GSU was never like this back in my day. What’s happening to our schools and cities? This is disheartening.

Working around campus has felt less and less safe over the months. Hope they really mean it about upping the security.

So now they’re “pledging to increase security”? Should’ve done that a long time ago, if you ask me.

Another incident that highlights the need for stricter gun control laws, maybe then we wouldn’t have so many shootings.

Not surprised, that RaceTrac has always been sketchy. Hope they catch those responsible soon.
