Get away from our computers and stop blogging from someone who just posted on a blog? How ridiculous! The issue is not necessarily their age. Anyone behaving like this would be hit just as hard. The only thing age has to do with it is given their youth overcoming the desire to take these two rude, spoiled brats outside to pick a switch as my grandmother used to say…. I have a son their age and if I ever found out he had behaved like this in public, he would never hear the end of it. There really is no reason for anyone of any age to behave in this manner then be vain enough to claim the cause was their "personal beauty" deserves the reaction they get. (Mar 21, 2008 | post #130)

Oh get over yourself!!!! Every teacher I know these days has decided no one has a clue but them, no one else has a clue as to how to raise a child and absolutely no one should have an opinion on anything to do with the education of their own children because the rest of us are idiots. No one is supposed to move without official permission. Schools have turned into mini-prisons with the kids on lock down. You and the rest of the education community need to get a grip-you are not gods, you are not all-knowing and you know what, a little fun never hurt anything. One of the happiest moments in my family's life was when my son graduated Lugoff-Elgin last year because we were all so sick of the educated idiots and ridiculous rules we had dealt with all these years. Had the man shown up in a g-string, sure that would be inapropriate, but he was fully clothed , looked appropriate for the holiday, and I am sure would have been a wonderful light-hearted treat for the kids for the day. But oh no, he wasn't following some rule-get a grip!!!! (Mar 18, 2008 | post #249)

this is exactly why i have never been a fan of in-home care. I realize it has it's plusses, but I always felt safer with my child in several people's care, not one with no one watching them. (Mar 14, 2008 | post #20)

AMEN! The teller, though possibly paranoid, was only doing what she thought best. And the police reacted as they had to given the situation. The only gripe I see is Paddy (sp?)Patterson’s rude attitude. She is reacting as though she “has egg on her face” when she doesn’t. Common manners dictate an apology for someone having been embarrassed unnecessarily -nothing more. This is common courtesy. I am appalled that her superiors have not reprimanded her for turning such a simple thing into a peeing (excuse my language here) contest that has now made the police department look bad. SHE should be called down for making the department look bad with her unacceptable, insensitive, unnecessary comments. Her officers responded well and did their job with what appears to be great skill. What a shame those officers have to be brought down by their chief misbehaving. (Feb 21, 2008 | post #108)
You know, I didn't know that. Ironic isn't it? All states had to change their laws in the 80;s to comply with a fedral standard, but yet the Army didn't have to? Curiouser and curioser (Feb 7, 2008 | post #26)
I would like to see the whole thing changed-not just for military. I was one the group who had the age raised on them in 80’s. I was also married in 1984, graduated college in 1989. BUT, although I could have a mortgage payment, support myself, go to school and be married, I was not “responsible enough” to legally have a drink?????? Yes, there is research everywhere on any imaginable topic, but I think these days sometimes we rely too much on research-some of which has been statistically skewed to suit the investigator’s hypothesis-and not enough on common sense and life experience. How many of you folks had grandparents who got married at 16? Currently, there are advertisements on the radio for Chapin Furniture where “Gladys” brags about being married at 14.. The point is, no matter what research says, for centuries humans have been marrying, drinking and being responsible at much younger ages than we currently believe is possible. I believe you get what you expect in a lot of ways and today we do not expect young people to meet a standard of maturity and so they don’t. Helicopter parents and schools treating high school students like kindergardners have done our youth no favors. I support the change in the law and hope to see a change in this hovering, disrespectful attitude we have adopted for our youth today. They deserve better. (Feb 7, 2008 | post #23)
Shoot, I have had black co-workers ask me to bring them food back from Maurice's-which I find hilarious! (Oct 29, 2007 | post #192)
it just never ceases to amaze me how long these types can get away with it. Did yu notice the comment about hundreds of times? And no one even noticed that these boys were acting strangley or spending an inordinate amount of time with this guy or anything?? Amazing! And yet it seems to happen that way so often. (Oct 11, 2007 | post #11)
As one of the poor schmucks working for the State and parking in the garage, I must call myself a fence sitter on this issue. I agree with earlier comments that enforcing what is already in place would/might work just fine. BUT the whole complex does need better security. We have had thefts from offices from people getting into the buildings. I have personally dealt with mentally unbalanced folks and drug addicts and homeless who have come in off the streets. Just 2 days ago, there was a fellow roaming the building and trying to steal from offices-and of course, the BPS folks couldn't get over here quickly enough to catch him (no slur on BPS here, just simple logistics). The Capitol complex does need some more security, and perhaps that garage is a place to start. It is a potential crime scene and does provide non-street level entry to these buildings. Obviously, a lot of folks posting here don't think much of state employees, I am not sure why, but what needs to be discussed is what money has been put into the security of the complex in the recent past-in other words, how long has it been since upgrades were put in place? Are we playing catch up? No matter what one thinks of state employees, I can't imagine anyone would want us to work in an unsafe environment! (Oct 10, 2007 | post #26)
AMEN! all I coud think seeing this was dear god, can they not get this joker under lock and key???? I am sorry for you folks from Eastover having to live with this criminial making most of Eastover look terrible, but darn, forgive me, it has gone to hilarious at this point. The only saving grace is that somehow, I don 't think the national newspeople have picked up on this! When it is all said and done, perhaps the little jail there in Eastover could have a cell named after this idiot???? As a reminder what Eastover never wants to have happen again???
