RICHMOND, Va. -- Police were searching this morning for a group of about 15 young men believed to have committed an assault and a violent robbery in rapid succession on Virginia Commonwealth University's main academic campus in downtown Richmond. Neither victim was seriously injured in the two attacks, which occurred along Shafer Street on the Monroe Park campus about 2:55 a.m. VCU and Richmond police described the assailants as a group of 15 black males between the ages of 17 and 22.

There are no “gangs” in America when a half-white president is in office.

If 15 young WHITE men committed assaults and violent robberies in a BLACK neighborhood this would make the front page of the Washington Post.

The press need to retire the double standard - - the sixties are over.

Holder's people.

These nice young men were no doubt agents of the new Federal Bureau of Redistribution and simply doing their patriotic duty as prescribed by Obama.

And the VCU administration wants to make it illegal to have weapons on campus. You’ll never catch me in Richmond or on the VCU campus unarmed.

People like my son? Working hard for a living, and just getting off work at 2:30 AM? Is he a "half-wit" too? Is there some law that says you must surrender your freedoms after midnight and remain sequestered until sunrise?

Sad that you said what you said, but even more sad that it was needed and true.

I know there are a few, on the right side of this group’s bell curve, who are absolutely embarassed by the large left side.

We have been silenced too long by the race card, stereotyping (which is really identifying a statistical reality), and political correctness and see what it has achieved?

6.5% of our population is responsible for over 50% of all crimes yet it is racist to point it out! NO that is Toure syndrome, playing the race card when you cannot refute the point.

Somebody had to put a campus review together for parents of high school students looking for college campuses with a more realistic view regarding their children’s safety and survival by now.

Wouldn’t you think?

The first attack was on the street corner of my daughter’s apartment at VCU.

I told her that it wasn’t racist to avoid packs of minorities, and that it was better to have people THINK she was being racist, than to get beat up by a violent mob.

VCU is a pretty safe campus, but it is stuck in the middle of a city, and they warn the kids about straying too far away from the campus itself.

In this case, the attacks were within the campus area. School starts on Thursday; no report whether this mob was students or locals.

Well, this just demonstrates that this pack mentality is endemic throughout the nation.

Sounds like this assault. This isn’t that far away from VCU.

Good morning.

And the VCU administration wants to make it illegal to have weapons on campus. You’ll never catch me in Richmond or on the VCU campus unarmed.

I graduated in 1983, and never went on campus unarmed.

That’s on the college campus, and it’s welcome back week. Kids have been arriving — all the freshmen moved in over the weekend, and classes don’t start until thursday, so there are welcome back parties, and I’m sure a lot of the kids are getting back together with their friends and running around. 3am is pretty late at night, and the kids are all warned not to go out after midnight.

The school also has a free escort service if you have to go anywhere. They will send an officer to walk you home, and can even give you rides from off-campus after dark. They are very aware of this.

Unfortunately, VCU is in a big city, and that city has had increasing problems with this type of violence. The mayor and police chief are part of the problem, apparently. But the school includes a lot of kids from families who are unaware of big-city life, and also won’t tolerate this type of violence, and the school knows that and knows it has to do better or it will lose good students and their money.

The place where the attacks happened is on the edge of campus, and there is construction on that first street corner, which means a fence around that property. They just finished a new dorm/apartment complex for students on that block (the first assault was on the street corner near the entrance). That’s my daughter’s apartment. The buildings are very secure — you need a student ID to get through the front door, and there is 24-hour security at the entrance. All guests have to be escorted as well.

Still, my daughter is probably a little shook up right now — we talked about the violence, she had the lectures, but to have a mob attack right outside your dorm on your second day away from home isn’t helpful — we live in a place we can walk at midnight and our only worry is waking someone’s dog and causing a barking riot.

A major part of the orientation presentation is about the dangers of living in a city. It was almost an hour long. They have multiple brochures they hand out. One we were looking at last night has a chart showing when it is dangerous to be out walking, in pie-chart form — midnight to 6am was the “are you kidding me” part of the chart (not literally, just said something like “extremely dangerous”.

As I said in another post, the school has free escort service for people who have to be out at night. They definitely make sure the kids understand that the big city is a REALLY dangerous place, not at all like what you see on TV shows.

"6.5% of our population is responsible for over 50% of all crimes yet it is racist to point it out! NO that is Toure syndrome, playing the race card when you cannot refute the point."

Actually, I'd wager the figure is closer to 2% of the population (black males 13 - 25 years old), causing closer to 80% of violent crime (most violent crimes go unreported).

Probably a fair assessment PowderMonkey and closer to actual percentages than my figures.

I graduated in 1983, and never went on campus unarmed.

I graduated VCU in 1982, lived at various times from 1978 - 1983 on 1500 block of Grove, 1100 block of W. Grace and at Franklin Towers on W. Franklin.

Sure, there was petty crime/theft as on any campus but I never once found a reason to have to be armed at VCU.

Maybe you have confused VCU with VUU?

My daughter was at VCU last year. At UCONN this year.

I graduated VCU in 1982 and I moved to Stamford, CT in 1983.

That’s nice if you want to make fear a control factor, something to chip away at the core of American freedom.

I meant a list of campuses that do not infringe on the Second Amendment nor the individual’s liberty because of a cretin criminal class.

We are degenerating into accepting the mindset of the good guys control the day but the criminals/commies/psychopaths own the night.

Vietnam revisited and that’s not even right.

Good afternoon fellow Ram. I hope you are doing well. How about that Final Four run two years ago?

As you probably know I post with my real name. I graduated School of Business. Even though VCU was a big university at the time, we may have met.

No, I didn't or don't confuse Virginia Union with VCU. I go virtually everywhere that I can armed. Sure, rarely was there a violent or major crime on campus (although there were). But Broad St. was right there, and Church Hill was not far away.

Close but no cigar, eh? I remember when we were such a splash in the Sun-Belt Conference in '81.

As you probably know I post with my real name. I graduated School of Business. Even though VCU was a big university at the time, we may have met.

I was a biology and chemistry double major at the time, so you guys were across Main Street from us. My GF at the time graduated in your class of 1983 with a BA in Marketing. More likely that you would have known her than me.

I worked at the time for E.R. Carpenter Company on "Southside," directly for Stan Pauley, for whom the new business school building is named. Worked all day and went to school at night. Certainly what VCU was/is known for.

True. Since I was a Vet, I worked at McGuire, and the G.I. Bill to pay my way.

Shaka Smart might get us a NCAA title the way J.D. Barnett couldn't.
