Nelson Hardwick, a conservative GOP politician, pleaded guilty on November 18 to third degree criminal sexual conduct.

However, he as given a slap on the wrist: a $300.00 fine.

Hardwick sexually assaulted a young pager who was employed by him via luring her to his office, according to indictment papers. He resigned in disgrace shortly thereafter.

North Charleston — Eight women were illegally charged, with seven illegally arrested, across the Coastal Region for engaging in sex work on Tuesday.

Five of the illegal arrests happened in the state’s third largest city.

Ms. McLaughlin, the only one of those who were legally arrested, is charged with possession of cocaine base.

Not to be outdone by North Charleston, the Morality Cops of Myrtle Beach made two illegal arrests of their own later that night on OCEAN BLVD.

Tonya Lynn Wedlock, 36 and Dawn Allyson Czaikowski, 33, were illegally arrested and illegally charged with engaging in sex work along the former SC 73.

SLED investigating Horry County Police Department

CONWAY — At long last, the gymnophobic Horry County Police Department is under the microscope.

However, they’re being investigated for sexual assault.

Hours before the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division announced the investigation of the department, a Georgetown woman filed a lawsuit against a deputy who is at the center of the crime.

According to the lawsuit, the victim claims a detective, who is not identified, raped her between 21 and 24 months ago. At least one of the rapes happened in a patrol car.

These “unwanted sexual advances” came after the HCPD deputy was assigned to the victim to investigate a civilian rape she reported to the department 25 months ago.

Some of the rapes were as frequent as bidaily.

A whistleblower told the victim that the deputy had done this to other women he was supposed to help in other cases.

The victim further claims the HCPD knew or at least should have known its deputy engaged in sexual assaults and rapes and claims they failed to take any action whatsoever.

Hope she gets this lawsuit to become class action status. This is revolting.

Woman staves off another woman in vicious attack

Woman with name ‘Killa’ charged with attempted murder in stabbing

MYRTLE BEACH — One woman was arrested and charged with stabbing another woman who defended herself from the vicious attack.

At 4:30 today, Myrtle Beach Police Office deputies were called to the scene of a fight between friends.  The victim told police that a woman known as an acquaintance came to visit, and during an argument, she forced her way inside the victim’s home, and during the struggle, stabbed her in the back with a small knife.

The victim defended herself with a replica sword until the attacker ran off, an Horry County Police Department deputy stated.

The victim identified the attacker by the street name “Killa” or “Killer.”

According to the report, the argument was over a man ID-ed as “Game”.  Police continue to investigate this incident.

The attacker will be charged with attempted murder once she is caught.

In Myrtle Beach, protesting unconstitutional ordinances infringing your God-given right to be nude nets you more jail time than domestic violence


MYRTLE BEACH — Horry County loves to call itself “family-friendly” and “moral”.

They even went as far as making it illegal to be naked inside your own home in the city in its 1993 ordinance that outlaws all forms of nudity, with the lone exception being for doctor offices.

However, here is something that you may not know.

Doing the work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King – refusing to abide by an unconstitutional nudity ban – nets you more jail time than if you were to abuse your spouse of the opposite gender.  The jail time punishment is 3 years for violating the unconstitutional ordinance, domestic violence is only 30 days.

And Anderson’s Rock Station, Classic Rock 101.1, tweeted that above.  The punishment for animal cruelty is 12 times the length of domestic violence.

Comes to show that there is nothing moral about what S.C. is doing to people.  I’d repeal all nudity bans in the state and make domestic violence punishable for a minimum of 30 years in prison for a first-offense conviction.


Six more ILLEGAL ARRESTS in Horry County, this time in North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — Looks like the out-of-control North Myrtle Beach Police Office has taken a page from their despicable brethren down US Route 17.

On Mother’s Day weekend, North Myrtle Beach police deputies illegally arrested six people and illegally charged all of them, and one more, with “public nudity”.

The seventh person was arrested for disorderly conduct, which makes that arrest legal.

Police observed the six law-abiding citizens and lone suspect disrobe to their underwear and run into the ocean.  Deputies identified themselves and had all of the citizens who did absolutely nothing wrong exit the water and then illegally ordered each one of the septet to re-clothe themselves.

The lone suspect was drunk.

This bring the total of illegal arrests along Coastal Horry County to 13, and the number of illegal charges to 14.

We will continue to expose Horry County’s atrocious war on the civil rights of nudists and naturists, no matter how much the government hates it.


#BlacklistMyrtleBeach: Un-American, gymnophobic Myrtle Beach cops start illegal arrests in 2014

Seven people illegally arrested by Myrtle Beach Police Office

MYRTLE BEACH — The gymnophobic cops of the Myrtle Beach Police Office are at it again with their illegal arrests and it is way past time we send the message by nationally blacklisting the entire city.

On Tuesday at 2:30, the MBPO illegally arrested and unlawfully imprisoned seven students who were having harmless fun on the beach.

The deputy that made the illegal arrest heard them diving into the Atlantic Ocean near NORTH 74th AVE.  As a courtesy, the students did get dressed at the presence of the deputy, although they did not have to under the federal laws that trump municipal law on nudity.

This is the kind of shit right here as to why I am issuing a call for action and protest, globally, against this gymnophobic Myrtle Beach city government.  No shopping there.  No stopping there, not even for gas.  We as American citizens need to take economic responsibility, take back our civil rights and financially cripple the City of Myrtle Beach until the bans on nudity are gone!

MYRTLE BEACH — A Wilmington man was arrested by the Horry County Police Department and charged with domestic violence by essentially pulling a Charles Saatchi.

According to the Horry County Police report, the man and his wife were arguing after she was caught “entertaining” another man. She said her husband told her recently that she needed to start making some money.

The man became upset because his wife did not tell him first, the report said.

That is when he tried to strangle his wife, leaving red scratches and marks on her neck and a bloody lip.

Erik Brandon Jenkins, 37, of Wilmington, was arrested by the Horry County Police Department and charged with criminal domestic violence. He was booked into the J. Rueben Long Detention Center in Conway.

De-fund rogue law enforcement agencies that arrest people for public nudity

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — Once again, the gymnophobic out-of-control Morality Cops of Horry County strike again.

On Monday, the latest in a string of illegal arrests in Horry County was of a 19-year-old man by the out-of-control, gymnophobic Morality Cops of North Myrtle Beach.

It should be noted that Jacob Gore was trespassing and being disorderly, but those two charges should have been the only ones filed here. By also charging him with public nudity, the Morality Police is violating the US Constitution, particularly the 9th, 13th and 14th amendment rights of nudists.

With our nation just cresting $16,000,000,000,000.00 in debt recently, people are asking where we could save money and pay down the debt.

Well, here’s one way to save taxpayer money and pay down the debt: DEFUND rogue law enforcement agencies that arrest people for public nudity. Zero out the funding for agencies like the Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach Police Departments, for starters.

Illegally arresting people for public nudity is the single biggest waste of our taxpayer dollars currently — yes, it is an even bigger waste of our money than the Iraq war, which most people would agree was wasted money.

How many people have a fully naked man with his penis stuck out killed at a shopping mall? In fact, when was the last time a fully naked man ever killed scores of people?

I’ll give you gymnophobic moralists at the Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach Police Departments the answer: ZERO.

How many people have been killed by gun violence in Horry County since May? At least five, by my count. And how many people have been killed by auto accidents in the county? At least ten.

Nudity is NOT the problem. It is the guns, the cars, the criminals and the gymnophobic people who pass laws banning public nudity who are the biggest problems in America right now! People who go out nude in public are NOT criminals, not by a long shot.

In fact, the real criminals are of the following:

1. The people who passed laws banning public nudity.
2. The cops who arrest people for public nudity.
3. The people who profess to be Christians, yet are intolerant of nudists, women, breastfeeding moms and LGBT people.

Those who promote gymnophobia are promoting rape culture. Those who support banning public nudity are also promoting rape culture, and are rape enablers.

It is obvious that the Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach police have way too much time on their hands. It is time for Congress to rein in these rogue law enforcement agencies, as well as all others, who arrest people for public nudity by ending taxpayer funding for their war on nudists.

BREAKING NEWS: John Kasich lies to the people, decides to wage a war on Ohio’s women

John Kasich breaks his promise, signs anti-choice laws

COLUMBUS — Ohio Gov. John Kasich lied to the people and in the process, broke a promise not to sign anti-choice measure on Sunday evening by signing a litany of unconstitutional anti-choice measures that passed on the final day of the Ohio State legislature’s 2013 session.

The bills he signed would do some of the following:

  1. Shut down all women’s healthcare providers in the Buckeye State.
  2. Defund Planned Parenthood, the only true women’s healthcare provider nationwide.
  3. Defunds all rape crisis centers in the state of Ohio.
  4. Bans all hospitals — both public and private — from allowing admitting privileges from OB-GYNs
  5. Requires all physicians to lie in saying that abortion causing breast cancer, which we all know is not true.
  6. Doubles the abortion waiting period
  7. Requires women to be sexually assaulted by the government via ultrasounds

All of these proposals will definitely be challenged in federal court first thing Monday morning. Ohio is not in the judicially activist conservative Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. [WLWT-DT News 5] Read the rest of this entry »
