Problem solved.
So, what you're saying is that they wouldn't change anything.

No, this does not solve anything. Then we will have innocent men shot dead simply for being black.

CBC just interviewed someone named Joe Giordano from "City Paper". He claims that the police are provoking things by claiming that gang members are planning to kill police officers. According to him, some gang members are just "protecting black businesses". He came across as being somewhat anti-police, and sure enough after a bit of googling I found this: "City Paper Photo Editor J.M. Giordano was tackled and beaten by Baltimore City police outside of Western District headquarters..."

I was going by what the OP wrote Gorilla in Post #1. I know the difference.

Insulting me, huh? When have I ever defended gangs or gang members? Name one time. Or is this just another ad hominem attack?

Be interesting to see if this really got out of hand if it would lead to martial law and the national guard, etc. being called in.

The problem is, you don't know who pledged their allegiance. You are just making this up so you can shoot any black person you feel like.
