DRT on Tedder Street
While we were busy there was a home invasion on Tedder Street in the Ashley Heights subdivision. For those folks unfamiliar with the neighborhood, Tedder Street is the continuation of Stall Road after it crosses Ashley Phosphate. The old Stall High School is in that neighborhood. Many years ago this was a middle class area made up of hardworking homeowners. Now it is a ghetto, filled with Section 8 homes and apartments, drug dealers and illegal aliens.
Dominique Ladson was allegedly granted Dead Right There status in front of his children in this home invasion. There really are no scruples in this dope game, are there?
Home invasions are scary, aren’t they? What the “news” reporters fail to tell you is that fact that very few home invasions are actually perpetrated on innocent, law abiding folks in this area. We can think of only one, several years ago in Mt. Pleasant. The remainder have all been drug related.
We did a little digging and we believe this one follows that trend. A lot of folks had nice things to say about Ladson and what a good father he was. One of his pals referred to him as, “..a real street nigga m$m”. For those who don’t know, the “m$m” is a reference to the Money Macon, or Macon Money, drug gang from the southern area of the city of North Charleston.
Let’s see if there are any clues in Ladson’s past as to what may have precipitated this killing.
Possession of 15 Ecstasy Doses - Pled down to Possession of Ecstasy by the 9th Circuit Solicitor less than three months later. Hmmm…….that’s usually indicative of a defendant cooperating with police. Judge Thomas “Felon’s Friend” Hughston sentenced Ladson to 6 months, suspended in favor of one year of probation.
PWID Marijuana and PWID Marijuana Near a School - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor FIVE DAYS later with the note, “Lack of Prosecution, Officer Agrees with Dismissal”. Really? Nah, we don’t think he was a rat at all. What would make you think that????
PWID Marijuana - Pled guilty in May of 2013. In spite of his previous guilty plea before Judge Thomas “Felon’s Friend” Hughston, Ladson was sentenced under the Youthful Offender Act to a term not to exceed one to six years, suspended in favor of two years of probation.
Distribution of Marijuana - Dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
Possession of a Pistol With an Obliterated Serial Number - Pled guilty. Same sentence as above, concurrent.
Maybe our thinking is a little warped, but we don’t think good fathers sell dope and invite violence which puts their children at risk. What do you think?
