Trigger Happy - The Story of Mariano Witis and Dario Riquelme

Mariano stopped to chat with a friend when Dario took him as a hostage. They left in the car, but were chased by the police. They were shot in the back by a police officer. Although the officer was convicted and after several appeals given a sentence of 15 years, he only served 4 years and 9 months. He received a conditional early release. He was given house arrest and the authorization to work for a private security company.
