    I would think that these gangs have the identities of specific LEOs that have killed brothers, not just a routine call to arms against cops in general. Ergo, the cops on their list will already have a good idea who they are. A pucker moment for , don't ya' know?

    Fleeing felon rule specifically precludes shooting people in the back who don't post an imediate threat
    Yes, and once you are willing to fight a cop. Go for his weapon, continue to run. I no longer give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Yeah, Baltimore is a bit f'd. It was a powder keg waiting to go, and this latest killing of a suspect pushed it over. While many protesters likely want to do so peacefully and push for a solution, there are many criminals laying in wait to exploit opportunities of violence and crime. Hopefully the whole place doesn't burn down.

    Yes, it's alot worse today. You have Orioles playing tonight in Baltimore. They need to call in the National Guard now or it's gonna blow up massively.

    IMO, it makes sense for the police to treat such threats seriously, even if their credibility is difficult to assess. Doing less might result in harm that could have been avoided. Making it known that such a threat is being taken seriously might deter the would-be perpetrators.

    On a separate note, a positive police story, as a lot of attention is given to the negative ones: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.2198895

    We haven't really seen the gangs go at it yet, but the seemingly average youngsters in that community sure as hell are acting with more violence than in Missouri.

    When cops are having their riot shields breaking in half from what these punks are throwing and cops coming out significantly injured, there is no way you can spin this innocently.

    Tragically, where there is opportunity, there will be opportunists. The looting and destruction of property are disgusting. These people don't give a damn about Freddie Gray, only about themselves.

    Meanwhile, there are questions about what happened to Freddie Gray that demand answers, but those answers haven't been provided, and it's time.
