Lucky?: Carjacking caught on video
This didn't make the news. Only read about it on a local forum:
Springfield Community Bulletin Board - View topic - Carjacking in Hamsterdam
and the video:
still images from slightly different angles:
What would you do in a scenario like that. The bad guys came walking up with the gun already drawn.

SO hand over the keys, and start dialing. It can be replaced, you and your loved ones CAN NOT.

I wouldn't have grabbed the passenger door like he did. He coulda got shot.
They can have the car in that situation. Only way I'm drawing is if a loved one is still in the car.

Just a guess, it looked like the two who rode past on the bikes. If that was the case I'd reconized the threat as they turned around/stopped. Big possiability I'd engage.............but I'm spectulating from my computer at work.
Or, if I'm wrong, those two O2 wasters were hiding in the shadows, and if I'm carrying or not, they'd get the drop.
In the first 'guess', I may or may not engage.
Second case, keys and wallet are thiers. That stuff's insured.

Hard to tell if it was the two on the bikes or not but either way he was crazy to grab the passenger door like that. It is so easy to sit behind a computer and second guess.
