Liberty U student killed by police


A 19-year-old Liberty Univer-
sity student died Tuesday morn-
ing when he was shot by a public
safety officer at an all-female
dorm at the school's Lynchburg,
Va., campus, The Liberty Cham-
pion reported.
Lynchburg police responded
to a call around 4 a.m. A physi-
cal altercation then occurred
between the student and a
police officer, who then shot the
It is unclear whether the
student was armed. Police said
the officer shot at the student
at least twice. The officer was
taken to the hospital for treat-
ment and was later released.
"The Liberty University com-

munity is deeply saddened by
this tragic event and is prayer-
fully supporting all those
impacted," Jerry Falwell Jr.,
Liberty's president, said in a
University of Delaware
fraternity brothers acquitted
in hazing death
Two University of Delaware
Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity
brothers were found not liable
in the 2008 death of a freshman
student, The University of Dela-
ware Review reported Monday.
In November 2008, Brett
Griffin, 18 at the time, attended
a pledge event at the fraternity.

During the party, he became
unconscious and was left alone
in a room. He began to foam at
the mouth, 911 was called and he
died later that night.
His autopsy showed that he
had ingested an entire fifth-
sized bottle of Southern Com-
fort liqueur, resulting in a blood
alcohol content of .341. Alco-
hol poisoning was noted as the
cause of death.
The lawsuit against the
brothers argued that former
chapter president Jason Aaron
and former pledge master
Matthew Siracusa were liable
for his death.

Early N.M.votes oppose
late-term abortion ban

largest city was trailing in early

Michelle Halfacre said she
cast her ballot in favor of the
proposal, which would ban
abortions after 20 weeks except
to save the mother's life.
"I had an abortion when I
was young, and I regret it,"
Halfacre said. "I don't believe
in it."
But Jonathan Cottrell, a crisis

hotline volunteer, said he voted
against the proposal because he
believes it marks the beginning
of a "slippery slope to ban abor-

"I feel that women have the

Daily StaffReporter
Contingent upon the pas-
sage of Senate Bill 408, recently
graduated students looking for
employment will receive a state-
sponsored incentive to work in
The bill, which was voted out
of committee and sent to the full
state Senate last Wednesday,
would give graduates of private
and public Michigan schools a
tax credit equal to 50 percent of
the annual payment on their stu-
dent loans for each tax year they
live and work in Michigan.
In a statement, state Sen.
Glenn Anderson (D-Westland),
the bill's sponsor, characterized
it as one part of a bigger over-
all approach to address rising
tuition costs and the growing
need for a more educated work-
"My legislation addresses two
significant problems in Michi-
gan - the growing student loan
debt crisis for college graduates
and the economic brain drain we
experience when our students
move to other states after gradu-
ation," he wrote in the statement.
"The credit would be a financial
incentive for graduates to stay in

The tax reduction per person
would be capped at 20 percent
of the average annual tuition for
Michigan schools, and graduates
would be eligible to receive the
reduction forup to fiveyears. The
bill defines an eligible graduate
as someone who has completed
at least a bachelor's degree at any
of Michigan's private or public
colleges and universities.
An analysis performed by the
Senate Fiscal Agency estimates
that the bill would reduce state
revenue by $29.4 million for the
2013-2014 fiscal year, and has
projected that it could cost the
state up to $152.9 million by the
2017-2018 fiscal year.
While those numbers are
large, they don't necessarily rep-
resent a net loss for the state.
Don Grimes, a senior research
associate at the University's
Institute for Research on Labor,
Employment and the Economy,
pointed out that the demograph-
ic this bill is aimed at - newly
graduated students with at least
a bachelor's degree - have both
a high-earning potential and
are very likely to leave the state
without incentives like this.
"If you can keep (recently
graduated students) here for five
years, the probability that they
will stay in the state after that

increases dramatically, and the
state will keep all of their addi-
tional income tax payments,
which would have been lost if
they had moved out of the state,"
he said.
Grimes added that "people
who earn bachelor's degrees
tend tobe big net contributors to
the state and local government
budgets, and they pay much
more in taxes than they cost the -
state and local government in
extra services."
LSA junior Lisa Tencer, presi-
dent of the University chapter of
Pure Michigan Talent Connect,
a group that encourages students
to stay and work in the state after
graduation, said from a student
standpoint, the bill definitely 0
makes Michigan a more enticing
post-graduation option.
"According to USA Today, 44
percent of the U-M class of 2011
were in debt when graduating,"
said Tencer. "This is a growing
concern to many of my peers who
would indeed find this tax credit
extremely attractive. Many cit-
ies such as New York City and
Chicago seem more attractive to
graduates because of the higher
rate of pay and larger popula-
A similar bill, HB 4182 -
which included recommenda-
tions and research from the
University chapter of the Col-
lege Democrats and the Roos-
evelt Institute - was introduced
to the State House in February
2013 by state Rep. Andy Schor
(D-Lansing). It has been in com-
mittee since April.

Asked if other cities with
