    Default Carjacked!

    I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers for my Mom in law Sandy. She was carjacked on Wednsday and he beat her up pretty good. She's in her 60's and he is 18.

    That's terrible. Will keep her healing in our prayers. I take it they caught the guy?

    What a stinky situation. How scary for her.

    And for the people on the road during the car chase.

    Glad they caught him though. What a dope. Like it's that hard to work for a living?

    Thanks everyone. She hit her head pretty hard but nothing shows on the MRI. She's just really bruised up and has lacerations on her arms from his finger nails. Of course we all (the guys at Thanksgiving) thought it would be a good idea to help him with bail, but ended up hoping the police took the long way back to the station. She is a tough lady I just hope the mental side of it doesn't get her.

    I hope that she makes it through without any problems.


    Too bad we as a society can't do something against these idiots. It would be nice if we could make an example out of these jerks.

    The worst part is Riverside County has released like 6000 early because of overcrowding. Then the halfway homes send them to places like Wallgreens to collect donations. Hopefully this will draw some attention to the problem.

    I pray that The Lord Jesus not only speak strength, and healing to her body, but to her faith in Him. Was the attacker strung out? I have a very hard time understanding how beating on the elderly/helpless makes someone feel strong? Why could'nt they just take it without hurting her? The only answer that makes sense to me is that the attacker is high on something, and not really in control of themselves. I think that is why GOD's Word warns us to stay away from strong drink. Because of the potential for abuse of the substance, and our spiraling deeper into uncontrollable sin, ie: carjacking,murder etc.. Again I pray that GOD's healing hand be upon her.

    I wish the best for your Mother-in-law and I hope that justice is served and the teen gets incarcerated for a long time, so he can think about how he has affected everyone involved.

    I'm very happy that she only suffered minor injuries and nothing worse.

    We're too easy on jerks like this. We can't afford to put them up and feed them so we let them back onto the streets before they've served their already too-short terms to prey on the innocent.

    It cost millions to provide air conditioning, cable television, nutritious meals, and so forth for felons....a quality bullet only costs about 0.50. But I digress, we're far too civilized to punish someone in such a harsh manner.... that's why we let them back out...so they can hurt more law-abiding citizens and jeapordize even more innocent lives... Hooray Civilization!

    I don't knpw what to say, I have supported groups like Victory Outreach Etc. and I'm not sure I should have. I've asumed that there are checks and balances to keep violent offenders from being used to gather funds especially in front of places like Wallgreens where you know there will be a large number of elderly customers. I just hope this will do something to change the situation. My Father in Law said a guy who had been to his business looking for donations was convicted of killing a local female hairdresser. Needless to say something has got to change!

    Hmm, everytime I mention the hanging from the streetlamps with a sign on them stating what their crime was people look at me strange. Thanks so much for your prayers!
