students could be feeding negative perceptions of the Uni-
versity's police force.
Some black students agreed with Brown.
"Communication in general is the problem or the cause of
tension between the black community and DPS," Martin of
NPHC said "I think a lot of people feel the same way. We
don't have a problem with DPS being at the event for secu-
rity, but many (students) don't understand DPS's practices,
such as (videotaping)."
Laban King, a member of the Black Student Union, said
the meeting was an important step in improving relations
between DPS and students.
"People need to personally know their rights and how
to respond to situations with the police," King said. "They
need to be knowledgeable of how to use the University if
they do have a complaint. It is the job of the University to
inform students and the responsibility of students to gain
and use that knowledge."
But Anderson said the meeting between students, DPS
and administrators was not productive as a whole because
DPS did not wish to change its security protocols.
"They were giving a rationale for what happened,"
Anderson said. "It was explanatory, but not really dealing
with attempts to change it."
Alex Moffett, a NAACP vice president, also had a
the michigan daily
negative reaction to DPS protocols. Moffett said policies
needlessly come at the cost of promoting a positive cam-
"The University has racial climate issues, as we have seen
through hate crimes and racial slurs," Moffett said. "Some-
thing needs to be done to improve the climate for all stu-
The meeting also involved discussion over DPS's crime
alerts, which many students perceive as racially biased and
For crimes believed to be a threat to public safety, DPS is
required by law to issue an alert with as much description as
quickly as possible, Brown said, adding that DPS is depen-
dent on victim and witness descriptions.
"One challenge is that most crime on our campus
appears to be perpetrated by people of college age, dressed
similarly to college students," Brown said. "They are pret-
ty clean-cut looking individuals. They aren't missing teeth
and they don't have a patch over their eye or a huge scar on
their face, which are distinguishing characteristics. So we
do the best we can."
In the early 1990s, the Michigan Legislature required
that DPS establish the Police Oversight Committee to
investigate allegations of officer misconduct and provide
recommendations concerning disciplinary action. Recog-
nizing the concerns of communities of color toward DPS
after the Icebreaker, LSA junior Timothy Wiggins - a
student representative appointed to the Police Oversight
Committee through the Michigan Student Assembly -
contacted DPS director Bill Bess to discuss DPS's crime
After meeting with members of the committee in early
October, Bess agreed to consult one of two student represen-
tatives from the committee before issuing future crime alerts
to ensure the language of the alert does not single out a par-
ticular group of people, Wiggins said. If consulted, Wiggins
- as one of the representatives - can recommend changes
to the language of the alert to make it more detailed.
"In the past, a lot of the crime alerts were singling out
races," Wiggins said. "Using this as a measure to counter
that helps dramatically."
Since the meeting, DPS has sought input from the com-
mittee for one crime alert, Wiggins said. He declined to give
details on the specific crime alert.
Brown said the decision to consult a committee
representative is not a rule or guarantee. Instead, it is
determined on a case-by-case basis. DPS has, however,
revised the crime alert description to say that suspect
descriptions are based upon witness and victim testi-
mony, she said.
While discussion over students' climate concerns contin-
ues between DPS and members of the black community, the
Ann Arbor Police Department will also speak at a NAACP
meeting this week to provide information on how the AAPD
deals with suspects and criminal activity in the areas off-

porters claim that Dow inherited UCC's liabilities along with
Dow denies any past or current responsibility for cleaning
up the disaster. In a statement released by the Midland-based
company, it explained that UCC and the Indian government
reached a court settlement in 1989 for $470 million, which was
put into a trust fund that still remains today.
"There is still responsibility that has not been taken," Col-
lins said. "Union Carbide just picked up and left. (The chemi-
cals are) all still there." Students for Bhopal wants Dow to
clean up the toxins, face a trial, provide long-term health care
and provide economic support for the victims.
The survivors of Bhopal remain ill today. Some of their
health problems include cancer, birth defects and tuberculosis,
as well as gynecological, neurological and respiratory prob-
The Indian Supreme Court closed the case, and all legal pro-
ceedings ended in 1991. "When UCC became a subsidiary
of The Dow Chemical Company in February 2001, the civil
litigation in India had been resolved for a decade," the Dow
statement said. The company claims all liability to Bhopal has
But Mathias, who played the part of a surviving victim, still
pins blame on the Michigan chemical company. "Dow claims
moral culpability, but not legal culpability," he said.
