"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.
If you think that's bad, how about "Gullah Gourmet Caught in Da Crick Jumbo Lump Crab Meat" filled with crabmeat imported from Thailand?
There is a problem and a solution. These two men are part of the solution.

Yes. All of it yes. Your words written gather my thoughts. Again. Thank you
Yeah, you have to be careful here you can't be "too black" depending on what kind of friends you want. Anyway I'm happy you brought this up. I'm also looking froward to you're thought provoking columns.
Good job guys! Charleston needs this!
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.
A perfect display of the well known uninformed ignorance in our society. And they're proud of it. If you really want to know what's going on in our generation, read the Holy Bible. (KJV) Learn it's meaning as written! No man, no religion necessary. You'll be amazed at what is transpiring in our generation precisely as written. And in other news....Russia will attempt to nuke USA! Israel is in great danger. Just wake up people!! Watch watchmen, watch!
Sorry bout that, hello666. When P&C updated their site this week, all their old links got borked. 🤔
White Americans love freedom until it is exercised in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. Your shirt being a prime example. Or minorities open carrying. Or minorities kneeling during a national anthem. Or flag burning. When these things happen, the "stop being so PC and offended all the time!" crowd becomes the ones taking grievous offense, often comparing the behaviors that threaten their ironically delicate sensibilities to treason.
These links are great! who woulda though, error 404??
You are doing yourself a disservice if you skip this album. Trust me. Not like when The Donald says "trust me," but actually trust me. He opened a show for us at the Windjammer last year, just him alone on that big stage, sitting with his lap steel listening to jaws hit the floor.
WHEN I GROW UP MICKEY I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU!
Incredibly impressed, as their talents have exceeded the opportunity for addiction to overcome their hearts and desires.
Best of luck with this very worthy endeavor!
Excellent idea. So many people need help to take a step in a different direction to make a positive lifestyle change. You two are great mentors and are very highly respected in the F&B community. Way to show some love!
I would like to see the shirt. Or the symbol anyways. I think the only symbol that would really make me react that way would be nazi symbols. Also... Haven't you been on the Rachel maddow show?
Beautiful you two!! Great work!!
