According to BBC, the country's police squad, in tandem with World Cup organizers, will hand out pamphlets before and during the events, which will say: "Do not react, scream or argue [if you're being robbed]."

Mario Leite, the director of World Cup security in Sao Paulo, elaborates: “Tourists come mainly from Europe and the United States, where they do not see this crime very often. There is no use crying over spilled milk.” Brazil, ahead of the World Cup, faces a soaring crime rate, so this advice, although unnerving to hear, might actually be useful.
