Commission (SRC).
Hinte added, however, that since
the University police were forced to
hand out citations for upwards of
$100 under state law at Hash Bash,
as opposed to the $25 city fine, cam-
pus attention may soon be refocus-
ing on this new law enforcement
"We'll be interested to see the
outcome of the Hash Bash trials ...
It was one of our concerns that the
new campus police force would be
used to enforce laws not of this
cQmmunity," Hinte said.
-And with the autumn cries of
anti-deputization protestors long
since replaced by anti-war rallies,
and most recently with the chants
of striking TA's, Hinte fears that
students are becoming more com-

placent toward the police force.
For although the University has
created the Campus Safety and
Security committee, an oversight
committee composed of students,
faculty and staff, Hinte said, "there
is still no mechanism for individu-
als to be involved in making the
policies that control the police
force. It's as if the University has
its owned hired guns - they can do
whatever they want."
Walter Harrison, executive di-
rector of University relations, said
yesterday he thinks the University
police have proven they exist to up-
hold the law, and not infringe on
student's rights.
"I think a lot of students' tem-
pers have cooled on the issue ... I
think first semester the police did a
good job. But recent incidents, like
Robert Guise taking a machine gun
to the administration building last

week, indicate that you're never go-
ing to stop everything," Harrison
said. "We're in a more dangerous
situation than people think."
Both Harrison and Provost
GilbertWhitaker, who helps over-
see the advisory committee, said
yesterday that, since the dis-
agreement over ordinances at Hash
Bash, the relationship between the
city and University police needs to
be resolved.
"It's too early to say what the
situation will be next year,"
Whitaker said, "but we are dis-
cussing the problem."
At last night's city council work
session, Mayor Liz Brater agreed
with the administrators.
"I think it's very necessary that
we get a viable contract in place,
which we don't have right now.
Then a lot of things have to be
ironed out," Brater said.

"I think we should seriously
consider it because most citizens
have shown interest in having a ref-
erendum," Brater said.
Those on the council who voted
to approve the bonds cited surveys
indicating citizen support for the
structure, as well as the amount of
time and money the city has already
spent on it.
Democrat Robert Grady, who re-
cently filled Brater's council seat
when she became mayor, said he
needs more information before he
decides how he would vote.
Councilmember Kirk Dodge (R-
Second Ward) said, "The referen-
dum's part of the Democratic pro-
cess, so I can't be opposed to it."
But he said he hoped the council
could resolve the issue itself: "I
guess a referendum is tantamount to
saying the council wasn't capable of
generating a consensus with the

Supreme Court to hear appeal
on case of porn entrapment

Supreme Court agreed yesterday to
hear the appeal of a Nebraska farmer
convicted of receiving government-
mailed "kid porn," setting up a key
test of undercover sting operations.
The justices said they will decide
whether Keith Jacobson unlawfully
was entrapped by Postal Service in-
vestigators who, posing as pornog-
raphers, repeatedly mailed him of-
fers until he accepted one.
A decision is expected sometime
in 1992.
Lawyers for Jacobson, 57, said
his rights were violated because he
was targeted by the undercover in-
vestigation even though government
agents had no reason to believe he
had committed, or was likely to
commit, a crime.
In the case, Jacobson was con-
victed of receiving in 1987 a copy of

a magazine called "Boys Who Love
Boys," described in a catalog as "11-
year-old and 14-year-old boys get it
on in every way possible."
'The Constitution
doesn't require
reasonable suspicion
of wrongdoing before
the government can
begin an undercover
Appeals court
Jacobson, who lives near
Newman Grove, Neb., was sentenced
to two years' probation and 250
hours of community service.
Police found Jacobson's name on

bookstore's mailing list in 1984. He
had lawfully ordered two nudist
magazines and a brochure from the
Over the next 29 months, under-
cover postal inspectors repeatedly
solicited Jacobson through the mail
to buy illegal pornography.
A three-judge panel of the 8th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
threw out, by a 2-1 vote, Jacobson's
conviction in January 1990. But the,
entire 8th Circuit court, voting 8-2,
reinstated it nine months later.
"The Constitution does hot re-
quire reasonable suspicion of,
wrongdoing before the government,
can begin an undercover investiga-
tion," the appeals court said.
In a dissenting opinion, Chief
Judge Donald Lay called the gov7'*
ernment's conduct "reprehensible.".

at a downtown bus stop who had
seen him on TV and knew he had
AIDS. The other time was in his
own apartment, by a man he had
brought back because he thought he
wanted AIDS education informa-
"I called the police and they
came and took a half-assed report
but they really didn't do anything,"
he said.
Rick, however, has done plenty
for Ann Arbor. He calls it AIDS
education. But people who have
worked with him say it goes far be-
yond that.
Jean Fields, an Ypsilanti resi-
dent, worked for Friends-Huron
Valley, an organization founded and
run by Rick. Friends-Huron Valley
gave financial and emotional sup-
port to people with AIDS. The or-
ganization closed because of a lack
of funding and community support,
said Fields.

"I would describe Rick as some-
one who maybe cared too much for
his own good. He gave a lot of him-
self to the organization but got very
little back - not only from the or-
ganization but the people he was
helping took it for granted," she
Rick also started a food bank for
AIDS patients in his apartment but
gave it over to the Wellness Center,
an AIDS organization in Ypsilanti,
when his health deteriorated.
"Once the organization closed
down he felt himself a failure," said
Fields, "He's lost a lot of friends
and it put him in a really depressed
state of mind."
Pastor Russell Fuller of the
Memorial Christian Church met
Rick at an interfaith teach-in on
"When I met Rick he was really
quite embittered. He felt there was
so little caring on the part of the
community, on the part of the gov-
ernment," Fuller said, "I think that
Rick has found remarkable reserves
of strength within himself. Now I
think he is a very compassionate
tender and caring kind of guy."
Rick doesn't consider himself
bitter at all. "AIDS has been a re-
ally important thing in my life over
all. I was a real self-abusive person,

drinking, drugging, and sleeping
"I think everything happens for a
reason," he said. "I don't blame
In the past few years, Rick has
spent much of his time educating
people about AIDS. He speaks to
large groups from the eighth grade
up and talks to anyone who might
need help coping. He carries a busi-
ness card that says "Rick Hayner -
AIDS consultant."
Cynthia Wrentmore, R.N.,
Communicable Disease Coordinator
for Washtenaw County, is a friend
of Rick's. She says he has dramati-
cally changed her life and taught her
a lot.
"He was willing to be visible
and has paid a terrible price for
that," she said, adding that many
people are afraid to be seen with

Rick because they don't want to be
associated with someone with
Rick doesn't talk much about the
future. He is sick all the time and is
starting to "get confused." He said
he knows his time is running out and
has made plans for his funeral and
memorial service. Pastor Fuller
will speak at the service.
Fuller said, "I don't look
foward to it but I will be very
proud to try and make it an experi-
ence that will reflect who he is."
Rick wants to die at home but
said it will depend on who's around
to take care of him. "Those I
thought would be here died before
me. They were all diagnosed after
me and that is really scary," he said.
"At the time of my diagnosis,
they gave me two years to live," he
said, "I'm still here."
