That was the headline on a story I read today... I'm lovin' it!
As a mother, I know how I do everything I can possibly do to protect my children... no matter how big they've gotten. But, this mother I'm talking about was in a position where she had to protect her 2 and 5 year old from a carjacker armed with a knife in her car! This brave (or is it really "I'm now in fight mode because you are threatening the safety of my children") mom not only refused to go along with the carjacker's demands, but she actually physically fought with him which left her with a long gash across her chest and a bite on her hand before hitting him in the face and telling him to get out of her car. When he didn't get out, she then drove the vehicle into a telephone pole trying to throw him through the windshield! This stupid carjacker eventually got out and ran away, BUT not before this mom ran him down with her car! He didn't get away and now is facing felony charges AFTER he gets out of the hospital!
All I can say is Wow! Makes me think of the elderly woman here in Springfield who fought with a carjacker just a couple weeks ago. How brave SHE was... and he was caught, too. Now, I don't think we should all just go in for a big brawl with carjackers, but I do have to say that I am proud when women stand up against these bullies and WIN!
Be careful out there, lock those car doors and don't give them any chances to try and carjack you!
