South Carolina cafeteria manager gets 10 years for enslaving black man

https://www.postandcourier.com/news/sc-man-gets-years-for-enslaving-black-man-with-cognitive/article_b5034412-00d7-11ea-99c1-b7a8d40e22db.html
 
from a separate report: "John Christopher Smith, had worked at J&J Cafeteria as a dishwasher since he was 12 — originally working for pay. But when Edwards took over as manager of his family's restaurant, he stopped paying Smith, who according to court documents has an IQ of less than 70."

So the feds were able to gain a conviction when the state didn't even file charges...might be kind of interesting to know why.

Six years and nobody noticed nothing?

I'll bet it's more like 6 years and nobody SAID nothing.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if Billy Bob Whitetrash's brother (who owns the restaurant and is included in the pending lawsuit) and good buddies knew darn well what was going on.

There was a case in Philadelphia a few years back where some woman kept a couple developmentally challenged people locked up in a basement under terrible conditions for a long time before she was caught.
 
We found out about that and this case in SC. I hate to say it, but it's hard not to wonder how many other things like this are going on that nobody has discovered yet.

Not necessarily.  Just need to do more thorough background checks.

Also Georgia and Louisiana should be scrutinized for their recent restrictions on reproductive rights before traveling to these states.

Too bad we don't have a system in which we have one state where everything is forbidden and another state where everything is allowed and we can sit back and watch how it all plays out.
