"Slager then says he then stepped aside, pulled his pistol, and opened fire as Scott turned away."
While I support our Officers that protect us on a daily basis, the video clearly shows Scott already running away as Slager draws his weapon, aims, and then fires. Scott had not 'Just turned away'.
"Savage argues that the officers who would have been able to respond as back-up in a timely fashion were dispatched to serve warrants, retrieve items reported lost, or simply not on duty when Slager called for assistance. "
I can agree with this. Had another officer been there, this shooting may never have happened. Two officers have a much better chance to subdue a suspect prior to it escalating to this level. Further, many people resist thinking they can overpower one officer, but would think twice before taking on two of them.
Came to post that exact thing Kris. This is routine police work used against suspected criminals. Because the criminal in this case happens to be police, that makes it a problem all of a sudden?
Ironic that a cop should be played by the very trick they use on others.
I think you're too optimistic, I think they saw bad weather coming and ducked for cover. Now let's see who gets thrown under the bus.
Sorry bout that, hello666. When P&C updated their site this week, all their old links got borked. 🤔
These links are great! who woulda though, error 404??
@Ima: the wording is quite suspicious, more like they were testing the waters to see what they could get away with. But, hey they came to their senses.
The election doesn't need rigging. With his sexism, imagine if he were a female or if he were gay and how objectifying others would play out:
just wondering if this only became an error after the press found it...
It is my constitutional right to decide if I want/need an abortion with my doctor and whomever I choose, not some GOB gynotician, science-denying fundamentalist or anyone else. My body, my right, my personal decision. This continuous attack on women's health decisions by regressives imposing their personal religion on others, keeping women barefoot & pregnant, is another illustration of their perceived notion we aren't intelligent enough to make our own decisions.
Consider the type of situation in which a woman would conceal a pregnancy and its termination from her husband, and of course this would have only applied in the first 20 weeks. Abusive husbands often control their wives and foster dependency by keeping them pregnant. Marital rape, sabotaging contraception, all sorts of daring-do. I'm not idly hypothesizing, either; my wife worked for years at a DV shelter and I volunteered there regularly. Some marriages are far more Grimm than Disney.
And before anyone over-moralizes this: if she was cheating on him then it wasn't his kid either. Not our business, not the state's.
So women's rights say that sexual intercourse must be consensual.... but murdering the child that it may create doesn't require consent from the father. That logic seems flawed.
Can we trust an accused pedophile with an agenda to derail democratic lead prosecution because the GOP won't go after him - presumably because they love him so?:
Oh boy more angry rhetoric from a disgruntled MLK wanna be. How about some constructive conversation designed to evoke a real change. Nah lets just shake our fists and be angry right?
Their are none so blind as those who will not see.
No More hotels or apartments. Driving people who cannot afford housing in Charleston is not fair so they can work in the hospitality industry.
West Ashley, specifically HWY 61 near Bee's Ferry, has grown exponentially INSANE since 1998 - too much over-development & too much traffic to handle that historic highway - EVERYDAY it's like an EXODUS morning through evening when having to travel in either direction. And when it rains it pours & floods the neighborhood in front of my neighborhood and the one in front of that too. I've concluded that the City of Charleston and the Mayor just don't give a SHIT about this PART of the City since we don't attract TOURISTS like the PENINSULA.
So funny because I don't care about "t rav" and don't watch southern charm either
James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the womans posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since Ive seen him but just cant get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I dont wake up so I dont have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I dont think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and familyDr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my loverJames,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.
It's about time...all of this flooding is really taking a toll on the quality of life in West Ashley.
I mean really, does this really warrant news???? I guess for you liberals. Who cares what he thinks. And someone mentions "liars". Wow wee...look who is calling the kettle black...and am I allowed to say that? Some of you may think I am racist saying that. HRC not a liar? Ha!!!!! And I suggest informing yourselves on policy, rather than sex scandals...and what the Wikileaks emails are showing......what John Podesta ( you do know who he is) and HRC wrote to one another. You would think these idiots in the public eye, would hv been smart enough to hv written each other decent emails? But nope, just like Nixon, they think they are above it all...look at the people at Sony!!!! Well, if you take the time and see what Hillary and John wrote about the Catholics Evangelicals, the blacks, the latinos, and yes, us Jews and Asians...they did not discriminate. She actually has contempt for all us peon Americans...And let's face it, most men screw around. Half the men in DC cheat on their wives, with their secy's, or with young men....and now, we are getting so puritanical? Liberals? Who hv no problem aborting a baby when a woman is 8 months pregnant. Has no problem having transgenders using the same bathroom. But has a problem when a man talks about a woman"s boobs and behind? Really?.....you should all listen to yourselves...your high and mighty attitude. Shame on even printing the article....stupid.
