We have seen a surge in violent activity on campuses around the country over the last few years.
The latest is an incident at Lincoln University, located near Oxford, PA.
According to reports, a student was fatally stabbed after a fight broke out inside a residence hall on campus.
Remember when kids settled their differences by “offering” someone out?
You went outside, fought with your fists, and shook hands and became friends afterward.
Today, guns and knives and bottles and chains get brought into the action.
Sadly, this escalation is costing young lives, with the latest being a 21-year-old student.
The student was pronounced dead after being taken to Thurgood Marshall Living and Learning Center.
There were two additional students that were wounded during the altercation.
Both of them have been treated and released.
The police did not release the identities of anyone involved.
Parents send their children to college to learn and have a great time before they have to enter the real world, not to die.
To that point, Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan stated, “This is every parent’s nightmare.
“We extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones impacted as a result of this tragedy.”
The university stated, “We are deeply saddened by the incident that occurred on campus last night.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
“We take the safety of our students seriously and are working with local authorities as there is an ongoing investigation.”
Lincoln University is the “nation’s first degree-granting Historically Black College and University.”
