I almost freaked when I got to my son's fraternity and heard them talking. The side of the face of his fraternity brother was still red -- that's how close he was. He said at the time all he could think to do was run and then wondered if someone thought he was involved so he called the cops to report what he had seen and they showed up as my daughter and I were leaving.
Glad that your son is okay. Your first-person accounts on this thread have been most illuminating (especially considering the media blackout). Thanks a lot.
The Frat brother did the right thing by contacting the authorities. If someone has the NEED TO KNOW, it needs to be them.
By the other side of the token, if this really was some sort of Terrorist attack, then we don't need to AID THE ENEMY
Maybe my attitude is this way as I just finished watching the trilogy Lord of the Rings.
Where the fellowship was at different times was known to the enemy. And there were sneak attacks in that trilogy at different times, or people caught off guard by people who betrayed them...
