  1. Again, it's irresponsible to repost something from Facebook and pass it off at news. Guess monrovianow got its journalism ethics from Rolling Stones magazine.

    1. I hope you are kidding. This is a local, informational blog, not a news outlet.

  2. It is spreading false information. Check crimemapping.Com. no carjacking happened. The headline to this "blog" says womans car highjacked, son almost taken, which is an outright lie. Have some integrity.
    What a joke.

  3. Yes, Michael, it happened. See this Monrovia Police report: Was it a carjacking? I think so: According to this dictionary ( ) carjacking is "the taking of an occupied automobile by force," and since the son was in the car (though thankfully he escaped), it was occupied.
