Marquette Backs Off: Reveals the Race of Armed Robbers
From a Public Safety Alert sent out shortly after midnight last night:
An armed robbery was reported at 11:50 p.m., August 30. An alumna and a student were in the 800 block of North 22nd Street when they were approached by two males who showed a weapon and demanded cash. One of the subjects took the alumna’s purse, then both fled northbound on foot on North 22nd Street then westbound on West Kilbourn Avenue. Both subjects are described as African American males in their late teens or early twenties, clean shaven with short hair. The first subject, who was armed, was described as wearing a gray hoodie with blue lettering and dark shorts. The second subject was described as wearing a dark hoodie and dark shorts.It’s good that Marquette has backed off a silly, excessively politically correct policy.
But the University’s failure to honestly acknowledge the policy still leaves a bad odor.
