Due to recent events of violence and crime in the downtown area of Columbia, we as current and former students of area colleges and universities and residents of Columbia are attempting to join together to get back the 5 Points area we once knew and felt safe in.
The safety of students from colleges and universities throughout Columbia and all visitors to the 5 Points district is at stake. The success of bars and restaurants throughout 5 Points is endangered by unwarranted crime which has the potential to deter patrons from what has historically been a safe place to gather with friends.
