My post (#57) has several typos. I forgot to correct them before posting.  (May 30, 2008 | post #58)

One Dead in Lexington County Accident

This is about the funniest post I have ever read on ANY forum. You must not get out much or have your head in the sand. On any typical day that I drive my vehicle, I encounter countless numbers of stupid people. Sit beside any road and watch how many people seem to think they can drive and talk/text on a cell phone while driving, when most can barely walk and chew bubble gum at the same time. Pay attention to your rear-view mirror and count the idiots that follow you too closely. Pay attention to the brainless people who fail to use turning signals "properly " or at all. Not to mentin the morons who cut you off, pull out in front of you, or as in this case, making a left turn in front of you. I used to be offended that Southerners have always been stereotyped as stupid. As each day goes by and I am victimized by mean and stupid people, I am no longer offended, but now I totally agree. I am just afraid taht one of these days I will be pushed too far and will have to commit some vigilante justice......espec ially since law enforcement can not or will not protect the innocent victims on SC Dieways. I do, by the way, agree with your post.  (May 30, 2008 | post #57)

One Dead in Lexington County Accident

I am amazed at the number of people who have the guts to ride a motorcycle on SC Dieways. I am afraid everyday to drive in my van, much less a motorcycle. This is a tragic story and my prayers go out to the family and friends of the young man.  (May 30, 2008 | post #54)

Fatal Accident on I-20 near North Main

It is not legal to drive golf carts on the roads. Call the cops.  (May 22, 2008 | post #52)

Fatal Accident on I-20 near North Main

What about people who live in the City and choose to use a moped rather than a gas guzzling car/truck? People just need to be cautious, act as though they have a little human decency, and show that they possess at least one intelligent brain cell. I do not know all of the details surrounding this "wreck", but I would guess that had it been a motorcycle rather than a moped, the outcome would have been the same. I would also bet that the driver of the car was on the cell phone.  (May 22, 2008 | post #48)

Deputies: Man Shoots Stepson Over Crack Cocaine

Do you think the step-son was smiling and saying "pretty please" or something like that? Maybe you should go to the Richland County Detention Center, or other facility, and see what some of these druggies go through when they are unable to get their next fix. I have a (step) niece who is hooked on crack and she has said to me, and I quote: "I would kill my mama for another hit of crack." I would bet my bottom dollar that the old man was very much justified in what he did. I wonder how much money and property the step-son has stolen from this man already.  (May 22, 2008 | post #32)

Skimpy Prom Dress?

Did the school not inform the children of what is and is not appropriate attire for prom? I just can't believe that anyone in their right mind would think that they could attend a high school prom in that dress. Though I realize teens do not always exercise good judgment, that is where the guidance of their parents comes in. Surely the child's mother should have realized that the dress was inappropirate.  (May 15, 2008 | post #863)

Man Arrested for Soliciting a Minor Online

Great post! I would like to add that there are many, many, many men who have these fantasies, but fortunately have never acted on them because they fear getting caught. Who knows when any of them will cross that line? The ones caught like this over the internet, I would guess, are probably more apt to cross the line because they are already risking getting caught. You can't listen to the local news and not know of all the pedo-pervs that have been caught as of late, in particular, the ones caught via the internet. Someone else posted that law enforcement has been "chatting " with him over a year. The cops have to make sure they have their ducks in a row before they make an arrest. One minute screw-up and these entire case will be thrown out of court. Evidence gathered improperly can not be used in court.  (May 15, 2008 | post #36)

Deadbeat Parents Owe $6.1 Million Dollars in Back Child S...

For one thing, the non-custodial parent is not out making other babies they will not take care of, and Second, it will give them time to think, and if they don't want to go back to jail, they better start paying.  (May 14, 2008 | post #173)

10-Year-Old Rape Victim Gives Birth

Deport him? He needs to pay for what he has done, to the child and the newborn. I don't know, but I think it would be difficult to deal with knowing that you are in the world because your mother was raped. He needs to be imprisoned and made to work to pay child support to whomever raises this baby. When the baby turns 18 or completes college, then he needs to be executed. Then his body can be deported.  (May 8, 2008 | post #12)

Man Accused of Having Sex with Three-Year-Old

That would be too quick. This pedo-perv needs to suffer. He molested the victim for 13 years....he needs to suffer that long. I volunteer for the job.  (May 6, 2008 | post #119)
