Criminals are so dumb. Imagine how dumb (and desperate) a thug carjacker would have to be to try and take an angry Texas mom’s vehicle that contained her two toddler children?
That’s exactly what happened in Dallas this week and it sent a message far and wide to would-be criminals that armed Americans are SICK and TIRED of being victims. Good guys with guns are shooting bad guys with guns all over the country, and that’s exactly how it should be.
On Wednesday night, a woman in Dallas, Texas, rescued her two toddlers after a man jumped into her SUV and tried to drive away with them. Michelle Booker-Hicks jumped into the passenger seat and ordered the man to stop the car. When he refused, she reached into the glove box, pulled out a gun and shot him in the head, causing him to drive into a utility pole.
Michelle Booker-Hicks said she was paying for gas at a Shell gas station around 10 p.m. Wednesday when the suspect climbed inside her SUV and tried to carjack the car with her two little boys. Booker-Hicks told KDFW, “I should have emptied the whole clip, but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him a warning shot. That was it. I’m not a killer or anything like that but I do believe in defending what’s mine.”
The woman and the children were uninjured.
The man was transported to a hospital; his injuries were not considered life-threatening. He will be charged with kidnapping, breaking and entering, and robbery.
