Skip to comments.Southern small town becomes wild west

Walterboro is a small community along Interstate 95. It sits about one hour north of Savannah, Georgia. It is a small town typical of the south. It belongs to a section, of the part of South Carolina, known as the Lowcountry. It is 45 minutes from the ocean and has its own watery areas,swamps. When you think of small town America, Walterboro is a place you may think of. But the last week, Walterboro has become like LA.

The campaign for gun control is being stepped up.
Too many Obama voters. Can’t shoot straight and hit bystanders.
I can’t access the site from work, but the opening paragraph reads like it was written by a sixth grader doing a book report.
Small town violence is usually more personal, I’m supposing that’s the crux of this article or was it “gang related” as alluded to in the opening paragraph?
Working in a small town in Eastern North Carolina. Shocked at how much cocaine and other drug use there is. People drive FROM Wilmington to this area to buy coke. Reason? Whole lot of inner city people moved back to the area to be with family, and transported all their problems with them. Drugs, AIDS, gangs and the welfare lifestyle.
BINGO. We have a winner; no more calls please....

Giving a *shout out* to the South!!!!
A Dark day in a small town.
This “small town violence” appears to be your run of the mill negro on negro violence. The only thing novel about it is the location.
that’s racist! (/sarc)
And the timing (concentration) of the incidents. Having deer hunted around there for over 15 years I can tell you this is out of character for Walterboro.
This article appears to have been written by a retarded person.
Thanks for the info, I suspected as much.
Yeah. That is the town that's been running legalized theft for many years. It's notorious for running speed traps that catch just about everyone who doesn't live in the area and know the treacherous way they have it set up.
Want proof? Pick a day, drive by and take pictures of the out-of-town/out-of-state license plates of the MULTITUDE of cars sitting in the grass parking lot ouside of the make-shift ram-shackle building sitting on the main drag through town. Inside you'll find it filled with folding chairs to seat the latest crop of suckers (daring to contest their ticket) whose "case" will be heard by the local magistrate and his cronies sitting behind a long table in the front of the room.
The racket they run in that town is one for the history books.
I worked with a guy from Walterboro last week, and I couldn't understand a thing he said.
You used the word ‘negro’. Are we allowed to do that? I thought it was decreed that its either Black or African-American.
You better watch out! LOL!
It could be worse, he could have used the English version of the word.
"Alleged" suspect? Does the author not know that that is redundant? Let's water it down some more and say "possible alleged suspect." Sheesh.
Guess being a ‘Yankee’, as they call anyone from north of the state line, I’ve just been lucky.
Hmm, the shooter’s name is Danziel. Yeah, that REALLY sounds like a white southern redneck name. Yawn.
Absolutely abysmal, childish writing.
What was the "get together"? A church picnic? A SEIU thugfest? A La Raza rant? A tea party?
All I get from this is that the shooting was a "drive-by"... :-(
Mark Shofner is definitely off my "Examiner read-list"... :-(
The closing and destruction of housing projects has dispersed their previous denizens, armed with Section 8 housing vouchers, throughout many suburbs and small towns.
Like many idiotic liberal notions, it was thought that once these people were freed from the evil buildings and grounds that caused them to behave like animals, they would instantly become productive, contributing good citizens.
...who wants hits to his blog, but never comes back to reply on FR.
...but replies via FRmail if you mistype and drop a single letter from his name...
Spammers I can deal with; illiterate spammers are a pain to us all.
This thread has taught me to avoid the scribblings of Mr "ff" -- and other sixth-grade "writers"...
But he does come back... to post more links to the super-crappy Huntingdon Examiner.
It gets worse as the article goes on, comparing it to a 6th grade report would be doing injustice to the 6th graders.
Doesn’t seem like it personal stuff, a drive by was mentioned with a 1 year old getting killed.
Looks like the Ole South is geting a taste of what we in the North / West Coast deal with all the time.
I thought the same thing, as soon as I saw the name I had to laugh. No need to read the rest of the article.
Very poorly written article.
The suthor needs to take a writing course, like 9th grade essay writing. This piece is about the 7th grade level and borders on incoherent.
Only because some of us hit the link to see how bad it was. And, it is very, very bad.
I guess it’s a good thing that the comments don’t offend me. After 13 years of receiving a few bad reviews and hate mail, these kinds of comments don’t register much. Go back and read more of my posts. Some are good, some may not be. But remember, that even the best writers don’t always make good reviews. Constructive criticism I listen too. The rest I mark down to either ignorance or the inability to analyze the work. Either way, I generally don’t listen to opinions. Even if you didn’t like it, you read it. That’s the only point that matters.
It's not really a matter of opinion in this case.
