    Why not make anymore comments Mr. Chief? This shows us all that Colleton County law enforcement personal are corrupt and think that they are above the laws of South Carolina ( especially CCSO and that punk Sheriff that thinks he can bully everyone). If you’ve had any negative interaction with law enforcement, or see them speeding, running red lights, breaking any sort of laws, record it if possible. If not, post it on social media anyway. We need to make this stuff go viral!!

    A. Zulu. You are 100 Percent correct about everything that is happening in Colleton county. There is a lot more to be addressed. Everyone in Colleton county needs to visit wrongthinkradio.com and search Colleton. Supporters for the sheriff don’t want to believe things but the truth will come out. Facts are facts! His wife and children do not deserve the pain that Andy has forced them to go through. Andy’s best friend Nate bristo. Shot someone in the back as they were leaving. We will see what happens. Beart sweat captain in the wpd. Drove his city owned police vehicle drunk and wrecked it and he was arrested on I 26. Andy and his wife continue to drive his County owned vehicle drunk and when they get stopped. He says,. I run this County not Nikki the pre governer who now works for the president. Please be aware of the truth Colleton county. Prayers for everyone.

    In the past month. A Capt. And a costodian of evidence for wpd have been charged. Also Det. Hill will have some explaining to do about a written statement to SLED in which she lied and proof is there. It’s just a matter of time.

    If you are afraid of or have been a victim of retaliation or any threats from any police officer, sheriff, deputy, or police chief, immediately contact SLED….they take those things VERY seriously. I called them, they told me to write to them what happened and they would take care of it. The SLED agent also told me to contact the Charleston FBI office and inform them of what is going on. Our citizens DO NOT and WILL NOT be held silent for fear of retaliation. Make this go viral!! Call SLED!! CALL the FBI. Trust me, they listen.
