Students allege police misconduct BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA The Daily Wildcat
When Tim Decker heard people cheering out on University Boulevard after the Arizona men’s baskeball team lost on Saturday night, he left his dorm to see what was going on. Decker, a biology freshman, stood on the corner of University Boulevard and Tyndall Avenue, observing the crowd chanting “U of A.” He said people began to get aggressive when the cops showed up. Decker said he was alone when a cop approached him, asking him to back off the street. Decker asked, “Why?” because he believed he

wasn’t doing anything wrong and was standing on public property by himself observing the scene. “The next thing that I knew is I was hit in the face with a nightstick, and then I took off my hood and I put my hands up and I was like, ‘That’s assault — you’re not allowed to do that,’” Decker said. “And the next thing that I knew, I was being grabbed by police officers, and they all started hitting me and beating me and telling me I was resisting when I was screaming, ‘I’m not resisting,’ and it was all pretty scary. I was a little confused about why everything was happening.” During Saturday night’s clash between crowds and officers of the Tucson Police Department 15
people were arrested, nine of them UA students. Decker said about six officers grabbed him and hit him with their fists, and he was also hit with batons a few times, leaving a lump on his head, scrapes on his knees and marks all over his body, including one on the back of his neck. Decker was taken to a van, where he stayed with about nine other students for two hours until the area was cleared. After being charged for unlawful assembly, Decker was released. There are videos of Decker clashing with police on YouTube and other social media sites. One of the most popular videos circulating of the clash shows a woman being
slammed into a bench by an TPD officer. The woman in the video, Christina Gardilcic, is a senior studying psychology and Latin American studies at the UA. Gardilcic is currently in discussions with her lawyer regarding a potential lawsuit against TPD. Unlawful assembly is defined in Arizona Revised Statutes as “1. Assembling with two or more other persons with the intent to engage in conduct constituting a riot … or 2. Being present at an assembly of two or more other persons who are engaged in or who have the readily apparent intent to engage

The Arizona House of Representatives has proposed a budget with lower-than-expected funding for the UA for the fiscal year 2015. If passed, the budget could result in program cuts and raised tuition in the future. The $537 million proposed funding for higher education makes up less than 6 percent of the $9.2 billion state budget, according to a press release from Arizona Students’ Association.

Though funding was increased from last year, the currently proposed amount would likely result in raised tuition for students in the long run, said Zachary Brooks, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council. Under the proposed budget, the UA will receive 37 percent of the funding it needs from the state. The rest of the funding comes from tuition. This is a significant contrast to 2008, when UA was receiving two-thirds of its funding from the state, Brooks said. The increase in funding is not enough to curb the trend of

MEN’S HOOPS RELOADS WITH FIVE RECRUITS
Student groups weigh in on the abortion debate with displays on the UA Mall on Tuesday

A potential high speed passenger rail could have a big impact on the large population of UA students from Phoenix. The Arizona Department of Transportation has been studying the possibility of building a rail line connecting Tucson and Phoenix and has currently narrowed down the route options from seven to three, according to the ADOT website. According to ADOT, the decision to narrow it down to these three options was based on technical evaluations as well as public input. ADOT worked closely with the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration and local governments in Maricopa County, Pinal County and Pima County to make this decision. For UA students from Phoenix, a high speed passenger rail may mean a quicker, more convenient way to get home. Chris Rosales, a psychology junior from Phoenix, said that while he currently only goes home about two times every semester, he would be able to more often if there were a train connecting Tucson and Phoenix. “It’s kind of inconvenient to have to drive when I could use that two hours for studying or something else,” Rosales said. The passenger rail line would be a blended service, according to ADOT. An express service would have a few stops between Tucson and Phoenix, while a local service would stop at several different communities along the way. There is no construction or funding in place for the project yet, according to ADOT. Nida Raja, a microbiology junior, and Rob Busick, a first-year graduate student studying urban planning, both agreed that a passenger train would make the trip much easier. Raja said she sometimes takes the shuttle from here to Phoenix because she doesn’t feel like driving. “[A train] would be much more convenient,” Rajas said. Busick, who goes home about once a month, said he would probably go home more often if there were a passenger rail connecting the cities. “Even though it only takes two to two-and-a-half hours to drive, I just get really tired from driving,” Busick said.

increasing tuition costs, Brooks said, and added that the UA is still recovering from funding reductions that started in 2008. “If your budget was cut for the last five years and suddenly you get a little bit more, it doesn’t feel like more, because you’re still catching up on your bills from the last five years,” Brooks said. Additional state funding would not only lighten the burden on students, Brooks said, it often returns a profit: Each dollar spent on higher education by the state yields $6 in return. Students with less debt contribute to
the economy, Brooks said, and are more likely to invest in real estate or seek graduate degrees, becoming more versatile and valuable workers. The House budget was heard and reviewed by the Senate on Monday and will return to the House for further revisions later in the week. If passed by both the Senate and the House, the budget will then go to the governor’s desk, where Gov. Jan Brewer will have the power to pass or veto the budget. Rep. Ethan Orr, R-District 9,

Katie Kilby, a public health senior and member of the Pride Alliance, said it wasn’t an accident the CHOICE Fair happened at the same time as the Genocide Awareness Project. “We’re out here because we knew they were coming,” Kilby said. “This is an intentional counter. … It’s not that these just happened at the same time across from each other in the grass.”

Kilby said it’s important for students to know, in the face of the Genocide Awareness Project, that there are a multitude of options available in dealing with pregnancies. “I know that free speech regulations allow [the Genocide Awareness Project] to be here,” Kilby said, “so I’m just happy to be a part of an initiative that works to provide other information to people.” Scheller said she hoped the photos from the project will help women make more informed decisions. “We’re not here to change the world in a day,” Scheller said. “But if we can save at least one person from choosing abortion … to see the sanctity of life, the meaning of it, we just want to give that option to people.”

in conduct constituting a riot … and knowingly remaining there and refusing to obey an official order to disperse.” Sgt. Chris Widmer, a TPD public information officer, said everything was going OK until smoke bombs that had been set by a crowd member went off, causing people to take over the street. Officers did what they were ordered to, which was to maintain control on University Boulevard to prevent such a gathering, he said. Widmer said past incidents from 1997 and 2001, when riots broke out after championship games and people flipped cars over and damaged businesses, taught the department that violence can result from large gatherings. “The only option they did not have was to stay in place or to move east past the line,” Widmer said. “When we allow crowds to mingle and we allow them to build up and to kind of feed on each other, historically, that’s when the disorderly conduct starts.” Decker said the crowd of people seemed like a tailgate to him, where people were simply showing their pride for the university’s basketball team. Decker added that he didn’t think police were trained very well for what happened and were probably scared because they weren’t sure what to do. “When they were going into it, just because of what’s happened in the past, they automatically thought whatever was going to happen — it was going to be a riot, and that’s how they were going to deal with it,” Decker said. “But I thought that was the wrong way of going about it.”
Ahva Sadeghi, a philosophy, politics, economics and law junior, said she was leaving Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company and trying to get to her car when she was stopped by a TPD officer. The officer told her she couldn’t go that way, so she turned around and tried walking toward Euclid Avenue, and an officer kept her from walking that direction as well. An officer then dropped a pepper canister in front of Sadeghi, releasing pepper spray in her face and causing her to cough nonstop for about an hour and a half after the incident, she said. Sadeghi added that her throat still hasn’t cleared since Saturday’s incident. She said police should have only interfered if fights broke out or if students were being harmed, which she didn’t see happening on Saturday after the game. Students were simply high-fiving each other in the crowds, she added. “Students should be able to celebrate a win or to be sad as long as there is no one harmed,” Sadeghi said. “Here at U of A we’re a community. … I feel like a direct win when my basketball team wins, and I feel a direct loss even though I wasn’t at the stadium, even though I had nothing to do with the win. That’s how united our school is, and we’re very passionate, but passion shouldn’t be confused with fury.” Sadeghi said her parents were concerned because they don’t live in Tucson, and they rely on the local police force to protect her when she’s away for school. “They don’t want the police to put us in harm’s direction,” Sadeghi said. “My parents were so nervous. I couldn’t carry a conversation with them because I couldn’t stop coughing.” — Follow Stephanie Casanova @_scasanova_

Passiveaggression more harm than relief BY Kasey Shores The Daily Wildcat
e’ve all been in that situation where we are screaming bloody murder at someone in our mind, but instead, we simply smile, nod and continue to be on our best behavior. I’m not saying we should be going around shouting up a storm at anyone who provokes us, but we should at least acknowledge the reason we’ve got all this pent-up frustration. Many people are passive-aggressive because it’s easy. We want to avoid confrontation, laugh things off and let people push us to our limits. All because we’re afraid to get a little bit assertive. But passive-aggression isn’t healthy. Dr. Daniel K. Hall-Flavin, a doctor at the Mayo Clinic, wrote that though passiveaggressiveness itself is not a mental illness, it can be a trait of other mental illnesses and can be cause for seeing a therapist. A passive-aggressive person uses indirect techniques to express his or her frustrations. Hall-Flavin said that instead of handling resentment or other issues directly, passive-aggressive people take out their anger by simply refusing to complete a project, missing deadlines and talking behind another person’s back, all while enthusiastically agreeing with the directions given to them. That kind of behavior can easily make it hard for a person to maintain good personal and professional reputations. The article “Effects of Habitual Passive-Aggressive Behavior” from mysahana.org says that passive-aggression can’t exist in a vacuum. There has to be a relationship and both people are negatively effected. “Needless to say, passiveaggression is not only detrimental for the person exhibiting the behavior,” the article says, “as it keeps their partners and friends at a distance so they never know a truly intimate relationship, but it also severely affects the health of their relationship and of their children.” The capacity of passiveaggression to affect others’ health and create unbalanced relationships leads some to argue that it is a form of domestic abuse called covert abuse. Cathy Meyer, a divorce coach, wrote in a divorce help article that passiveaggressive people frequently exhibit such behavior. “When someone hits you or yells at you, you know that you have been abused,” Meyer wrote. “It is obvious and easily identified. Covert abuse is subtle and veiled or disguised by actions that appear to be normal, at times loving and caring. The passive aggressive person is a master at covert abuse.” Passive-aggressive people tend to keep their feelings inside. It’s normal to get angry, but it’s not healthy to not communicate it. It may not even be the person’s fault — passive-aggressive people often can’t even identify their own feelings, and are uncomfortable when confronted aggressively. These people need to be confronted in a productive way in order for them to gain insight into the consequences of their behavior. It’s best to coax passiveaggressive people out of their emotional shells. We need to make our feelings the subject of the conversation, instead of their bad behavior. Instead of yelling at them, we should confront their behaviors one at a time in a private, safe place. If they need their space, let them have it. Beyond the annoyance passive-aggression causes and its potential to exacerbate even small issues in our relationships, it rarely ever solves anything. There are more constructive ways to handle communication issues, without unnecessary subtlety or subterfuge. Just be clear, honest and direct. — Kasey Shores is a journalism sophomore.

Clash still raising questions H
undreds of fans dashed into State Street in Madison, Wisc., on Saturday night, packing it from sidewalk to sidewalk, screaming and chanting at the top of their lungs. In celebration of the men’s basketball team’s victory over the Arizona Wildcats, Wisconsin fans clambered on top of scaffolding, climbed trees and dangled from windows, while members of the University of Wisconsin Marching Band serenaded the crowd. About 30 people even decided to check out the view from the top of a bus shelter, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It was a scene much like the one that was taking place at the exact same moment on University Boulevard on Saturday night. But something was different, and it wasn’t just the jubilant atmosphere. In videos of the Madison, Wisc., celebration, there’s not one riot police officer in sight. No batons at the ready. No gas masks. No lines of black-clad officers amassing outside trendy clothing stores.
Likewise, although police were present, no arrests were made, and the crowd eventually dispersed more or less peacefully. Wildcat fans may remember that the men’s basketball team suffered a loss in the Elite Eight just a few years ago, in 2011. That year there was nowhere near the kind of outburst from fans we saw on Saturday. What made this season, this game, this night so chaotic? Of course, the crowd on University Boulevard was declared to be an unlawful assembly because crowd members began throwing beer cans and other objects at the police. There’s no denying that the people who chose to do so were way, way, out of line. But let’s back up. Why the heavy presence of riot police on the street in the first place? Why not have a handful of officers on the street with riot police ready to join the fray if necessary? Why send the message from the get-go that something was going to happen? Could the clash with the police have been avoided if it had been
just a dozen University of Arizona Police Department officers out there? The crowd on University Boulevard that night was largely made up of college-age young adults. We’re all used to seeing UAPD cars cruising around when the bars let out. Most students have had some contact with UAPD before, and maybe more importantly, UAPD knows college kids. Students who find themselves staring down a wall of police officers in riot gear will act defensively. And where are UA administrators in all this? Dean of Students Kendal Washington White sent out an email blast on Friday afternoon asking students to “Bear Down With Pride” and saying the Dean of Students Office was “working closely” with Arizona Athletics, UAPD and local law enforcement to coordinate a larger police presence during the tournament — but there’s been no word from President Ann Weaver Hart.

He brazenly declares that “It’s obvious that according to data on hoop-math.com.

FIVE have spent time in the D-League. It seems like Gordon’s self-esteem isn’t in as much danger as our resident psychologist, Mr. Kelley, would make it out to be. Finally, Kelley chooses to use former UA stars Derrick Williams and Ka’Deem Carey to show us why Gordon should stay in school. He believes that Gordon needs to stay to improve his shooting in a sophomore season. Something to the tune of improving his 3-point shooting by 31.8 percent and his free-throw shooting by 6.5 percent would certainly be lauded. Those numbers just so happen to represent the jump Williams had from his freshman to sophomore year. And that extra year sure made Williams ready, didn’t it? As for Carey, who Kelley lauds for staying and accruing UA records, well, he left for the NFL draft at the first chance he had to do so, but Kelley doesn’t think Gordon should exercise his right to leave for the NBA in the same way. It’s not as though our Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and newly minted owner of UA’s freshman rebounding record is short on accolades, either. He ends by proclaiming that “If Gordon leaves right now, his UA career will be a sad tale of what could have been.” So is that it or is it one of those other overly-simplistic reasons? Tell us what’s best for him. Kelley doesn’t substantiate his sweeping generalizations and just wants Gordon to forgo the NBA so we get another exciting year of “Lob Pueblo” in McKale Center. How exactly will staying in school help Aaron Gordon, the person? Kelley never gives us a legitimate answer. If Gordon chooses to stay, it will be because he wants to take another shot at winning a championship and not for any of the misguided reasons Kelley provides. Gordon simply doesn’t owe us or need us anymore. — Max Rodriguez

POLICE BEAT BY HANNAH PLOTKIN
The Daily Wildcat
Sharing is caring
Two UA students were cited for possession of marijuana on March 28. A University of Arizona Police Department officer was conducting rounds in Coronado Residence Hall when he smelled the odor of marijuana coming from a dorm room. The officer knocked on the door and identified himself to the two students inside. The students let the officer into the room, and he asked the two residents if they had any marijuana. They said yes and handed over a Ziploc sandwich bag containing .04 grams of marijuana, confirming it belonged to both of them. When the officer asked if they had any paraphernalia in the room, the two said no and that they usually use rolling papers, but had recently run out. The students were informed of their rights, cited and released.
Watch the cane
UAPD officers responded to a dispute between a resident assistant and students in a residence hall on March 28. Officers were dispatched to the hall to investigate an RA’s report of students arguing with her, using profanity and possessing a cane that could be used as a weapon. Upon arrival, the officers found the RA so upset, she was shaking. She pointed toward a room and said she wanted the residents inside arrested. An officer saw the two residents crying through the open door but was denied entrance to the room. Upon speaking with the residents, officers learned the dispute had started when the two residents returned home during quiet hours. They were knocking on doors with a cane and the RA confronted them, asking for their CatCards. The residents claimed the RA was rude, and they refused to give her the CatCards. Officers advised the residents that they have to provide CatCards to RAs when asked. No arrests were made.

NUMBER OF THE DAY
Arizona men’s basketball has had 20 players selected to the McDonald’s All-American game. The current Wildcats who played in the McDonald’s All-American game are Aaron Gordon, Rondae HollisJefferson and Brandon Ashley.
Arizona men’s basketball could lose four players to the NBA Draft, but UA fans don’t need to hit the panic button. The Wildcats’ recruiting class is ranked No. 3 by Scout.com, No. 4 by 247Sports.com and Rivals and No. 9 by ESPN. Today at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN, many Arizona fans will get their first look at the UA’s future with Arizona signee Stanley Johnson playing in the Boys McDonald’s All American Game.

UA alums take to airwaves
Junior college transfer emerges for Arizona The Daily Wildcat
In a year of disappointment and inconsistency for Arizona baseball, sophomore pitcher Cody Hamlin has paced the program’s injury-ridden rotation and provided some stability to an otherwise shaky pitching staff. In 2013 at Western Nevada College, Hamlin had a 1.45 ERA, went 10-2, struck out a team-high 76 batters and only walked 11 over 87 innings pitched. His performances that season earned him the Scenic West Conference’s Pitcher of the Year award, and before long, Hamlin captured the attention of Arizona head coach Andy Lopez. At the time, the Wildcats were looking to rebuild and re-identify themselves after the program had failed to qualify for the postseason just a year after winning the College World Series. Then Arizona’s No. 1 and No. 2 starting pitchers were selected during the MLB First-Year Player Draft. Former Arizona pitcher Konner Wade decided to pursue his professional ambitions after being selected as the 199th overall pick in the seventh round by the Colorado Rockies. However, senior pitcher James Farris, the UA’s Saturday starter from 2013 who was drafted in the 15th round by the Houston Astros, opted to return to the Wildcats.

REDSHIRT SOPHOMORE pitcher Cody Hamlin has established himself as Arizona’s No. 2 starter in his first season at the UA.
“I’ve been very pleased with both Hamlin and Farris this season,” Lopez said, “[but] after it’s all said and done, [Hamlin] may end up being the Friday night starter. He’s been doing a great job in terms of execution.” Hamlin committed to Arizona last June. He was

Pac-12 power rankings: UW moves up 8. USC (13-13, 3-6)
BY JOEY PUTRELO
The Trojans just got their teeth kicked in at home against Washington, but in March, who didn’t? If this team is serious about salvaging its season, USC will at least win the upcoming three contest affair in Tempe, Ariz., with
The Daily Wildcat
1. No. 24 Washington (20-5-1, 8-1 Pac-12)
Posting an eye-popping 16-1 record in March, UW is the hottest team in the Pac-12 right now. It beat Gonzaga (9-14) 7-1 and then broke out the brooms against USC in Los Angeles, outscoring the Trojans by 35-9 over the weekend. I love to say I told you so — I said in last week’s power rankings that the Huskies wouldn’t remain unranked for long.
2. No. 7 Oregon State (21-6, 6-3)
The Beavers hiccupped on Saturday, losing to Arizona 11-2. But they still won the three-game series at Hi Corbett Field and dominated the ailing Wildcats by nine or more runs in the other pair of contests. At No. 7 in the NCBWA, OSU moved up one spot and is the highest nationally ranked program in the conference.
3. No. 9 Oregon (19-8, 6-3)
After one of the Ducks’ rougher weeks, when they went a combined 2-3 against San Francisco (13-13) and Stanford, UO dropped a couple spots from last week in the NCBWA poll. We’ll learn a lot about Oregon during a trip to Seattle this weekend in its attempt to snap Washington’s 10-game win streak.

expected to provide depth in the Wildcats’ starting rotation. Going into the season, Hamlin was pegged in the No. 4 spot. However, after junior pitcher Mathew Troupe — who was set to start Saturday nights — showed signs of discomfort in his elbow hours before opening night, Lopez chose junior pitcher Tyler Crawford to slide into the No. 2 spot to replace Troupe, calling on Hamlin to slide into the rotation’s No. 3 slot. This gave the 6-foot-3, 188-pound righty a chance to prove his worth and an opportunity
9. Washington State (12-13, 3-3)
CARLOS HERRERA/THE DAILY WILDCAT
ARIZONA FRESHMAN Evan Hebert pitches during Arizona’s 11-0 loss against Oregon State on Sunday at Hi Corbett Field. The Beavers dominated the three-game series with the Wildcats and moved up in the rankings.
4. No. 17 UCLA (16-10, 6-3)
It didn’t look good for the defending national champ to lose to ASU two out of three games in its own ballpark. But at 6-3, UCLA is tied with Oregon and Oregon State for the second-best Pac-12 record. Four nonconference matchups this week against unranked Loyola Marymount (17-11) and Long Beach State (13-13) are just what the doctor ordered for UCLA to gain some momentum.
5. ASU (15-11, 5-4)
For being unranked, the Sun Devils comprise a very good baseball club, but they’re still looking to break out and really start turning heads. Winning two out of three on the road against No. 17 UCLA wasn’t a shabby start.
to break into the weekend rotation. Hamlin shone in his first start, while Crawford’s mechanics faltered. That pattern continued to emerge, and pretty soon Hamlin swiped the Saturday-night spot. “I couldn’t be happier for him,” teammate and fellow junior college transfer Tyler Krause said. “He’s a great guy [and] is one of my best friends, personally. I’m just happy to see him contributing to the team. His presence on the mound is awesome.” Together, Farris and Hamlin represent the core of Arizona pitching. They have a combined record of 8-4, while the Wildcats as a whole
are 12-18, 2-7 in the Pac-12 Conference. Over his eight starts this season, Hamlin has compiled a 4-2 record, leads all starters with a 2.52 ERA and has only allowed seven walks over 53.2 innings. “Hamlin has been a pretty good contributor for us,” junior pitcher Tyler Parmenter said. “He’s been really successful this year and is a player who’s just gotten better since he’s been here. I think what he brings, his unique pitching style and the way he’s been effective in getting hitters out, has helped the rotation immensely.”

Boasting one of the Pac-12’s best team batting averages, it just shows how inconsistent Arizona’s pitching has been. Losing 21 games last season left the Wildcats out of the playoffs last year, and it looks like they’ll be losing a lot more than that in 2014.

Legendary opera composer comes to life in lecture by esteemed speaker BY Christianna Silva The Daily Wildcat
Legendary 18th-century composer George Frideric Handel had such an attitude that it is remembered even today. Once, when one of his singers complained of his accompanying method and threatened to jump on Handel’s harpsichord, Handel responded, “Oh! Let me know when you will do that, and I will advertise it. For I am sure more people will come to see you jump, than to hear you sing.” On Thursday, the Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program will present Ellen T. Harris as she gives a public lecture on the topic, “How Did Handel’s Audiences Hear His Operas?: Mary Delany and Floridante.” Ellen Harris graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1949, receiving the university’s Gyorgy Kepes Prize in 2005 for her contributions to the arts. Her book “Handel as Orpheus: Voice and Desire in the Chamber Cantatas” received both the 2002 Kinkeldey Award from the American Musicological Society and the 2003 Gottschalk Prize from the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Harris is the president of the American Musicological Society and a

fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Harris is a soprano soloist herself. She has sung the national anthem at Fenway Park and performed with John Williams and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Harris’ lecture on Thursday will focus
on Handel’s operatic compositions. He wrote many biblical oratorios, dramatic tunes based off of Greek tragedies and some patriotic works. Handel was known for using his humor to dissipate rough situations. At one point, controversy arose when Handel used material from another
musician, Giovanni Bononcini. When asked why he had borrowed another man’s compositions, according to gfhandel.org, he responded, “It’s much too good for him; he did not know what to do with it.” Jay Rosenblatt, an associate professor of music history, said that the lecture is “a wonderful opportunity to engage with a brilliant scholar whose research does not stop with the music by a great composer.” The subject of her lectures intrigues him even more. “Handel wrote the music for ‘Messiah,’ of course, portions of which are performed every Christmas,” Rosenblatt said. “But there is so much more to his story.” Rosenblatt said he expects Harris to “explore Handel’s music from political and social perspectives, the sorts of things that anyone interested in the history of early 18th-century London would find fascinating.” He added that the lecture will be from Harris’ point of view, as she intends to lead the lecture as if she and Handel were friends.
