White cops and correction officers are being targeted for death by a black prison gang in what’s being called “Black August,” according to a chilling security bulletin obtained by The Post.
The bulletin was issued by the FBI’s National Gang intelligence Center, and the warnings were passed on to city Correction officials on Aug. 5.
“The warning involves an increased risk for violence during ‘Black August,’” say a sternly worded internal memo issued to commanding officers at city jails.
Two days after the warning, a city correction officer at Rikers was beaten up and slashed by an inmate, who also pummeled a second guard. That attack was not related to the Black August threat, a Correction Department spokeswoman told The Post.
