Atlanta Woman Fights Off 2 Men Attempting To Carjack Her
An Atlanta woman survived a harrowing carjacking by bravely fighting back against her attackers. This could have gone WAY left and left most folks angry and upset, but according to 11Alive she’s not mad, in fact, she has love for the men…
The woman who fought back two armed carjackers has a message for them: “You’ve done something bad, but that doesn’t make you a bad person.”
Surveillance video shows Jasmine Warren fighting off two young men as they punched, pushed, and dragged her from her car. She refused to give in. She told 11Alive’s Duffie Dixon she made that decision as soon as the attack started.
“This young man came up to me with a gun in my face, and in that very instant, I knew I wanted to do something about it. I wasn’t going to let him try to take my stuff from me,” she said.
“They were just as scared as I was. When I looked at that little boy’s eyes he was just as scared as me,” she said. “Honestly he was fumbling. It was a lot.”
One of the men did point the gun at her. Warren isn’t sure what could have happened.
“As many times as he kept saying that he was going to do it, he didn’t do it. He wouldn’t do it,” she said. “So I don’t know if the gun was loaded, you know you never really know.”
Right. You never really know, which is why this was an EXTREMELY poor decision. Please, people, don’t ever ever do this. Seriously.
Jasmine must be a regular at church because she offered this message to her would-be carjackers:
“You’re wrong for trying to rob from me. It’s not the end of the world for you. It doesn’t mean that you can’t change and make changes in your life,” she said. “It’s up to you and I’m willing to help you make those changes. It doesn’t make you a bad person. You’ve done something bad but you can always be forgiven for it.”
“I understand ya’ll wanted to rob and take from me, but I care for you and I still would like the help you whatever it takes. I just want to help you,” she said. “Make it better for yourself.”
We’re glad Jasmine lived to tell this story. You could even say her attitude toward her assailants is admirable, but BOY was this stupid.
