Where the gang set upon Carter Strange was not an out-of-the-way place

You probably don’t remember this but I grew up in Columbia, South Carolina. The Catholic school where I received my elementary education is about a mile from where the attack on Carter Strange took place. What is shocking is that this intersection—Blossom and Saluda—is not in some out-of-the-way, dimly lit corner of the city. Carter Strange had little reason to think he was doing anything unsafe jogging through there, where there are always plenty of people in cars and on foot, even late at night. It is directly adjacent to the university campus, with dozens of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and the like all within a stone’s throw. If a man is not safe at that intersection, then there is no place in Columbia that is safe from savage racial violence.
