Celebrating Women for the Real World

Can You Believe This?



Police officers working with the DARE program have issued this Warning:

If you are driving after dark and see and on-coming car with no headlights on, DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS AT THEM! This is a common Bloods member “initiation game” that goes like this:

The new gang member under initiation drives along with no headlights, and the first car to flash their headlights at him is now his “target”. He is now required to turn around and chase that car, then shoot and kill every individual in the vehicle in order to complete his initiation requirements. Police Depts across the nation are being warned. Their intent is to have all the new bloods nationwide drive around on Friday and Saturday nights with their headlights off. In order to be accepted into the gang, they have to shoot and kill all individuals in the first auto that does a courtesy flash to warn them that their lights are off.

Make sure you share this information with all the drivers in your family!

    Ummmmmm…. you DO know that this is an old old (OLD) story that has circulated around the entire globe, right?

    First by word of mouth before email. Then through email. It’s been changed for every city/state out there and is an urban legend.

    I see you’ve already been informed, but check out http://www.snopes.com/horrors/madmen/lightsout.asp…Snopes.com always has the low-down on the forwarded e-mails.

    You wouldn’t want to flash your lights at anyone in Houston though lest they think you’re trying to cut them off…then they’ll try to run you off the road or not let you merge onto I-10. Wait, just me that’s had that experience?

    Does sound like the Urban Legend, if they bring it up on the news then I’ll believe it.

    Although, I don’t flash my lights at people because it just seems to draw attention to police officers who missed the offender and then want to pull you over because you must be up to something bad… hee-hee. 🙂
