Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Dale, of course a higher percentage of blacks than whites are committing crime in North Charleston, that is because a higher percentage of blacks is poor. So likewise for example a higher percentage of American Indians are committing crime in America, because many are poor. Of course few of those live in North Charleston. So they complain against the police mainly in states like Arizona, New Mexico, South Dakota. Races won't be equal in income until they are equal in education. So we should spend more money on educating blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, Eskimos, Hawaiians, than we spend on educating whites and Asians, until they catch up with us.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Look at the high percentage of the group who is doing the killings, robberies, and other crimes within the city. And then see the percentage of complaints against the police. Any correlation?

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

To the previous commenter: There is plenty of a crackdown on crime in North Charleston. But when a police officer misbehaves, he or she ought to be punished. After all, when some people, like many in the minority communities, feel they can't trust the police to do a good job, then they are less likely to report crimes to the police and fewer crimes get solved. And you want to use the National Guard? Is that even legal to use National Guard soldiers for law enforcement? What about the posse comitatus laws?

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

This is political reteric. What is needed is a crackdown of the ever increading crime in North Charleston, tougher sentenses, and a constant presence on the streets of Law Enforcement. This can only be acvomplishrd by the State's National Guard to patrol the streets 24/7, until the danger to private citizens is reduced.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

Interesting article. But why the LGBQT slant? The underlying issue has little to do with that...or the headline should be rewritten.

The first two photos look like glamour shots and poor Bob just gets to stand there.

Well they could go to a tech school, no one says they have to take huge student loan debts to get an education.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

Predictable contributors saying "get a job you lazy kid" without reading the article where they talk about them having jobs. But it was so easy back in the day. Just ten years ago, rent was 40% less than it is now, while income has only gone up 13% to compensate. Since I graduate college, tuition has gone up by about 300%! What is wrong with these freeloading kids these days? Harumph indeed. Why don't they have the wherewithal to personally drive market forces themselves?

I worked 2 sometimes 3 evening and weekend jobs and was always able to eat and pay my bills.
GI bill also helped.
No sympathy for those too lazy to do that.

When I ran out of money while at college, I quit and went to work. Pretty simple, really.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

When you are "coming out" to your family and friends, don't be surprised if they say "they knew" already. And if you don't have the money or resources to attend a very expensive, beautiful, college, how about TEC? No poly sci degrees there. Only ones that will get you a job and require a lot of effort on your part to get the degree. Please don't put the burden of trying to adjust to a new life and receive some worthless degree on others. Time to put on your big boy and big girl pants and get on with whatever life you have decided to live. And can someone tell me the last letter in that ever-increasing abbreviation of "other" life styles? It is starting to look like the end of the "Old Macdonald" farm song chorus.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

I hope all my children, by blood, by Girl Scouts, by classroom, by friendship all know I love them for who they are. I hope they all know my door is always open to them. I hope they know that I will listen and not judge, and not tell them what to do. I hope they each and all know how precious they are to me.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

i am no longer amazed at how a parent could turn their back on their child because they are LGBTQI. I used to be but I have seen it occur on far to many occasions. It saddens me to know that even our youth have become disposable items that will be discarded when some parents become more concerned with their standing in the community than their child.
It is estimated that close to 50% of all homeless youth are LGBTQI with a disproportionate number of them being transgender. Many have been abandoned by faith, family, and friends simply because of who they are. On the streets they fall prey to pimps and pushers, often within 48 hours of being rejected. Easy targets for the predators they are viewed as a commodity to be used, abused and then discarded in favor of fresh victims who appear on a far to frequent basis.
I beg you. If you have a child don't try to make them into someone they are not. Love them for who they are.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

"These people want nothing more than to improve the lives of others" They are? How? Maybe Alyssa should take in a family and pay for there schooling and housing and tuition. She wants me too.

Lee Anne- BS they do receive public assistance: Schooling, medicaid, children receive food stamps, child tax credits, US government willing lets them use stolen SS ID #'s ect.....

Illegal aliens are not eligible for public assistance.
In 2010 illegal workers paid 13 billion into the social security system with no hope of ever collecting it.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

SORRY but illegal is illegal.WE,Americans, have the right to serve and protect what our elected reps should have been doing for us all along the way,but as the SORRY *SSES found ways to keep screwing us Americans,and we have had enough.
We expect for President Trump to do his job,AND- we intend to help him to bring America back to where it should have always been,and that is -ONLY with Americans being first in everything we have to offer,here.
Our USA Veterans have a priority and they are to be taken care of,100%.
What we Americans need must be of priority and this is where we are headed,and that President Trump understands what must be done, he has the guts to do the job that we elected him to do.WE TAXPAYERS have paid out our own *sses,having been forced to cover the cost of illegals and other foreigners,but this has to end.We are going to take care of US AMERICANS,FIRST.
WE,ARE AMERICAN DREAMERS,WHO HAVE BEEN AWAITING THE ENTRY OF ONE AS OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP!NOW-IT IS OUR TIME,and we expect -nothing less!
IF you came into America -illegally,this is not our fault,but you kept on sucking off of us,through our sorry *SS law breaking reps and they have theirs coming to them,too.They aided in criminal acts,and they must also pay for those crimes.
When we get to the point of being able to afford helping other countries and the people living,there, we will,but WE come first.
Stop playing this feel sorry for me thing because it does not work with those of us who demand the law be put into force,and followed.ANY attempting to bend the law,must be punished.
NO MONEY will be allowed given from our governments,to cover anything for illegals-this is what we demand.
We taxpayers have been screwed by illegals,FAR TO LONG,and the free rides are done with,so stop trying to pile in on us,in America.
We are going to be taking care of America,properly,by enforcing what always should have been,enforced,-and as for workers needed to help with crops,ect-ALL will come through here,properly,and any who do not,ALL aiding them will be punished to the MAX.
Workers come from many other countries,properly,and this is what we will accept.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

Why is this even an issue? They should be deported, with their parents. The parents are the real criminals here - they put their kids in this position. If I rob a bank, the gov't isn't going to worry about separating my family - I'm going to jail. Let's apply that standard here, too. If they want to be here, let them apply and stand in line like everyone else. It's nice to be nice, but let's use some common sense here.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

Instead of blaming Donald Trump, these illegals should be kicking their parents in the ass for putting them in this position. The solution is for them to return to their home country and enter the US legally. I'm all for them being here IF they are not gangbangers, on welfare and otherwise a drain on our economic systems.
