This isn't the first time some scumbag has tried to rape someone on campus, but what bothers me is that students say that they still feel safe because the campus is so friendly.
My point in all of this is still the same: personal security is up to the individual, not some benign security guard you've never met, and not a sworn officer of the law who is well protected in the guard house with his shiny new rifle.
Update: Look at the bottom of the article for this gem:
I highly doubt the class involves proper instruction in the use of a modern, portable self-defense tool that negates the strength of full grown attackers. Just for fun, stick that link in the address bar and see if you get anything.
The University of Mary Washington offers a 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense self-defense class. The program is free for male and female students and is available to area residents for a fee.
