Chasing them down is double murder anywhere.
This part of the article is too good not to share:
“Johnson [one of the carjackers], a loving, caring, brother, became the father of a boy last month, said his sister, Yanique Johnson, 26.
“The unidentified Mercedes driver was taken into custody and has been uncooperative, cops sources said.”
The victim is probably toast for having an unregistered weapon and no license to have it.
What he should have done is flee when his task was completed.
Yep, that’s the Daily lib for you. No doubt in the coming days they’ll have photos of him holding the baby, especially if the Mercedes owner is white and he is black, all in prep for the massive lawsuits.
Well that’s if he did. Maybe they were shooting at him.
Yep, exactly. The worst thing Bernard Goetz ever did was turn himself in. A Bronx jury eventually found a $43 MILLION dollar judgement against him. Get mugged twice, with the city doing the biggest mugging.
Amish steal cars in NYC? Who knew?
The police are never there to help just plain old YOU. They are there to enforce that laws and policies that their government choose.
In this place, NYC, the very last thing you want to do is deal with police after having shot someone, whether legally or not. My advice is to hop in your car leaving the immediate area with your lights off and drive like you stole it.
Johnson, a loving, caring, brother, became the father of a boy last month, said his sister, Yanique Johnson, 26.
Why the %^@#$! was he in an attempted armed car jacking then?
This is how justice should be handed out. On the spot, only cost is the clean-up, end of story.
Stupid and dead perps—should have taken Janis Joplin’s advice instead.
According to census data, Wakefield is primarily black, 73% and 19% hispanic so the Mercedes guy is probably not white.
If he were, by now, Sharpton and the rest of the race pimps would already be surrounding the police station demanding
Regardless of the races, I submit the planet is better off without those two.

.........taken into custody and has been uncooperative...
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
‘went berserk’ That is a pretty damning statement.
....surprised they didn’t claim he ‘murdered’ the two punks.
Course if it weren’t for sensationalist headlines, the NY Daily News would have nothing to report.
As to uncooperative, he is just following ‘the guidelines’ of saying NOTHING to anyone but a lawyer.
Can’t imagine the neighborhood he was in but pretty sure he wouldn’t want to be standing in the middle of the street when the rest of the troglodytes came crawling up out of the sewer...Probably figured he was better off trying to get his car back....
At least that is the ‘defense’ I would be using ....
“That’s my story and I am sticking to it”
“Chasing them down is double murder anywhere.”
I agree...but they still would get a pass if it’s me on the jury. Assuming the guy was minding his own business when these two sons butted in and scared the crap out of him...that, to me, makes a “rational response” more difficult, and therefore I give him more leeway.
Bottom line - if you want to jack someone, you have to be prepared for a non-happy ending.
Give the shooter a medal. But, he’s in NYC AND I’m sure DeBlasio will have the DA throw the book at him.
Yep, because his life is going to be nothing but absolute hell now. That city does everything they possibly can to screw over victims of crimes. Just as one example, when I was insane enough to live there, one night I came back from work, parked my car in the street. Next morning I came out 5am saw my side view mirrors were smashed and my windshield cracked, most likely by some ferals during the school night. And what was in my windshield? Two tickets for “Equipment violation, no side view mirror and damaged windshield”. Crime committed, city wastes absolutely no time in screwing over the victim.
Almost as good as this part: "Thats when their target pulled his own gun and riddled Johnsons green Acura TL with bullets, cops said."
Who'd he steal the Acura from?
western: shoot, shovel, and shut-up.
coastal areas: shoot, haul, dump and sail away.
hopefully; the shooter is relatively safe and shall be set free..sad, to see lawful citizens are treated
like scum, while the criminals run wild.
Jermaine Johnson and Kaiison Lewis
Nah, nutin but good old white Lutheran names there.
