Two South Carolina Teens Ask Man To Help Pull Their Car Out of Ditch . . . Then Murder The Man

1471431829176 Deon Frasier, 17, and Michael Dupree-Taylor, 19, are two South Carolina teens who have distinguished themselves in the alleged depravity of criminal conduct. The two asked 45-year-old Chadwick Garrett to help them pull their vehicle out of ditch. When he did so, they allegedly shot and killed him rather than pay him for his trouble.

scshooting18n-3-webGarrett was reportedly promised $20 to pull the car out of the ditch. When he asked about the money, he was reportedly shot several times in the chest. The affidavit is a bit unclear on the witness who came forward. She is described as calling police 20 minutes after the shooting about her SUV being used without her permission.

Police went to the woman’s apartment and she said that Frasier and Dupree-Taylor were inside.

Police say that Dupree-Taylor confessed to being at the scene of the shooting while Frasier confessed to being the gunman that shot and killed Garrett.

Bond has been denied in the case.

The shocking case maximizes the premeditation and callous elements that tend to guarantee a death sentence. With the confessions, if admissible, the defense would have to focus on the mitigating elements on sentencing. However, this is not a good case for any jury.

  1. We didn’t have much, if any of the drug-related crimes that we suffered dearly from in the past 80 years since Drug Prohibition. Legal drugs are cheap – thus no need to rob, steal, murder etc. to get money to pay the artificially high price of illegal drugs.

    END LEO corrupion, drug cartels, U.S. military occupation/protection of drug smuggling (e.g. U.S. military patrols to protect – Poppy fields in Afghanistan).

    Apparently, very few people here know much about the history of “The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia” & what most informed people know: most of the problems/crime that’s drug related would disappear overnight, along with violent Drug cartels – by the simple expedient of legalizing drugs. Sure, the many special interests which profit from our absurd, irrational drug laws – would be forced to find other ways to earn a living. Lawyers, LEO. private prisons, bail bondsmen et al. would be losers. Congress would have to begin funding CIA covert operations that are presently funded by the largest Drugs cartel in the world: The U.S. government.

  2. In the “tough on crime, tough on the CAUSES of crime” department, the simplest, fastest, surest way to reduce life and property crimes is to legalize drugs. F

    Chesterton’s fence, bill. Charles Murray offered he would not be opposed to legal trade in street drugs if people had no recourse but the labor market. Well, in 1914, you had a choice of indoor relief or the labor market. Law and custom also gave relatives more control over errant family members. They prohibited free traffic in street drugs anyway.

    Once the toothpaste is out of the tube, it’s very tough to get it back in.
