In not familiar with this "dropped wallet" trick.

Interesting indeed, guy did a great job posing as a helpless victim, love the commentary by the narrator "I'm a helpless sheep who voted for Obama, and think guns are bad and only bad guys should have guns"

A good example of creating distraction and distance (increase the reactionary gap) and situational awareness on part of the "armed civilian."

He used the female as his "blind" that allowed him to go for his weapon while the robber was distracted.  Once that weapon was drawn he was committed to the stop.  Good situational awareness after the shooting.

I don't believe that he kicked the robber, however.  I believe that he was kicking the weapon away from the robber.  Note the position of the "armed citizen" before he holstered his weapon to make the call; he moved close the robber's weapon to prevent it from being grabbed by a bystander and also positioned his back to the wall, which still allowed him to be able to scan the immediate area.

The "armed citizen" may have been an off-duty LEO or possibly military.Regardless, it is obvious that he received training of some sort or another.

I agree about the other people in the area - totally in "Condition White" and unable to respond.

Looks like a good shoot to me!

I could have done without all the innuendos by the narrator, however.
The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Video not showing where I'm at right now. If it's the one I'm thinking I've seen, the man was said to be an off-duty cop and it took place somewhere in South America.
