Honestly I don’t weep or feel sorry for the kids involved in this:
A boy, who was a passenger in the carjacked vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three juvenile occupants in the vehicle were apprehended at the scene by Irvington officers. They were a 14-year-old, a 15-year-old and a 17-year old.
Except it goes from bad to all around unpossible.
Underage minors can’t legally have a firearm. Carjacking is against the law as well. So is threatening someone with a weapon. Why didn’t the law stop them?
It’s almost as if the law is merely a tool to punish bad behavior. Nah, that couldn’t be it because the anti-rights cultists keep insisting laws help prevent and stop violence. Never mind the fact they merely provide a method of punishment.
Bummer for the car owner that probably now has a totaled Jaguar. It’s a good thing that NYC is so restrictive on their distribution of Concealed Pistol Licenses as well. That car owner could have effectively defended his life and property from those kids wielding an illegal weapon. It’s a good thing someone else made the decision for that car owner to disarm him.*
*If you can’t tell, I’m being sarcastic the fact is it is not the states job or role to tell be how they should be defending themselves and their property. The state carries no liability when you’re shot by a carjacker so what right do they have to sit in the back and force you to be shot?

Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
