    Brazil: Mom takes down armed robber at Mothers Day event

    Off-duty police officer, mom hailed as hero for taking out would-be robber at Mother's Day event near school @ Fox News, 14 May 2018.

    Video clip showing the self-defense: click.

    She was at the celebration with her own daughter and lots of other parents and children. The armed robber was halted.

    Excerpt:

    An armed, off-duty Brazilian military police officer ... was standing near a group of women and children outside a Sao Paulo private school when the gunman, identified as 21-year-old Elivelton Neves Moreira, attempted to rob them at gunpoint. The women were celebrating a Motherís Day event.

    Little did the gunman know, Sastre was carrying a pistol of her own ...

    Kudos to "momma bear." Doing what she needed to do, to save life and limb of innocents.


    If only folks would fully appreciate what being well-armed and prepared could mean to their own lives, if they had the ability to stop such threats of murder in their tracks.

    Iíve watched the video several times and wonder if she carried with no round chambered ( it appeared to me, she had to quickly rack her slide!). What say you.

    Anyway I love a story with a HAPPY ENDING!

    I like how she took cover behind that car and the driver backed it away exposing her. Then when she goes to get the gun away from the guy on the ground her comes that lady in the car again. That driver was a secondary threat.

    I saw the same thing. Who pulls cover away from the good guy? But I can make a few guesses. Maybe I should not be so harsh. Maybe it was a mom in the car who already had her kids in the car with her, and she did not want a stray bullet hitting them.

    And the posts need to be in Portuguese since it was in Brazil. She was an off duty cop too, I’d say most people in Brazil who are not criminals don’t have as much right to keep and bare arms as Cop Mom or the dirtbag she ventilated.
