What happens when an 18-year-old thug brings his old, inferior S&W Sigma 9mm (but it has a laser!) to attempt a carjacking of trained U.S. Marshals guarding Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s residence in Washington, D.C.? Suffice it to say things didn’t go well for Kentrell Flowers. He got himself shot and his gun taken away.

So much for a brand new ride on this night.  Maybe he should have gone to summer school instead of taking a carjacking apprenticeship to go along with his pre-med studies at Georgetown.

Just kidding about Georgetown.

The NY Post has the dirty details about the crime that lies just beneath the picturesque parts of Washington D.C.:

A deputy U.S. Marshal shot a would-be carjacker who pulled a gun on him while he was guarding Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s home in Washington, DC, authorities said.

Two deputies were parked outside Sotomayor’s home in northwest DC on July 5 when Kentrell Flowers, 18, allegedly walked up to one of their cars around 1:15 a.m. and pointed a gun at the bodyguard, the U.S. Marshals Service told The Post.

Mr. Flowers will likely survive his wounds.

For those who don’t have long memories, David Harsanyi notes on X how the same Justice Sotomayor sided with the dissent in the landmark McDonald decision that the little people in America – people like you and me – have no right to armed self-defense.

Easy to make such pronouncements when you get a protective detail watching over you and your family 24/7, which most of us don’t.

The Post also mentions a couple of other high-profile carjacking-related shootings that happened in DC in recent months.

In November, Secret Service Agents protecting President Biden’s granddaughter Naomi opened fire on a group of carjackers who were trying to break into an unmarked Secret Service vehicle just before midnight in Georgetown.

In January, former Trump administration official Mike Gill was fatally wounded by a carjacker as he sat in his vehicle on K Street at about 5:45 p.m.

The Secret Service has a protective detail on Biden’s granddaughter Naomi?  Does Hunter’s baby with the stripper gal also enjoy a protective detail?  Somehow I doubt it.
