A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL
STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, JACKSON, MS...
While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw
an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it.
For whatever reason, 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 CantonPD and they were going to check it out. But, this is
what the Police advised even before they went out there to check....
"There are several things to be aware of...gangs and thieves are now
plotting different ways to get a person (mostly women) to stop their
vehicle and get out of the car.
"There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police Department
where 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 abandoned baby.
"Note that the location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or
grassy (field) area and the person--woman -- will be dragged into the
woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man,
they are usually beaten and robbed and maybe left for dead, too.
DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON!!!
DIAL 9-1-1 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW,
BUT DON 'T EVEN SLOW DOWN.
"IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD,
DO NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, 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 THESE CRIMINALS.
THIS IS A NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS,
SO PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.
THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE ARE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS
WHO WILL TAKE DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."
Please talk to your loved ones about this.
This is a new tactic used.
Please be safe.
Get started NOW -- SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES
TO BE CAREFUL AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING AROUND THEM, SO AS NOT
TO BECOME A VICTIM.
I NEVER would've considered NOT turning on the wipers to try and clear my windshied! What about you???
