We’re not trying to be negative here, but things are kind of falling apart in Rio de Janeiro.

With just a month to go before the Olympic games kick off, the city really couldn’t be in a much worse position. Crime is on the rise, basic necessities are in short supply, and the Brazilian government just approved a nearly $1 billion (USD) emergency bailout in an attempt to get things back on track. Here’s a look at what’s going on:

This is how police are greeting newcomers

An Olympic athlete was already robbed at gunpoint

And a dismembered body washed up near the volleyball venue

No biggie.

Crime is on the rise…and nothing seems to be being done about it

And then there’s the Zika virus, which is causing athletes to bow out

Sure is shaping up to be an awesome Olympics, isn’t it?

For more information about the problems looming over the summer games, check out the video above.
