    A solution would be for Clark Atlanta to secure their campus. How many more Spelman young ladies will it take before the campus is secure. Furthermore, this is 2019 and to have an open campus is just asking for trouble. If you were truly concerned about the safety then the campus police at Clark would have been working longer than an 8 hour shift. Furthermore, it has been stated numerous times that the party was not authorized but if you had campus security then maybe they could have ended the party before the shooting. Once again Clark Atlanta has blood on it’s hands.
