Gangs join forces to ‘take out’ cops, Baltimore PD alleges

Baltimore police said it has credible information that street gangs have joined forces to attack police.

The statement was issued minutes before the funeral service for Freddie Gray, who died in Baltimore police custody earlier this month.

According to the Baltimore Police Department, there is “credible information” that various prison and street gangs entered a partnership to “take-out (sic) law enforcement officers.”

Law enforcement agencies should take appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of their officers,”

the release said, adding a request to the media to distribute the warning to…

the public and law enforcement nationwide.”

The gangs named in the release are Black Guerrilla Family, Bloods and Crips. All three started out in the Los Angeles area, before spreading throughout the US. According to publicly available estimates, Crips may have up to 35,000 members and Bloods up to 20,000, with the BGF estimated at up to 300 members and 50,000 “associates.”

Nation of Islam activists said on Saturday they had brokered a “truce” between the long-time rivals Bloods and Crips, and posted a photo on social media showing the members of two gangs wearing their colors and posing together.

However, a number of local residents, activists and observers have greeted the police announcement with skepticism, posting on social media that the timing of its release was “too convenient.” One Baltimore resident described the statement as “controlling the narrative”.

Another called the release a “cynical attempt by the BPD to distract the media from Freddie Gray’s funeral.

Several thousand people gathered at Gray’s funeral, which began at 11:00am local time at Baltimore’s New Shiloh Baptist Church.

On April 12, Gray was apprehended by members of the Baltimore Police Department after fleeing on foot from a cluster of officers. He suffered a severe injury to his spinal cord while in the custody of the BPD and died a week later. Six police officers remain suspended pending the results of an internal investigation into the affair.

Protests erupted across Baltimore after Gray’s arrest and intensified following his death. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the family of Freddie Gray have urged protesters to remain peaceful, but police reportedly arrested dozens over the weekend when rallies turned violent.
