Hostage drama on Long Street, Cape Town

We have seen movies where there are hostages taken and special police units brought in to free the hostages and get the bad guys but somehow that feels like inadequate preparation for a video of a real-life hostage drama taking place in our own cities. Here is a scary video that was just posted on Zoopy:

Not like the movies at all. The Zoopy guys were there and blogged about it.

But when you’re standing in a cloud of gun powder, it all becomes very real.
