Ventilated in the ‘Ville
Another serial offender was fatally ventilated in Summerville last night. Curtis Tywon (aka Tyquan) Mitchell, 37, was shot in the parking lot of a local paint business where large groups normally hang out. Mitchell had a violent criminal history spanning Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties.
We first reported on Mitchell when Moncks Corner police were searching for him in 2013 when he shot up someone’s home after a traffic beef. Curiously, those charges don’t show up in the Berkeley County public database. Either the warrants were not served or the case was quietly disappeared. We featured Mitchell’s Charleston County history in this post. At the time we did not delve into his history in the other two counties, but suffice it to say there were multiple charges of Assault With Intent to Kill, Assault & Battery With Intent to Kill, Assault & Battery of a High & Aggravated Nature, and drug charges. Most of the charges in Berkeley County were dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor’s office. One charge of ABWIK in the 1st Circuit was plead down to Simple Assault.
Mitchell is just the latest example of a violent serial offender consistently given breaks by prosecutors and allowed to rampage through the streets of the Lowcountry. Kinda sucks how the criminal justice system discriminates against black folks, doesn’t it? Fortunately, the self-cleaning feature of the streets has now taken care of that problem.
Initial reports indicate a dark colored Chevrolet Impala and a dark colored Infinity were observed fleeing the scene. Both cars contained black males with the ones in the Impala reportedly in possession of firearms.
Black lives matter? Not so much, it seems.
