Jersey City Officer Melvin Santiago was fatally shot in the head responding to an armed robbery at a Walgreens on July 13th. Officer Santiago was sitting in his police vehicle when he was shot in cold blood by Lawrence Cambell. After shooting Santiago, Cambell then walked into the Walgreens and told a witness “to watch the news later today because he was going to be famous.” Cambell was soon killed by police in a shootout.
Cambell’s followers soon erected a memorial hailing him a hero. Cambell’s wife said she wished her husband killed more cops before he died. “If that’s the case, he should’ve took more with him. If they was going to stand over my husband and shoot him like a f—ing dog, he should’ve took all of them the f— out.”
Now the United Blood Nation (aka Bloods) are threatening Jersey police vowing “kill a Jersey City cop and not stop until the National Guard is called out.”
Daily Mail reported:
An internal Port Authority advisory, obtained by The Post, read: ‘New Jersey State Police has received credible information from the Jersey City Police Department about specific threats toward Jersey City police officers and law enforcement.
‘The United Blood Nation may take retaliatory action against police officers.’
It is not known whether Campbell was a member of the gang
A law enforcement source also told the paper a statewide alert had been issued following three shootings involving police in the city.
A reporter was suspended in relation to the incident when he voiced his opinion about the”anti-cop mentality” among fatherless young black men.
