The Miami FBI Shootout

In 1986, a shootout took place in Miami, Florida between FBI agents and two bank robbers. Despite outnumbering the bank robbers, the FBI agents were seriously outgunned and suffered massive casualties. Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this infamous 1986 Miami FBI shootout. Two agents lost their lives and five others were wounded. In the aftermath of the shooting, officials had to examine what went wrong. The conclusion was that the agents, most of them carrying .38 caliber revolvers, were no match for the robbers, one who fired a large number of shots from a semi-automatic rifle. The shootout was a major factor in law enforcement officials around the country switching to more powerful weapons and more powerful cartridges.
