Russian Disarms And Shoots Would-Be Robber At Olympic Torch Relay In Rio

Top Golfers Arent Playing In Rio

Earlier this evening a Russian Diplomat disarmed and shot a man to death who was trying to rob him as he waited in traffic. The fact that the assailant was a Russian who was also trained in jiu-jitsu honestly isn’t that surprising to me.

The Olympic Torch Relay had just ended and the Russian, his wife, and daughter were stuck on a main thoroughfare between downtown Rio and the Olympic village.

According to police, one suspect broke the driver’s window with the gun and the vice-consul reacted. The diplomat, who is trained in jiu-jitsu, took the criminal gun and shot him.

What a way to start the Olympics off. Rest assured, we’re going to be hearing about shit like this for the next month as the games progress. Law enforcement in Rio on strike, deadly mosquitoes, poop water, and now random dudes on the street trying to rob you blind. You name something awful, Rio has it in spades.

I’m assuming the Russian who murked this robber was super rich. And when I think super rich in Russia I just automatically assume you pay money to hunt poor people for fun. Like if you’re wealthy in mother Russia, “The Most Dangerous Game” is laughable compared to the shit you do in your spare time on your personal property. Moral of the story here is to never fuck with Russians. And to never schedule Olympic games in third world countries.
