A Memphis woman is furious after she discovered the 10-year-old who stuck a gun in her face and stole her car is back out on the streets.
“He put the gun between my eyes and told me, ‘look me in my eyes’, with the gun, and told me to get out the car,” she said. “It was scary, but I got sense, baby. I slid out that car like Jello. I told him to be careful,” the furious victim told television station WREG.
She said that four children – including the 10-year-old, carjacked her 2012 Infiniti in North Memphis. The suspects were arrested weeks later, but were quickly released.
“You mean to tell me that children can actually go, and carjack people and you release them immediately?” the woman told the television station.
Unfortunately, this is what happens when a city elects a radical district attorney and a city council that is more sympathetic to criminals than victims.
In a separate incident, a grandmother was carjacked by a gang of pistol-packing children outside a Memphis hotel.
Linda Orange told television station WREG that one of the young thugs pointed a gun at her head while another thug aimed a gun at her seven-year-old grandchild.
“Next thing I know another guy had hopped out of an SUV…I just saw him reach over and point a gun to my head… and the third guy went around and pointed a gun to my grandbaby head,” Orange said.
Tkai Gardner, 18, was arrested and charged with carjacking, aggravated robbery and reckless endangerment. He faces four felony charges and several misdemeanor charges.
And yet a judge granted $10,000 bail.
“I’m just blessed to get out with my life and blessed to have my grandbaby still here,” the grandmother told the television station.
