Michigan State students riot ter basketball loss

EAST LANSING (AP) - The broken glass was
swept up, the broken windows were boarded and the
brnt cars were all gone yesterday as Michigan State
University students and East Lansing residents ven-
tered out into the warm spring sunshine after a night
ked by violence.
ut the anger and disappointment felt by many over
the rampage that left eight cars torched, 24 windows
broken in downtown businesses and 24 people arrest-
ed- so far - didn't go away.
Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo had
planned to send his team back to East Lansing yester-
day after a strong but disappointing showing against
Duke Saturday night in the NCAA semifinals.
.But the team decided to stay in Florida when their
first appearance in the Final Four in 20 years was over-
s dowed by bonfires and battles with police that
1e out even before the game had ended.
,'s totally embarrassing and ridiculous. That upset
me more than anything," Izzo said yesterday at the
team hotel in Sand Key, Fla. "If any Michigan State
students hear me, if you have season tickets, I'll buy
them from you and I hope you never come to a
Michigan State game again."
Of the 24 students arrested as of yesterday, 11 were

"These students would
have rioted if our
debate team made it
to the Final Four~.
- Terry Denbow
Michigan State University spokesperson
Michigan State students, East Lansing Police Capt.
Louis Muhn said. Two were charged with arson, while
19 were charged with disorderly conduct and one with
malicious destruction. Two students under age 21 were
arrested for possessing alcohol. Muhn said police will
be looking closely at videotapes to identify those
breaking the law.
Michigan State President Peter McPherson said any
student who endangered the lives of other students dur-
ing Saturday night's melee would be suspended. "Any
MSU student who is found to have burned a car will be
kicked out of school," he said. "Seldom have I been as
angry as I am today. Michigan State University has no
tolerance for behavior like this."

Although thousands of people packed into sports
bars, restaurants and campus's Munn Arena to watch
the game against Duke, McPherson and East Lansing
officials said the violence wasn't tied to the game.
"This was not a victory celebration. This was not a
celebration at all. This was not even a bunch of people
feeling bad about their basketball team," East Lansing
Mayor Mark Meadows said. "This was a group of peo-
ple who decided they were going to riot."
He noted that the first bottles were thrown at police
officers and the first fire reported shortly after 10 p.m.,
before the game even ended. Police found evidence of
furniture stockpiled for bonfires. Some students were
wearing T-shirts printed with words celebrating the riot
even before things got out of hand.
"These students would have rioted if our debate
team made it to the Final Four," Michigan State
spokesperson Terry Denbow said with disgust.
During the melee, students at the Cedar Village
apartment complex next to campus rolled, stripped and
burned a DeWitt Township police car. An East Lansing
fire truck had a windshield broken out by a brick, and
one sheriff's car also had its windows broken out.
Partygoers also blocked an ambulance leaving to take
the injured to a hospital.

One of many fires set during riots in East Lansing after the Michigan State
basketball team lost to Duke bums early yesterday morning. East Lansing police
reported that about 20 fires were started since the end of the game Saturday.

He explained that the board is plan-
ning to ask the students who voted at the
same time as the fraudulent votes were
cast to vote again. The board will decide
on the details of the revote after it hears
from ITD and DPS.
"If it can be shown that a candidate
or party was involved passively or
actively ... they'd be subject to immedi-
ate removal from the election,
Bernstein said.
If a suspect is found responsible for
tainting this semester's student govern-
ment elections he or she could face con-
sequences under the Code of Student
According to the Code, "making,
possessing or using any falsified
University document or record; altering
any University document or record
including identification cards and meal
cards;' is a violation.
Serowik said he does not think MSA
is the appropriate venue to file a Code
complaint, but other students and offices
on campus have the ability to record a
Code complaint about this incident.
While the MSA and LSA-SG elec-
tion boards attempt to wade through this
election mess and wait for more infor-
mation from ITD and DPS, candidates
are waiting anxiously for the election
"I don't have enough fingernails to
bite," said Blue Party MSA presidential
candidate Bram Elias.
Some eandidates expressed frustra-

tion with the entire situation. "A little bit
of the truth will never be known, said
Defend Affirmative Action Party MSA
vice presidential candidate Erika
Other candidates said they are more
concerned with the consequences candi-
dates and the suspect could face as a
result of this incident.
"Whoever this person is connected to
should be sanctioned severely" said
MSA vice president and Students' Party
MSA presidential candidate Sarah
"In theory we should redo the elec-
tion, but it's not realistic," said indepen-
dent LSA candidate David Taub.
In the future, Griffiths said ITD will
be able to prevent similar incidents from
occurring by installing more safeguards
on University computers and by contin-
uing its campaign reminding students to
be cautious when it comes to e-mail
Serowik said the MSA Elections
Board might redesign the online voting
Website for Fall elections so it requires
more information from students such as
social security numbers or birth dates.
He also said a redesigned online vot-
ing Website might allow election offi-
cials to track where fraudulent votes go
- the tracking would be used only if a
similar situation arises during a future
election. Knowing who benefits from
the false votes would help the elections
board take more immediate action and
determine the final vote.

Art of detained youth
exhibited at Union

By Jennifer Sterling
For the Daily
Beginning today, the Michigan Union Art
Lounge will host "The Freedom of Art" exhibition,
displaying work by boys and girls from detention
centers across Michigan.
The exhibit is a smaller sister show to the annu-
al "Art by Michigan Prisoners" exhibit. This year's
art exhibit will run through April 9 at the Union
4nd is scheduled to open officially with a public
reception April 1.
University students from the Undergraduate
Opportunities Research Program, independent
study students and some students from the School
of Art and Design curate the exhibit, which show-
cases artwork and poetry of juvenile youths.
During the past seven months, University stu-
dents have been "facilitating art workshops at train-
ing schools (and) juvenile centers, and they've
been doing a wonderful job and have all worked
very hard on the exhibition," English Prof. William
"Buzz" Alexander said in a written statement.
Art and Design sophomore Jessi Johnson, the
show's curator, said art allows the juveniles to
express their feelings and transgress the boundaries
that usually limit them in the detention centers.
Art and Design senior Anna Drew, who also is
involved in the exhibit, said art is a "positive way
for (juveniles) to constructively communicate"
where they are "not being restricted by their sur-

Drew added that the idea behind the workshop4s
to "work with them, not for them."
The young artists come from Adrian, Boysvilfe,
Vista Maria and Maxey Boys Training Centers. They
have completed more than 50 works utilizing van
ous styles and media, including acrylic and collagM
The idea for the exhibition evolved from a discus-
sion between Alexander and Johnson last spring.
"The idea behind the exhibit is fairly simple: It
gives the youth a chance to show their talent, gives
them a chance to help us break our myths about
incarcerated youth, gives them a chance to let us
know who they are and where they are and to ge't
us thinking a little more deeply and authentically
about what we're doing in this country by locking
up so many people," Alexander said.
"Students learn to develop their own skills at
enabling youth to find art that is in them," Alexander
"They go to some places they are unlikely to have
gone otherwise. They are taught by the youth. Thy
get to think about their own relationships to the juve-
nile facilitates and prisons that surround Ann Arb r
within an hour's distance" she said.
"They have a chance to think about their own
careers and lives. It is a project we are hoping to
extend and repeat,"he added.
The exhibit has several sponsors, including UROP,,
the Union, the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts,
the Prison Creative Arts Program and Michigan Book
& Supply.
