UMass Dartmouth: Students Never In Danger After Bombing

The report released Thursday also said there’s evidence the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth could not have foreseen Tsarnaev’s alleged actions.

The three-member task force, including two university presidents, was formed at the school’s request in May. The report’s release comes the same week two of Tsarnaev’s friends pleaded not guilty to charges they tried to thwart the investigation by taking things from Tsarnaev’s dorm room while police looked for him.

The report praised the university’s response after learning Tsarnaev was a bombing suspect, including its evacuation of the campus.

It also made several recommendations, including reevaluating the campus police force, which it said often operates at minimum levels.
