Exposing the criminal element for 3 years

Cockroaches Keep Coming Back


The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office has named a person of interest in the recent quadruple murder in Holly Hill. That person is none other than CTL alumni Michael Deroaknel Smith, Jr., aka “Rambo”, aka “Mykel Smith“, aka Mikel Smith. We first wrote about Smith in 2012 when he was rounded up by U.S. Marshals on five outstanding charges including CDV and narcotics related offenses. We also wrote about Smith in Part II of our series on the gang known as “Town of Lincolville/Cut Throat Jack Boys”.

Smith is said to have denied any involvement in the Holly Hill murders.







Smith is currently in jail in Orangeburg County after he fled from police Tuesday evening and led them on a high speed chase. Smith was fleeing because U.S. Marshals were trying to arrest him on warrants out of Berkeley County for Strong Arm Robbery, 1st Degree Assault & Battery, 2nd Degree Assault & Battery and 3rd Degree Assault & Battery. Looks like “Rambo” wasn’t such a “badazz” after all.








An interesting post went up on Smith’s page two days after the murders. Probably just a coincidence, huh?

Smith is a serial violent offender with several murder/attempted murder charges to his credit, as well as a number of violent assaults and robberies. Of course, they were  usually in the 9th Circuit so you know they were dismissed. Let’s run through his extensive record in the tri-county area. You might want to grab a snack and something to drink. This will take a while.



2005 Charges (Dorchester County):

Discharging a Firearm into a Dwelling - Plead guilty. Sentenced by Judge Doyet Early to 2 years.

Possession of a Firearm on Property Where Alcohol is Sold - 2 years, concurrent.

That certainly amounts to a lot of charge in the past 10 years, many of them violent. Smith is another one you can point to the next time some liberal idiot claims the criminal (in)justice system is “racist”. This should not be on the streets, period. He is a violet serial offender who keeps getting breaks from prosecutors and judges. Nothing new, unfortunately.





  1. I can almost guarantee that this man is being investigated by the feds and that’s why they keep letting him out.. Drug war casualties

  2. Hard to look like a tough guy when you get your picture taken in front of a station wagon…

    And I don’t care if its a Magnum either. It’s a freakin station wagon.

    Bwahahahahahahaha Mr Thug!

  3. R.i.p to the victims. Even if this @:: hole didn’t do this!!!! WHY in the world was he even free in the streets?????! Pisses me off to see such extensive records and they got a slap on the wrist,a pat on the butt and a kiss. We need a system overhaul. Do the crime, pay the time….the first [email protected]** time

  4. Im willing to bet that this Ahole had something to do with the murders or know something about it. He is probably tied in with them boys who got caught up in the international traffiking conspiracy from Mexico to SC. What a class act.

  5. Damn!

    I wish my sins of castle law self defense were similarly forgiven or otherwise dismissed, despite my relentless / politically incorrect / exercision of my constitutional rights as a job creating and tax paying patriot in the exposure of Berkeley County govt coverups / corrupt good ole boys / and the pathological liars and phony leaders (true sociopaths) training up the queer mason scouts of America in SC.

    Then again, His book is quite clear that we Christians will be persecuted for standing up for His Truth and Justice.

    So, you corrupt political sluts and adult bullies in coven with your deceptive shriner kin, keep bringin it to my doorstep “buddy”. :)

    Rest assured witch, the crimes I haven’t captured on video, are recorded in the Lambs Book Of Life…

    …and your Scottish rites sugar daddy… Albert Pikes wet dreams…
