I'd really like to know how that resolved. Seems like they were blocked in, so I assume the driver went out to carry the attack to the robbers.

Both of them stayed pretty cool didn’t they?

The white guy was driving. Clearly he’s racist.

Not sure, I would have stepped outside. Those shots were aimed at the drivers head.

I thought about that. I also wonder why they didn't radio for help, although it looked like the passenger eventually got his cell phone out to do so.

But what are the two options for them?

A: Wait for the bullet proof glass to finally fail and get shot like a sitting duck, or

B: Get out, expose yourself more to fire, but have the ability to fight back, to take the fight to the enemy.

Scary times either way.

If the hit on the passenger window came from that guy standing on the side of the road that's some seriously good shooting ability. They could've had explosives to open the vehicle after it was stopped. Waiting to find out isn't what I'd call a safe option.
