SC has it’s own grotesque legacy of “not a hate crimes” the past 20 years, so methodically and deliberately covered up by media, state government and law enforcement that nobody even knows they happened.

You would have to have been a resident here, and on the “net” since the early days to even know about these.

I grew up in Charleston so I used to read the News and Courier daily online, where I first read about the McLaughlin rape/torture/murder, and only well after the fact when one of the defendants was being released from prison after a light sentence.

These hate crimes both recieved ZERO media coverage, television or newspaper, in the state’s capital, Columbia.

Needless to say no federal or state government attention, nor from the state solicitor’s office, the governor, or any “civil rights” organizations.

Only Michael Graham mentioned the Knapp lynching once in his syndicated column carried by the Free Times, a local (Columbia, SC) free paper.

Melissa “Missi” Ann McLaughlin murder: 12/30/1992 Charleston, SC (WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS)

Troy Knapp, N. Charleston, October 1999.

“But police have said robbery, not race, appeared to be the motive for the assault.”

It took 10 years for Troy to die, part of his skull and brain had to be removed after he was “lynched” by a racist mob. All his murderers are free now.

Needless to say, the dead victim’s families didn’t recieve one cent in “restitution” from any of the perps.

“He never got a dime of the restitution money his attackers had been ordered to pay, and no life insurance company would touch him.”
