Lane College
« on: September 25, 2013, 09:32:42 PM »
Please keep LC in your prayers. Crime has been non stop all month, robberies, assaults, and even a shooting. Today a professor was arrested for online soliciting with a minor. Praying to God something will be done to stop this madness. Our administration refuses to answer questions and emails from the press and alumni. It is definitely time for new leadership at LC.

Hopefully the BOT will hold the admin accountable for the downturn in events at Lane.

Is this stuff happening right on campus? Is it students? What are the details?

This is true on a lot of campuses.  Praying for Lane, its students, administration and staff.  Also praying that our people can rise up and stop this foolishness.  We're destroying our own at a far more cataclysmic rate than ever before.

While I joke about Lane a lot I really hate that this is happening there.  :(   One question though, are most of the culprits students or otherside folks????

The robberies are being done by people in the area. The assaults are being done by students and people in the neighborhood. There is no fence or barrier that seperates Lane from the neighborhood so anyone can walk onto the campus and do anything at any given time. Parents are slowly withdrawing their kids from the school which I can't blame them at this point. Dr. McClure is close knit with the administration and this has been an issue for the past few years but it has gotten worse. The Jackson Sun has reported up to 20 assault and robbery calls last week...smh. You can read a few articles from The Jackson Sun from last week on their website at www.jacksonsun.com.

For some odd reason, some alumnus don't wanna see change even if it means our school shutting down. I don't know what they see in McClure. He might have saved Lane back in the 90s but it's 2013, he's in his 70s and his time is up. If something isn't done soon, homecoming is gonna get ugly.

Awhile back the Jackson police offered services by patrolling the campus more closely but McClure told them no. Who does that?? Lane only has low wage unarmed security guarding it's campus. I know currently the Alumni President, Dr. LaSimba Gray, and others are working hard to push the issue of safety and security at Lane. Right about now, I don't see the need to make a trip up there for homecoming with all of that going on. I might just save my money and go to Texas Southern's homecoming that weekend.

I have a serious problem with anybody who doesn't want to provide the proper safety needed to protect the students and faculty on your campus.

This is a part of the growth and evolution the African American community is going  through right now. Change is happening fast and some of us are having a real hard time dealing with the new normal. Gone are the days when African Americans existed as an invisible minority in this country. We are now under a microscope and are being scrutinized like never before. It's time for the entire community to adjust accordingly.
