Noticeable and detested

“In few countries of the world are street children more noticeable, and more detested, than they are in Brazil. Public resistance to the presence of street children continues to grow, as the number of street children and the crimes associated with them increases. These children, who once may have been viewed as worthy of mercy and kindness, are now seen as a danger to society. They are looked at as future criminals who need to be locked away in order to protect public safety.”
