Holiday Bombshell: Son Of Colleton County Clerk Of Court Arrested

‘Felonious’ wiretapping and ‘misuse’ of power …

As millions of Americans prepare their tables for Thanksgiving, one seat within Colleton County, South Carolina could go unoccupied due to an ongoing criminal investigation by the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED). 

On Tuesday — November 21, 2023 — Jeffrey “Colt” Hill was arrested by deputies of the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) on one singular count of wiretapping. At 4:28 p.m. EST, the 34-year-old was booked into the Colleton County detention center, according to detainee records.

“The defendant did willfully and feloniously intercept electronic phone communication,” according to Jeffrey’s arrest warrant. “[He] was employed as the Colleton County information technology director and misused his position to unlawfully intercept, and listen to conversations …”

As FITSNews previously reported, SLED was requested by the office of S.C. fourteenth circuit solicitor Duffie Stone to investigate allegations of eavesdropping from within the county administration’s technology department.

The focus of that investigation? Jeffrey, who was listed as the county’s technology director before being erased from the online staff directory on Nov. 22, 2023.

If you recognize his last name from our sweeping and ongoing coverage of the ‘Murdaugh Murders’ crime and corruption saga — it’s likely because his mother is none other than Becky Hill, clerk of court for Colleton County. 

Becky oversaw the six-week double murder trial of disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh — and was the very woman who announced his guilty verdicts to the world on March 2, 2023.

Since publishing her memoir — Behind the Doors of Justice: The Murdaugh Murdersand appearing in a Netflix documentary concerning the trial, Becky has been accused of jury tampering by Murdaugh’s attorneys. The allegations, made public by Dick Harpootlian and Jim Griffin, were part of a bombshell motion for a new trial in September.

Becky has since refuted the accusations and retained the counsel of Justin Bamberg and Will Lewis. Bamberg — a fifth-term state representative — is known across the Palmetto State for representing multiple victims of Murdaugh’s admitted financial crimes.

Becky did not respond to our request for comment on the allegations against her son earlier this month.

According to sources familiar with the ongoing investigation, Jeffrey was accused of illegally recording a conversation involving Meagan Utsey — the deputy county administrator for Colleton County.

While it’s not immediately clear if Jeffrey’s arrest was related to Murdaugh — our sources confirmed that it did entangle his mother. Becky was reportedly forced to surrender her phone to SLED upon the issuance of a search warrant Tuesday evening.

As with anyone accused of committing a crime, Jeffrey is considered innocent until proven guilty by our criminal justice system – or until such time as he may wish to enter some form of allocution in connection with a plea agreement with prosecutors related to charges filed against him.

UPDATE | On Nov. 22, Jeffrey posted a $20,000 personal recognizance bond granted by Colleton County magistrate judge Roosevelt L. Jenkins.

Ever-bluffing Eric Bland (“EBEB”) violates rules of ethics right and left and no one does anything to him because he has, by his conspiracy with Becky “Boo” Hill and her family, terrified EVERYONE in South Carolina’s legal system.
The rest of the dupes in South Carolina who are outside the legal system dream of EBEB getting them UNDESERVED millions as he did for the Satterfield heirs; that is why they write so positively of him.
What neither EBEB nor his adoring dupes realize is that you can’t fool ALL the people ALL the time. And with SLED’s investigation EXONERATING Buster Murdaugh (on whom EBEB and his Sanctimonious Sandi Smith [“SSS”] tried to FALSELY pin Stephen Smith’s death) and now the felony charge against Becky “Boo” Hill’s son (of which he is, of course, presumed innocent for now), EBEB’s reign of terror shall, God willing, implode on him.
Just to repeat, Gloria Satterfield died in hospital of late effects of chronic diabetes for which no member of the Murdaugh family or defense team is responsible. Gloria’s heirs are entitled to NOTHING under the true cause of her death; Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) blackmailed or bribed some insurance companies into paying few millions for a fake claim about how Gloria died; and EBEB blackmailed or bribed AM’s old lawfirm into getting TWICE those millions for EBEB under an even more fake legal malpractice claim.
Frankly, EBEB is as bad, if not worse, than AM and his old law firm.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO VALID THEORY under which Gloria Satterfield’s heir can pretend they were robbed of anything to which they were not entitled in the first place.
We shall, God willing, see how all this ends.

PLEASE, stop the arrogance and cruelty to a grieving father and widower.
For those who do not already know it, I am as sure as anyone who was NOT actually there can be that Richard Alexander Murdaugh (“RAM”) did NOT kill his wife, Maggie (“MKBM”) or his younger son Paul (“PTM”). I am also increasingly convinced that the real two shooters were two women with SOME experience in firearms but no MILITARY experience in aiming at human beings. I shall, God willing, detail that later.
I was also INITIALLY impressed with RAM’s defense team and am still moved by their refusal to abandon their client because they are RIGHTLY convinced that RAM did NOT kill MKBM or PTM. But I am now convinced that despite Dick and Jim’s massive efforts to exonerate RAM of the murders, these lawyers were ineffective in the murder trial AND in the motion to reopen AND are ineffective EVEN IN the financial crimes case.
In The Presumption podcast, it was revealed (at least to me) that Dick was on steroids recovering from CoViD-19 during the trial and that Jim is a hopeless hypochondriac (meaning one with imaginary diseases) as happens with some immediate family who are not themselves MDs of real MDs.
I write that because it appears that no one other than Harvard Lawyer Lee and myself ACTUALLY read Becky Hill’s book IN ITS ENTIRETY.
Frankly, I don’t think even RAM’s defense team read that book in its entirety because it admits to things even RAM’s defense team did not cite in their motion for a new trial. And frankly, a truly zealous defense of RAM would seek, not a new trial, but outright dismissal WITH PREJUDICE of the two murder charges against RAM for prosecutorial, jury, and clerk-of-court misconduct.
Linking that to Becky “Boo” Hill’s Book and family; did any one notice that, not only did “Becky Boo” fly expense-free to New York with three guilty-voting jurors, she took her daugher with her as her “plus one.” “Becky Boo” even has the TOTAL SHAMELESSNESS of publishing the photo of her daugher Aubrey schmoozing with “country music star Dustin Lynch … in NBC’s The Today Show green room.” Page 191.
So, it is plausible that the jury-tampering racket was a Hill family business to the profit of the whole Hill family.
More specifically to the plausibility of Jeffrey Colton Hill having spied on RAM’s defense team DURING the two-murder trial, “Becky Boo” claims on page xix of her book “Word is from someone on the defense team that Alex had been practicing […] for weeks.”
“Practicing” what?
What Becky pretends is what the juror with the borrowed coat-and-tie told TV shows the next day: Alex was only producing snot, not really crying.
THAT IS MEDICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
The tears from the eyes overflow laterally on the cheeks AND MEDIALLY through a tiny canal that empties in the nose.
So, it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce snot “on demand” without really crying.
Unless one has a cold or some other respiratory infection, “snot” can only come from tears overflowing MEDIALLY from the eyes through the canals to the nose.
That is one of the strongest proofs of jury tampering; and it is given by Becky Hill herself and the borrowed-coat-and-tie juror himself.

I have seen some Crime and Cask shors on YouTube; and frankly, he repeats a lot of the ideas I have posted on YouTube myself.
I have no issue with his repeating my ideas; but I have a big issue with his accepting the Prosecution’s hallucination of the time of death of Paul and Maggie.
MEDICALLY, the time of death is closer to 10:00 pm than to 9:00 pm.
I had also posted and referenced Frame 371 of the Zapruder film.
For those who claim they WOULD HAVE done this or that if they had seen a loved one shot, we have what Jackie ACTUALLY DID within 1/8th of a second of JFK’s brains exploding into Jackie’s arms and on her pink suit.

I think this is an understatement. The accusation of 2 females as the actual murderers is beyond ridiculous. He is guilty of murdering his wife and son. His motive was the MB case in which he was going to be “found out” for all of his financial crimes and that if he got rid of the “problem”, the case would go away. No one to try, no one to convict, no one to sue that would require digging of financial records. He could not murder his son without murdering his wife too. He planned it, he saw it through. He had no blood on him on police video after saying he checked his son, none on his knees, none on his hands, none of his shoes, none of his clothes. He was clean and he was sweating. The motive is clearly there, if he gets acquitted like OJ, it doesn’t mean he is innocent of the crime, it’s just a lack of evidence. Period.

SubZeroIQ November 28, 2023 at 11:31 am

There is a world of difference between O.J., a wrongly-acquitted man who slaughtered his divorced wife, and Alex Murdaugh (“AM”), a man wrongly-convicted of the murder of his adored loyal wife. The one thing in common is that juries can get it wrong in either direction.
The CORRECT understanding of the REAL data exonerates AM of the murders.
And I want to analyze them for you here in case you have not read my analysis elsewhere.
And I shall do that under both the State’s time-of-death theory and my MEDICAL time-of-death theory.
The Prosecution insists people die when the batteries on their cell phones do. Accepting that JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT, there is no question that AM arrived at his mother’s around 9:30 pm. How long he stayed there provides him no alibi whatsoever if the murders occurred BEFORE 9:00 pm.
ALSO, had AM been the real killer, he would spent the night at his parents’ home and let the bodies be discovered by Moselle workers in the morning.
Everyone knows that the first suspicions center around the person who finds the bodies. AM would surely have known that.
AND, that particular night, an extra bed was vacant and available in AM’s parents’ house: AM’s father was in hospital; and the father’s normal bed was vacant and available. AM would have had a VERY VALID excuse to spend the night at his parents’ house: to comfort his agitated mother in her husband’s absence.
So, had AM been the real killer; and had the murders REALLY occurred before 9:00 pm, AM would have known and would have stayed with his mother all night and left the bodies to be discovered the next morning by Moselle workers.
NOW, under the MEDICAL theory of the time of death, which is between 9:30 pm and 9:50 pm because the victims had dinner AFTER 8:00 pm little of which remained in their stomachs at autopsy and would not have been mostly emptied as early 8:50 pm, it is clear that AM was either at his parents’ home or returning from it at that time.
So, either way AM has an iron-clad alibi.
The easy answers to the too-stupid-to-mention “sympathy” “motive” are: (1) AM already had more than enough sympathy from the impeding death of his terminal father who did die two days after the murders; and (2) if JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT, another dead family member was needed, would not JUST ONE have been enough. AM could have just killed Maggie or Paul; no need to kill BOTH. He also could have killed “the chosen one” by slipping them an over-dose of opioids.
I have shown respect for you with this serious analysis. Please do not repay my respect with insults.

SubZeroIQ December 8, 2023 at 12:21 pm

What have I done to YOU for you to be so cruel to ME?
Still, it is Christmas, not Easter, season; but the best response to your cruelty to me comes from quoting John 18:22-24:
22When Jesus had said this, one of the officers standing nearby slapped Him in the face and said, “Is this how You answer the high priest?” 23Jesus replied, “If I said something wrong, testify as to what was wrong. But if I spoke correctly, why did you strike Me?” 24Then Annas sent Him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest .…
Just so you know, in case you have not read it elsewhere, I PERSONALLY know the VERY PEOPLE who railroaded Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) into two wrongful murder convictions because their friends (or payors) wanted AM’s Moselle because those people are obsessed with shooting beautiful living deer for the trophy of their horns and no trophy is ever enough for them.
I respect natural, reasonable, ecology-respecting hunting for food (though I never did it); but trophy-hunting and catch-and-release I loathe.
I know those people, Hatchet-for-Hire Heather, David Fernandez, Johnny James, John Meadors, and Donald Zelenka, and their assistants and collaborators because they tried, and are still trying, to bring false criminal charges against me to wrest from me a sliver of vacant land my mother and I unsuspectingly bought in March 2009 to build on it a completely solar house for ourselves. We bought it not knowing that the City of Columbia and the adjacent property owner had run illegally and surreptitiously run their sewer lines across and underneath that lot making it unbuildable.
When I sued for them to re-route the sewer lines away from my land (very feasible at minimal cost to them), they anawered by getting me falsely arrested and made homeless at Christmas time and at risk of homelessness ever since.
I wish the people who TRIED but, thank God, failed to railroad ME into two “harassment-in-the-first-degree” wrongful convictions with an evil plan to get me sentenced to 36 years, YES, THIRTY-SIX, by non other than Judge Clifton Newman would reimburse me and my family for our costs in exposing my evil prosecutors’/persecutors’ perjury, subornation of perjury, forgeries and fabrications against me.
Your insulting what I write as “drivel” will not change the facts that I have transcripts of my own cases AND I have page citations from Becky Hill’s books. Nothing can change that.

BTW, I, too, was once fooled by the false legend Ever-Bluffing Eric Bland (“EBEB”) built around himself until I saw what he does when the light is not shining on him.
In that Satterfield case, EBEB lies in court papers and got millions by blackmailing Alex Murdaugh’s (“AM”) old lawfirm.
The Satterfield heirs are truly entitled to NOTHING because Gloria Herriott Satterfield (“GHS”) died in hospitial of diabetes-associated myocardical infarction 24 days after having COINCIDENTALLY fallen in Moselle.
AM did lie but ONLY to the insurance company and pretend the fall was due to AM’s dogs tripping GHS and AM also pretended GHS was not at Moselle to work because that would limit any claim to workman’s comp.
EBEB and GHS are mad at AM, NOT because he lied and cheated the insurance companies, BUT ONLY because AM did not share the ill-begotten loot with GHS’s heirs and EBEB.
Frankly, the fact that EBEB and GHS’s heirs got millions from AM’s old firm makes them worse thieves and criminals than AM ever was.
The real victims are the rest of us insurance customers whose premiums rise because people like EBEB and GHS’s heirs collect millions on fake claims. The small solo lawyers HONEST law firms are also victims because THEIR legal malpractice insurance premiums also rise after EBEB and his ilk blackmail the large lawfirms into paying huge sums to undeserving people under threat of bringing criminal charges against them.
EBEB is NOT at all well regarged by the legal community in South Carolina. All he did is buy a couple of non-lawyer female pod-casters, specifically Mandy Matney and Kassidy O’Connell and feed them his lies for them to amplify with their voice fry.
Sandi Smith’s son was NOT killed because he was gay; nor did EBEB really represent Sandi pro bono. They collected over $100K on a go-fund-me page pretending it will be used for a second autopsy and to hire an investigator. But the second autopsy was done at state expense and the hired investigator admitted on Court TV he did not even look at the photos of the crime scene. The second autopsy confirmed what the first autopsy had determined: the death was due to motor vehicle versus pedestrian.
But neither Sandi nor EBEB had any integrity to apologize to Buster Murdaugh, on whom they had tried so hard to pin Stephen Smith’s death, or to Dr. Erin Presnell, whose professional reputation Sandi and EBEB destroyed after Dr. Presnell CORRECTLY diagnosed the cause of death in the first autopsy.
If any defamation law suit is to be filed, it should be by Buster Murdaugh and/or Dr. Presnell against Sandi Smith and EBEB. But maybe those truly deserving victims of defamation are afraid to sue EBEB or Sandi Smith because they are afraid EBEB will pin false criminal charges on them as he pinned false murder charges on AM to induce him to settle the Satterfield case.
That is the true strory proven by actual court papers no one wants to bother to look at as carefully as I did.

If Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) is fount not guilty of the murders, whether by new trial or by dismissal of the charges under a double jeopardy theory, the two life sentences go away.
I am NOT a lawyer; but as far as I understand the FEDERAL plea agreement is that the federal sentence (still to be issued) is concurrent with the state sentence, meaning unless the federal sentence is longer than 27 years (which I doubt because federal sentencing has guidelines and USUALLY is not affected by crocodile tears), once AM finishes serving the state sentence, he may be released.
In my opinion free from false humility, I think Judge Clifton Newman should reject the plea agreement and compare AM to Robert Jerome Breibart, whose financal crimes are much worse than AM’s and with Mark Schnee who betrayed many more clients than AM did.
I am not excusing what AM did; I am only asking for proportionality.
And I think NOTHING related to the Satterfield case should enter into sentencing.
For the nth time, Gloria Herriott Satterfield (“GHS”) did NOT die in Moselle NOT was her fall at Moselle the cause of her death IN HOSPITAL 24 days later.
GHS died IN HOSPITAL of myocardial infarction MOST LIKELY resulting from her chronic diabetes, for which NO MEMBER OF THE MURDAUGH FAMILY can possibly be responsible.
GHS’s heirs are entiled to NOTHING more than the hundreds of thousands of people who die every year as a result of poorly-managed diabetes.
Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) did lie and steal BUT ONLY FROM HIS OWN INSURANCE COMPANIES by presenting fake claims. GHS’s have no possible honest claim to be AM’s victims.

Reply
SubZeroIQ November 26, 2023 at 2:36 am

I posted this on FITSNews’ Week in Review and think it is worth pasting here, too, concerning AM’s sentences:
First, I have no reason to believe anything Ever-Bluffing Eric Bland (“EBEB”) says, for at least five reasons:
Reason one: EBEB is CONSTANTLY violating Rule 3.5 of the rules of professional conduct for lawyers which bars a lawyer from initiating, or participating in, criminal or punitive administrative proceeding to gain advantage in civil litigation. EBEB and Mendatious Tiger Mark Tinsley (“MTMT”) have been unabashedly driving ALL criminal proceedings against Alex Murdaugh (“AM”). I am NOT a lawyer; but in my opinion free from false humility, that alone is enough to, not give AM a new trial, but dismiss the murder charges outright because the State has no right to endless bites at the proverbial apple. The State had one chance to prosecute AM cleanly and fairly but royally messed it up.
Reason two: I go by objective evidence. I saw public court documents where EBEB wrote that Gloria Harriott Satterfield (“GHS”) died at Moselle due to a fall from the stairs there. According to OBJECTIVE MEDICAL RECORDS, GHS died in hospital OF MYCARDIAL INFARCTION 24 days after falling at Moselle. GHS had, among other conditions, chronic, and apparently poorly managed, diabetes. That is a MUCH MORE LIKELY cause for a coronary than a fall down seven steps 24 days earlier.
Reason three: EBEB has no respect for human life or for the Catholic Church which teaches its human life’s worth and dignity. EBEB published a photo of his “friend” and client Gregg Leon apparently praying to a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Christ (“BVMMOC”) one day either before or after Gregg Leon committed suicide. The Catholic Church teaches that suicide is a mortal sin and would not administer last rites to a suicidant.
Reason four: I have personal knowledge of how EBEB, who pretends to be in it for charity and the public good, acts in non-publicity cases. There, he is the OPPOSITE of charitable.
Second, according to the FEDERAL plea agreement, any federal sentence is concurrent with the state sentence. So, unless the federal sentence is longer than 20 years (which I doubt it could be because federal sentences have detailed guide lines and are usually not influenced by crocodile tears), whatever AM serves in state prison will satisfy the federal sentence.
Third, I read Becky “Boo” Hill’s book in its entirety; and what she wrote in it is even worse than what AM’s defense team put in their motion.
Fourth, EBEB’s behavior and media statements in his representation of Sanctimonious Sandi Smith (“SSS”) is even worse than EBEB’s behavior in the GHS and Gregg Leon cases.
So, PLEASE forget anything EBEB says and go to the actual records.
Peace and God bless.

And this is another comment I posted on Will and Jen Wood’s Week-in-Review after they peeved me with “the worst of us” cliche:
Why do you keep calling Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) “the worst of us”? All that is OBJECTIVELY proven he did is some insurance fraud which the insurance companies themselves could have prevented it they had done their due deligence.
If it turns out that two other women killed Paul and Maggie, AM would be one of the most victimized “of us” having had his wife and younger son murdered then being put through a six-week trial where he was bombarded with the horrible memories of their death.
“Of us” AM is the most reformed. He went from however many pills a day to being sober and clean for (he counts) the days. If he looks “happy” in prison, it is MOST PROBABLY because he may fear that, if and when released, he may be tempted to re-use.
A trial, first or new, is a search for the truth. Does any of you think we got the whole truth about what happened to Paul and Maggie?
For crying outloud, it was based on magical thinking. John Meadors ACTUALLY SAID on WLTX-19 that Bubba showed his love for Maggie.
Think about that for minute, remembering that Bubba is a dog which wags its tail for you when you feed it but bites you if you don’t.
So, Bubba is supposed to be Einstein who, as a dog mind you, knew that Paul was going to take a cell phone video of ANOTHER dog and that, within the hour Paul and Maggie were to be shot, instead of staying around to bite the shooter, goes out and catches a chicken or ginea?
Really?
And people are actually saying God used that dog. Well, why would their dog-using God not have Bubba stay and bite the shooter instead of that grand-production number?
Is that what this world is coming to?
Is it any wonder that American children cannot do math or actually write good English?

This is still one more of my gems on FITSNews’ Week in Review that deserves to be posted here, too.
Again, it you can’t handle that level of thinking, just don’t read it. That simple!
? A new trial will be meaningless if all the potential jurors have been exposed to this ADDED pre-trial publicity that the first verdict was correct but the retrial is just for show.
In my opinion free from false humility, Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) should be granted, not a new trial, but dismissal WITH PREJUDICE of the murder and weapon use charges against him because the State INTENTIONALLY botched the first trial.
The State, through its various actors, failed at every stage, starting with the CRITICAL determination of the EXACT time of death. Where alibi is, or expected to be, THE defense of THE ususal suspects, the EXACT time of death should be determined WITH ALL THE ACCURACY AVAILABLE TO MODERN SCIENCE at the initial investigation. Instead, the State sent a coroner without a thermometer.
Then the State send AM to be tried in court where the clerk believed herself to be endowed with magical powers she calls “a woman’s intuition” and by a prosecutor who believes a dog is endowed by magical powers to know what a cell phone video is and to predict that Paul Murdaugh would be making one of ANOTHER dog’s tail. For that reason, that magical Maggie-Murdaugh-loving and all-knowing dog catches a chicken or a guinea and comes into the kennels with it to supposedly catch AM in a lie about being at the kennels.
Yet, curiously, that super-human “prophet” dog does NOT stay behing the few more minutes (according to the Prosecution’s time of shooting) to scare the shooter away or bite him or her or them off Maggie an Paul.
Why, that dog with super-natural powers could have commandeered the eight or so other dogs in the kennels to bark and bite AM off the kennels and off Moselle altogether if that magical dog knew AM was about to shoot Paul and Maggie.
That stupid theory, added to the even more stupid theory that AM’s motive was to gain sympathy (of which he already had plenty from to his father’s impending death) is ALL the Prosecution had in the first trial and ALL it can have in a new trial. Sadly, that county is full of magic-believing jurors; and a new trial would take South Carolina back to the Middle Ages where guilt or innocence was determined by dunking the suspect in a pool of water and seeing if he sinks or floats.
Interestingly, even back then, it was possible to rig that magical test by surreptitiously, and for a bribe, add salt to the water making it more or less likely for the suspect to sink or float.
If South Carolina cannot mount a clean 21st Century murder trial according to the U.S. Constitution, it has no business mounting criminal trials at all.

Since many people (including jurors and Jumpsuit Pablo) seem fixated on Alex Murdaugh’s (“AM”) snot; and on its coming only from one side of his nose; and on AM eating his OWN snot (during the sentencing hearing) instead of wiping it off, even with his hand in shackles; and since I am a proud non-subscriber, I might as well comment on one of my five free articles I used this month.
This is what happens when people with no medical education whatsover play doctor because they have had crime experience or prison experience or whatever.
Of the paired organs of senses, both eyes need to be functioning TOGETHER all the wking time for depth perception; and both ears need to be functioning TOGETHER all the time for balance (the ears are for BOTH sound and balance) and for sound direction.
But BOTH nostrils do NOT need to function TOGETHER all the time. That is why the nasal septum is NORMALLY a little deviated AND one nostril is usually swollen shut at any one time.
Why is that?
The nostrils have both intake and discharge functions. The intake function is not only for smell but to filter and warm the air coming into the lungs. So, the nostrils/nasal canals ALTERNATE being open/swollen shut to allow the minute items filtered out on one side to drain out by gravity while the other side does the intake and warming until the cold incoming air reaches temperature equilibrium with the inner lining of the open nostril, which continues to have the capillaries dilated for warmth until the dilation shuts that nostril out. Then, the other nostril, now clean, opens and strarts capillary dilation for warmth; and so forth.
These cycles are of such short duration that there is AN ILLUSION of both nostrils functioning together all the time. And that why Jumpsuit Pablo noticed it only by stopping the frame.
As to swallowing one’s OWN snot; it is no different than swallowing one’s OWN saliva, which happens all the time. Both are rich with immune polypeptides and the body does not usually recognize them as foreign antigens because they are not. Of course, swallowing OTHERS’ immune polypeptides is another story.
Capice?

Just in case you haven’t read my most recent thoughts elsewhere, Alex Murdaugh’s (“AM”) so-called “victims” and many podcasters and journalists are ignorant hypocrites.
And you Annie are throwing away the BASICS of journalism.
First, ABC 4’s Annie Emmerson, AM DID SAY he was sorry his financial actions caused SLED to not go after “the person or people” who killed Paul and Maggie. So, what is your interpretation of his NOT saying more? That AM was happy his wife and younger son got killed, only unhappy that SLED did not look for the real murderers?
AM expressed his sorrow to all who loved Paul and Maggie because they were the living ones.
And AM showed his real fatherly affection by taking this ONLY OCCASION to give moral support to Buster, who continues to be UNFAIRLY, BASELESSLY and FALSELY blamed for Stephen Smith’s death.
I thought it showed real nobility of AM to care about Buster, who was not even in the room, AND to encourage other addicts to seek treatment and rehabilitation as early as possible.
Why is that bad or wrong?
You, Charlie Condon, called it “info-mercial” for a particular facility!!! How clever and cold of you!!! If you had a son who is addicted, wouldn’t you want to know what facilities are the best? Heck! Aren’t there many websites dedicated to patients evaluating medical providers of every specialty?
Now, for you Charlie Condon, as an attorney general: you fostered and PROMOTED the system of farming out the Attorney General’s work to private lawyers who inflated their fees and fleeced the “faceless” tax-payers. Did you do anything to monitor or correct those thefts? No.
Worse yet, those private lawyers, who turned around and contributed to your political campaigns with the money they stole from the tax-payers had REAL individual victims.
I had document proog that one such private lawyer knew I was right, that the University of South Carolina (“USC”) had WRONGLY fired me the first time, that a panel from USC itself had ruled that I had been wrongly terminated and must be reinstated. That private lawyer wrote to USC to fire me AGAIN and let her defend USC at tax-payers’ expense if and when I sue USC.
I brought you the papers which left no dout. What did you do? You told me to get out. You did not even look at them.
You are WORSE than AM.
Then there is that Jim Jordan (“JJ”), who tearfully pretended he would have given AM the money had AM asked for it. Well, let’s test that! AM is now penniless but JJ received all the money from other sources “and then some,” according to Eric Bland and Justin Bamberg.
Did JJ send his beloved friend AM any canteen money? Did JJ even comfort Buster in his embattled state? Did JJ go and put flowers on Maggie’s grave? NO, no, no. It was all an act choreographed by the lawyers to extort more money from the law firms and the insurance companies.
Gloria Satterfield died IN HOSPITAL of natural causes 24 days after COINCIDENTALLY having fallen at Moselle. Her heirs had NOTHING stolen from them because they were entitled to NOTHING for the myocardial infarction of an overweight 50-something woman with chronic, poorly-managed diabetes.
Who is paying YOU three to abandon common sense and all journalistic integrity?

For those who claim I am someone other than my wonderful self, Dyllon met me in person; and I even have my photo attached to my nom de plume.
None of Dick, Jim, Duffie Stome, or Alex is that beautiful or that smart.
And none of them is a medical doctor.
Jim’s late father was a doctor; but Jim was either not smart enough or not hard-working enough to go to medical school himself. Being a medical doctor’s son made Jim a hypochondriac, not a medical doctor.
And most significantly, neither Dick nor Jim has PERSONALLY experienced being falsely accused for others to gain unfair advantages in civil ligation.
If anything, I think Dick’s and Jim’s sins of omission from when they were themselves prosecutors have come back to bite them in a case for which they care much.
The jury system and the verdict forms in criminal cases in South Carolina have not evolved in centuries.
Can you imagine if Medicine and Surgery were practiced today as they were in, say, 1856?
Yet, Jim chose his closing argument to tell the jury that there should be three options: Guilty, NOT proven, and NOT guilty, instead of just Guilty or Not Guilty.
Where was that idea when Dick and/or Jim were themselves prosecutors?
They never tried to advance the law because the law as it is favors prosecutors, lazy prosecutors at that.
While you put me on my soap box about lazy prosecutors, let me declaim the “hand of one is the hand of all” so called “principle” or “rule.”
Do you know how and why this came about?
Because lazy prosecutors did not want to bother to figure out who, for example, is the actual shooter if two or more people other than the victim were present at the scene.
Lazy prosecutors were afraid each suspect present would point the finger at one of the others as the actual shooter; and the confused jury would acquit everyone.
The result often is that a bystander gets the death penalty while the real shooter gets acquitted or gets a lighter sentence.
So, prosecutors who were too lazy or too dumb to advance the law when they were prosecutors face the results of their omissions when they become criminal defence lawyers, as most prosecutors who do not retire or die on the job do.
What more do you want to know that I am neither Dick nor Jim but only appreciate their devotion to their innocent, wrongly-convicted client?

I will go there because no one wants to. And, as usual, I get vindicated, this time sooner rather than later because Jim Jordan admitted on Ashley Banfield that he never spoke to Buster since the latter lost his mother and brother, apparently, not even to offer condolences.
This question is NOT to Alex Murdaugh (“AM”) but to that Jim Jordan (“JJ”), who claims AM was the brother JJ never had: Are $150K worth turning your back on “the brother [you] never had” AND on his son? Specially in their worst hours?
If you, JJ, did not believe AM killed Paul or Maggie, did you ever see it from AM’s side? A widower who also lost his younger son and is being falsely accused of the murders of both?
If you, JJ, were a true friend, you would have thought of Buster, at the very least.
Even as a client, no other lawyer could have, or would have, gotten for you what AM got for you money-wise, even minus the $150K AM supposedly stole from you.
You, JJ, seem very healthy and strong; and I have no way of getting the actual records of your case; but my guess is that your injury (whatever it was) was not serious enough for the money AM got for you, even minus those $150k.
Were those $150K (which you pretend you would have given AM had he asked) worth your dehumanizing him, pointing the finger at him, and insulting him with “what kind of animal are you?”?
Frankly, JJ, if I were inclined to call money-greedy people animals (which I am not), I would have wondered which of the two of you is the worse animal.
