(Excerpt) Read more at startribune.com ...
Typical Strib poll. Split the vote, skew the results.
This is from FT. Worth, TX
TARRANT COUNTY COLLEGE POLICE DEPARTMENT
This is for reference only, and is not intended to create any undue alarm.
The sole purpose of this is to heighten the public's awareness of a criminal activity that has been threatened on Tarrant County College property or that is relevant to our college environment.
The TCC Police Department would like to inform our campus community that a barely discernable, small in print, message was found scratched on the stall of a men's room on the second floor of the library at the Northeast Campus. It stated, "There will be a shooting here on April 19th." The Police Department takes all threats and indications that harm may be done seriously. To this end, additional safety and security measures have been activated and will continue as long as deemed appropriate to preserve the safety and security of our campus community.
The police department will prosecute, at the highest level, any person who falsely initiates, communicates or circulates information, or takes an action that places any person in fear of injury.
If you have any information that would assist us in identifying the person or persons responsible for this action, please contact the Tarrant County College Police Department Communication Division at:
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
It’s worse than that. I voted yes, closed out and voted yes again and the yes count did not rise. Closed out, deleted all cookies from the startribune and voted yes again. Yes remained stuck on 239.
NO GNUS ON CAMPUS!!!
If I understand you correctly, I agree. The poll totally sidesteps 2nd A. rights concerning guns on a campus.
Yes 411 35.7 %
Only if the gun owner is well screened and highly trained 277 24.1 %
No 461 40.1 %
Total Votes 1149
