Father Chases Down Thief Who Steals Vehicle With His Children Inside It, Then Beats Him to Death

SKILLS. A particular set of skills.

The woman left her three young children inside the running car as she went inside to visit her boyfriend, who was an employee at the restaurant and the father of two of the kids, police said.

Suddenly, a 54-year-old man jumped into her car and sped off with the children, who are between the ages of 7 months and 5 years old, strapped inside, according to investigators.

The woman's boyfriend ran after the thief, police said. The man drove about half a block before getting stuck in traffic at 29th and York streets, officials said.

The kids' father then pulled the thief out of the car and beat him as other bystanders in the area joined the attack, according to investigators.

Medics responded to the scene and found the car thief unconscious with severe injuries to the head and face. He was taken to Temple University Hospital and pronounced dead shortly after 10 p.m.

The police and DA are weighing whether to charge the man, but I assume that's a formality. When you have bystanders joining in to beat a thief to death, that's a pretty good sign that the jury pool doesn't care much about the thief's death.
