Funny interpretation.  All I heard said was that the car had accessories
that the car jacker may have been after.  I sure saw finger of guilt
pointed at the victim - rather it made him more of a victim because of
attempts to make his car more attractive.

I guess this is a perfect manifestation of the phenomenon of two eye
witnesses seeing totally different things!

Personally I'm glad he got shot.
