'Blistering': UNC faces fines after federal safety, crime reporting violations

Nearly seven years after its investigation began, the U.S. Department of Education stated in a final program review report that UNC acted in violation of federal laws on campus safety and crime information throughout the department's review period while demonstrating a lack of administrative capability that “remains a matter of serious concern for the department.” Clery Act expert S.

Did police body cam footage factor into dismissing a student's Silent Sam-related charges?

Video footage of Silent Sam demonstrator Mark Porlides shows the Dec. 3 night of his arrest, where officers charged him with larceny, assault of a campus officer and resisting an officer. Since then, the graduate student learned that the charges against him were dismissed.  Porlides said that the incident echoes sentiments expressed by others who are raising concerns over police brutality and unnecessary roughness during public demonstrations. His experience adds to the year's ongoing conversation about policing on campus, and how the relationship between law enforcement and activism has been muddied.
