Exclamation Don't Flash Headlights At Any Car With No Lights On!!

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 and on-coming car with no headlights on,
DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS AT THEM!

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 requirements. Police Depts 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

Do you happen to read Snopes? This is the urban legend of all urban legends.

Re: Don't Flash Headlights At Any Car With No Lights On!!

Is there any chance these yahoo's would be in backwater Indiana? Oh please oh please let them try, I'd be glad to introduce the c#cksuckers to "my little friend" Mr. 12 guage pump or his sidekick Kel-Tec .380. There are alot more wolves then sheep around here, we now have a lifetime concealed carry permit in Indiana. BTW thanks for the heads up! Late edit: Air2air: If I was in Cali, we'd be cruisin!

Congratulations! You have been sucked in by a classic urban legend. I have been hearing this one for like 20 years or so. Sorry.
