Automatic Firepower

The previous post showed a robbery carried out using machetes. Dangerous as machetes are, the targets handled the situation well by showing guts and keeping in constant motion. That made it harder for the robbers to make clean swings with their machetes.

This next clip showcases decidedly more high tech weaponry. Known as the North Hollywood Robbery of 1997, this incident is said to be the most dramatic robbery gun fight ever captured on film. Two robbers armed with AK-47 machine guns, armor piercing bullets and body armor took on 300 police officers armed with Glocks and shotguns.

This is an example of the effectiveness of automatic weapons and the leverage they provide. The use of armor piercing bullets is particularly nasty; these bullets go right through cars, engine blocks and concrete walls.
