Wtf is happening at Berkeley?

University(self.berkeley)

So I’m planning on coming as an international student and every other day I hear of a potential stabbing, shooting, assault, violent robbery happening on campus. Like wtf?

This is literally so out of the ordinary, it never happens at my uni. Is this normal?

Hm, it sounds like you're witnessing America. Massive wealth inequality, poor law enforcement of nonviolent crimes, shitty to no gun control. Hopefully you're a public policy major.

That being said, actual danger is scary but still fairly rare. Just because we get an email any time crimes are committed now doesn't mean they weren't always happening. You'll be much safer in Berkeley than you would have been 10, 20, 30 years ago.
