The video of the thief getting shot while stealing a bike in Sao Paulo is all over the web and everyone let their comments. The video is tense and fortunately for the victim, nothing else happened to him.
It’s easy to figure out online that everyone wanted the thief dead, but he is alive and well.. On the video below, you can see the unedited version with the thief moving on the ground surrounded by police and paramedics.
I won’t even get in the merit that this happens every day in Brazil and most time the thieves shoot first and then take their steal. But yes, that’s what happens most times.
But the topic here is different this time. It’s crazy how the internet loves stuff like that. The video has spread quick because of its strong images and there millions of copies of the video all over. The unfortunate event has become a sensation. A sad sensation, but that’s how things go online.
A few quick facts:
– The channel of the guy that got robbed has been getting more and more views. He uploaded the video but later removed. It was too late someone had already copied it. After that, he went to the tv, to give interviews and all.
– Gringo’s have no clue about how things are in Brazil: gringos, this happens everyday, everywhere. Most times the thieves get away, and the victim gets shot!
