When I first read about the riots at Hampden-Sydney College, I was absolutely shocked. I was concerned for both the students affected by the conflict and the students who initiated the conflict. News articles, concerning the matter, briefly touched on any injuries, previous out-lashes or punishment that might have occurred. I felt that this article should be published at a more wide-spread level. Reactions like these should not be kept undercover. Then I reconsidered my opinion. There are many crazy reactions to reelections. In fact there is probably a more severe reaction occurring in a smaller, rural location right now. ‘Reaction articles’ like this tend to take an opinionated tone and provoke unneeded controversy. Articles like this are irrelevant and take on the layout of a twitter page. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad this story was covered however, I’m also glad it didn’t make it to the front page.
