Armed campus cop shoots, kills valedictorian

“A Texas university student has been shot dead by a campus police officer during a routine traffic stop. Robert Cameron Redus, 23, was killed when Corporal Chris Carter, 35, opened fire on him in the early hours of Friday morning a few blocks away from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio where Redus studied, set to graduate in May.” Thanks to a reader for the link.

I wonder if UO’s police stayed away from the snowball battle because they were wise enough to understand the potential for escalation, now that President Gottfredson has given them guns?

Speaking of which, UO’s overall police expenditures have more than doubled in 5 years. A bit higher than the $66K estimate VP for Finance Frances Dyke gave when testifying to the Oregon legislature:
