For the past few months, News 12 has investigated wild middle school parties at Aiken City Hall. A video we got our hands on shows middle schoolers cussing, flashing gang signs and disturbing the peace. One downtown merchant even tells us these parties are driving off customers at his business nearby.
On this day in 2011, Officer Scott Richardson was gunned down in the line of duty. Then, a month later, it happened again to Corporal Sandy Rogers. As the community tries to move on, Aiken Public Safety is moving forward with some changes of its own. We travel with them to North Carolina to see how a program there could help reduce violence here.
