    FL: Drivers in West Palm, Delray shot in 'bump and rob' attacks

    Drivers in West Palm, Delray shot in 'bump and rob' attacks

    WEST PALM BEACH There's a new crime in town. It's called the "bump and rob." And local law enforcement is increasingly worried over drivers being victimized.

    So much so, they are warning Palm Beach County residents that if you are driving on the road between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. and another car bumps you from behind, do not get out of your car.

    FYI for those nightowls in FL
    "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

    That is not new, they were doing that back in the 80's when I was stationed in FWB. That's all I heard was bump and robs going on from Dade up to Palm Beach counties. it is amazing how quiet the media can keep things in tourists states and areas like Vegas and SoFlo. That being said, I see the Dade creep has passed Broward and is up up as far as St. Lucie county now. Sad.

    Well, at least they are warning people so they can be prepared. That's a good thing.

    They had a local news story on that here in Denver earlier in the week of one suspect that is being sought in 5 different occurrences. 2 or 3 of the bumpees did not get out of their car, the BG came to them.

    Azchevy is correct - this is an oldie. Been happening in south Florida so long, the rental car agencies warn you to never pull over after a "bump" but to proceed to the nearest law enforcement agency. For muggers, this is the equivalent of "drive-thru" service.

    If they tap me from behind, they'll find themselves at their local bump and pop store.

    At 17 years old lets hope they get charged and serve time as adults.

    They do that all the time in Detroit and they do it more with women than men. If I get bumped, I'll tell the other driver to follow me to the nearest police station.

    Isn't this part of the reason they changed the rental car plates? I seem to remember something about targeting rental cars.
