An SUV, a carjacking, and the things we hold dear

The story of an attempted carjacking in Milwaukee provides us one of those “what would I do?” opportunities that the news cycle occasionally provides.

Melissa Smith stopped at a gas station to fill up when a man tried to steal it.

She was having none of it.

There’s a fair amount of instinct here, of course, because a car isn’t worth what can happen to a person in a situation like this.

“This is not happening to me today,” she told WTMJ about her thought process.

Tip: When filling up your car, take your keys with you.
