Gang members deny police claims of truce to ‘take out’ white cops: ‘They’re saying we’re animals’

Gang members denied reports that they had teamed up with their rivals to “take out” police officers in Baltimore – where violence erupted following the funeral of a black man who died in police custody.

The city’s police department issued a warning Monday afternoon, shortly after after the funeral of Freddie Gray, that rival gangs intended to kill “all white police officers.”
“The Criminal Intelligence Unit received credible information that members of various gangs including the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods, and Crips have entered into a partnership to ‘take out’ law enforcement officers,” police said in a statement.
But self-identified gang members, some of whom had been involved in peaceful protests over the weekend, told local media that no such agreements had been made.
“We want to tell the people of the city right now, of Baltimore City, that the image that they’re trying to portray of the gangs in Baltimore — The BGF, The Bloods, The Crips — we did not make that truce to harm cops,” one gang member told WBAL-TV.
