Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

We need to make it perfectly clear that he don't regret what he did and we don't regret his punishment. If someone stands before the court and states he has no regrets for what he did to those people who showed him nothing but kindness and acceptance then he should not be granted any appeals and he should be put to death immediately.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

And this is precisely what has happened and continues to happen on the political front where fake news has brainwashed legions of people into thinking the Clinton's were corrupt, the Clinton Foundation was corrupt and trump is the second-coming of christ-almighty. Apparently the lack of common sense and logical thinking are used by the GOP to take advantage of those that don't want to try different channels to see that there ARE discrepancies and how logic (does it make sense) and independent reasoning plays a part in separating the discrepancies from the consistencies so they can figure out which channels are fake-based and which are fact-based.

The only reason he hasn't tapped USSR leadership for White House jobs, is because you must be a citizen of the US to be appointed:

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

It seems to me the central question is what about Scott caused Slager's "fear" from a man who was obviously trying to get away from him. Scott didn't attack Slager; he ran away. Whatever caused the altercation and whatever happened during it, was due to Scott's not wanting to deal with Slager. When the shots were fired, he was 18 feet away. I am not one to yell "racist" at every opportunity, but whether or not Slager was even aware of it, if you are honest you have to ask how much Scott' being Black contributed to Slager's "fear" for his life. t is almost impossible to deny the racial elements in the case.

Wow, that will be amazing to see the tens of women marching in protest. Hope it doesn't affect mall parking.

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

Liberte, I wonder if more people would believe the moon landings were real if it had been streamed live on Facebook.

Why skip around what you are trying to say. just say it; "If Scott had been the cop he would be found guilty of murder". See? Not that hard to sound racist, even when you reverse the situation. Personally, I think the outcome would be the same.

I wonder what the verdict would have been if the length of the video and actions depicted in the video were the same, but Slager and Scott had their roles reversed.

"With so many eyes on the street, justice today might rely only on a video "

and injustice may also be caused by a video. People are so used to being spoon fed their information now that few think on their own. They see a video or photo that appears to show one thing and refuse to accept that something else is occurring, already having formed their opinion based on what they think they see, or what others have told them they believe.

Re: “Can Burke High School unite Charleston?

I believe in Charleston that we can set the stage for what being united, by keeping Burke alive and well. Being united first has to start at the local government level. It's always been to my understanding that the county,city,and state governments support the same people. Then why not each do their part to save an institution that can unite and serve everyone well.

Re: “Can Burke High School unite Charleston?

I dream to create a hospitality high school focused on the hospitality Industry in Charleston. I think Burke would be a great location to start this off. It offers so much that we could all benefit.

Re: “Can Burke High School unite Charleston?

I remember when Stoney Field opened. It was built on "reclaimed land" - the City of Charleston's garbage dump. Bishop England football players dubbed it Golgotha. It's a sin and a shame the City has chosen to let it fall into disrepair.

I also remember when Burke High School was a force for good in our community. I remember being thrilled by their band's performances in parades. I remember watching their debate teams in tournaments perform with poise and skill. I remember seeing Burke students around town - quietly proud and always joyful.

We, as Charlestonians, need to do everything we can to help Burke High School ascend to her former glory. She MUST become the shining jewel she was in Charleston's crown again. She deserves our help. Her students, past present and future, deserve our very best efforts.

Re: “SCE&G wants to sell you a service plan, too

I had surge protection thru SCE&G and they didn't pay out. They send you a denial letter then you never get put on permanent hold. It's a scam.
