    EMU dorm is site of armed robbery
    By NICK MEYER • FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER • January 23, 2009

    Three men brandishing a gun robbed a student and his guests as they sat in the lobby of an Eastern Michigan University dorm early today.


    The EMU student and his three male guests were sitting in the lobby of Sellers Hall in Ypsilanti at about 2:30 a.m. today when three men entered the complex’s lounge area. One of the men pulled a gun and demanded an undisclosed amount of money as well as jewelry from the four victims before fleeing, EMU Department of Public Safety Lt. Bob Hayes said.


    One of the robbers was described as six feet tall with braids and a black hooded sweatshirt. The other was also about six feet tall, wearing a black cap, Hayes said.


    The robbery was the first on campus this year at EMU, compared to four robberies last year.

    Wow, lucky EMU, only 4 robberies last year. I guess the school thinks that is an acceptable number.

    As a college professor, I can tell you that universities HATE bad publicity and always try to pretend everything is just fine. They also hate and are afraid of lawsuits. Maybe that is the approach we should take to wake them up. Unfortunately they will never believe that guns in the hands of good people is the answer, that just goes against their "religion".
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    This attitude is deeply embedded in public K-12 education as well.
