Woman disrupts Richmond County’s Board of Education meeting



Less than 20 minutes into the Richmond County Board of Education meeting on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 15, a woman stormed into the room shouting loudly as law enforcement officers converged on her.

“I don’t care about going to jail! It’s their fault! They shouldn’t have made him kill himself!” wai...

  1. This is a tragedy. Ms. Jenkins is wrong however. Sadly this young man did it to himself and NURTURING is the very thing that killed him. A well intended person tried to help a young person get a start in life and he took advantage of their genrosity if the articles in the media are accurate .In my humble opinion it shows a lack of good judgement to give someone access to the kind of money to buy a van and billboard advertisements. You just don’t give anyone your credit card or access to your money like that. And it not be your own child especially

    • My friend the devil is in the details. Was there a conspiracy to defraud Tyrique out of his elected School Board position by elected officials in Augusta-Richmond, and none elected associates? Did they blackmail him after publicly assassinating his character with accusations of alleged wrongdoing? Will there be further investigation by the coroner’s office or DA’s office? Do a South Carolina resident have the right to decide who will represent Augusta Richmond County On The Board of Education? I raised these questions with direct knowledge and facts.

  2. It is very sad. I have no idea of whatever went on behind the scenes, and I guess they’ll come out eventually. Bottom line is that whatever happened, it surely wasn’t worth this young man taking his own life.
    That being said, in hindsight, this man was too young to take on a heavy responsibility like being on the school board, or any governmental position. He simply can’t possibly have the maturity and wisdom that life experiences give you to handle the situations that come about. Business and government can be cutthroat and duplicitous.
    Enough of that. For now, my prayers go out to this young man’s family and friends. May he RIP.

    • Oh good grief! Will you stop? I feel your post should be deleted for inciting racial divisiveness…there is NO indication of this and you know it. In fact, I feel this is extremely insensitive, inconsiderate, and unnecessary.

  3. very very sad and heartbreaking. I still wonder how one person, not even an incumbent, ran unopposed for this seat, esp. a 20 year old. Everyone knows how these seats are jockeyed for. That part will not make sense to me. I am sure there is more behind the scenes that may eventually come out. But for any person to pull such a sad desperate act is heartbreaking.
