Video shooting: 1 meter away from the police and bandits shoot at each other, either you die or I die! On July 21, a close-up police clash of police and bandits broke out in a restaurant north of Guayaquil, Ecuador's largest city. The video shows an undercover police officer and his wife preparing to order takeout at the entrance of the restaurant when a robber suddenly breaks into the restaurant with a gun to commit a robbery. But plainclothes policemen immediately pulled out their guns to fight back, and the two shot each other at a distance of less than 1 meter, firing several shots in a row. In the end, it was the trained police who gained the upper hand, and the robber was shot in the lower abdomen and fell to the ground on the spot. Plainclothes policemen then immediately kicked aside the guns thrown by the robbers and called the police. The policeman was injured in the shoulder, and even blood was on the ground. This scene in Ecuador is a microcosm of the general deterioration of law and order in South American countries, so many South American immigrants take a caravan to the United States as illegal immigrants, of course, there are many people who worship the United States, but the deterioration of public security is also a key factor. In 2018, Ecuador introduced a security system using Chinese surveillance technology and established a network of cameras covering 24 provinces, including facial recognition technology, to reduce crime rates and strengthen emergency management. After the system was established, Ecuador's crime rate fell by 24 percent, the country's ranking of security in Latin America jumped from 16th to 4th, and the homicide rate per 100,000 people fell from the past 15 to an all-time low6 (1 in China). But surveillance systems are not a panacea, Ecuadorian society has a large number of guns and ammunition, and there are countless gangs of all sizes, and the country still has a long way to go to fight crime.
