police slang for street justice in the form of a guilty person getting shot. (refers to the brass casings)
Did you hear? Benny managed to get a good lawyer and walked on all charges; & you just KNOW he was the one who stabbed the guy, even though the jury gave him a not guilty verdict!
Yeah, but then the guy's family shot him in the head the day after he was let out of jail -- that was the REAL verdict, man, a brass verdict
Fuck him, piece of shit, anyway!
