postheadericon *WATCH* Two Armed Robbers Dead After Father, While Holding Infant Son, Shoots After Having Gun Pointed At Him

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL — An off-duty police officer in Brazil happened to be inside a pharmacy when two armed robbers came in looking to score big.

Both of those robbers, aged 24 and 22, didn’t leave the pharmacy alive.

The officer, identified as Sgt. Rafael Souza, wasted no time with his response, even while holding his child.

Inside Edition reports;

In the footage, Souza is seen holding his son with one arm and pointing a gun with his opposite hand.

He shoots one man as the suspect runs around a floor display. He runs and fires again, then disappears out of the frame.

The cop’s wife is seen cowering behind another merchandise display, then stretching out her arms toward her husband, who hands off the baby and continues chasing the suspects.

Watch the surveillance video below:

Our friends at TTAG asked their readers a question based on the video: What would you do with your kid(s) during a self-defense gun use?

Well, it’s hard to say, and I imagine that this officer acted the best he could in the given situation. This likely began very quickly, and who’s to say setting the child down first would have been a good or bad decision. If there’s no apparent place to put the child in a split second, it seems that this is the next best option.

What are your thoughts? Where would your kids go if you found yourself in a similar situation? Chime in below.

postheadericon Mr. Robot: Now we know where Tyrell was hiding

Since nothing is what is seems, it’s hard to be sure who was really behind the attacks shown in the series. The world still believes fsociety was responsible (and they themselves do too, to an extent), but the truth is that there is a group in the shadows that is pulling all the strings.

postheadericon Woman Shoots Teen In Head After He And Others Breaks Into Her Home

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A teenager who broke into a woman’s house was shot in the head by that woman, and is now in critical condition but expected to survive.

The incident played out as follows, and other teens are thought to have been involved;

The woman said she was home alone when she heard someone breaking into her home. A relative told Eyewitness News reporter Pooja Lodhia that the teens were hiding behind the victim’s couch when one of them jumped up. That’s when she shot the suspect in the head.

What these teens were up to is anyone’s guess, but they sure did pick the wrong house to enter uninvited.

As for the friends of the shot teen, let’s hope that they are charged with whatever crimes are coming their way. From the article, it is unclear whether the others involved were caught or if they made a run for it after losing a member of their thug team.

Armed at home? It’s always a smart thing. Your firearm should never be too far away and ideally, if you’re awake, should be on your person. Things can happen in an instant, and there’s no telling how quickly you’ll need to access your firearm.

postheadericon Man Who Stopped Rape With Firearm Talks About Incident *WATCH*

AUSTIN, TX — When Josh Williams goes jogging in Austin’s Hike-and-Bike Trail, he makes sure to have at least three things, according to KVUE:

His cellphone, a flashlight, and his gun.

Early one morning in September, Williams heard screams while on his route.

When he investigated, he discovered a woman being sexually assaulted.

“I came up, pulled my gun and told him to get off of her,” he said according to KVUE. “Get on your knees and show me your hands.”

Instead, the attacker bolted. However, that attacker, later identified as 22-year-old Richard McEachern, was later caught by authorities thanks to the description of the man given by Williams and the woman who he attacked.

And for those of you who are curious, Williams was carrying a GLOCK 43 and using a Crossbreed Holster.

Take a look at what Williams said in reflection of the incident in an interview with KVUE:

postheadericon Busy Browsers attract Black Friday Burglars

Just as in past decades when cash drawers and bank vaults were targeted for theft, today’s e-shops and online banks have fallen under the scope of cybercriminals. Their “digital-focus” is just an evolutionary step beyond robbing stagecoaches in the Wild West, and banks in the 20th century.
