Maryland Gang Leader Who Produced “Stop Snitching” Videos Convicted in Baltimore Fed Court

WASHINGTON — Ronnie “Skinny Suge” Thomas, a Maryland gang leader who produced and starred in the infamous “Stop Snitching” videos was convicted Thursday in Baltimore federal court of being part of an organization that was involved in drug trafficking, conspiracy to commit murder and robbery.

Authorities alleged that Thomas and another gang member  Sherman Pride, who was also convicted Thursday,   were part of the Tree Top Piru Bloods (TTP Bloods).  Twenty five other people have been charged in the case.

“Many dangerous criminals have been convicted and removed from Maryland as a result of superb work by police and prosecutors on the TTP Bloods investigation,” U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said in a statement. “Racketeering cases often are time-consuming, but they make a dramatic contribution to public safety.”

The “Stop Snitching” videos became quite popular and advocated violence against those who cooperated with police.

Authorities say the TTP Bloods is an offshoot of “the Bloods”, which began in Los Angeles, California in the early 1970s.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the Maryland TTPs began in the Washington County Detention Center in Hagerstown, Maryland in about 1999.

“The gang was formed for mutual protection in response to the aggression of other inmates from Baltimore and spread throughout Maryland mostly by recruiting from inside Maryland prisons,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
