NO WONDER CHARGES ARE BEING PRESSED … 

By FITSNews  ||  Earlier this week FITS was the first news outlet in the state to report that former S.C. Highway Patrol trooper Sean M. Groubert was facing criminal charges stemming from a September 4 traffic stop in which he shot an unarmed black man.

Groubert shot 35-year-old Levar Edward Jones – manager of a local Subway restaurant – after apprehending him three weeks ago on a seat belt violation.

That’s right … South Carolina law enforcement officials can detain you, fine you and – in this case – shoot you  for simply choosing not to wear your seat belt.

Amazing …

Anyway, we were also the first outlet in the state to provide details on what happened at the scene of this shooting … and discuss the initial reluctance by prosecutors to press charges against Groubert.

Prosecutors aren’t reluctant anymore, though.  Not after the S.C. Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) released a dash-cam video from the shooting that clearly shows a trigger-happy Groubert shooting Jones without justification or provocation.

Yeah … and that’s what a local solicitor initially termed a “clean” incident?  Please …

We said four years ago that primary seat belt enforcement was nothing but “an excuse for the cops to pull you over.”

Well they’re doing more than just pulling people over now …
