Columbia community meeting – 16 Sep 08


A sexual attack of college student led city leaders to announce the reopening of a city police substation downtown.

Officials also said they had discussions with county officials about dropping off jail inmates at other locations in the city besides the downtown Sumter Street bus station.

That proposal brought an angry response at Monday’s meeting from city resident and community activist Kevin Gray. He contended that by changing the drop-off spot for inmates released on bail, city leaders were “basically removing the presumption of innocence” from the inmates.
