They are getting more and more bold. Some local thugs decided to carjack two people not once, but twice in one night. They carjacked a woman in Ridgeland, drove to Scott County, and carjacked another car in Scott County in the same night. Police chased them back to Jackson on I-20. The police threw down strips in Rankin County but the perps got through them somehow and hit several police cars. One source said they tried to run over a deputy. Police attempted to shoot out a tire but the bullet ricocheted and struck one suspect in the arm. The five suspects were teens from Jackson.
The crime itself is pretty bold but what was even more brazen is that the suspects live-streamed the chase on Facebook with um, color commentary. You read that sentence correctly. They attempted to go Worldstar by showing a live carjacking and police chase in action. The video is posted below.
Here are some quotes from the video:
"I got bail money"
"My mother got a good ass lawyer"
"We burning their ass aren't we"
"We on the way back to Jackson"
"We fixing to cross these lines, they can't cross it"
"I ain't gonna bail, we burning their ass up"
"I ain't getting back in no orange-ass jump shoot"
"Sumbitches lined up all over there"
"WE GOT EIGHT MOTHERFUCKING POLICE HAHAHAHAHAHA"
"Aw fuck, they trying to kill us bro, they shoot"
"Hey bro, they fixing to shoot"
"They tryin' to kill us. Tell my mama I loved if her I don't see her"
"This real ass celebrity type shit"
Meanwhile, Rankin-Madison District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following press release:
Last night at approximately 11:40 p.m. the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department received a Bolo from the Forest Police Department on a stolen brown Honda Accord and a red Nissan Sentra. The Sentra had been stolen at gunpoint from Ridgeland (at 8:30 pm), and was involved in an armed carjacking in the city of Forest. The alert stated that the occupants of the vehicle may be armed.
Rankin County Sheriff’s Department located the Nissan Sentra on Interstate 20 headed west bound. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle and the vehicle fled. Officers pursued the vehicle at speeds in excess of 100 mph. During the pursuit, as the vehicle was entering more densely populated areas of the county, officers attempted to disable the vehicle by firing a shot at the rear tire of the stolen car. The bullet struck the car and then ricocheted and struck the back seat passenger. The stolen vehicle continued to travel into the City of Jackson and the vehicle ultimately was stopped and the occupants were placed under arrest. The back seat passenger was transported to the hospital for treatment for a wound he suffered to his upper arm. MBI was contacted and is conducting an investigation into the shooting of the vehicle. Once their investigation is complete their finding will be turned over to our office.
A third vehicle, a Dodge Charger, stolen from Hinds County was located by the Forest Police Department. The two occupants of the vehicle were arrested. The Charger was believed to have been involved in the armed carjacking in Ridgeland and the armed carjacking in Forest. The names of the individuals arrest are not being released at this time as they are juveniles but will be released once formally charged in Ridgeland. The ages of the suspects are 15, 16, and three 17 year olds all from Jackson.
There are currently multiple law enforcement agencies that are involved in this ongoing investigation. They include the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department, Mississippi Bureau of Investigations, Ridgeland Police Department, and the Forest Police Department.
Note: They actually went more than five minutes without saying *****a.
The mother told WLBT:
"I just think by them shooting into that car, they could've hit either one of the kids," said the boy's mother, who asked not to be identified. "I'm just thankful that the one that did get shot lived."
Yes, maam, one of these savages could've been hit. They used guns to rob people. That means they were prepared to kill their victims or anyone else who got in their way so if one of them got hit, oh friggin well. Sucks to be them. They exemplify a nihilistic culture in ways Sartre never imagined.
