Weekly Update SJSU Crime Watch


What we did the past week: We submitted one 90 second in-depth story and daily content of incidents that have happened around campus.

Issues we had with gathering material (finding sources, verifying facts, interviews, etc.): Former Police Chief Decena was the source we got to interview. We posted from bulletin but did not verify certain incidents such as “medical attention.”

Issues we had with producing the content (writing, recording, editing, etc.): Vinny had trouble access Selina Storyline and was not able to post from her account. Need to have Vinny’s storyline figured out.

Technical issues (with WordPress or Alexa, etc.):None.

Other questions we ran into:

What we are going to do this week. Things to improve. Who is doing what:We plan to improve by:
Introduce each post with “Here are Wednesday’s top THREE (any #) crime stories”
Include the time and date!
Call police to ask questions about at LEAST one story per reporter
Instead of writing the script for Alexa, RECORD the scripts in your voice
Order the stories in ORDER OF IMPORTANCE

How we are going to test our skill this week: Instead of just posting to storyline we will test with Alexa

Salvatore Maxwell, Week 6, Revised script

In the wake of Parkland High School shooting, which left 17 dead and multiple injured. High School and College students around the nation are standing up against gun violence.

The San Jose State University community recently experienced a hoax of a warning that a shooting would occur on campus. Multiple universities in over 30 states have publicly joined in the fight to support gun regulations through the #NeverAgain movement.

I interviewed William Yap, a journalism student at San Jose State University where his experience and fear of school shootings has shaped his belief on how he views gun control and the impact it would have on gun violence.

Yap: “If we make common sense gun regulations now right its still gonna happen people are still gonna have guns but we’re gonna lesser the chance of it.”

On March 24, students will participate in the March for Our Lives demonstration in support of #NeverAgain.

For Ooo Juicy Drama, I’m Salvatore Maxwell signing off.
