Blaming the favelas...again

So the state police intend to occupy three favelas near Copacabana Beach during this weekend's Rolling Stones concert, Reuters reports.

This will only be seen as a provocation. After all, huge celebrations/concerts on Copacabana Beach have been an annual tradition for new year's eve for several years now, and have been largely peaceful affairs. Why blame the favelas for violence that hasn't happened?
