Column: Lock changes won't stop crime

(10/16/02 4:00am)

I would first like to state that Duke is not responsible for the crime that occurs on campus. When pointing fingers, we often forget it's the fault of the individual who commits the crime, and not the fault of where the crime occurs. Sure, if Duke literally put up a bubble around campus to keep the outside world out, crime would likely decrease. But it wouldn't disappear, because those within the Duke community (students, faculty and employees) are capable of crime too. So in a word, it is absurd for us to blame Duke University for the crimes committed within Duke's walls.
