Drunk freshman kills campus cop

Robert Langley was an Iraq vet who came home alive to work as a campus cop at the University of Mississippi. He died of head injuries inflicted by a pickup truck with Ole Miss freshman Daniel Cummings at the wheel. Cummings tested positive for alcohol, marijuana and cocaine, according to a year-end story in the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal.

Responding to the death, University authorities deplored a "culture of alcohol" and called for a study group to come up with recommendations. The local Baptist church called for prayers and condemned a climate of "moral indecency." Translation: after the handwringing, nothing will change.
