Amen. Its unfortunate how this town and the local law enforcement has become so corrupt. Its an embarrassment. We need a federal investigation into this area in my oppinion. And Easley PD is no good either. Some of the worst criminals are wearing badges these days....atleast around here.

No person sworn to serve and protect others should be allowed to display such behavior. Tolerance of such degradation and racism is not an option. Any other official, employee, representative would be fired immediately for these acts. Apathy sends a sad message when law enforcement is simply given a monetary "punishment". If you cannot trust your leadership their tenure must end. How can he serve justice when he models bigotry?
