We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

More robbing with a car hijacking to boot. You'd think such an event would have proper security where it matters.

American Swimmer douchebag Ryan Lochte robbed at gunpoint in cab by men "impersonating" police officers.


Notes from the above bbc article:
Quote
5 August - Two rowing coaches robbed at knifepoint on Ipanema beach, the Australian Olympic Committee says
6 August - Security co-ordinator for the opening ceremony targeted in attempted robbery as he left the Maracana stadium the morning after - his guards opened fire on the assailants, killing one of them
6 August - Portuguese education minister robbed in Ipanema as he was coming back from a cycling event
11 August - Russian swimmer Evgeny Korotyshkin (not a competitor) posted a photo on Instagram of two armed men who robbed him near Ipanema - the photo has since been taken down

Ryan Lochte's a liar fugitive for attention, not surprising.

Corruption abounds with boxing medals. That was the last thing I paid attention to. Burnt out on the perpetual mess. Volunteers quitting and striking over work conditions & lack of provided food. Paralympics scandal where all the budget money was used by corrupt officials & not put towards events. Some other shit.

This Ryan Lochte situation is actually worth discussing, especially if the gas station tapes are true. Reminds me of some entitled douchebag athletes that went on rampages in breck/keystone.

Latest is Brazil let his 2 homies go. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/olympics/brazil-stops-two-us-olympic-swimmers-from-leaving-country-over-robbery-case/2016/08/18/5bfdee66-6540-11e6-96c0-37533479f3f5_story.html

Quote
In the video, released by Brazilian police, gas station employees observe the athletes, then escort them out of the bathroom. In another clip, from a different camera angle, the athletes quickly seat themselves on the ground and raise their hands, as if ordered by a person with a gun. Veloso confirmed that one of the security guards produced the weapon to “contain” the swimmers so they could not leave without paying for the damage. “The firearm was used in a situation in which they were contained. When they were contained the firearm was put away,” he said.

So they were held at gunpoint briefly by security guards, giving some validity.
