A judge from Bronx sided with drill rapper C Blu after his arrest. It doesn’t mean that C Blu is fully off the hook after being brought on the charges of shooting a police officer. However, the judge ruled that the rapper should get his trial as a juvenile.

Bronx Judge Naita Semaj said that the arresting officer’s testimony “had no value,” and deemed him “incredible and unreliable.” The judge said that Camrin “C Blu” Williams did in fact have a gun on January 18th, the cops, including Bronx Officer Taulant Gjonbalaj, had no grounds to start their confrontation.

Naita Semaj elaborated that the offers did not have any real reason to detain the 16-year-old rapper. The judge added that no officer even tried to create a legitimate reason for the confrontation and the detaining of the rapper.

There was absolutely zero reason for any of those officers to approach this individual. They approached him, they detained him, they searched him, and no officer even bothered to come up with a halfway legitimate reason for any of that.

The cops protested by claiming that the rapper was along with a “disorderly crowd.” They added that he refused to take orders from them to take his hands out of his pockets.

Williams allegedly shot his own leg, and the same bullet he’d fired ended up striking officer Kaseem Pennant in the leg. The two were then hospitalized, and have come to reach a healthy level of recovery.

The drill rap scene is notorious for its links to crime and shootings. The incident involving C Blu was one of the few recent shootings that trace back to the scene. The genre was kickstarted and pioneered by rapper Bobby Shmurda, who got off jail last year himself.
