You’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a story that we already covered in the past week, but it’s not: Another woman in Detroit used a firearm to deter an attempted carjacking. It was 5 a.m. Monday when the unnamed armed citizen had a man approach her in her vehicle, allegedly trying to steal it. She produced her handgun and fired at the perpetrator, causing him to flee. Police had not caught the suspect at the time of the report, but had found some blood near the scene of the incident.
When the same story takes place twice in Detroit, it’s all too common for it to be a depressing tale. It is wonderful to see a narrative emerging of Detroit residents refusing to tolerate the lawlessness that has threatened to overrun their city.
