Neither the police nor the protesters deserve any respect in my opinion. The protesters bc their main objective is to have a large government providing the basic "needs" of life such as transportation education health care and of course retirement. They also complain of corruption but fail to realize that it is very difficult to have a large government without corruption.
The police do not deserve much respect because they fail to protect businesses that are being ransacked by protesters. Normally i would not hold the police accountable for the protection of ones property but since brazilians have had guns nearly made illegal they no longer are able to protect themselves.
Brazil's fall will be much quicker than the usa simply because it does not jave the worlds reserve currency. But brazils fall will be less than debt ridden usa.
The system is slowly unravelling.
