Moms are truly amazing, y’all. Their courage, quick thinking in sticky situations, and impressive multitasking abilities can get their families out of all sorts of binds. They’re professionals at keeping their cool under mountains of pressure.
One California mom proved just that over the weekend when her family was approached by an armed stranger impersonating a police officer. She immediately knew something was wrong and used a particularly unusual, albeit effective tactic to fend off the gunman. According to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, it was those “momma bear instincts” that expertly de-escalated the situation and led to the man’s arrest.
It all started when the woman’s family of six decided to stop for some carne asada tacos Sunday after spending the day at a local water park. The family picked up their meal from a taco truck and decided to eat in their minivan, which was parked near the truck…
All of a sudden, a stranger approached their van.
Don’t Look Now, But…
Luckily, the bad guy didn’t get away.
People are beyond impressed by the woman’s quick thinking.
