Cambridge Law Enforcement Pursuing Criminal Investigation Following Recent Music Video

Posted: Updated:
 CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Cambridge rap group Shockavelli has released a new music video, but this time, police are even more concerned about a perceived threat in the music video.

Police became aware of the video Wednesday morning.  The video can be seen by clicking here, but beware there is foul language.

Law enforcement, as well as the Dorchester County Board of Education, say they are concerned over a phrase that is about 2 minutes and 26 seconds into the video. It is difficult to understand, but they believe it says, "Bromwell better get your weight up---- Get a shot in your face ---what---You already know I'm gonna wack your ***** ***!  Where you at."  The asterisks mark expletives.

Bromwell is the last name of the principal at Cambridge South Dorchester High School.  Dorchester County State's Attorney Bill Jones said the group had issues with the school following last month's music video.

"Based on the information from the first video that was made, the concern is that this could be retaliation for maybe actions taken by the school," Jones said. "The school took the first video very seriously.  I suspect that the second one with the alleged threat contained therein was perhaps responsive to actions taken by the school the first time."

That perceived threat has attracted a criminal investigation into the matter to determine what laws were broken in this instance, if any.  Dorchester County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Henry Wagner said the board of education is conducting its own investigation with law enforcement, but says any threat against a student, teacher or parent is unacceptable.

Jones said the perceived threat is what makes this video more concerning than the last.

"The First Amendment is not a shield behind which you can hide and engage in criminal conduct," Jones said. "If this video does have what we in fact believe to be criminal conduct, in the threat against the person, we're going to investigate that."
