    detroit man attacked with screwdriver

    I know this has nothing to with cc but i hope this guy might consider
    carrying now. a detroit man was stabbed several times in the head
    by a would be carjacker. police said mr.xxxxx xxxxxxxxx received
    15 stitches and gashes on his head while trying to fight off carjackers
    whowere trying to steal his minivan from his driveway.
    the attack happened on his driveway where he lived for 15 years.
    (story cut short) he was stabbed a few times in the head while
    his wife and kids watched from inside the house. thats when his
    wife xxxxx decided to take action with a baseball bat. eventually
    thecarjackers ran away without the minivan. mr. xxxxxxxxxx said
    he is tired of feeling threated in his own home and said many of his
    neighbors have had their cars stolen. sad story and sorry for the
    newsflash but thank god for the castle doctrine law. i just hope that

    and his family. just got to be a horrible site for your kids to see that
    happen.

    Goes to show - not only the potential for things happening but - just about any darned thing can be a weapon ...... plenty of things other than guns, and lethal too.

    Carry is essential - well I think so. No point folks burying heads in the sand these days.

    Petition your congressman! NOW! Darn screwdriver violence has gotten out of hand. Call the Brady Bunch. Let them know of the terrible tragedy being foisted on the unknowing public by the powerful screwdriver lobby (headed by the NSA-National Screwdriver Association).

    It's hard to believe what so many dirtbags will do for a 'ride', a wallet with $2, or an accidental stare...

    Time to shut 'em all down ...permanently!

    Man Attacked With Screwdriver In Car Jacking Attempt

    updated 5:53 p.m. ET, Tues., Dec. 4, 2007

    DETROIT - A Detroit man was stabbed several times in the head with a screwdriver by a would-be carjacker, police said. Police said Frank Fitzgerald received 15 stitches and gashes on his head while trying to fight off carjackers who were trying to steal his minivan from his driveway.



    The attack happened on the driveway of Fitzgerald's Detroit home of 15 years, on the 8200 block of Patton Street.

    Fitzgerald said he came out of his house when he heard his car start in the driveway.

    "He was taller than me, so he had a direct line to my head. He stabbed down on my head a few times with the screwdriver and then we fell onto the ground," Fitzgerald told Local 4 News.

    Fitzgerald's five young children and wife were watching the attack from inside the home, said Fitzgerald.

    "My son thought that somebody hurt me very bad. He was very upset and very shaken," said Fitzgerald.

    That's when his wife, Vickie, decided to take action. She grabbed a baseball bat from the closet and went outside.

    "My husband was bleeding really badly at that point and he was trying really bad to fight," said Vickie. "The guy was stabbing him on top of the head at that point, so I went out with a baseball bat and tried to fight them."

    Eventually both men ran off without the minivan.

    Fitzgerald told Local 4 he is tired of feeling threatened in his own home. Many of his neighbors have had their cars stolen.

    "It makes me very angry, to take something that you don't own, that you didn't work for," said Fitzgerald.

    Fitzgerald said he did not get a good description of the carjackers.
