According to the first reports, the driver of the vehicle he intended to assault is a member of the Anti-Kidnapping Force.
A man who tried to assault a motorist was shot and killed in Colonia Ampliación Penitenciaría, near Venustiano Carranza.
The subject allegedly tried to rob the driver of a Mini Cooper, when he waited for the green light of the traffic light, at the junction of Eduardo Molina and Hero de Nacozari, but the driver confronted him with bullets and shot him dead.
According to the first reports, the driver of the vehicle, registration XX-XX-XX of the State of Mexico, noticed that the subject approached with a weapon to assault him, so he shot him in the face.
The shooting sparked an intense police mobilization of elements of the Ministry of Public Safety and Investigative Police of the Attorney General's Office.
An ambulance from the Mexican Red Cross arrived to check if the thug had vital signs, but he had already died and his body was lying on the side of the car.
What i've always loved and respected about Mexico (and much of the rest of the world) is the honest portrayal of death. In the USA, everything is sanitized to the point people have never seen a dead body, but they've seen a million fake deaths on television and movies giving them a false illusion of immortality.
However, had the driver of the Mini Cooper been a regular citizen who took the same defensive action he/she would have been arrested. The concept of self defense, even in your own home, is very much frowned upon in MX. This mindset stems from the Mexican government’s abohrrence of an armed citizenry.
