*Somebody got it WRONG.
Monday night rival Baltimore gang members came together to let the world know that they never formed a truce to harm city police officers in revenge for the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died last week after being injured in police custody.
“We want the people of Baltimore City to know that the image they are trying to portray of gangs in Baltimore — the [Black Guerilla Family], the Bloods, the Crips — we did not make that truce to harm cops,” a man who identified as a member of the Bloods gang told Baltimore’s NBC affiliate station WBAL 11.
The individual was joined by about eight other self-identified gang members from the Bloods and Crips.
“We did not come together to harm cops,” he said. “We’re not about to allow y’all to paint this picture of us.”
On Monday morning — before protests and violent riots erupted across the city following Gray’s funeral — the Baltimore Police Department said it had uncovered a “credible threat” that members of the three gangs, among other groups, were conspiring to “take out” police officers.
“We have soldiers out here right now,” the Blood member told WBAL 11. “We dirty. We dirty. They threw bombs at us for trying to stop what’s going on right now. Y’all not about to do that to us.”
