Prison guards, police warned of possible ‘Black August’ attacks | abc7.com – The Bureau of Prisons and the FBI declined to comment for this report. Retired FBI special agent Rick Smith said: “I think it’s serious. They put that bulletin out, they don’t want to be caught with something happening with the information they have and not disseminating it.” Also included in the bulletin is the FBI’s Baltimore office report: “BGF members reportedly discussed how they could ambush law enforcement officers who were parked in alleys or side streets.” It also mentions the San Francisco Bay View newspaper for publishing articles, “suggesting California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation responsibility for Pinell’s murder, and promoting Black August celebrations as a platform for action.” Bay View editor Mary Ratcliff is surprised her newspaper is named in the bulletin, but is worried about the message. “This statement from the Department of Justice puts black people in danger,” Ratcliff said. “Because it is promoting the idea that there is a war going on between black people and law enforcement.”
