Rescind Thon fines?

A Patriot-News editorial got my attention, and the attention of readers, clearly.

The editorial calls on police to rescind the fines levied against Penn State students canning for Thon over the weekend.

We published the story Sunday so CDT readers know about the fines.

The editorial questions why, and you can take a look if you'd like. What do you think? 

I can't see rescinding fines in this case and not in other cases. The students were warned by police, and they should pay up just like anyone else who faces fines.
