Re: “Former North Charleston officer Michael Slager sentenced to 20 years in Walter Scott shooting death

I wonder if he can get out of prison early, like some prisoners can, based on good behavior in prison. He sure deserves to spend the 20 years in prison for what he did, shooting at a man running away and killing him.

Re: “The political dynamics of City Council have shifted — and not in Teck's favor

Maybe Shealy won because he was white and he outspent Williams, I got several mailings from Shealy urging me to vote for him, and no mailings from Williams. Maybe Shealy is rich. I could not get to the polling place in time, so I did not vote for Williams. But my vote would not have mattered, he lost by a huge margin. West Ashley is now a mainly white area.

Re: “How a recent State Supreme Court decision highlights the educational challenges ahead

Teachers in schools with a lot of poor kids ought to be better paid than teachers in schools with a lot of middle class kids, so they can attract and keep the best teachers. Middle class kids will usually do fine and graduate high school even with lower quality teachers. Also schools with a lot of poor kids need a lot more counselors to help the kids, due to the problems a lot of poor kids have, like malnutrition, crowded substandard housing, poorly educated parents, absent parents, PTSD due to living in a more violent neighborhood, etc.

Re: “Lindsey Graham today: Stop labeling Trump a kook. Graham in 2016: "I think he's a kook."

Graham is at least a little more reasonable than Trump.

Re: “How Catherine Templeton uses social media to stir up the red meat base

I agree, Annabelle, and us independents should vote in massive numbers against people like Templeton too.
