It's decision time for Chinese students planning to study in the United States this fall, and one issue raised again and again by Chinese parents, how safe will my child be studying in America?
A 24-year-old Chinese graduate student at USC was found dead at his off-campus apartment after being attacked by at least three men as he was walking home from a study group, police said.
Ji was assaulted with a blunt object around 12:45 am on Thursday a few blocks from campus and near his apartment building, investigators said.
The attack came two years after two other Chinese graduate students were shot to death near campus.
In April 2012, two 23-year-old Chinese graduate students in the electrical engineering program, Ying Wu and Ming Qu, were shot to death around 1 a.m. while sitting in a parked BMW just west of campus.
What makes Chinese students easy targets for attack?

Chinese students are so happy to be able to come to the US and study, they have no idea where they are going or nay of the dangers in America. The Americans they come into contact with in China, are friendly and for the most part polite and honest. They form their images of America from these US citizens living in China.

So when they arrive they have no idea of the criminal element here.

This is the only child for his parents. All their hopes and dreams were in him. They expected him to return to China. marry and give them a grandchild. Now everything is gone. They died when he died.

It is heartbreaking to read this. May the murderer(s) rot in Hell.

It is a very unfortunate incident, how it is the USA, and it's not just the US, every day individual die at the hands of others, even in China. All too and very often these kind of act's are all too very often random. Ususally the perpetrator or perpetrators choose at random  their victims. Unless there has been some kind of premeditated plan due to some kind of grievance or racial motive. Approximately 3 years past 2 Chinese students, male and female were murdered in the most horrific manner in the north of England. It later materialized that they had both been involved in big time scams of both British[ forgery,embezzlement and fake documents] but mostly Chinese citizens in mainland China in the way of time lapsed gambling, money laundering and forged documents. Due to the horrific nature of the crime police in the UK were baffled, it later emerged that a number of individuals from China had travelled to the UK specifically just to execute them for their cheating and scamming of a syndicate. No matter what illegal activities the student done it did not justify the execution from another hand, because the other where happy to reap the benefits whilst all things were rosy in the garden

Unfortunate accident that could have happened to anyone, regardless of race. Chinese students should be aware that many countries abroad are not as safe as China: going out alone late at night is not advisable!

Some campuses are safe. USC is not one of them.
Just remember, the U.S. is one gun crazy nation and just about anyone who wants a gun, has a gun.
There is a HUGE drug problem here too. Practically the whole nation of Mexico is a land of gang warfare
due to all the money to be made supplying the U.S. with illegal street drugs. The essence of capitalism.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
