“WAIT, Rapist, I’m supposed to run to the safe zone,” screams a would-be raped female college student at the University of North Carolina. Do you really think the rapist will take responsibility for his actions in that moment and allow her to run to the safe zone especially when she can identify him?
So just what does a “rapist taking responsibility” look like? Rehabilitation is certainly an option but that’s long after he’s caught and in the prison system before that process can begin. Or do you suppose a criminal with a rapist mentality will seek out professional help before he acts out his crimes? Are these suggestions really coming from higher education professionals?
In Nevada, a bill introduced on Feb. 13 has been nicknamed “Amanda’s Law,” after Amanda Collins, a former University of Nevada, Reno student who was raped in 2007 in a parking lot near the campus police department. Her attacker was eventually convicted for raping three women, one of whom he killed. Collins has testified before several state legislatures, arguing that her assault could have been prevented if she were allowed to have her gun on campus.
“My University is and was a ‘gun-free zone,'” Collins said during an interview with 48 Hours’ Crimesider. “But that didn’t stop my attacker from carrying a gun.“Collins, who was licensed to have a concealed weapon, wasn’t carrying the gun because it was forbidden on campus.
The CrimeSider staff at CBS news did a great job covering more of Amanda’s story so be sure to check it out. And did you know that Amanda was raped at gunpoint in a gun-free “safe zone” about 50 feet away from the campus police, whose office was closed at the time she was raped?
Why are College Administrators comfortable with their solutions to prevent sexual assault on campus? Or are they?
