No, but there was an interesting story on the news about a car jack victim
in New Orleans that shot the perpetrator who may die. Under the new
anit-carjacking law there was no arrest of the victim (boy that sounds
strange). On the other hand the thrust of the news story was that the victim
was in the wrong because he invited trouble by having custom wheels on the
car costing $700 each.
