I got this e mail from my cam grinder..I feel i must share it.
VERY IMPORTANT - NOT A JOKE!!!


Do not know if you knew about eggs mixed with water....... Therefore sending this on.

A MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL
STATE OF MICHIGAN :

SITUATION...
While driving on a rural end of the roadway on a 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 9-1-1 AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, 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.

Get started NOW -- 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.

WARNING # 2


Some knew about the red light on cars, but not the 112.
It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind herand put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road,but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe place.

*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info.So, now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112.

You may want to send this to every woman (and man) you know; it may save a life.

This applies to ALL 50 states
PLEASE PASS ALONG TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY, IT CAN SAVE A LIFE....

Semi confirmed. If your phone is GSM, 1-1-2 automaitically redirects to 9-1-1. If you are not GSM (and even if you are) use 911 first.

The baby seat, web rumor, has been around for quite a while, before that it was flashing your high beams rumor and the red light on a car been around since cops have had cars.

The 112 is new to me, I think 1911 is more useful though.

The flashing your hi beams hoax, has been around since before 1950. I expect that it was started by the police because prior to that time, it was used as a signal to traffic on the other side of the road that they were approaching a speed trap. ( My conspiracy theory: Just because I am cynical doesn't mean I'm wrong. )

I still get emails about twice a year warning me not to flash my high beams or I will get beat up.

They are

if they catch them, they get to pray five times a day, special meals prepared for them, exercise equipment and TV time, best medical care the taxpayers can provide.

this is such a deterrent, no wonder they have a waiting line for prisons.

Yep, I think they should do the 3 strikes rule and you are OUT!!! You get 3 felonies and you get a .22 round through the back of your skull. People will say...what about the innocents. I don't think someone will be innocent of 3 felonies. Maybe they get screwed on one of them....but 3 no way. So, you get 2 and you best be on your best behavior! This would save us a LOT of tax $$$. We would have more room in prisons too and could leave the molesters in there instead of letting them out early because of the lack of room.

More info about 112. Looks like 911 should be used or as Robert suggested put a 1 before the 911.

357, 500, "dial 9-m-m", 40SW all work well too:wink:
