Sao Paulo Prisons

I'm sure that a lot of have seen this but I thought I would put it up for anyone that has not.

At least 52 people have died in two nights of violence in Sao Paulo state, Brazil, with criminal gangs attacking police stations and riots in prisons. State officials say the unrest is being organised by the First Command of the Capital (PCC) criminal faction.

One wonders if the PCC has origins in the criminal/political dissent connection that we saw in the film from class? This article suggest that it does, find it here. The article showing the picture above can be found here.
