A 22-year-old East Orange woman was in critical condition at University Hospital in Newark last night, after she was shot once in the head in a carjacking that originated in East Orange, police said.
She was found in a red Dodge Magnum in a Newark parking lot around 7 a.m., a half-hour after the carjacking was reported to police.

The car was found in Newark in a commercial parking lot on South Orange Avenue near Sanford Place. A black male wearing a camouflage jacket and blue jeans was seen fleeing from the scene.
Newark police are requesting anyone with information to call (973) 733-4339.

Very sad....It always disgusts me to hear about things like this....
One question though, why was the car still there if this was a car jacking? Aren't you supposed to take the car when you car jack someone? Hmmmm

undertaker - that's my point. the crooks carry anyway, and the 'honest people' don't stand a chance. i have 4 inches of serrated gerber that might help if i'm jacked at knifepoint... if he has a gun, well, clearly i shouldn't stand between him and my hard-earned car!

My Magnum is my replacement vehicle after my Xterra was stolen out of my driveway this past November. Insurance company dragged their a$$ completing the claim ... they finally paid me at the end of January.
As far as being Carjacked I'd let them have it even though I carry a small arsenal (sp) of various weapons in my Magnum.
Does anyone have Lo-Jack or something similar? I've been considering Lo-Jack not only for vehicle return but the 30% insurance discount.

Might be a reason to put some black tape over the vin#

if he's cutting keys off of vins, he works for, or has an in who works for, daimler-chrysler... there should be a lot of people going to jail if that was the case. we had an '88 caprice in absolutely immaculate condition, full options, stolen less than 48 hours after we bought it off of my great uncle's estate. on the plus side, the insurance paid us way more than the car cost us due to it coming from family, but it still only got a '91 cavalier instead. **sidetrack** is that 30% insurance discount pretty much an industry standard for lojack? hell, i'll install it next week!

Black tape or a small piece of Vinyl over the VIN is a good idea.

As far as the 30% discount, I don't think its that high for the complete premium. However, the way Ins. Co's itemize everything, it could be 30% of a particular line item.

When we got it on a 4Runner (about 7 years ago) and purchased LoJack our premium discount was almost not worth it.

I was wondering about that, with the security key...

Once people can no longer hotwire a car, it just means that
if they want it, they have to carjack it from you...

So in some ways, the security of the car makes it more
dangerous to you personally...

Covering up your VIN is illegal in every state.. so I'd be weary that you only cover it when you park and pull it off when you drive JIC you get pulled over and the cop tries to read it....
