dministration's false security inexcusable


When it comes to safety .it l‘ls'. campus
leaders all ha\e an opinion on what sliotild be
done to lllttkc sltldcllls as lec .Is possible.
They all also |i.i\e a finger pointed at sortie-
oiie else when asked who is responsible for
the lack of attention and ettoit in monitoring
campus salcty

The Kernel reported that not only does
l'ls' not li.i\ e a central camera security sys
tent. btit they also li.i\ e been falsely .ltl\k‘11l\*
trig one iii some buildings

The (irehan .louriialisin Btiilding had
sc\er‘al signs stating "l'ls' l’olice monitor
hallways with \ ideo cameras." which were
up tititil recently \Vhen Kernel reporter .len‘
nifei‘ (it‘aliam contacted l K Police to ask
abotit their purpose. they were remo\ ed on
Dec. 3 with the c\ception of one in the
front of the building On Dec is’. when the
story ran. the remaining sign is as taken

Only after .i reporter questioned the put
pose did l'K take the initiative to take down
the signs. which were completely false.

When asked w here the srgiis came from.
UK Police didn‘t know. Doug Boyd. cun‘ent
chief of staff to l l\' President Lee Todd and

the dean of the (‘ollege of (‘omniunication
and Information Studies at the time. said he
ordered the signs and cameras he ptrt up after
there were several incidents iii the basement.
He also told the reporter the cameras must
hay e come down after he left his position as

Another professor said the cameras were
only tip for about si\ months. yet the signs
remained for about a decade after.

“It certainly wasn't a conspiracy to leave
them up." said John Clark. an associate pro»
tessor of teleciimniiinications. "It was not a
matter of inattention."

Britgo. (‘lark has coined the word that
best describes llK‘s approach to safety. Irrat-
tenth e. Negligent. Without a whole lot of

l‘K negligently ptit fake cameras in place
of the real ones in the (irehan Building. (‘lark
said. He wasn‘t sure who did that. bill he
knew it wasn‘t his department.

So. where we stand is UK Police didn‘t
ptit up the signs. Boyd didn't take the cam--
et‘as down. the College of (‘ommunications
and liiforrnatioii Studies did not ask for the
fake cameras and no one is really sure why

the signs stayed up for a decade Without hav—
itig any purpose.

Brit l'K's safety negligence isn't new.
Around a year ago. UK announced a plan to
release theatrical smoke into the corridors of
lrigles Hall in a drill meant to simulate a real
fire. The drill brought about a lot of serious
questioning from safety experts.

“I would be concemed because when
you‘re in a dorm situation you have different
languages. disabilities. health issues and lots
of different people coming in and out." said
Ken Farmer. branch chief of prevention and
leadership for the US. Fire Administration. a
division of the Federal Emergency Manage—
ment Agency in the original Kemel story.
“Not everyone will understand it's a drill.
What if a student went through the smoke
and hit something?"

But UK had their blinders on then.just as
they do now.

"It opens students” eyes that they are not
prepared for a real situation." UK Assistant
Fire Marshal (.ireg Williamson said. “They
respond to the drill exactly like they would if
it were a real fire."

Holding fake fire drills without warning





is a dreadful idea that is not in the best inter
est of the students. Just like falsely telling \lllr
dents they are being watched by l'K Police is
not in their best interest.

It seems to never have occurred to any of
the involved parties that falsely telling stu~
dents the police are watching may actually
give comfort to those who are there late at
night. Sure. a few thieves may be deterred.
but most students are not in classroorii build
irrgs to make a buck. They ‘re actually spt'lltl‘
irrg thousands to get educated.

If the school can‘t afford a central slit“
veillance system. that‘s understandable. esper
cially in times like these. The budget shrinks
every year. and it would be ridictiloUs to ex
pect UK to spend the hundreds of thousands.
if not millions. of dollars such a system
would cost.

And no one is really expecting that. All
that‘s really being asked is that if there is no
such system. UK should not pretend there is
by having fake security signs or carrieras. llls'
officials need to take all of those pointed fin
gets and tuni them back around because the
blame on this one frills on a little bit of "lll‘dlr
tention" on everyone‘s part.

All thats r ‘ally being asked is that it there s no such system. L’Is should

not pretend there is by having; fake security signs or cameras.”



Todd. UK should
reign in spending

After reading President Todd‘s riiost recent update on
the state of the unnersity‘s budget. I find myself stir-
prised that lie seems so overwhelmed by this latest round
of appropriation cuts. He and his administration. like so
many other iiidii iduals and iristitutrons in this country.
have Iound their financial bubble burst. lit the last few
years this nnnersity has been spending. much like other
notable institutions in this country. and now the adminis—
tration seems shocked to iind themselves in the same sit-
nation as the rest pants down and out of cash.

While I respect the initiatiye to expand the scope of
this tiniyersrty to include the population beyond its
