. May 16, 2006 SouthAmerica: Sao Paulo, Brazil is in the middle of a gang war since last Friday and more than 80 people have died in the conflict so far The drug gangs are causing havoc and panic in the city of Sao Paulo. All of this mess started when the government moved two drug dealers in the middle of the night to an undisclosed location to disconnect these guys from their illegal drug empires. In retaliation these criminals are cause chaos in the city of Sao Paulo â they burned dozens of buses and caused schools to close and commerce to close early because of the safety of employees. I canât believe that my town is in a state of civil war. The ironic thing is that I know how to solve this illegal drug problem in Brazil and I came to my conclusion after extensively studying the illegal drug problem here in the United States when I did research for one of my books. The answer to defeat the drug trade it is found in âEconomic Theoryâ - and not in guns, helicopters and other regular warfare tactics and strategies. ************* âPolÃcia admite que estÃ¡ "em guerra" contra o PCC e monta megaoperaÃ§Ã£o de combateâ A Folha de Sao Paulo â May 16, 2006 No terceiro dia consecutivo de ataques criminosos da facÃ§Ã£o PCC em SÃ£o Paulo, o comandante-geral da PM, coronel Elizeu Eclair Teixeira Borges, admitiu que o Estado "estÃ¡ em guerra".
