A day after this website exclusively reported on a missing records scandal at the Berkeley County, S.C. court house, the facility has been targeted by a bomb threat.

According to The Berkeley Independent, the threat was called in at 8:15 a.m.

A bomb squad from neighboring Charleston County is on the scene, while presiding judges – including circuit court judge Kristi Harrington – have reportedly been transferred to a “secure, undisclosed location.”

Craziness, huh?

FITS reported earlier this week that an S.C. Attorney General’s investigation into missing money in the court system had uncovered “potentially a decade’s worth of missing court records,” according to one source.

Totally false reporting

There was no bomb threat
There was no bomb
All this was made up by a disgruntled candidate
The world is not coming to an end
Jack and Jill were not bisexual
In fact Berkeley County is in the State of California
Move along, nothing to see here

No news here. This happens all over the state from time to time. Anderson had one a few weeks ago and it was no big deal.

Unless you are somehow implying you influenced/caused this action, I fail to see the point of bringing it up.

“Secure,undisclosed location”…..

Throw in “climate controlled” and it sounds like the same place the *missing* records are alleged to be.

So your saying that Harrington took the records, money and is protected, way cool, kinna like me. Here is what happened to the Scarlett Wison story, Alan Wilson dropped the Frederick claim. Pure as the driven snow.

The last person to do that was Lasch, at the Charleston District Courthouse, who knew that the FBI was there to talk with him. Both federal and state courthouses were closed for the day, the 10:30 hearing was cancelled, the case settled out of court, and Lasch became difficult to find. The warning came from a public phone between Kiawah and the courthouse.

[yawn] still posting “murky details”. What does “missing money” from the “court system” even have to do with a “bomb threat”? By the way, did you know there are several “Courts” in the “court system”? There is municipal court, traffic court, magistrates court, bond court, civil court, criminal court and family court. So your “alleged missing money” could be from any “court”.
Again, give the cold hard facts instead of “murky details”, please.
