I was born and raised in Charleston. In all my 60 years I have never seen anything like the recent gunning down of one of our citizens by a North Charleston police officer.

I have a word to say about all of the outsiders that are coming down here like a bunch of conquistadors to sanctify and enlighten us unwashed Southerners about this terrible event.

The cop was from New Jersey.
