I suppose it would be clearly justifiable if the carjacker shot the
woman in the head, but maybe not. 8^(
We've had one of those up here in Philly where the carjacker just shot
the car owner anyway, after getting the car. Same as with some muggings,
if you don't have enough cash to satisfy the mugger.
