    Police officer shoots armed robbers to death while holding baby

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/brazil-...-holding-baby/

    An off-duty military police officer's trip to the pharmacy with his family turned into a deadly shootout in Brazil over the weekend.

    Sgt. Rafael Souza went to buy medicine with his wife and young son late Saturday afternoon when two armed, hooded men stormed the business outside Sao Paulo, Britain's Independent newspaper reported, citing a Brazilian radio station.

    One of the men pointed a gun at Souza, who drew his own weapon, the Independent reported.

    Surveillance video shows Souza holding his son with one arm and his gun with the other.

    Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.

    Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.
    Sure he didn't want his child in danger, but he didn't have a choice.

    Police in Brazil do not play games ...
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    If this was in the USA, people would be raising holy hell about child endangerment and the cop would probably be suspended.

    There's no mention (at least in the CBS repeat of a quoted-by-someone-else's report of a radio program's story) of the robbers firing back.
