Pressure on the gang itself. A more targeted police solution with even greater resources could cause problems for a gang.

Your constitutional rights go away when you pledge your allegiance to an entity that wants nothing to do with authority of the law, not to mention has absolutely zero regard for the rest of society as we know it.

Or...pest control.

Prove it in the Constitution. And furthermore, shooting anyone who even "looks" like they might not be right, it is called murder. It doesn't matter what they have done. Prove with the Constitution your point. You

If you cannot refute anything I've said, making ad hominem arguments only serves to make a person look foolish. Under U.S. law, shooting and killing anyone just because they "don't look right" is murder. If you aren't being physically confronted with force, it's murder. Period.

There is something not being consider. The police have enough weaponry to take gang members out. If a gang member shoots at a police officer, the police can shoot back and kill.

It might be a good time to bring in a "stop and frisk" procedure in Baltimore.

If you look like you belong to a gang, usually tattoos and colours are a tip off and you are walking down the street be expected to be stopped. The Cops also generally know who the bad guys are. Stop them Frisk them and if a weapon or drugs are found they get arrested.

Cut the cancer these gangs spread out of the streets at least for a time.

It worked to take down gang members in Anchorage,Alaska, and in other cities in the USA. And if a gang member shoots at a police officer said police officer can shoot back, and kill.

who in the world is not considering that?

from the Baltimore sun:
Quote:
In December, the Baltimore FBI office issued a memo that the Black Guerrilla Family gang was targeting "white cops" in Maryland, an agency spokeswoman confirmed.

The memo, circulating among officers, said a contact who had given reliable information in the past said members of the gang connected to the high-profile corruption scandal at the Baltimore City Detention Center were planning to target white officers to "send a message."

And in January, police were on heightened alert after a man brought a gun into the Northeastern District police station with a handgun and said it was part of a "security test" ordered by the BGF.
before long it's going to impossible to find anyone crazy enough to take a job as a police officer in cities like Baltimore where you have the idiotic mayor 'giving space' to 'those who wish to destroy.'
hey Stephanie, make some space for them at your house
