SC Lede: Criminal Edition

Gavin Jackson
Thousands of protesters turn up at the South Carolina Statehouse on May 30, 2020 to protest the death of George Floyd. The protest was one of hundreds around the country and the world last year as the death of Floyd amplified racial inequities and the need for criminal justice reforms.

On this edition of the South Carolina Lede for May 25, 2021, we discuss the slew of crime news in the state over the past week, including the capture of a wanted fugitive and a mass shooting in North Charleston. Also in this episode: a look at the status of police reform legislation a year after the death of George Floyd; Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) and USDA Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack share information about a new program to help minority farmers; and much more.

We want to hear from you! Leave us a 1-minute long voicemail at 803-563-7169 to tell us what your life has been like over the past year.
