South Africa armored car security ambushed on highway VID

All I could find was this:

According to that, the armoured car was carrying phones. None were stolen, the thieves ran away, neither driver nor passenger were injured. I’m not sure how accurate it is though.

I also found this whilst trying to find info on the attempted heist, some quick thinking by the guy filling up his car:

For some reason I thought this was the article , didn’t read it all and just read few sentences that state the guards were injured , doesn’t look like it’s it

The guy is an ex- South African Special Taskforce operator.

“Special Task Force is the elite police tactical unit of the South African Police Service. The Special Task Force handles high risk operations that fall beyond the scope of classic policing which require specialised skills including all hostage situations.”

This wasn’t his first rodeo.

I’ve never seen fuel under such pressure at the pump. That’s nuts.

A five second internet search produced this:

His name is Leo Prinsloo. He’s a tactical training expert & ex-South African Police Special Task Force member.

The Special Task Force (Taakmag) is an elite police tactical unit operating beyond the scope of the everyday police force. This unit was initially created to fight against black guerilla terrorists trying to infiltrate Rhodesia during the 1960s to 1970s. Over the last twenty years, the active Task Force has shrunk by more than 60% due to companies recruiting for PMCs and private security forces.

I highly recommend watching the full documentary on the old Special Task Force to see how they used to operate (Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3)

fucking knew it. even commented on the video that hes likely ex special forces

YES a PERFECT EXCHANGE for me to chime in!

Point One: So Free Markets CAPITALISM Police is better than BIG GOV?

Point Two: BIG GOV SOCIALISM is BETTER Management than GREEDY FOR PROFITS WallStreet Capitalism and a FIRST WORLD BIG GOV CAN DO BETTER than GREEDY FOR PROFITS FREE MARKETS CAPITALISM when it comes to things like MANAGING HEALTH CARE and POLICE?

also that video was exciting but I hope no one got hurt and lost their life because of $$$

I think we should take it easy on the jabroni riding shotgun. He’s young, clearly inexperienced, and frankly did a good job of not shitting or shooting himself, if that was his first time. Sure, the driver is Rambo 2.0, but that poor guy in the passenger seat wasn’t ready, and likely wasn’t trained well enough to be really useful.

He wasn’t in on it, isn’t a fucking moron, it’s just an average bloke who got caught up in some crazy shit.

Is that the guy that was too lazy to keep his kitten from going outside and getting killed in the freezing cold? What a shit human, no comparison to the commando.

He should’ve run over a couple of those assholes

I wanted to see him light a “strike anywhere” match off his front tooth.

he was swerving pretty good at the end, i wonder if he blew a tire?

The robbers throw puncture nails on the road, hence why he went for them on the left.

I don’t know why you guys are shitting on the passenger here, WTF could he do? If he rolls down the bulletproof window to return fire he opens them up to being shot or hitting a bystander. He did exactly what he should have done except maybe got on the phone quicker.

He was blocking them from coming alongside him.

If I had been in the passenger seat, the driver would have been shot after lowering the bulletproof window in order to stop gagging on the stench, due to the speed and ferocity with which I was shitting my pants.
