Experts note cutbacks in law enforcement funding are a contributing factor, since police agencies are not able to do as much proactive patrolling.

I can only find to 2016, but I know my city's police budget went up, and they lying liars blame funding cuts as the reason why they don't respond to calls.

Minneapolis car-jackers have been bleeding into the nearby tony liberal suburbs recently, so suddenly there's a sense of urgency over cracking down on these "youths".

These kids don't know that you just don't fark with those people.

If they're anything like the cuts that other government types and reporters always scream about, they're "cuts" in that the increase is less than they were expecting.

You know, as long as we are paging people, can someone send some carjackers to my house?

cue dreamsequencewavylines

Oh, hey! Don't hurt me, but you can take these two cars, drive them around and total them out. Make sure to leave them someplace that they can be found in the next month or so.

Hello? Insurance company? Yeah! My cars have been stolen. We loved them. They were part of the family. Yes, I know there have been a lot of thefts. We are heartbroken about it.

(counting cash) Thanks, carjackers! You saved me a lot of headache and green-guilt from having to crush our old cars. Hope you had fun! Good luck running from the cops!

end dreamsequencewavy lines.

Ah. I wish. My cars are worth probably twice as much carjacked as they are in my driveway. I would not resort to fraud, and it is only a few thousand bucks, but some good car thieves could really do me a solid about now.

"Experts say carjackings have risen exponentially over the past 18 months or so"

What's that supposed to mean?  Like doubling every month for 18 months?  So there were 262144 times as many carjackings last month, as 19 months ago?  Shenanigans!

"many of the offenders are teenagers. "

Meh, I drive a manual - I'm safe.

It's clear they are implying black teenagers for the usual Fox News ooga booga.

But it is true that a lot of carjackings are committed by teenagers -- mainly because they're the demographic stupid enough to do it. The vehicles are almost always found abandoned, so there's rarely any monetary payoff. The risk vs. reward for this crime is off the charts skewed toward risk. The only reason the kids are doing it is for the thrill or to boost their street cred (or to pass through rival gang turf undetected). And that's the idiocy of teenagers in a nutshell.

And, yeah, the fact that we're in the middle of a pandemic isn't a coincidence. A lot of activities for teens have been curtailed and a lot more people are at home, which means teens want to get out of the house and away from their families.

And, finally, kids who come from families well enough off that they have access to their own car generally aren't going to be the ones doing carjackings. Oh, and you also need to live someplace with enough cars to carjack and enough streets to go undetected. (Bumblefark, Nebrahoma population 200 isn't going to see a lot of this kind of crime.) So, yeah, it is mainly a poor, urban teenage crime.

I don't know what that means, but here's one of the recent incidents in the largely Jewish suburb of St Louis Park, Minnesota that turned those normally passive and apologetic rich Democrats into tough-on-crime types.

Plus, there's a money-shot:

A person carrying a legal firearm intervened by pulling his gun. At that point, the teens jumped out of the vehicle and ran away.

I must have missed the news about cities loosening up on concealed weapons permits.  Odd that with all the increase in crime there hasn't been a noticeable increase in shootouts.  But I'll keep an eye open because obviously, you are not FOS.

I know a guy who has a side gig stealing and destroying cars at the request of the owners who are underwater or just need the insurance money for $500 per car. He gets to keep whatever he can take from the vehicle before he torches it.

I call bullcrap on the claim it's because of not enough cops - the more people struggle, the more crime you have - it's a symptom of income inequality - more people are stealing because more people are not able to live normally on regular jobs - so more fall off the bottom end and become thieves - it's really that simple

Ah here we go, yet another pro-gun person who can't do simple logic.

If you have something that happens, let's say fires, and you have more of the cause, match sales go up for example, and everything else stays the same then you can safely expect more fires if there are more causes of fires, even if all else remain equal.

So when you are saying that permits and inner city laws remains unchanged, it is actually proving my point since if all else remains the same then the rise in crime must be related to the rise in a cause of crime - more guns.
