Headline of Daily Illini up for debate

“Police clear out event.”

That’s on the cover of the print edition of today’s Daily Illini.

And while it’s certainly not the DI‘s responsibility to force its opinion into the news story, I am left scratching my head and asking, “Why was this 1,200 person party cleared out and every football tailgate, or Joe’s bar brawl ignored?”

Oh, right. Read what sort of party was cleared out.

I suppose it’s just my take, but I am not sure why the whole party had to be cleared as the result of a fight that happened outside. Seems, um, interesting.
