A Parent’s Reaction

When I first saw the pictures of the “BOMB” it reminded me of something that I might see in a Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon. Then I read the story in The Tech and discovered that campus police were notified at 3 a.m. that the bomb was fake. I can think of only two possibilities for the actions of the campus police. The first is that they do not “know their beat.” The second is that there must be some friction between the students and the campus police that would cause them to disregard what is an obvious “hack” and try to embarrass the students. I believe that the campus police chief should investigate and take steps to improve what may be a strained relationship between the student body and the campus police department.
