Virginia Tech Fined Again for 2007 Massacre
The federal government has fined Virginia Tech $5,000 for a violation of a campus safety law in connection with the 2007 massacre, The Washington Post reports.
The fine follows a finding that the university had inconsistent policies on the timely warning of safety threats, and it failed to disclose one of them as required under the federal Clery Act. The maximum possible fine for such a violation is $27,500.
In 2012, Virginia Tech was fined $27,500 for another violation of the law after finding that the school failed to issue timely warning to the campus on April 16, 2007, that a gunman was on the loose.
