riotSAO PAULO, BRAZIL – Hundreds of protestors in Sao Paulo destroyed city property, lit buses on fire, even beat police men all because the city raised the fare for public transportation.

At least 25 people were arrested and dozens more went toe to toe with officers who finally got the crowd to disperse with tear gas.

The fare went from the U.S. equivalent of $2.75 to $2.95.

From the looks of it, we were expecting at least a five buck increase!
