However, the only real information regarding this is coming straight from the Baltimore PD. Considering the abuses that have been exposed in many big city police forces, it would not surprise me if this was a simply fabricated story that gives the police force the good-will they need to be loosey-goosey with their firearms.

I don't know who to believe. Obviously it's not beyond gang members to puff their chest with these threats (and maybe carry out one or two crimes) but the second a white officer is shot by gang members, you can fully expect hellfire to reign down on anyone that looks or associates with a gang member. Cops are a ******* vindictive bunch, and (not unlike gang members) they protect their own to fault.

Reading their Facebook feed, it seems like an awful situation:

Well, anything is possible. Now let me ask you this, when it comes to the gang members does it really matter where the story comes from? You do realize you're talking about people who prey on society at large, murder,rape,pillage and burn and sell all sorts of deadly wares right?

Those are really the people you're worried about????

My guess is that this is hot air and posturing.
Never underestimate the collective stupidity of street gang members.

Have you watched her in press conferences on TV? She is over her head and not treading water very well.

Military isn't allowed to act as police; Constitution says so. The state can call in their national guard but the USA military is out of the picture unless foreign entities are attacking.

Exclamation Crips involved in looting etc

Some info to add to this, CNN had someone on who said that those thugs we're seeing in blue ski masks are Crips doing what they can to spin things up and take what they can while they can.

And, the Nation of Islam. Picture taken in Baltimore yesterday - Crips, Bloods and Nation of Islam(red bow ties, some portraying the ISIS symbol)




Rev. Bryant is calling for those who are rioting to not riot today. In the middle of his interview he stated the following...
"..we have a line of gentlemen from the Nation of Islam who are going to build a human wall.." - Rev. Jamal Bryant
Baltimore pastor: Young people out of control - CNN Video

The mayor had also thanked the Nation of Islam for their 'support'.

Nation of Islam should be viewed as a terrorist group.

What is different about the things that Farrakhan has said compared to the threats of scumbags like Bin Laden had said in the past?


Farrakhan On Ferguson: ‘We’ll Tear This G**damn Country Up!’ [VIDEO] | The Daily Caller

Nation of Islam is not for peace at all.

"“We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something,” the radical figure told the crowd to roaring applause.

He even said the parents of teenagers should teach their kids how to throw Molotov cocktails. “Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can. Fight,” the minister advised, and then imitated throwing the explosive device."

This is their LEADER!
