Baltimore Gang Members

Baltimore, MD — During a recent interview with Channel 11 News in Baltimore, several members of area gangs including the Bloods and the Crips say they did not make a truce to harm the city’s police officers.

One gang member commented, “We want the people of Baltimore City to know that the image they are trying to portray of gangs in baltimore, we do not make that truce to harm cops. We did not, together against cops. We have soldiers out right now. We dirty. They for bombs at us and are trying to stop what’s going on right now.”

When asked about their game plan, he responded, “To stop what’s going on. We just want justice for freddie gray. We believe in that. What you think when you see this happening in the streets? Businesses looted, cars on fire, police injured? It makes us look real bad. And it is backing up what they are saying. They are saying we are animals. And we are acting like that. But i don’t agree what — with what’s going on, but i understand why people are mad. But we have to handle things another way. I think the same thing.”

He added, “We have been out here all day trying to prevent people from breaking into stores. They had us with a bomb. They ripped our shirts and we were still standing right there. We came right back and held hands. We marched together.”

Another gang member commented, “Stop believing everything you hear in the media. If you were not at the protest on the day we protested for freddy, you don’t know what happened. They did not tell you that we walked past downtown, that people through bags at us. People called us names. They called us those things. The protest was agitated.”
