When I was 15 carjacking wasn’t even remotely on my radar…

Much less carjacking at midnight on Christmas Eve! Jesus Christ, where are this kid’s parents? Send them to jail, too.

Uh, I’m betting the parents are either absent or in jail too.

Who told you you had to be white to promote Eurocentric view I just told you my theory whether you agreed or not that what I am interested about. I am African. I meet Africans in Africa that truly believed in the superiority of the white race. I am lucky enough to have experienced the world and grew up around a large variety of people from all classes and religion.

Doesn’t dc require you to register pepper spray as a weapon if purchased in Dc? So how is that incident labeled as “unarmed”

Can you purchase that in DC? Amazon refused to deliver to my house and I had to pick it up outside the city.

I thought I saw pepper spray behind the counter at Annie’s/Ace Petworth


otter111a t1_j5x8ihq wrote

I think the laws have changed in the past few years. It used to be that if you purchased in the district you had to register it. When I first moved to Dc I tried to register it at a police station and they had no idea what I was talking about.

Now, however, I don’t think you need to register it and it’s lawful to carry for self defense only.

It’s possible Amazon hasn’t updated their restrictions to match current laws.

Here’s Sabre’s website with outdated info

What other possible use is there for it lmao

You can't carry anything to use as an offensive weapon sooo

posam t1_j5yf7iy wrote

I’m all for doing things differently but as is the only reforms that seem to happen across the US is police and justice system reform.

They are at the back end of the problem and cannot just be dropped and have enforcement minimized without following through on more comprehensive changes that result in people getting to that layer of the issue in the first place.

>prisons so that they are truly rehabilitative

Yeah... that's the important one, and also the hardest


mikitronz t1_j5z1z0q wrote

Deterrence requires a cost benefit analysis that children do not do. Making laws more and more draconian will therefore not help. Rehabilitation is not remotely possible at current spending levels and I don't think we're willing to do it at any spending level.

He will get a slap on the wrist just to be let out again and go around committing more crimes I’m sure.


indefinitude t1_j5z8850 wrote

I hear the same thing every time a carjacker is arrested in DC. Is this a real thing? Do people actually get charged and released immediately?


Enzo_Gorlahmi t1_j5ztgaq wrote

Unfortunately it happens often. Read up on the Youth Rehabilitation Act, which allows judges to disregard sentencing guidelines, can expunge the records from public record, and now can be applied for offenders up to age 25 because the DC Council raised the applicable age range.

This 23yo, who was on probation for armed offenses, had an illegal firearm that was misplaced, ended up paralyzing a 4 year-old girl and he got sentenced to 18 months + probation after leaving her to die while he went to hide the gun instead of helping her.

The YRA and other similar criminal reform laws are often constructed with good intentions but all too often sentencing leniency in the District is granted to repeat offenders, violent crimes, or crimes involving a firearm. Excluding gun offenders or violent crimes from the YRA or asking for transparent public records isn't a crazy ask from our community.


RoosterInMyRrari t1_j5z8u6l wrote

Yes. Especially if they are < 18. They’ll get a slap on the wrist (community service, very short Juvy sentencing, etc)


pro-laps t1_j5yim2e wrote

I wish there was some follow up news or posts about what ends up happening after these kids our arrested.

Either confirm or disprove the slap on the wrist narrative

NewUser22031 t1_j5ymaqj wrote

I like the idea and someone else can correct me if wrong, but I would think that would be next to impossible due to the perpetrators being underage.


milkandminnows t1_j5yo09a wrote

Details could be anonymized. But I too am not privy to the actual restrictions in question.


Evening_Chemist_2367 t1_j5zmq3m wrote

Serious serial offenses (like multiple armed carjackings and robberies) should automatically disqualify from being tried as a juvenile. The only possible leniency should be able to be realized conditionally via a plea deal based on information that actually results in arrest and conviction of the people he got the gun from, as well as the people who he was planning to deliver the stolen vehicles to. No arrests and convictions on those, no deal.

There is no abstract socioeconomic circumstance that forces a teenager to commit multiple violent carjackings. It is learned behavior.

But yeah dog. It’s all on him and his parents let’s not think any further than that

He learned it from parents, friends, peers, or violent criminals he sees in the media and has been taught to respect and mimic.

99% of people in society aren’t violent carjackers.

Were you not capable of reading a list of people who are responsible for influencing the kid's behavior? Or did you deliberately decide to ignore it?
