Nearly four years after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, victims' family members and campus safety advocates say it isn't the fine amount of $55,000 Virginia Tech faces that matters, but that the school finally will pay for the mistakes it made during the rampage.
Mr. Carter, the campus safety advocate, said he hopes the fine — no matter how small — will get the attention of other campus officials.
"A strong message has been sent that Clery compliance is important and that institutions have to have good policies, publicize those policies and follow those polices," Mr. Carter said.
