Michigan lawmakers ask questions about university safety

Battle Creek Enquirer:
"State lawmakers started asking questions Thursday about the safety of Michigan’s college campuses in the wake of the Virginia Tech massacre, focusing especially on mentally ill students.

“There were a lot of warning signs,” Senate Education Chairman Wayne Kuipers, who held a hearing on campus safety, said of gunman Cho Seung-Hui.

Officials from Michigan State, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan universities testified about the challenges they face in securing large campuses with hundreds of buildings, many road entrances and tens of thousands of students."
