Carjackings have spiked across America’s big cities, especially those with Soros-funded prosecutors who don’t prosecute criminals. As a result, Philly’s dealing with nearly ten per day. Chicago criminals makes Philly’s look like amateurs. Young people think it’s an easy way to pick up a new ride without working too hard.
Sometimes, though, it doesn’t go off as planned.
For instance, there have been several instances of good guys with carry licenses using their firearms to thwart carjackers, a number of them in Philadelphia alone. But sometimes, the bad guys earn their just desserts in other ways.
A dashcam in a large pickup truck captured a recent attempted carjacking in a major American city. In the video, a pair of thugs pile out after the driver of a sedan stops on an overpass ramp in an effort to force their target victim to stop.
Unfortunately for the bad guys, their little craptastic econobox car proved no match for the horsepower of a large pickup truck.

It surely looks as though the pickup truck driver escaped unharmed. Meanwhile, the carjackers likely walked home, assuming the police didn’t stop them and offer a ride.
Another sort-of happy ending in Chicago
Once in a great while, the police actually catch carjackers in a ‘jacked ride. Like this take-down in Chicago capture on video.
Prosecutors on Friday charged a man with trying to kill a Chicago police officer who approached him while investigating an allegedly hijacked car in the Loop this week. Two other men in the vehicle with Edgardo Perez face lesser felony charges.
Perez, 24, was in the car’s front passenger seat as Noel Centeno, 20, drove and Jesse Sanchez, 21, sat in the rear driver’s-side passenger seat, Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said during bond hearings for the men.
A CPD surveillance camera captured the events as they unfolded at the intersection of Lower Wacker Drive and Columbus Drive at 8:48 p.m. Wednesday.
Murphy said a bodyworn camera on an officer who approached the car’s passenger side recorded the officer ordering its occupants to show their hands. The CPD surveillance camera recorded Perez firing a handgun toward the officer at close range, according to the allegations.
Murphy said Perez was armed with a handgun that had an extended ammunition magazine and a laser sight. Police recovered one shell casing from the scene that they believe came from Perez’s gun.
