Prosecutorial Misconduct Allegations, Murder Investigation, Political Update – Week In Review 9/30/2023

News and notes …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

There was no shortage of material to cover on this week’s edition of our Week In Review. Our show kicked off with some troubling allegations against one of the top prosecutors from convicted killer Alex Murdaugh’s double homicide trial in Walterboro, South Carolina earlier this year.

Stay tuned as we dig deeper into the allegations against assistant attorney general Johnny Meadors, who became a household name in Palmetto State legal circles after delivering the prosecution’s emotional rebuttal to Murdaugh attorney Jim Griffin‘s closing argument.

This week’s show also featured research director Jenn Wood and special projects director Dylan Nolan updating our audience on their recent visit to a remote corner of the South Carolina Lowcountry – part of our ongoing “Death on the Tracks” investigation into the unsolved murder of Daniel Reed “DJ” Smith of Dorchester County, S.C.

Dylan and I closed things out by breaking down the state of national politics in the context of the latest “Republican” presidential debate … along with an update on the sex scandal enveloping U.S. congressman Jeff Duncan of Greenville, S.C.

How are things unfolding so far for Duncan? Not especially well … although infinitely better than things unfolded for fellow South Carolina congressman William Timmons when he ass-backed his way into a saga that continues to play out more than a year after it broke.

Once again, thanks to everyone for tuning in to another edition of our show. Your support is essential as it enables everything we do here at FITSNews. If you want to help us as we continue to hold those in power accountable, please consider subscribing today.

Here is something not mentioned in this week’s review: the Honorable Judge Bentley Douglas Price while on the way up to Columbia in a vehicle with SC issued “Judge” tags in order to plead for a qualified designation before the SC Bar so he could run for “reelection” on Thursday was also moving away from the fact he let Ernest Robert Burbage, III out of jail by sentencing him to time served on a weapons violation charge. Who is this Mr. Burbage, a man with a lengthy criminal history and likely suffering from mental health issues. On Thursday, Johns Island was on lock down due to a 30 hour manhunt in which Mr. Burbage who was indiscriminately shooting at people including a police officer who was shot in the head along with a passenger in a vehicle and killed a police dog. School was cancelled and a stand off ended with Mr. Burbage being permanently stopped. This was truly a tragic situation. Hopefully, the SC Bar will have the courage to do the right thing which is to designate Judge Bentley Douglas Price as unqualified to run for “re-election” because two wrongs never make a situation right.

Mary Contrary, thanks for the kind words of agreement. The SC Bar qualification recommendations for Judge Bentley Douglas Price and his only challenger are to be submitted to the Judicial Merit Selection Commission by this Friday, October 6th. If the challenger is deemed not qualified and Judge Price is deemed qualified (I can not fathom how they could deem him qualified even if only a fraction of the news stories are true) then he will get six more years on the bench due to his political connections. I do not think the Judicial Merit Selection Commission is above playing politics but “as I live I hope” the SC Bar is better than that. People like Alex Murdaugh are either made or enabled by the likes of folks like Judge Price who has proven to be a junior varsity version of the likes of Judge Carmen Mullin.

I think the exact quote is “As I breathe I hope”

I should stick to Latin to have avoided botching the quote going forward “Dum Spiro Spero”.
