TWO WARNINGS FROM A FRIEND:
WARNING # 1
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. But when I got to my destination, I called the Police Department and they were going to check it out. But, this is what the police advised even before they went 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
vehicles 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 and 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--a woman--will be dragged into the
woods, beaten and raped, and usually left for dead. If it's a man, he's 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.
WARNING # 2
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%, AND YOU ARE THEN YOU WOULD BE FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THESE CRIMINALS.
