    Violent Carjacking - Mobile, Alabama

    If the victim had shot the carjacker and this situation were the other way around - you'd hear the bad guy's mom on the news saying how good her boy is and they shouldn't have shot him.



    I'd have rather heard this the other way around - where the intended victim shot the car jacker instead.....

    MOBILE, Ala. - Victor Reed, 22, was booked at the Metro Jail shortly after 2:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon. He's charged with robbery and attempted murder. That carjacking happened in October. Now, the victim's mother is speaking out.

    Maecheryl White speaks from the heart when it comes to her 34-year-old son Larry Herman. Right now, Herman is at USA Hospital, paralyzed after a violent carjacking.

    "What they did was horrible," said White. "Each day you pick up the newspaper and hear of another carjacking case and a family that's been destroyed."

    White's son became the victim of violent crime in October, when he was shot twice at the corner of Adams and North Ann Street, he was heading home from his girlfriend's.

    One bullet pierced his spine, the other struck his face. White wants her sons attacker brought to justice. And after a starring role on Fox 10's Fugitive files' police say he was.

    Victor Reed was arrested not far from the scene of the crime.

    "I want him punished because he has taken my sons life away from him," said White. "He's having a hard time, he has to rehab on his body as well as his mind."

    But without insurance he isn't able to get it.

    Unfortunately,White isn't sure what she is going to do. As for caring for him at home, she's got a hospital bed but no mattress and still needs a breathing machine.

    Car jacker is probably laughing about it too. The jerk should get a short trip to the execution chamber, but we know that won't happen. Instead he will probably be back on the streets before his victim is out of rehab.

    Innocent guy minding his own business shot twice and now his life is ruined. I would volunteer for the firing squad on that dirt bag attacker.

    Why a firing squad?? Let the victims family have him, they'd serve better justice.

    That being said, now let the comments come as to how horrible or bad I am for saying that.

    Had it been the other way around, we would be paying for a mattress and breathing machine for the worthless scum.

    I can't disagree with your reasoning.
    I believe every court house should have a rope or two out front as a reminder to anyone considering violent crimes against humanity.

    Cruel & unusual punishment? You bet.

    This is a good example of why I carry, and am an active observer of people.

    Not saying he should have seen him coming or that had the victim been armed he'd have been able to do anything.
    But for myself in looking for persons as I walk and drive who to me might seem 'off' and in being a person who does carry arms my odds of success should such a situation same or similar occur are greater toward survival than without either.
    Further if I'm going to be killed or maimed as this man has been then I want to go down if not out having fought like an animal, by any means necessary.

    have you ever read diary accounts from the middle and late 1800's? Men wrote about how they'd rather be shot than hanged. You can find these diary's online to get the full descriptions of what these men thought about being hung and how bad they perceived it to be. Now doubt that was a deterent. Also, criminals steared clear of judges or sheriffs they knew to hand down death sentences. They even disliked jail. Now, most criminals are not concerned with jail.

    Yep. ^^

    Hanging was deemed to be the worst way to go.
    And prisons were down right inhumane places no one wanted to be caught and taken to alive. When you got out you sure as heck did not want to go back in, back then.

    Hey now, what kind of talk is that? These poor guys had bad childhoods and you people won't cut'm a little slack. Most of them are in the process of turning their lives around and they're actually good people at heart. If you don't believe that, just ask their mothers. Right!

    Sad story...hope the scumbags meet a victim who is armed and ready!

    These types of crimes should be a wake-up call to all , but it's not.
    I watch everyone when I'm out in public. No one should be able to approach you without some notice of them.

    i stay away from dark areas, lonely streets (unless I'm going the speed limit), and store parking lots (as much as possible). I try to see ANY movement in and around my wife and I when we are out.

    Stay armed...watch everyone...stay safe!

    Retsupt -- I do that too, and I try to encourage others (mostly sheep) to also maintain decent S.A. -- I have told them that even if you don't carry, good S.A. will often save you or keep you out of harms' way. But the problem is, the sheep just don't listen! I guess you have to have the mindset that goes with being a warrior. The sheep just aren't that, and I don't know what it takes to make them warriors short of a violent attack (and even that doesn't always do it).
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
