I was watching this carjacker as he was driving his 2nd car trying to evade the cops.
As the chase came to its inevitable end, I found myself wanting blood!
I was screaming at the TV “KILL HIM, KILL HIM”. When he bailed out of the vehicle I was genuinely hoping someone would run him over. When he went down due to a gunshot, I was saying “LET HIM DIE!”
I really was hoping the dumb ‘load his daddy should have jacked down the toilet‘ would bleed out right there on the road.
I wanted him to be a shining example of stupidity and it’s immediate consequence.
Unfortunately, LA Fire was too efficient in getting paramedics to that asshole.
I complement the LAPD and Paramedics of LA Fire. Those guys did a great job, the police in trying to be take this guy alive (Although personally a bullet in his head would have been acceptable at ANY point), and LA Fire working to save this guy.
There are times when I find myself wanting a Blackhawk helicopter to just cut a car jacker, or a high speed chase vehicle in half.
No warning, nothing spectacular just 5 or 10 seconds of .50 or .60 caliber fire. The vehicle turning into a burning shell with no survivors.
How many of those would it take before folks just stopped doing this stupid shit?
Probably not too many!
Then I realized that I was probably thinking like the ancient Romans during the gladiatorial games. After a nice lead up, you see the battle, (In this case the chase, the destruction during multiple accidents), then the finale.
BLOOD! Death, and a feeling that the killing was well deserved.
Especially in this situation.
The guy stole one car, then on live TV shoves a gun in a woman’s face and jacked her car. The news showed the accidents he’d been involved in prior to him jacking that lady’s car.
I joined right as he took the lady’s car and watched the rest of the insanity unfold. I lost count of how many cars he damaged.
I was pissed, I wanted to see him die. I was thinking, “Oh yeah, he deserves to be screaming in agony and die on that street.”
All I need is a toga, and wine.
