MORE PROBLEMS IN NIKKI HALEY’S CABINET …

Another one of S.C. governor Nikki Haley‘s cabinet agencies is reportedly in chaos …

Shocker, right?

While South Carolina’s chief executive is busy campaigning on behalf of “Republican” establishment favorite Marco Rubio at ritzy hotels in the Atlanta suburbs, sources tell us her juvenile justice agency has been going up in flames … literally.

We’re referring to the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice (SCDJJ), which experienced a “major riot” over the weekend – the latest disturbance in what we’re told is an “escalating pattern” of violence.

According to one of our sources, “several of the boys got loose” at the agency’s detention facility on Broad River Road in northwest Columbia, S.C. over the weekend. More than 100 children – males and females between the ages of 12-17 – are housed at the facility.

One of the juveniles somehow got behind the wheel of a law enforcement vehicle during the incident – crashing it into a structure on campus and doing extensive damage, we’re told.

While correctional officers were dealing with that situation, several of the males housed at the facility reportedly broke into one of the dormitories housing female juveniles.  Extensive damage was done to that facility, too.

God knows what else happened … although we’re sure our readers can imagine.

Ready for the craziest story from the riot?

According to our sources, one juvenile housed at the facility escaped during the confusion through a sewage pipe during the chaos – and SCDJJ officials never even knew he was gone.

“The only way they found out was one of the nurses at the agency was at a nearby retail store and saw the boy,” our source said.  “She recognized him because she’d given him his medicine the day before.”

The nurse called 911 and the juvenile was arrested – at which point SCDJJ officials became aware he was missing.

We reached out to SCDJJ in the hopes of receiving a comment on the situation – but none was immediately forthcoming.  The agency is currently run by Sylvia Murray, who was appointed by Haley in 2015.

Last weekend’s riot is reportedly the latest in a series of violent incidents.  Back in December, several fires were ignited at the facility by juveniles – but SCDJJ officials downplayed these conflagrations as minor incidents.

Chaos in Haley’s cabinet is obviously nothing new: Various scandals forced the resignations of multiple cabinet directors during her first term in office – including Abraham Turner at the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW), Jim Etter at the S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR), Robert St. Onge of the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT), Lillian Koller of the S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS) and Kela Thomas of the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services (SCDPPPS).

Each of these “leaders” went down under duress … and several of them lost their jobs thanks to scandals originating on this website.

Since then, Haley has seen a second SCDOT director step down at the insistence of legislative leaders.

Also, other agencies have had serious problems that probably should have resulted in resignations … but didn’t.

So when should we see the indictment listing you as a co-conspirator?

I would like Ms. Haley to know that when she’s finished her 2nd term that I have need for shady bookkeeping from time to time.

Please come see me Ms. Haley after your tenure, I will still employ you regardless of your history.

Yep. All the sewage is in the rivers. Consequently, the pipe was empty, clean and dry.

On the back of that woman’s shirt — does it have PROPERTY OF SCDJJ printed on it?

Reply

I guess that is the SCDJJ agency head, Sylvia Murray, next to Haley.
Yeah, I bet that woman never wore that shirt to work. She would have probably been shot as she left work at the end of the day.

Still waiting for Fits to quit ignoring that story so I can share my pet conspiracy theory.

Let’s just say that it really looks like Gregmeister took a hit for The Ring and promises to look out for him are being kept, so far.

I saw that someone posted a question on the initial report here, “Check out who he(the murdered lover) works for.”

Anyone know the answer to that?

CorruptionInColumbia March 1, 2016 at 5:12 pm

I never got an answer on that but someone elsewhere mentioned The Rawl Farm, which had strong ties to current and former LCSD higher ups, getting slammed for using illegals, recently. I don’t know if she was tied to that or not.

Tazmaniac March 1, 2016 at 5:22 pm

Sounds like she had a part in making the Farm Raw!

shifty henry March 1, 2016 at 5:53 pm

The article I saw said the guy worked for a farm that had a name like (tuv)) or (wxy) — something like that, but I don’t remember where I read that.

Fits really keeps us informed. From the December jobs report (latest available, released 1/26/16):
True — False: The largest over-the-month percentage increase in employment occurred in Alaska (+0.8 percent), followed by Arkansas, South Carolina, and Tennessee (+0.7 percent each).

True. — False: The largest over-the-year percentage increases [in jobs] occurred in Idaho (+4.4 percent), South Carolina (+3.3 percent), and Utah (+3.2 percent).

Question 1 : How much did Ms. Murray “contribute” to Nikki’s campaign ? From what I have noticed this is the worst pay to play administration yet . We need a Trump to run for gov. in 18. The state house would be in turmoil like DC is now. Sounds like fun. LOL

I know the ones — to me they look like the seat covers from a 1969 Ford Pickup (you know the ones that are now only two paint jobs – faded brown & white and faded green & white). Many of them are still on the highways and the byways — you’ll hear them coming.)

We reached out to SCDJJ in the hopes of receiving a comment on the situation – but none was immediately forthcoming. The agency is currently run by Sylvia Murray, who was appointed by Haley in 2015.

Let TBG guess:

Sylvia’s busy… too busy to come to the phone.

Miz Sylvia now she be a good Haley appointee—other than them riots and total chaos and mismanagement and all

And ole Tim Scott—he be maybe the bestest one of all—only serves blacks and whites sending money we recall

Next we’ll hear Haley PC knee-jerked and ripped down the flag of patriots WITHOUT giving cons a bat at the plate

Or that like gutless flag-ripping RINO Joe Wilson and his RINO AG son she’s a shoo-in for a VP slot…NO…WAIT !!!
