    • Fail #3

      Apparently Columbia's own students is its worst enemy. I mean, students, or should I say thugs, claiming to have accidentally forgotten their ID? That's the oldest trick in the book! If anything, this attack was probably in self-defense!

      Way to go Public Safety.

    Add to that the store owner who shot 4 would be robbers on 125th and it looks like crime is making a comeback around the area.

    Two years out of college and the area's already gone to shit. Though the incident in Harlem does not count. Let's not fudge our neighborhoods, here.
