    Well, c’mon, Teach: This is exactly the kind of public safety report that citizens are fully entitled to file. It can be a very frightening experience when a silent man approaches a woman without introduction, lingers, and then flees into the night. I can’t imagine what might be inappropriate about this kind of report.

  2. Oh, I’m not going to disagree that women can be in danger, and that there should public safety notifications. It’s just in this case, it seems a bit overblown. The guy made no threatening gestures to her. Could be the way it was written, too. I can’t count the number of times that could have been me, and all I was doing was walking.

    But, yeah, I can understand the danger. Back at ECU, some friends of mine who were in a different fraternity beat the snot out of a guy who was being threatening towards a woman. They happened to be smoking a joint outside the library in the bushes, and caught the interchange, and jumped in.

    Teach in the last sentence who is the “they” you are referring to ?

  4. The they is the campus police. And, yes, I was being over the top.
