    Don't know if this is true or not but be careful. Just received from my sister-in-law in Florida.

    Subject: FW: Read...new gang inititiation targeting woman

    Passed along by Police Department & Courthouse
    Several things to be aware of this year...as gangs and robbers are now plotting different ways to get a person to "stop" their vehicle.

    Please send to your friends.
    There is a gang initiation reported by the local police department that 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 baby...
    Note that the location of this car seat will usually be beside a wooded or grassy (field) area ...and the person - woman – will be dragged into the woods- beaten and raped- usually left for dead.
    DO NOT STOP. DIAL 9-1-1 AND INFORM THEM.....

    IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD.
    DO NOT OPERATE THE WIPER AND SPRAY ANY WATER BECAUSE EGGS MIXED WITH
    WATER BECOME MILKY AND BLOCK YOUR VISION UP TO 92.5% SO YOU ARE FORCED
    TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF ROBBERS. THIS IS A NEW
    TECHNIQUE USED BY ROBBERS.
    PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES

    Deplorable Bitter Clinger in Liberal La La Land
    Snopes really has to be taken with a grain of salt. It is run by liberals who have have cherry picked their facts on several issues. One example was a lengthy list of facts about Obama. Yes, some of these facts were false. But the majority were outright true or had a pretty good basis in fact. Yet Snopes labeled the entire email list as not true by cherry picking a few examples and ignoring the true ones. Snopes is not now, nor ever has been, the last word on what the facts are. I'm not saying to not use Snopes, but keep your eyes open and it would not hurt to get further verification.

    Snopes has at least the credibility of a politician or used car salesman.

    I tried truthorfiction first and they had no info on it. I was just passing on what I found,,,,not whether it was right or wrong....

    abbielew, if your post was directed at me,,,,then post the linked article in a major magazine or news source,,,,just be careful before you go shouting from the mountaintop or you may be considered a loon....

    Sorry if I put your home town in a bad light Mike, I'm pretty fond of my little Hicksville though.

    Royce also reminded me that the proper name for my Hicksville is Fallabama:) -
