HATE CRIME: Carter Strange, who is white, was allegedly attacked and beaten early Monday morning in the Five Points area of Columbia, SC, by a group of black teens. According to WIS-TV, all eight suspects are in police custody, while the victim is in critical condition. Thyeem Henrey, 19, was charged with second degree assault and battery by mob, common law robbery and criminal conspiracy, WIS-TV said. His bond has been set at $750,000. Yeah, he’ll never be able to post that, so thankfully this thug is off the streets. The other seven suspects, ranging from ages 13 to 16, cannot be named because they are minors. Where were their parents? They should be behind bars with them as well.
Police Chief Randy Scott said the 18-year-old victim, later identified as Carter Strange, was jogging through a parking lot near the intersection of Blossom Street and Saluda Avenue just after midnight on Monday when the assault happened. “This teenager was minding his own business, trying to make his curfew when he was brutally attacked and robbed,” said Scott.

No parent wants to hear that their kid was beaten up and is in critical condition. No amount of punishment meted out to the thugs can’t change what happened to Carter Strange. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. This was a senseless act of violence and should be prosecuted as a hate crime.
URGENT: City passes emergency curfew in wake of vicious Five Points beating of Carter Strange by eight black males.
It is a shame that the city of Columbia, SC, was forced to pass an emergency curfew to get thugs off th street in the aftermath of the vicious beating of white teen, Carter Strange, by eight black males.
Council members unanimously passed an ordinance during a special work session Tuesday morning making in against the law for anyone under the age of 17 to be out in the Five Points area between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. The curfew lasts 60 days and goes into effect immediately. It will be enforced every day of the week. Source
I applaud the city for taking such a move. It is time the parents of these young thugs were also held accountable for their actions.
