Ferdinand Dorsey, a 24 year-old student at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was shot and killed at an apartment building near campus Monday night, after "arguing with other Southern students on campus." His death came just two days after the violent death of another Southern student, Sheena Barnett, whose body was found beaten and burned inside her home Saturday. "Why don't you start calling us now and tell us exactly what's going on in these communities?" asked the mayor of Baton Rouge, rhetorically, and oddly.
Meanwhile, in nearby Florida, lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow college students to carry guns on campus.
