It is not surprising for this

It is not surprising for this to happen in that area. Sorry for the loss of life, but that is an area North Augusta Public Safety needs to clean up. There are good people residing in that area and putting up with the riff raff of drug dealings and other things. That neighborhood is no different than some in Richmond County with the crap going on and people looking the other way. North Augusta shutdown that teen hoodlum club so maybe the new chief there can clean up on Weston Street.

They've been dealing drugs in

They've been dealing drugs in that area for 30 years but NADPS are to worried about people going 5mph over the speed limit on Martintown Rd. Good job Luckey, Rogers and all the little spiked haired cops in NA.

You just wonder what a 19

You just wonder what a 19 year old would do that would provoke someone to murder. When I was 19, I was going to college and planning and enjoying my wedding.

Please, TakeAStand...pick

Please, TakeAStand...pick another acronym, statement, or something! Although I usually agree with you, it's getting soooooo old seeing it over and over on every single crime article. I mean, really, really, really OLD - especially considering how freakin much crime is happening these days. It's as predictable as justus and his conspiracy theories LOL. Please? Thanks so much for your consideration! :)

Sorry, I considered it, and

Sorry, I considered it, and sometimes Ido use a different one, sometimes I don't, but I think it describes them well and since I can't use the words I really would like, this is what I use. I am hoping the criminals themselves or friends family whatever see it and let them know! =) Just as you do with justus and all the people who make ignorant posts daily, just skip over it. =) Plenty of people on here get on my nerves with their same BS. lol I might would consider it for a reg on here that I like, but I have never seen you before. How do I know you aren't one of those posters on here I can't stand? lol They change their name a lot so they can post BS. And I dang sure ain't doing any of them any favors!! haha

One more time the paper can

One more time the paper can just "copy and paste" the description of the perp. When will we ever hear that the suspect is described as a white male with blonde hair and blue eyes?

I agree with humbleopinion,

I agree with humbleopinion, when are we going to hear that the perp is nothing but the ordinary description. I truly hope that the [filtered word] is caught and thrown in jail forever.Anyone who murders intentionally should be in prison for life,Or executed immediately.

Unless the killer is

Unless the killer is speeding, North Augusta PS wont catch him. They cant even play the game CLUE by Milton Bradley. If you want to commit a crime, North Augusta is your town.
