they just banned a kid from my college beacuse he made threats against the school... there's an alert out and his picture is everywhere beacuse they're afraid he could come back to campus... he assaulted two teachers and was arrested a few days ago.

everyone is instructed to call the police if we see him on campus.

this is kind of scary.

i hope they are able to keep the campus safe.

Actually, in respect to what has been happening in recent years, I applaud your school for taking the preemptive actions. It might be scary but a lot less scarier then being surprized by a gun toting loon on campus!
Please stay safe!

i agree compleatly! i'm glad they banned him from campus and showed us his picture so we would know if he comes back!
it's just so scary to think that central could have become the next vtech if they had not caught him.

I think this borders on witchunting. All it takes is one accusation and it could send a school into hysteria.

he attacked two teachers and then threatened the entire school. would you prefer the school just brushed it off and did nothing?

i'm sure you wouldn't feel that way if this was your school.
i'm terrified for my friends that live on campus.

Witch-hunting would imply taking a stereotype and trying to fit people into it, no matter the evidence.

This child has demostrable actions that cry out for atention - atention that would have saved kids in other situations.

Your position screams provocation, and is warrentlees.

I hope all is well on this campus.

As much as it is scary, it happens every single day, everywhere.

It's a sad and dangerous world we live in.

Earlier today I got an email from my college:

"The health, safety and welfare of (NAME OF SCHOOL faculty, staff and students are of utmost importance. To that end and in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, the following notice of a reported incident is being posted to keep the university community well
informed:

REPORTED OFFENSE:

During the evening of Thursday, October 25, 2007, university police received a report from a female student that she had been sexually assaulted by an acquaintance who is a male student. The assault allegedly took place in a residence hall on (NAME OF CAMPUS). On Sunday, October 21, 2007, The male student has been
identified, suspended on an interim basis and will be trespassed. This matter is under active investigation. As always, it remains the university's policy to fully investigate and report such incidences on a case by case basis.
"


Unfortunately these emails aren't far and few between. It's a disturbing truth of safety and reality.

I am one to worry about EVERYTHING (and trust me, I do worry about this stuff), but there's only so much you can do about it. I think posting a thread "holy crap" on a Broadway message board (yes, I know it's called off-topic) about it was a bit much.
Perhaps something suited for the banal thread.

Bull****. There are MANY young people who post here who will and do find this kind of topic of importance.

Your judgement is duly noted, however.

No dear, it doesn't actually happen every single day, everywhere. But I suppose if people speaking Spanish freaks you out, then you're tailor made for a world filled with fear in which marketeers tell you that only spending lots of money on **** you don't need will soothe your anxiety.

My friend Ruby went to (NAME OF CAMPUS)! All the girls there were slutty. Especially Ruby.

Ok, Namo, you're right - it doesn't happen everywhere all the time. But it does happen.

And I'll be damned if I can figure out where your Spanish-speaking angle came from. I went back and looked at the original posted article, and I don't get it - what are you referencing?

Apparently, SweetQ used to post under a different name and once made a statement that Spanish speakers in America irked her... or something.

Ah, yes - got it.

But even a world that is tilted toward foolish fear would be foolish to ignore obvious signs.

But it DOES happen. Fairly often. We now live in a society where kids are figuring out that terrorism is a powerful tool they can employ to get attention, scare people. We have to take this very seriously because it's becoming a prevalent issue in our society. Schools should send a message that they are on top of this.
