  • The prison system in this country is a horrible problem already. The United States has more prisoners per citizen than ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH. I guess the next thing they will start are wars to kill off all of the "undesirables" using a religion that was copied from a native people of the middle east...

  • If Charleston city, county, and the surrounding municipalities did nothing more to entice tourism, how long would it take for us to lose our tourism industry? That is: no new hotels downtown or along the harbor, no new musems, curtailed ad and advocacy campaigns. The word is out on Charleston.

  • Tom Martin - Most minor crimes already have no bail requirements and defendants are release of their own recognizance.

  • Why do we hate Russians? I like Russia! Awesome place even to just visit. Is the cold war just an excuse to kill everyone between here and russia off? Stop playing CHESS in the middle east (with ISrael as your queen) USA before you cause a war nobody can back away from or win. Stop causing ISIS mercenaries to kill innocent people with weapons purposely…
