Why is Fox News lying saying that bloods and crips teamed up with Black Panthers in Baltimore to attack cops?

At the start of the skirmishes between Baltimore police and citizens protesting over the police custody death of Freddie Gray, the police department issued claims that the Blood and Crip gangs were united to “take out” cops. Members of the city’s street gangs denied any such plans to harm officers, stating on record that those claims were false.

The Baltimore Police’s “credible threat” statement came just as scenes of violent clashes were being flashed across every major news outlet available on Monday (April 27). While there were visuals of aggression against cops by various groups of protestors, it did not appear to be a coordinated attack by the gang members. In fact, representatives from the gangs spoke with local NBC affiliate WBAL-TV about their suspected level of involvement.

    Because Fox is not a news organization. It's more like the public relations arm of modern American conservatism. Accordingly, it is more interested in creating division and hatred than in reporting actual news.

    Thanks for watching FOX. As a conservative I can find out from you what they say since I do not watch them. Or are you just repeating what a third part said the Fox said? Anyways, how do you know they did not? I don't. Are you a Black Panther, Crip or Blood? So you repeat what someone else tells you and come on here accusing everyone else of what you are doing. YOur source is the Hip Hop Wire? LOL

    There was over 300 homicides last year in the inner city, vast majority was gang related

    So now we should congratulate the Bloods and Crips because a few members have appeared on TV condemning the riots?
