Nice job, although I wish news sites would slow down the video on re-play so that we can better learn from it. It happens so fast.

:cheers2:

She did a fantastic job!!!

Shot him to the ground quickly, used cover, and moved the bad guy's gun away after he was down :thumbs2:

Looks like Fox spliced the video so we are missing the part between the bad guy approaching with a gun and the Mom moving into position.

That's what aggravates me. Let's see the whole video, not chopped up, intact and slowed down, so that her lightning-fast reaction is clearly visible. I tried looking for vids in other news sources, but mostly got much the same mish-mash.

No surprise here. According to the news she is a 20 year veteran of the police force, Kudos to her !

Viewed it early this morning on FaceBook. One woman commented she was aiming at his shoulder trying not to kill him. LOL I said NO! she was shooting center mass and acted like a police officer. I see a second shot as the car backs up. He's gone to that big jailhouse in the afterlife.

Fox video was not available but I got the sense of it. Brazilians are trying to get the right to own guns. Right now it's the cops and BG's only.

With it very difficult to legally own a gun. Its only the Bad Guys and the police that can have a gun. Its becoming an issue with the out of control killing in Brazil, hopefully this video will prompt a change in the laws.

If you have a bad guy robbing a group of moms and children near a school in broad daylight, something is seriously wrong with your society.

So here a bad guy decides to rob a group of moms and children, by approaching them with a drawn gun pointed at them. They all try and scatter, he focuses on the one or two women in the center of the group, a woman moving away uses the cover of the other people and his focus on the other women to draw her gun and she shoots him less then five feet away center mass.

She then moves for the cover of the car parked on the street. All just perfect tactics on her side. Bad guy falls to the ground with the gun in his hand.

But then her cover, the car, moves backwards exposing her to the bad guy on the ground still with his gun in his hand. I couldn't believe it, when that happened. But by this time he is dieing, and she is ready to shoot a few more times, but he may drop the gun by this time and she kicks it away.

Wow, it is just perfect on her part. Kudos.

I saw the original footage on FB, and had commented that she did three things wrong (posting did not say WHERE this took place or that she as law enforcement). With the additional info, I only have one reservation. Walking in front of a vehicle that was occupied and with the engine running I see as a tactial error. By that time, perp was on the ground and gun was on pavement oriented on the far side of the street. I think she should have moved down the sidewalk to the perp's feet oriented to the left to keep both the perp and the running car in line of sight. As it is, she nearly got run over when she moved in front of the car to retrieve perp's gun.

Narrated video on Active Self Protection gives a much clearer understanding of the situation.
