White Cop Charged for Black Man’s Murder in South Carolina

richard-combsA grand jury has indicted Richard Combs, a white man who, while the police chief of a small South Carolina town, shot and killed an unarmed black man nearly four years ago.

When Bernard Bailey, 54, came to Eutawville’s town hall in 2011 to argue about a broken-taillight ticket for his daughter, Combs tried to arrest him on obstruction of justice. When Bailey went back outside to his truck, Combs tried to get inside, prosecutors said. After the two fought, Combs shot Bailey twice in the chest while in his vehicle. Read it at The Post and Courier.

  1. Notice that he’s only getting indicted now, FOUR YEARS after the killing. Guess they’re a little nervous about having the DOJ poking around in their departmental records. Not to mention the TV cameras.

  2. To comment #1: Whether you’re being sarcastic or serious you are potentially causing great harm by insinuating to others that the recent events are about the race of the victims. They are about the criminal happenstance that brought about their respective unfortunate demise. Playing the race card only adds fuel to the baseless presumption that these people were only killed because of their race and not their actions. Don’t do it. Aside from it potentially causing great harm it’s also disrespectful to those who put their life at risk to ensure your safety.

  3. Commenter 4: you said: “Aside from it potentially causing great harm it’s also disrespectful to those who put their life at risk to ensure your safety.”

    The problem is that you give a gun to someone that has killed unarmed people so..people are putting their life on the line by trusting someone with a gun.
    And yes RACISM is a reality in America people do not change so quickly from the sad history of open discrimination as recent as last decade.

    Even in some of our “frum” communities we have to do a lot more to get rid of racism.
