  1. BlackInfoToday made the best attempt (a poor one at that) to portray accurately what happened in the court room yesterday. Unfortunately, they left out William’s criminal history and the fact Williams had a pending arrest warrant for failure to attend his court hearing the very morning of the altercation with Pentland.

    The balance of Columbia media printed identical pc mis information painting Mr. Pentland as a raging white nazi attacking his poor defenseless black neighbors. Williams admittedly doesn’t live in the neighborhood but lives 10 minutes away – Williams and the two women he brought along with him were trespassing and were Williams’ co-conspirators.

    Sheriff Lott, Judge Hightower and whoever discharged Sgt Pentland from the Army should have zero respect among civilized people as they have earned none.
