By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSFORT WORTH, Texas — Police say four Texas Christian Universityfootball players are among 17 students who have been arrested in a campus drug bust.TCU Police Chief Steve McGee said the students arrested Wednesday were caught in an undercover operation selling marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and prescription drugs.He did not immediately identify those arrested but says their names will be released later in the day.McGee says the six-month investigation was prompted by complaints from students, parents and others.Image via Wikipedia

The link for the story at the Star Telegram is broken but marijuana, pills and weapons were found when a bunch of folks from Texas Christian University were arrested today in a huge drug bust that the school said was unprecedented.

The list of the those arrested will be posted later today but I heard it on the radio and it is not really online at this time.  Is it because more blacks and browns have been admitted to TCU to people the various teams? 

Universities have always have problems with drug selling on campus.  Why is this one different? Maybe professors were involved too.  No, we found out that it was football players from their stellar team.

I know TCU well because I’ve taken grad courses there and I ride by bike by there all summer because I live nearby.  The demographics have changed over the past 10 years I know that much.  More later

  1. “is it because more blacks and prowns have been admitted to people the teams?”
    Really? Not surprising that racism is alive and well I suppose.

    Maybe the realities include: people always have, and always will, use drugs. Repression, denial, and hate- all of which seem abundant here, often lead to unhealthy use of drugs and addiction.

    I hoe the parents, the school, and the community all take a good look at themselves here. Though I am not holding my breath.

    • hello we know drugs cut across social lines. I also know that TCU has brought in many more blacks and browns not only to work there but also as students.

      It could have been a Greek frat house…and I would not be surprised. It is also funny that the link is broken and the names have not been released. No googled hits when I tried.

  2. Blacks and browns?

    I tell you TCU has a majority of whites in the school. Along with the rich whites that most likely got arreated. Frats were also in involved as well. Once 11am hits (central) tell me how many “blacks and browns” and arrested opposed to whites.

    Stop with the racism because whites, yellows, reds, blues, and greens do just as much as “blacks and browns”

    • I live near TCU I know the demograhics. I also have had many students get scholarships. Of course we know white folks have the money and the desire to do drugs that goes without saying.
