    Carjacker beaten to death after stealing car with kids inside.

    I can understand the fury of the boyfriend and crowd but this is not this is not the way to get justice. This is a reminder, never leave your car running unoccupied why make it an easy target for thieves.

    Philadelphia man, neighborhood mob beats carjacker to death after suspect takes off with 3 kids: Cops

    A sudden outburst of mob justice Thursday night in Philadelphia ended with a carjacker dead and a 25-year-old man being questioned by police Friday after the thief's attempt to snatch a running vehicle -- with the man's children inside -- reportedly went awry.

    Officials said an unidentified 25-year-old woman was traveling with her three children Thursday when she stopped outside a pizza shop on 29th and Dauphin St. at about 9 p.m. to visit her boyfriend, who worked at the pizzeria, according to WCAU.

    When she went inside, the woman reportedly left her car running with her three children -- a 7-month-old, a 1-year-old and a 5-year-old -- inside.

    Thatís when police say a 54-year-old man entered the car and took off.

    Stupid to leave your children in a running car? Yes, absolutely.

    However, this man chased down someone who had taken his wife/girlfriends car with his children inside. When the guy caught him after foot persuit a struggle ensued and the car jacker lost his life to a crowd of fathers watching a man protect his children...I know it isn't trained LEO's , but I see nothing wrong here.

    The man should be charged with endangering the welfare of a minor for leaving them unattended.

    If I were the judge, Iíd give him a pass on the other little thing.

    How so? The man was the one at work.

    For the rest, I'm good with it. Kidnapping kids is justification for deadly force in most places. This one just took a bit longer.

    After going back and reading the news clip, I stand corrected sir.

    Watching someone drive off in my car with my children inside? Unless I could get a grip REAL fast, Iíd probably pummel the guy to death too.

    Well itís Philadelphia so the DA will probably have to review the races of those involved before deciding to press charges

    Well, I donít know the whole story, but I do have a bit of a problem with a mob stomping a guy to death, even if it was well-deserved. Perhaps it reflects a lack of trust in the criminal justice system to properly deal with criminals?

    now thats the kind of "it takes a village".......

    now this should not be condoned...but here is the big BUT.

    what causes this kind of justice is the INjustice and political correctness for years/decades of not being tough many criminals. sooner or later the village is going to be fed up and exact its own justice. Every action eventually results in opposite and equal reaction.

    Those who know Philly will better understand this. The woman is an idiot for leaving her kids alone in a car with the motor running. What make her a first class idiot with numbskull cluster is that she did it 9PM at 29 & Dauphin Sts. I would not go there at night even armed.

    The father should get a pass. The mother, on the other hand, should be charged with (at least) Reckless Endangerment.
