Gangs Conspire To Take Out Baltimore Police Officers

streetgangsThe Baltimore Police Department said earlier in the day they received a credible threat that numerous gangs have entered into a partnership to “take-out” law enforcement officers.

According to the department, they have received credible information that various gangs including the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods and Crips have entered into the partnership.

“Law enforcement agencies should take appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of their officers,” the department says in a press release.

This threat comes after 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested for possessing a switch blade knife April 12 in Baltimore. According to his attorney, Gray died a week later in the hospital from a severe spinal cord injury he received while in police custody.

    Are we to be led to believe that before this “credible threat” that police were not taking adequate precautions to ensure the safety of officers? What cities like Baltimore need are more citizens who daily live like they are their brother’s keeper. That being done juvenile delinquents would have less influence.

    The mayor of Baltimore is proof this is a cultural thing. Until the culture changes this is going to happen more and more often because no one will stop it. I say just take the police out of it and give them a paid vacation and let this culture take care of itself. Of course all these large cities will have to completely rebuild but they will do so without all the gangs and with the full cooperation of all and I mean ALL citizens.
