São Paulo Governor Decorates Officer Who Killed Thief, Defying Military Police Guidelines

Armed man charges at mothers with kids until one mom whips out her concealed gun and fires away

A gunman's attempt to rob young children outside a Brazilian school was hindered after the mother of one child turned out to be an off-duty police officer. Then, her police training kicking in, she fired three shots into his stomach as parents fled with their children.

Sastre is seen on the CCTV footage from May 12 drawing her own pistol and firing multiple shots, dropping the man to the pavement.

We know first-hand that censorship against conservative news is real.

Ms Sastre, 42, pulled her service weapon out of her handbag as Elivelton Neves Moreira attempted to snatch a mother's bag.

For her quick thinking and skills, Sao Paulo Governor Márcio França met with her personally to honor her deed, despite the "regrettable outcome" that resulted in the suspect's death.

Corporal Sastre stopped shooting only because her gun jammed. Katia didn't know if he was going to shoot the children, the mums or the headteacher who was at the entrance'.

The National Transportation Safety Board said it was not investigating the Utah crash. In April, Tesla fell short of Model 3 production targets for the first quarter .

According to the Mirror, the mum of two has served as cop for 20 years.

The scenes unfolded as the school in Suzano held events to celebrate Mother's Day.

The officer, who has two decades of experience in the military police, said she wanted to shoot the man at a close range and neutralize him before he could hurt anyone. "Her courage and precision saved mothers and children, yesterday at the door of a school".

"She just thought about defending the parents, the children, herself and her daughter".

She kicked away his weapon and trained her gun on him before he was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.
