    when will Public Safety stop capitalizing the 'i' in everything please it's killing me

  2. Update 10:41 am

    April fools! we meant black male/6'/baggy pants/jordans.

  3. Misleading title

    So "bag" in the title is part of a compound noun, and not a verb, huh?

    This shit sucks! You aren't safe at any time of day here anymore. I never see as many cops here as I see downtown, and while I understand that, you'd think Columbia would pay some of their gigantic endowment to increase security. More cameras, signs about there being cameras, foot patrols, and a general increase in visibility. I almost never see cops out at night even on weekends when people are the most vulnerable. That or we need a vigilante!
