From WMC-TV5: University of Memphis officials have a plan of action to fight crime after two students are attacked. Students and faculty will start seeing security changes on campus. One of the most visible changes will be officers patrolling campus with their blue lights on. The campus is also taking a more visible we're-watching-you approach to fighting crime. Dr. Shirley Raines, U of M president, said, "We want not only to deter the criminals, but we want to also make sure we have the perception we're a very safe campus because we are a safe campus." And as we all know, nothing says "safety" like police cars patrolling with their blue lights on. Okay, that actually says, "Some dangerous felon just escaped from jail," but what the heck. -- Chris Davis
