    Michigan State coach Mel Tucker is the subject of an ongoing university investigation into allegations of sexual harassment stemming from a complaint filed by Brenda Tracy in December 2022, the prominent rape survivor and activist against sexual violence told USA Today. In the complaint, Tracy alleges Tucker made sexually suggestive comments and masturbated while she "sat frozen for several minutes" during a phone call on April 28, 2022. Tracy visited MSU at least three times as an activist starting in 2021 -- including once in which she was recognized as an honorary captain at a Michigan State spring football game...

    EAST LANSING, Mich. — All firearms have been banned on Michigan State University's campus and buildings, after the Board of Trustees voted Friday morning to close a loophole that allowed visitors to carry concealed firearms in public areas of campus. Currently, a Board of Trustee ordinances bans all student, staff, and faculty from carrying firearms on campus or in university buildings, regardless of whether they have a concealed pistol license, or CPL. An interpretation of the ordinance has allowed visitors to carry concealed firearms in public spaces on campus. Law enforcement and the Michigan State University Department of Police and...

    MSU is lifting its COVID-19 vaccine mandate effective today, Feb. 28. Deputy spokesperson Dan Olsen said MSU will still continue to encourage vaccinations, including COVID-19, because “all of these measures better protect health and well-being of our campus community.” Olsen said the widespread protection of the individuals who have already been vaccinated, plus new boosters and treatment options, eliminated the need for a campus-wide mandate. “Now, as both the virus and our understanding of it continues to evolve, there is widespread protection due to the number of individuals vaccinated,” university physician Michael Brown said in an email to the MSU...

He had originally claimed his son bought the guns at a pawn shop.
  • Two 'lazy' Vanderbilt University deans are suspended after they used ChatGPT to write 297-word email to students about deadly mass shooting at Michigan State

    Vanderbilt University has apologized for using artificial intelligence to write a 297-word email to students after the Michigan State University mass shooting, causing two deans to temporarily step down. The Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion sent students an email on February 16 reminding them to 'take care of each other' after the MSU shooting. Although the email came off as kind and offered students ways to help promote a caring environment with their peers, at the very bottom, it revealed it wasn't written by a human. ...

    If you believe tweets from Michael Bloomberg’s The Trace and its employees, I am “one major factor” why the U.S. hasn’t passed stronger gun control laws and thus, they claim, responsible for mass shootings in the United States. These are becoming regular tweets after each mass public shooting. They are upset that I have quoted mass murderers on their decisions to target gun-free zones. Yet, statements such as, “Areas where CCW are outlawed or prohibited may be good areas of attack” are common among mass murderers. That doesn’t make sense to gun control supporters. Immediately after this week’s shooting at...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) is reintroducing legislation to require background checks on all commercial gun purchases in the aftermath of the Michigan State University shooting that left three students dead. Murphy has pushed for stronger gun control legislation throughout his time in Congress, and is now once again calling for mandatory background checks for every firearm sale. If the measure became law, prospective gun buyers would need to undergo a background check for the sale or transfer of guns, including online sales, purchases at gun shows and through unlicensed sellers, according to the bill. Murphy told Poppy Harlow on “CNN...

The type of firearm used in the MSU attack has not yet been reported by police, nor has the means by which the attacker acquired said gun. Biden noted the MSU attack occurred one day before the fifth anniversary of the Parkland high school shooting, saying, “The fact that this shooting took place the night before this country marks five years since the deadly shooting at...

    A key figure in Mississippi’s welfare spending scandal has pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges under an arrangement that signals he may be cooperating, according to court records. John Davis directed Mississippi’s welfare agency while it doled out millions of dollars in federal welfare money to projects investigators now say were improper, including a new volleyball facility requested by former NFL quarterback Brett Favre that benefited his daughter. According to court records, Davis agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud and theft — charges that together carry a maximum of 15 years in prison. “At Davis’s direction, (Mississippi’s...

    EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – A petition has collected more than 8,000 signatures from people upset over MSU’s move to make vaccines mandatory.

The announcement sparked a petition on change.org by senior Peter Sarotte. “My main goal is to inspire students around the country to stand up against these mandates and focus on what...
