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.

Well, he won’t do THAT again................
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes
Other than mom being a complete idiot I dont really have much of a problem with how things ended.
When authorities fail in their duties to protect citizens and their property people will do so on their own. Thats human nature. Trying to fight that is silly.
Its great when young men can come together and do something positive for the community.
A remember when a guy was murdered in front of his own child by carjackers in Philadelphia. Id love to see more stories like this one.
If I’d seen it, I’d have had a sudden memory failure when asked abouit it.
The car is today’s horse. Horse stealing plus kidnapping. Both were traditionally capital crimes.
When authorities fail in their duties to protect citizens and their property people will do so on their own.
They not only fail to protect citizens, they also fail to mete out punishment that serves to deter further criminality. Most thugs have arrest records a mile long so obviously the justice system is not working.
Things that don’t work get replaced by things that do. Just saying
Carjacker or child kidnapper?
God bless you.
Exactly. The best way to replace vigilante justice is a functioning formal justice system.
Social justice? Now all you folks like it??!!!!?!?!
“The car is todays horse.”
A better analogy is the motorcycle as today’s horse, where he rides alone. The car is more like today’s wagon.
Well, no excuse or pity for the jacker, but the momma should be taken away for child neglect. leaving 3 under 5 y.o.s in the car with motor running? In the hood?....
I’d call this the jungle but that would be taken as racist
Just saying very concisely.
For the past 50 years, the story of development in Strawberry Mansion, which is now 94 percent African American, has been mostly one of decline. Once a rich Jewish enclave, the neighborhood fell into disrepair after white flight in the 1950s and ’60s, and median income plummeted. Over the past decade, city-funded affordable housing built by PHA has been considered the bright spot.
Yep, this particular perpetrator has been permanently reformed.
Not one name in the story, not even the dead car jacker. That makes me suspicious that this is a hoax.
