In one of those feel good stories that the lamestream media assures you never happens, a carjacker was stopped dead in his tracks (literally) when he decided to jack a car in the wrong parking lot.
In a Macy’s parking lot in Orem, Utah, about 40 miles outside of Salt Lake City, Taulagi Matafeo thought it would be a good idea to carjack a woman that he saw in a Mercedes SUV. Matafeo forced his way into the car with the woman inside and the woman began to scream.
Unfortunately, the woman was unarmed and Matafeo was getting close to success until a good Samaritan (WITH A GUN) decided to intervene.
Matafeo leapt out of the car to attack this unnamed savior and was shot once in the chest. He would later die at the hospital.
To me, the unnamed 31 year old man is a hero who probably saved this woman’s life.
The police of Orem, UT agree.
Police Capt. Ned Jackson had this to say:
“He’s trying to assist this lady whose car is being stolen. He was fighting with her. He was trying to protect her. Then at the point the suspect comes to him, and he’s trying to take the gun from him, then he’s trying to protect himself.”
Of course, the carjackers family is pissing on everyone’s leg and trying to convince them its raining saying that Matafeo was a “defenseless victim.”
