Student Who Studied Mass Shooting Videos Had Planned Attack by Christmas, Police Say

Student Who Studied Mass Shooting Videos Had Planned Attack by Chri...

August 30, 2019

For nearly a year, Paul Steber had been planning, prosecutors say. The 19-year-old from Massachusetts had chosen a university in North Carolina to begin his freshman year because, he told authorities, it was easier to get guns there. Since last Christmas, prosecutors said, Steber had been thinking about committing violence: He studied past mass shootings and had stocked his dorm room with weapons. But the plan never came to be.

Marquette University (WI) recently adopted a policy on campus demonstrations that faculty members and free-speech advocates say creates a dangerous chilling effect. Since the policy was announced this month, graduate students and the faculty have taken issue with the restrictions it imposes on free speech — and the way Marquette, a Jesuit institution in Milwaukee, has adopted the measure. More than 100 faculty members signed an open letter, delivered to Marquette administrators on Tuesday, that called the policy “arbitrary and capricious.”
