    Default So Carjackings are a thing these days...

    Let's start with some recent statistics

    In 2019 there were 225 carjackings, in 2020 there were 410, and in 2021, police said there have already been 28 carjackings. (as of January 28th)

    Note that Carson already has a thread on the victim defending himself at 18th & Callowhill

    Then there's the two scumbags who jacked a 78 year old woman with cancer.

    It's not just Philly - Chiraq is in the playoffs as well.

    Meanwhile, the number of carjackings through the first month of 2021 exploded with 218 vehicular hijackings reported, compared to 77 in January 2020, according to CPD data. That*s an increase of 183%.

    Even more food for thought, including this -

    Driving away from danger is always the best option. To preserve that option, donít tailgate. When you stop behind another car, make sure you can see the rear tires so youíll have enough turning radius to drive around if necessary.

    Generally carjackings can be avoided by not driving in philthy cities.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    When wasn't it a thing? Especially in Philly where vehicular homicide is one of the preferred methods of murder.

    Eh, not sure if you are confusing terms, but nowhere near correct.

    Anybody saw the white officer kicking the black suspect a couple of times while he was down already? I am calling for a riot, I need sneakers. Then one officer lead him away with his pants down. Why were his pants down?

    This is fun.......!

    Some folks have to drive in the city. Some folks even want to live in the city. It*s not for everybody, but living in the sticks isn*t for everybody either.

    BTW I have driven in the city since about 1980 and have never been carjacked. Not even in a blue & white or all white
