35 Md. Gang Members Indicted: Sarah Brumfield of AP reports on the indictment of 35 members of the notorious Bloods gang in Baltimore.  The Maryland offshoot of the California-based gang was run by prison inmate Andre Roach from his cell.  Among the crimes Roach allegedly orchestrated were drug trafficking, home-invasion robberies, witness intimidation, a jail break, several shootings and a murder.  For over two years investigators have been working on a probe called "Cardinal Sin" that recorded phone calls, developed confidential sources, intercepted letters discussing gang business etc. U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said, "These gangs are a danger not only in themselves, but because they influence others and they create other violence including retaliatory violence."
