The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday afternoon that it is shutting public comments on the sheriff’s office Facebook page. Sheriff Jim Matthews said the move was made because of crude, vulgar and racist comments made regarding a press release earlier this week five men arrested for breaking into cars in the Elgin area. Matthews said there were over four hundred comments, many of them hateful and vile. Matthews said the change was effective immediately. Matthews said folks will still be able to send private messages to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office through the Facebook page.
