“While colleges and universities may properly adopt policies and provide student services that reduce the likelihood such incidents will occur on their campuses, they are not liable for the criminal wrongdoing of mentally-ill third parties, regardless of whether such conduct might be in some sense foreseeable,” she wrote.

And there goes the budget for Security across campuses in California. But don’t worry, remember that the new law signed by Gov. Jerry brown will make sure no shootings will occur in the high houses of superior educashion.

Go, feel safe now!

  1. So this means that it’s free reign to commit crimes on campus by anyone who’s ever had an IEP or been diagnosed w/ ADHD, depression, etc. even if it’s ‘foreseeable’?

    1. How do you equate those two conditions with “foreseeable violence”? You may want to review the Tarasoff decision https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarasoff_v._Regents_of_the_University_of_California and any of the five (5!) SCOTUS decisions regarding there being no duty or obligation for the police to protect anybody unless there are very specific conditions met.

      It’s a balancing act between competing rights. And we are stuck in the middle. Knowing that is what usually is the driving force for some people to take the responsibility for their own safety and self defense; others who continue to spout “The police will protect us” will find out that the primary job of the police is to come and draw a chalk outline around you dead body and then try to figure out how it happened, and if they have the time and energy, who done it.

      BTW – do you know that gun rights bloggers (even former bloggers) are considered to be sources of “foreseeable violence”? Call up your local Fusion Center and ask if you don’t believe me.

      stay safe.

    1. Yep. It’s always the gun manufacturers’ fault, unless it’s the NRA’s. It can’t be the colleges’ fault for seeing the signs and not acting. It can’t be the families’ fault for seeing the signs and not acting. It can’t be the lawmakers’ fault; they’re immune. It can’t be the police officers’ fault; they have no duty to protect you (but somehow are expected to have every obligation to keep you from protecting yourself) and they’re immune. It can’t be the perpetrators’ fault; they were mentally ill, or came from a broken home, or grew up in poverty, etc.

      Therefore, it must be the guns’ fault (and by extension, those who built the guns).

      They couldn’t pass a law openly declaring the guns or manufacturers to be at fault, so instead they’re whittling away at all the other possibilities.
