Chicago is off to one heck of a start, with 144 violent carjackings notched in the first 21 DAYS of the year
· Jan 25, 2021 ·

Just wait until the weather gets warm!

That video above is from the 21st. So to repeat, that's 144 carjackings in the first 3 weeks of 2021. In Chicago alone.

As a reminder, carjacking is not the same thing as regular car theft. Carjacking involves forcibly removing someone from their own car -- usually at gunpoint with violence or threats of violence or murder -- and stealing their ride.

This has happened 144 times in Chicago in 21 days.

They're on pace for 2,500 carjackings this year.
