This is not that big of a deal...I know plenty of people, and doctors for that matter who do stupid things like that! I believe that he should be given PTI for this charge and then have this expunged from his record. I am sure that this man is a good person and just made a mistake...we have all made a few of those and should be forgiven. We all know as well that the drug he was taking is an addicitve one, and I think that with help, he could clean up his act.

First of all this is a huge deal! This is a deputy... a person that is supposed to be protecting our society from this very crime. It very well may be that this person has a drug problem, however it is a crime and our judicial system will prevail.

First of all....let's set the record straight that he is a former deputy and not working for kershaw county. Yes this is a big deal, but it was a precription drug and not an illegal drug. He obtained hydrocodone without a prescription, which he probaly could have obtained with a prescription given that he goes to the right doctor and says the right things. He wasn't caught with illegal drugs...there are lots of other cops out there that have been caught for more severe charges than this. We do not know why he was trying to get this prescription drug, he may have a history of injuries or surgeries that required him to take this in the past.
I agree that he should get PTI for this crime so that if he wants to shape up and live a honorable rest of his life, this crime that he commited at such a young age will not haunt him forever. However, PTI is a one time option and if he does not stop, and does this again, then he should be punished for this. I believe that there are truely good people in this world that make mistakes in their lives...I think that if it were my friend, spouse or family member...I would want them to get a second chance and not have this mistake haunt them forever.

This cop was bad anyway. Addicted to painkillers... Big baby without them, too. If he's "man" enough to impersonate a physician to get narcotics, then he should be "man" enough to accept the penalty. He was a police officer and KNEW better. His ego just got in the way and he thought he'd get away with it... You know, Bryan, aren't you sooo much better than everyone else anyway?
Besides, he still does it, and when the PTI is over, he can be a police officer again. He didn't learn a thing. Damn shame.

Dowey has always been a dirty cop. Always has been. I should know....He tried to take my jewelry and put it in his pocket the night he arrested me. I refused to leave with the police officer until my jewelry was returned to me. Suddenly it appeared. I'm glad he's gone.....It's the best thing that has ever happened to Kershaw County....

No shock to hear about this after learning about this poor guy yesturday

3x deployed father of 5 has been denied contact with his two daughters from a previous marriage. SFC Shawn Steele and his wife were horrified to learn over a the phone that his 15yr old daughter S. Steele had been sexually assaulted for the second time in less then two years. The 1st time, she and 13yr old younger sister, also "S. Steele", where assaulted while in the care of there mothers family, and now a 2nd time by mothers husband WO 2 r 3 Shederick Jackson of the 3rd Army/air force joint forces command... Something like that,@ ft. Jackson, SC. The mother Captain Tania (pronounced Tonya) Jackson had known about the abuse for over a week and did NOT alert authorities! Saturday, March 15, Captain Jackson allowed her 13yr old to ivite two girls from school to sleep over. The following day she went to get her hair and nails done, leaving the girls in care of the perpetrator WO Shederick Jackson, who took them "out" for S steele's 13th bday! That Saturday night SFC Steele's wife received a phone call from her 15yr old stepdaughter sobbing on the phone. After 15min of trying to calm her down she told her stepmother the horrifying news. She was punished for calling and had her phone taken away. The events to follow and the action or lack there of, of the authorities has left SFC Steele floored to say the least! WO Jackson was not and has not to this date been charged or arrested even after FAILING the lie detector test. The DSS were only notified AFTER SFC Steele arrived to SC from his duty station Ft. Hood, TX. WO was on leave from Kuwait and has, through info from a source at Ft Jackson, been smuggled on to a plan back to Kuwait. The authorities were notified of these findings as well. Nothing! SFC Steele, although was the one to first contact the MPs and local law offices, has been xout of the investigations and w/e info he has managed to get is false or insufficient. Sleeping in his car most nights and eating next to nothing, his funds are virtually depleted. He has a wife with health conditions, two sons, one disabled, and a 9mth old daughter back in TX. But this is how our soldiers, our devoted fathers are treated! WOW! This man needs help. His daughters are clearly with in an unsafe environment! Mrs. Jackson had a repeated sexual relationship with her mothers husband. She, Mrs. Jackson did reply to a comment on a picture of her daughter posted on Facebook stating "...yes but she's promised to Mr. X..". This after a man stated that her daughter has/is growing into a beautiful woman. Mrs. Jackson had the girls removed from the home before after the oldest child reached out to her fathers mother during in which SFC Steele was deployed. She had been beaten for getting her hair caught under the bed. The case was dropped because Mrs. Jackson claimed her mother in law at the time was prejudice and falsely accused and coached the child. She and the abuser she clearly was/is protecting has spent a web of deceit and the authorities have undoubtedly "drank the koolaide"!

Can someone help these kids get to safety?
Heard Camden DSS was in shambles since its gm left, so what's the cops excuse..flat feet?
