    UWPD Wastes No Time

    Received this from my nephew. It apparently was mass-mailed to everybody on campus. Can you find at least 4 things wrong (factually or policywise)? I did.


    UW Madison Students, Faculty, & Staff,

    When Wisconsin’s new concealed carry law goes into effect on November 1, 2011 all weapons will remain prohibited in UW Madison buildings. If you see a person who is not a police officer in uniform carrying a weapon in a UW Madison building, call 911. As allowed by law, persons with licenses will be allowed to have weapons in parking areas and on the grounds of the university. However, do not assume a person has a license. We recommend you think “safety first” and if you err, please err on the side of calling police. Our police officers are trained to react appropriately to those legally or illegally carrying weapons. As always, call UWPD if you see suspicious behavior or someone with a weapon on UW Madison property.

    Please e-mail uwpolice@mhub.uwpd.wisc.edu if you have questions.


    Thanks,



    Chief of Police Sue Riseling
    Associate Vice Chancellor
    UW Madison

    I wonder how they plan to keep them out of the dorms. I belive the laws states that if you rent or live here you can have one.

    Under current law, no, after you have your permit, only if it isn't posted.

    The UW Police chief is a WAVE ghoul.

    I love the "I'm a hunter, but want to restrict guns" comment by the former Madistan mayor. The current mayor says the same thing but leaves out the "I'm a hunter" part.
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?
