Polite Chicago Carjacker Becomes Even More Polite As Victim Returns to Put Him At Gunpoint

Chicago Police solve precious few carjackings. Once in a while they will catch bad guys behind the wheel of “jacked rides,” then charge them with Criminal Trespass To Motor Vehicle (CTTV). Why? Because Cook County’s prosecutor Kim Foxx views violent criminals as “victims.” However, earlier this week, CPD got their carjacker. In fact, the only thing that 18-year-old Darrius Berry didn’t have when police arrived was a bow on top of his sorry head.

See Darrius very politely carjacked a man out of his SUV at 6:30am Tuesday. He told the driver to go into his house and apologized for carjacking him.

So the driver did as he was asked – he returned to his residence. And he got his gun.

Then the car’s owner saw his car still there and walked back out. He found Darrius texting his physics professor that he would have his dissertation ready for submission on time after all. As Darrius worked those thumbs on his phone, he left his gun on the passenger seat.

At that point the car’s owner walked up and made Darrius an offer he couldn’t refuse. The owner told the media how it went down and they prolly sanitized it a little: “If you reach for it, I’ll blow your head off,” he supposedly told the tatted thug scholar in the driver’s seat.

Darrius, the polite “youth,” got out of the car very slowly and laid down on the pavement like a good boy. And he patiently waited for police to rescue him from the pissed off owner of the car.

CWB has the deets:

CHICAGO — A Chicago man turned the tables on an armed carjacker who forced him out of his car at gunpoint Tuesday morning: He walked into his nearby home, fetched his own firearm, and forced the carjacker out of his vehicle at gunpoint.

That’s according to a Chicago police report documenting the arrest of 18-year-old Darrius Berry.

Officers responding to a call of a “citizen holding an offender” in the 9400 block of South Laflin arrived to find the 39-year-old carjacking victim holding Berry at gunpoint in the street at 6:28 a.m., the report said.

They detained Berry and asked the man what happened.

He explained that he was sitting in his 2021 Mazda CX9 when Berry walked up to his driver’s window and pointed a gun at his head.

“Please give me the keys,” Berry told him, according to the report. “I need your car. I’m sorry, sir… Go in the house.”

Judge Susana Ortiz detained Berry at the request of prosecutors.

Likely for his own safety. The homeowner/car’s owner probably won’t be so patient next time.

He is charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm, misdemeanor possession of a firearm, misdemeanor driving without a license, and traffic infractions. Police also cited him for driving in reverse under unsafe conditions and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.

So carrying a loaded gun as a young man committing a forcible felony is now a misdemeanor?  The Land of Lincoln makes it a felony to carry a loaded gun in public for most people.

At the same time in Cook County, lawfully storing a lawfully possessed gun in your hotel room is strangely enough charged as a felony if you’re a law-abiding CCW holder from Iowa.

I think we all understand.
