November 23, 2011.... http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...d-at-offcampus-party-20111123,0,2209455.story I don't live in DeKalb but it is the biggest town near me. I am about 12 miles away from DeKalb. I think the problem is the inner city 'thugs' come to NIU campus to party with their "homies" and cause trouble. Most of the crimes listed here (if not all) are not committed by NIU students or even DeKalb residents. My oldest is an alumni of NIU and had just graduated the year before the Feb. 14th, 2008 shootings. I woke up at 1500 to the breaking news on the radio. I raced in to work to help. I called my son to ask him to check on all his friends who were still students. The Blood Bank is my main department and we were pretty busy until about 2000. There were lots of tears amongst us workers that day. I can't imagine sending your child off to college and him/her never making it back home. All those hopes and dreams...........gone in an instant. What the hell is happening?
