    "What in the world was these two ladies doing out at this hour of the morning? Ladies certain times of the nights and early morning is not a good idea to be out there and alone"

    Victim blaming... they have every right to be out at that hour. 2 am is not even late in college. Would this be less tragic if it happened at 2pm? I know one of the assaulted women and I know she wouldn't think so.
    And please do NOT bring Eve Carson into this. Students have to stay up late all the time to finish our work and she is not responsible for her death. Her MURDERERS are. Why don't we place the blame on those who broke the law!?

    4:50 a.m., a man hit two females about 2 a.m.

    What in the world was these two ladies doing out at this hour of the morning? Ladies certain times of the nights and early morning is not a good idea to be out there and alone. How about think about the late Ms. Eve Carson. She did the same but did not live to tell her story. Can you even learn from her story. Its a dangerous world we now live in. Be cautious and very safe. Look around you when out. Don't be out those hours when you don't have to. Call a cab to get home safely.

    I remember some college kid somewhere killing himself when Bush was re-elected. Talk about a sore loser. But liberals tend to be a little over dramatic at times.

    Kinda like the guy in florida who just killed himself because of Obama?

  • Crumps Br0ther Nov 14, 11:08 a.m.

    Thats taking being a sore loser to new heights of being pathetic. May be why your candidate didn't win. The perpetual hate being spewed in the blogs by the extremes of your party has soured the entire party to many independents.

    You mean... the same kids who voted for 4 more years of socialist policies? Those ones?

    Wait, I thought Cornell West, a card carrying socialist called Obama a Rockefeller Republican? how can he be socialist if the socialists don't think he's socialist?

    lol

    Anyway, I'm glad they used their alert system properly. We had a shooting near campus two weeks ago; and they called, texted and set off emergency lights all over campus. Good to know they can react quickly to things.

    @Native NC Girl: I think the picture takes care of your question. Unless, you are disgruntled about the headline not mentioning it.

    I am not the least bit surprised that the smartest kids from NC dont see things the same way you do.

    "Much to do about nothing..." offthegrid7165

    An armed man attacking innocent people is far from nothing. Shame on you.

    "Campus area crime needs to stop. The criminals that hang out there have absolutely no business being there except to cause trouble and pose threats to the students and residents of Chapel Hill." - Native NC gal

    I live and work in downtown CH and can tell you that there are a lot of "street people" that hang out and roam E. Franklin near UNC. They typically only cause trouble among themselves.

    There are always police or ambulances down there because of fights, assaults, and drunkenness. Rarely are students or others involved or threatened.

    It is a sad fact of life in CH...

    The headline doesn't state which UNC campus.

    Yep, those kids and the rest of the majority of the USA. Can't argue with the ballot box... unless your guy lost, huh?

    Reading is fundamental - yes. nothing like a bunch of stressed out, hung-over, immature armed kids. That’s not a recipe for disaster. cantstandgoloanymore

    Same around here in the Duke campus area in Durham Reader,the predators choose their targets wisely.

    Maybe they need to rethink the ban on students being allowed to pack pistolas on campus?

    The feral people know the students are unarmed and make easy targets.

  • tspicchiali Nov 14, 8:40 a.m.

    the shooting wasn't on campus....it was at a Franklin St. business. I work at UNC and no one here even knows this happened.

    Nice photo but honestly, what does it have to do with the story? No photos of Franklin street?
