    Gang initiation - Be careful

    I'm not sure if this is urban legend or not but it seemed to come from a credible source. Better safe than sorry.




    Sent to me from a friend of mine at Wayne County- *be safe!!

    Subject:* Ladies please take note of the following gang initiation tactic, please discuss with female colleagues who do not have email*

    Team, Recently sent to me:*

    On the way to Canton , driving on Michigan Avenue , on Thursday morning,*I saw*an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. *I did not stop, even though I*had all kinds of thoughts running through my head. *But when I got to my destination, I called the* Canton PD and they were going to check it out.**This is what I was told...**
    **
    "Several things to be aware of .. gangs and*thieves,*are now plotting different ways to get a person to "stop" their vehicle.*
    *
    "There is a gang initiation reported by the local police department that gangs are placing a car seat by the road...with a fake baby in it...waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the baby. *Note that the location of this car seat will usually be beside a wooded or grassy (field) area ...and the person - woman - will be dragged into the woods- beaten and raped- usually left for dead. * DO NOT STOP . DIAL 9-1-1 AND*REPORT WHAT YOU SAW.*
    *
    "IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD. DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND DO NOT SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5% *YOU ARE THEN FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THIEVES. THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS. PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES. *THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WILL TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."*
    *
    Please talk to your loved ones about this.* This is a new tactic used and I would hate for anyone to fall victim to this kind of crime.*
    *
    Please be safe*

    These forwards are almost always false (names and places changed and passed on year to year)...however... one should always be aware of surroundings

    I figured that it was fake but I haven't heard about the egg scenario previously. I figured that if it helps 1 person become more aware of their surroundings than what can it hurt to throw it out there. The gang initiation emails have circulated for year . . . Don't flash your brights . . .

    I'd say it was a hoax, too. Who in their right mind works the numbers to determine that visibility through a windshield drops "92.5%" of the time when hit with eggs then water? Motor oil and eggs might make mayonnaise, too, and that would make visibility hard.

    Situational awareness is never a bad thing, while the lack of it surely is.

    My wife said that she was going to cut back on using the credit card...I contacted Snopes...this was false information, I should have known.
