Ever since Jorge Zambrano killed Auburn Police Officer Ron Tarentino we’ve been keeping a closer eye on the courthouse records to see just what type of criminals that District Attorney Joe Early’s office and lenient judges are releasing back into our society on a daily basis. Let’s start with this guy:

Kenneth P. Szlyk, 29, of 555 Worcester St., Apt. 310, Southbridge, charges of intimidating an official, disturbing the peace, and four counts of possession of a large-capacity firearm, dismissed by request of the prosecution; three counts of improper storage of a firearm, continued without a finding until Feb. 23, 2017, ordered 9 months of probation, assessed $585 probation fees.

Intimidating an official and four counts of possession of a large capacity firearm. Dismissed BY REQUEST OF THE PROSECUTION!!!! Wait….what?? Why is Joe Early’s office dismissing serious charges like this? Isn’t it their job to be the hard ass and the defendant’s lawyer’s job to request dismissal of charges? Am I missing something here?


Then there’s this one:

Martin Garro Jr., 27, of 57 Endicott St., Worcester, charged with refusing to identify himself to police, driving with a suspended license (subsequent offense), amended from driving with a suspended license, driving improperly, failing to wear a seat belt, and possession of an open container of alcohol in a vehicle, continued to July 27.

Does the name Martin Garro Jr. ring a bell? He’s Giancarlo’ Zambrano’s friend/associate who goes on extravagant trips with the cop killer’s criminal brother and his parole officer girlfriend Ashley Losapio:


If you’re friends with a Zambrano, it’s like a rule that you never get your car registered or have a valid license. After all, you just make a quick phone call to Giancarlo because he’s got the crooked boo-bear in the courthouse who can help with your “problems.”

Finally there’s this guy:

Devon R. Carpenter, 24, of 82 Fox St., Worcester, charged with driving with a suspended license, filed with a guilty finding; driving an unregistered vehicle, found responsible, filed; and using a vehicle without authority, dismissed without prejudice.

Driving with a suspended license in an unregistered vehicle. Pretty standard day at the courthouse. But what’s alarming is that here is something completely different that this individual was arrested for two weeks earlier:

On Monday, May 30th at approximately 6:30 pm, members of the Worcester Police Gang Unit were on patrol in the area of Dorchester Street. While on patrol, officers observed a male stopped on a moped at the intersection of Dorchester and Vernon Streets. Officers observed the male (later identified as Devon Carpenter, 24 years old of 82 Fox Street) engage in several motor vehicle violations, after which officers initiated a stop of the moped in the area of 34 Dorchester Street.

Once stopped, officers observed Carpenter jump off the moped and begin backing away from it. Based on Carpenter’s actions, officers believed he may attempt to flee the stop. Carpenter informed officers that he did not have a license, but stated that he had a permit. He informed officers that the permit was inside the seat of the moped. Carpenter handed the keys to officers so they could retrieve the identification from under the seat of the moped.

Using the keys provided by Carpenter, officers opened the seat and discovered a backpack. Officers picked up the backpack and immediately felt a heavy object inside consistent with the weight and feel of a firearm. They felt a second object in the bag that was also consistent with the size of a firearm. Officers opened the bag and discovered a metallic Ruger “Single-Six” .22 caliber revolver. Officers also discovered a handgun style BB gun in the backpack.

A check through CJIS revealed that Carpenter’s license to operate a motor vehicle in Massachusetts is suspended. The check also revealed that Carpenter does not have a license to carry a firearm.Worcester Police Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene and recovered the firearm.

Carpenter was arrested and charged with Carrying a Firearm without a License, Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended License, Operating a Moped without a Helmet, and Right Turn Violation. He was arraigned today in Worcester District Court.

Carrying around an unregistered gun in a vehicle he is not licensed to drive. Gets arrested for something similar two weeks later and gets no punishment. I can see that absolutely nothing has changed in the weeks since Ron Tarentino was assassinated by a repeat offender. I can see that Joe Early’s office has learned absolutely nothing and does not plan to change its approach to criminal justice at all. Judges have ruled that the other judges who let Jorge Zambrano go time and time again did a great job. Everything is fine here. So a cop was killed? Shit happens. That’s the philosophy right now.

Time to add Joe Early to the Turtleboy Sports graveyard. He’s really good at hosting $100 minimum donation fundraisers:


But he’s not so good at letting criminals know that they’ll be held responsible for their crimes. When is he up for reelection? Let’s get someone to run against him. It will be an uphill battle since he’s planted there by the McGovern Crime Family and his father preceded Jim McGovern as Congressman in Worcester for 18 straight years. But this is what we do at Turtleboy – we take out the trash.

We’ll end with this thought. In the days since 49 innocent people were murdered by a man whose homophobia was a direct result of his ties to radical Islam, all we’ve heard from Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton is how it’s all the fault of legal gun owners. Hey, here’s an idea – when you catch people with unregistered guns like the ones we just found in the Worcester Courthouse records, try holding them accountable before you push new restrictions on people who are obeying the law. Oh wait, I forgot – it’s an election year. Let’s blame it all on Trump for being a racist and call it a day.

      I dont agree with that- I think the laws are fkd up and the DAs office are bound to this idiocy and have to toe the line or else the charges can get dropped. Its like they have to tip toe because if every t is crossed, every i isnt dotted- the defense can and will do what they can to get their client off- even if the lawyer KNOWS they are guilty.

    What I find ironic is the officer standing behind Joe is the same officer that does the gun licensing in Auburn. The same officer who, 2 yrs after I applied for my LTC due to the fact that my house was robbed by an ahole and that I have a fairly psychotic stepbrother- I am still waiting. I have sent him a couple emails- to no response. Im giving him until monday, then Im calling the Chief and if that doesnt get it done, Im gonna have to go over their heads and call the Staties. I have NO record beyond taking my moms car without permission when I was 18, and that was dismissed without a finding. No violent crimes, no criminal record really. No serious alcohol/drug abuse etc. Here I am trying to go through the LEGAL process and these tools get guns, no license and get slapped on the wrist- wtf? Does it pay to try to be a law abiding citizen these days?

    And this has been going on for years. Pubi used to have a binder of all these cases but became too big. Virtually ever shooting in this City is committed by a thug with at two violent firearm priors

    Joe is a good guy but he may have to go. Time and time again firearm charges dropped when they should be taken to trial. Especially the egregious ones. And what says our quiet state delegation? Reps O’Day? Mahoney ? Donahue ? Keefe ? Busy drafting more useless laws ? TB hit this on the head. It is the DA and the Judges responsible and also the State Reps.

    Thank you for finally looking into this (You need to follow all gun cases in Worcester) as they all get dismissed …Just goes on an on..Has to be an angle being played by Worcester politicians or by Early

    Turtleboy. Google massachusetts bartley-fox law, requires a one year minimum sentence if caught with firearm and no LTC

    When I was a kid in 1986 I got stopped for no license,speeding,attaching plates,failure to stop and no insurance. I was 16. The judge threw the book at me,big fines,had to sell the car to pay them,and couldn’t get my license till I was 18.
    If you do the same thing today and have illegal guns on you,they throw out the gun charge and file the rest,maybe charge $100 court costs. What the hell is society coming to? No accountability at all any more.
    I learned my lesson,nowadays you don’t need to. Judges don’t care.

    What’s the surprise? The Medical Industry needs cancer. The Judicial industry needs criminals and litigation. The Government industry needs lots of drones to vote for the queen.

    Many of these offenders slip through the system. Seems like many times, people get busted. They’re many who try to defend them, one way or another. Also, politics are involved in much of this. That includes Early, McGovern and many others. They are all part of the system. When something really bad happens. The spin is commenced quickly with lightning-speed !

    Does Pocahontas or Hilliary think the gun walked to the Orlando bar,or did it take a closet fag murderer to carry it in?

    Early isn’t really part of McGovern’s crew. He operates on periphery of them.

      He’s still a Worcester County Democrat. Even if he isn’t in the crew, he still benefits

    RE: the first example where the case was dismissed by request of the prosecution. Sometimes, prosecution requested dismissals are a result of poorly executed police work. None of the details of the events leading up to the arrest and firearm charges are included so it cant be determined for sure but it could be a situation where the cops did not get a warrant properly, there was simply not enough evidence to support a conviction or a number of other possibilities.

    If they try to go to court with a real bad case, there is the possibility that ALL charges would be tossed so they find a deal that the criminal will agree with so something sticks.

    Its likely not going to be the last time he has a run in with the law and hopefully the next time they will have a better case. And when they do win the next case, the judge will see all of his past charges (dismissed or not) before determining sentencing.

      what the article doesn’t say here is that he had a license to carry, was in his own home, happened to have guns out of the safe, and this was the first offence. Just a bit of fyi for those who didn’t see the full article 🙂

        If what you are saying is true then the charges are actually starting to sound trumped up.
