Mayor, University plan,

by Erin Einhorn
Daily City Reporter
After Ann Arbor Police tear-
gassed students on South University
Monday night, Mayor Liz Brater
said she would like "to see how
these events transpired."
"We want to invite together a
group of officials from the police
department and representatives from
the student community and from the
University to evaluate what hap-
pened and see what can be done dif-
ferently," she said. The council has

also requested a completer
the evening's events.
The University admini
supports Brater's idea, sai
Harrison, executive directo
versity relations, and repres
from the University will pa
in the discussion.
Other members of city
said they wanted to gather1
formation before i

"I'm disappointed thati

report of Ingrid Sheldon (R-2nd Ward). "But I
have to be fairly supportive of our
istration police department."
d Walter Sheldon said she would like to
r of Uni- see the police report before asking
entatives the city administrator to conduct an
articipate investigation.
Peter Nicolas, the University
council graduate student elected to the 4th
more in- Ward seat on council just hours be-
making fore Monday night's teargassing in-
ident. cident, said he would definitely like
it had to to see an investigation. He said, "I'm
lmember sure there's fault on both sides."

van that had "Go Blue" scratched
into it, and the "smashed" front win-
dows of Baskin Robbins Ice Cream.
In addition, two fires were set
during the evening. The flyers and
posters covering the West Engineer-
ing kiosk were lit by a rioter and a
small fire in the bushes near the
UGLi was set, where some rioters lit
roman candle fireworks.
After the mounted force failed to
clear the streets, the officers sta-
tioned along South University store
fronts massed at the corner of East
and South University where they
prepared to sweep the street by foot.
The foot officers made progress
to Church Street, where the bulk of
the crowd was located. There the po-
lice officers were stopped and the
crowd began to push them back-
ward.
The crowd then became physi-
cally aggressive, and from his van-
tage point on top of the Brown Jug
restaurant, Police Chief Douglas
Smith decided to use teargas. "When
we start getting injured, the call is
pretty easy to make. We're just not
going to let our officers become tar-
gets," Smith said.
Smith also noted the disorderly
conduct that occurred during the
original sweep by mounted patrol as
a factor in his decision.
As a result of objects being
thrown at them by rioters, three offi-
cers were treated for injuries re-
ceived during the riot.
As the crowd chanted, "We want
teargas," the police officers donned
gas masks and fired several canisters
of teargas into the crowd.
The rioters retreated towat
Washtenaw Avenue until the gas
was dispersed by the evening's
strong wind.
"Your throat and your nose and
your eyes really hurt, I was seriously
crying and hacking," first-year LSA
student Sue Surowiec said.

MICHELLE -'UY/Daily
Students walk through the West Engineering Arch, which had been closed
yesterday due to the presence of residue from the teargassing on South
University Monday night after the NCAA championship basketball game.

The volley was repeated twice,
each time the crowd reacting with
more anger and less regard for the
toxic gas, eyewitnesses said. At ap-
proximately 1 a.m. Tuesday the
crowd pushed the police back
through the West Engineering Arch.
The police fired approximately
four canisters of teargas to hold the
crowd at bay while backing through
the arch.
The crowd began to thin out after
the police left the area.
Some students said they sup-
ported the police use of teargas.
An LSA senior who wished to
remain anonymous said, "I condone

it because things were getting way
out of hand. There were a lot of
people burning things. What else
could they do to protect public prop-
erty? The police bashing is totally
absurd."
LSA senior Mark Ritner said he
saw an officer hit a student over the
head. When he questioned the offi-
cer's actions and attempted to look
at his badge he said he was sprayed
in the face with a substance .

yesterday afternoon.
Associate Vice President for
Student Affairs Royster Harper -
who was present during the incident
- said she is frustrated by both
student and police behavior.
"I'm disappointed in every-
thing," she said. "I'm disappointed
that there were bottles thrown. I'm
disappointed that a much larger
crowd Saturday was more respon-

sible. I'm disappointed that our
students were teargassed."
Harper also expressed anger at
bar and store owners who sold
alcohol to underage fans.
"This incident does not repre-
sent a majority of University of
Michigan students," she said. "All
of us ought to be angry at those
who were there. This makes no
sense. We are better than this."
She said she had been receiving
calls from concerned students and
parents all day yesterday.

ronment on this camnus. I want

dent leaders will sit down to discuss
this issue in detail by the end of the
week.
"We need to focus on eliminat-
ing the kind of behavior that would
cause teargassing," she said. "We
should not have to have police on
the street helping us not to hurt
each other."

RESIGNATION
Continued from page 1
University's plea is hypocrisy in its
finest form."
But Harrison said he thinks it is
in the best interest of students to
give more input on the code.
"I think it's a good proposal,"
Harrison said. "What we are all after
is the best possible code."
But Warren said he thinks the
implementation of his code proposal
will be indefinitely postponed.
"I think that after a year, the
words 'we need more input' mean
'we want to stop the process,"' he
said. "This is a stalling technique."
But Associate Vice President for
Student Affairs Royster Harper said{
she thinks a proposal will be passed

after students are consulted.
"I think the new code should
really reflect student thought," she
said.
Harper questioned Warren's mo-
tivation for wanting to pass the code
quickly.
"It seems like it's more important
to him that it's done while he is in
charge than that it is done with
student input," she said.
LSA senior and MSA Rep. Todd
Ochoa said of Warren, "After a
whole year of kissing the administra-
tion's ass, he's finally figuring out
they're not working in the best in-
terest of students. Instead of con-
fronting the administration, he puts
on a little show in the theater of
MSA."
