Several UFC employees were victims of armed robbery in Brazil

  Several UFC employees were victims of armed robbery in Brazil The UFC has traveled to Rio de Janeiro for its latest event this weekend, and there was an unfortunate incident involving several of the company’s employees in Brazil Thursday night. UFC president Dana White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that a number of UFC staff members were victims of an armed robbery on Thursday. While several employees lost personal items such as phones, wallets and passports, there were no injuries reported. Police are in the process of reviewing security footage from where the incident took place. The official weigh-ins for UFC 224 were scheduled for Friday morning, and Okamoto reports that there have been no indications any of the robbery victims were fighters. Between Thursday night’s incident and the mayhem that occurred with Conor McGregor last month, White and the UFC have had to deal with a lot of drama — the bad kind — in recent weeks.

That's when 42-year-old Katia Sastre decided to act. The off-duty police officer pulled out her own gun and fired at the robber three times, hitting him in the chest and leg.

He fell to the ground but pointed his weapon at Sastre. According to the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, he fired at least one bullet before his gun jammed. “The first shot ricocheted off something,” Sastre's husband, Andre Alves, told the paper. “On his second attempt to fire, his weapon jammed. Thankfully she was faster than he was, because when a thug discovers he’s being confronted by a police officer, he shoots to kill.”

This mom stepped in to stop him . 05/14/2018 - 09:19. The governor of Sao Paulo with Katia Sastre, who shot and killed a gunman trying to rob a group of families. Detroit police said Sanchez Quinn, 29, tried to rob two men at gunpoint outside a supermarket in Detroit on Sunday evening.

The whole scene was caught on the school's video security system.

Sastre was with her 7-year-old at a school in Suzano, a city near São Paulo. They were waiting for a Mother's Day party to begin, according to Newsweek.

The gunman, 21-year-old Eliventon Neves Moreira, was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Sao Paulo Gov. Márcio França called that outcome “sad and regrettable.” “It is not ideal that the suspect died. We would have preferred this had not happened,” he told reporters. “But it is a warning to those who take up a gun that they could be killed because our security professionals are well trained to protect the public.”

Platini says 1998 World Cup draw 'trickery' helped France

  Platini says 1998 World Cup draw 'trickery' helped France France soccer great Michel Platini insists "a little trickery" in the 1998 World Cup draw ensured his home country would avoid playing Brazil until the final which it won in Paris.Not so, according to Sepp Blatter, who as FIFA's then CEO-like general secretary conducted the draw in Marseille in December 1997.Almost 20 years after France hosted and won the World Cup, the two men who organized it recalled very differently Friday if Les Bleus were helped by a fixed draw to dodge playing defending champion Brazil for as long as possible."When we organized the calendar, we did a little trickery," Platini, who led the French organizing committee for several years, told radio station

Sao Paulo was once one of the most violent cities in the world. But the area has seen a dramatic drop in crime over the past decade. The homicide rate has declined from a high of 52.5 per 100,000 in 1999 to 6.1 per 100,000 today, about five times lower than the national average, according to the World Economic Forum.

Experts attribute that decline to the drop in unemployment of young men and tight control over who has access to guns and alcohol. Researchers also point to the fact that one gang, known as the PCC, has managed to take over much of the city. “The PCC ... imposed its own brand of criminal order, a kind of Pax Mafiosa,” according to the WEF.

Alves told reporters that his wife has been in the police force for 20 years. She is doing well, he said.

“She is calm, knowing that she acted correctly,” he said. “Everything ended fine. It would have been a greater risk if the suspect had found out she was a cop first.
