          This did not happen Monday. The SFASU alert system sent out the info on Sunday night at 9:45pm. I thought the paper would have posted it sooner. The SFA is so close to the Raguet neighborhood it makes me a little nervous with the activites over the last couple years. It was also Thursday afternoon many shots were fired on a street behind us in the Raguet area of Millard or Mr.Henry. I personally called the police and never heard or read another word. ALthough the police informed me that many persons of this area had called about shots fired from a gun.

          I really wish that the NPD had some jurisdiction over the UPD and campus because sometimes I think that the UPD is in over their heads. I have personally been involved with situations that would have been handled better but the NPD than the UPD, seems like they need some assistance even though I recognize the lack of feasibility.

          Complain, complain, complain, complain, complain, complain, complain, complain police. Why state you know it was on campus, and then complain about NPD or the NCSO doing their jobs. At least comment on whom would be responsible for keeping campus safe, and not generalize crime prevention for these two agencies that are not jurisdictionally responsible for SFASU’s campus. I guess NPD or NCSO should arrest every unsavory/suspicious character around the outskirts of campus or in the county and “violate their civil rights” to prevent all armed robberies? Be realistic, the robbery had nothing to do with NPD or NCSO, and just because the car has not been found does not mean that anyone is not doing their jobs. At least you did finally admit to a need for keeping drunks off the road. Please enlighten me of your theory of crime and punishment to deter theft related crimes in Nacogdoches County. I am all ears. Maybe I will tell my police buddies how to do their job by your standards and the crime rates will plummet.

          While the NPD and NCSO look high and low for drunks the armed robberies continue to plague the streets of Nacogdoches County. This may have happened on campus but it is only the latest in a string of either burglaries and robberies in the Nacogdoches area. While I recognize that getting drunks off the road is needed thieves are in one way or another carrying the whole county off every night.
