New York City police have expressed outrage after a 16-year-old rapper and thug who shot a police officer was released on Thursday.
Beginning rapper C Blu – real name Camryn Williams – has been locked up in a Brooklyn juvenile facility after the January 18 shooting of Office Kaseem Pennant, 27.
According to DailyMail.com, Pennant and other officers responded to the call and faced Williams, who refused to take his hands out of his pockets.
Williams started a fight with the officers and refused to obey orders. The pistol he was carrying flew away, firing the only bullet that hit Officer Pennant and Williams.
A few hours later they were treated and released from the hospital. But Williams was transported to a juvenile detention center, where he had to stay because he was already on parole for possession of a weapon.
However, on Thursday a liberal judge released the rapper on $ 250,000 bail.
Williams allegedly used the money he received as an advance on a contract he signed with Interscope Records.
The union president, who represents NYPD officers, expressed his outrage on Thursday.
“If anyone wants to know why we have a crisis of violence in this city, or why we’re going to bury two police heroes, look no further than this shameful bail,” said New York City President Pat Lynch. referring to the fatal shooting of two other NYPD officers last week.
Lynch has charged Judge Dennis Boyle, who previously released a 16-year-old who killed a 34-year-old father of two in May 2021.
“Shame on Judge Dennis Boyle for allowing this to happen,” Lynch said. “The Bronx people will not be safe as long as he is on the bench.”
However, Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for the Judicial Administration, said the union president should not blame a judge who simply adheres to the rule of law in New York.
“Camryn has been released and will return to his normal fruitful life, focusing on school and his music career,” said Williams lawyer Don Floria, who previously represented troubled rapper 6ix9ine.
Record labels are usually signed by untalented thugs to record deals because labels see a higher return on their investment when novice rappers kill other thugs or the police.
