Default Student Shot in Five Points

I saw it on another site, but I am unsure about the rules linking threads from pay sites. The poster on that site asked for prayers for the friend's daughter, an innocent bystander.
An arrest was made.

College of Charleston is downtown, and a lot of hs kids hang out there, and yes, there is a lot of crime targeting students and tourists down there.

Two friends and myself were at Cookout in 5 points a few months back at about midnight, sitting outside eating our food. This group of guys where just walking around the place, and every time they would walk slower and slower as they passed us. I told my friends it was time to go, they laughed about me being paranoid over nothing, later that night some people were robbed by a group of guys near there.

At this point and time, that may be the least important issue. But until the city of Columbia is willing to truly admit the level of gang activity that happens, nothing will change.

From my experience down there, the police are more worried about people being under aged drunk and or public drunk then they are of any real threat. "Hey lets lock up John over here because he's had too much to drink, you know we've got to meet our quota for tonight." but yet they let the pistol toting thug shoot up the place. Seems legit huh?

Yep, because that's a money maker for the city. The 19 year old student who gets arrested/ticketed for drinking will call mom and dad to post bond and pay all their fines in a timely fashion. The drugged out homeless person or ghetto hoodrat roaming the streets end up costing the city money to keep them in jail when they can't pay their fines. (Of course I'm generalizing here but you get what I'm saying)

Expect an escalated police presence in the area next weekend... busting into bars and arresting patrons for underage drinking.

The audacity it takes for city leaders to claim that Columbia doesn't have a gang problem is staggering.

Default Student Shot in Five Points

Something needs to be done about it. This is going on every school year. Maybe they should make it 21 & up like most of the vista, you don't see them problems there as much. I know they'd lose customers but hell house parties are more fun anyway.

Also, I'm expecting to see Mayor Benjamin try and make a big to do about this issue just in time for reelection, just 22 days away.

I of course feel bad for the victim, but why the hell do you walk around 5 Points at 2:30 am? You know this stuff happens, why are you putting yourself there?

No it doesn't "seem legit" and illustrates that you know absolutely nothing about

- the policy
- the reason why the policy was enacted

If you're going to turn this into a "the cops aren't doing their job by busting drunks" thread then at least know a small amount of what specifically is going on down there. You might want to see why business owners in Five Points have pressured the police to create a "family atmosphere"/Vista atmosphere down there for years by using get-tough tactics to "clean up the place", which if you understand broken windows theory means arresting everyone for even minute offenses.

If you disagree with what Five Points business owners have consistently pressured the police to do, then take your business to the Vista.

Well, since bars close at 2 am it's natural to have people in 5 Points on the streets at that time. I remember 5 Points being full of folks at 230 am on Sundays when I was in school, as people made their way back to their cars and to campus.
