The Maryland U.S. Attorney’s Office announced today the sentencings of two gang members, including the infamous Ronnie Thomas, known as Skinny Suge, the producer of the Stop Snitching videos (link goes to YouTube, video contains offensive language).

In the video, Thomas said, “I can say what I want. F— the police. F— Patricia Jessamy. I can’t go to jail for that. This is how I feel. What y’all getting me for? Freedom of speech?” What they got him for was racketeering conspiracy, and he got nearly the maximum sentence.

The video came to symbolize Baltimore’s witness intimidation culture, and got NBA star and native Baltimorean Carmelo Anthony in hot water for a cameo. The player later apologized and said he didn’t endorse its message.
