Columbia, SC — The Huns are at the gate! The savages are running amok, robbing, raping and murdering at will … and I haven’t even dug into my bag of hyperbole yet!
So what do the best and brightest suggest we do to solve this problem? Close the bars early. Seriously.
What would they do if there was a spate of bank robberies? Close the banks?
What do you do if the thugs continue their mayhem just prior to the new mandated closing time? Keep closing them earlier and earlier?
Closing bars is just giving up and ceding the late-night streets to the predators. Why not just pay them to stop victimizing us? It makes about as much sense.
