Armed Robbery in Broad Daylight on College Campus

A female student was the victim of an armed robbery Saturday on the campus of Georgia Tech.  Below is the email from the Dean of Students.

Campus Community,

I wanted to inform you of recent criminal activity on the Georgia Tech campus. On Saturday at approximately 4:30 p.m. a female student was the victim of an armed robbery. The victim was walking to her car on Cherry Street between the Guggenheim Building and the Engineering Science Building. The perpetrators were in a blue, 4-door Honda Accord that was reported stolen near the Love Building earlier in the day. The vehicle, which has since been recovered, is also reported to have been involved in another incident in the Atlanta area. No arrests have been made.

The suspect was described as a dark-skinned black male, approximately 5’5″ and in his early 20s. He has a slim build, dark brown eyes and an afro-style haircut. He was wearing a dark colored, zip-up, hooded sweatshirt. There is no description of the second suspect because he did not get out of the car. Please notify the Georgia Tech Police Department at 404-894-2500 if you have any information about criminal activity on campus. Individuals may also submit crime tips anonymously through the GTPD Web site: www.police.gatech.edu.

Today’s incident is another reminder that everyone should remain vigilant, be aware of their surroundings and take every precaution to prevent becoming a victim. For more information about crime prevention, visit the GTPD Web site.

Take every precaution to prevent becoming a victim?  That would be a felony in this state, Dean Stein.  Maybe Georgia should follow the lead of Utah and de-criminalize adult students bearing arms for self defense.  This gun ban stops the law abiding, but gun bans obviously do not stop those who prey on the law abiding.
