UNC Student Body President Gunned Down

A body was found, shot multiple times in the head, yesterday morning about a half-mile from the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill.

She has now been identified.

Chapel Hill police have identified a woman found dead near the University of North Carolina campus Wednesday morning as the university's student body president.

UNC senior Eve Carson, 22, was found shot multiple times in the head about a half-mile from campus.

The News & Observer seems to hint that the murder may have occurred during a carjacking.

Investigators are looking for Carson's stolen 2005 blue Toyota Highlander with Georgia license plate AIV 6690. They believe the vehicle was taken during the crime.

What a shame, to lose such a promising young person to seemingly random violence.

The University's statement is here.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 919-968-2760.

No doubt they will be rounding up the hockey team for questioning.

UNC4evr is one funny guy.

But here's a tip. It's tragedy + time = comedy.

See, you need to give it a day or two before you turn this tragic murder into a cheap joke.

That wasn't a cheap joke. I'm serious and I know what I'm talking about. I currently go to school there.

Interesting and sad, mostly sad.

Last Tuesday night down south a ways at Auburn U. Lauren Burk was shot just three miles off campus.

Her car was found torched near the campus.

Bunch of bad hoodoo going on here.

Alas, it is not random senseless violence. It is planned, preprogrammed, and entirely forseeable attacks on people who have been systematically disarmed.

Imagine if she had a holster in her car. Empty is does nothing. Now imagine that whe had a .44 Special Charter Arms revolver in it. Then, instead of being murdered, she would have had a chance to perforate the thugs, perhaps even removing a chance for the criminal defense lawyers to make money.

Then the criminal prosecution lawyers would have had to decide to go after her for not having the good taste to submit to the thugs and the lawyers who ban self defense. Well, if criminal prosecution lawyers did that very often, they would rightly be regarded as scum. As it is, they are elevated to the pinnacle of society, as we desparately need them to protect us from the thugs, against whom we are forbidden to protect outselves.

Ask yourself: Who benefits from having civilian holsters be empty?
Answer: Criminal defense lawyers. Criminal prosecution lawyers. Police.
