According to a news release, public safety officers responded to the AutoZone in Breckinridge Plaza about 9:20 a.m.

They found John Hartley, 49, of Elgin, S.C., who said he was in the parking lot of the business when a man approached and asked for a cigarette.

Rule #1: Always expect an

Rule #1: Always expect an attack if a male stranger approaches you in a parking lot. It's their favorite tactic to get in close and injure you when your guard is down. If one approaches you, the hair should stand up on the back of your neck and you should be prepared to parry a sucker punch or pull your gun if armed.

THER ARE NO NICE PEOPLE BUMMING CIGARETTES, MONEY, OR RIDES IN A PARKING LOT. THEY ARE MERELY SIZING YOU UP FOR THE ATTACK.

DISIEMAN GOT YOUR CAR AND YOUR POINTS

Um, he carjacked a 2006 Suzuki? Might as well go for a new Benz or Jag or Roller if you're going to commit this despicable crime.
