Randy Scott’s Soft Landing

Former City of Columbia, S.C. police chief Randy Scott couldn’t handle the pressure of his six-figure job as the capital city’s top cop due to post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from the death of a fellow officer eight years ago. Yeah … and if you believe that story congratulations! You’re officially…

Former City of Columbia, S.C. police chief Randy Scott couldn’t handle the pressure of his six-figure job as the capital city’s top cop due to post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from the death of a fellow officer eight years ago.

Yeah … and if you believe that story congratulations! You’re officially qualified to serve as a member of the Palmetto State’s mainstream media.

The real reason Scott “resigned? That’s a much different story …

Bottom line? This self-proclaimed “family man” couldn’t keep his cock in his pants or his substance abuse problem under control. Oh and he was glaringly incompetent and a miserable failure when it came to keeping the public safe.

But hey … Scott has some well-connected friends, including Richland County, S.C. Sheriff Leon Lott. In fact this week Lott confirmed that his office had hired Scott to a $40,000-a-year position (not counting benefits).

What will Scott be doing? “Inspecting,” apparently (like a drug dog or something … just guessing).

Shocking?

Not in South Carolina … certainly it’s no more shocking than the cushy taxpayer-funded job that Richland County leaders awarded to the woman who helped them steal an election.

Richland County has taken first place in the Most Corrupt County in South Carolina competition. Even with those nanby pamby raids today on the Lexington County “town” (read “dump – speed trap”) South Congaree, Lexington County did not get back into first place. Horry County has fallen to a third place.

This is such so bad. Explain why the City of Columbia officials have been indicted for paying that $52,000.00 to get Scott that retirement package???? I swear if I did not know better, Darryl Jackson and his cronies were in charge.

oh and don’t forget that he will also collect a little over 50% of his old salary under his “retirement”…so he is really making in the neighborhood of 96K a year (40K + 56K).

No big shock there. The RCSD henchmen still operating at CPD are still conducting witch hunts unrelated to this debacle, and it goes all the way to the goofy mayor. The political skullduggery over there is just unbelievable, and that’s a tall statement here in SC. I wish some of those civil suits would go public- at least one has been filed, I believe.

Sheriff Lott should send Runt up to Boston immediately

A little less than two weeks ago Runt was suffering from PTSD to the point that he gave up a six figure salary and a butt load of booty

Then wham-o, cured, ready to pin on a badge, holster a 45 Magnum, crawl behind the wheel of a Hemi Head Dodge Charger to go chasing the bad guys. Damn he is good

If Runt can put PTSD in the closet that quick, his curative powers need to be shared with PTSD victims worldwide especially those in Boston

Maybe the anti-gun people should intervene. OH THE OUTRAGE! Someone claimed to be suffering from PTSD (a mental illness) a few short weeks ago, and now they will be carrying a weapon? Where’s Homeland Security?? In all seriousness, I call BS on the whole issue. SLED and the FBI are obviously busy at the moment, but this dude should NOT go unchecked, and everyone who has covered his ass should not go unchecked in the process.

Just as I approved the Lillian McBride debacle for Darryl Jackson and Joel Lourie, I have approved this little shift in a Richland County Democratic Party re-alignment. If this situation should come before any Court in South Carollina, I will have the right circuit judge in place, then on appeal, I will be sure all parties involved are protected. The Feds? Bill has them under control for me. Now, you Republicans just move along. This situation is over. Will, no more articles on this or Lillian.

I will say that I’ve known a guy who went to Iraq, suffered PTSD as a result, and was a completely different man upon his return. Left his wife and indulged in some pretty awful shit. As far as I know his life is still a mess.

I highly, highly doubt that this is the case with Scott, though.

I just finished reading the article about General Lott and Weeping Randy in this morning’s Socialista. This story just keeps getting better. It seems that General Lott, with his keen eye for detail, immediately recognized that Weeping Randy was the “perfect fit” for the Inspector’s position at RCSD. After all, the job has been open for a long time. It’s just that nobody knew about the Inspector’s job. Well, some people knew about the job, they just didn’t do anything like post it or announce it to everybody else. It was sort of an internal (secret) vacancy. Anyway, thank God and the Apostles that this little known, well paying, and virtually useless job was just languishing in the shadows. No doubt General Lott realized that it would, at some time or another, be instrumental in Weeping Randy’s recovery from a mental illness.

One can only marvel at the many talents of General Lott. As if being a successful politician, police executive, and media star were not enough, now he can add mental health counselor to his resume. I am sure that mental health professionals all over the country are standing in awe of his brilliant therapeutic methods. As has been noted in a previous post, General Lott’s therapy includes a car with a police radio, a handgun, and the opportunity to talk to confrontational groups of people. I’ll bet those so called psychologist and psychiatrist must feel like a bunch dumbasses for not figuring out this approach to PTSD treatment.

Weeping Randy certainly has a full plate when it comes to mental problems. Fortunately, General Lott has all but put the PTSD issue on ice. What about those other problems? Never fear, you can almost see General Lott’s handiwork evolving. Look for Weeping Randy’s future employment to encompass door man at a strip club and custodian of the narcotics evidence locker. Weeping Randy is emerging from the darkness and General Lott is holding the flashlight.

This plot to steal from the taxpayers did not happen without a great deal of analysis, thought and planning. The bottom line is that at the end of the day, it was determined by the Democratic Party operatives that with Toal controlling the Courts and the Democratic Party dominence in Richland County, they could get away with it. Just like the Lillian McBride debacle.

Interesting that Richland County just laid off several employees today for financial reasons yet can hire Randy Scott without caring about the food they took from the mouths of several people today and their families. Shame on Richland County. I guess those good employees that were not suffering from PTSD or involved in cover ups, cocaine, and prostitution rings, are not essential staff.
