LINGUISTICS & CULTURE

Well, I suppose similarily-sized cities in the US are not strangers to police corruption (or mad driving), either. But I don't doubt that brasil is unlike the US in this as well as other matters.
I was just wondering how the average brasilian would feel about american (or otherwise) immigrants misbehaving in their country. Some folks I know here think it's quite terrible that people should be held and/or deported for 'minor' things like drunk driving. My feeling is that anybody should be free to come here, but they had better behave appropriately. As immigrants they should if anything toe the line more closely than usual.
If I were in another country I wouldn't dream of acting in a way that might endanger my hosts - not that I act in such a way here - and I would go out of my way to be more polite than usual. In fairness to brasilians that I observe here, the majority comport themselves in that manner. A minority seem to think they can do as they please. Human nature in action, I guess.
