I’m glad to learn that Patricio Roitman has been released from jail. He was arrested a couple days ago after killing a Colombian criminal during a robbing/carjacking attempt.
Here’s a video of Patricio shooting in Tiro Federal Lomas de Zamora, my old shooting club.
With the Colombian drug cartels moving to Argentina, there’s now a large number of both dealers and hitmen from that country now operating in Argentina. Patricio’s shooting skills were mentioned in the local media, as if being a good shooter means a person is more prone to violence. No doubt his skill saved Roitman that day, but this should be a reminder to us all that everything you write, film, and eventually post online can and will be used again you if you ever go to trial after a shooting.
Folks, there's a lesson there: Everything from instagram photos to Facebook comments, don’t ever upload online or post anything that could be used to question your character in court.
Best of luck to him and his family during these tough times!
