"From all early indications, this was an isolated incident and there was and is no apparent threat to the campus community," university provost Elizabeth Garrett said.

This is an "isolated incident" claims this official. What nonsense!!!! SC is in one of the WORST areas of LA. I mean its downright scary there at night.I would never even consider sending a child there. I'm sure it was lovely back in the beginning (and God knows the city has tried very hard to clean it up and add nice buildings in the last few years), but the criminal element is everywhere! Too bad they couldn't just relocate to a safer community. There is so much tradition there.





We are sad to hear the death of a student. Our sympathy goes to his family. I know the area around USC. It is not safe for a single person walking at night or even during day. The area surrounding USC is inhabited by low income people and gang infested. I would not recommend a single person, be it a man or woman, walk around. To say that this is an isolated event is a joke. Moreover, if you are a white, please do not go beyond the area bordered by Adams Blvd on north, Figueroa Street on east, Vermont Avenue on west, and Exposition Blvd on south. I am very familiar with that area for many years.





What the hell do you mean an isolated incident. USC is located right in Watts a very dangerous area. You don't dare go off campus or you are subject to attack. You are not safe on campus as there are all kinds of incidents there that are hushed up. USC is aware of the dangers but does not inform students of the real risk. They should have moved the campus 40 yrs ago like Pepperdine did. It is in an unsafe neighborhood and I wouldn't permit my child to go there due to the danger.





This is NOT an isolated incident and DOES pose a threat to the entire USC family community. WAKE UP USC administrators. As a USC grad, and a born and raised in LA guy, I am acutely aware of the dangerous areas of Los Angeles. USC is unfortunately in a danger zone. And for that reason, my kids will never attend my alma mater. The USC administration should recognize that the USC 'community' extends beyond the walls and guard gates surroundng the school and invest in extending security throughout the contiguous area near the campus. Another senseless killing of an innocent person by the local lowlives that infest the central Los Angeles area. My thoughts and prayers go out the Ji family.





First of all, my deepest sympathy to this innocent young man's family. Second, university provost ElizabethGarrett said, "from all indications this was an isolated incident and there was and is no apparent threat to the campus community". Don't you just hate it when someone like this insults your intelligence! Authorities said there were at least three suspects, the student was hit with a blunt object that eventually killed him, and they have no suspects in custody. Yet, there is no danger to the campus community? These people will do anything to down play even murder, to protect their college image. It's totally disgusting! It sounds like this innocent college student was attacked by a pack of animals who need a lot of their own type of medicine.





As a former student at USC back in the 70's, this area has continued to be encroached upon by a once affluent neighborhood that is now a gang/thug filled hood. USC is a premier US University and charges those massive fees. You can not tell me that with their huge endowment --- SPORTS of course --- that they are not able to hire security that are on foot in the neighboring hood, Keeping a high profile? They aren't able to work with the city to install major canvasing CCTV coverage? Why haven't they acquired surrounding land over the years to create campus adjacent green space other than the city's Exposition Park -- which after dark is scary. There is so much the University and city of Los Angeles could have and could be doing to acquire neglected homes and created great green space and campus housing so you don't have to be a trust fund baby to live in student housing. This is not an isolated incident --- it is another seldom reported rape, robbery or killing. SHAME on USC.





USC is in a bad area of L.A. and the article says the student was out at 12:45 AM. I know we should all be able to walk in our neighborhoods at any time and I am upset that a young man who showed so much promise has lost his life. However, I don't think being out at 12:45 AM in the area of USC is prudent. I was born and raised in Chicago's inner city so I am not a stranger to urban areas that may not be the safest neighborhoods to be in. Hopefully, LAPD will be able to find the guilty parties and bring them to justice.





USC is located in one of the worst, high crime areas of any campus anywhere. I lived in LA for 23 years and it's known that that area of the city is rife with gangs, prostitution, etc. The Staples Center and other developments in nearby downtown were supposed to bring more affluence to the area, but it's obvious that nothing much has changed. It's extremely unfortunate. USC is a premier institution, but I wouldn't ever want to go there given it's location.





Most Chinese still have no idea how dangerous it could be to walk just one block in some U.S. cities.
