Pretty much. And even if a person decides to pledge their allegiance to something antipatriotic, said person still has to go through due process.

Has it really come down to this? Are we as a society really going to condone these street thugs going this far?
It would seem to me that yes, we will. We've let these gangs sell drugs,murder,rape and terrorize most cities in our nation and what does the citizenry do? Not a whole bunch. We want "others" (the police) to handle it and then SCREAM bloody murder when mistakes happen or some bad apples screw up.
Maybe, just maybe it's time for the residents of these gang infested cities to take advantage of their second amendment rights and stand up for the good people that live there?
Is there another answer? At this point I don't know...

What say ye?

Police spokesman Capt. Eric Kowalczyk would not say whether the threat is related to the death of Gray. Kowalczyk said the threat announcement has been circulated to law enforcement agencies nationwide.
Freddie Gray death: Street gangs band together to kill police in Baltimore? | AL.com
Didn't read the link, but... ...I live nearby. The gang leaders met with clergy at a Baptist church. The meeting is to find a way to stop the rioting, not increase it. For those who do not live in or near Baltimore: the main activity is on the West Side and it is a safe bet to say that the gang leaders do not want the National Guard or more police in their hoods. The rioters/looters, if you can believe it, are making it difficult for the drug dealers to conduct business. Lexington Market may be world famous, but it is also a prime "open air" drug market, too. Lexington Market closed because of what is going on, and will likely remain closed tomorrow. It's not like the rioters are looting in Roland Park or Homewood or Canton or where-ever; there is heroin to be bought and sold in those streets on the West Side. The store owners and residents were not the only ones to lose money today; drug dealing happens on the street in Baltimore and the West Side is prime real estate for that.

Unless they declare martial law. That's generally when things calm down in a hurry.

Problem solved.
Someone walking down the street who "looks" like they might be a gang member, no proof whatsoever, maybe they just glorify some rapper, you want them shot. That's not an acceptable response to the problem. You shoot an innocent person for their clothing style, you're going to have a much bigger problem on your hands. That's a great way to incite some serious riots.

It is indeed that "black guerilla" gang which if you are upset by them being called the black gorillas or the black turdsticks etc. you shouldn't be.

They kill more blacks in Baltimore each year than most people can count.

Gangs are gangs. Racists are racists. I hope they both rot.

I actually agree with you.

This.^^^

The whole thing is a big fat distraction and the powers that be (gangs and city) want things to return to business as usual.

Would make for a cool movie, tbh. Something like TDKR where villains cease a city and seal it off from the rest of the world.

And if you are a black man who does not dress like a low class gang banger, then you have nothing to worry about. Dress like a normal, self respecting human being who gives a damn about how he presents himself in society, don't get gang symbols tattooed on your body, and you're safe. We all know these idiots are too flat out stupid to try and mix in and hide themselves because they're too proud to display their colors, so I don't think we have to worry about them flipping the game on anyone.
Who would those people be? How can you tell who is going to become a criminal? Why don't you just come out and say what you are instead of hiding behind the word, "criminal".

Let's shoot white dudes with guns before they kill kids in elementary schools, seems about right,
