State-mandated victim zone: Student assaulted in OSU dorm room
Columbus' NBC4i.com is reporting that Ohio State University police are searching for a man who assaulted a student in his dormitory room on Wednesday morning. Police said the student interrupted a theft in his room at about 10:50 a.m. in a W. 12th Avenue dormitory and was assaulted when the suspect fled.
The suspect is described by the news station as black, between 18 and 20 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a medium build. Police told NBC he was wearing a red shirt and black pants. He has very short hair or hair in braids, police said.
Why does the state of Ohio refuse to recognize the needs of college students to protect themselves? Why is the life of an 21-year-old college student on a campus like OSU's any less valuable and in need of protection than when she is off-campus? Why are 18-year-olds any less trusted with firearms on college campuses than they are when serving in our armed forces?
