    Woman hits thief with car

    It will be interesting to see how this one turns out. I suspect using her car (a deadly weapon) to "apprehend" the fleeing thief is going to be a problem for her, since he was no longer a threat to her. Hopefully, she will get a sympathetic judge.

    Would this qualify as distracted driving?

    The guy in the video is right, people work hard for what they have, and there tired of this crap. In the past ive had a car stolen, and many years ago i was robbed at knife point when i was in high school, on school property. So i know first hand what its like, and people have just had enough. I now have a CCW permit and i will never let this happen to me again. I will use my vehicle or my gun to stop the bad guy if necessary. Im not bad guy and im not a tuff guy, im just someone thats experianced these things first hand and will do whats necessary to stop it.

    These remarks sound overly aggressive IMHO. If I'm wrong, then someone please correct me. Imagine that you have an incident where you are forced to harm someone, and the prosecuting attorney then digs this up and reads it to a jury. I would recommend against posting this type of language on public forum.

    Peace

    Good thing about a car, you don't have to conceal it, and though the balistics aren't that great they are very effective.

    You know, I hear from so many anti-gunners how cars are not weapons. This lady proved me right.

    Not to get into a caliber war but a SUV does have more actual knock down power than a 9mm.

    The dirtbag stole an iPhone, the victim hit him with her car...the dirtbag was last seen making a...'long distance crawl'.

    ^^^^^^^^^IF this goes to trial,^^^^^^^^^^^


    She would be better of with a jury.

    They will find her NOT guilty.

    Good people in Detroit are fed up with these miscretants, preying on them.


    This from the article:


    "Gentleman was trying to snatch a young (lady's) iPhone or something and he took off running," said witness Neely Lewis. "She hit him with the car."

    We're told the 22-year-old man was running toward a Family Dollar store. Lewis said he got what was coming to him.

    "She should've hit him. People (are) tired of people out here taking their stuff. They work hard for it," he told us




    ^^^I take exception to this guy referring^^^^^^^^^


    To the knuckledragger as a "Gentleman" though


    Just a rotten punk who thinks what YOU have, He deserves.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!
