A new video is going viral this week, and it’s showing exactly why police officers are so amazing.
Dashcam footage shows a South African police officer get shot in the back at point blank range as he writes a ticket, and then get right back to doing his job. According to Breitbart, Officer Nizaam Alexander was conducting a routine traffic stop when he was approached from behind by a gunman.
Though the gun initially jammed, the shooter was eventually fire a bullet at Alexander’s back, which was thankfully covered with a bulletproof vest. The officer returned fire at the suspect, who was unfortunately able to escape.
Afterwards, Alexander returned to writing a ticket, refusing to receive treatment until he did so. He has since been awarded for his “professionalism and dedication to duty” by the City of Cape Town’s traffic services.
