I received an email with this information and wanted to make you all aware of this.
A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL STATE OF MICHIGAN :
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 Canton PD 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're 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.
Oh yea, about those EGGS:
IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD, DO NOT STOP TO CHECK YOUR CAR, DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPERS 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 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 being used. Please be safe.
WARNING # 3:
Some knew about the red light on cars, but not Dialing 112 It was about 1pm in the afternoon and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her to never pull over for an unmarked car, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc. Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called, 211 on her cell to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher there was an unmarked car with flashing red lights on behind her. They checked to see if there were police cars where she said and there weren't, so she told her to keep driving and remained calm, the dispatcher sent backup. Ten min. later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car. They pulled the guy in the car and we was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes. I never knew about the 112 cell phone feature.
112 is a direct link to state trooper info. This applies to all 50 states.
