Criminal Gets Shot Trying to Steal a Motorcycle in Brazil (NSFW)
Warning: This post contains a video of a man being shot which some may find disturbing.
Hat tip: David Paulin
The video begins with the driver navigating the streets and then, when stopped, a man shoves a gun into his face and demands he get off his bike. The driver gives up motorcycle and the thief takes it from the ground, only to be shot twice by an ununiformed police officer on the other side of the street. The whole scene is quick and surprising; those mingling around and driving by post-shooting seem to be displaying a relatively disturbing blasé attitude.
Reddit users have gone to great lengths to describe and translate the video. User imortality has provided a transcript of the entire scene, including the interaction between the driver and the attempted thief after he was shot:
Victim: Now you're gonna rob in hell you son of a bitch.
Robber (whining): I got shot!
Victim (pissed off): You go fuck yourself! You're the one pointing gun at other people's face!
Robber: Oh, I'm gonna die.
Victim: You sure will! You should have already! Son of a bitch.
Robber inaudible, apparently asks someone to get him something to drink. Victim: You're gonna drink in hell! You're gonna drink the devil!
The popular assumption online is that the thief will be fine and many are hailing the cop as a hero, saying the thief got exactly what he deserved. Others commenters just seem to chalk it up to another day in Brazil.
