Cognitive Dissonance Files: Victim of armed robbery at dorm was targeted, campus still safe, police chief says

KALAMAZOO, MI — The student who was robbed at gunpoint inside a Western Michigan University dorm Thursday was targeted, according to WMU’s police chief.

“It was not random. He was specifically targeted. The individual was targeted because of a legal business he was involved in. The suspect knew he had products and proceeds in the dorm,” said Chief Scott Merlo.

I really don’t have the polite words to express the disgust one feels when you are insulted like this. Two individuals managed to access a secured building on the middle of the week, on an afternoon, wearing masks, go to the fourth floor, rob somebody at gunpoint and leave…but all is well?

The incident is the third armed robbery this school year at WMU. In October, two students were robbed between the Sindecuse Health Center and Sangren Hall by suspects armed with a handgun. Then in February, a male student was held up at gunpoint in LeFevre Hall.

  1. Gun free campus, right? Oh wait, the criminals simply disregarded the rules, who’d a thunk it. One has to wonder if the same bandits are repeating their acts.

  2. Maybe cop is knowing that crooks have an absolute 100% accuracy in the hit addresses, unlike cops who need to be supposedly vetted for a warrant before going on one of their hits and still fail on occasion.

    IOW – you are safer with the crooks, straight from the cops mouth.

  3. Accessing a secure building is so easy a child could do it. Get a hot bag, save a empty pizza box to put your gat in, get either a shirt or a hat from a local pizza place. Someone, within a few minutes will let you in. Works every time.

    We deliver to a lot of secure buildings. Usually you will get let in pretty quick. After all, you’re delivering a pizza, and who doesn’t trust the pizza delivery guy.
