South Carolina Solicitors Press For Judicial Reform At Lexington GOP Meeting

Prosecutors push for an independent judiciary …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Earlier this month, I was invited to record a judicial reform presentation given to the Lexington County GOP by South Carolina solicitors Kevin Brackett (16th judicial circuit), David Pascoe (1st judicial circuit) and Rick Hubbard (11th judicial circuit). As a part of FITSNews’ ongoing effort to inform South Carolinians about this issue, I recorded the event and have published the presentation in its entirety.

While Pascoe and Bracket have been front and center in the push for judicial selection reform – including their recent testimony in front of a House panel tasked with generating a judicial reform bill – Hubbard has largely stayed silent at the numerous pro-reform events FITSNews has seen him attend.

In his own community, though, Hubbard spoke up – sharing how infamous lawyer-legislator Todd Rutherford leveraged his legislative privilege to keep the notorious ‘Cook Out Killer‘ on the streets for an inordinately long period of time.

To those who heard Pascoe and Brackett’s previous testimony, some of this material will be familiar, but I’d encourage anyone looking to familiarize themselves with this issue to listen to the whole presentation.

With the S.C. General Assembly back in session, count on FITSNews to continue our coverage of judicial reform efforts in the Palmetto State …

Wow. I knew that South Carolina’s incestuous lawyer/legislator/judicial injustice system was bad, but this is B.A.D. Every voter in the state needs an education, if nothing more than watching this video, to understand the depth and breadth of a system that is so sick, so dysfunctional, so unbelievable, so UNjust.

Just removing lawyer/legislators from selecting judges doesn’t go far enough. The current method of selecting judges must be completely abolished. Judges must be elected by the people. Attorneys who use the law for a living/power/status/privilege/special treatment are MAKING the laws, controlling the law, controlling judges, controlling the courts.

Criminals escape the justice and their victimes are just road kill. Hey, who cares, right?

Please watch the entire video . . . and then watch it again. Take notes and do a little research. Talk to everyone you know with the facts, pressure your legislators, and then vote every lawyer/legislator out of office.

It’s ordinary South Carolinians who will solve this disgusting and flawed system.

Great piece, Dylan.
