|RIO DE JANEIRO Cheap Xavier Rhodes Jersey , Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Nearly 1,000 Brazilian troops were deployed on Friday to a favela, or slum, in the southeastern city of Rio de Janeiro, in a bid to wrest control from local drug gangs.
The 950 soldiers backed up by 10 armored vehicles cordoned off Rocinha Cheap Joe Berger Jersey , Rio's largest slum, located in the southern part of the city, and exchanged gunfire with gang members, alarming local residents.
"Rocinha" was trending on Twitter as Brazilians and foreigners there posted comments while events unfolded.
"The atmosphere is tense here in Rocinha," one user said.
Rio state Governor Luiz Fernando Pezao requested the military intervention following five days of intense shootouts between rival drug gangs.
"We are not going to let up in Rocinha Cheap Kai Forbath Jersey ," said Pezao, adding:" We have discovered a significant amount of arms and drugs in a region we have advanced on."
Military police have carried out daily anti-crime operations in the favela since Sunday, when the shootouts between rival groups first broke out.
Favela residents were posting photos of the fighting on social networks, including bullet-ridden walls, spent shells everywhere and the gruesome image of a burnt corpse atop a smoldering pile of rubbish.
According to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics Cheap Nick Easton Jersey , Rocinha was the city's largest favela in 2010, with more than 69,000 inhabitants.
In 2012, the Rio de Janeiro state government created the Pacifying Police Units (UPP) to enforce peace inside favelas. Though they did not eliminate drug trafficking, they succeeded in curbing violence.
This latest flare-up of violence comes less than a month after officials cut back UPP personnel by 30 percent due to budget shortfalls.

Philippe Petit certainly has no fear of heights. This is the French man who came into the spotlight for virtually dancing his way across a wire between the twin towers in New York on one August morning in 1974. Petit's feat has more recently become the subject of the film "man on wire" and has refreshed our minds (those who can remember back to then) as to how amazing this actually was.
Petit had a history of taking what appeared to the observer a casual stroll along high wires strung between famous buildings or structures - the Notre Dame, Louisiana Superdome Cheap Mike Remmers Jersey , The Eiffel Tower and The Sydney Harbor Bridge to name a few. What looks to be casual took a great deal of planning. His walk at the World Trade Centre took six years to plan. Although clearly not afraid of heights, he had to be aware of every aspect which might have an effect upon his walk - primarily how the buildings moved in the wind. The logistics of how to get a strong enough wire across that famous gap and to gain access without getting caught were also major issues to be overcome.
Petit displays all of the attributes of a man on a mission. He clearly has a burning desire to succeed and does not let any obstacles get in his way. He also likes to achieve things which others would think impossible. He loves the challenge. And this is a major key to being successful - if you love what you do, you will keep doing it and therefore achieve success. If you do not love what you do it becomes very easy to give up.
Petit's background as a tight-rope walker, unicyclist, magician and pantomime artist Cheap Riley Reiff Jersey , paved the way to choosing the type of challenges he faced. You can even see how his abilities as a magician were applied in how he managed to gain access to the towers time and again during his six years of preparation. He chose a challenge which suited his strengths. Once out on that wire, he wasn't satisfied with one crossing between buildings, he made EIGHT crossings, and only stopped when he was literally made to do so. He had a ball out there!
But to those who suffer with a fear of heights it was a terrifying spectacle to watch. The mere thought of it has the ability to completely turn your stomach (if you are afraid of heights, that is). Even for those who are generally comfortable about more run of the mill circumstances which involve heights Cheap Latavius Murray Jersey , this spectacle has the ability to make one?s heart jump and leap into your mouth, to say the very least. Here we see how naturally empathetic we are. Even babies show a natural tendency to empathy, displaying distress upon hearing the sound of another baby crying. We learn emotional responses to individual circumstances by picking up such vibes, as well as by mimicking and copying.
On can see how easy it is to "pick up" a fear of heights simply by being aware of another's fear. Clearly Petit was not exposed to such fear. He has a logical awareness of potential danger and finds away to make his chance of success as high as possible.
Just for a moment, imagine a different scenario. If as a child your mum was a little bit over-protective Cheap Danielle Hunter Jersey , and perhaps a tiny bit anxious (or very anxious) when you decided, as children do, that you wanted to walk along the top of a wall or climb a tree, do you think you might have picked up (due to a natural inclination to empathize and due to the fact that your mom is the person whom you look to for guidance - she is the person who is always "right") a little bit of her fear of falling? And then if the same sensations of anxiety were transmitted the next time you decided to go on a climbing expedition, and then the next Cheap Eric Kendricks Jersey , is.
