Richard Combs to Face Retrial in Death of Bernard Bailey

Richard Combs

When a South Carolina jury first heard the case of a former small town police chief who shot and killed an unarmed Black man, the trial lasted six days and the jurors deliberated for 12 hours before telling the judge they were deadlocked. On Monday, Richard Combs, the white former police chief of Eutawville, will be retried on a murder charge in the May 2011 death of Bernard Bailey. Bailey died outside the small community’s town hall, which also houses the town’s one-man police department.

At the time of Combs’s indictment last December, the case drew comparisons to the shooting of a Black man in Ferguson, Missouri, and the chokehold death of a Black by police officers in New York City.
