omg, I need all the information right now, regardless of how accurate or useful it is!

Several days later and subby still isn't clear on the suspects having been unarmed
Or is Knifepoint the name of a location on campus?  Because why would people keep going there?!

I'm all for accuracy in my alerts, but in cases like this I wouldn't mind if you gave me something to work with.

Typical ODU fail...god damn campus is in the middle of the ghetto. I always felt like I was going to get robbed leaving there as my classes didn't end til 11 PM, sometimes later if I went to study...

I was wondering myself why this rated an alert. Was the suspect threatening to kill or slash lots of people? In that case, an alert would be good. If there were a police standoff it would also be good to keep people away. If it was just someone mugged at knife point (which is what happened), it seems like it would be more important to get an accurate description of the guy with the knife before sending the alert.

Where are you getting the info that there was a knife involved?  I don't see that in the article...

Doesn't matter, we need 18-22 yro's forming a crazed mob and patrolling the campus with their phones set to lantern or flashlight while brandishing any sharp objects they can find as soon as possible.

No mention of whether they are hatless.

You missed the part where the knife was described as a Smith & Wesson .38 AK-47.

To be fast, you must sacrifice accuracy, or, to be clearer, certainty.

Most warnings don't need more than "AVOID THIS AREA. Here's what first responders are doing"

It sounds like you were always cautious there anyway, so this could have been safely included in the weekly police blotter in the school newspaper.

Give them a break. It takes a lot of work covering up rape charges against star athletes.

We had someone calling in threats to our University regarding a big event that weekend, and campus police didn't send an alert for over 24 hours.

Thankfully nothing happened because they found the person making the threats, but I still think people should have been alerted to possible Bad Things a little sooner.

He was also carrying a loaded pitbull.
