Rapper Earl "DMX" Simmons was arrested in Greer, South Carolina, during a routine traffic stop. Mr. Simmons was the passenger in a Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by his assistant that was stopped for an alleged illegal lane change. Police claim to have seen marijuana in the passenger side door. As a result, the rapper could end up facing drug charges.
Understandably, marijuana is a divisive topic in today's media. The legalization of the drug is an ongoing debate, in politics and the public. However, it is still illegal in South Carolina. Anyone can face with drug charges for any type of direct association with the drug. Unfortunately, several individuals were recently arrested in relation to what authorities say were significant amounts of the contraband.
With the many positive uses the widespread use of the Internet has created, there are also many negative uses. For example, there are many ways that persons can interact online to commit crimes having to do with an illegal exchange of goods. Internet crimes involving children are a particularly sensitive and very serious problem. This is why South Carolina's Attorney General is requesting more power to the state to combat child prostitution and sex trafficking over the Internet.
South Carolina has car accidents every day, in all parts of the state. The public typically wants a reason for the accident, whether it is texting, drunk driving or some other form of negligence. It seems that an accident is rarely simply characterized as a mistake. Unfortunately, a driver is now being accused of drinking and driving after he is said to have caused an accident in South Carolina.
