Boner Candidate #1: SLAVERY ALIVE AND WELL

A white restaurant manager in South Carolina enslaved a black worker for five years, using physical abuse and threats to force the developmentally challenged man to work as a buffet cook, federal authorities said. An indictment unsealed Wednesday charged Bobby Paul Edwards, a 52-year-old manager at J&J Cafeteria in Conway, with one count of forced labor. Federal prosecutors allege that Edwards “used force, threats of force, physical restraint and coercion” to compel Christopher Smith, 39, to work at the restaurant from September 2009 to October 2014. Details of the alleged abuse Smith suffered at the restaurant emerged in 2015 when his attorneys in Charleston filed a federal lawsuit against Edwards, the business and its owner, Ernest Edwards, who is Bobby Paul Edwards’ brother, the Post and Courier reports.
