— What bothers me even more is the lack of troopers on S.C. roads; I have seen one in a month of travel.

A family and community recently buried a son, a neighbor, a friend and a classmate in Brandon Mayo because of someone driving under the influence of some intoxicant.

Would more troopers have prevented this? Who knows? But we as a state owe it to Brandon and his family to put more troopers on the road.
