UT Regents (Finally) Increase Security Around Campus

"Peace be within your walls,
Prosperity within your palaces."
Psalm 122:7

Oh wow:
The University of Texas System Board of Regents has approved new funding for public safety and security measures in the West Campus area of UT Austin.

In a letter, UT President Gregory Fenves announced the approval, saying it will include hiring 11 additional UT police officers and two additional police sergeants and investments in cameras and other technology solutions, vehicles and equipment.
We haven't discussed the UT board in ages.  As long as they're protected by the Governor, there's not a lot that can be done.  Still...we suppose we're honor bound to note when they do something for which we called a long time ago.

We've been calling for this since 2017.  That was the year that saw the second on campus murder in 13 months.  That was also when the violent commies were running around.  Obviously, this is in response to Austin's recent homelessness issues.

So good deal...although maybe, just maybe, some of this recent issues could have been avoided if folks had listened to us three years ago.

Bottom Line: This should have happened three years ago, but better late than never.
