    Is there some way I could donate ammunition to the thugs shooting each other? I'd dearly love to see a lot more of it happening.

    I don't know why you act suprised about shooting going on here like this. In Chattahoochee the Mayors son can shoot someone at her house and get locked up. But when she give false statements to police but nothing happen to her. What kind of lesson is this for everyone to see?

    It's obvious that Rick Scott is sending Tea Party thugs to the FAMU campus to disrupt the university with criminal activity because he along with many other white people are jealous of the overwhelming success and safeness of the university as a whole.

    FAMU has a building named after Tookie the Crip founder?

    I graduated from that institution, 90% of the complaints about mis-use of funding, cheating, and the hazing are true. Enough said. Not saying to get rid of the institution, but this is all true.

    I think the negativity surrounding FAMU is an effort to get the school closed and everybody hoping the students will transfer to FSU. I have been reading the paper and listening to the news, and the wrongdoings of FSU are not reported in depth as the things at FAMU. It appears that FAMU has a bull's eye on its back and many people are trying to shut the school down. Maybe they should investigate to see if the people committing the crimes are associated with FAMU or they were brought in to destroy this college because of the positive recognition it has received up until recent months. I think it is time for the supporters of Famu in this country to take a trip to Tallahassee and let the country know they are tired of being put in a bad light.

      Why would anybody want to take a trip to Tallahassee? Why are you suggesting this idea? What did these people ever do to you?

      I think the negativity surrounding FAMU is the Administrations effort to get this school closed so they can set precedence to close the other state funded schools. I think the board feeds the negativity on their school to use it as a reason for why they need more funding...And looked it worked. The beat a fellow student to death and ultimately ended up getting more staff and funding to come up and develop an anti-hazing action plan

The "administration"wants to deliberately bankrupt this capitalist society so they can impose socialism and when that happens FAMU and all the other state funded schools will no longer be as we know it. We take it all for granted, our education system our liberties everything....you can march it is not going to do any good because you think it is the white people that are the ones threatening your liberties....it not. It is the administration.

      I apologize. But there simply is no other way to say this: You are out of your mind. Just for starters you think that FSU wants FAMU students. You could not possibly be more incorrect if you really tried. I know the FSU administration does some profoundly brain dead stuff, but wanting that, is wanting to commit institutional suicide.

      and the Taliban are responsible for the ills of all African males wearing their pants around their ankles walking around holding their pants up with one hand and their junk with the other. Even apes have better manners.

    Someone must be mistaken. All University campuses in Florida are gun free zones. ***sarcasm warning***

      Indeed....we need to barricade FAMU to keep the non-students that are in the band from performing armed robberies at FSU. Well stated Jess!

    I see that it doesn't take much to get you no good, anonymous cowards all excited. We all know that FAMU is the safest university in Tallahassee. Do I need to provide facts?

      Yes. Please provide the facts...just make sure they are independently verifiable.

      Is that due to the fact that most of the students are packing?

        I wish they were all packing to leave! That would be terrific and the crime rate would go way down!
