To the editor,
I still remember the warnings I heard during frosh week about how to stay safe in Halifax. As a cocky teenager, I ignored the warnings. Still, after 10 years of 3am strolls home, often across the Common, I've never been attacked.
I don't mean to place blame on any of the victims, but I think people need to take some responsibility for their own safety. For example, I've never understood how someone could allow him- or herself to be attacked at the Common. In such a wide open place, how can you not be aware of a group approaching you with violent intent?
