  1. I read an the original story before they made investigations. It said that cjng members were evading capture in the helicopter and they shot bn it down

  2. So can we assume it was intentionally motivated?

  3. 11:03 the gun did not got itself out of the holster, took aim and shot at the helicopter, which did not warn it was occupied by peepol!
    It is usually the helicopters shooting down on suspect luxury cars killing the suspected drug trafficking narco-sicarios husband and wife and their children. This pendejo needs to be euthanized ASAP.

  4. Private security companies teaching "shoot to kill tactics" should be made responsible, their trainees are too expensive, and when it comes to answering for their crimes or stupidity IF FOUND, they get defense funding from the government.
    Now #1 question is who the fack certified this motherfacker for his job and his weapon?
