A shopper struck back at the man who tried to rob her in the parking lot of a Joliet Wal-Mart, driving after him and hitting him with her car before he got away, police said.

Joliet police Cmdr. Al Roechner said the woman had just finished putting groceries into her silver Pontiac about 10 p.m. at the store at 2424 W. Jefferson St. when Byron J. Adams, 31, of Joliet approached her and demanded her purse.

When she said she didnít have one Adams took out a handgun, but the woman ignored him and started to drive away, Roechner said. The woman apparently got angry, though, and decided to chase after Adams with her car, Roechner said.

She succeeded in hitting him, but he was able to run away. He was unarmed when he was found nearby, and he did not require medical treatment, Roechner said. He was charged with armed robbery.

The story doesn't say what kind of Pontiac it was.
Hopefully it didn't have one of those "high-horsepower assault engines". :yes1:

We need common sense legislation to regulate cams!

This will lead to a renewal of the 1984 Trans-Am ban.

No no no... you are going about it all wrong, we should allow people to have cars. Banning cars is just wrong. Now the tires on the other hand...

What about the children? The children!!!! If we are to prevent drive-by crimes, we need to get rid of the main vehicle in the crime: the car! Then, there would never be any more drive-by crimes EVER.

I hope she didn't have any of those big tires on her car. There is no reason to have tires as big as some of them are. I mean , some of them are 10 inches wide.:frantics:

We need to go after motor scooters too, in some Asian country they have drive by slashings done by people on scooters. Lets do it For The Children.

How many people can fit in this car? Why does anyone need a high capacity car? Let's ban them FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN! Where's the Rev. Jesse Jackson when you need him? Somebody quick -- Call Father Snuffy!

I understand GM has stopped production of Pontiacs or will soon, so no Black Pontiac ban legislation is needed. Maybe a new "stimulus plan" will be introduced to take existing "Assault Pontiacs" off the road.

Those might be classified as SATURDAY NIGHT AFTERNOON SPECIALS.
