[Screengrab from February 2015]

Shaquille Fuller was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for shooting a 19-year-old man in December 2014 and then killing an aspiring rapper on Avenue D in February 2015, the Manhattan District Attorney announced yesterday.

On April 4, a New York State Supreme Court jury found Fuller, 24, an Avenue D resident, guilty of all the charges in the indictments against him: Murder, Attempted Murder, and Assault in the Second Degrees; Attempted Assault in the First Degree; and four counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree.

Per DA Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. in a statement:

"This Office is committed to securing the strongest possible sentences for those who engage in gun violence,” said District Attorney Vance. “As this appropriately lengthy sentence illustrates, we will seek maximum penalties for those responsible for violent crime in order to keep our communities safe."

Shemrod Isaac, who went by "Sham Da God," was shot and killed following a reported dispute on a sidewalk outside the Lillian Wald Houses at 20 Avenue D on Feb. 23, 2015. Isaac, 33, was a father to a 6-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy.

Good riddance. I hope he and Steve Croman get to bond.

Speaking with a cop recently, he told me that there are people with guns every day on Ave. D and 8th Street. I said to him that the housing prisons, er projects there, should have guards with metal detectors on the ground floor of every unit. Of course, they would end up getting paid off by the gun junkies who reside there.
A better solution would be for the criminal entity known as the government to stop building those "houses" in the first place, and to allow the people who live there to own them, with a long-term tax abatement. Ownership would incentive them to keep the gun junkies out. For example, if they were coops, there would be rules the owner-residents would have to abide by.
When were those prisons built? Before or during the "Great Society" reign of LBJ--Lying Badass Jackass a k a Agent Orange Man?

Bill for liberty, anarchy and privatizing the welfare prisons

This is how you clean up Avenues A-D:

A beat cop on each side of the street and a cop car on each alphabet avenue 24-7.
