NBC's initial reports today about the Brazilian family bringing Sean Goldman to his father, David Goldman, show Sean Goldman paraded through the streets of Rio de Janerio through hordes of pushing and shoving people, including paparazzi. This despicable conduct occurred without regard to Sean's well-being and despite offers from the US consulate to have Sean brought to a private back entrance to avoid any distress for him. What a cruelty the supposedly loving grandmother and stepfather showed to Sean.
Apparently a television helicopter followed the Goldmans when they left the consulate for the airport. David and Sean Goldman left Brazil almost immediately after the turnover. Forbes Magazine coverage of Sean and David Goldman's arrival back in the U.S. is here.
