Dartmouth won´t let woman carry gun
to protect against accused stalker

Los Angeles Times, by Tony Perry

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 8/9/2014 11:08:52 AM

A 20-year-old college student from San Diego has been rebuffed in her request to carry a concealed gun on campus for protection against a man facing criminal charges for stalking and menacing her. Taylor Woolrich had asked officials at Dartmouth College, where she is a junior, for permission to carry the weapon for defense against possible attack by a 67-year-old man facing felony charges in San Diego County Superior Court. Woolrich has a restraining order against Richard Bennett, who is set for a readiness hearing in court next week. Bennett, now in jail, faces charges of stalking, possession

Comments:
Better to be risk being murdered by a known psychopath than to make a liberal uncomfortable, the college administrators say.

The circumstance and the young lady (whose father also happens to be police officer) make this a good civil rights test case.

Come on guys, let´s not be so quick to condemn Dartmouth. I´m sure they´ll let Mr. Bennett, the stalker, know that it´s against their rules to bring a gun on campus.

Looks like Clayton Williams, candidate for Texas Governor against Ann Richards in the 1980s, really was right and the Dems were just playing politics when they took offense at his comment about ´just lay back and enjoy it´. War on Women is leftists more scared of self-defense than protecting women.

Wonder if Dartmouth in the name of diversity has put in requests for a few hundred MS13 gang members coming across Texas border.

Dartmouth is a private university. That means private property.

1. Dartmouth can prohibit fire arms, even free speech or freedom of the press on it´s property, just like any other private property owner.

2. By attending Dartmouth, Taylor Woolrich enters this private property, with full knowledge of the possible danger.

3. For liability purposes, Dartmouth probably should post a warning, about the dangers of entering it´s private property.

A few years back, two Dartmouth professors were killed in a knife attack within their own home by two teens from a nearby town.

Interestingly, prior to that attack, the same perps tried to kill a different family. They had cut the phone line and even dug the graves. They then feigned car trouble and became quite insistent about entering the home to "use the phone". They were finally scared off when the homeowner simply displayed his gun.

I truly believe the perps then chose Hanover, where they would be much less likely to encounter an armed homeowner.

Dartmouth may be private, but if it takes federal money it comes under federal rules.

Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.” Unknown (by me at least)

Instead of opening her mouth she should have just put the piece in her purse and told no one about it. By trying to do the right thing she bought herself increased scrutiny. Now she can´t carry. So her safety is in the hands of the Dartmouth authorities and she should have her lawyer so advise the university administration that should anything happen to her the university will be hit with a multi billion dollar law suit.

Yes, feeling safe is very important - although not as important as actually being safe, of course. But, it´s so nice that they "certainly do everything (they) possibly can" short of allowing anyone to protect themselves. s/

#13 beat me to it.

If she carries a gun (illegally) and had to shoot this guy in self defense, would ANY jury consider convicting her? I doubt that almost any prosecutor would even charge her in that eventuality, knowing that a conviction would not be possible.

Easy choice - alive with some possible legal issues or dead.

As wildfires burned in California, a study by several major environmental groups estimated that climate change could mean that future blazes will be much larger and add billions of dollars to already costly losses. The 46-page study released Tuesday, titled "Flammable Planet: Wildfires and the Social Cost of Carbon," is part of an ongoing project by three groups to examine what it calls the missing risks, such as wildfires, that climate change can make more expensive. The groups are the Environmental Defense Fund, the Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of Law, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Thousands of people have attempted suicide while on an NHS waiting list for psychological treatment, according to a comprehensive new study of mental health services in England. In the latest evidence of a hidden mental health crisis, a coalition of leading charities and medical professionals report that one in 10 patients are waiting for more than a year just to be assessed for treatment, and one in six made an attempt on their life while on a waiting list. GPs report a “huge rise” in the number of mental health conditions, which has coincided with cuts to mental health services

The American who coordinates the Islamic State’s online propaganda efforts was caught on tape by the FBI in 2006 plotting “peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches” from “culinary school” — code for terrorist attacks and training camps. The phone and online conversations give a chilling look inside the head of a homegrown terrorist. The CIA says at least 2,000 of the estimated 31,500 jihadists the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has recruited are from America and other Western nations. Ahmad Abousamra, the ISIS recruiter-propagandist who sits on the FBI’s most-wanted list, communicated with a cell of jihadists in the Boston area.

"More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way
