No, it suggests some LEOs are just as susceptible to hoaxes as everyone's most gullible, email-forwarding relative.
Maybe I am in a minority here but how do you get a piece of paper to stick to a window? Paper, tape, glue. Is this happening outside Office Depots?

I laugh about the "I'm gonna git me a woman" response to his momma now but at the time it was freaky!!
I'll check to see what kind of paper it was but I'd suspect something as simple as a postit note paper. I've got a stack of postits right here at my computer desk.
My LEO friend told me that this had happened in the jurisdiction next to his. His brother is an LEO there & he was the one whp put the word out.
I've heard that this is a hoax months ago. Well evidently it isn't anymore. As it was suggested maybe the hoax call on the web gave some BGs the idea.

Changes I've made to the "parking lot" routine:
Either the older children buckle up the little guy or I get in the back (with doors closed) to buckle him
Purse goes inside the passenger compartment (which is locked) before I load the trunk
My purse does not contain anything of value (phone, keys, and wallet are kept on person or in pockets--makes me look like a "dude," but I'm not out to win any beauty pageants either.)
I NEVER get out of my car for ANY reason without turning off the engine and removing the keys (especially with kids inside). Car's insured, but my kids aren't replaceable.
