BE ALERT: Wayne County Sheriff's Department - VERY IMPORTANT TO READ .

On the way to Canton , driving on Michigan Avenue , on Thursday morning,
I saw an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped
over it. 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. This is what I was
told...

"Several things to be aware of .. gangs and thieves, are now plotting
different ways to get a person to "stop" their vehicle.

"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 REPORT WHAT YOU SAW.

"IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD. 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% YOU ARE THEN
FORCED TO STOP BESIDE THE ROAD AND BECOME A VICTIM OF THIEVES. THIS IS A
NEW TECHNIQUE USED BY GANGS. PLEASE INFORM YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.
THESE ARE DESPERATE TIMES AND THESE UNSAVORY INDIVIDUALS WILL TAKE
DESPERATE MEASURES TO GET WHAT THEY WANT."

Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a new tactic used
and I would hate for anyone to fall victim to this kind of crime.

Please be safe

This is a spam email. Please stop reporting it as fact. It disturbs me to no end that people seem to get a kick out of writing and disseminating spam emails that make women fearful. Yes, there are a number of things that women need to be concerned about, but every time something like this is put forward as a legitimate issue, it takes the place of something else that might actually be useful to a woman in an emergency. Please, though, don't take my word for it, please go to the linked webpages to look at the discussion there. The emails are identical.
