Re: “The Agenda: NAACP calls for Slager retrial transparency; Gowdy Benghazi committee shuts down

FINALLY, after 7 years of it, no more Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Mission accomplished but still nothing to "nail" HRC to the wall in the end. Why? Because it was only a 7-year smear campaign, that cost taxpayers millions of dollars and 7 years of wasted legislative time. Oh, wait a minute, it was not wasted because HRC lost, right? So in the end, political posturing cost taxpayers millions in order to participate in campaign election tampering.

Re: “Glock pistol and burned American flag among evidence SLED found in Roof's car

It does make me wonder why, since a month went by after he purchased the pistol and then went on his shooting spree, did police not go to his home to get the pistol back seeing as how he apparently lied on the form when he made the purchase and was now illegally in possession of a firearm.

Re: “Slager defense to paint Walter Scott as drug-crazed psycho

"Slager used his Taser to directly stun Scott twice one in the side, once in the back.

In all, Slager pulled the Tasers trigger six times during a 67-second span that morning, data from the device indicated."

This is nonsense.

When a taser is fired two darts are launched from the cartridge, each trailing a wire. It doesn't matter how often you pull the trigger after that -- until another cartridge is loaded the weapon won't fire.

The video shows only two wires and one cartridge, one wire to a dart in Slager's chest are and one to near Slager's left shin. The cartridge goes bouncing behind Slager as Scott breaks free. There are no darts in Scott.

... oh, and Michael Slager OUGHT TO be found NOT guilty in the murder of Walter Scott. Slager ought to be found guilty of some level of manslaughter (per SCOTUS in Garner), but murder is an absurd overcharge.

Re: “The smoky meats are promising, but some of Swig & Swine's dishes could use improvement

I truly enjoyed my meal in the Charleston, SC restaurant. Their collard greens are, without a doubt, the best I've EVER had in my life. I would go back in a heartbeat. My only suggestion is that they put cornbread on the menu!

Re: “How Art Thou Jazz Lounge presents national acts once a month

Mr. Dobie did a fine job capturing the intent and the mission of How Art Thou Jazz Lounge. People near the larger cities around the country are used to having a convenient jazz club that hosts world-class musicians. An opportunity to hear these great musicians at a small and intimate environment is something that was sorely lacking in Charleston. I really hope that the Jazz community will come out in force and support the efforts of this new Jazz Club.

Taking on a task like this is perilous regardless of your music policy. But dealing with jazz has and even higher failure rate than virtually any other kind of venue.

David Burger is taking a lot of risk because he really wants to have the premier Jazz Club in South Carolina. Based on what we've seen so far I think he has a shot.

Re: “Have you visited Extreme Akim's Kingdom Bar & Grill yet?

Wish I would have been impressed, but I wasn't.

Just looked like the old Charleston Beer Works with a paint job, colored lights and overpriced drinks

Re: “With so many eyes on the street, justice today might rely only on a video

So a white man who gets shot running from police is not racist, but a black man who gets shot running is?

Re: “Is Dylann Roof wearing his prison jumpsuit on purpose?

He must object to being tried in prison garb and then still be forced to wear the prison garb in order to claim his rights have been violated.

Re: “No biscuits? Carrie Morey explains why forgetting them was a big misstep on Top Chef: Charleston Ep. 2

Dinner was also served to Chef Dennis. In fact as you watched the episode, many of the chefs deferred to his judgment on flavor and authenticity.

Re: “Have you visited Extreme Akim's Kingdom Bar & Grill yet?

What about the spacious atmosphere, food menu, attentive service, and what type of music and special events? I'd like to see better reviews than two sentences of what this venue hopes to accomplish.

Re: “Being non-racist is not good enough

We now live in Bizarro world. Trump's going to be president. Right is wrong and wrong is right. Disrepect and vengeance are applauded and dignity and honor are hopelessly bullied into submission. Racism has been validated and inclusion spat upon. This is not "Great" by a stretch of anyone's imagination.

Re: “Video confession of Dylann Roof reveals disturbing views on race

executing him i think just feeds the rest,as there are many hate filled whites spread all over especially here in the south,i listen to my boss and his friends call president obama the N word constantly,they also laugh and joke of genocide,i dont think they would ever do any thing like roof but holding the same ideology as roof inside closed circles while being so for every one in public cause they know bad for business if they let peeps know what they really think,the only way to fix this is by fighting the ideology,and killing this pos will just make the more violent and barbaric ones more hatefull,i mean how is death even considered a punishment? more of a easy way out,but i guess when your dealing with peeps who have imaginary sky friends still the most primitive form of punishment even though has never made any one safer,is what they always want.Alao the reason why the ideology never goes away,kill one pos then next day every one go back to going along with the same hate breeding filth outa the peeps around us either cause we have know choice because of work or because deep down inside maybe no one reall gives a fuck about peoples rights or any thing else like they make out to,i mean my grandmother was the sweetest little southern lady but every fucking time she ever said any thing about a black person she called them a n word the difference in me and most is that i will admit its wrong that my sweet little grandmother was very wrong and i openly tell my family that,they seeem to think your suppose to go along with this cause its family,every human plant and animal on this planet is my family,my little grandmother use to grab hold of us and make us tell her we believed on jesus too,well i aint just going along with imaginary sky friends just cause my family says so either,but most do and will continue,like to chat more but im looking for a job so i can move away from here.

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

We can be as indignant as we want but these people are elected by the majority of South Carolinians. It's what we have and will have for the foreseeable future, like it or not.

Re: “Video confession of Dylann Roof reveals disturbing views on race

We are not wasting money. Everyone in this country is supposed to get a fair trial. He will get tried, convicted and probably executed as he deserves. But just to take him out and shoot him make us just as bad as he is. Let justice run its course.

Re: “Video confession of Dylann Roof reveals disturbing views on race

I agree with Cia...why are we wasting money, time & energy on this POS?!?! He planned it, carried it out and was planning on killing himself afterward...he should be dealt the same punishment that he perpetrated on those innocent victims!
