Re: “A month after Walter Scott's shooting, activists still calling for civilian police oversight

I, too, am old and white and share your feelings. Our nation may be "exceptional" and "Number One", but must that apply to Police-initiated violence and incarceration rates?

I'm calling for a civilian revue board, I'm old and white and tired of police misconduct towards anybody of any race or sex.

Re: “A month after Walter Scott's shooting, activists still calling for civilian police oversight

Perhaps those who are calling for the Citizen board to oversee the Police, ought to start policing their own Black communities , and get the drug dealers and users and the gang members out and remove the guns from gang and drug users, the Majority of Gun shootings in Charleston are from Black males and those who sell drugs to their own are black. And it is Black on Black shootings that are killing the majority in those housing areas.
Of course the shooting was not necessary. the Officer should be charged with Murder 1.

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

showmoor - touche

Bosox - the point is not the creator. Pick one. Zeus, Yahweh, Jehovah, Xenu. Choosing a creator is also an unalienable right. You have these rights because you EXIST. I think, therefore I am, therefore I have rights that include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

"don't confuse terorism with war. War that America fights in has a thing called the Geneva Convention which we play by."

When do you think was the last time that the US declared war on something other than poverty or drugs or terrorism? (and ask yourself why they don't declare war anymore) I agree that it's the shitty politicians that keep sending soldiers into harms way to provide security for oil companies and do nation building and police work. I do what I can to try to prevent it. But I'm guessing you vote for the exact same shitty politicians who get us into the conflicts we end up losing in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Have you thought about the fact that chickenhawk cowards like Bush and Cheney (and Hillary Clinton for that matter) couldn't decide to invade foreign countries if there weren't people willing to pull the trigger for them? You vote for them. You pull the trigger for them. You think their failure is not on you?

Lynndie England is the poster child of the Geneva Convention following American soldier.

Re: “It's time to bring back slavery

Articles with silly and even inflammatory premises to get comments and stir up attention...I get it.

Now it's just getting absurd.

But, ok. I'll see your "bring back slavery" and raise you "bring back slavery but have it run by Nazis." Ha! Beat that.

Re: “It's time to bring back slavery

Brilliant analogy, now I get it, it should never end. Now maybe you can help me understand how the millions of offspring of 20th century Caucasian immigrants, people who have no connection to the United States prior to 1900 share equal blame for the slavery that started all of this.
Oh, never mind, I forgot that you studied at the knee of Will Moredock. I'm White, therefore I'm guilty.

Re: “The Agenda: Volvo to Berkeley County; Development fights bring zoning intrigue; Hollywood home invasion details

"I'm just skeptical of this type of debt loading with respect to our ailing public services and infrastructure that are continuously ignored."

This is the way of things when you live within the confines of a shining beacon of stale conservative policy.

Tax revenues are for bribing industry, not for the betterment of our society.

As for our infrastructure? It will continue to crumble as we adhere to lowest-bidder insanity.

And so we're back to a question I asked after the column "“The Agenda: State may pony up for Volvo; S.C. DMV changes appearance policy after settlement; Boeing CEO on worker organizing: "We will work with them" 3 weeks ago

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

Nicetry, Haire, but you're trying a little too hard.
Lee, just read the definition, then choose any 25 of your 160 comments, and if you still don't understand my point you're proving it.

Re: “I support the Cooper River 4

'I don't dispute that cops can be racist. But this author is accusing cops of committing racist MURDERS against unarmed blacks across the country.'

You cant be serious. Can you?

One was literally the biggest story in the USA, was recorded and happened in this metro area.

You are either in denial, or are dumber than a handful of mule shit.

Prong,

So that lunch date at Huddle House ™ is probably a no-go then.
