PALMETTO STATE ON PACE FOR A RECORD YEAR …
|| By FITSNEWS || Agents of the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting in Lexington County, S.C. this week.
Timothy Milliken, 56, was shot and killed by two deputies of the Lexington County Sheriff’s office at around 5:00 p.m. EDT on Monday after allegedly threatening a member of his family with a knife.
“Fearing for the life of the family member, both officers discharged their service weapon, fatally striking the subject,” a statement from the sheriff’s office noted.
Milliken was pronounced dead at the scene due to multiple gunshot wounds in his upper torso.
As a matter of protocol, SLED is investigating the shooting at the request of the local law enforcement agency. And the deputies involved will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of that probe.
According to SLED, Monday’s incident was the 29th officer-involved shooting in South Carolina this year – putting the Palmetto State on pace for 51 such incidents this year. That would be up from 42 officer-involved shootings a year ago. In 2009, there were only 27 such shootings.
In addition to the Lexington incident, SLED is investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred in Horry County last Friday and another which took place in Seneca, S.C. on Sunday.
DUH: You act like this is the first time SLED has investigated a shooting. idiot.
With liberals everything (that can incriminate law enforcement) will be tried. No matter how stupid it makes the you look.
I’m sure the case file on you fills up a whole room.
But Lois Lerner had to dump the hard drive, Dumbass.
The records of your stupidity corrupted the drives. The corruption started becoming sentient and would constantly spam non-stop complaints about these mythical things called “Liberal-Tarians” and people shitting themselves. Naturally the IT department feared it was becoming a retarded and deranged version of Skynet and so they got rid of it before it could spread.
Now THIS is how you combat and prevent repeat offenses of CDV.
Of ALL the possible race/gender/socioeconomic combinations, there is only one setup this will work with. All others cost more than what it is worth.
Can’t believe no one has asked the all important question yet, what color was the shooter and what color was the shootee?
Most likely white cops and white suspect. Otherwise we’d be hearing about endless candle light vigils, memorials, “f the pigs” gatherings, and the like by now.
10+ for ingenuity …
We’d also be hearing some hysterical “eyewitness testimony”, like the Baltimore woman lying on camera about seeing cops shoot down a man. Or this:
Ferguson witness #35, “So, I seen Michael Brown, my best friend drop to his knees, he dropped to his knees he looked at my cousin and told him ‘run for your life.’”
Yeah, that story died rather quickly. She should have been jailed for gross stupidity and the FOX camera man/men who said they saw it fired. It turned out that NObody had been shot at all, but she “seen them police shoot him down fo no reason”.

I couldn’t care less how many there are, as long as they’re justifiable.
We give them tasers and they use it on old ladies on traffic stops, and shoot people who “look menacing.”
Make an example out of one of these fucking cops – send him to prison in a very public castigation, making it clear that police work for the people, and harming one of us without due cause – will land “even a cop” in prison. What a cop does to one of us outside of the courtroom matters.
Put his fucking ass in prison.
When they see they aren’t above the law, and they will end up in the same cage they put the animals in if they hurt someone – it will do a lot more than “have a nice day” would.
I don’t think they feel like it matters what they do, right now – they’ll be ok, and their actions will be called “justified…” and even if they are punished – worst case it will be not getting a pension.
Wow…don’t drive angry.
When we’re all armed, and a cop rolls up, everyone will shoot in self-defense.
A little nutty, that.
Only because the pre-teens would be better shots.
How about you strap on a badge and a gun and come show us how it’s done……
If I’m playing cop, how about you get your little boy, or grandson, a water pistol, and have him wait for me at the park?
