Are all Amish Peeps Democrats?
Actually the vests they want to order are a great idea. They work better against the high powered rifles that lunatics prefer. I want the all the p-dogs to get this type of vest as well. I think they are also entitled to safety. And the 50,000 in riot gear is nothing. Better to buy this stuff for them, then to pay for any of the stupid asinine studies to see where the crime is located, as we have in the recent past.
I don't understand why they're trying so hard to defend this murderer.
I thought policeman automatically wore bullet proof vests???🤔🤔🤔
Congrats. Much better than being a food critique who is too nice to say a place sucks. I hope you do not start editing my bad language and mean spirited restaurant comments (That are always true). I have no niceness left in me for places that suck or even semi suck and I won't pretend.
Seems like the media has declared an all out war on the police as of late. Why not get them these to keep them safe? People are throwing bricks at "peaceful" protests. I have no issue at all with this as a city of Charleston resident. I have nothing but respect for these officers and what they deal with day to day. If you have a problem; who are you going to call? Sorry to tell you but ghost busters are fictional.
You are a real inspiration to me, Noa, and everyone who is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet and get to know you. What you have written is beautiful and moving and will be shared with many people and for many years after you are not on this earth, and we will miss you very much. I feel so thankful to have met and gotten to know you. Love, hugs, and wishes for eternal peace,
and the editorial value of this rag continues to devolve.
Just passing through. Great billboard!
Mat, the next time you are in trouble why bother the police, seems that you have a strong disregard for their safety.
One small correction - the van driver that killed Dr. Hollen on the JI connector did not "lose control of his van" - he was talking on his cellphone and distracted, and drifted off the driving surface into the emergency lane.
Ballistic vests? As in vests designed to stop a bullet if you get shot? Of course. Why should cops wear a vest that could save their lives?
"sorry, until there's a trial, you're still a citizen and you have rights"
Yes, and so does the officer. If you are a fleeing suspect and you are shooting at the officer (or about to) the officer, just like any other citizen, has a right to defend themselves. The officer (unlike citizens) also has a right to fire in defense of the society at large as well.
Now, this is not meant to excuse some of the actions seen by law enforcement. however, despite the dozen or so incidents seen on YouTube or media recently, these incidents are still, by far, in the minority. The vast majority of officer / citizen interactions are done calmly, professionally, and occasionally in, a friendly manner.
I am disappointed to hear that your city is even considering a ban on any weapon when it is a violation of the 2nd amendment right. When did a city have the right to change the constitution to be a PC City? I spend about 5 weeks a year in your city each year and if the passes you have lost all the money I send there. I am ashamed of the city of Charleston and the State of South Carolina. Your pay cut is in your hands enjoy and I will be passing this information on to all of my friends and everyone I meet while traveling around as to how un-American your city has become.

I'm not sure if my previous comment went through, so I'll sum up in another one:
Militarize: to put weapons and military forces in (an area) or to give a military quality or character to (something) - Merriam-Webster, 27 July, 2016.
How does giving police ballistic vests (a.k.a. bullet proof vests), militarize the CPD? Simple, it doesn't. How does protecting our officers, our 'blue lives', militarize them? Joe Public can buy the vests, why can't CPD? If Joe Public can militarize, then the PD's around the country need to as well (North Hollywood Shootout anyone?). Sounds like the media isn't reporting the whole story again (surprise!!!). You say the 'citizen' has rights, and you are correct. However, certain citizens, let's call them convicted felons, don't have certain rights; the right to bear arms, to conceal said firearm in their pocket while resisting arrest and reach for said firearm during the arrest. That's one example. Maybe what you should be writing about is how certain cultures are raised to hate police, how that life is glorified in music videos and movies and songs. What you should be writing is "If stopped by a police officer, show respect, do what you are instructed to do, no sudden movements & explain what and where you are reaching for..."etc. Oh, and don't forget the biggest thing you should write "Don't kill anyone, be they a blue life, a black life, a yellow/brown/red/white...life."
Now, had the CPD ordered four tanks for crowd control, then you could argue militarization. But to anyone with their head on their shoulders, vests are a good thing for our officers.
The dots must be joined up between the officer's account, witnesses and evidence. If this happened to your relative or close friend you would want to make sense of this death. It appears the cop is hiding and controlling evidence - just doesn't seem ethical or objective which is a concern for the public
Really? How absolutely shocking!! I am horrified and taken aback by this info. I would never suspect SC as being waaaayyyy behind the times or having a lack of diversity in Judicial appointments. Number 47 out of 50 you say? As Prong would say, Thank God for Mississippi. They always prevent us from finishing last. Take it further Dustin. How diverse is the Judicial Merit Selection Commission?
I want to know is Mr. Quirk-Garvin Amish? Cause he def needs the hat to complete the look he's going for.
