So when is the RCSD going to

So when is the RCSD going to put some decoys down on Riverwalk and clean it up. A couple of Officers in plain clothes backed by Officers hiding in the bushes would clean up this type of crime and other types of crime on the Riverwalk. Something needs to be done soon or no one will want to be downtown after dark.

It needs to start embracing

It needs to start embracing some of the virtues of the wild West. GA and SC need to pass open carry laws for handguns so law abiding citizens can start protecting themselves and rid the area of these thugs who only want to rob and steal. It is time to clean up America. If America won't subscribe to social Darwinism then guns will have to do.

I believe the 200 block of 8th street is just off of Broad Street.
The article does not say what time in the morning. I suspect it was at night & not daylight otherwise I doubt the crooks would be up yet.
