of violent criminals getting shot down. A majority of them are from Brazil. So not all criminals get shot down, but if they do, it’s usually in Brazil.


flying_low_BR

Well, shootout videos go viral easily and if you watch something the algorithm will recommend you more of the same.


Ajawad87

No, i used to find them on another website without algorithms. Anytime someone was armed and ready to deal with violent criminals, it always happened to be undercover cops in Brazil. It wasn’t a bad thing. I respected that. The meme is in fun and games.


ThirdWorldEngineer

>another website without algorithms Son, there is something you would know.


JTitor00

There are a lot of sites that don't personalize your content at all.


anencephallic

Even then, you would be hard pressed to find a website completely without using algorithms at some point. But that's nitpicking. :)


walter_midnight

Yeah, but those kinds aren't it. Tracking is everywhere.


twentyfuckingletters

This is pretty funny, got a chuckle. There are still a few static websites out there though, so who knows.


TheStaRoee

Well, if you want to see the parts where there isn't a cop you need to visit other sites... You looking in the wrong place... People love watching the heroic cop rather then people getting shot without reason


salikabbasi

I don't know how interesting you think muggings look but there are definitely a 1000x more videos out there of people being mugged with no repercussions than there are people shooting muggers. It's why it gets posted, that shit is exceptional. It's a selection bias.


mclemente26

That is just [selection bias](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selection_bias). No videos of successful robberies doesn't mean successful robberies don't exist, it just means the videos don't attract upvotes.


arthurazs

There is just too much robbery in Brazil. Thus, **occasionally**, there will be an undercover cop. Reiterating what u/flying_low_BR said. Cops, even when off-duty, carry guns because it's too unsafe for them not to. If they get robbed, and the robber finds out they are a cop, the robber will most likely shoot/kill them.


horsecockgentleguy

Brazilian here >I completely agree. Well, not a matter of opinion, but a fact lol >I’ve seen dozens of these videos myself, and every time a new one comes out, everyone is always perplexed by the amount of times this happens. It's kinda the same effect of when you see people who accomplished great things, you're only seeing those who succeded, so it seems easier or more likely than it actually is. And in this case, you're only seeing the videos that there was a cop there, so it seems to be the standard or at least common. >And the shootings are almost always justified. Same goes here, I haven't watched news or tv in general for years but I've seen some cases that it wasn't. >undercover cop Mostly off-duty or retired ones. Anyway, hope that helps to clarify it lol


pre_suffix

>Well, not a matter of opinion, but a fact lol Too bad nowadays facts are becoming more matters of opinion because "muh feelings"


super_salty_boi

No, they are referring to people in the US, but there isn't a word to specify that we're talking about people from the US


walter_midnight

Lol nonsense, so many shootings where innocents get offed without much consideration, you're living in a very tight bubble if you think this is true.


btk79

So why the fuck did you post this here? Just to fuel that flawled belief?


muralsoflife

"Shootings are almost always justified" is the biggest bullshit I've ever read on this site holy shit.

HereToDoThingz

There's tons of Americans that shouldn't own guns. Lmao. Like. Fucking tons.


DeeJason

Tons he says. 1 ton is like 4 Americans.


Renan_PS

Yes but the ones who do make up for them by owning a lot, in America there are more registered guns than people (if I recall corectly it's almost the same amount, 101 guns for each 100 people) while in Brazil that number is much lower because guns are expensive and gun licenses are even more expensive, also basically anything that isn't a pistol or hunting rifle is ilegal, so the USA has a much larger gun culture than Brazil, it is not our constitutional right to bear arms, we had periods of strict gun regulation and liberal gun regulation. Edit: Also important to mention that the strict gun control creates a huge black market for guns in Brazil, so this means we can't know for certain which country has more guns, but on the legal side it is the USA for sure.


Assaltwaffle

[120 per 100, actually.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estimated_number_of_civilian_guns_per_capita_by_country)

the US doesn’t have a gun registry it’s one of the reasons we don’t actually know how many there are here


rataktaktaruken

But the laws to carry firearms are very strict in Brazil

FloatingRevolver

> even the ones who do don't carry them around except for cops I don't know if you've been to America but regardless of what you see on reddit and Twitter. It's actually extremely rare to see someone carrying a gun around...I'm 33, I've mostly lived in Florida, Alabama, and Arkansas and I can count on one hand the amount of times I've seen someone open carrying a firearm...


muuuuuuuuuuuuuustard

I’m from Kentucky/Tennessee and I have *never* seen a person hold a gun outside a gun range or the back woods of a farm (that’s being used as a gun range for the time being)


FloatingRevolver

Exactly, people who form their opinions of America based off of Twitter think America is some divided warzone when in reality its nothing like that at all...in day to day life you will mostly see friendly people of all backgrounds and races that are more then happy to help eachother whenever needed... But that doesn't get clicks and likes...


muuuuuuuuuuuuuustard

America is literally just like everywhere else, we just happen to be center-stage in geopolitics for various reasons, so all of our ugly secrets and problems are a lot easier to advertise to everyone


The__Protagonist

Hmmmm its almost like this applies elsewhere


dedasdude

Based on the content we see from Brazil, everyone is either a cop, a criminal, or an undercover cop. /j


Yadobler

Shhhhhh We all know everyone is either a criminal or off duty cop. There's no exception. There isn't even an on duty cop

ThunderStrikez

its a good show


Bobyyyyyyyghyh

It really is a good show. With the exception of some really weird and inconsistent writing in season 3, although season 3 was still really fun to watch if you put that aside. If you like heists in any form, you'll like the great pretender Edit; Part 4, not 3. My bad.


rainzer

> season 3 It has a Season 3?


Bobyyyyyyyghyh

Sorry, case 3 Edit: I meant case 4 my bad. The dad one


AgentWowza

It's weird, I liked case 3 the most cuz there's not a lot of internal fuckery, and the stakes aren't as high as the other ones. It's a nice, chill and logical scam yknow?

Can you explain what's happening in this clip. It looks so ridiculous lol


Hydraxion

They're celebrating. That's literally it


drdfrster64

If I remember correctly, >!in this part of the heist it’s a whole my double cross is actually a double cross is actually my double cross sort of thing. It’s too much to explain but basically at this point of the season finale the negotiations have pretend gone bad, and they need to act like there’s a whole shootout going on between the Yakuza/mafia and the FBI. The yakuza/Chinese mafia boss (who they’re robbing) have safely been dragged out of the shootout for their safety and are outside the doors waiting for the shootout to end. In reality, everyone else in the shootout are in this together and are fake shooting to buy time for their escape. Hence the POLICE vests and generic gangster suits. The room they’re in is actually a giant elevator which needs time to lower and be replaced!<


toofloated

My first thought was literally "Huh, I don't remember this episode of The Boondocks" But this show looks sick with an impressively dumb scene like this

mikeoxlong126

Not just any they have to have a reason, was the robber armed? Was he fleeing? Did he pose a threat to anyone around? I’m not saying one way or the other on if it was justified, but different stations have different rules.


Ajawad87

He 100% deserved it. Violent robbery of a helpless woman. I enjoy those social justice videos. But I’ve seen more of these types of videos than i can count from Brazil. Every time these videos come out, everyone asks, “is every citizen in Brazil an armed undercover cop?”

Nooblord29

The Brazilian government thought it would be a great idea to ban weapons (you can still buy handguns, but it's extremely expensive, time consuming and exclusive) in order to reduce crime. Result: Crime skyrocket since the ban, with Brazil now having more annual deaths from firearms than some warzones. The people that shouldn't have weapons (criminals and sickos) are getting them anyways through black markets. The police is too underpaid, outgunned and incompetent to deal with the massive waves of crime The poor bastards that manage to aquire a handgun have ridiculous limitations, like severely limited amount of ammo, so you can't really practice shooting, as well as ridiculous expectations as to how to use it, for example, you're expected to hit an assailant in the hands/legs, if you know about shooting, you know this is almost impossible to pull off on the fly. Moral of the story: Brazilians love guns because our government tried to pull an 1st world move and fucked up in biblical levels.


lolonha

Ih pessoal, esse aqui usa o brasilivre


Brunonotthatbruno

kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk


Pale_Title6460

> with Brazil now having more annual deaths from firearms than some warzones Also worth noting that much like the US, Brazil is a huge country with lots of variation between regions and states. Some southern/southeast states, which are more economically developed, have homicide rates similar to the US average (still high, but not that absurd) while less developed northern/northeast states have homicide rates 5 times higher than that, which is what brings the country average up. So while Brazil is by no means a safe country, most of the population does not actually live in warzone-like areas when it comes to gun deaths.
