I will not start ranting about how I believe an armed society is a polite society but....if this ever happens to me, there will be a depth of hell unleashed on these punks never before seen in the streets of America. And it will happen in a fraction of a second. Real talk.

I’ve always tried to think ahead about situations like that.

I suppose the XK driver had already shut the engine off, but had it still been running… what I would’ve done is throw it in reverse and crank the wheel to the right as I floored it. If you’re lucky, you’ll suck at least one of the perps underneath while your traction control kicks in.

The whole thing is irritating though, as it appears to have been an ambush. The perps dash out after they’re parked. It makes me wonder how long they hid in the brush waiting for someone to pull in?

It was well thought out, went up both sides, stayed low so as not too be seen, rushed as doors opened.

That is right. It's things like this that raise my blood pressure so high that I get dizzy. These punks never seem to find someone like me who has dealt with situations like this for a living for over 10 years and would gladly give them what they deserve. This is textbook criminal activity and I can guarantee that this was not their first time. I can't be their first victim but I would gladly make them my next.
