A friend sent me this in an email, I do not know the validity of the info, but I know it make sense to be aware that we live in a dangerous world with unscrupulous individuals who have no regard for human life.
 A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL STATE OF MISSISSIPPI ,


 JACKSON , MS ..

 SITUATION...
 ...

 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 911 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, BUT
 DON 'T EVEN SLOW DOWN. "IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND EGGS ARE THROWN AT YOUR WINDSHIELD, DO  NOT STOP TO CHECK THE CAR, 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%, 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 used. Please be safe. SEND THIS MESSAGE TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES TO BE CAREFUL AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING AROUND THEM SO AS NOT TO BECOME A VICTIM.

While no one is saying that you shouldn't be safe, this is just another crock story that aims to scare women through email. Please read the attached snopes.com information.

May be true Ryan, but better safe than sorry. There are a lot of evil, violent people in the world.
