About Randy Scott’s “Indefinite Suspension”

This week’s announcement by the City of Columbia, S.C. that police chief Randy Scott had taken an indefinite leave of absence caught virtually everyone in South Carolina’s capital by surprise.

Ready for the next bombshell?

Scott – whose tenure has been marred by incompetence and a dramatic escalation in violence – won’t be coming back. His “indefinite suspension” will be turning into a retirement announcement (or possibly even a termination for cause) within the next few weeks, sources tell FITS.

Why? Well we’re not necessarily disputing accounts in The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper citing “workplace issues” as a reason for Scott’s suspension (we’ve been hearing those rumors for several months) but that would appear to be the least of Scott’s problems.

Most of the drama enveloping the soon-to-be-former chief appears to be emanating from the downtown Columbia, S.C. apartment where he reportedly spends most of his nights. According to our sources, Scott – who is said to have a serious substance abuse problem – frequently hosted lavish, Nero-esque parties at his Main Street pad.

“Strippers, college coeds, booze, blow, you name it,” says a source who attended one of Scott’s shindigs.

Obviously that sort of thing doesn’t really offend us … people doing what they want to do behind closed doors is what America is (or at least should be) all about. As long as it doesn’t hurt anybody else, cost tax dollars or impede in their ability to do their job, we have no problem with people getting their “freak on” – even if they are married with eight children (like Scott).

Of course in Scott’s case, his night life was not only interfering with his job performance – it was apparently exposing the city to blackmail threats.

“He got way, way out of hand,” another source familiar with Scott’s hard-partying ways tells FITS. “Lots of girls.”

According to multiple sources, Scott was especially attracted to younger white women – and often used his position to offer (and provide them with) protection.

In one incident, the Columbia, S.C. fire department was reportedly called to investigate some sort of minor conflagration at Scott’s apartment. Accounts differ as to the severity of the fire, but all of the sources we’ve spoken to insist the blaze was covered up by the city to protect Scott from embarrassment. In fact a source at City Hall tells FITS this cover-up was recently used as leverage to secure an across-the-boards eight percent raise for city firefighters in the upcoming budget (police are getting only a two percent raise).

Scott and mayor Steve Benjamin are also reportedly sweating a lawsuit from the city’s former top investigator, who was fired after the city botched the investigation into a high profile disappearance-turned-suicide.

And of course then there’s the mayor’s alleged involvement with a video poker ring run out of neighboring Lexington County – which many contend Scott knew about.

FITS reached out to Scott again seeking comment … but as was the case yesterday he did not immediately return calls and messages.

Columbia is obviously no stranger to controversy involving its top cops. The city’s last chief – Tandy Carter – was fired in May 2010 after he objected to the city’s alleged interference into an investigation involving Benjamin’s controversial car crash, which left a Columbia, S.C. hotel worker with permanent physical damage. Specifically, Carter said that the investigation into Benjamin’s crash was being run by City Hall, and that he refused to be a “puppet police chief.”

He may not make a great – or even adequate – Police Chief, but surely he can run the County Election Commission or manage the city or something. This man must continue to earn a paycheck for his unrivaled skill set. See to it, Mayor West.

How does someone who was just hired (he retired & was probably paid for all his accumulated leave) have any leave to take leave with pay? Sounds fishy to me, but so does much of what the City of Columbia does.

Not clear if he is on paid or unpaid leave. Usually a personal leave of absence is unpaid and has a clear return-to-work date. He may be using any newly-earned leave since the rehire (which is probably about a week or so) because he may lose that new leave if he is fired. And/or this time out is probably being used to craft an agreement for his departure. Or if some bad news is imminent, to minimize any disruption at the PD and get his legal, personal and professional affairs in order beforehand.

lol…do you really wonder? Sure, some of them are put in property lockers, disposed of, etc….but knowing the right cops very well gets you a steady stream of dope if you want it.

Even further, how often do you think cops pocket cash from dope dealers on stops and send them on their way? Happens all the time….sometimes the cops still have the balls to throw the dealers in the joint.

I can’t tell you how many times some stupid dealer complains to the judge during a bail hearing that the cops took his money and it goes ignored…the judge pretends like he never heard it and continues on.

It’s a regular occurrence in many precincts. Some departments now have policy to make them frisk perps “on camera” in front/behind the car..but not all…and there’s ways to get around that too.

What about allegations by Ms Greene made in an interview with a local TV station last year????? As I recall, she made comments about how Scott’s “Police Foundation” (or whatever it was called) was not properly keeping track of monies it solicited from citizens. She also noted that while Scott discontinued the time-honored tradition of presenting retiring officers with their badge and gun, apparently people connected with this “Foundation” who were neither police officers nor retired police officers were somehow winding up in possession of police badges.

While Steve Gantt appeared to be the main instigator of discontinuing awarding of guns and badges to retiring officers, it appears that Scott was not protesting very loudly and gladly danced to this tune for Gantt.

The tradition of awarding an officer his or her gun and badge seem a very small but deserved token for all of the missed holidays with family, missed ball games, missed birthdays, missed dance recitals, missed trips to the fair, and other things endured by the officers and their families because the job needed them.

If these badges were winding up in the hands of people who did not deserve them, this needs to be brought out. WHO and WHY? Same goes for the management of funds for his Police Foundation. WHAT happened there?

The across the board pay raise for the ff’s is the remainder of a 10% raise promised in 2007 — of course only 3.3% of that was given, then they took away five holidays away which added 120 hours extra to be worked annually, in addition to furloughs and increased insurance premiums. The FF’s are trying to get the remainder of a raise promised six years ago when the COC acknowledged they were far below the SE average. This is why they have an attrition crisis on their hands — they can not fully staff all of the trucks.

Hey Fits! Can you check and see if there is anything to the rumors I just heard about a certain vertically challenged police official having had more than one wreck in a city vehicle while DUI? I hadn’t previously heard this one so I don’t know if it has merit or not.

It is fairly common knowledge that he does like to fall into the bottle on a regular occasion. Whether or not this is true, I cannot be certain. Is there a way to search collision reports turned in by various jurisdictions such as SCHP, CPD, RCSD, FAPD, or other?

Has he been heard singing this song, lately?

Public corruption is everywhere in SC. It is an important part of ourpublic culture. It happens because “good people” in public office say nothing about what they see. Watching the “truth” about these Sheriffs
and also Columbia’s top cop become public is no surprise to the IN crowd as they ALL know it.

This reminds me of the South Carolina Investment Commission. A couple hundred people know about the unacceptable behavior of the Commission leaders but only State Treasurer Loftis will speak publicly about it and many powerful people are working diligently to keep the problems out of the press. As a retiree I follow this dismal situation and wonder how a system can become so corrupt.

It is OUR way to say nothing. To get along. To hide our heads in the sand. Standing up for truth is not part of our way. From slavery to public corruption in pensions and the police we watch, we know, and we say nothing.

And he’s wrecked a city car since becoming chief, he didn’t report it, he had his goons take it to a body shop to get it repaired.
And the city better be careful with the acting chief cause his integrity record ain’t real good either.

Here we go again. We are simply lacking class in role model positions. When are we going to get it right?

I am an old friend of Officer Wines, currently employed with CPD The man lied about serving in the military and actually says he was a recipient of a purple heart. He is still telling employees (I still remain friends with one) that he is serving. It is known to not be true, yet he gets away with it… even Scott has known for a while. He has also been charged with domestic abuse. And guess who came to support him at his hearing when his wife wanted an order of protection? Scott. What a shmuck.

He recently divorced his wife in January. This may be why he took this leave of absence…considering they both worked together…

His wife works at Richlamd County Sheriff Dept. and they hadnt been together since he became interm Chief and he’s been cheating on her for years so I doubt that has anything to do with it.

This guy has been scum for years. I knew him when he was working for the RCSD and he cheated on his wife with sooooooo many women. I’m sure he will try to lie his way out of it, but can he lie about the fact that he was screwing the apartment manager at Hunt Club Apts? Yes, Mrs. Leslie……and then Willie found out. Everyone knew you were white trash, but a home wrecker? Well now we know
