Careful whose car you steal

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48976262

Suspected carjacker dies after 'mob justice' in Philadelphia.

A couple have been questioned by police and may face charges after a suspected carjacker was beaten by a mob and died in the US city of Philadelphia.
Police say the man who died had tried on Thursday to steal a woman's car with her three young children inside.
The woman's boyfriend, the father of two of the children, managed to chase the car when it got stuck in traffic.
The suspect, 54, was then pulled out of the vehicle and beaten by the boyfriend and some local residents, police say.
The suspected carjacker was unconscious when emergency services arrived at the scene shortly afterwards. He later died in a local hospital.

The couple who were questioned by police are both aged 25. They have not been identified.
"I'm not a fan of street justice," Philadelphia Police Capt Jason Smith was quoted as saying by CBS.
"I think everything should play out through us as it comes to criminal actions," he added.

The city's medical examiner's office is yet to determine how the suspected carjacker died.

Surely that is not a car jack?
It is kidnapping 3 kids.

Hint for coroner 'stupid thief found out by Darwin'.

Good on the vigilantes ...................

Police in UK are useless, and too many folks too scared to act against this sort of low life, hence the high crime rates especially in city areas !!

I hope the police see sense and realise he was acting in the defence of his wife and children .......................

His statement should read "He was in fear for his own and his families lives when he used reasonable force, at which point the suspect slipped when trying to escape and fell hitting his head" !!

And unfortunately stumbled into several bollards forcefully.

No bollards were harmed, but suspect spoke in a high tone afterwards.
