S.C.

An “incoherent” South Carolina woman is undergoing a mental evaluation in Volusia County, Florida after attempting to drive her minivan into the ocean near Daytona Beach, Florida.

Inside the vehicle with her at the time? Her three children – aged 10, 9 and 3.

W … T … F, right?

Wrong … did you not read the part of the article that identified this driver as a “South Carolina woman?”

At approximately 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon, the unidentified woman’s Honda Odyssey was observed by a beach safety officer driving recklessly down the shoreline – parallel to the ocean. Eventually the car banked to the east into the Atlantic – becoming partially submerged after being struck by a wave. It eventually floated to a stationary position – at which point the three children and their mother were removed by volunteer citizens and paramedics who had arrived on the scene.

The three children are currently in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) – although as we’ve noted previously that’s not necessarily a good thing.

What happened?

Witness Tim Tesseneer of Rutherfordton, N.C. told local television station WESH TV 2 (NBC – Orlando) that the children were pleading for their lives.

“Our mommy’s trying to kill us, please help,” one of the children said, according to Tesseneer.

And the woman?

“She had this look on her face,” Tesseneer said. “I can’t describe it. It was just an awful blank look, like spaced out look.”

Unconfirmed reports indicate the woman many have been pregnant at the time of the incident.

The incident recalled painful memories of another South Carolina woman, Susan Smith, who in 1994 rolled her Mazda Protegé off of a boat ramp into John D. Long Lake near Union, S.C. – killing her 3-year-old and one-year-old boys.

Smith initially claimed she had been carjacked by a black man, but later admitted she let her car roll into the lake as part of an effort to maintain an extramarital affair with a wealthy man who did not want children in his life. Sentenced to life in prison in 1995, Smith is eligible for parole in 2024.

UPDATE: The woman, 32-year-old Ebony Wilkerson of North Charleston, S.C., has been charged with three counts of attempted murder and three counts of child abuse.

Obama is in favor of Infanticide (post-birth and 3rd term abortion) like the murders liberal democrat Dr. Vermin Gosnell committed, but FITS bashes South Carolina…

vicupstate March 5, 2014 at 4:03 pm

Yes, of course, it’s Obama’s fault. Was he responsible for Susan Smith’s actions as well?

SCBlueWoman March 5, 2014 at 4:18 pm

That Obama, it’s raining here today. THANKS President Obama.

GrandTango March 5, 2014 at 4:45 pm

I’m referring to FITS’ constant and self-loathing determination to BASH South Carolina FIRST…..while he is silent, or defensive of the condoning of mass murder by a powerful elected official…

But if you “first” responders to this thread are an indication…maybe he is right to think everyone in the state is an @$$-backward Dumb@$$….you certainly do provide evidence for his case…

Will someone please remove that record from the victrola. The needle has been stuck on the same chord for years and it has officially become annoying. Every post you make here bashes Folks for not admonishing abortion. Have you not been reading.this site? He has made several statements in my short time here. My analysis of you: Angry old white man who feels every bit of control has been taken from him and he just cannot stand it so he comes on here with some made up name and hammers people over and over again. Get a life dude—get laid and get happy—if no one will give to you freely there are professionals who charge just be careful not to get arrested. Geez.

GrandTango March 5, 2014 at 5:09 pm

I’m likely not as old as you. Most people making millions in the abortion mills are bitter, hateful old, haggard, soulless @$$holes…or they seek revenge, like Obama…

I think life is beautiful and wonderful…and the right to life should not be CONTROLLED by you, Obama and a bunch of old cigarette-ravaged hags at the DNC and Planned Parenthood.

So as long as you are still in favor of murdering babies…I’ll keep reminding you of your shame…

That said: if it is bothering you so much…It might be a good idea to kneel down and talk to God about it…don’t you think….How many more millions do you want killed to satisfy your blood lust???

<3 kisses n hugs too you as well dear…. cept i don't vote for democrats. I believe abortion is between a woman, her doctor and her God and should not be performed after 24 weeks.. I am not here to legislate morality, that said, I am personally against it as the emotional toll it takes on those involved has to be tremendous. So you continue your tirades and your years of peeling back the onion with your diatribes and let me know how all that works our for you. BTW, I know some good therapists if you ever need to purge some that rage you have boiling over in you.

GrandTango March 5, 2014 at 6:16 pm

You deny all you want…but in effect, w/ your defense of abortion and hatred for me, you may has well have the scalpel in your hand..

It’s head-buried idiots like you, made to feel so sophisticated and “open-minded” by the liberals..who are the reason the country is in such a mess of confusion..

You are ignorant, and have no core values, backbone or morality…yet you preach on like a self-righteous demagogue…

Lee Padgett March 5, 2014 at 9:13 pm

I am neither ignorant nor spineless. I have my core values and morality that I live by. I do not judge nor tell other people they are damned and murderers, that is their stuff not mine. You, GT, I assume are a bloated Republican, and you are just as much at fault as the libs. Your ilk wants to ban and do away with freedom and liberty and the Democrats want to do away with certain rights and then make everything permissible by law. You are f-ing both wrong. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it, a little peyote may make you a better conversationalist instead of someone coming to a polite discussion with his jackhammer. Good night and good riddance. Find the cause of that rage and deal with it. You are heading for a coronary and me thinks most people would balk at giving you mouth to mouth. Oh my, pardon me Did I just get personal? OOPS.

You would think SC is loaded with crazies according to fits. We have our share but no more or less than any other state.

Crazy Ass Bitch. I certainly hope the kids are ok and they have someone sane and responsible to take care of them. It’s sick that a parent would intentionally harm their children.

scotty March 6, 2014 at 1:19 pm

WTF does this state have to do with her obvious mental illness. I guess you forget the drowning’s in Texas. It would appear hard up for headlines while looking to skip out of the local corruption news. How about the astronomical ball park, shit flowing in the streets, the Keystone cops and the illegal voting outfit etc.
