Public safety!!

I just wanted to make some of us aware of something i heard!!

This was in a memo and not just speculation.

Apparently police fighting against gang crime....in particularly in London and Manchester......have advised people to be aware of the latest initiation some people are doing to join a gang!! Apparently they have to drive around at night deliberately with no headlights on and the first person that either flashes,toots or waves at them they have to follow that car and fire a bullet into it, regardless of who is in it

Just want our family here to be careful and safe....particularly as we have a few members in those areas

Re: Public safety!!

i hear they are putting needles with aids on them in movie theater chairs and the return-coin slots in payphones as well .

not making fun, but those internet stories have been around for years over here. i remember the headlights thing when i was about 18 years old (long time ago).

You never know what people will do.

I have heard crazier things that have happened, so I would not rule out his heads up.

It really is nothing to worry about, it's already been proven to be false. Besides, gang members aren't even smart enough to hold guns the right way, so it's not like they'd be able to hit anything.

Re: Public safety!!

Just because we are lacking behind the "good ol' us of a" in violent gun crime and street gang culture doesn't mean we can't look out for each other over here

Forgive me for giving a sh*t!!

Re: Public safety!!

It's not that you lack in street gang culture. Dont you have soccer hooligans?
Its just that your urban legends are a little behind the times.

I didn't mean to offend (if I did), I was just saying that it's an urban legend, and that there's no reason to be upset.

Re: Public safety!!

Well there is a huge uprising in gang violence these days over here and it has to be remembered that we don't live in a paranoid country where every household sleeps with a gun under their bed!!!

I do keep guns in my house, not because I'm paranoid, rather just as a precaution. No reason to insult us, now.

Re: Public safety!!

A precaution for what??

My original post was innocent. If people want to bite and make fun of it then i have the right to bite back! That's not insulting!
