I have zero farks for the girl. I have less for the idiot with the gun and him giving the girl an easy take.

Carjackings have tripled this year in DC. I'm coming around to making carjacking a capital offense, like horse thievery in the old days.

Why in the fark do people leave their cars running while they go inside a store? Shut it off. Go calmly inside the store and buy whatever shiat you need. Turn the car back on. Home you go.

What she did was 100% wrong. What the driver did was 100% idiotic.

I would never feel comfortable leaving my car running while I went for a quick errand... and my car is a manual.

I see you've never had a junker car....which when you shut it off there's a coin toss if it starts up again without a jump start. Or some carb spray stuff.

I finally had to give up my 1999 Toyota Carolla last year.  I never had an issue like that.  I've had some beaters.

I have never been concerned if they'll start, just if they'll make it to my final destination or home.

Starting has literally never been a problem for me outside of when my battery died and or my serpentine belt had issue, but both those issues are bigger than "car won't start" as one will cause the car to not work at all and the other could seize up the car altogether.

That's impossible. They took the shooter into custody so you know it's not a cop.

It's a good thing that 100 percent of car problems can be framed by your personal experience. You should get a pod cast or radio show about talking about cars.

Would you want a medal for shooting someone? Even if you had too?

Or do you just want gladiator rings where murder becomes the Sunday entertainment?
 
2021-07-17 3:26:30 PM  
Seriously though, there's only stupid people here. Leaving an unlocked running car outside at a gas station is pretty much the epitome of stupidity. Why not just give the car to the nearest bum while you're at it? Of course, stealing someone else's car is not the smartest thing you ever did, biatch (though I have this feeling it isn't the dumbest). However, shooting wildly at your OWN CAR BEING STOLEN is also kind of dumb because you thought shooting at your own car was a good idea??

This is a situation where a Three Stooges knocking their heads together might be the best course of action.

Fyck that noise.

Don't really feel for the girl here.  But you shooting at a car like that is a terrible idea unless there is a direct threat to those around them, and even then unless there's nothing behind the car there's no reason to shoot.

It's a car, it's not worth possibly hitting someone else on the sidewalk or driving on the road.

Call the cops.  Report it stolen.
 
2021-07-17 3:28:36 PM  
She deserved to get shot for stealing a car. He deserves to go to jail for shooting someone that didn't pose an immediate threat. Everybody wins!

My car is a manual* as well but there was a time that it had some starting issues so if I had to run in somewhere quick like a convenience store I would leave it running, lock it, and take the fob in with me.
(It also has tinted windows so it wasn't obvious if there was someone in it or not)
*I was not going to rely on some rando to actually help me push start it if there was an issue.

He's a dumbass for leaving the car running and unlocked.
The kid was a teenager...there's a bit in Law about "Attractive Nuisance" that makes YOU libel for having property, structures, etc that "attract" kids to your property. Even driving the car was something that could cause a kid harm....shooting at them just proves the case.
 
2021-07-17 3:33:52 PM  
Oh, I forgot to mention:
This is a bad shoot.
 
2021-07-17 3:34:10 PM  
The part where he was robbing the store was left out. Now that would've been a trifecta.

Rape is equivalent to car theft, got it
 
2021-07-17 3:37:45 PM  
There's a very limited set of circumstances where you're allowed to shoot someone. This wasn't even remotely close to that. Attempted murder of some kind.

Your car, in many ways, can be your very livelyhood. It gets you to your source of income, food, etc. For most people its not easily replaced. Defending that seems like a legitimate thing to do.
Besides, the thief has to learn somehow.

No... no it isn't. One is legal and hurts no one (sexy outfits) and the other is a felony.

Dont be thick. Im obviously equating that expecting to get your car stolen cause you left it running.
