Local Brazilians have a dire warning for tourists planning to visit Rio, Brazil for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

People at the Rio airport are being greeted with signs that read, “Welcome to hell. Police and firefighters don’t get paid, whoever comes to Rio de Janeiro will not be safe.” (SLIDESHOW: Forget About Zika, This Stunning Woman Is The Only Reason You Need To Go To The Olympics)

Another message painted onto a highway claims that there aren’t functioning hospitals in Rio.

Just another crazy example of why some American athletes are debating whether or not to stay home. Might be best to just call this one off, especially if you’re an NBA player with millions of dollars on the line.
