One of my mom's co-workers was carjacked at DeKalb Mall. The carjackers told her she had to come with them. She told them they'd have to kill her first. They took off with just the car. Co-worker is an older woman with hypertension. She hasn't been back to work since the incident.





Stay safe and start carrying something a little bigger than you're used to.

So you're carrying what, a howitzer?

You are taking your life in your own hands whenever you shop anywhere that has Dekalb in the name.

I'm glad it wasn't any worse than it was.

Dual S&W 500's?  UZI backup in jacket?  Ferret in ankle holster as last defense?

T-minus 90-days or so till I get my handgun permit.  Shit like this would not end well if only more people would carry.

Well apparently the attacker was armed. It's not just carrying it's the right mindset not to get trapped in the first place.

North or South Dekalb Mall, not that it really matters since the same clientele from South Dekalb frequents both malls now.
