Yeah that was a seriously misinformed statement. East Hastings is rough with a capital R but there is, unfortunately, so much worse out there.

Definitely the worst street in urban Canada, but not the worst street on Earth.

And Crackland in San Paulo looks like an average open air drug market in the Tenderloin SF. Once you stoop that low it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, it’s bedrock. I used to drive real slow in the Loin because of nodding zombies like in the OP. Sometimes they would jump out trying to get hit. Cop should have been a lot more careful

Take a look at Liberia Around minute 14 is pretty crazy, but minute 16 is just terrible. THAT is bedrock, America still plenty has room to fall

That’s a general poverty slum, I’m talking about open air drug dens. I think the Nigerian slum that’s on stilts is more horrifying than that Liberian one though

That's literally what this area looks like if you've set foot there.

Take a look at Liberia for some real perspective, Paulo didn’t look that bad tbh. Around minute 14 is pretty crazy, but minute 16 is just terrible. What a waste of life
