Students to be expelled from Gonazaga U for fending off invader with a gun in off campus student housing.

"The officer commended the young men for their actions, telling them they used the right amount of force to keep themselves safe,"

"Campus officials were within their rights to enter the home without a warrant and remove the weapons, Martin said. The school’s student policy grants campus security the authority to enter university-owned student housing, even when it’s off campus,"

" Their apartment is in a neighborhood where they feel unsafe and where students don’t have the same security as in dorms, they said.

“If they can’t protect us, it is up to us to protect ourselves,” ***an said. “By having policies such as this, they are saying that we are either choosing between protecting ourselves or potentially facing expulsion.”

"That came at 2 a.m. the following day, when the two men awoke to pounding on their bedroom doors.

It was campus security. They entered the home, went upstairs to the bedrooms and hammered on the doors, telling them to give up the weapons, the students said."

Wonder if non LEO campus security does the same middle of the night search of female students?
