    More school violence

    Carjack victims were put on hold by 911 | ajc.com

    This comes during a period when robberies and carjackings at another nearby Atlanta university, Georgia Tech, are reaching epidemic proportions.

    It's clear the criminals are picking on students for a reason.

    Sure glad the one had enough sense to program the PD number. Not much help to be put on hold by 911. In Delaware 911 asks if your call is an emergency prior to putting anyone on hold. If you say yes, you get immediate attention.

    Its going to take a tragic incident to slow this down. Hopefully it will be the robber that dies and not the victim of the crime.

    In November last year three Univ of Tenn freshman football players attempted to rob another student at the gas pump of a convenience store just off campus. If I recall correctly after the victim gave up his wallet the robbers gave it back to him because he only had a few dollars in it.

    They then fled in a car driven by a female friend and were arrested on campus a short time later. The "gun" used in the robbery turned out to be a pellet gun.

    I have gotten gas at this very store on several occasions in Knoxville. They are very lucky I wasn't the victim because I'm sure I wouldn't have recognized that I was being robbed with a pellet gun and the robber holding it would very likely had died from his wounds.

    I have to wonder, and hope I never find out, do they put on elevator music or what while you're on 911-hold? Maybe commercials for local funeral homes? Sad.
