Fearless cop mum shoots armed robber at Mother's Day celebration in Brazil

An armed, off-duty Brazilian military police officer was hailed as a hero Sunday after surveillance footage showed how she foiled a robbery on a family near a school.

The suspect fired his weapon, a.38 caliber revolver, once into the crowd.

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

"Katia didn't know if he was going to react by shooting at the children, the mums or the headteacher who was at the school entrance". He was hit in the chest and leg as he tried to fight back.

"The first shot ricocheted and got lost".


Sastre is the mother of two girls and has worked on the police force for 20 years. On his second attempt at firing, the weapon locked. At the time of the incident, her kids and the other mothers were all she could think about.

Received three bullets of the robber was urgently hospitalized, but could not save - he died. The women were celebrating a Mother's Day event.

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.

Ms Sastre has since been honoured by the city's Governor, Marcio Franca, for her quick-thinking valour. "I just thought about defending mothers, children, my own life and my own daughter", Da Silva told Brazilian newspaper O Globo. He also took to social media to share her heroism online.

Katia sprang into action outside the school in Suzano, which is part of the Metropolitan region of Sao Paulo, on Saturday as it celebrated an event to mark Mother's Day which falls on May 13 in Brazil. "Her courage and precision saved mothers and children, yesterday at the door of a school", Márcio França wrote on Twitter.
