At Least We’re Not the Only Ones…
University of Pittsburgh students who rioted after the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl victory could face disciplinary actions, and possibly expulsion, accroding to an AP article published today.
City police say more than 80 people were arrested that night as crowds threw bottles at police, set small fires, broke store windows and overturned cars. Much of the violence occurred in the Oakland neighborhood that is home to Pitt’s main campus, and many of the offenders appeared to be younger people.
Nordenberg says an unspecified number of Pitt students are already charged by the campus judicial system and others likely will be as police review surveillance videos. Nordenberg said he wants to “ensure that this type of disturbance is not repeated on any of our campuses ever again.”
Our riot actually seems tame in comparision.
