News Question

Howdy All.

Just wondering if anyone's heard of a story in the news lately of someone's thumb being chopped off in order for someone to steal his car that had biometric security on it? I'm kicking myself because I can't remember the source, but I did see this reported somewhere. Pretty good case for two-factor security!!
