Baltimore PD: Gangs to ‘Take Out’ Cops

The Baltimore Police Department said Monday that it considers threats to “take out” cops from the Bloods, Crips, and the Black Guerilla Family (among other gangs) to be a credible threat. “Law-enforcement agencies should take appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of their officers,” the a Baltimore PD press release said. Kate Briquelet reports that the Bloods and Crips have quit fighting each other in order to team up and protest police in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray.
