Police document from the 1980s’ ‘Satanic Panic’ is wonderfully bizarre

And we believed mothers trying to decipher emoji messages was bad.

Twitter user Jennifer Jordan tweeted yesterday that her sister received a police record from the 1980 s describing stages and signs of satanic venerate. It’s insane.

Titled, “Identification, Investigation, and Understanding of Ritualistic Criminal Activity, ” the document says it was presented by Det. Robert Semandi of the Chicago Police Department. It was made during the “Satanic Panic, ” when many Americans succumbed to mass hysteria, believing that organized Satanic worship was widespread and preying on children.

The document summarizes how to identify ritualistic activity in young person. Some of the specific characteristics of a teen to participate in Satanic activity, for example, are intelligence, imagination, and boredom.

Watch out for teens like this!

Then there’s more, including how to identify Satanic emblems like the “horned hand.” Good to know that Spider-Man is a Satanist too.

Also, watch out for torso markings that could be Satanist, which includes both black panthers and swastikas .

There’s also a part containing evil spells, like “attracting love from the opposite sex” and how “to stop someone from hating you.” Maybe this is just for Jedis?

Another important element of seeing a Satanist is whether or not they like hiking.

Everyone on Twitter had their favorite parts about this wild record to share, and there are plenty to choose from.

People likewise shared their own narratives about their brushes with Satanism.

At least now we can all look back at this and laugh. Sort of.
