The fearless mother was honoured by the Governor for her quick-thinking courage.
The crowd was mostly made up of children and mothers, who have gathered in front of the private school the Jardim dos Ipês suburb of the city to celebrate Mother's Day. "Her courage and precision saved mothers and children yesterday at the door of a school", Franca wrote on Twitter. According to public security specialists, the decoration of Officer Sastre may send a misleading message to both the police force and to society.
Husband of officer Sastre, military police lieutenant André Alves said to Folha de Sao Paulo: "The suspect's gun fired once, but it is not known whether or not it was before Katia fired". As he was lying on the ground, she walked over and kicked the gun away before using her foot to place him in a face-down stance.
