Police say rumor of gang initiation is unfounded
The Journal received several reports from people leaving District Court today, who said security guards who worked there were warning women to steer clear of all Wal-Marts tonight because there is going to be a gang initiation. False.
Spokeswomen for both the police and sheriff’s departments said there is nothing to the rumor, and at this time it is unclear how it was started. It may be an urban legend that started as a circulating e-mail. See what Snopes says on the subject here.
