    • Not trying to make light of this bust or the cartoonish sounding Ghostface Gangsters, but if this is the best a white supremacy group can bring to the table, I believe their quest is short lived..

  1. Congratulations Sheriff Roundtree and all his law enforcement team who took down this despicable group in low life criminals. Makes me proud of Augusta while other cities like Wash DC broil out of control we have police who are getting the job done.

  2. Congratulations RCSO for this achievement. Wondering what specific crimes these low life people have committed…does anybody know ? Can Press find out and let us know ? What is the criminal activity to which Sheriff is referring ?

  3. Looking at their sunken faces, crappy complexions, skanky hair, missing teeth, and black bags under their eyes, it’s a sure bet they were charged with possession of, and intent to distribute, methamphetamine. Another sure bet is possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Maybe possession of ugly tattoos.
