Your feel-good video of the day: Armed mom stops robber

A gunman approaches a group of moms picking up their kids from a private school in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

But he didn’t figure on one of the moms being an off-duty military police officer — 42-year-old Katia da Silva Sastre.

Swift as lightning, she shoots the punk who falls to the ground.

The gunman, Elivelton Neves Moreira, 21, was shot three times and died in the hospital, thereby saving taxpayers the expense of a trial and prison.

  4. Dr Eowyn, I tried to repost at least 2 of your items on Facebook and got back messages from Facebook saying that the owner had removed the posts and they could not be commented on.

    Is Facebook censoring you?
    Also, more of my comments to you have been effectively censored by telling me “duplicate comment detected”, when they weren’t!

    • For sure Facebook is censoring FOTM. A reader said she got a FB message asking her if a FOTM post contained “hate message”.

      As for why you’re getting “duplicate comment detected,” I get that when I think my comment didn’t go through, so I try to post the same comment again. Sometimes WordPress is slow — my guess.

  5. Yea team, way to go!

    When I rolled the video here in BC, Canada, I got a warning that it had images that may disturb some people. Why? What’s disturbing about taking down some fool who thought he could steal children and get rewarded for releasing them after ransom. What? Oh, I forgot: liberal progressive SYMPATHIES!

    Barf, barf: look up the definitive definition of ‘sympathy’ and see why I wrote as I did.

    • I got the same message and I thought to myself…what’s offensive about watching one skilled woman protect and defend other women and children by getting rid of the vermin attacking them. How is that offensive. Hell, I could watch that all day long!

  9. She handled it perfectly. He was down, she kicked the gun away until she could remove it and guarded him for the cops. I see nothing to fault here at all. Once someone makes the decision to stick a gun in someone’s face all bets are off as far as I’m concerned.

    We have a duty to protect ourselves and others. She deserves an award. Unfortunately my guess is that they’ll harass her interminably.

  12. Why is it, lophatt, that we are allowed a SINGLE shot in defense? After that we are in jeopardy of being cited as using ‘excessive force’, which is surely an oxymoron in that such a pre-judgement cannot foresee every outcome, nor its resolution. Some adrenalin-spiked maniacs will come at us after taking 3 rounds, believe me, especially if one has fired at non-lethal points out of kindness [?]. Oy gewalht, Weh ist mir!

    • Where is it that you only get one shot? I have never heard of this.

    • I’m not sure Joseph. I don’t know of anything that limits a response to one round. You are correct to assume that an jerk prosecutor might try to make that sort of case. At least where I’m at there’s nothing I’m aware of about on shot.

      The cops are now taught to basically empty their magazines. I’m not a proponent of that either. They were always supposed to use the minimum force necessary to eliminate the threat. That has been expanded now, at least in training, to everybody unloads their magazines at the word “gun”.

      The truth is that once someone aims a gun at you all bets are off. If they are lucky enough to confront someone with a cool head and compassion, they may only get shot until they submit. I saw a video once of a deputy (probably in the nineties), who was confronted by a suspect with a knife. The guy kept advancing and he kept telling him to stop and drop the knife.

      He didn’t do it and, eventually, he shot him in the leg. That ended the whole thing and he lived. It was exactly the right thing to do in that situation. Every situation is different. I do not believe it true that “training just takes over”. If it does you’ll have a bad outcome.

  13. Excellent job mom, you saved a family some serious heartbreak from the way he was trying to grab a child. I shiver at the thought.
    For the driver of the red car that sped away. Nice job chicken crap, it could have been your child she saved.

    • Glenn47 . . . . The gal from the red car is just like 97.% of those who could do something, but they don’t . . . . They just don’t want to get involved! I wonder how she would feel if it was her child that was in danger of being snatched, but no one came to help?

  17. Lather, rinse, repeat… watch, rewind, re-watch. I think a dozen times for me. Does that make me a bad man for enjoying seeing him drop onto his rear? The way his legs went stiff, it’s as if she either got his spinal cord or his heart, which paralyzed him instantly.

    Wonder why the heck he went after school kids and their mothers? Was he stupid, didn’t care, or maybe on drugs? Maybe after lunch money… bully. Last time he’ll do that.

    He appeared at the 10 second mark, she steps into the frame at the 14 second mark. At the 16 second mark she moves in and he sees her, pointing his gun at her, and at the 17 second mark she shoots him. At the 18 second mark he’s on the ground trying to shoot her, but it’s all over, and he’s dying.

    So everything happened within 10 seconds. Lesson to us: be prepared. Lesson to would be armed robbers: your end comes quickly; repent, give your heart to Jesus, and go straight NOW, because they who live by the sword will die by the sword.

  21. When I teach my kids in the classroom a new skill or technique, I am the expert in the classroom…and I teach them by “modeling” the skill and technique so they know what to do when they execute their own project, as I expect them to do. This excellent woman modeled the skills and technique needed to take down an armed man who was attempting to prey upon her child and the children of others…..This video of this “modeling lesson” is priceless. It is instructional. I hope it sends thousands of women to the gun range to practice. I hope it sends thousands of 2nd Ammendment-supporting men & women to the ballot box during mid-terms. Don’t expect Nancy Pelosi to save your child from a predator (dah!). Arm up. Defend your second amendment rights….and then defend your OWN child/your own family/ your own home b/c NO DEMORAT will do it for you!

  22. As a CCW holder, the drill is to shoot to “stop the threat”. Not to kill. Not to wound. To stop the threat. If it takes one shot or fifteen, so be it. Then call your lawyer.

    • “Not to wound”?

      The perp was armed and pointed his gun at moms with little kids. How else should the off-duty military police officer stop him?

      We also don’t really know from the short video what happened after she fired the first shot, or how the perp died.

    • Never point your gun at something you don’t intend to shoot./destroy.

      My firearm training tells me to shoot at center mass to stop the threat. It didn’t include any diagrams of how to avoid shooting major organs, thereby avoiding killing someone.

      How was this woman to know that if she managed to only wound this perp that he wouldn’t reach for another firearm located on his body?

      If YOU point a firearm at women and children YOU take the risk with your own life. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
