Apparently some masked perpetrators have been pulling the Witte Hall fire alarms late at night, forcing grumbling students out into the cold. The university is investigating, but that’s not good enough for tired students… they want Dorm Justice:
The popular student connection website thefacebook.com has three groups dedicated to decrying false alarms in Witte. The most popular-“I Hate the Witte Fire Alarms and the Bastards who Pull Them!”-has 168 members.
Tampering with fire alarms is against both university and state statues and police investigate false alarms, according to Lieutenant Eric Holen of the UW-Madison Police Department. He added that if students have information about false alarms they are often willing to share with the police.
Meanwhile, students are in hot pursuit of the culprits.
“All I know is that there are people plotting against whoever did it,” Beckner said.
High. Fucking. Larious. Inspector Bluto is on the case! …well, in between heading over to Laura’s room to see what she and her friends have planned tonight, and going over to Memorial Union to play some pool, and studying for that Chem 103 quiz on Friday. But they’re TOTALLY gonna figure out and “punish” whatever diabolical genius is pulling the fire alarms and then running away.
