The Federal Bureau of Prisons, Sacramento Intelligence, and the FBI’s National Gang Intelligence Center are warning of an increased risk for violence against law enforcement during Black August. The prison gang Black Guerilla Family (BGF) started Black August in the 70’s as a way to honor fallen members. Hugo Pinell, the most known of the gang, served 46 years in solitary confinement for killing a prison guard. He died 13 days after his release during a riot.
The bulletin warns of attacks on prison guards with a 2-for-1 kill policy, but also goes on to discuss ambushing police officers. The gang wants to send a firm message and warns of attacks happening nationally. Officers are taking the threat very seriously. The bulletin was released with a picture of a gorilla eating a pig:
