The FBI informed Chicago law enforcement that over 30 Chicago gangs have vowed to shoot all law enforcement that have their weapons drawn.

According to the Blaze
Chicago Police Department Superintendent David Brown says that the conditions in Chicago are ever deteriorating and wholly believes that there is an imminent threat to police officers amid escalating tensions across the U.S.
“I think it’s bigger than a suggestion,” Brown says. “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.”
Brown added, “We need police officers, and as community members, we need to push back fervently against lawlessness.”
