CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Campus police will begin carrying firearms next year following a decision by Shippensburg University President Anthony F. Ceddia. "I've turned around 180 degrees on this matter. I always believed the campus is a sanctuary where people should feel safe and protected," Ceddia said Thursday of his decision, which was announced last week. Ceddia said he made the decision earlier this summer after reviewing a report by a committee he appointed last year to study the issue.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Campus police at Shippensburg University are equipped with mace and handcuffs, but not nightsticks and handguns. That could change under a proposal to arm officers that was the subject of an open campus meeting Thursday. University President Anthony Ceddia appointed a committee late last year to study the possibility of arming the 14 campus police officers. A report is being prepared, but no decision will be made before Ceddia returns from a sabbatical in May, according to Committee Chairman Joel Zullinger.

ANNAPOLIS -- From time to time, a student applying to enroll at Hagerstown Community College will admit to having a criminal history. Henry Gautney, the chief of Campus Police and Safety at HCC, says he would like to know the specifics behind any criminal behavior before allowing a potentially dangerous student onto campus -- especially in light of the massacre at Virginia Tech in 2007. On Wednesday, Gautney asked members of Washington County's delegation to the Maryland General Assembly to support a bill giving HCC's officers additional police powers.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A student wearing a dark suit and a ski mask opened fire Tuesday with an assault rifle on the University of Texas campus before fleeing into a library and fatally shooting himself. No one else was hurt. The shooting began near a fountain in front of the UT Tower -- the site of one of the nation's deadliest shooting rampages more than four decades ago, when a gunman ascended the clock tower and fired down on dozens of people. Within hours of Tuesday's gunfire, the school issued an all-clear notice, but the university remained closed, and the area around the library was still considered a crime scene.

The systemic failure of Penn State University to do the right thing in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal is so mammoth and widespread that it's hard to get your head around it. The more layers that are peeled back, the more rotten the onion. Despite being a longtime newspaper person who has seen and read all forms of human depravity, it still curdles my stomach to read what allegedly went on behind closed doors with Sandusky, the former Penn State football assistant coach now charged with 40 counts of abusing young boys.
