Increase student safety

      Cleveland, OH

UPDATE: Another robbery: 11:30pm robbery on OSU campus at Frambes and High St.

UPDATE: Another robbery: 4pm robbery on OSU campus directly outside OSU Office of Legal Affairs, feet away from student dorms. 

University and police documents show that there have been 12 victims of robberies near the OSU campus since the beginning of October; this is unacceptable.  

The image above shows, Aaron Peacock, who was assaulted and robbed Sunday morning near the intersection of 18th Avenue and Summit Street. -The Lantern,  Monday, November 14, 2011

"The man hit Barnett [another victim] several times in the head with the butt of a gun, knocking him to the ground. The robber took $100 in cash, an iPhone and Barnett’s driver’s license and college ID and left him bleeding in an alley just steps from his Neil Avenue apartment."     -The Columbus Dispatch, Sunday November 13, 2011

      For as much money as OSU makes, we can afford to have a police car every two blocks for some safety.
