Realize that we are all human
I write this letter not to defend our current sheriff of Colleton County for his activities that we are well aware of by now, but to make some of you realize that we all are human, and sometimes we all fall short of our actions.
Everybody wants to say negative things about the sheriff, but not one time did anyone step up to say during his term in office how he did his best in eradicating those criminal-minded menaces to society — so called “Cowboys” — off the streets. And we all know what they were capable of doing.
Not to mention, if you actually knew the man for who he really is, you could paint a much clearer picture of him.
Now what happens between the two parties involved, the courts would have to make a decision on that. I wasn’t there and neither were the most of you, but until we can look in the mirror at our ownselves, then and only then shall we cast the first stone!
Did we forget about our last sheriff before our current sheriff took over? His secretary almost killed his wife near the Arby’s and Burger King area, and I’ve been told that she is a pastor now. Would be curious as to how she could preach a sermon about sinning.
To Elder James Johnson, who said on the news how our sheriff is off the chain, you need to try and help clean us all of the senseless killings and murders that are going on in your county and North Charleston.
To sum up this letter, if the sheriff is guilty of the crime, then he must pay for it. But we have no heaven or **** to put anyone in, simply because we are all humans and we all fall short!

To all citizens of Colleton County. As we celebrate the joy of this Thanksgiving season, let us not forget the family of Raniya Wright, whose young life was cut show following an incident at Forest Hills Elementary School.
We can’t sweep this under the run and expect it to go away. Somebody knows what really happened.
Matthew 10:26 says, “Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, and hidden that shall not be known.” The whole truth will come out.
