there's something wrong here...

the Harvard University Police Department (known by most students as HUPD) sends emails to all students whenever a crime happens in the community.

when a male grad student is robbed, all students are told to "be vigilant while walking throughout campus."

when a woman is "indecently assaulted," women are explicitly told to "take common sense safety precautions."

does anyone else see an issue with this?

UPDATE:  apparently, HUPD was only forwarding a message from another police department to all students, and they usually don't change the format of the police reports they get.  this revelation didn't make anyone feel much better about the situation, though.
