Crime and Self-Defense at CNM [CNM Dissent]

Subject: Timely Notice of Incident on Main Campus

It was reported to CNM Security today (Dec. 13) that an alleged sexual assault of a female occurred on Dec. 6, 2010, at 1 p.m. at the BMX parking lot on CNM’s Main Campus[1]. Anyone with information should contact Lt. Conklin in the CNM Security department at 224-4635. It is believed that the suspect was a male around 6-feet tall and heavy set with long black hair and thick facial hair/mustache, possibly Hispanic or Native American, driving a van.

All individuals should remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings in parking lots and should report any suspicious or unusual activity to CNM Security immediately at 224-3001.

This notice is sent in compliance with the “Timely Notice” provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998[2].

How nice of the Administration to comply with federal law in notifying us students and faculty about this incident.

Still, it is rather . . . (is “alarming” too strong a word here? No, it isn’t) . . . alarming that such an incident like this could happen in broad daylight is what we would presume to be an open parking lot[3].

I wonder if this incident might have been facilitated in any way by CNM’s policies of victim disarmament[4]:

Never bring firearms or other weapons on premises, including buildings, parking lots and vehicles.
