Re: “Latta mayor hires new police chief after town votes to override him

The whole thing is if being gay is no big deal, why be open about it? Is it to gain notoriety? Because they suffer from heterophobia? To show the world they are not concerned with what God says about morality? Or is it something they hide behind or exploit in a society that thrives on perversion? Wish someone would explain why anyone would feel compelled to disclose publicly what they do in private. Is it because deep down inside, they are not at all sure about the propriety of their behavior? Let's hear it from all the gays and lesbians out there. Is it any or all of the above?

Re: “The Agenda: Clemson architecture building approved; T-Rav gathering signatures; 25k jobs coming to Charleston

one of the most important considerations in designing a building is to be aware of it's surroundings, this building reminds me of the bank across from the hospital's on Calhoun, i'll bet it seemed real cool when they built it. a perfect example of insensitivity to the surrounding architecture

Because EVERY building in Charleston has to be drawn from a cookie-cutter pre 1861 catalogue, right?

European cities with 1000 year old buildings are confident enough to have modern architecture...but Charleston is somehow special?

Poor Lindsey Graham...Oh, woe is the GOP. They take in every crazed member of every right wing fringe group in the country to cobble together a "majority" (or in the case of the current House GOP, 1.4 million fewer votes than the Democratic "minority" thanks to extreme gerrymandering) and they expect to keep the inmates in line. Fools.
And, they don't have the guts to tell the people who call them RINOs that they are the actual RINOs and should run as Libertarians, Tea Party, or just plain old Freaks and see how they do without that establishment R after their names. Fools.

How many port strikes happen in the world's busiest container port (Shanghai) or the second busiest (Singapore)?

Oh, zero? I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Re: “NAACP on Denzel Curnell investigation: ‘Silence is not golden’

Dot Scott wants.....wait, no one cares what that racist wants.....never mind. And, while we are at it, why do those folks need "community leaders"? Can't they think for themselves? And the "elders" show up to put in their two cents worth. Why must they show up and say they represent the masses. I'd be ashamed of myself if the best one they can offer up is Dotty Scott.

Force the Longshoremen's Association to strike. It would be worth it to hear them whine louder and louder. I worked the docks in Philly and had to roust those bastards out of their naps in the empty box cars. What a bunch of aholes. Unions suck.

No not Al and Jesse, but citizens of the U.S. Hangings in MS. Martin in FL, Johnson in GA. The list goes on . If the US govt is going to support the Rise of the Conferacy, its time we ask for International Assistance. Perhaps Russia can help?

Re: “The Agenda: Carolina Day tmw; Sheheen-Haley close in poll; Sanford relieves himself

President Johnson like to pile into his car and drive around his ranch in Texas with a six pack of beer. His secret service crew was often hard pressed to keep up with him. Once he stopped to relieve himself and inadvertently christened one of his agents. Then he said, "I can do that because I'm the President." Glad Sanford at least warned Rutenburg to stay back..

Re: “NAACP on Denzel Curnell investigation: ‘Silence is not golden’

From what I have seen from several news sources he wasn't a gang banger, he was a depressed kid. Got sent home from basic training because of depression, his mother just passed, etc. One report quoted neighbors as saying he was somewhat introverted and stayed inside and played video games most of the time. The Army doesn't put you on suicide watch just because you are having a hard time adjusting during basic. And tell me where I missed it but no where above did I see anyone say he was involved in gang activity. I find it disgusting that the NAACP is trying to make this a criminal case and racial issue when the evidence that is out there is that it is a tragic suicide.

Re: “NAACP on Denzel Curnell investigation: ‘Silence is not golden’

Man it sure messes with us white people when a black kid dies and the "others" treat him like a human being and not automatically assume he was a gang-banger. Didn't you know, folks, that every person on the East Side is already a violent criminal just waiting for death? Oops! I called them "persons." There goes my humanity again.

Dot Scott has dropped some whoppers in her past, but this seems like a legitimate set of questions, all prompted by a whole lot of silence coming out of Charleston PD. The community is troubled by this teenager's death and they should be... ESPECIALLY IF IT WAS SUICIDE.

The most racist organization in Charleston. NAACP look at yourselves, you are literally standing on the sidelines blaming everyone else while the black community kills itself.

Re: “NAACP on Denzel Curnell investigation: ‘Silence is not golden’

The NAACP steps up to fight for "injustice", not for legitimate crimes. They are not speaking up only because a kid was shot. They are speaking up to make sure that the investigation is not mishandled, because of possible police involvement in the shooting. And there is more than enough history of police cover ups, to warrant such action anywhere in America. Also, the NAACP does fight to get more help from the communities and Law Enforcement Agencies in crime riddled areas. The news outlets just don't report on it.

Re: “NAACP on Denzel Curnell investigation: ‘Silence is not golden’

Of course, the "witnesses" who claim to have seen everything, are silent and "afraid" to talk to investigators. The only fear they have is that they will be subject to charges of obstruction of justice and making false statements to law enforcement if they stick to their stories, which appear less and less truthful as the facts come out (including facts released by the family attorney, Savage). The family wants answers? I understand they are devastated, but they accused a police officer of murder. Maybe they should ask themselves why they weren't aware of or concerned with Curnell's problems - after all, he was on suicide watch and sent home from basic training. Maybe the stepfather should ask himself why his firearm was not secured, in light of Curnell's problems. If the SLED report shows that Curnell killed himself, many people in the community need to examine why they bought into the mob mentality and social media hysteria based on hearsay....but they won't.
