Let me introduce you all to this fine, upstanding young Rhodes scholar. His name is Gianni Carter-Joyner, AKA “Lazer Blu” and he is really going places.
….And by “places”, of course, I mean, “Walpole State Prison for the next year-and-a-half to two years”.
“A 24-year-old Fall River man who was involved in a mid-day shooting incident near the Morton Middle School in Fall River was sentenced to serve three-and-half to four-and-a-half years in state prison after pleading guilty this week to a litany of firearm-related crimes, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III announced.
According to Gregg Miliote of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, Gianni Carter-Joyner pleaded guilty on Monday in Fall River Superior Court to indictments charging him with four counts of attempted assault and battery by discharge of a firearm, and one count each of possessing a large capacity feeding device and unlawful possession of ammunition.
On August 18, 2017, the defendant acted as a look-out/signaler for an incident on Weetamoe Street where an unidentified shooter fired several rounds at two occupied cars. The cars’ occupants had been at the Morton Middle School parking lot. As the cars pulled out of the lot, shots were fired. No one was struck but a home suffered damage. Occupants in the cars were uncooperative and would not identify the defendant. A neighbor saw the defendant, whom he recognized,, and said he gave a thumbs-up to the shooter prior to him shooting at the cars.
Then, on August 29, 2017, Fall River Police officers performed a motor vehicle stop of the defendant for speeding, and no inspection sticker. While verifying that the defendant’s license was suspended, officers saw the defendant reaching over to his right hand side, and then putting up his hoodie. During an inventory search of the vehicle, a large capacity magazine (15 round capacity) loaded with 10 rounds of live ammunition was located in a backpack on the passenger side backseat floor.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Michael Cahillane and the prison sentence was imposed by Judge Renee Dupuis.
“The defendant assisted the shooter in a brazen daytime shooting that could have had grave consequences. He was later stopped while in possession of a loaded magazine,” District Attorney Quinn said. “With a prior firearms conviction, he clearly is a danger to the community and needs to be locked up. Fortunately, he was held without bail as a danger to the public before his guilty plea.” “
What are the odds that this incident was the closest Lazer Blu over here has been to a school in the last fifteen years or so?
Nonetheless, Mr. Blu’s continued incarceration is clearly a crushing blow to the community, and so the most productive members available at 11:30am on a Wednesday flocked to the comments of the Fall River Reporter’s post to defend his good name and lament the tragic temporary loss of this pillar of the community.
I think everyone should listen to Tasha, she seems like an expert in class, integrity, and the English language.
Yeah, we’re clearly not dealing with a “real” criminal here,
Simmer down, Piggy Azalea. I’m sure his kid’s mother will figure out how to put dog filters on the baby and ignore his cries the other 3/4 of the day just fine on her own.
Besides, when one picture lifted off you Facebook is able to highlight everything you have to offer in this life, your opinion is invalid.
That’s tits and a disheveled section 8 apartment, homegirl. That’s all you got, and barely. Hush now.
Karmah claims to not even know this guy, but I suppose she had to show up to go “free muh boi”, because her mother named her “Karmah”.
I think it’s in the Fall River bylaws somewhere.
And she needed to fill her busy day of being an unemployed single mom, anyway.
Time well spent, Karmah. Time well spent.
But the real star of the show is this magnificent example of pedigree Ratchet Royalty.
Who was incensed over the level of disrespect shown to her baby daddy, just because he participated in a shooting in a school zone and got off with a sentence so lenient even the city of Fall River was displeased.
Thank you for that reasonable explanation, Queen Flea. The people outside the welfare den where you litter of crotch fruit sleep were “acting crazy”, so your boyfriend Lava Lamp Purple decided to sneak off and act as a lookout so his degenerate pals could start shooting at houses. Seems legit.
This is definitely the face of a rabid cheesehog who will slap you for disrespecting her baby daddy – make no mistake.
This isn’t her first time waiting out a bid in the comments section, I’d put money on it.
This chick clearly has an abundance of three things. Time,
Unfortunately for Strobe Light Yellow, though, it would appear that her loyalty doesn’t extend much further than the Facebook comments section of the local newspaper during regular business hours everyone else spends working.
What a crying shame. We’ll see you the same time next year, ladies, when Lightbulb Orange violates the terms of his parole!
