    @Bernie I hope the investigation continues in a most intelligent manner.those killers just become video cams in the area from Amsterdam av to st nicholas av, on the east edge of the park. The vids should be scanned not only the day of the incident but for a month or so before to get a list of suspects .
    Harassing non university people on or near campus because of your fears will not prevent additional incidents nor find the perps in ms majors death.

    @Anonymous Remember. If you see someone who doesn’t look like they belong on campus or is suspiciously lurking near campus, call the police. It’s not “racist”, it’s common sense. Better to be safe given the violent acts certain people are committing in the area.

      @Anonymous dear reader,

      Please DON’T call the police if you ASSUME somebody doesn’t belong. This is called profiling. However, if somebody ACTS suspiciously, please reach out to public safety [ (212) 854-2797 ]. It’s sad that you began with the assumption that whoever ‘lurks’ will be of any specific race.

      Be mindful as we grieve.
