false flagging
 n.— «In some of our more affluent neighborhoods, we have young people espousing the gang culture and mentality, receiving their gang information second hand and off popular Internet sites. This can put that youth and possibly his or her family at risk of reprisal by gang members who truly engage in gang activity. This “false flagging” as it is known, is a direct disrespect of gang members.» —“Redirect youths from seeking sense of belonging in gangs” by Victor Saunders Democrat and Chronicle (Rochester, New York) Aug. 23, 2006.
