  • i’mreloaded!

    When did murder become assault, and how the hell you get a quarter century for assault?

    • Celz

      Illegal guns is illegal fam.. You can’t just walk around with a burners like they iPhones.. Not sayin you do.. But watchin unsigned niccas videos they don’t even realize that’s part of reason labels be signing Pop acts and fake gangstas

      • Calico Joe

        But they never found the gun. So he got charged for possessing something not found in his possession? Seems like they relied on witness testimony. Bottom line, he got f*cked by his lawyer, the prosecutor, and the judge.

      • Celz

        Witnesses man.. Dude got stretched but not by that much he’s a street nicca he knows the consequences of getting caught with a burner.. That’s why you don’t react on emotion, he killed a nicca in a public place and people told on him.. They weren’t his crimeys, homies, or Co-Ds so he knows he has no business trustin them to keep they mouth shut..

    How he gonna get charge for possession of a hand gun but the murder weapon or shells were never recovered???

    • Calico Joe

      I know, that shit doesn’t add up at all.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        that was def one serious mind f*ck when i read that …but maybe thats why he beat the murder but didnt beat the gun charge ….??????? they ccan prove he had a gun but they couldnt prove that he pulled it and used it to kill duncan ?????

    • Weedras

      because they have evidence of him in possession of the gun but the whereabouts of the gun are unknown…

      • crucob

        It’s crazy, if they don’t even have the gun, how can they prove beyond a resonable doubt that he EVER had possession of it. Sounds like here-say, but I guess that’s enough to get people indicted nowadays.

      • Weedras

        i don’t know maybe they have witnesses who saw him with it, maybe they have some surveillance who saw him with it but never caught him actually doing the deed… could be a number of things that point to him being in possession of it without a doubt…

    25 years for assault and gun? Young Vito might as well have gotten sentenced for murder anyway. Vito will be the new fresh fish in the big house. Well I guess that his the end of his so called career.
