Early Saturday morning, May 3rd, at approximately 5:00 am, two students
reported being robbed while sitting in their car in front of Bragaw
Residence Hall. The two suspects came up to the car and demanded money;
one had a small silver handgun. The two suspects were last seen running
towards Student Health Services and possibly were driving a small-sized
pick-up truck. There were no injuries.
Suspect 1: male, dark complexion, black hoodie and long dark shorts,
5'10" to 6 feet tall, skinny, approx. 16-17 years old
Suspect 2: male, dark complexion, grey hoodie and long shorts, 5'6' to
5'8" tall, skinny, approx. 16-17 years old(held handgun)
You would think they might realize at this point that the only people who
are prevented from bringing guns onto campus by these laws are the people
who ACTUALLY OBEY THE LAW?! These kids were not even able to legally own guns,
nor were they able to legally take them on campus, nor were they able to
legally use them to commit a felony. Plus, now that they've committed said felony,
they can't legally own the guns even if everything else they'd done had been
legal! It's absolutely sickening, and I say to someone almost daily that campus is extremely
dangerous and it's honestly the one place I go where I actually feel the need to
be armed. I know they say if you actually think you need a gun, don't go. Well, I
think I need a gun, I'm not allowed to have one, and if I plan on having a decent
job, well then I have to go.
CS/OC spray and two very small knives are my only armament against these types of
attacks on campus, which occur so regularly it's disgusting.
I'm not sure what happened to the font. Something went wrong during the copy and paste.
Sorry about that.
Also, while there was no self defense that I can see, I posted it here because of the general
lack of ability for a law abiding citizen to utilize self defense in these situations.
Those individuals are lucky they were not killed.
