Here is what the Shard is cooking.
We have been learning a lot about crime and punishment since starting this project. Does Shard know he can be charged federally for having firearms while he's manufacturing crack?
Rashard also claims to have a Mac-11. The picture below was NOT taken from his page, but we thought those unfamiliar with firearms might want to see one.
Rashard also likes to show off all the cash he is making from cooking up that crack.
Have you folks read about all the home invasions in the news lately? As it turns out, most home invasions are the result of some drug dealer flashing his cash and drugs, whether in person or on Facebook, and the competition deciding to pay him a not so cordial visit and take his stash. They just have to show it off, though.
Rashard hails from an area of North Charleston known as "The Macon". His general area of operations appears to be in the Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood near the old naval base. Florida Avenue to be specific.
Haven't there been a few CPAD marches in that neighborhood in an effort to stop the drug dealing and associated violence? Somehow, I don't think the good citizens or the North Charleston Police Department will accept Rashards insincere mea culpa below.
Right back at ya, Rashard. You're a real prince.
Let's examine Rashard's arrest history.
On 20 December, 2005 Rashard was arrested and charged with Resisting Arrest, Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol and Unlawful Possession of a Pistol by a person under 21. As we have seen in previous examinations, the solicitor decided not prosecute a single one of these charges four months later. We are starting to wonder if some of the thugs receiving these sweet deals actually turned rat. What other explanation is there for why a solicitor would dismiss charges against a person who resisted arrest while armed?
In September of 2008 Rashard was charged with Possession of Cocaine Base. Yeah, the same stuff he's showing us in that photo above which was dated March 27th, 2012. The solicitor and the judge let him plead out and gave him time served and one year of probation.
April of 2009 brought a charge of Assault With Intent to Kill. Ten months later the solicitor and the judge let him cop a plea. He was sentenced to three-hundred days. Do the match between the date of arrest and the date of the plea and you will see Rashard walked free after the plea. Basically, he was given time served in the county jail.
November 2010 brought charges of Possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana and Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana Near a School. Almost three months later he was again allowed to plead guilty. This time to the possession charge and sentenced to ninety-four days. Once again, probably the amount of time he had already served in the county jail. The distribution charge was dismissed by the solicitor.
Alright citizens. Once again, we see there is a problem in Charleston. Weak, and in most cases NO prosecution combined with relatively light sentences tell these thugs they can do anything, anytime, anywhere and not worry about the consequences. We might as well hand them the keys to everything and let them run wild.
