An off-duty officer is being hailed as a hero after surveillance video shows her shooting a would-be armed robber at a Mother's Day event near a school. She is also married to a police lieutenant.
Sastre was attending the event with her daughter when the gunman approached.
We know first-hand that censorship against conservative news is real.
CCTV shows the congregation, consisting of mainly children and women, beginning to flee before military police officer, Katia da Silva Sastre, 42, pulls out her own weapon and fires three shots.
Ms Sastre has since been honoured by the city's Governor, Marcio Franca, for her quick-thinking valour.
Soros-backed foundation leaving Hungary
Rights groups in Hungary and overseas have denounced the proposals as a way of cracking down on groups critical of the government. The Open Society Foundations have a long legacy in Hungary, where Soros was born and where he began his philanthropy in Europe.
The man was actually able to get off a shot that bounced harmlessly off the ground before he crumpled into a heap. Many praised the woman for her actions, which saved the lives of the group of mothers and children who had been standing in front of the school.
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.
In dramatic scenes outside a school in Sao Paulo an armed robber's attempt to hold up mothers outside a school backfired lethally when a fearless off-duty cop emerged from the frightened crowd and gunned him down. According to public security specialists, the decoration of Officer Sastre may send a misleading message to both the police force and to society. In the panic that enveloped the school, she said that her training in the corporation was able to kick in just in time to prevent the suspect from harming anyone.
"I went earlier to the 4th BAEP in the east of Sao Paulo to honor a very special mother: Corporal Katia Sastre".
