Summary of links and other stuff in the news I cannot link: Virginia Wesleyan College (Methodist affiliated). Unarmed security guard loses contact with his dispatcher. At shift change (!!!), somebody goes to look for him. Finds him dead in a building, of stab wound. College president thinks that trimming bushes and installing more lights will help with safety, but disagrees that arming security is the answer. Relatives and students speak out about this deplorable state of affairs, wondering how security can protect the students when they are not allowed to carry a gun to protect themselves (sounds like the lights are coming on, oh so dimly). Subsequently, the president says they are looking at all options when asked about arming the guards. States that only one of five wesleyan colleges in VA have armed security. Most other colleges in area have their own police force.
