Re: “Skatepark could have 520-foot street course, pro-level bowl

Bmx riders are getting the minority treatment. Pegs are made of metal just like skate trucks. Suck it up and share the park.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

You have confirmed for all those who wonder that nude does not equal lewd nor does it have any sexual implications at all. We live in Florida and are members of a family nudist park. I will state unashamedly that all people owe it to themselves to try it at least once. Put it on your bucket list and face this universal fear for once in your life. The experience will not be as you imagine. You will feel the freeest you have ever been. You will feel the most accepted and least judged ever. Then make your judgment.

You'll be proud until Hilary does something wrong and then you'll deny ever supporting or voting for her.

Re: “Delegate blog: "I’ll be proud to tell my children how I helped elect the first female president"

You will tell your children that you sanctioned, and supported, someone who was a liar, a cheat, helped kill US citizens in Libya, took millions from foreign governments for favorable treatment as a Sec. Of State? And that you supported one of the biggest losers ever in a presidential election? Over 70% of the general public does not trust her now, and after the next round of hacked emails comes out, that rating will get much worse.

Same if your girlfriend/boyfriend lied to you that much and deleted all their emails, takes money from strangers for "services", let four of your friends die in a foreign country, you would not trust them as far as you can spit.

Re: “Police ballistic vests are a greenlight for CPD to militarize

Retired Sheepdog, why blame Obama? He has opposed the killings of police officers, he is very compassionate on police in general. He just does not like when some officers behave irresponsibly, like stopping blacks for no reason except they are black. Sure, Obama is not perfect, but then nobody is. Obama has been the best president this country has ever had. All previous presidents had major faults.

Re: “The Agenda: Clinton accepts nomination; More downtown hotels; DOT staffers in corruption flap

So, not only do we have lots and lots of guys leaning on shovels while one or two actually work, but the contractors who hired them are in the "fix", as well as the DOT folks who got kickbacks. Nice to see it is business as usual with the SC Highway Dept. Maybe some day one of our governors will do something about it.

"Bill gets Personal", oh yes indeed he sure does. He's also got a baton that he would like to pass along to a few of the new interns once he gets settled in at the White House.

Re: “Police ballistic vests are a greenlight for CPD to militarize

Almost all police everywhere in the US have been wearing body armor for decades. However, that "soft" body armor is only rated to stop pistol and shotgun projectiles.

This is "hard" body armor which can stop rifle rounds (it's steel or ceramic). I am sure the Charleston SWAT team already has this. I guess they are buying more now since BLM nutjobs want to assassinate police.

Re: “Delegate blog: Bill gets personal and Obama passes the baton

Trayvon Martin wasn't killed due to police violence. Michael Brown's mother shouldn't have been there as his killing was justified by the DOJ, and where are the father's of those killed? As for Obama, he said previously that hillary wasn't fit for the presidency. Was he lying then or now?

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison,

Never in my life have I responded to an article on the internet. I’m not a ‘comment’ kind of person, but I read this a few days ago and it won’t let me go. Had we ever met, I feel like there is much I would have liked to talk to you about. Since that is not possible, I wanted to share something that I hope does not offend you. You ended your story with, “If there’s a heaven, or whatever, I’ll see you there.” In the book of Revelation, God gives the apostle John a vision of heaven. Here’s some of what he said. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away… I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.” I have a feeling I am one of many who have wondered about your faith and tried to “save your soul” before your days are done. If you’re not a believer, I empathize with the irritation that comments like this can cause. I resisted Christianity for years. As I got older, I realized my views were based on what I wanted to be true, not what is objectively true. God either exists or he doesn’t. Either way, my feelings have nothing to do with it. After a long period of research, reading, talking to folks much wiser than me, etc. I became convinced that Jesus is who He said He is – the Son of God – and that as inexplicable as it seems, His death opened the door to heaven for us - an undeserving people in need of forgiveness. It’s hard to comprehend, but God loves you so much, that he would rather send his Son on a suicide mission to rescue you, rather than spend one day in eternity without you. If, like me, you have been resisting Him, I pray that you give Him a chance. Heaven is real; there are no “ifs” about it. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” It’s obvious that many people love you Alison, but none more than Him. I hope to see you there.

Re: “Blotter: Gotta piss 'em off

The SCANA (NYSE:SCG) /SCE&G INVESTMENT of the TWO NEW NUCLEAR UNITS IN JENKINSVILLE IS NOT FOR A BASE LOAD FACILITY!
Therefore, SC Base Load Review Act CANNOT be a LEGAL GROUND for overcharging SCE&G kWh ratepayers. PERIOD!
There are basic physics formula = Energy = Power x Time and that the Base Load is 100% (24/7 = 365 days annually = 8760 hours per year) time in operation. BLRA 70% apply to rated Power, which can be adjusted to real demands. Those simple rules have being learned in less than ONE hour by my students (in Europe and in SC). The “public servants” who were present in this ORS/PSC billion-dollar decision could not learn these formulas since 2008.
In all annual requests (9th time since 2008) SCANA + ORS + PSC are showing to over three million victims “their arrogant power of monopolistic slavery”. In 21st Century SC kWh ratepayers and SC taxpayers voices are ignored but their money is taken illegally anyway - a billion after a billion dollars! Also some$$ are used for bribing “public servants”. May I, as an American teacher (being placed in top 2% among them by my cum laude students), deliver them a grade “F”? But the question still is “who will fire these servants”, Donald J. Trump? Is it funny?
After a reading, do you have your own idea how to end this scandal where white-collar criminals are stealing your money?
Georgian utilities are building their twin plant in Vogtle using US DOE $8.3 Billion. Is Georgia’s basic education better than in SC?
………….
SC children suffer from heat waves in the homes trying to save on overcharged electricity as a result of SCANA / SCE&G scandal...

Re: “Blotter: Gotta piss 'em off

1. To SCANA (NYSE:SCG) =“Thou shalt not steal” from SCE&G kWh ratepayers because …
2. “Thou shalt know that SC Base Load Review Act do not apply to the non-base load nuclear plant in Jenkinsville SC”

Re: “Federal prosecutors provide details following motion to dismiss Dylann Roof’s charges

Ask yourselves these questions: which prosecutor's office can put this guy to death easier? which office has the most to gain, and the most to lose by ceding jurisdiction to the other? And is your local prosecutor up for re-election anytime soon?

Re: “Police ballistic vests are a greenlight for CPD to militarize

As a former resident of Charleston County who returns at least once a year for a visit; it's nice to see that the "City Paper" has not lost its sense of humor.

Unfortunately, by publishing this article in a less than objective fashion, it is not doing a credible service to its readers who might only get their printed news from this paper.

I don't know the author's professional background, however, based on his commentary, I'm pretty sure he never served a day in a law enforcement uniform. So, as a career law enforcement officer, I will offer some objective facts that the author of this piece failed to provide.

There is a war on law enforcement officers, courtesy of the Obama administration. It goes back to the incident in Cambridge, MA in 2009 where Mr. Obama passed judgment on the officers involved and the agency before the ink was dry on the arrest report. http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/07/24/officer.gates.arrest/

It can also be traced back to when Eric Holder was the Attorney General of the US, and failed to prosecute both domestic and foreign terrorists (Black Panthers for voter intimidation, and GITMO detainees who were returned only to fight some more).
http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052970203550604574361071968458430 AND http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/23/joseph-connor-eric-holder-gaive-aid-to-terrorists/ AND https://www.kirk.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=1681

Now fast forward to the present day.

As of 28 July 2016, law enforcement line of duty deaths are up approximately 8% over this same time frame last year. http://www.nleomf.org/facts/officer-fatalities-data/

There are only about 900,000 total sworn law enforcement personnel, serving a nation of residents and visitors that exceeds 300 MILLION people. And on average, a law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty every 61 hours or so. http://www.nleomf.org/facts/enforcement/

You should also know that a black Harvard professor jut released a study that shows that claims of racist deadly force incidents by law enforcement have no merit.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/11/no-racial-bias-police-shootings-study-harvard-prof/ AND the actual study is here. http://www.nber.org/papers/w22399.pdf

Your readers should also know that ballistic vests have a safety rating of approximately 5 years, which can be reduced somewhat in high heat and humidity environments (it has been rather warm this week). http://www.nij.gov/topics/technology/body-armor/pages/compliant-ballistic-armor.aspx

Your claim that no ordinary citizen can buy body armor is also false. There's a company out of Kentucky that has a wonderful selection. http://www.galls.com/body-armor-ballistic-protection

And at around $500 per vest when bulk ordering, $250,000 should outfit the department with new vests, that will last about 5 years.

So, for yours and your reader’s future endeavors, feel free to use the following open sourced items for your research into actual news reporting.

Personally, if I were your editor, I would have at least suspended you over this piece; unless of course this is your normal effort, then I would have fired you.

It’s one thing to be left leaning, it’s another to totally disregard objective fact based reporting.

God bless the USA and all her allies.

Pronghorn, so 28 people were executed last year and that makes you ashamed to be a an American. Seems like a million abortions would bother you too but I doubt it does. The hypocrisy is amazing. You sound like a giant P#$$y.
