Interesting reaction by brazillian police in the case of the two british backpackers alleged insurance scam. If they did indeed scam, then I am on the side of the police (not often the case) for a number od reasons:

1. scamming adds to the cost of all our insuarance policies
2. rio gets bad name as crime hotspot which it may not deserve
3. gives all travellers a bad name
