Also notice that the Aryan Brotherhood member is pretty tight with some Black inmates. Criminality is thicker than blood among these thugs and the racism prison gangs display is purely about power and control, not any deep seated political beliefs. Here’s what your tax dollars are paying for:
I’ve heard of thieves targeting waste oils from restaurants due to the boom in bio-diesel, but until now I was unaware of the market for waste motor oil. The recycling centers you take your old motor oil to store it and sell it later to people who in turn sell it to companies that refine the waste product and turn it into boat fuel, lubricants and fuel for furnaces and boilers. The temptation to cut down on overhead by stealing the oil from the recycling sites rather than buying it overwhelmed two local oilmen and now those outlaws are cooling their heels in a North Carolina jail:
BURLINGTON, N.C. — Two South Carolina men have been charged with stealing motor oil from businesses in Alamance County.
Burlington police said they were investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle at the Sears Auto Center on Huffman Mill Road at about 11:55 p.m. on Sunday when they found two men using a tanker truck to siphon used motor oil from a large tank attached to the business.
The men told the officers that were working for M&M Waste Oil out of Greer, S.C., and had been contracted by Sears to pick up the oil, police said.
After checking with a manager at Sears, police said they determined that the men were actually stealing the oil.
Further investigation revealed that the men also stole oil from two other businesses on separate dates and attempted to do so at another business, police said.
Robert Charping, 50, of Greer, S.C., and Joshua Pittman, 23, of Taylors, S.C., were both charged with three counts of misdemeanor larceny and one count of attempted larceny.
They’re both probably out already since they got a $1500 bond. They’re fleeing a North Carolina lynch mob right now no doubt – run boys! You can use my hide out in Deadman’s Gultch!
M&M Waste Oil doesn’t have a website with an employee list that I’m aware of so who knows if the Charping and and Pittman really work there, but the company does have a Facebook page that a relative may frequent. Perhaps Robert Charping has a relative at the place and threw out their name to get out of trouble?
Maybe off topic but since I’m a good guy I’m just going to say that 50 is not the optimum age to start a career as an outlaw.
We aren’t the only state where police services are being limited by budget constraints and frankly a slower response time is better than no service at all.
Still, this is a problem:
South Carolina Public Safety Department director Mark Keel says people may notice a slowdown in trooper response time to highway incidents as continuing budget cuts are thinning the ranks.
Keel told The State of Columbia that there are 163 fewer troopers patrolling South Carolina’s rural highways and interstates than in 2008 and there is no money to replace them.
Some small rural counties may have to share a single trooper per shift and larger counties may have just three troopers patrolling the interstates and highways at night.
Last year, the average response time for the Highway Patrol was 30 minutes. Keel says he expects that will show an increase for this year and could get worse.
Like I said a problem, but one that has no easy solution. Raising taxes will only limit investment and no matter how business friendly our state is there’s only so much business that can be done in in this economy. Unless the economy as a whole picks up we’re all going to have to live with less service.
They’re doing such a bang up job I’m thinking of buying them their next round of donuts and coffee.
From the Times and Democrat:
Michael Wyatt Gentry, 52, of 190 Battlefield Drive was arrested Nov. 16 in a sting conducted by the City of Mauldin Police Department, according to the S.C. Attorney General’s Office. His bond was set at $40,000.
Arrest warrants allege that beginning April 6, 2010, Gentry solicited sex on the Internet from an individual he believed to be a minor girl. In reality, it was an undercover Mauldin Police officer.
The City of Mauldin Police Department is a member of the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Orangeburg Department of Public Safety, which are also task force members, assisted in the case.
It was the 200th arrest for the task force.
200 arrests! That’s what I’m talking about. The only thing that would make me happier with Mauldin is if they sent Chris Hanson and a camera crew to make the arrest.
I was saving my “sexy donut cop” image for the police department that really earned it. Well Mauldin – you’ve earned it. Enjoy.
