Police had reports of a crude stone altar, possibly bloodstained, next to a wooden stake, while a roughly built den was found near the scene of an attack. On one occasion, sheep carcasses were laid in the shape of a seven-pointed star, a symbol linked to the notorious Victorian occultist Aleister Crowley, once described as “the wickedest man in the world”.

The evil 7-pointed star is also used by the California and Arizona Highway Patrol Gestalt Gestapo, and Shire Reeves in other States, too ...

Good catch

In my youngest Thelemic days I recall wondering at the coincidence.

 

If I recall correctly I believe that is the sheriff's badge thru the whole country. 

 

At least I believe I seent it in Collar Rado too and in Alabama on the TV.

Oh, there's plenty of variation ...

I never saw an 8, but they're out there

And a 9? This is from Chicago 1920s

The points may symbolize something, but the meaning has been lost. The Lost Word is still Lost, and authority comes in any pointies or shields, as long as it's shiny.

Sgt. Friday's badge bears the badge number "714".

This was a source of great amusement to 1970s teenagers who were fanciers of Quaaludes/"sopors", a depressant (sold in the rest of the world under the name Mandrax/"mandies") very popular at that time. The Quaalude pills were stamped "714".
