    Default Gunman on my campus

    So - I was told midway through my Calc class today that we had to evacuate due to a gunman on campus and I was really scared. So everybody just panicked and ran out of the classroom...

    Left the class and ran to a friend's dorm where I stayed for the past few hours and saw this all over the news (TV). The good thing is, I am okay, so for all you Long Islanders who heard this on the news I'd like to let you all know that I am safe.

    Obviously now anyone dressed in all black is labelled a threat? Johnny Cash would be so proud of how far society has come.

    Well, I just spoke to a friend who was in the cafeteria during the time the incident happened and he was quite terrified.

    In my day, the only weapon we carried on campus was a sharp #2 pencil on test day. What the hell happened to our young people?

    I don't know, who in their right mind would take out a gun in the middle of a crowded cafeteria?

    Yeah, the hippie campus bombings in the 60s never happened, like the man landing on the moon.

    It's the instant fame that comes with doing something horribly wrong. If the event wasn't glorified in the media, this fashion of violence might cease. Mass violence turns a nobody into a bad and famous somebody.
