Exposing the criminal element for 3 years

Michael Nickens

Michael Nickens decided to rob a woman at gunpoint in downtown Charleston this morning. He caught a face full of pepper spray for his trouble, but still managed to get away with the victim’s purse. The felon with the face on fire was captured a short time later by CPD. Too bad solicitors and judges have qualified immunity and can’t be sued for the poor decisions they make which ultimately lead to other people being victimized. Let’s run it down, because the media certainly won’t tell you.

It probably is a great thing for taxpayers that victims can’t sue the solicitor or the judge in Charleston County. The county would be flat broke. In fact, it would be in very deep hole.

Remember folks, elections have consequences.


  1. I’m sitting at my fiance”s bedside at MUSC because this complete LOSER attacked her on August 2nd 2015 , he broke he cheeks and jaw . He assaulted her stole he purse and stomped her head into the pavement in broad daylight in DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON !!!! If we cant keep people like this permanently of the streets then our solicitor and judges HAVE FAILED US !!!!!!

  2. Condolences Olin to you and her. Dont think this will go un-noticed.

  3. YOA. Don’t you have to be a youth first to qualify?

  4. The name is actually a misnomer since the whole thing has been perverted now. It was designed to give first time offenders a break and was initially only given one time. Now, we see felons getting multiple YOA sentences. Given the fact that our solicitors and judges are handing out breaks anyway, we think it is time to do away with YOA.

  5. problem is, once a “free pass” program has been established and put in use, it is damn near impossible to dismantle. especially if, in doing so, “minority” populations might be adversely affected. add to that the general belief in Judges’ Chambers that handing out these “free passes” just MIGHT result in a scofflaw “seeing the light” and you may as well simply make handcuffs out of play-dough.
