Our daughter tried to sign-up for one of BYU's self-defense classes this
semester, but they were full with a waiting list a mile long. Funny, since BYU
dropped Fitness for Life & other PE requirements, it doesn't seem to
spend adequate time or money on its Physical Education classes. Isn't the
Majority of our country Obese or Morbidly Obese?? Wonder why....
I seriously believe that BYU should have womens self-defense/ martial arts
training in the quad- boot camp-style. The show of force in Numbers would be
Amazing! Also, pepper stray should be available FREE to all co-eds Now, not
tomorrow. This has been going on for months!!
This has been going on for months. It's a race- Will BYU find the Groper
1st or will 'authorities' find Flight 377 before the Groper's
stopped? The Suspense is killing me.
Take a drive north to BYU Idaho and walk around their campus. They seem to have
worked hard to create a beautiful and safe environment for their students.
How can Chris B be on every comment board - ever. The man must be more than one
man. But he is right the fence idea is silly. Unless you build a
single fence and put the "groper" inside - but I think they call that a
No matter what or when there always seems to be a Chester the molester around
byu. Girls need to be careful and learn to protect themselves . Chester needs
some old fashioned justice when caught
I Know It: I seriously doubt that BYU allows students to carry weapons on
Compliments to the great work done by the police department! I hope the judge
will prosecute the abusers and put them away for a very, very long time and keep
the criminals off campus and out of the community.
I think that I know it. I live it. I love it. has the right idea. Teach your
daughters to protect themselves. That's what I'm doing.
The heavy vegetation there gives cover to anyone wanting to do something out of
the public eye. BYU needs to remove some of the vegetation and make it easier to
see and be seen. The vegetation does not cause the problem, but it does provide
cover for it. The problem has existed for decades, it's time
BYU took steps to lessen the problem.
I Know, et al:I think having a 3-4 foot fence would deter evil doers
from dragging BYU coeds off the Walk way to upper campus to a secluded spot.
It's a public safety issue. Having a daughter, I'd like to make it
difficult for some opportunist punk and give pause to one who wants to do evil.
There may be one there now. Anybody care to confirm?
byutrackstar,Did you really just propose fences be put up around any
bush anywhere?After all, just because this groper is roaming byu
doesn't mean the next groper will be. So shouldn't we fence off all
shrubbery everywhere so they can't hide in said shrubbery?
BYU Track Star,You really think a fence will stop someone? Even if
it could, once you turn 18 you are a responsible adult. You don't need your
workplace and school to put up fences to make a walk-way safer. Get a gun, get
spray, or hide in a hermit hut in the middle of nowhere.Any amount
of blame at BYU is irrational... to the point of being absurd. Blame the groper
for HIS actions, not everyone else for not taking actions that wouldn't
really solve anything.
This problem has been endemic since at least the early 70s. Did BYU ever put up
a Fence up to separate Lower Campus walk way up to main campus along where the
bushes are? What is it with these guys? I'm glad the Ladies fought back.
"suspect was clean shaven" At least we know he is shaving, right? Cause
that isn't likely to change overnight or anything.
