Murky waters surround the U.S. Olympic swimmers as reports show that Brazilian authorities held Jimmy Feigen “hostage” unless he gave them $50,000. Add this to the evidence that the police fabricated the story that the four American swimmers vandalized and destroyed the bathroom at the gas station where they were robbed at gun point and the entire story smells like a rat.
Feigen was pulled from the plane as he was trying to return home and held by the Brazilian authorities until he eventually paid $10,800 to gain his freedom. Nothing in the story adds up, except the pile of money the police swindled out of Feigen.
The story is a complete fairy-tale made up by the police. Feigen has reported that they never entered the bathroom at the gas station and USA Today has debunked the report that there was ever any damage.
Police transcripts state that none of the swimmers were held at gun-point, but the four Americans content they were robbed. The “Brazilian authorities maintain the stance that having your money taken at gunpoint in Brazil is not robbery. It is instead simply a form of negotiating.”
What do they call holding an American hostage for $50,000?

Fuk this privileged thug!! You act like a clown aboard then get treated like. Clown . Stupid gringo
Al got in his privileged$#%&!@*! ” he lied”
Typical third world country.
Why do these athletes not get on the first plane out of these foreign countries once their thru doing “their thing”? They know these countries hate Americans & will take all they can get from them, anyway they can
Where did you go to School or did you not see the Shoreline, the Pools Water Color, the Trash on the Beach and the Living conditions of Athletes . this would be called a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY under most conditions
Angel Toro try watching the USA Report before you stick your FOOT in your mouth, it shows that the Restroom was locked so how did the Athletes tare off the soap dispenser if the door is locked – cute to say the least, the only Damage was a Poster – Posters don’t cost $ 11,800 dollars or do you think we should stick a GUN in your face an Demand money from you then arrest you after you pay BLOOD MONEY SORT of a Double Standard
I think they are just a corrupt country and we are getting that way ourselves. They got 11,500 from one and they are going to try and get more, I don’t think I’d go back over there!!
You should tell them to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine !!!
I think there may be truth to Olympians hold-up.
