Former SC trooper arrested

  • Follow Crime & courts

COLUMBIA — A former South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has been charged with assault and battery.

Richland County sheriff’s deputies arrested 48-year-old Gregory Miller earlier this week and accused him for an incident that occurred last month.

Deputies were called to a home Sept. 17 by a woman who says she had been choked by the trooper after she had ended a 12-year relationship with him. .

Miller was fired Oct.5.

The woman says she and Miller argued in her front yard and they went inside where she says he shook her and began to choke her. She called deputies after he left the home.

The Department of Public Safety says Miller had been with the Highway Patrol since 2007.

It was not clear if he has an attorney.

Don't our journalism schools teach students proper construction of paragraphs any more?

Talk about proper construction, your comment should read "Doesn't our journalism..." not "Don't"

Actually I think you are both

Actually I think you are both wrong. It's a bad sentence for a contraction but if you must use one, since schools is plural, "don't" would be correct. My vote is for:

"Do our journalism schools not teach students proper.....?"

JMHO

Don't is correct. Punctuation

Don't is correct. Punctuation marks go inside the quotation mark.

LL is correct, as is

LL is correct, as is Riverman. Dichotomy is too, but I tend to view posting comments as less formal than writing an article. "Don't" is quite all right with me.

Who cares? He was a former trooper. This should be no reflection on current Troopers.

Your so called correction makes my flesh crawl. Didn't you have teachers who had you remove modifiers and get to the subject and verb if you had doubts?

I care that it happened but

I care that it happened but don't think him being a former Trooper should be brought up. People want to talk trash about law enforcement but scream for their help when they need it.

Some people are just

Some people are just naturally held to a higher standard by society. That is why his former line of work was mentioned. If he had been the preacher at a church, a doctor, lawyer, or politician, it would have been mentioned.

I completely understand. It's

I completely understand. It's just that I see a lot of "formers" where I work and try to separate them from society. Some people slip through the cracks. Some are in very high places too LOL

Let me weigh in....

Speaking of the dumbing down of America. Many times, we ignore misspelled words, poor grammar, misspoken words, etc. even by the media! How sad that we've been reduced to the use of ebonics & forced to accept it as the norm.
