    sad events lead to my sister agreeing to carry OC spray

    Kent State student, beaten badly in fight, died today at hospital | Metro - cleveland.com - cleveland.com
    KENT, Ohio -- A 23-year-old Kent State University student beaten unconscious during a fight near campus last Sunday has died, police said.

    Christopher M. Kernich, who grew up in Fairborn, was pronounced dead at 4:30 p.m. at Akron City Hospital, Kent Police said.

    Kernich was walking on East Main Street with several other KSU students after 2 a.m. Sunday when he was hurt.


    According to police, Kernich and a group of students were almost hit by a car pulling out of a parking lot at Depeyster Street. The people in the car, Kernich and his friends got into a fight and Kernich was severely beaten.

    Two University of Akron students -- Ronald Kelly, 20, and Adrian Barker, 21 -- have been charged with felonious assault in the case. Police are also looking for a third man.

    It was unclear Saturday whether those charges might change after Kernich's death.



    My sister is a KSU student and this beating death that took place on a busy street corner that she crosses often has finally lead her to agree to carry her OC spray every time she goes out. when will people learn that just because college campuses are "gun free" it does not mean they are safe?

    I do all the time as well as reminding her to travel in groups... although this guy was in a group and still did not make it.

    When? When blood gets on their own shoes. One can only hope it's prior to the blood being their own.

    Suggestion: Get her to spend a little time on DefensiveCarry, reading some of the situations that folks discuss, here. Perhaps it will help.

    Pepper spray? Why, to make a group of thugs angry?
    Get her into a SD pistol class, get her permit, and then teach her how to defend herself.

    You can get away with anything if you are the only one that knows about it. How much is her life worth? Larry

    As students, we should not have to choose between our education and safety.
