No big deal.
I heard he boasted about the Susan Smith trial. However, it was a "no brainer". She confessed. Even I could've prosecuted that one.
While we're on the subject...people felt bad cause she lied. Ummmmmmm...so what? She killed her children....I'd lie too...we all would.
And she blamed a black man.....ummmmmmm....so what? If she had've said "a tall man", would the tall men of America revolt?
I think people like to complain about anything.
Bye Tommy.

What do you expect, he comes from a line of corrupt cops. He claims that defense teams use any means to get to the end for the defense when in fact it is ignorant prosecutors like that piece of crap that use any means necessary to gain politically. He is a disgusting person and should have been made not to father hillbilly children

Tommy Pope is one of the most pathetically pitiful and repulsively disgusting people to ever have the displeasure of breathing the same oxygen as the rest of us.

I am comforted by the fact that this disgusting, pitiful little prick will live the rest of his life with the evil reputation that he has. Tommy Pope will always be known as an evil, disgusting, pitiful joke of a human being. He does not deserve to be classified as a human being nor as a man. He does not deserve to breathe the same oxygen as the people superior to him do.

I'd like him to help in a case involving a wrongful, murder conviction. He has balls, as far as i'm concerned! No worse than many, lawyers, and smarter than Most!! It would lead to a major lawsuit! In case anyone out there knows of someone better than him or Robert Rose, leave me a name... Polotics are involved, so I need a lawyer who has the guts and skills to take down a crooked judge, DA, and his so called Defence attorneys! No confession, but the sob's opened saying that my Brother was guilty. Meanwhile, the real murderer, goes free, to kill again, and again... Even the DA didn't want to charge my Bro. with murder, but with manslaughter, due to it all being circumstancial evidence! His Defence Attorneys wanted the death penalty!!! All TRUE!! I have the transcripts. Open to comments or help, thanks.

What few people know about Pope is that his family actually came here from another galaxy in the early 1800s as pets of the Zeta Reticuli. Oral documentation suggests that the ancestors escaped and mated with native population, allowing them to blend in with Earthlings over the years. If I had to guess, I'd say that they were orriginally from Terrax 14, as it's the only planet close enough to sustain human life and is basically the halfway point to Earth from the Zeta Reticuli home world. I can't really say if this had some genetic bearing on his being a 'dirtbag', as some of you have expressed.

I love it, your criticisms of Tommy are that..."I heard he boasted after susan smith" or "i saw on dateline". Real intellectual deductions there relying on media and hearsay to draw conclusions. The rest of the criticisms are simply the bias of criminals and their families. Sorry, the average citizens of york county appreciate the job Tommy did in protecting our citizens and punishing the guilty.

Thanks to sour grapes for coming to Tommy's defense. As for the rest of you, I find it a bit upsetting that you would insult he and his family. As a relative I would appreciate a little more respect for a family who has dedicated much of their lives to the service of York County, most notably Tommy, Elbert, and Lib.

Have you ever met his children? I take personal offense to a comment such as that. Unless you know his children leave them out of any coments or judgement you may have. Tommy as a person and attorney can defend himself, attacking his kids is just WRONG.

Thank you for your words of wisdom. for I also happen to be a part of the Pope family and firmly stand behind the his morals, family values and legal stance on representing South Carolina.

I don't appreciate the job Tommy did. Maybe "average citizens of york county" is to broad of a description.
