Savannah State University has 5,000 students so it comes as a great shock that with a full student hall witnessing and posting pics of the murder of Christopher Starks a prominent Lithonia football star and prominent Church family here has failed to even turn up an arrest in the most recent murder on their campus 8 months later now today. There have been other murders at Savannah State University on their campus as well including another without a single arrest either. They recently have issued statements that they have hired a prominent Savannah Chatham County Major James Barnwell to take-over a seemingly under-sized security staff of 30 plus another 30 civilian public safety staff. Maybe he can get some security cameras to if not protect our youth our future, at least get some arrests for murders committed on the campus. This is part of The University System of Georgia yet our future our youth clearly have not been protected here.
Hopefully prominent Major James Barnwell can get a proper staff and proper security camera system and prevent non-students from roaming free here for our youth our future with 5000 students. I can tell you 30 is not going to get it with 5000 students. Prestigious Law Firm Johnny Cochran has been hired independently to at least get some arrest in this most recent violence on campus. How can a student union be full of students a murder committed and no one even arrested ? This most recent murder on campus has received international news that this is in fact the case.
We are going to have to give Major James Barnwell more support and more staff. We all need to get behind Major James Barnwell on this to protect our youth. And we are going to have to give him the resources to update his security needs he obviously takes over lacking the proper resources for him to properly do his job. Everything on that campus needs overhauling in the area of security.
Of course, the students and staff need to assist Major James Barnwell. He is our friend. He is there to help us.
So our youth has one from there now who seeks his last 2 years in college here at UGA or 3 if the NCAA allows the waiver. I would think that a mere formality in this case, wouldn’t you ?
Common decency from the oft-embattled NCAA on this case-by-case basis would result in Sean Fogarty having 3 years to compete here at UGA. I am very troubled by the violence at one of The University System of Georgia’s 5000 student bodies’ institutions. This is a very important institution and serves a wide range of our youth all of whom all of us are counting upon.
I urge anyone who has anything to please come forward on either of these unsolved cases. You know you know something.
How long are you going to wait to make an arrest in this most recent murder case, or indeed another both of which involved non-students gaining access to The University System of Georgia campus ?
It’s an outrage. Untenable.
We owe more to our youth our future than this.
Sean Fogarty would be a Sophomore and I know all of us are pulling for him a student who has had the light go off and is in good standing within The University System of Georgia USG.
How can we have multiple homicides recently on a campus of 1 of our University System of Georgia’s MAJOR Division 1 Universities and no arrests in several now recent homicides here ?
I am appalled at this whole story and have followed Savannah State University all my life with many prominent graduates such as the Mayor of Savannah for example and the Chief Information Officer for the President of The United States and Tuskegee Airmen Flight Instructor and Major General U.S. Marine Corps Joint Staff.
Protect our youth please USG our future. Turn the heat up. Commit enough resources to solve this.
Note that Brad Stewart of Benedictine Military in Savannah signed-on with yellowjackets last year 2015 Sean Fogarty’s classmate and teammate.
“I’m making great grades now. I’m doing well. I just felt like I needed something different. I needed a change, and I needed to get away from home. I sent out some tape and emails, and Georgia contacted me. I visited around to a couple of places, but I just felt like Georgia was where I needed to be. I think this opportunity was given to me for a reason. Coach Sam Pittman (from Arkansas Rock Star) said he’s going to care for me the same as a walk-on as with a scholarship. He’s going to treat me like one of his. They’ve been good to me. Coach DJ Looney (from Central Arkansas as Offensive Tackles Coach there Kirby hired a month ago), too. I’m glad they do what they do.”
“I’m about 6-foot-3 and a half and about 305 pounds. Coach Sam Pittman (Rock Star) was talking to me at first we talked about being a center. He didn’t realize how big I was until I got there, and he got to see it. Coach Kirby Smart said something on the interior.”
I am proud of what we’ve been doing as a staff in recruiting and especially how our walk-ons have filled-in a roster which got down to 67 scholarship recruits of 118 signed who could have played in the bowl game at the end of the year before up in Charlotte.
Let me be clear on this. That is not 67 “ON SCHOLARSHIP” all Mark Richt had on his roster. That is “118 signed SCHOLARSHIP RECRUITS” who with a redshirt could’ve played in the Charlotte bowl game the year before. Of those 118 not 1 was taken in the 2014 NFL Draft early. Yet Mark Richt suited-up of those 118 he signed here only 67 SCHOLARSHIP RECRUITS for the bowl in Charlotte the year before now.
You get that ?
We get 85 scholarships just like everyone else. If AJ Turman wants to go, someone else will give Kirby a chance. Of course AJ Turman should have given Kirby a chance too. If he were being recruited for 2016 or 2017 he would have loved to have played for Kirby. Big mistake. Watch our running backs 2016 set the record. I promise.
Yes he gave walk-ons scholarships to bring that total up but they mostly were special teams players who never got to play on offense or defense. And our special teams were # 100 every year for years and years and years and years without a special teams coach even. It was part of our trophy for everyone.
Now we have this fine staff of Kirby getting us fine young men like this man Sean Fogarty who is just proud to be here and compete for 2 years if the NCAA will let him 3 years. We’ll see on that. I don’t hold a lot of hope for that, but I do hope that we can at least come up with 1 arrest in the 2 recent unsolved murders on the campus at Savannah State University a prominent school and 1 very important to me personally one I have followed all my life.
“I grew up loving Georgia. I’ve been to a lot of games, and my uncle has season tickets near the sky box area. We’re really passionate about it, and I’d get mad when they lost. I think I was always jealous because I wanted to be a Bulldog and didn’t have the opportunity. It means everything. Playing at this level is something I’ve always dreamed of. I didn’t just pick it because it’s Georgia, though. I feel like I can reach my full potential under Coach Sam Pittman (Rock Star) and Coach Smart (just call him Kirby.)”
I am pulling for you Sean Fogarty as many of our students transferred-in from other institutions and got their degree at UGA who too were longtime lifelong Bulldogs’ fans. We are proud to have you join us. And many of them had the light go off in college that did not before. That is what THIS IS ALL ABOUT. So, best of luck sir ! Keep up the great work in life and much will come your way Sean Fogarty. Nice to read about you sir.
