Don't believe this story. It is not impossible but would require a degree of coordination street gangs don't tend to have.

If it's true, the police should open up.

Crips, Bloods Call Truce, Not to Harm Cops But to Protect their Community from Violence & Looting | The Free Thought Project

From the article (emphasis mine):


Baltimore, MD — The Crips, Bloods, BGF and other major gangs reportedly called a truce during yesterday’s Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore. They did not make threats of violence, they were not indicated as participants in acts of violence or vandalism during the protests.

However, their promise to no longer be divided, was such a threat to the establishment that within 12 hours there were stories on the home page of every mainstream media publication talking about how the gangs were going to join up with the specific intention of killing cops and burning down the city.

Each of the mainstream sources had basically republished a press release that was put out by the Baltimore City Police Department, citing that there was a “credible threat” that gang members were planning to carry out attacks on police. There was no evidence to back this claim up, but the very fact that rival gangs were calling a truce in the streets was enough to drive the establishment into panic mode.

Of course. They're anxious to get back to dealing drugs.
