    Today my daughter, an FSU student who lives in a dorm in the central part of campus, is visiting a psychiatrist who will assist her in her mental health withdrawal from FSU. The problem: she is scared for her life at FSU. On Sunday, a weekend during which four robberies, attempted murder and other buglaries and assaults took place within a 1-mile range of her home, she advised her friend to remove the contents of his wallet before they left to eat at a local restaurant. She wanted him to have something to hand over to any possible assailants so they would not shoot him for failing to hand over "personal property" which is what every criminal commands their student victims do before their armed demands. I am getting my 19-year-old beautiful daughter out of this otherwise great academic school because I want her alive. This situation really is a CRISIS which demands immediate attention. It's similar to the situation when Danny Rolling was murdering off students at UF 20 years ago.

    Blacks are systematically attacking whites. Why are we not charging these crimes as hate crimes? If the reaces were different, they would be charges as a hate crime and the crime rate would be lower as it stands now only whites get the stiffer sentenace and if such a policy was in place for blacks only they would riot in the streets and scream racism.

    Ten Dead 40 shot In Chicago over the weekend.Last year, two Chicago Sun-Times reporters won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of a similarly violent Chicago weekend in 2008 -- when 40 people were shot and seven killed in just 59 hours. Tallahassee has been under siege by punk thugs for years now, nothing new. What FSU needs is a group like the "Guardian Angels" to walk the campus and travel together to help the students from these vile beast that call themselves part of the human race.

      What we need is a study to show how many of these criminals were welfare babies. Then we need to rethink our decision to pay people to produce fatherless children, which is what the welfare program does. Why do we want to continue to sub stain the welfare program when it is clearly causing so much havoc in our society. My argument is that if they did the study, they would find the welfare program is producing more criminals than it does law abiding citizens. My question is why then in this time of such high national debt are we continuing to fund that program rather then use the money to pay off some of the national debt we have. I feel it is because there are some that our trying to destroy capitalism and the only way one can do that is to bankrupt them. Think about it. Not everyone is for Capitalism just bcz u r. If you were one of the ones that wanted to destroy it How would you do it?

        Yes because all of we single mothers prayed for our children's fathers to leave us alone to raise our children. I mean why on earth would anyone want or need a father around to help us raise our kids? It's all the mothers' fault the fathers ran off and left us with nothing, right? Well take another look, some of us who raise our kids alone are doing quite well and paying into the tax system and raising honor roll students now, even though we may have had to get a little help in the beginning. There should be a better way of weeding out people who abuse the system without punishing those who use it for what it is intended for and then become contributing members of society. Not all mothers who have been on welfare are raising more deadbeats.

    WCTV should just keep a form letter style armed robbery article for FSU. That way they can just fill in the date and location of the incident.

      The black criminal started with the racial bs when he robbed the white civilain. Rob your own race and you will not have to worry about the "racial bs"

      If white men were robbing and killing blacks like this you can bet your sweet @$$ it would be a racial issue. Only when blacks rob kill and steal they have a plethora of backing ans support from the local vocal goons like yourself that think there isnt a problem. Black males cross the racial threshold 100 to 1 when it comes to violent acts like this.

    Lets have a vigilante night at FSU. That way, all our patriotic gun nuts can ex ercise their rights and seek out the thugs they all wish for while serving their community at the same time.

          Sure do! How about let all the "patriotic gun nuts", asn every other law abiding citizen, actually exercise their God-given, inherent, Constitutionally protected rights, and arm themselves anyplace they go. The vast majority(99.9999999%) of "patriotic gun nuts" couldn't care less about seeking out thugs and being vigilantes, they just want to be left alone to go about their everyday lives, without getting robbed, raped, and beaten. Is that acceptable to you?

    You need to put some plain clothes officers out there posing as students and start shooting these scabs.

    What are we going to do about all of this crime on FSU's campus? Is that why they call them "criminoles"? Spike Lee needs to make a movie about FSU and call it "Crime Daze".
