I’ve got an unusually busy day today. I plan to do some more extensive posting later in the day, but for now, I highly recommend this tale told by the Boston bombers’ carjacking victim.
It clears up quite a few mysteries, including how it could be that the bombers were so stupid as to both leave the car at once and provide the victim a golden opportunity to escape. Short answer: they didn’t. Actually, only one of them left the car, because a cash payment in the office was required in order to buy the gas, and the other remained in the vehicle with the victim but was distracted for just a brief moment. That was all the quick-thinking victim needed to make a getaway.
It’s extremely fortunate for all of us that he succeeded, and lived to tell his tale. For most of the hair-raising night, he certainly didn’t think he’d ever have a chance to do so.
