              Good job! Judge, jury, and executioner. Much more cost effective than keeping him in prison for God knows how long.

                    Brazil seems to have a few of these incidents. I remember 1 back in the early 2000s where an unstable man threatened patrons on a public bus then the police arrived. He was going to surrender peacefully if he detected no hostility but as he was walking off the bus he saw some positioned police with guns..? So he grabbed a middle aged woman as he was about to exit. She was horrified and she started panicking and the police went in but not before he could stab her. Extremely sad video. It was on a documentary that I watched. I was angry first then very sad immediately afterwards because it looked like this was going to end without any casualties then suddenly 😠 edit btw forgot to mention this was in Sao Paulo

                    good job brasil poicel ! but i think this is a common thing in brasil. not sure why these media talking about this. if they should be talk about more and more and putting more pressure on brasil president. with the jungle fire situation . it funny how they only depend on local news to tell us about it....as we cant get that stuff our self ( its called online ) i think this media is getting us distracted on the real issues in hand.

                                The police saved several lives that were at risk in that bus, congratulations to the police, this is how they should treat those who undermine the good citizen's life.

                                                seems the police actually hit what there shooting at over there where as here in the U.S we have to wait for the suspect to shoot themselves first.

                                                    Let's put it in perspective.
                                                    The police not only killed the criminal, they saved more than 30 people on that bus.
                                                    Enough is enough. The gloves are off. Rio de Janeiro is infested by criminals that make the lives of the common citizen a daily nightmare. Enough.

Of course when he compared Brazil to the US, he made no mention of economics of the sort but made the comparison of the US to Brazil out of the differences and similarities both countries have when it comes to gun ownership, demographics, Gangs, etc.
