At approximately 3:28 a.m. on Sept. 11, a Utah Highway Patrolman and Price City Police officer arrived at Tucker Residence Hall to investigate a loud party among a few residents. Several students, including myself, stood outside in the parking lot early that morning and watched the police go into the apartment. As I stood with fellow students, one informed me of what had happened prior to the police arriving. A student on the second floor was attempting to sleep when loud noises in the room below him kept him awake.

Judge Not!
It seems likes something you’d grow out of by the time you graduate high school, but even in college, one may find it difficult to overlook appearances and stereotypes.
I know most of you will probably think I’m a bit weird for writing this. A lot of you will probably think something along the lines of, “Don’t judge a book by its cover. This is college. That stuff doesn’t happen.” And yes, I can see where you’re coming from.

Today the phrase “land of the free” has become an antiquated and almost spat upon statement. With some interest groups becoming fighters for equality, at what point do we decide what’s really equal and what is special treatment?
