Watch Primetime Tonight

The ABC News program "Primetime" is scheduled to air an extensive investigation into stories of crime on college campuses this evening. The campus crime segment is expected to be broadcast during the first hour of the program. Please consult your local listings for the exact time and channel in your area.

This feature is part of a special two hour broadcast tonight at 9 PM Eastern/8 PM Central. The story includes segments on the murders of two University of North Carolina Wilmington students, Christen Marie Naujoks and Jessica Lee Faulkner. Their killers were fellow students with criminal records. The story will also feature a brutal robbery that left a University of Tennessee student with permanent brain damage. In addition, the investigation will spotlight the problem of "tailgating" on campus. No, not the drinking in the parking lot kind of tailgating. It is a term used when unauthorized people walk into residence halls behind students who live there while the door slowly closes.

This kind of attention on campus crime is long overdue. I hope you can check it out.
