I just caught wind of this story on Yahoo News: http://gma.yahoo.com/mississippi-highway-murders-killer-posing-cop-123452662--abc-news-topstories.html
There is apparently a man posing as a police officer pulling random people over and shooting them, and he is operating between Clarksdale and Oxford, MS. That is exactly where a lot of us will be for the next few days. Please be very careful on the highways and rural roads, and remember: even if a cop signals for you to pull over, you are allowed to continue driving until you have found a well-lit public place that you feel is safe to pull over into. If anyone gets pulled over in northern MS this weekend, I would call 911 and try to confirm the police have a unit in your area before actually stopping.
