‘Triggahappy’ receives probation for shooting man in Athens

Hanif Rahim Ali

By Joe Johnson

A puported gang member with the nickname Triggahappy has been sentenced to probation in connection with his arrest over a year ago for shooting someone in a dispute concerning money.

In a plea bargain with prosecutors, 31-year-old Hanif Rahim Ali on Friday pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery by force in return for the dismissal of charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of certain felonies.

In accordance with the plea deal, a Superior Court judge sentenced Ali to seven years on probation and one year in confinement, which was reduced to time served for the period he spent in jail since being arrested in July.

According to police and court records, Ali was arrested for an incident that occurred on Dec. 27, 2022 at the Parkview Homes apartment complex to where Simoane Ashley Binns had taken a 54-year-old man with whom she had a dispute concerning money. After they arrived at a location in the 100 block of Florida Avenue, Ali reportedly shot the man in the leg.

Police have said that Ali belonged to the Bloods street gang, who was known to use the nicknames of Triggahappy and Hanif Blood.

Binns, who was arrested for aggravated assault, was said by police to have told the victim that she “would have someone harm him if he did not give her more money” and the victim was subsequently shot in a “set up" with Ali.

Although Binns had been arrested, the DA's office never sought an indictment by presenting her case to a grand jury.

The next time you hear a politician whining about “gun violence” remember that DA’s like Gonzalez routinely offer plea deals that dismiss gun charges. In this case, “Triggahappy” gets to walk on his gun crimes. He didn’t get that moniker from playing basketball. Of course, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession during the commission of a crime are both federal felonies. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the feds to prosecute. Congressional Democrats and the ‘President’ love to call for more gun control laws but they are weak on seeing any real punishment of criminals. They would rather harass law abiding citizens than make any honest attempt to reduce career criminals from using firearms illegally. #FJB

During this probationary period he is destined towards failure, unless we can somehow supply him with more money so he can live the lifestyle he deserves. How can we channel more of our tax dollars towards Trigga? He is so deserving and we are so inept.

The DA dropped the charges of “aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during the commission of certain felonies.”


Every other person on the planet, except the DA, understands the longer "TriggaNappy” is on the street the more likely someone will be murdered. Our DA is not only grossly incompetent, she is also an imbecile.
