They get to go out an initiate themselves with the blood of innocent victims and the law-abiding citizens of this state have no lawful means to protect themselves.

We need HB2, shall-issue legislation passed NOW!

this is good that one gang is off the street but the officials in baltimore is fighting a never ending war because the problem is not being addressed properly. if you look at the ages of the young men involved in this case they all were born in the mid eighties.if you start very strong programs that will focus on inner city youths ages 5 to 10 you will stop the gangs from being 10 and 20 thousand strong...i say this because we continue to arrest people like this gang but we are not even stratching the surface of the problems in the city. for every young man arrested 10 are in the processor becoming even more violent than their elders. we have to create a platform to truly foght crime and stop the murders in bmore.. There are solutions and i have contributed to this solution by writing a book called Pipeline "exposing the darkness" based on my life.. i am a true survivoe of the inner city of baltimore and i love my city.i dont live there any more ,but your not a true god fearing man unless you give back to people whome are stuck ....its a way out but no light is shed on these kind of stories...i wrote a screenplay that will give baltimore a tru look in the mirror.not some newspaper reporters or ex cops story from the other side of the wall because at the end of the day they do go home to safe baltimore... this story will bring a clear solution for the city woes......love you baltimore....

look if its the bloods or the crips this is totally not apart of baltimores culture.like i said we are a following city that copy cats.now gangs are not apart of the culture in bmore,first of all they run in packs and cowards run in packs.while i was growing up in west baltimore in the 80"s and 90"s we never had gangs.thats a west coast and south thang.if you look at it and this article the baltimore guys are being pimped because they listen and take orders from some westcoast dude in a jail cell.if you read the phone taps the guy on the west coast is giving orders to bmore followers. so this gang culture is weak as hell. the baltimore soldigers protected our communities and we did not hurt innocent people to impress or gain rank in some gang thats weak look at it. not saying that it is right but it was about making money,not hurting people. if you wanted to prove something to yourself or sombody you would just make money and this is not right but you dont hurt people for the sake of a gand.your week for doing this.the real baltimore dudes dont gang bang they protect their community,you feel me.. gangs will send you to jail and if yoiu count the years with the name or money it does not add up.... so get a new hustle,their are to many ways to make dough legally and be a real man.... remember the weak run in crowds and the strong stay solo and serve god shorty. this is coming from a real man that figured it out and made positive moves. the drug game is over especially in bmore,too much dumb violence..killing for nothing....

The problem is a million times larger then this one group being singled out for whatever reason.GANGS where made from a positive prosective and through the years have been manipulated from elders.The goverment knows whos who and whats what from the minute your born.YOUR CLASSIFIED.The individuals in this case help classify themselfs.We are divided among different neiborhoods,jail sections and peer groups from birth.Here we have those that take the division to another extream.The reason no knowledg.The education that we recive is very underpar.Even the food so some with no good upbring or strong rolemoles and education fall to there enviroment.

Gangs are taking over large cities small cities and the gangs do what ever they want to do, I believe in most cities large and small the gangs run the business and the police are afraid of them. if you keep up with the news there are more and more police officers killed everyday that's the way gangs get respect using fear on the police and all people who oppose them. That is a good tact. fear will make people lay down and roll over and let the hoods do what they want to do . When the public sees something going on they turn there head the other way. I believe it is a loosing battle when the law tries to clean up the gangs.

i live in rosedale maryland here in the county
baltimore county is a nice area to live nice homes
nice people i wish the county would just have more
night clubs where nice people could meet and have
fun we need more older night clubs for jazz
and old school music for people 25 and older
baltimore county towns of towson middle river
overlea essex and rosedale should have nice dance
clubs we should not have to go in to baltimore all
the time to party are latino population is growing
in rosedale overlea parkville towson middle river
and essex area dominicans mexicans central americans which is good i am african american
that used to live in park heights in north west
baltimore years ago i work in downtown baltimore

went to morgon state u baltimore county has whites
african americans jamaicans and latinos that is
beauitful thing to see thats why we need clubs
for people to meet each other and have a good time
out here in the these county towns you see more
and more whites and blacks datting each other
which is cool thats what god loves we do have
a small gang problem bloods crips ms13 18th street
gang b g f but its not bad and thats good we need
to love each other as people and get a long now
in other areas of the county pikesville owings mills randallestown and woodlwan those areas are
not good because you see blacks hate backs
whites and blacks do not mix it up with each other
and thats sad in thosareas are worse thin rosedale
towson middle river essex overlea and parkville
thats why i like rosedale and areas close by because people get a long with each other its
not a bout race its a bout people and the women
are more nicer to talk to white black and latino

to open up a mix dance club in rosedale towson

crips bloods and white gangs like polor bears dead man
the tirgers these are white gangs ok the black
and latino gangs run the drug trade you know at
one time baltimore use to be a good town but over
the years sad to say it has got worse and worse its sad
look we still have lots of strong hard working people
here that want to stay here but the sad thing is
the younger kids are moving to other states after
college they are moving to floridia atlanta north carlonia mid west states denver co omaha minnesota
seattle or phoenix arizona that are right
but look baltimore has to get better paying jobs
and have more fun things to to keep people here
