I should not have to explain the title, but let me give it a sentence. A killing isn’t necessarily a murder. Got it?
Here’s a murder, and apparently, Seneca Police Lt. Mark Tiller has a big enough license to murder as to make James Bond blush. Don’t recall seeing him killing young adolescents in any of the films. He only had a license to kill, just like you. The license to murder has been summarily granted by SC 10th Judicial Circuit Solicitor, Chrissy Adams, pending Fed stuff.
Here’s the murder of Zachary Hammond. His date, Tori Morton, was in the car and certainly far from being out of harm’s way. Apparently, this was some “sting” over buying a few grams of a dried plant(s). Maybe one had been refined into a white powder form, like sugar and flour.
So, there you just saw a 19-yr-old kid getting murdered for the crime of selling C. sativa, a wild growing plant and getting scared and trying to flee when caught ‘red handed.’ It should be clear to even any casual viewer that the kid was just scared and trying to run, not trying to harm his eventual murderer, Police Lt. Mark Tiller. I haven’t looked in detail, but the cop probably said what they all say: I feared for my life.
Judge for yourself if his life—and not his reputation or pride—was in any danger. Lots more details here.
For my money, Solicitor Chrissy Adams is the greater criminal in this case. For guys like Mark Tiller, this a once in a lifetime opportunity to show he means business and is He-Man. Chrissy Adams is the source of the problem. Just read the first few paragraphs of page 2, after an entire page 1 of complete irrelevancies to the crime of murder that you can actually see with your own eyes.
Chrissy Adams has made herself an accessory to murder. Legally, no, as she is the law, in this case. But humans are beings of moral conscience and at a point, something’s gotta give (see history: U. S. founding). Do note that Ms. Adams’ only job was to see if the act of Tiller’s clear murder of Hammond warranted charges being filed. Not completely sure of their procedure, but generically, a DA would have had to decide to file and pursue a prosecution, and ultimately, Tiller would have had to be judged by 12 South Carolina citizens in what’s called a jury.
So perhaps that’s the problem here, and perhaps is what particularly makes Adams not only an accessory to murder, but a treasonous conspirator in violation of her oath of office.
I think it’s pretty clear that even the dumbest jury on Earth could have been at least a coin-toss from sending Tiller to jail for a long while at least.
Can’t have that.
…I do note this has received no major media coverage I’m aware of. It’s a white kid, and national coverage for months only goes for certain black kids if it’s the right kind of perpetrator, and any blond white girl on the planet anywhere, under any circumstances whatsoever. White boys and black girls are shit out of luck.
