Response to OSU Campus Attack

Nov 29, 2016

On Monday morning, the Ohio State University administration alerted students and employees to "Run, Hide, Fight," by text and email. A university student had plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then turned on others with a butcher knife. The incident lasted fewer than sixty seconds, and even after the attacker was shot and killed by a campus police officer, students and staff hid and waited for more than an hour. We discuss the attack, the police response, and the psychological toll of violence.
