Justin Ferrari saved a mother and kids from gunfire
While some American citizens are protesting the brutalities and lethal force used by agressive police officers in recent months, cops out there are still trying to maintain orderly communities and protect people from each other. Police forces were created to protect property and life, and that’s still a much needed service despite the fact that some men and women who enter the police force are not rightly trained or make severe, sometimes deadly errors in their career. There should be more accountability for cops who abuse their power, but it’s hard to deny that they don’t risk their lives to ensure the safety of others.
One cop was just doing his duty when he braved gunfire to save a woman and her children from a mad man who was hell bent on ending their lives. His body-cam, a device used to record police activities for their safety as well as the safety of citizens, captured the entire scene, and that policeman and his fellow officers are being hailed as heroes.
Who knows what could have happened if these officers failed to subdue the suspect.
Domestic violence was the cause of this horrific, nearly deadly incident. This particular type of violence is incredibly pervasive since it usually occurs behind closed doors. But 2 million injuries and 1,300 deaths are attributed to domestic violence incidents every year, which is a frightening statistic.
Victoria Rosado of Deltona, Florida became another victim of domestic violence when she tried to separate from her husband, Emanuel. The pair was already in the process of divorcing and living apart, but he showed up at the family home where their three children lived and began “acting crazy.” The children ranged in age from two to seven years old.
Emanuel argued relentlessly with his estranged wife in front of their kids. She hid in the bedroom and called 911 when he repeatedly tried to enter the room. After some minutes on the phone with 911 operators, Victoria screamed and the line went dead. Responding officers heard Emanuel screaming at his wife, “You’re going to die tonight!” and he shot her in the upper thigh with his 9mm handgun. Officers began shooting at the suspect when he spotted them outside and shot at them twice.
