    5 armed thugs vs 1 cop on a bus full of passengers

    Here is a blog post from Fer Fal who lives in Argentina. He summarizes two very interesting stories that were recently in the news down there. Both stories have some great information. Argentina was once a prosperous country until their economy collapsed in 2001. Crime has taken over and it appears to be quite a dangerous place. Though, as Fer Fal often says, "It's no Mad Max".

    English is Fer Fal's second language, so please bear with him.

    Interesting well written accounts with some good points made.

    Wow, good for that Officer!
    Too bad there wasn't a "BusCam" inside to record the action.

    I agree with Guantes that it was well written. Brings out fact that there are times the only respondence one can have is violence. Make it hot enough BGs want to be somewhere else and no longer want to play.

    Happy to share. Fer Fal has lived through a lot down there and he does everything he can to teach others from his experiences. He studied in the US for several years, so he speaks English pretty fluently. He has an incredible amount of great info on guns, knives, crime prevention and survival.

    This article is by far my favorite: SURVIVING IN ARGENTINA: Thoughts on Urban Survival (2005)

    Nothing like a hail of gunfire to alter one's attitude.

    The best defense is a good offense.

    Good info. Thanks. The LEO on the bus performed admirably. Also, the second story was fascinating and demonstrates fabulous trigger control, especially since the driver was actually an innocent hostage. Very nice work by the LEO's in both situations!

    That driver must have had a pile in his shorts in that 2nd incident.
