This has been bugging me all day and I almost posted it earlier and said to myself "nah, they'll think I'm :deadhorse: still", but its getting the best of me so here I go. :deadhorse: again.
Not trying to be too critical of LE here, I promise. I have praised SLED many many times through the years. I believe every local PD has its own 'personality' and I also said early on that MBPD was trying to downplay this....in the media, thats fine (not fine, but how it works in tourist areas, I get it), but seriously? Behind the scenes was someone not scouring RSO in the area, MB and Georgetown once they knew (very quickly, IIRC) her phone made a 'beeline' in that direction? Ok, so here's where I technically :deadhorse: - if those attempts the weeks prior to Britt disappearing have nagged me for two years, shouldnt it have nagged someone in LE tasked with checking out RSO and following up on THAT incident...I guess what I am saying is how could LE not have seen a possible connection there and while hopefully scouring the RSO database for Horry/Georgetown/Charleston Counties, NOT have had this guy ping their radar, since you know it seems apparent he has been registered in G'town since 2004, and NOT have said "gee, that guy looks a little like our composite from Captain's Quarters/Hotel Blue attacks"....and maybe "oh, look, he lives very close to Brittanee Drexel's last cell ping."
I mean, this isnt a guy who made a dumb 18 year old mistake by having consensual sex with his 16 year old girlfriend that landed him on RSO. That is one baaaaaad man.
Maybe its just me, and if so, I apologize. :waitasec:
