‘Crips And Bloods’ Threaten Area Law Enforcement
A social media threat against police and firefighters is making the rounds in the Kansas City area. The post calls on the Crips and Bloods gangs to shed some blood.
Word of the non-specific threat came after KCK Police Captain Dave Melton’s murder Tuesday and at a time when fatal shootings of police officers are a national concern.
On Thursday, both the KCMO and KCK Fire Departments received notice of this threat along with other area fire departments in the Heart of America Metro Fire Chiefs Council. That organization’s headquarters are in Olathe.
The threat reads in part, “As you fight, remember that the fireman and the police are on the same side. Don’t be fooled!”
“We are calling on the gangs across the nation! Attack everything in blue except the mailman, unless he is carrying more than mail!”
“It’s time for the Crips and Blood to shed some blood.”
