DOJ Issues Warning: Gangs will Unify to Kill Police Officers

If the situation continues to degenerate at the rate it is currently, then we can expect the threat to LEOs to reach the level that it did in the late 1980's and early 1990's, when gang members took advantage of their communities' mutual distrust of police to wreak havoc. The most clear example of this deadly state of affairs was Los Angeles, where officers faced the very real threat of being gunned down by sniper fire while on patrol:

“The bulletin cites the shooting deaths of black men by police in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, and Baton Rouge, and references the deadly sniper attack on police in Dallas. Other highlights in the bulletin include:

-In July 2016, a high-ranking member of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang in Chicago expressed a serious desire to kill a federal law enforcement agent, reasoning that the murder of a federal agent would resonate louder than the death of a local police officer.

-According to July 2016 FBI source reporting, United Blood Nation (UBN) leadership is encouraging violence against law enforcement, by promising elevated status to members who initiate violence against police. -Some Black extremist groups are reportedly applauding the death of the five Dallas police officers and are encouraging gangs nationwide to unite and attack law enforcement, according to uncorroborated July 2016 open source reporting.

ABC News law enforcement contributor Steve Gomez, who worked gangs in South-Central Los Angeles first as an LAPD cop and then as an FBI agent, said the bulletin and the threats it details mark a return to the nightmare of the late 1980s and early 1990s.”
