Bad Place

I pray those involved will be okay. I am also curious as to the motive because I know this complex has had a problem with drugs in the past when I was working EMS. This is also the same location Aiken Officer Scotty was shot to death a few years back. Paces Run in Aiken compares to whatever bad apt complexes there are in Augusta.

Section 8

Section 8 housing is a real problem. Google Paces Run Aiken Section 8 "Paces Run has 56 total units with 56 assisted living units. The property is intended for the Family (LMSA) housing program. Last inspected on 3/19/09, Paces Run earned a Housing Quality Standards score of 82 out of 100, which means the living conditions of the property are below average. A score of 86 or above is considered healthy and safe by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and any property that scores below an 86 should be avoided"

Paces Run and other places where a certain group congregates will always have a high incidence of drug and crime problems. Thugs like to cannibalize their own.

Double standard!!!

Why does Augusta only get mention when it's something negative? The next article related to one of the nice apartment complexes or neighborhoods in Aiken County.. Please compare the apartments or neighborhood versus somewhere in Augusta.

The negative nancies don't have anything sarcastic to say, because it didn't happen in Richmond County..

Did you read my comment? If you don't think that it wasn't sarcastic I feel sorry for your poor education. Was it in Richmond County?

Despicable

Despicable that someone that does not live in Aiken County dare comment.

But I feel certain this poster has intimate knowledge of Carolina Springs Road....
