I was appalled at how children in Brazil are treated. Here in the U.S.A., we value the life of a child so much that you can drop off a baby at a police station or fire house and leave them there, no questions asked. In Brazil, many of those children would be left out the cold to fend for themselves. Even the police mistreat children, instead of offering help. Sure they rob and steal but that's so they can get by every day. It's a shame to see the conditions in which these children grow up. Brazil has a major problem that needs to be addressed and it seems as if all they're going to do is neglect the future of their country. I have a dozen cousins the same age as those kids and it makes you sad to think of them in those conditions, stealing, robbing, and sometimes killing just to live through the nights.
