"A man is strangled to death in a Colleton County home. Another is gunned down outside a West Columbia house. A third is grazed by a bullet as five rounds rip through his car on James Island. All three events occurred this month, and in each case authorities know exactly who inflicted those injuries. But so far, no one has been charged with a crime. That's because each incident involves a citizen trying to protect his home or property, and the state tends to give great leeway to folks who use deadly force in such situations." (02/27/11)
