Um, okay?

So, a little over a week ago we had a man killed, another shot, and several robberies of pedestrian, all in the UK area, and the UK police announce that they are going to crack down on Jaywalkers???

Mind you, driving, walking, and biking near a university is always a litte daunting, partly because of the near-chaos of people lost who don't bother to pay attention to others, but still, maybe this isn't the best timing, guys.

In the twenty years I've been in and around UK, jaywalking is pretty much a constant. The other crimes, however, aren't. The campus has always attracted some crime, mostly thefts, but it seems there have been more violent crimes lately. And that's disturbing. Isn't that more important?
