Bloods and Crips Team Up to Protest Baltimore’s Cops

Things are apparently so bad in Baltimore that even the city’s gang adversaries—along with the Nation of Islam—are joining forces.

Before protests over Freddie Gray’s death turned chaotic, an unlikely alliance was born in Baltimore on Saturday: Rivals from the Bloods and the Crips agreed to march side by side against police brutality.

The alleged gang members are pictured on social media crowding together with Nation of Islam activists, who told The Daily Beast they brokered the truce in honor of Gray, who died last week after sustaining spinal injuries while in police custody.

6. We will never make an impact regarding gang clean up.

They don't care about the dead youth at all...it's just an opportunity to loot and assault anyone. This sure gets applied to the protest marchers who want change in law enforcement tactics. This gang assault just diminishes any progress and reinforces military tactics.
