yea when i was a young kid the word thugs and goons, was used to describe hired men to rough up / kill people by crime leaders. such as gangs in new york, mafia , union busters and such.
as i became a young and older adult the word started being used by street gangs.
notice that the word is always related to crime.
Baltimore Sergeant Warns Superiors: “It Is About To Get Ugly”
BALTIMORE – A Baltimore police sergeant informed his Eastern District superiors Friday afternoon that officers “are now being challenged on the street.” The sergeant sent the letter following the announcement that State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby was indicting six officers on felony charges associated with the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old who suffered a fatal spinal injury while in Baltimore police custody on April 12.
Sgt. Lennardo Bailey told the “Eastern Command Staff” [sic’d]:
“I have been to five calls today and three of those five calls for service; I have been challenged to a fight. Some of them I blew off but one of them almost got ugly. I don’t want anybody to say that I did not tell them what is going on.
This is no intel this is really what’s going on the street. This is my formal notification. It is about to get ugly.”
BuzzFeed News has also learned that the Baltimore Police Department’s chief of patrol sent out a text message to all commanders ordering officers to take added caution: “2 OFFICERS PER CAR.. DOUBLE UP ALL PATROL CARS,” the order read.

Yes, he ran I still wondering what make him run, perhaps that he may have been under the influence and he went paranoid.

I would LOVE to do that myself to be honest. Lets be real though, outside youtube do you think I would get ANY play? Even if I did, do you not think I would be vilified by the MSM? Not to mention dealing with over-aggressive police that at anytime due to stature and position could ruin my reporting if they chose to do so? This is a bastion of freedom to call it like it is. Your one of them or one of us. Bush said it, but the boys in blue have lived it forever. Corruption breeds corruption, and until it's out COMPLETELY I will not trust the police, EVER. Even My best friend an AZ DPS. He can stick it where the sun don't shine for his lack of initiative and willingness to collect a check.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

A police "Strike" would fit nicely into the Obama "Federalizing" plans.
