I guess most of us can figure out why. Just walk around campus for about an hour and you will realize it has nothing to do with the ISU cops, just the type of students ISU recruits.

Ever pass a bus stop near student housing on 3d street? You'd swear you were in a foreign country.

Their data doesn't even include this years murder at the Bally by an ISU student. Or the same guys attempted murder of two other people.

Wonder if we'll rise on the list next year?

Sounds like you don't go to college. ISU is located in the heart of Terre Haute, a very high poverty city. If you put ISU in the outskirts of Terre Haute like Ivy Tech, Rose Hulman, and Saint Mary's, then I guarantee that the crime would fall off.

The Bally of all places is located on campus, and any fight that breaks out, outside of the bar is considered to be on ISU's property.

Just think how high they'd be on the list had they not fudged the numbers! It's well known that they underreport serious crimes as lesser offenses.
