Chivalry is not dead! This tragic love story, that comes to us from the armpit of earth, Brockton, MA, sounds like it was ripped straight out of a Shakespearean play. Actually, no, it’s just another drug-dealing, woman-beating Brockton shitbag that has no business having kids, making headlines for doing something insane again.
The handsome gent above is the alleged perpetrator in this case, 24-year-old Dominick Galvao. He is a domestic-abusing Brockton dirtbag with an extensive criminal record, blah, blah, blah you’ve heard it all before. He is seen here shirtless in court sporting a tattoo that reads “Violence Holds Order” across his chest. According to police he was “extremely defiant at his arraignment” and is insisting on representing himself. Great call Dom! That should go over well with the magistrate. Maybe at your trial you can show up shirtless too. Dat jury is gonna love dem tats.
Aside from shooting his pregnant girlfriend in the back and leaving her lying on the ground in a pool of her own blood, he also tried to gouge her contact lenses out of her eyes, threatened to kill her, he was caught with drugs when police finally arrested him and then he spat on court officers at his arraignment. So glad he is going to be a father!
WCVB – Galvao, of 19 Columbus St., Brockton, pleaded not guilty to assault to murder with a firearm and several other gun charges at his arraignment Friday afternoon in Brockton District Court.
Galvao and his pregnant girlfriend had been staying over at his grandmother’s house in Brockton overnight when Galvao got upset, because he did not want his girlfriend to go to sleep about 3:20 a.m., said Plymouth County Assistant District Attorney Courtney Fogharty.
He started yelling at her about going to sleep and attempted to force open her eyelids with his hands to rip her contact lenses out of her eyes, Fogharty said. When he couldn’t get her contacts out, he took out a long-barreled revolver, and pointed it at her head and said he was going to shoot her.
Galvao’s grandmother came downstairs after hearing the two arguing and told the victim to leave.
The two left the house together and were picked up in a truck by Galvao’s uncle, John Galvao, 28, of Brockton.
While John Galvao was giving the victim a ride home, she and Dominick Galvao began to argue about their unborn child.
“The defendant then threatened her, saying, ‘I won’t know the baby and neither will you. You won’t make it to know the baby, and (expletive) I will knock you out,'” Fogharty said.
John Galvao dropped the victim off at her house on West Chestnut Street, and as she was walking to her door, Dominick Galvao called her over and told her to get her cellphone from him.
As she reached for her phone, Dominick Galvao pulled it away from her and pulled out the gun and fired it at her, Fogharty said.
“She spun to her left in retreat, and the defendant shot one round, striking her in the right shoulder area,” Fogharty said.
John Galvao then sped off, leaving the woman bleeding on the ground by herself, Fogharty said.
The victim was taken to Boston Medical Center for treatment, and both she and her baby are expected to survive.
John Galvao was charged with being an accessory after the fact and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He was ordered held on $100,000 bail.
Judge Ronald Moynahan gave him a warning after being told that he spat at court officers while in lockup.
“If I have any more information provided to me that you are spitting at my court officers, I’m going to bring you back up here and we can deal with that here,” Moynahan said.
He was ordered held without bail until a dangerousness hearing Oct. 14.
Moynahan appointed attorney Jennifer Lokitis to provide Dominick Galvao with assistance during the hearing.
