Doing the right thing was once considered a just reward. Now families have to raise funds so they can have money to offer to incentivize others to do the right thing. Unfortunately, it does not always work.
The family of BCSO Lt. Will Rogers has announced a reward of $11,000 for whoever comes forward with information leading to the arrest of the maggot who shot him in a cowardly fashion. It is a damn shame his kids have to stand front of news cameras and plead for someone to step up. Someone out there knows something. Let’s hope they need a few dollars.
We don’t have much confidence in that reward bringing in any real tips. We hope it does, but given the results in other cases we have our doubts.
Take the still unsolved case of Ariel Morgan, murdered at a party last June. Another innocent gunned down by callous thugs. Her family has managed to raise a reward fund of approximately $9,000, yet that has failed to elicit any response or actionable information from our local community of thugs and thug supporters.
It seems Berkeley County has a problem with cowards who shoot and kill innocents, ambush law enforcement officers and those who cover for those cowards.
