Jail for man in 'Stop Snitching' videos

A man who appeared in the "Stop Snitching" videos has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for racketeering. A co-defendant was sentenced to more than 24 years on the same charges.

Federal prosecutors say 35-year-old Sherman Pride of Salisbury and 36-year-old Ronnie Thomas of Baltimore were sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

Officials say the two are members of the Tree Top Piru Bloods, or TTP Bloods gang, which was responsible for murder, drug trafficking and robbery.

Pride and Thomas were convicted in January. Thomas, whose street name is Skinny Suge, appeared prominently in the infamous 2004 video wishing harm on those who cooperate with police.

In addition to Thomas, eight other people connected with the “Stop Snitching” videos have been prosecuted in federal court.
