Icon18 Dalton Police gang warning

Comment: After the recent kidnapping/rape/murder of a teenage girl in
Kansas, the following email has been circulating (the cities listed are in
North Georgia, I am in Chattanooga, TN):

--------------------------------------------

Subject: Watch out

This was forwarded to me..keep a look out ladies!! And guys, watch out for
the ladies!


Folks,

I got a call from a friend last night after she had received a call
from her co-worker. The co-worker's husband is a Pastor who does a lot of
work with the Dalton Police Dept. He said that the Dalton Police have put
local stores, specifically the Wal-Marts (including the one in Ft.
Oglethorpe) on alert. They have received information regarding one of the
many gangs that have be developing in the Dalton area, that there will be
"initiation" soon. This initiation involves the abduction of a white
female from a parking lot, her rape and death. Apparently, this
information was learned during the investigation into the shoot of a high
school senior several days ago.


Please pass this on to your wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, etc.
We need to all be more alert and watch out for each other.

My friend told me something about this, but I can't remember exactly what, except that he also mentioned our Wlal-Mart (LaFayette) He is a dispatcher for Walker 911and pretty good at avoiding hoaxes and ULs, but if a supervisor passed it on as fact, then he may have believed it.

Gang Initiation Email a Hoax

Our Investigators at the police department are receiving calls from concerned citizens about an email that is circulating in reference to a gang initiation to kill a white female.

The law enforcement community has not received any information concerning this matter and this should be considered a hoax.
