Video Showing Man With Gun Leads To 18-Year Sentence

POSTED: 5:58 pm EST March 2, 2007
UPDATED: 6:16 pm EST March 2, 2007

COCOA, Fla. -- A Brevard County man sealed his own fate by actually videotaping himself with a gun and even singing about it. It turned out he was a convicted felon who wasn't supposed to have a gun.

The Cocoa man was sentenced to 18 years in prison after investigators found that tape, in which he also bragged about how many people he had shot.

All investigators had was the recording on a DVD and that was all they needed to put away a man who was going around playing with a semi-automatic handgun like it was a trophy.

"I get emotional, I love my Glock," Alexander Alvarado sings on the recording.

Love has been known to get lots of people in trouble, but it was love for a handgun that got Alvarado sent away. He apparently shot the home video of him cruising the streets of Cocoa with an unidentified driver. They call themselves the Dukes of Hazard.

The video tape was discovered after another car was ditched following a high-speed chase in Cocoa. Investigators recognized Alvarado, a convicted felon who was just released from prison a month earlier and was forbidden from being in possession of a firearm.

Among the rapping and the showboating, Alvarado gloats about how bullets from his weapon could easily kill someone.

"You thought I was playing. This is a little something which will rearrange a n***ers chest cavity," he said on the recording and then points out three markings on the side of the pistol, apparently representing victims.

"You see the three bodies?" he asks on the recording.

Authorities don't know if the weapon was ever actually used. In this case, they didn't need to.

Investigators ultimately did discover the gun was stolen from a car in Indialantic. It was never found, but all they needed to find was the video of Alvarado with the gun and the convict is now left singing a new tune inside a federal penitentiary.

Because Alvarado was convicted and sentenced in federal court and will be going to federal prison, he won't get out and won't be making any home movies until the entire 18 years are served.

You were in HS like what 4 years ago? :p

When I was in HS 20 yrs. ago there was no such thing as a paintball marker, it hadn't been invented yet, and video cameras were the size of an XBox using at the smallest cellphone sized tapes.

I would pay big money to be able to be like 16 again in modern day HS.
Kids now days have got it stupid made!!!

10 min. of Google vs. hours scouring racks at the library (library is far more fun though, IMHO)
Wikipedia vs. Funk & Wagnalls encyclopedia
e-Mail vs. snail mail and post cards (Mrs. Janq has all the postcards I used to send her pre-dating the introduction of e-mail)
Cell phone vs. 'grapevine'
Instant messaging and text messaging vs. sliding hand written notes in the vent of peoples lockers in between classes and passing notes in class
Paintballs vs. spitballs and dodgeball
Bangbros.com vs. SuperTV and Cinemax after 10PM
Victoria Secrets catalog vs. J.C. Penney & Sears catalog of the womens undergarments section
NASIOC/OT vs. Life

Imagine what shit will be like for kids 20 yrs. from now considering how relatively tame stuff was for folks 40 years ago.
