Well, it’s one way of dealing with thieving bastards

A Philadelphia father was allegedly assisted by a gang of men in fatally assaulting a suspect who stole his girlfriend's car with their young children inside. 

The violent incident began when an unidentified woman, 25, was traveling with her three children and stopped outside a pizza shop on 29th and Dauphin St in Strawberry Mansion, Philadelphia at 9.50 pm on Thursday.   

The woman was visiting her boyfriend, 25, who worked at the pizzeria and left her Hyundai sedan running outside. 

A  54-year-old man then got into the car and took off with three children, aged 7-months, one and five, inside the vehicle. 

He was able to drive about half a block before he became caught in traffic, and the couple then caught up with him and forced him out of the car, NBC reported. 

The carjacker then fled on foot, but the father caught up with him and a physical confrontation ensued. It is understood the man is the father of two of the children.

In fairness I'd might do the same as the father in a similar situation. Although fortunately my wife would never leave our child in the car unattended or leave the it running, never mind both together so I'd never find myself in that position.

It's obviously an excellent move to leave children in cars with the key. Before you know it they have worked it out, and it's a write off.

How near are you to Philadaphia, and why does this worry you?

However she should be able to without some scumbag stealing the car 

Still a bit reckless

My two year old son has already worked out where we keep our keys, which key is the door key and has been caught several times trying to unlock and then open the door. It's an old door and there's a knack to opening it that he hasn't mastered, otherwise I think he'd be long gone by now.

They (kids) want to escape our care until they realise that running a home costs money. I leave my door unlocked most of the time but my 25 year old son hasn’t gone yet xD

You need to lock the door when he is out. Preferably change the locks. xD

Doesn’t worry me at all, just wondering if we should adopt this approach this side of the pond. 

Not really. You only know when a situation arises.

There is such a thing as a planned strategy 

You strike me as worried about stuff that won't happen, and I don't think think that's you. You been talking to some arseholes here, and the fear rubs off somehow.O.o

Yes.  Given that one child was under 1, and was likely his, then there's a deep instinct to protect the family, which could well result in murder.  I think many people would do similar, albeit a decent skillset would be required to have this end result.

Oh G-d!

Good lord Carl. Are you a francophone. I only have a saxophone myself.

Well I think you're accusing some people here of being "arseholes". I just wondered who you were talking about?

I think people worry too much about "imagined" problems which aren't there. That is all.

Is the chance of her/anyone else in Britain being :

Stabbed

Raped

Abused

Mugged

Held back from jobs/training

Being forced to move to avoid danger

Killed by a knife

Killed by a bomb

Killed by a car/truck/vehicle

A witness to something horrendous

Made to be a minority in her own country

Forced to live in fear

 

Higher, or lower than it was before the gates were opened to those from outwith our country?

I like the use of “outwith” Carl. Superb word.
