A cop drops a baby in a shocking reaction after a robber corners him and his family in an open street. A surveillance video was able to capture the harrowing scene as a 3-month-old child was dropped hard on the ground — solid concrete — so the officer could shoot at the suspect. Live Leak News first shared the viral clip of the crime this Thursday, November 27, 2014, noting that the policeman was off-duty at the time of the incident.
The public knows that when a good cop drops a baby, there must be a reason for it. It appears that earlier this week in Sao Paulo, Brazil, a police officer was forced to let a baby fall to the ground outside of his home while walking with his daughter and father-in-law. A rogue robber had come upon the off-duty official’s home in Campinas, a city in Brazil. While carrying his 3-month-old child in his hand, the cop responds as the thief suddenly enters the area with a loaded machine gun at the ready.
In seconds, the surveillance video captures the moment as it turns starkly tense. The officer is forced to drop his baby on the hard ground, concrete, in order to save his family. He quickly takes out a gun of his own and opens fire at the would-be robber. The pair is locked in a brief fight. Using the moment as best as he can, the cop’s father-in-law grabs the 3-month-old baby and tries to run for cover, away from the flying bullets.
According to the Inquisitr News, the robber was shot at least three times by the police officer. Nonetheless, he is able to stumble away and make an escape from the violent scene of the attempted crime. It appears that the robber didn’t work alone; a fellow thief and accomplice was said to have had a getaway car ready for them just down the road. A full investigation was launched into the brutal ordeal, and some new details have come to light.
It appears that the robber in the “Cop drops baby” video was a convicted criminal that was using a machine gun equipped with a high-quality silencer to threaten his would-be victims before stealing from them. He had been charged with robbery and assault in the past. The cop who shot the man in self-defense fortunately made it out of the ordeal without any injuries. His 3-month-old baby and the other members of the family also miraculously escaped the situation safely.
The thief was found later that afternoon at a local hospital, having checked in using a fake name to avoid capture while still receiving medical attention for his bullet wounds. Police officers placed him under arrest after confirming he was the would-be assailant. His condition is critical at this time, and he is under police watch. Fortunately, the baby that had been dropped to the ground in the breathtaking video was said to have had a slightly bruised head, but thankfully nothing worse.
This cop drops baby incident in the video featured above is just one violent crime to make its way into U.S. headlines this Black Friday evening. Unfortunately, a 22-year-old was said to have killed both of his parents in a shooting at their home in Point Loma earlier today. Police are still investigating the recent crime, but officers have confirmed that the teen is the culprit of the fatal shooting. A motive for the shocking murders has not been discovered at this time.
