Re: “Charleston police finalize body camera policy

If the police have to wear body cameras to verify that deadly force is warranted, which they should be, then anybody who wears a firearm in public should be required to do the same.

Re: “THRIVE ‌ Martial Arts

This article feeds into the common westernized misconceptions of Taijiquan(Taichi)
In reality it is as effective a Martial art as any named in this article.
It depends mostly on the teacher's knowledge and what the student really wants to derive from it. It's true most people these days practice it more for it's health benefits but it is completely untrue that it's inception was for the purpose of allowing older people to continue to practice martial arts. Although Taijiquan is strictly for self defense every single aspect practiced in Taijiquan has martial purpose. And miraculously so, on the flip side, has a health/longevity purpose. However it is such a sophisticated art, it does take years of practice to really grasp all the subtleties contained in the art. On Wudang mountain in China, the legendary birth place of the art, the Masters start students as young kids which allows more time and likelyness for them to reach Mastery.
I will be moving to Charleston soon and spreading Wudang Martial Arts of which Taijiquan, Gong Fu, and Xing Yi are in the curriculum.
For video examples of these arts

I am a certified instructor under Zhou Xuan Yun, The only Daoist Priest and Wudang Martial Arts Master in the country

Fish Pimp I'll make you a modest proposal that you should re-read this article to determine who exactly is being satirized.

Re: “Home Team BBQ offers a peek at its Williman Street digs

Light Industrial zoning and pretty basic 50/25 height district requirements. While it is the popular thing to say right now, I don't think you'll actually be able to blame the BAR process for delays, Kinsey.

Re: “The Agenda: 4.2M SC license plates to be replaced; Sanford plan would cut public transit; Court to hear church case

Sanford has been working to destroy the Regional Transportation Authorities since he was governor.
No one paid attention as he transferred most DSS and Medicaid transportation to private crony capitalist contractors, leaving the RTAs to wither away.

Re: “Walter Scott's death is proof the system doesn't work

Eric Garner wasn't resisting arrest; and even if he was death shouldn't be the alternative.

@Jo You need to google how color plays a role in punishment by the police/legal system even news articles and broadcast have to make a point of waving the criminal in question nationality so people can unconsciously decide how they feel about said actions.

I wished there was a way to make names unidentifiable and keep their nationality a secret until said rulings are concluded by the judge or spectators. This way every reaction would truly be colorblind.

Re: “Charleston police finalize body camera policy

I also think we should send a warm thanks to VIEVU for providing the City Paper with these fine stock photos. It's almost eerie how they captivate the imagination. When I saw them, I immediately was taken to the scene of a traffic stop or other minor incident. I even experienced momentary fear of an impending assault/execution from a police officer. Well done, photography man.

Re: “Charleston police finalize body camera policy

"Low light capability". Well that's inconvenient.

If the cops are already this angry and out of hand now, imagine how they're going to react when they're told they have to wait 'til after dark to shoot black people.

Re: “Charleston police finalize body camera policy

I'm glad the officers will be trained on how to use them. If the training is as top-notch as their gun, tazer and community relations training, I foresee no problems in the future.

Re: “#SouthofBroadLivesMatter

Yes, once again there is no middle ground possible in America. The choice at St. Jasper is one extreme or the other.

But, if I was in #BlackLivesMatter, I would be pretty pissed that the editor of a local newspaper thought it okay to mock and trivialize the community protesting the murder of unarmed black men. This is the type of open disrespect that #blacklivesmatter should be protesting. This type of satire is as funny as blackface.

Funny how, every time a black man comes up with an idea, a white man comes in to appropriate it and make all the money. From Elvis to Eminem to now Chris Haire and the City Paper. It has to stop. Has the City Paper made a cash donation to #blacklivesmatter, yet?

A lack of public transportation is one of the main criticisms of Charleston. Leave it to Congressman Sanford to finally introduce a bill and of course have it disproportionally hurt the working poor.

I think they should build about 50 more of these downtown, rather than continuing to overbuild the sea islands.

Excellent article. People of privilege rarely realize the extent of their privilege. And those without privilege live with chronic deprivation and fear.

"Officers ranked sergeant and below to start wearing VIEVU LE3 cameras in May"

So lieutenants will still be able to murder innocent people, then?

Re: “#SouthofBroadLivesMatter

I think it's deplorable that they evicted the remaining pillar of affordable housing south of Calhoun.

Having said that, as angry as I am at the Beach Company I think I hate the SOBers more.

If Beach Co. really wanted to fuck with them, he would turn the whole plot into a 20-story One80 Place. GO GET EM.

Re: “S.C. lawmaker introducing bill to protect LGBT customers

Perhaps you're right, Driver Eight, maybe I should take a break.

But even if I can't convince folks that troll this site it doesn't mean that a logical argument won't convince others that aren't so hard over on it, or spur a reasonable conversation. I wasn't always in favor of gay marriage because I'd never really given it much thought. I read well-conceived arguments in support of it and I was sold. The guy that filed the discrimination claim against Azucar bakery for refusing to make a "God Hates Fags" cake represents a portion of the population that doesn't get the difference, but perhaps could be brought around. After all, it seemed not only like a "turnabout is fair play" idea on paper, but enough to take it to court and lose.

Re: “S.C. lawmaker introducing bill to protect LGBT customers

That's a good explanation. In summary:

If you normally sell the product or service, you have to sell it to anyone that wants to buy it.
Ex - If you are a barber that does mohawks, you have to give a mohawk to any customer that asks, no denial.

You do not have to sell non-products or non-services to anyone, as long as you are consistent in not offering that product or service.
Ex - You do mohawks, but never flattops. I want a flattop, and you can deny me since it's not a service you offer to anyone.

In the hypothetical gay wedding catering scenario, if they were asked to make a pizza in the shape of a big cock so the grooms could eat it, they wouldn't have to. Jewish bakers wouldn't have to make a swastika care. Muslim florists wouldn't have to make an arrangement in the likeness of Mohammed. And so on.
