High rises not the problem

Let me get this right: Some want to blame the State College riots on high rise buildings?

Come on! Plain and simple, the riots are caused by people who have absolutely no respect for the property of the State College borough and the local business owners.

Sadly, the parents of these young adults are probably saying, “My kid would never do that.” Again, sadly, yes they are.

Hopefully the court system will make these hooligans responsible for their actions and put them in jail for a while — maybe then and only then will some stop and think twice before vandalizing the community they live in. But again, sadly, their parents will deem that too “harsh.”

God help our country.
