On the Japanese earthquake and the kegs and eggs riot -- wait, what?

In case you didn't realize, America has the choice of being like the upstanding and stoic Japanese survivors -- or rioting college students in Albany. Thankfully, Glenn Beck is here to point these things out:

By the way: Glenn Beck is coming to Albany April 16 for a "show" at the Palace.

Albany police post images of alleged kegs and eggs rioters

apd kegs eggs rioters screengrabThe Albany Police Department has pulled still images from the kegs and eggs riot video and posted them in an effort to identify the alleged rioters. The poster is embedded after the jump.

Said APD chief Steven Krokoff in a letter that accompanied the pics:

The Albany Police Department recognizes that we as a community have an obligation to the colleges, universities and the citizens of Pine Hills to hold those individuals accountable for their actions. Working together to meet this obligation is an important step in demonstrating to the entire nation that a small group of individuals cannot escape their responsibility for tarnishing the name and reputation of the City of Albany, residents, and college and university students.

UAlbany says students involved in the riot could face suspension and expulsion. [TU]

Reminder: the neighborhood cleanup being organized by UAlbany students is this Friday.

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
