Gang Member Does The Crime, But Not The Time

posted on October 14, 2015

His nickname is Smack, and the Dymes R Us gang member has amassed a long rap sheet in his short life. The 26-year-old Bronx resident was first arrested at 16 for gang assault and has notched 11 arrests since—with charges including robbery, weapons possession and selling drugs. 

On Monday night, Dalone “Smack” Jamison shot and killed a woman and injured two more outside a New York nightclub. He remains at large. The father of the victim is outraged. “I just hope the police catch him before I do,” warns Wally Faussett. “I will search for him myself because he should pay.” Astonishingly, Jamison has paid very little for his crimes to date, serving virtually no jail time.

New York’s strict gun control laws already give criminals the upper hand. Add in a court system that enables these career offenders to remain on the street, and it’s a deadly equation for residents.
