STATE POLICE WARNING
Body: ----------------- Bulletin
Body: DON'T FLASH HEADLIGHTS AT ANY CAR
WITH NO LIGHTS ON!!!!
Police officers working with the DARE
program have issued this Warning:
If you are driving after dark and see
an on-coming car with no
headlights on, DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS
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
Police departments 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!? Please forward this
message to all your friends and
family members to inform them about
this initiation ritual.
