Re: “Anti-LGBT creationist Kevin Bryant could soon be first in line to become governor

seems like a never-ending supply of these people. Did something happen to them as children?

Re: “Shooting survivor, first responder take stand in Dylann Roof trial

Unfortunately, in this country you get a trial whether you deserve one or not. Its called Democracy. We even use a new rope to hang you with.

Where do we find these fossils? It is so embarrassing how we give a platform to idiots.

Re: “Shooting survivor, first responder take stand in Dylann Roof trial

Roof is not worth any of the tax payers money to have a trial nor to keep incarcerated. He should executed by a firering squad. Then maybe put in a pine box, and buried in a landfill. By the way I'd attend both his execution and funeral to make sure that it actually happened.

No, more like back to the 1650s.

Re: “What does the future hold for Burke's Stoney Field?

Pay me now or pay me later. Built on a dump in the 1960's, even then rain would make it a bog. Not much was ever done to take care of it.

Re: “Judge declares mistrial in case of Michael Slager

This story is what it is, that is Michael Slager became a bad cop, when he shot Walter Scott hitting him five times. It's obvious that one particular juror has a problem with that, being the case. In this case evidence against Slager isn't circumstantial, anyone that saw the video, saw that Scott was running from Slager not towards him.

All cops such as Slager take an oath to serve and protect. The day that Slager drew his weapon and fired eight times at Scott he wasn't at all living up to that oath.

Cops have to be held accountable for their actions, above all law abiding citizens. Slager has been charged, now he needs to be convicted.

Re: “Central Mosque of Charleston invites community to attend open house Sat. Dec. 3

I am a Trump supporter. Every single Trump supporter I know, has no issues with Islam & law abding Muslims. We do not agree with Sharia Law! The issue is with those who have hijacked the religion & are killing innocent people.
Please do not believe the mainstream media. Most Trump supporters are the opposite of how we are portrayed by the media and by the Clinton "cult" .It is so ugly how the media has been promoting a false narrative and how their viewers bought into it.

Re: “What does the future hold for Burke's Stoney Field?

CCSD is driving this train and they should not be as they are not putting any funding into the renovation. CCSD leadership is running scared from addressing the real options available. They are intimidated by African Amercian leadership whom I found to be very open-minded about the options available on the penisula. The renovation numbers as described above are way off City of Charleston estimates. I know all these comments to be factual as I spent better part of 10 months meeting with everyone from state, county, city, Citadel, etc. discussing the many options available. Going to take strong leader to take this issue on and take the lead (that leader has not emerged yet). That leadership does not exist right now at CCSD and I am hopeful that it is Mayor Tecklenburg that stands up and does the right thing. Building back at Stoney Field is not the right thing to do.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

Trump just found out he doesn't have the power or finesse to save ALL our jobs - just another corporate crony. https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteveryth…

Obama and Clinton need to address the nation ASAP about the numerous politically and racially violent incidents committed by their supporters. They need to calm their "people."

Trump needs to address the nation ASAP about the surrogate violence that is cropping up nationwide in his name. This is going to get much more dangerous and deadly unless he calms his "people".

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

^ Your dad didn't fight in a war to protect a flag. He fought to protect what the flag stands for, which are all of the freedoms we enjoy. One of those freedoms being the freedom to express oneself without reproach from the government. This includes flag burning. It's one of the great ironies in this country that people get so worked up about things like flag burning and not standing for the national anthem and not reciting the pledge of allegiance and still claim to love freedom. They only love the freedom that is convenient and doesn't make them feel uncomfortable. This makes them hypocrites. In World War 2 we were fighting AGAINST countries that did punish its own citizens for speaking out against the government.

Truthus, the bill Clinton CO-sponsored that you are referring to was to prevent flag burning when it was done to incite violence or terrorism. It was a few years after 9/11 when the histrionics about patriotism were still on full blast. I still don't agree with it but don't pretend that is anywhere near the same thing as what Donald Trump is saying now.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

@Truthrus: Hillary's bill protected flag burning in protest while criminalizing it in provocation. "Fighting words" are not protected speech. Points deducted for making it a bill, points deducted for making it a bill that is redundant, points awarded for protecting the right to protest. Trump's real problem statement is revocation of citizenship, which takes this from "ill advised" to "disastrous." Did Hillary include that in the SB she sponsored? Would you agree that Trump's idea is thus absolutely worse?

@Frank: I am a veteran and I have a deep and abiding belief in protection of unpopular speech, including burning the flag. My feelings are not what need protecting from the government, but instead peoples' right to express their grievances. So even if I was made to feel sick by seeing it, I feel sick about a lot of the protected speech that flies around this country.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

My dad volunteered for WW2 when he was 17. 17 years old! He & millions of other boys did the same in order to protect the American Flag. He passed last month at the age of 90. His casket was covered with the American flag! Let me ask all those "freedom of speech" supppoters, if that was your dad or brother or aister, who fought for our country, do you feel ok with some idiot burning our flag? Use a maegaphone, you piece of poop!!

And so did Hillary, she sponsored a bill trying to do the same. But that is an inconvenient truth that you wont mention. And laws along with court rulings change. and something else is then established law. And any time tupper says I would think, a reasonable person somewhere wishes he would.

Re: “Donald Trump wants to throw flag-burners in jail, but technically South Carolina has an old law that would do just that

I just hope that this rhetorical hand job was pleasing to its intended audience. Burning the flag in protest is protected speech as a matter of settled case law, but also revocation of citizenship is forbidden as a violation of the 8th Amendment as a matter of settled case law.

In unrelated news, Trump Org settled a fraud case with the state of NY for $25 million dollars, something that would normally flag a company as "never do business with these people again" under federal contracting practices. Welcome to Trump's America.

I would think that any president-elect that does not support free-speech should lose their citizenship AND spend a year in jail just before being ousted from this GREAT nation.
