That is laughable. Wake up lady! Either you have no idea what is going on in your own supposed moment or you are not very smart. Nicest way I can say it.
Another reason venues don't want hip hop culture is because they don't make any money off the crowd. Ask anybody that owns a bar or music venue. Go ahead and ask
Yes, political comments shouldn't be addressed regarding this culinary experience.
It's CRYSTAL clear this event was singled out by CPD due to its connection to Black Lives Matter. There is an erroneous perception in the community that BLM is anti-police, and its obvious the powers that be at CPD subscribe to that flawed way of thinking. This was a way for Captain Searson and the department to flex their muscles and head BLM off at the pass. Period.
Additionally, to use circumstantial evidence from a completely different event, featuring a completely unrelated group of artists, presented by a completely different group of promoters to justify "safety concerns" for this event is both discriminatory and egregious.
CPD would do well to stop crimininalizing black folks and the Music Farm would do well to stop simultaneously poaching and marginalizing hip hop culture.
All Lives Matter!
Randall, I'll let the editor know.
I can't believe the CCP "editors" let you put in that asinine comment about trump supporters. Really distasteful
I believe the Gospel tells us "Let he who has not made a typo cast the first misplaced modifier." I stand by that.
Safe spaces are very important to people, Kinsey Giddick! You have violated the sacred safe space of the food section with your triggering words! Oh, the blog post about this will. be. seething!
But, seriously: "weather the truffle could improve..." Don't set yourself up like that.
If they aren't worried about "safety concerns" why should the CPD? Sounds to me instead of saying CPD helped to make them safe, they are saying the police made up reasons to keep them from having their concert. By all means... Let them have the concert and when the shooting begins, lets all meet for coffee and cake and they can take care of themselves.
The video clearly showed that the cop tried to kill Scott. I don't care what happened before that. I think 30 years in prison for the cop is fair for both.
The Trump reference in your dinner review was inappropriate.
I won't continue to berate you as I can see I am not the only one who feels this way.
Time to take a refresher course in journalism.
Proof read! You have a hideous error in the article. Weather vs. whether! Annoying.
Did they make YOU sit in one of those awful bar booths with your party of 6?
Thank you, thank you to the above person who wrote in:) cc4s.... I was going to write that also...we don't need the reporter's political sarcasm in a food review. I mean seriously??? In all the years growing up and living in NYC and reading the NYT's food reviews and going thru all their food critiques thru the years, I cannot recall, ever, ever, having anyone of them throwing in some snarky political comment in their review. Leave it to hv a writer at the City Paper to throw one in. But not surprised as a week ago there was an actual article written about Thomas Ravenel endorsing Trump and how shocked the City Paper was, or the reporter was. It may hv been this one. But who remembers and who cares! I think I am living in the Twilight Zone....
Thanks for the politics in your review. Focus on the food more please. It just shows a lack of good culinary critique. People should learn something from the review. All I learned is your political view.
PS truffles are expensive we get it. Bla bla bla
Proceeds from "pale ale" should go to people with pigment deficiencies, Long Island charities get proceeds from the sale of Long Island Ice Tea, no blonde jokes unless you are actually a natural blonde, No Octoberfest unless you are actually a native of the bavarian countries, geez get real, get over yourselves and move on.
This paper just absolutely loves every. single. restaurant. in. charleston.
"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.
