Why does Allen Fieldhouse only check women's purses? What about men's jacket pockets? It seems kind of discriminatory in a sense.

Brad Nachtigal, director of facilities and events, said: "Each bag, whether it's a purse, backpack, camera bag, etc. that is out in plain view is searched. By searched, I mean we ask the fan or patron to open it for visual inspection. If something is suspicious, we will ask the fan or patron to wait while a KU Public Safety officer is asked to come review the item. Jackets, coats, etc. are not patted down for items, rather visually inspected upon entrance."
