three females were given the
opportunity to pick the perpetra-
tor out of a photo lineup. How-
ever, no girl was able to pick out
Harrison 100 percent of the time.
In fact, Cunningham picked
out two older men in their SOs
twice when looking at the photo
Chambers suggested that there
was not enough evidence to con-
vict Harrison in all four cases
because the three girls did not
clearly see the man's face.
"The issues are obvious. There
are identification problems where
the individuals picked out 50-
year-old men," Chambers said.
However, Blaine Longsworth,
the prosecuting attorney, said the
crimes must have been committed
by the same man. "There is signif-
icant commonality among all of
these cases concerning who com-
mitted the crime and how it was
committed," Longsworth said.
Longsworth pointed to pat-
terns in the cases: All of the inci-
dents occurred at night within a
small geographic area and the
man always had his pants down
below his knees and used his
"These reveal unconvincingly
that it was the same person commit-
ting all of the crimes, and I would
ask the court to bind (the four.
counts) over," said Longsworth.
Judge John Collins, however,
said the trial court would have to
decide whether or not to join the

developer was offering to build additional student
housing without any cost to the University.
The University cited several possible areas in
which it could potentially incur financial respon-
sibilities due to the development.
Kosteva said this development has the poten-
tial of adding $300,000 to the University's annual
operating costs, $800,000 to $900,000 to the
implementation of additional bus services to
accommodate students and a variety of other costs
that could be felt by adding such a large concen-
tration of additional students to North Campus.
City Council members also pointed out that
the University has not built a new residence hall
since 1968 and that this project was a burden that
it should be shouldering, not the city.
Despite council complaints that the University
has not built a new residence hall in almost 40
years, the University plans to convert part of the
Frieze Building - which is the old Ann Arbor
High School building - into a residence hall to
be known as North Quad.
Yet several City Council members said that
North Quad will not provide any additional
opportunities for student housing.
The new residence hall will only re-locate stu-
dents currently living in the residence halls, while
the University does renovations on already-exist-
ing dormitories, Mayor John Hieftje said.
Kosteva assured that this relocation system
would only be a temporary fix and that North
Quad would actually provide the University with
additional housing, although he could not give a
specific time as to when this would occur.
"By not creating more residence halls as the
University continues to grow over the years,
the University is the greatest contributor to our
affordable housing problem," Hieftje said.
Despite the opposition to the plan, City Council
approved the project by a vote of nine to two.
United Campus Housing was very excited and
relived by the vote.
"Ann Arbor is a wonderful community, one of
the top ranked in the U.S., and the U of M, one of
the premier schools in the country. Our company
targets building premium living facilities in such
communities," Ambrose said.
City Council approved the project in Nov.
2003 as a Planned Unit development - a des-
ignation devoted to buildings that do not meet
zoning requirements. This designation requires
that United Campus Housing include 125 units
that meet affordable housing requirements in
its development .
The site will include 376 units with 896 bed-
rooms, said Daniel Ambrose, CEO of United
There are also several amenities under con-
sideration, some of which include a computer
lab, study lounges, laundry facilities on each
floor, high-speed internet, cable television and
a snack center.
Ambrose also said the apartments will be fully
furnished with private bedrooms and baths, a full
kitchen and living room and the building will
have key-card access.
This decision comes in light of the recent
approval by the council of a 6-unit, 36-bedroom
apartment located at 828 Greene St., near the
intersection of Main Street and Hill Street.
The venture was also met with opposition from
City Council, but was passed because the plan
met city zoning ordinances.
If United Campus Housing does not incur any
additional hiccups, Melrose Student Suites will be
ready for occupancy by the summer of 2006 and
no later than summer 2007, Ambrose said.

LSA freshman Dara Epison said the talk was received
well and that there were points that Walter discussed that
were especially prevalent to the future of the black com-
"I think her discussion on lack of leadership in the com-
munity and the tendency to sit back and accept information
and not to do anything with it, just let other people take a
leadership role," is a real problem in the black community,
The speech was attended by 15 people, and Carter said
she was disappointed in the poor showing for the event,
especially because she felt the message of self and respect
and honesty were important not only to blacks but to mem-
bers of different races as well.
LSA freshman Brittney Hall echoed Epison, saying
that she felt the message was universally important.
"I thought it was a very nice presentation. It had issues thatj
not only (affected) black people but all people. ... No people
should feel ashamed or feel they have to suppress who they
are," Hall said.

which documented the plight of union workers at
Coke bottling plants in Colombia. The movie was
told through interviews with union members who
had been threatened or had attempts made on their
lives by paramilitaries, who, they allege were in
league with managers of the bottling plants.
LSA student and Green Party member
Nat Damren gave a speech on the history of
paramilitaries in Colombia, stressing why it
was necessary to take action against Coke.
"We should not allow corporations we do
business with to contract out their responsi-
bility for ensuring human rights, labor rights
and environmental standards," said Duran,
who was the Green Party candidate for the
University Board of Regents last year.
Lori Billingsley, the issues director of Coca-
Cola, denies all of the allegations of Coca-Cola
having connections with illegal armed groups.
The company has conducted investigations and has
found no evidence linking Coca-Cola Company or
any of their bottling franchises to paramilitaries,
"The allegations are false. We have been in
Colombia for 70 years and have been an exempla-
ry member of the business community. It is out-
rageous to believe that the Coca-Cola Company
would have anything to do with this type of behav-
ior," said Billingsley. "One of the unions in Colom-
bia that represents the bottlers, SinalTrainbec, have
publicly stated that they don't have a single indica-
tion that Coca-Cola or any other bottler has links
to armed groups," she added.
The effort by universities and colleges across
the country to break off economic ties with Coca
Cola has been widespread. Already, six American
colleges, including Bard College, Oberlin College
and Carlton College, have ended their contracts
with Coca-Cola. The Michigan Student Assembly
will be voting on a resolution endorsing the termi-
nation of Coke contracts next Tuesday.
The coalition wants the University to end its
contracts with Coca-Cola because it believes the
company violates the vendor code that vendors
that do business with the University must be ethi-
cally responsible. University President Mary Sue
Coleman's Task Force for Purchasing Ethics and
Polices created the vendor code in March of last
year. The Dispute Review Board also exists at the
University to make sure companies are in compli-
ance with the code.
Members of the coalition have mixed
feelings on how well the administration has
dealt with the proposal. Most say that the
purchasing services department has been
fairly responsive, but said that the dispute
review board has been continually putting
the issue on the back burner.
The administration disagrees, saying that it is
just at the beginning of the investigations and is
following proper procedure.
"(The Dispute Review Board's) role is to
review complaints precisely like this one. So
they are considering the issue and that's the
right place for it to be dealt with," said Univer-
sity spokeswoman Julie Peterson.
