Lots of friends have had bikes stolen -- where one friend reports that all of her workstudy earnings for the entire semester are going to the bike shop because a Beach cruiser she borrowed was stolen -- but campus safety hasn't beefed up security. They are, as you shall see, making it an all you can eat, In N Out buffet on campus.
We've had actual invasions into dorm rooms this semester and someone was held at gun point up at Pomona College last year, in 2008 a CMC RA was stabbed, and a year before that a Pomona college girl was robbed at gun point in her dorm room. And lest, we forget, in 2002, a gun man took refuge on Pitzer's campus.
But our campus security spends more time going after people with BB guns than keeping us safe.
A few years ago an empty shelling casing was found on the ground at Pitzer College and the campus flipped out, prompting a campus wide email.
Want to see just how pathetic we've become? Take a look at the Claremont College's April 2007 Crime and Incident Report. [The emphasis, as always, is mine.]
A student reported a male pointed a gun at her as she walked by a group in a parking lot. Campus Safety and Claremont Police officers responded, and located a group of students filming a class project with unloaded BB guns. The reporting student declined to file charges, and the students were given a warning and banned from the campus. The guns were confiscated.
That's right. They found out that the BB guns were unloaded and they still confiscated them.
.... but if you want campus safety, here's where you can find them: In N Out.
