  1. This incident did NOT take place in Tucker. The North / Central precinct is located in Tucker, which is where the media may have received the information. That is NOT the same thing as the incident actually taking place in Tucker. Responsible media would print a retraction to this information as soon as they learned that the carjacking was in an area of unincorporated DeKalb County, south of Clarkston, near the Ga. Perimeter College campus, NOT Tucker even if you wanted to base it on the ridiculous, extended boundaries that are being proposed for a vote on Nov. 3.
