    VCU and surrounding areas crime

    If VCU crime & their anti-life policies are going to be subjects for discussion then maybe it ought to get a sticky.

    Here's another one for you:

    Grape, did you change the title? I had "Sticky - VCU crime" as kind of a joke/suggestion. I don't see the VCU crime spree going away anytime soon. You can delete this thread if you want.

    Nope - hadn't even read this one 'till just now. There are a number of threads/postings that relate to the general subject though. Campus safety and the right of self-defense for students and staff is a major issue - expect to see a lot more activity in this area.

    Crime in and around both campuses of VCU has been happening for decades. The difference today is tweeting, texting and legislation regarding a duty to inform. The crime won't go away until the punks and thugs disappear. We can change things one person at a time. Patience is a virtue.

    Crime has been happening since the beginning of time and since time memorable criminals have gone to the areas of greatest opportunity for them - those rich with targets of opportunity for them. While advances have been made in the methods of reporting the crimes (after they occur), the fact remains that VCU leads the state supported universities in violent crimes.

    We do change things one person at a time, but how much better to improve the odds for complete classes (pun intended) all at the same time: students, staff and employees. The benefits of reduced violence in this area would effect not only these people, but the merchants and residents surrounding VCU campuses. The entire city would thereby benefit. The real difference happens when those at risk have the means to defend themselves.

    Patience is a virtue? Not always - tell that to a young lady facing a determined rapist or a young man standing alone against 4 or 5 attackers - reminds me of "just give them what they want." Of course that might be their life or virtue, rather than their cell phone. I will not stand by and patiently watch others suffer such trauma.

    Worst of all is that the lives, virtues and cell phones do not belong to those offering them to the criminal element. It should not, must not, be theirs to give.

    10/22 armed robbery - near Monroe Park

    No shots were fired and no one was injured in an armed robbery on a downtown Richmond street late Monday night near Virginia Commonwealth University's main academic campus.

    VCU is a dangerous place

    According to the Virginia State Police’s Crime in Virginia Report for 2011, VCU has the largest police force among state schools, with 79 sworn officers, 25 more than George Mason’s, the next-largest campus police force in the state with 54 officers.


    That report from the state police indicates that VCU had the highest number of incidents among the 24 colleges and universities reported, 1,111 total , which is more than double those at the next highest school, the University of Virginia. VCU tallied the highest number of assaults, larcenies, weapons law violations and drug/narcotic offenses among state schools.

    Crime Map VCU

    Yes you have to register to view the details & I can't copy and paste it here.

    Yes it is worth the overview. It's startling, shocking and the depictions are only a fraction of the actual crimes committed. Estimate that about 200 crimes are "pinned" to this area. Previous report from VSP counts over 1,100!!

    I used 907 Floyd Avenue as the address for the Student Commons Area (center of VCU) and searched for 1 year time span.

    I am OCing in Lynchburg but with the storm approaching

    http://www.newsleader.com/apps/pbcs....01%2F310260017

    I wish I were closer to this college OCing of course. This is a daughter of a friend of mine.

    Not VCU but it could happen there too.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    A new one:
    http://www.nbc12.com/story/19953367/...ery-in-the-fan

    VCU officials immediately issued a crime alert to students and residents in the area.

    "The past month or so there have been robberies almost every week," said student Helen Mays.
    She's thankful for the alerts that help her better plan where and when she will take a stroll in the neighborhood.
    "It keeps you aware especially at night if you're going to go out with a group more rather than just go out by yourself," she said.

    Chief John Venuti? That would be embarrassing.

    More likely a student that didn't call 911 soon enough.
