JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- "Malinda Samuel, a Jacksonville native, has been in car accidents before, but she says the experience she had in her car on Tuesday was far worse than a car accident.
Samuel was parked in front of her friend's house, with her friend in the passenger seat. She said they were chatting with the windows down, when two teenagers rushed over and pointed a gun at her friend through the window.
"All of a sudden, I went from talking to my friend to my life being threatened," Samuel said.
Samuel's friend gave up her purse, then Samuel yelled the only thing she could think of: "Take the purse, don't shoot us and go on."
Thankfully, the teenagers did. They got away with the purse, but Samuel and her friend were physically fine. However, mentally, they were shaken because of something they saw on one of the teen's faces.
"There was murder in that little boy's eye," Samuel said. "It was so sad to see. He had no respect of life. Our life was worth nothing."
Ma'am? You can legally keep a gun in your car. No license necessary. Next time someone with murder in his eyes approaches your vehicle, then do the right thing and defend yourself.
I'm just saying.
Oh, and by the by; it would have been nice to include a DESCRIPTION of the skel.
