Watch the calmest, politest carjacking in world history
· · Jan 25, 2023 ·

I'm sorta of the mind that carjackers and other violent criminals should maybe have their thumbs cut off and be sentence to 15 years of hard labor. Tough, but fair.

Still, if you're going to get jacked, you could do worse than this:

The victim, 36, was walking in the 600 block of West 29th Street [in Chicago] when the three men confronted him around 7:35 p.m., a Chicago police spokesperson said. Video shows two robbers displaying handguns and a third sprinting across the street with a rifle. ...

"You got keys?" one of them asks before agreeing to hold the victim's pizzas so the man can dig his keys out of his pocket.

"You good?" a carjacker asks, returning the pizzas after the man surrenders the keys.

"I'm good," he replies.

"All right, thank you," replies one.

You got to love it — as polite as the criminals were, the victim was even politer:

"Thank you, sir," says another.

"You betcha," replies the victim as he takes a long drag from a cigarette, then walks away.

Okay, these guys should still get hard labor but they can keep their thumbs for being so nice.
