Good Riddance to Human Waste - May 7, 2012, 04:25 PM

An ex-coworker's son was cut down by these jackasses who did a drive-by with an Ak-47 2 years ago. They ended up hitting multiple innocent people standing on the street.

This entire incident was precipitated by an argument over a lost costume jewelery bracelet which one of these dimwit shitbirds thought someone had stolen.


Quote:
According to evidence introduced by prosecutors, the violence began in March 2010, when Sanquan Carter attended a gathering at a Southeast Washington home. He called his brother after he couldn't find a cheap bracelet, encrusted with fake diamonds, that he'd worn and believed had been stolen.
Orlando Carter arrived at the home with Simms and Best. The men were carrying guns, and a shooting ensued during which one person, 20-year-old Jordan Howe, died. Howe's friends retaliated a day later by shooting Orlando Carter, but he survived.
Orlando Carter vowed revenge and conceived of a plan to kill mourners at Howe's funeral. Carter and his conspirators missed the funeral on March 30, but the group, which included Best, Bost and Simms, tracked down some of the mourners that night to a gathering on South Capitol Street and fired on them from a rented minivan.
The human sewage had the gall to show up for court in bowties, suit jackets, and glasses as if they were college students and choir boys.






Four District men were convicted of first-degree murder Monday for their roles in a series of attacks early in 2010 that left five people dead and eight wounded in the deadliest mass shootings in the city in decades. A fifth man was convicted of lesser charges in the attacks.

The verdict came after substantial deliberations in D.C. Superior Court. The trial began in February before Judge Ronna L. Beck, and the seven-woman, five-man jury began deliberations April 25.

Nathaniel Simms, 28, provided the most stirring testimony. Law students, lawyers and even other judges filled the audience to hear Simms testify over five days.

Simms was one of six Southeast Washington friends arrested after the March 30 drive-by shootings that capped off several days of violence beginning with a shooting outside a party March 22.

Simms was initially charged with first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to five counts of second-degree murder in exchange for cooperating with prosecutors and testifying during the trial.

Simms, the prosecution’s star witness, detailed the roles his neighborhood friends played in the shootings. He never wavered from his story, despite dozens of questions from defense attorneys, who portrayed him as a vengeful, disgruntled confessed murderer who fabricated the narrative. Simms gave an emotional account of how he aimed an AK-47-style assault rifle out the passenger-side rear window of a rented minivan and fired blindly into a crowd of people, many of them teenagers who had attended a funeral that day.

Prosecutors often held up the assault rifle, with its brown leather shoulder strap, causing some of the victims’ family members to burst into tears.


Convicted of five counts of first-degree murder as well as multiple assault, conspiracy, gun possession and destruction of property charges were Orlando Carter, 22, and Jeffrey D. Best, 23.

Robert Bost, 23, was convicted of four counts of first-degree murder. Orlando Carter’s brother Sanquan, 21, was convicted of one count of first-degree murder.

Lamar Williams, 23, was convicted of multiple counts of second-degree murder as well as conspiracy and gun possession charges.

Defense attorneys for four of the men had said their clients were innocent and not involved in the shootings. A fifth testified, offering various alibis.

As the jury foreman listed more than 200 guilty verdicts in a loud baritone, Best smiled and shook his head. Sanquan Carter tugged at his necktie. At one point, Best and Bost whispered to each other and smiled. Williams remained silent and looked straight ahead.

Beck is scheduled to sentence the men Sept. 11. All five face life in prison.

Deliberations took an unusual turn Thursday when a juror sent Beck a note requesting her release because she was feeling “pressure” to change her views — a request Beck denied. Several jurors declined to discuss any disagreements in the jury room, but also said their deliberations took a long time because of the complexity of the case and the prosecutors’ detailed presentation.

“I think they did an outstanding and professional job,” said one juror, a 43-year-old man, in an interview. “It was a complex case, with many facets.”

Prosecutors Michael Brittin, Bruce Hegyi and Adam Schwartz laid out an exhaustive case that included testimony from more than 100 witnesses and thousands of detailed — and sometimes graphic — exhibits that included crime scene photos, cellphone records, DNA reports and surveillance videos.

Witnesses frequently became visibly emotional. Several of the victims’ mothers testified, providing dramatic moments as they described how they learned about the killings.

In addition to challenging Simms’s testimony, defense attorneys also seized on the mistaken arrest of a 14-year-old who was initially charged with 41 counts, including murder and other charges, after two police officers mistakenly identified him as the driver of the minivan. The teen’s arrest made headlines nationwide.

But the teen was later released after Simms told authorities that he was not involved. Defense attorneys argued that authorities were similarly mistaken about their clients’ roles.

Best was the only defendant to take the stand. He testified that he was not involved in any of the shootings and was either home, on the street selling marijuana or at his girlfriend’s house when they took place.

But prosecutors submitted cellphone records that showed repeated phone calls between Best and the other men prior to the shootings, and said Best’s DNA was found on one of the jackets he was wearing at the time of one of the shootings.

The shootings, which covered eight days, began outside a party in the 1300 block of Alabama Avenue SE in the early hours of March 22, 2010. Authorities said three men opened fire on a group of people at the party, killing Jordan Howe, 20, and wounding two others.

Sanquan Carter, prosecutors argued, became angry when the gold-colored bracelet he had placed on a bedroom dresser disappeared. He telephoned his brother Orlando for assistance, telling him he had been robbed.

Orlando Carter, Simms and Best arrived at the party with weapons, and the Carter brothers and Best opened fire into a crowd, killing Howe and wounding two other partygoers.

But none of the people who were shot knew anything about the bracelet. A 20-year-old woman testified that she placed it on her wrist while Sanquan Carter’s back was turned, left the party and wore it home.

During closing arguments, Sanquan Carter’s attorneys argued that their client was defending himself during the shooting. He only called his brother to arrange a ride home, they argued, and one of the other partygoers motioned as if to suggest that he had a gun in his waistband, prompting Carter to shoot in fear for his life. No one else at the party was found to have a weapon.

A day after the Alabama Avenue shootings, Sanquan Carter was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. That same day, according to authorities and court testimony, some of Howe’s friends attempted to kill Orlando Carter in retaliation for their friend’s slaying. Carter survived the shooting, authorities said, and began planning revenge.

Howe’s funeral was March 30. That day, according to authorities, Carter steered a rented minivan as he, Simms, Best and Bost drove into a Southeast Washington neighborhood in search of weapons.

At an apartment complex called the Wingate on Galveston Street SW, Best and Bost shot and killed Tavon Nelson, 17, as they tried to rob him of a handgun.

Minutes later, those three and Simms drove up on a group standing on a sidewalk in the 4000 block of South Capitol Street, where teens were wearing memorial T-shirts and carrying programs from Howe’s funeral. Carter, the driver, brought the minivan to a brief stop in front of the crowd and began shooting.

Bri*shell “Bri” Jones, 16, DaVaughn Boyd, 19, and William Jones III, 19, died in that shooting. Six were wounded. None of the victims was connected to Orlando Carter’s shooting, according to testimony.

Several of the victims’ family members attended each day of the trial and seemed to bond during the proceedings. Howe’s mother, Diane Howe, said she woke up Monday morning at 3 a.m. in tears with the feeling that the verdict was near.

She came to the courthouse straight from her job as a Metrobus driver, and she wore her uniform as the verdicts were read.

“They got what they deserved,” she said later. “They were nothing but devils. I hope they will never see the streets again, because they took so many lives and hurt so many families.

“They took my only child,” Howe said. “He was my all. He was my world.”

Williams was not accused of pulling the trigger in any of the shootings, and his attorney argued that he should not be charged with first-degree murder. But prosecutors said Williams supplied the weapons used in the Alabama Avenue and South Capitol Street shootings and was present when the men planned the shootings.

Prosecutors also said Williams, along with Simms, investigated the details of Howe’s funeral and relayed them to Orlando Carter.

I wonder when the black community is really going to say enough is enough.

When the young black male is 50X times more likely to die of homicide, isn't it time for a cultural shift from glorifying violence against women, eachother, and the thug lifestyle?

Had a buddy that grew up in SE. He called it the "Wild, Wild West".

This story certainly sounds like it. Hatfields and McCoys all over again - bunch of people killing each other over stupid shit.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

True. Strict gun control in DC is working wonders and keeping its citizens safe.

Inner cities have always been the most dangerous places to live... during the "Wild Wild West" time period, New York/ Chicago/ Boston had far more violence.

I see DC shares one of WV's faults: no death penalty.

Yes. Instead they just send them out to Lorton at taxpayer expense to be warehoused until they die - funeral at taxpayer expense.

If this would have happened just a scant 3 miles South of their location they would have been in MD and surely this would have garnered MD's rarely used Death Penalty option.

Wouldn't have happened in MD ... people aren't allowed to carry guns so gun crime is impossible there

DC is ruled it seems by the far left. I don't get how they keep doing the same thing every year, every law passage, every ex con politcian elected, politician exposed as being crooked. Each time they are expecting different results time after time.

Isn't their a saying about that??
