Moment would-be hitman fails to assassinate crime blogger who was killed just hours later 'by drugs gang who invented encrypted phones that are impossible for police to tap'
A shocking video has emerged showing the moment a hooded gunman fails to assassinate a killer-turned-crime-blogger who was killed just hours later 'by a drugs gang who invented encrypted phones that are impossible for police to tap.'
Martin Kok, 49, had been convicted and had served his sentence for two murders in his native Netherlands and since his release had focused on writing about the criminal underworld he used to inhabit.
His blog, Butterfly Crime, earned him powerful enemies among the biker gangs and Mexican crime cartels whose activities he exposed, but it also functioned as a business, generated sponsorship and advertising revenue, as reported by Vice.
On December 8 2016, newly released CCTV shows Kok avoided being killed after a man ran up to him and aimed a gun at him, and prepared to shoot him.
But for whatever reason the CCTV shows the assassin did not pull the trigger and ran off down the street, unbeknownst to Kok who was shot and killed just hours later.
