So, of course, nothing happened.
But someone told me about this e-mail that was sent to all SCAD kids as a warning:
From: SCAD Message System
Date: Friday, April 30th, 2004 8:59 PM
To: undisclosed recipients:
Subject: College Security Warning
The following information was received from the Savannah-Chatham
Metropolitan Police Department. A number of fights, purse snatchings
and robberies have occurred at or near Teaser's Cafe, on the corner of
W. Liberty St. and MLK Jr. Boulevard. Incidents are reported to start
at approximately closing time.
This location is not near any SCAD facility, but it is on a frequently
traveled route, so caution is advised when in that area.
For more safety tips read On The Safe Side, which appears weekly in The
Chronicle. Additional information can be found in the many brochures,
flyers, and pamphlets that the security department distributes as well
as on our Web site. Go to www.scad.edu/security
If you need transportation to or between any SCAD facility, call the
SCAD transportation and parking services department at 525.RIDE. If
you have any safety questions or concerns, please contact the college
security department at 525.4500, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or come to
the security office at 345 Bull Street (across from Poetter Hall).
Director of College Security
Fights, yes. Purse snatchings? Robberies? I'm afraid not. Not to my knowledge anyway. I think that at least one of the police officers that's there would have mentioned something to me about the previous if they had happened.
