A 16-year-old aspiring rapper, who allegedly shot an NYPD cop in the Bronx last month, is back in custody just one week after posting bail with money he received from a record deal.
Camrin Williams, 16, who goes by his rapper name C Blu, is back at the Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn Thursday on a probation violation.
‘We’re glad that a cop-shooter is back off the street, but this revolving door for a repeat gun offender makes no sense whatsoever,’ Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch said.
‘It should be clear to every New Yorker that our justice system is broken in many places,’ he added. ‘Our lawmakers need to prioritize fixing it above everything else.’
Williams was out on probation from a 2020 gun possession case last month when he got into a scuffle with police in Belmont on January 18 and allegedly shot 27-year-old NYPD officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg.
Sources told the that the gun Williams allegedly used to shoot the officer violated the terms of his probation from the earlier case.
It is remains unclear why he wasn’t jailed for the probation violation following the police shooting.

Following the shooting last month, the teen was immediately arrested and his bond was set at $250,000. It’s unclear why he wasn’t charged with probation violation during the arrest.
On January 27, Williams posted bond with money he reportedly received from signing a recording contract with Interscope Records.
His bail release caused an outrage among some city officials, including PBA president Pat Lynch.
‘If anybody wants to know why we have a crisis of violence in this city, or why we’re about to bury two hero police officers, look no further than this disgraceful bail release,’ said Lynch, who noted that two NYPD officers were shot and 메리트카지노 killed last week – the first since July 2017. Five officers have been shot in New York City so far this year.
‘This individual chose to carry illegal guns twice,’ he said.
‘He chose to fight with and shoot a New York City police officer. There’s no reason to believe he won’t do the exact same thing when he’s out on the street tonight.
‘Shame on Judge Denis Boyle for allowing this to happen.
‘The people of the Bronx won’t be safe as long as he’s on the bench.’
Williams fought with police officers last month when they responded to reports of unrest, and refused to comply with their orders to remove his hands from his pockets.
He began fighting with one of the officers and during the tussle, the gun went off and a single bullet struck and wounded Pennant and hit Williams in the groin.
Pennant was released from the hospital just hours later on January 19.

Williams, identified as a member of a subset of the Crips, was also taken to hospital before being taken to juvenile detention.
Boyle, an Acting Bronx Supreme Court Justice, who set Williams’ bond, was previously was soft on a 16-year-old who went on to murder a 34-year-old father of two in May of 2021.
Boyle has a reputation for being overly lenient on young offenders and set bail at $250,000 despite prosecutors call for Williams to be held without bail.
Williams accepted the services of ‘bail bondsman to the stars’ Ira Judelson, who has in the past worked with the likes of DMX, Ja Rule, Harvey Weinstein and 솔카지노 Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
After Williams’ release last week, his attorney, Dawn Florio touted his career to the judge.
Florio, much like Judelson, has a history with famous clients, including fellow troubled rapper 6ix9ine, formerly Tekashi69.
‘He has a very promising career,’ Florio told Judge Boyle.
‘Not only does he sing, rap, he writes his own music.
‘One of his songs on YouTube has 8 million views.’
During the hearing, Williams told Florio: ‘Please tell the judge I’ll come back to court every time.’
Florio did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.
