    Be aware of Church Vans!

    Two robbers jump out of a van labeled "Church Van" and rob people at gun point.

    Now I finally know why crime is so high around here even though we got a church at every corner :-)

    (oh... and I can't wait to hear the next story about people calling in all church vans. They got tons of them here... remember the search for a "white van" in the DC sniper case?)

    This would'nt be a new tactic of the Jehova's Witnesses would it? Sometimes you feel as if you were mugged after fighting them off.

    I definitely remember the white van thing as I'm close enough to DC. The traffic was horrendous because they started searching all white vans on the highway and things like that.

    I never really did believe the white van theory, for some reason it just didn't seem right. Not to mention as soon as the "white van" hit the news they could of switched vehicles anyway.

    This just shows that just because something is usually safe, doesn't mean it will always be safe.

    So, if I paint "Hoodie Helper" on my car, it'll keep the bogey men away?

    they must have been "short" at the collection plate that morning and trying to make up the deficit...
