One Down, One to Go

Jam Master Jay

At least one man is going down behind Jam Master Jay’s murder:

“One of the main suspects in the murder of Run-DMC group member Jam Master Jay was sentenced to 17-years in prison yesterday (April 22) for a series of robberies. Ronald ‘Tinard’ Washington [the suspect], a longtime friend of Jam Master Jay, allegedly confessed to being one of the two gunman who came into Jay’s 24/7 Recording Studio in Hollis, Queens, on October 30, 2002 and shot the pioneering DJ to death.

While he allegedly admitted to his role, the second gunman who allegedly pulled the trigger remains at large.”

It’s truly sick and disgusting how cops and official investigators drag their damned feet when it comes to black men getting gunned down. SMH.

    its not the cops its the dumb ass ghetto birds that promote the “No snitching/Stop Snitching” code.

    It’s a known fact the police invented the “Stop Snitching” movement.

    about time they got someone. This is truely sad can’t even trust your friends.

  • The truth


    F-no the cops didn’t start the “Stop Snitching’ Bullsh*t. That’s our invention.

    THAT is why our young men (who incidentally are killed 90% of the time by OTHER BLACK MEN) get murdered and the case is never solved.

    We are either too stupid (see the young idiots who embrace this idiocy) or too afraid to step up and take control of our urban communities.

    But like everything else, it feels better to blame someone else. That’s gotten us far hasn’t it? Pick up a mirror, THERE’S your problem.

    That is not the full story. This Tinnard character supposedly confessed to his girlfriend, not police. As for police dragging their feet, Jay was not in the studio alone and not one of the people that watched him get gunned down has cooperated with police. What do you expect them to build a case on?

  • crazy black lady

    why was he killed? was robbery a motive or something else?

  • Necy

    may the S.O.B ROTH in jail and later in HELL….

  • Serafina

    He was sentenced for the robberies he committed, the judge didn’t even take into consideration the fact that he was there when JMJ was killed.

    They hadn’t proscecuted him for the murder, therefore they couldnt use it to add more years onto his sentence.

    But im sure there will be someone behind bars that whips his azz for being there. Just because. And it’ll def be deserved.

    Who knows? Maybe he’ll get scurred being locked up with all those skrong men looking for some male p**** and he’ll sing like a canary and tell what really happened that night.

    On another note. I am so sick and tired of black people complaining about how violent their neighborhoods are, yet when they hold to key to making it safe and putting the thugs away, they turn the other cheek and say nothing.

    I know its hard and I know its scary, but damn, call one of those Anon Crimestopper numbers or something. Put the cops onto the right person.

    We dont have to like the police. But to make the streets safer, it may just be worth taking the flak by working with them sometimes.

  • And.....

    The No Snitching BS was started by the MAFIA. Since when did Black folks become the mob? This is just another example of us adopting ignorant sh*t from watching too much TV and without understanding the history and purpose of doing something.

    At least one of our hip-hop murders have been solved. I can’t imagine the agony and utter disgust his family is feeling KNOWING that everyone knows who killed JMJ and nobody will come forward. Thats being a hypocrit, because if the shoe was on the other foot, they would want to know and have closure in this. We are in a SAD SAD state.

  • Taylor

    yeah that snitching code thing hasn’t gotten out of control. sometimes situation call for it. now people are afraid to tell importnat things because they are scared of wat could happe to them.

    Best news I’ve heard all day! RIP JMJ – you’re a true inspiration!
