    Armed individual at Phi Delta Theta fratnerity

    Across from Moody Music Building. University sent out an alert but vague on details other than staying away from the area. Just a heads up on those with students on campus.

    Initial chatter is that it was part of a domestic dispute... the husband of one of the cooks at the fraternity house.

    Armed individuals are everywhere. What's interesting about this one?

    I believe - and this is just stuff I've heard from others around campus - that he attempted to discharge the weapon but it jammed.

    i would guess that if the UPD released the alert that he was probably brandishing it and they were called.

    We need knife control in this country.
    “For just in proportion as a people are ignorant, stupid, debased, corrupt, exposed to violence within and dangers from without, the power necessary for government to possess in order to preserve society against anarchy and destruction becomes greater and greater and individual liberty less and less, until the lowest condition is reached, when absolute and despotic power becomes necessary on the part of the government and individual liberty extinct."
