Crackdown on drive-by shooters sought

Full story: The State

As gang violence increases, Rep. Wendell Gilliard said the state needs to step up and put teeth behind the slogan "Tough on crime." The Charleston Democrat introduced a bill that would consistently sentence driver-by shooters who kill or cause serious injury to 25 years to life with the possibility of execution.

If they are caught, take them right out and shoot them. Save the tax-payers some cash.

Why bother. Since it is usually black on black shooting, it's really kind of a public service. I say keep up the good work.

I agree with both here.

The problem involves drugs and blacks. That is not intended on being racist as its fact. Look at all the shootings and killings. It isn't whites or hispanics killing blacks. It's blacks killing blacks and no doubt most involving drug dealings.

You take away the black on black crime in the low country, the state, the country and the murder rate would drop down to a small percentage.

To add most of these killings are done by people who have been arrested for major crimes before and are still on the street. If the system was done right, most of them would have been in prison and not available to continue killing.

IF our prison systems were made to be a punishment system and not one worrying about whether they are to cold or to hot, or have a soft enough cots to sleep on, whether they have tv or weight rooms. IF they acted up they would be shot, or shot with those power fubber bullets that would take em down, Maybe they would not be involved in as much crime thatwould keep em locked up in such an unpleasant situation.

Those who are getting locked up don't care as its not that hard for them to put up with.

So even if the victem is an innocent bystander, as long as they are BLACK it's o.k.? Is that what you are saying here?

And Doug, remember when prisions were called "correctional facilities"? I guess we've move on from that concept to punish and warehouse human beings.

Oh wait, that's right, I forgot, many of them are BLACK and therefore not human.

Usually it is just one drug dealer attempting to eliminate another drug dealer. Eliminate the competition. That's business! And if the fools did not think that is cool to shoot their gun sideways and concentrate on accuracy then maybe bystanders loitering on the streets in high crime areas would not be hit.

Regardless of what some think, or feel, or express drive by shootings are not helping our community. Lets not make this a black /white issue. Our town Walterboro has this problem lets try to help officials and each other and stop this.
Fight for a better Walterboro!
