Default What the hell is going on in Columbia?

http://www.wistv.com/story/25131885/...fight-shooting

At what point is our city government going to actually address the problem and deal with the gangs that roam 5 points and the vista? Surely our leaders cant spend all their time being corrupt pieces of crap...

This is an absolute black eye for the city and for the university. The lack of leadership in getting this crap cleaned up is appalling. Someone or some organization needs to step up and put a program in place that will clean up the 5 points area and violence in general around the city.

Twice for me. Cocaine is a helluva drug.

All joking aside, it is happening too frequently to not take drastic measures. Sucks for the current students and probably future students.

I mean surely there are other cities that have had troubles like this and have since cleaned it up. Can Columbia not hook up with the people that helped clean that up to implement it in Columbia?

Hopefully the new police chief makes this a priority. The video of this incident is crazy. The guy pulls a gun and fires into that SUV like it is no big deal, in the middle of five points.

I had to train in Columbia 3 years ago and spent a few nights in 5 points. Unbelievable what a shithole it's become. Maybe it was always that bad but I was too young to notice. Not sure, but it honestly should just be shut down if law enforcement isn't going to make a real effort to fix the problem.

Yeah, I've always prefered the Vista even while I was in school, but I was in my late 20's when I started at Carolina so that may have had some impact on my watering hole preferences.

The real problem is there is a large majority of a generation that thinks it's ok to just shoot each other. Has nothing to do with race, has to do with a lack of caring what happens to anybody else. I haven't been to 5 points in a while now because it just isn't worth it to go. To many idiots wandering around looking for trouble.
