issued this warning:
If you are driving after dark and see an on-coming car with no
headlights on, DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS AT THEM! This is a common Bloods
gang 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.
