Got a campus alert. This is insane. IN THE DORM ROOM. Nice friends you have GSU students. Sure, people get raped on the streets plenty, but robbed at gun point in your dorm? The Commons is very strict too.

Thanks for posting this news along with the great photo from the security cam.
It's a great likeness of at least the guy closest to the camera. Someone's going to recognize them.
I have a feeling that the image will work to close the case & find the perps just as did the vid of the carjacking in Midtown last week.
These perps need to be apprehended & taken off of the streets pronto before they kill someone..

According to the AJC, a GSU student has been arrested

1 arrested for armed robbery at Georgia State dorm | www.ajc.com


so it might have been an "inside" job.

One of them was arrested at the corner of Broad and MLK at 10 pm. He was trying to bury the loot in one of my planters.

Like I said before, it's fear of a black planet.

Atlanta is a prosperous city, one of the premier cities of the United States and the world (yeah, I said the world) and it is a BLACK city. Black people make this city, and are responsible for its prominence.

Anytime black people do anything good, you're always gonna have some hate.

It's the same with that thread that got started about Georgia State University being too black and alienating white students. Do you think anybody would post some thread on how the University of Georgia alienates black students?

Public Enemy tried to warn them.
