36 Gangs Vow To “Shoot On-Sight Any Cop That Has A Weapon Drawn On Any Subject In Public”

Published

Street gangs, 36 in total, are looking for national attention by threatening to shoot any officer that they see drawing a firearm in public.

The “situational information report” from FBI officials in Chicago dated August 26, 2020, states “members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties. The purpose of which is to catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent ‘shoot on-sight’ of said officer, in order to garner national media attention.”

The threats to law enforcement have been growing, considering the current climate in the country. While many support police, there are many that don’t. And things are turning violent.

“I think it’s bigger than a suggestion,” Supt. Brown said. “I think 51 officers being shot at or shot in one year, I think that quadruples any previous year in Chicago’s history. So I think it’s more than a suggestion that people are seeking to do harm to cops.”

It’s a tough job to begin with, especially in the incresingly lawless land of Chicago, where crime and gangs have taken over certain areas and hold a fierce grip on things that happen there.

If these gang members would, you know, do something productive for themselves and society, they wouldn’t be looking to kill the people who are trying to take them down. This isn’t a black vs white thing, and has nothing to do with the police shootings that have been in the spotlight. This is a ‘we are going to take advantage of the current climate to tighten our grip on the areas we have a strong presence in.’

54 people were shot in Chicago just this past weekend, including two officers.
