Navigating the tricky landscape surrounding law enforcement often can leave some students stumbling in the dark, but a Wednesday night event looked to shed some light on proper policies and conduct. A presentation and discussion looked to inform students on their individual legal rights when dealing with law enforcement while educating attendees on various academic and property rights as students and tenants. The event was organized in part by ASMSU, MSU’s undergraduate student government, and James Madison College Student Senate, among others. Social relations and policy senior Max Olivero organized the “Know Your Rights” event for the second year in a row and partnered with ASMSU to broaden the program’s educational reach. Olivero, a James Madison College Student Senate member, said the forum aimed to inform students about medical amnesty a relatively new law that protects minors from receiving minor in possession charges if they call 911 for medical assistance. “We are giving this presentation as a simple what to do and what not to do when stopped and questioned by law enforcement,” Olivero said.
Brendan Heim, the third and final teen charged with the death of marketing sophomore Dustyn Frolka, was sentenced today in Clinton County Court to between 32 1/2 and 60 years in prison for first degree murder.
MSU students soon will have the opportunity to witness an educational event aiming to erase the stigma associated with failure. ASMSU, MSU’s undergraduate student government, has allocated $25,000 from its Special Projects fund to host Failure:Lab, a storytelling event that allows spectators to listen in on strangers’ stories of failure. The student government hopes to be able to recover their investment in this event through ticket sales. Failure:Lab, which previously has performed shows in Grand Rapids and Detroit, invites well-known, successful people to share intimate stories of personal failure in their lives. The storytellers are not allowed to explain how their failure helped them later achieve their goals, but must instead focus on how failure is a normal component in reaching success. Jonathan Williams, co-founder of Failure:Lab, has been brainstorming ideas of bringing notable alumni into the event as a way to localize the event to a campus environment. The event is meant to reduce the fear many people have of taking a risk and falling short, Williams said. “Failure:Lab is an honest conversation about the struggles behind success,” Williams said.
