    Gang Initiation (new prank ? ) ....... shoot someone in Walmart

    There was a 'story' going among local law enforcement today, that they had heard there was a plan for 3 members of a gang (as part of their initiation) to go into Walmart "today"... and they had to shoot 3 women.

    I personally, think it was a prank ...... to see if they could get a rise and keep everyone out of Walmart for a day. Like the idiots that do bomb threats.

    So, I have some of them calling me and telling me NOT to go into Walmart today. My response was, it's BS, besides...... would they go into a place with all of those cameras that could get good pictures of them for an initiation ? NOT !! Anyway, I told them I would be sure to carry my XD and a 3 xtra 16 shot mags.... if I went to Walmart today.

    And, obviously.... nothing happened. It got me wondering about how many CC holders they might run into if they actually did something this stupid.........

    Wondered if anyone else has heard this going around where you live....

    Heck, I'm always vigilante when I'm at Walmart anyway, especially the parking lot.

    It made the rounds here as a text msg forward. CSPD debunked the rumor quickly through local media.

    The thing is with such reports, and I agree with others that this is total B.S., but even if such report were true... You never really know for sure, what day or time some gang would pull a stunt like that.

    Even street gangs use logistics and you would never know with 100% certainty if some plan got changed, postponed or moved forward.

    Obviously if threats are credible and you have forewarning of something, the responsible thing to do is to avoid being in a place where violence is going to take place.

    But with all these hoaxes and stuff floating around on the internet or even rumors, you have to take some things with a grain of salt and continue to live your life as usual. Otherwise, you are giving in to fear and are letting fear rule your life.

    If you carry a gun, you should always be at least at condition yellow. With a situational awareness high enough to allow you to spot trouble brewing and give you a chance to either avoid it all together or formulate an action plan to deal with it, hopefully you can survive being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    First I've heard of something like this, but we should remember that people do stupid things for stupid reasons.
    If at WalMart, at least there will be some 'big' people to hide behing...

    A rumor? Darn it! I saw myself standing right outside the WalMart and hearing inside my head:

    "Shooter. Do you understand the Course of Fire? Nod when ready."
    "Shooter is ready. Stand By!"
    "Beeep!"
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Gang Initiation (new prank ? ) ....... shoot someone in Walmart

    Funny, we had a similar "prank initiation" warning here in southeast Ga.
    Police got a callout even. Nothing happened, no supisious activity, nothing.

    It was Wally-World as normal.
