Ladies, this I think should be considered a PSA. I got a text from a friend of mine telling me about this. If you go anywhere, at all, ever, alone pay attention to this. If you are out alone, and you happen to see a young person crying on the road, showing you their address and asking you to take them there, take that child to the POLICE STATION! Whatever you do, DO NOT go to that address. This is a new way for gang members to gang rape women! This was reported on Fox News and CNN. I chose to put this in politics and current events because there is no warning catagory. Also, please bump this or re post. I think everyone needs to see this!

  • OK, This is what you should actually do. NEVER LET A STRANGER IN YOUR CAR EVER!!! Instead, keep your windows rolled up & call the Police from your cell phone. If you have no cell phone then drive to the nearest place to call & tell them to stay put.

  • Thank you for your consideration. I know people use young children for all sorts of criminal acts. This takes the cake.

  • Whether it is on the news or not, it is good advise and I am sure there are sickos out there who have thought of it. It comes down to never go anywhere alone if you don't know exactly what will be there.

    I'm actually surprised this is even necessary to announce!! I have NEVER considered picking up a hitch hiker or stranger and offered to drive them ANYWHERE! In this day and age, EVERYONE has a cell phone with GPS or similar technology to call for help. The only times I stop to help and I don't have my children with me are motor vehicle accidents where EMS hasn't arrived and maybe only one other responder like a police officer.
