Gang Initiation Posts on Facebook are FALSE

Release date: February 27, 2015
Incident: Gang Initiation Rumors Circulating on Social Media

The Warner Robins Police Department is aware of the allegations circulating social media websites, alleging gang initiation activity.

Here’s the truth:  We have one report of a vehicle that was vandalized by a stick.  Nothing from this incident indicates that it was targeted, widespread or a part of a gang initiation. 

The rumor that continues to circulate on Facebook and Twitter about members of the Green Street Gang targeting women, jumping from behind bushes, beating their cars up with baseball bats and raping them is absolutely not true. 

We ask that the public ceases from spreading this rumor on social media websites. 

Please remember that knowingly posting false information on social media causing the public to panic is illegal.
