Maybe if KSU stopped giving out scholarships to students without a functioning cerebral cortex, the number of attacks would go down.

Must have been another black on student crime. The media silence on the perp is deafening.

I live not to far from where all this stuff is going on. I am not feeling to safe at the moment. Violence has gone down according to police?? Have they been here lately or are they on another world? Yes the bars really do keep a very close eye on id's but that is because they keep getting shut down for underage drinking. But the problem does not lie at the bars themselves, most of the problems are the drinking and drugs at the houses. I went down the street last year and noticed police covering the area from at least 5 different places as well as the sheriffs, deputies, and fire all with riot gear. Here a bunch of parties got out of control and spilled into the streets. Safe, bah. 2 deaths, stabbings, beatings, robberies, etc has made me wonder if I should move. This used to be a peaceful town were everyone was nice and mellow. You didn't have to worry about getting robbed, raped, or beaten if you wanted to get walk down to the bar and get a quick drink. Wake up you idiot police, it has gotten bad.

AS A CONCERNED PARENT AND CITIZEN, MAYBE KENT STATE SHOULD LOOK AT THE COMMON DENOMINATOR OF WHERE ALL THESE ATTACKS ARE HAPPENING:
FRATERNITY HOUSES!! KENT STATE NEEDS TO CRACK DOWN ON CHECKING THESE HOUSES OUT - ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE ARE PARTIES GOING ON.

Mari you have no idea what your talking about. The two deaths had absolutely nothing to do with fraternities. Actually some of the fraternity brothers are the ones responsible for keeping the two who beat Chris Kernich(sorry if i spelled the last name wrong) there until police arrived. Other than that they had nothing to do with fraternities Chris was coming back from the bars he was never even in a frat house and the perps were from Akron. The only thing that happen in a fraternity house was recently a brother and another person being stabbed when they tried to help a girl getting beaten by her boyfriend who pulled a knife out. Mari why don't you get your facts straight before you try and blame fraternities for the incidents when they were the "good guys" in all situations that occurred. Don't be ignorant.

Yes, there has been recent violence on campus. The enitre body should not have to suffer as a whole. Parents, Kent State is a college campus. Bad things are bound to happen, Bad things have been happening, Bad thing will happen. I personally know the people that were at the last attack. Yes it did happen at a " Frat" house. The violence came into the house and the trouble makers were asked to leave. The " Frat" guys did not start this, it came to their doorstep wrapped up in underage abuse. It is all the underage drinking and drug abuse that has been plauging the campus as of late. I live near campus and it is violent there too. However, my parents raised me right. I know the rights from wrongs. If your students are striving to keep out of these problems then support them, let them deduct their own means. All in All, I agree that the violence needs to stop and soon. Lets not compromise education and feed the fear of violence.
