LSU’s 45-10 demolition of Auburn sets up marquee Alabama matchup Alex Cassara Sports Contributor

Halfway through the third quarter of Saturday’s game between No. 1 LSU (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) and Auburn (5-3, 3-2 SEC), students in Tiger Stadium had already forgotten who they were playing. Chants of “We want ’Bama” peppered the second half of the Bayou Bengals’ 4510 victory over Auburn, a win that sets up what many are referring to as the national

championship against No. 2 Alabama. The same phenomenon took place at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Ala., with Crimson Tide fans chanting “L-S-U” during their 37-6 trouncing of Tennessee. It will be the first time the No. 1 and No. 2 teams face each other in SEC regular season play. The only other time LSU played in a 1-2 game was in the 2008 BCS championship against then-No. 2 Ohio State. CBS moved the upcoming battle with Alabama to a primetime matchup at 7 p.m., and

the contest will almost surely dictate the SEC West representative for December’s conference championship game in Atlanta. LSU’s depth was on display Saturday after suspensions to sophomore cornerbacks Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon and sophomore running back Spencer Ware, who were unavailable after reportedly failing a drug test.  Without Mathieu and Simon, two of the AUBURN, see page 8

With about 66 percent of the vote, Gov. Bobby Jindal celebrated his successful re-election Saturday night at a gala in the grand ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel. Hundreds attended the event to hear Jindal announce the election results. After the announcement, Jindal said he was “humbled and honored” to accept the charge of governor for a second time. Jindal carried all 64 parishes in the state and received the largest percentage ever won by a candidate in a Louisiana open ELECTION, see page 8

Buddhist religion cultivates inner peace, compassion Faith employs healing meditations Josh Naquin Staff Writer

Assume the lotus position, focus on breathing deeply, acknowledge thoughts as they present themselves, then let them go as you drift toward inner peace. This is what Zach Jenkins, practicing Buddhist and English literature senior, does several times a week to meditate. “Buddhism helps me maintain an aura of positive energy,” Jenkins said. Jenkins first became interested in Buddhism a year ago when working at Teavana, a national chain of tea shops. One day, a

customer sparked a conversation with him about a Buddha-shaped teapot and a discussion about Buddhism ensued. “I had always been interested in Eastern religions, so I went to check out the Buddhist Temple in town,” Jenkins said. Buddhism is a tradition established in fifth century B.C. in India, Paula You gotta said associhave faith Arai, ate professor A series looking at religions of Asian reliof the world at LSU gions. “It was based on the teachings of Shakyamuni, a prince who asked questions on how to experience liberation and peace while knowing people suffer,” Arai said.

She said Buddhism differs from other religions because it provides a path for followers to break the cycle of suffering, which is caused by three poisons – delusion, greed and hatred. To be liberated from suffering, one needs to dissolve the three poisons, she said. Afterward, the person is left with the freedom to be compassionate. “There are many kinds of meditation,” Arai said. “All are effective tools to remedy the poisons of suffering.” Jenkins practices Zen Buddhism, a school of thought within Mahayana, the most popular of the three branches of Buddhism. “The point is to focus on the here and now. With each new breath, new life enters you,” BUDDHISM, see page 6

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — The people who started the Arab Spring shared one of its earliest fruits on Sunday: a free election. Tunisians who brought down a dictator nine months ago waited for hours to select those who will help shape their fledgling democracy. “The old elections were fraudulent and this one is for our children and grandchildren so that even if I soon die, I will be happy and content,” said Tayyib Awish.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A statue of Jesus on U.S. Forest Service land over a Montana ski resort faces potential eviction amid an argument over the separation of church and state. The Forest Service offered hope late last week for statue supporters by withdrawing an initial decision to boot the Jesus statue from its hillside perch in the trees. But as it further analyzes the situation, the agency warned rules and court decisions are against allowing a religious icon on the 25-by-25 foot patch of land.

The declaration starts the clock on a transition to democracy that is fraught with uncertainty and could take up to two years. However, international concern about the circumstances of his death and indecision over what to do with his remains overshadowed a joyful day.

ACTIVISM

Baton Rouge sees first Occupy rally Brian Sibille Staff Writer

As the national Occupy movement spreads across the United States and Louisiana, the first Occupy Baton Rouge rally was held Saturday afternoon at the State Capitol Building. About 50 protesters gathered on the steps of the Capitol as crowd members took turns speaking. Protesters held signs and joined in various chants including, “Hey hey, ho ho, Bobby Jindal’s gotta go.” Chris Chemel, an organizer of the rally, told the crowd that Saturday’s protest was only the beginning of the Occupy movement in Baton Rouge. He said the movement will expand in upcoming weeks with plans to return to the Capitol next weekend. He said people could begin protesting by closing their accounts at national banks like Bank of America and Chase Bank. One woman spoke to the crowd about Louisiana’s high incarceration rate, claiming the state has the highest prison population in the world with many wrongly and unfairly sentenced prisoners. Crowd members ranged from adults with children to college students. Liz Lebron, mass communication graduate student, said the Occupy movement has helped troubled Americans focus on the cause of their problems. Occupy Wall Street began Sept. 17 as a movement with vague beliefs and causes, but various lists of demands have emerged as protesters — who call themselves the “99 percent” — remain on Wall Street while the movement spreads across the country and the world. Lebron said she became involved in the movement because many issues addressed by the “99 percent,” like job creation, high college tuition and student loan debt, resonate with her. Finding a job is a major concern, Lebron said. She said she wants to work in education, a field that has faced pay cuts and scrutiny. “I’m hopeful I’ll find a job,” Lebron said. Adam Ladd, disaster sciences management sophomore, said he joined the movement because he is dissatisfied with the influence large corporations have in the U.S. Ladd said he hopes the message of the movement spreads throughout Baton Rouge. The movement is important for everyone, he said, especially

college students. “We’re of age,” Ladd said. “We have a say.” English instructor and graduate student Kris Mecholsky said while he does not “preach” in class, he is open with students about the movement outside of the classroom. Mecholsky said the problems the Occupy movement have raised are becoming more apparent to Americans. He said every issue the movement has brought up is important and Occupy protests have drawn attention to those issues. “A large amount of people are springing up,” Mecholsky said. The movement has spread to many cities in Louisiana including Lafayette, Shreveport, Lake Charles and New Orleans. The Baton Rouge rally took place the same day as numerous

elections in Louisiana, including the gubernatorial race. Gubernatorial candidate and University public administration graduate student Androniki “Niki Bird” Papazoglakis was present at the rally and told the crowd she sympathized with many of their complaints. Representatives for Tara Hollis, another gubernatorial candidate, were also present. Both women lost to incumbent Gov. Bobby Jindal later that day. One woman in the crowd addressed Papazoglakis directly, reminding her that the purpose of Occupy Baton Rouge was not to endorse candidates but to spread the national movement’s message across the city.

Global cultures highlighted at International Heritage Festival Austen Krantz Contributing Writer

Participants flew banners, played instruments and danced to their native music in demonstration of their far away cultures at the Baton Rouge International Heritage Festival on Sunday held by the Baton Rouge Center for World Affairs at the River Center. BRCWA president-CEO Monika Olivier said the event mainly sought to educate people in an interesting way. “The goal is education — [to] provide it in a manner that’s fun and people don’t even realize they’re learning,” she said. The center hosted booths dedicated to countries from around the world, each grouped with others on the same continent. The booths offered cultural and geographical information about each nation, and

stamped visitors’ “passports” that were handed out at the entrance of the River Center. In addition, the booths encircled an open space where various cultures displayed their unique dances. “Our country is small and not

very well known here,” said Sylvia Manolov, who has manned the Bulgaria booth for the past five years of the International Heritage Celebration. Manalov said the event allows her to show elements of Bulgarian

culture to Baton Rouge locals who might not know about the country at all. Her booth displayed various clothing styles and maps of Bulgaria. Richard Abbott, a 14-year veteran of the event, donned a kilt to demonstrate his Irish heritage at the Ireland booth, where swords and instruments crowded the tables. Abbott, a member of the Baton Rouge Celtic Society of Louisiana, displayed information about various music, dog breeds and maps of the eight Celtic nations. “It’s great to share cultures,” Abbott said. “A lot of folks don’t know what their heritage is.” Felix Haase, an LSU transfer student, helped represent Germany at the event. “We’re trying to get basic info about Germany across and maybe inspire people to visit,” he said. The Germany booth also

included representatives from the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief, who helped pump out flood water during Hurricane Katrina. Outside, the event hosted other cultural booths as well as local and foreign foods like Vietnamese egg rolls and congee, Greek chicken and pork Gyros, and New Orleans-style sno-balls. The international groups also held a parade led by East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Kip Holden that included various cultures in their traditional dress and Scottish bagpipers.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

Autonomy to save University $52 million over five years

New nursing degree established Josh Naquin Staff Writer

The LSU System Board of Supervisors took steps to strengthen the University on Friday by approving resolutions that further autonomy and set up a new nursing degree. The board passed a resolution to give LSU System President John Lombardi the authority to grant an initial base level of autonomy to LSU institutions.

The opportunity to gain some measure of autonomy is outlined in the LA GRAD Act 2.0, legislation passed by the state legislature last session. The newly acquired autonomy will allow LSU institutions the ability to exercise more freedom from state agencies. The LSU System will now be able to retain unspent funds at the end of a fiscal year, execute individual contracts up to $49,999 in a 12-month period without further review by the state’s Office of Contractual Review and dispose of obsolete equipment without first getting the approval of another state agency, according to

Charles Zewe, LSU System vice president for communication. University officials predict LSU’s main campus will save more than $52 million over five years due to the operational freedoms autonomy would allow the campus. “This has been a long time coming and we certainly hope to reach the savings estimated,” Zewe said. In other business, the board approved a resolution to establish a doctorate degree in

nursing practice at the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. The degree is in demand and will help the University stay competitive, said Stephen Perry, vice chair of the academic and student affairs, achievement and distinction committee. The board did not specify when the future degree will be available for students to pursue. “We’re very happy to have this prized degree on the way to availability at LSU,” Perry said. The board also received

a progress report on the building process for the University Medical Center. The $1.1 billion project is set to be built in New Orleans and will have 424 bed spaces, according to Board of Supervisors member Bobby Yarborough. The teaching hospital is slated to be completed in February 2015.

Women’s Center hosts event to honor victims of violence Juliann Allen

Contributing Writer

In a time when many cases of rape and domestic violence go unreported, 250 University students and community members gathered Sunday at Memorial Tower to break the silence. Women shared their testimonies at Take Back the Night, an event held to honor victims and survivors of domestic violence in the Baton Rouge area. As local band Storywood cranked out tunes, Planned Parenthood and the Capital Area Family Violence Intervention Center tables lined up at the foot of the tower, offering information to participants. “If there is one thing that I would tell you tonight, you have everything you need to make a difference,” said East Baton Rouge Parish MayorPresident Kip Holden. He encouraged the crowd to

Supporters march Sunday evening in solidarity at Take Back the Night, an event to remember and honor the victims of domestic abuse and rape.

“use your eyes” to prevent domestic violence by recognizing that someone they know may be involved in an abusive relationship. Women wrote down their experiences, some of which they had never shared with anyone before,

on T-shirts as part of the Clothesline Project. The colorful shirts waved in the wind as they hung on a clothesline at the base of the tower, bearing phrases like “Be Free” and “No More Pain.” “This is a way they can express

it without dialogue,” said Jan Boydstun of Presbyterian Women of South Louisiana. She said the project is a way of “letting the dirty laundry out.” The mood grew solemn as several women stood before the crowd to tell their stories of overcoming physical and emotional hurt with strength and courage. “I said ‘no,’ and I spoke out,” said one woman who was raped by her roommate. “And it will stop in Baton Rouge if we all raise our voice and say it’s not okay.” Candle flames flickered as names of victims were read aloud, each candle representing a group affected by violence in some way. Christine Pontiff, philosophy sophomore, said she’s known four rape victims, two of which were her friends. “I think it’s a good idea to spread awareness,” she said. Though it began to rain, the

undampened spirit of the crowd prevailed as participants then carried picket signs with silhouettes of victims and marched around the Northgate area chanting, “Take Back the Night!” Catherine Hopkins, director of the Women’s Center, said the event’s name is to empower women not to be afraid. She said many incidents happen at night, but violence against women can happen at any time of the day. The Battered Women’s Shelter started the event in Baton Rouge in 1984 at Baton Rouge High School. Hopkins suggested that the event be moved at the University. “I think we want to show the community that we are supportive of these kinds of causes,” Hopkins said.

PlayStation showcases 3-D TV at Fred’s, Varsity Theatre Joshua Bergeron Contributing Writer

Patrons of Fred’s Bar in Tigerland partied in three dimensions on Friday thanks to Sony PlayStation’s “Dorm Crashers.” Dorm Crashers is a video game promotion touring college campuses across the nation. Four teams are currently traveling different areas of the country showing off new products.

The main product Dorm Crashers showcased was a 24-inch 3-D Sony TV connected to a PlayStation 3. The TV will be released to the public later this fall. Students could test out the 3-D capabilities by playing “MLB 11: The Show” or “MotorStorm: Apocalypse,” the only 3-D games currently available on PlayStation, Parris said. Lyndsey Leblanc, ISDS senior, said the graphics in

“MotorStorm: Apocalypse” are realistic, especially in 3-D. “It feels like you are actually in the game driving a real car,” Leblanc said. “The vibration of the controller really adds to the game and makes it more realistic.” First year Vet School student Chris Rumora shared Leblanc’s excitement, but expressed concern about the price. But he said the TV would be a viable replacement for his current one.

“The only thing I am worried about is how much it costs; $500 is a little pricey for me personally,” Rumora said. “If I could play movies and games on the TVs, I think it would definitely be worth buying.” The television set will be available Nov. 13 in a package that includes the TV, one pair of 3-D glasses, an HDMI cable and a copy of the game “Resistance 3.” One must already have a

PlayStation 3 in order to play video games on the TV. Another product showcased on the tour was Sony’s 600-watt Muteki stereo system. Dorm Crashers also stopped by The Varsity Theatre on Saturday morning to showcase the 3-D TV. Contact Joshua Bergeron at jbergeron@lsureveille.com

BUDDHISM, from page 1

Jenkins said. The Buddhist said he likes how his religion is “really free” and does not condemn the tenets of other religions. Jenkins was born into a family that practices Catholicism, and he said his mother and friends are supportive of his religion. “My father is a staunch Catholic,” Jenkins said. “I consider our talks about religion as discussions of growth.” Arai said she has noted a high proportion of Buddhist converts come from a Catholic background. She said Buddhism is similar to Catholicism because they both involve daily rituals,

and they both engage the body and mind. Jenkins said the philosophy behind Zen Buddhism has helped him maintain mindfulness in his life. “It helps me move past mistakes without lingering too much on the past,” Jenkins said. Jenkins said he always sees a variety of people when he visits the Tam Bao Temple on Monterrey Boulevard. There are people from all walks of life at the temple, from 40-year veterans to people just getting started, he said. Thich Dao Quang, Abbot at the Tam Bao Temple, said attendance at his temple has increased since he began working there in

2003. “Friday nights we have a meditation group of 65 to 70 people. Many are young people,” Quang said. He said many people visit the temple on Friday nights because the meditation and open discussion service are spoken in English, rather than Quang’s native Vietnamese. Tam Bao Temple holds its English service every Friday at 7:30 p.m. “There is tons you can learn from Buddhism; it helps develop skills which transcend all religions,” Jenkins said.

team’s top three cornerbacks, LSU actually allowed fewer passing yards than its average of 176.7, holding sophomore quarterback Clint Moseley to 145 yards in his first start. “[Our depth] is a great piece of the team,” said LSU coach Les Miles said. “A team is never about a single player. ... It is about the strength and the abilities of the sum. This is a quality team.” Senior cornerback Ron Brooks and senior safety Derrick Bryant saw more playing time as a result of the suspensions, and they both capitalized on the opportunity. Bryant had a sack on a first quarter third down to force a field goal to make the score 7-3. The field goal marked the only points Auburn scored until a garbage time touchdown by junior Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb in the fourth quarter. Brooks made a leaping pass break-up in the end zone in the first quarter and intercepted Moseley in the third for a touchdown, increasing the lead to 35-3 and initiating the Alabama chants. Sophomore running back Michael Ford started in place of Ware and led the team with 12 rushes and 82 yards. Freshman running back Kenny Hilliard benefitted the most, doubling his rushing attempts this season with 10 for 65 yards and reaching the end zone twice, once in the first quarter and once in the third. “[Hillard’s] a big back,” senior quarterback Jarrett Lee said.

“He’s running hard and he’s a smart player. ... He wants to get into the end zone and he wants to make plays and he’s doing just that.” Junior wide receiver Rueben Randle also scored twice on strikingly similar routes, streaking down the right sideline and snagging the ball in stride. Senior quarterback Jordan Jefferson tossed the first score from 42 yards out midway through the second quarter and Lee connected later that quarter for 46 yards on Randle’s next touchdown. Miles continued to juggle quarterbacks against Auburn. Lee went 14-for-20 for 165 yards and two touchdowns, while Jefferson went 2-for-3 for 54 yards and rushed four times for two yards. “Those guys are teammates,” Miles said. “They enjoy the success that each are having and they’re rooting for each other.” The defensive pressure was unrelenting, sacking Moseley six times. “Six sacks are unacceptable,” said Auburn coach Gene Chizik. “You don’t win any football games by allowing six sacks. That was an anemic job of protecting the quarterback.” Moseley said his first starting experience brought him back to high school. “I have definitely never been under that kind of pressure before,” Moseley said. “I thought that Sweet Water in high school was bad. This is a whole different league.” Contact Alex Cassara at acassara@lsureveille.com

primary, according to a news release from his campaign committee. “As long as I’m your governor, I will never coast,” Jindal promised. “I will give you my all.” Tara Hollis, D-Haynesville, placed second in the polls Saturday, garnering about 18 percent of the vote. No other candidate rose above 5 percent. University graduate student Androniki “Niki Bird” Papazoglakis earned 2 percent of the vote. Jindal began his acceptance speech by thanking LSU football head coach Les Miles for attending. “Every time I’ve run for governor, the LSU Tigers win a national championship,” he joked. He also provided projections for Louisiana’s coming years under his administration. “Louisiana has made great strides over the past four years,” Jindal said. “It wasn’t something I did, it was something we did as a state.” But he assured his supporters in attendance that Louisiana is growing and on the move. “We are relentlessly focused on the future,” he said. “And that is the spirit of America; that is the spirit of Louisiana.” Jindal reserved plenty of time to thank his staff and supporters, including the numerous University students in attendance who had worked for his re-election campaign. “We’ve got the opportunity to do great things,” Jindal said. “We will run out of time before we run

Also on the ballot Saturday were lieutenant governor candidates Jay Dardenne, R-Baton

Three of the five proposed legislative amendments on the ballot Saturday passed, including the appropriation of tobacco settlement funds, which can reach up to $45 million per year, into TOPS funding. This amendment also permanently added a tax of four cents on tobacco products into the state Constitution. The Louisiana Secretary of State website lists a currently unofficial voter turnout of about 36 percent. Contact Clayton Crockett at ccrockett@lsureveille.com

No Ware to be found Martin to discuss CHANCELLOR

Freshman Kenny Hilliard shines in Ware’s absence

future of athletics

Mark Clements Sports Writer

With his last name, freshman running back Kenny Hilliard had large expectations to fulfill. As the nephew of former LSU star running back Dalton Hilliard and cousin of 12-year NFL wide receiver Ike Hilliard, the Patterson native began to live up to the family name when called upon Saturday against No. 20 Auburn. In the absence of sophomore running back Spencer Ware to suspension, Hilliard carried the ball 10 times for 65 yards, second only to sophomore running back Michael Ford, who rushed 12 times for 82 yards. The 5-foot-11-inch, 240pound tailback also rumbled his way for the first two touchdowns of his LSU career and the Tigers’ first score of the day en route to the 45-10 win — the largest victory in the schools’ 46-game rivalry. “Kenny is huge,” laughed senior offensive lineman T-Bob Hebert. “To imagine him playing high school football last year is pretty insane. The way he ran the ball [Saturday], they really just couldn’t bring him down. I was really excited for him getting in there twice as a freshman. That’s incredible.” Hilliard set the Louisiana high school rushing record with 8,603 yards during his prep career, adding 106 touchdowns to his efforts. After earning a four-star tag and being pegged as one of the nation’s top 10 rushers, Hilliard saw action mostly as a fullback in HILLIARD, see page 15

LSU Chancellor Michael Martin will make a presentation about the future of Division I athletics today during a Knight Commission meeting with NCAA President Mark Emmert in Washington, D.C. Martin will speak as part of a group of University leaders including Boise State President Robert Kustra and University of North Carolina System President Thomas Ross. The trio will discuss their views on major challenges facing college sports and the NCAA’s current efforts to address key policy areas with a focus on finances. The most relevant discussion topics will include the financial impact of conference realignment and paying collegiate athletes. The Knight Commission was formed in 1989 as an effort to address the number of scandals in college sports. The commission has published three major reports containing recommendations to the NCAA about policy actions. The most recent report, titled “Restoring the Balance: Dollars, Values and the Future of College Sports,” was released in June 2010. Emmert will also provide a summary of key policy issues today and give a reaction to the Knight Commission’s most recent recommendations. Researchers from the Delta Project on Postsecondary Education Costs will also present an update on financial trends in University spending. BRIANNA PACIORKA / The Daily Reveille

VOLLEYBALL

Lady Tigers beat Crimson Tide, fall in five-set match to Ole Miss LSU led two sets to one against Rebels Albert Burford Sports Contributor

After winning three straight matches, the LSU volleyball team lost the fourth match of its home stand against Ole Miss in five sets.

The Tigers were leading two sets to one entering what turned out to be a grueling 64-point fourth set, which ended in favor of the Rebels, 33-31. “It was fun to coach and I would think it was fun to play,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. “You train for those kind of opportunities. A lot of people were making great plays, but unfortunately they made more than us.” Early in the fourth set,

freshman setter Malorie Pardo suffered a knock to the head while diving for a ball at the edge of the court. Pardo, the Southeastern Conference leader in assists, was replaced by sophomore setter Shelby Pursley. The fourth set saw 19 ties and three lead changes. “Those are the funnest parts VOLLEYBALL, see page 15

Be a true Tiger fan, support the team — don’t leave early BODY SHOTS Rob Landry Sports columnist Don’t be lame, stay all game. LSU won its third consecutive game by more than 30 points Saturday, but a good chunk of the fans in attendance heard that news from outside the stadium. With 7:27 to go in the third quarter, senior cornerback Ron Brooks – starting because of the suspensions of sophomore defensive backs Tharold Simon and Tyrann Mathieu – took an interception 28 yards for a touchdown. The score capped a 21-point quarter for the Tigers. There were also three jaw-rattling hits on kickoffs, the biggest of which came from freshman wide receiver Jarvis Landry. But the real sight on these plays were all the visible bleacher seats that had been vacated by fans making an early departure. By the time the clock reached 0:00 in LSU’s 45-10 victory against Auburn, a hefty percentage of the Tiger faithful had already exited the building. Why? Was your tailgate food going to spoil by staying in your seat for the final quarter? Was there a oncein-a-lifetime drink special at Serranos that ended with the game’s final whistle? Or did you give the overused and never effective excuse that you wanted to beat the traffic? This is arguably the best football team LSU has ever put on the field, and the people who claim to be its most loyal and die-hard supporters bail before the game even ends. Now, before I delve too far into this rant, this is not an indictment of just the student section. This epidemic has spread to the entire LSU fan base. For those fans that remember going to games during the Mike Archer, Curley Hallman and Gerry DiNardo eras, the past dozen or so years of LSU football should be cherished for all the joy it has brought. Two national titles, three Southeastern Conference championships and four wins in Bowl Championship Series bowl games since 2001 should have made

people realize this is something special.  Instead, it has created a spoiled, entitled fan base that can’t even manage to stay in the stadium for four hours six times a year. This mindset of treating games as just another social outing is mind boggling. Why go to something if you have no intention of staying until it’s over? People don’t go to a movie, say it’s amazing, then leave with 20 minutes left to say they’ll catch the end when it comes out on DVD.  And no one goes to dinner at his or her favorite restaurant to leave before the entrée arrives. Some people claim to get bored at blowouts. These are the folks that should surrender their tickets to the thousands of people left outside the stadium unable to get a pass into the game. There is no shame in admitting that football isn’t the most exciting thing in the world to you. Different strokes for different folks. But if that’s the case, just watch the entire game at the tailgate or the bar and let someone who really wants to soak in all that going to a game in person has to offer go. Watching a rout is the most enjoyable thing in the world because you get to celebrate a victory and see the young talent get some snaps in mop-up duty. And the underclassmen will decide if the program can sustain the current success it is enjoying. Most of all, it’s about supporting the guys on the field. Those guys spend countless hours and give their all year-round for the team. The least you can do is support them until the end of a game. Next time the Tigers play a game in Death Valley, stay and watch the team huddle up by the student section and sing the alma mater with them. It’s what a real fan would do.   Rob Landry is a 23-year-old mass communication senior from Mandeville. Follow him on Twitter @RobLandry85.

Divers place high, swimmers falter against Auburn Scott Branson

Sports Contributor

The LSU men’s swimming and diving squads remain winless this season after a 218-82 loss to Auburn on Friday in the LSU Natatorium. Auburn (1-0), winners of 15 consecutive Southeastern Conference Championships, swept LSU (0-3, 0-2 SEC) in all of the swimming events. Swimming coach Dave Geyer said he was pleased with some individual performances against Auburn, but overall the swimmers didn’t step up as a team when they needed to. “We had some great individual performances, but from the total team effort we struggled pretty big today and we’re going to address that,” Geyer said. “It

was just a lack of want today from our team.” Geyer said he hoped his squad would show more intensity in its first home dual meet, especially considering the opponent. “When we recruit these kids, we tell them that when you come to LSU, we give you an opportunity to race against the best in the country,” Geyer said. “We had that opportunity today and many of our athletes didn’t shoot to do that.” Geyer noted good performances by junior Nick Kunkel in the backstroke events and sophomore Ricardo Alvarado Jiminez in the breaststroke. Kunkel placed second in the 100- and 200-yard backstroke events, swimming to season-best times in both events. Alvarado Jiminez finished

LSU sophomore Walter Loop competes in the 200M breast stroke Friday afternoon against Auburn. The men’s swimming and diving squads lost, 218-82, and remain winless

second in the 100- and 200-yard backstroke events. “For the week that we had in and coming off of travel last week, for [Alvarado Jiminez] to come in and continue to drop times, that’s great,” Geyer said. “That’s what we’re looking for

and that shouldn’t be the exception, that should be the standard for our team right now.” LSU diving coach Doug Shaffer said he was pleased with the performances. Including a first place, career-high 371.48 point finish in the three-meter platform

dive for senior Matt Vieke. “Matt was very consistent on both boards,” Shaffer said. “Of the 12 dives that he did, I really don’t think that he had any one that was something that would have cost him the event. That’s what we want to start to see is some of the consistency on that.” Vieke’s 330.45-point performance on the one-meter dive earned him second place, missing first place by a slim 1.65 point margin. The Tigers and Lady Tigers will next compete against Alabama on Nov. 4 at home in the LSU Natatorium.

TENNIS

Borsos, Wolf dominant forces in ITA Southern Regionals Adrian Wintz Sports Contributor

The LSU men’s and women’s tennis teams enjoyed day-one tournament success at the ITA Southern Regionals in Alabama and saw a few of their players go deep into their respective tournaments last weekend. For the men’s team, nine of the 10 Tigers who competed won their opening matches. Junior Olivier Borsos and his doubles partner, freshman Chris Simpson, will compete in the doubles finals today against Ole Miss’ Jonas Lutjen and

Johan Backstrom. Borsos excelled in singles during the weekend but fell in the semifinal match Sunday to Lutjen, 6-3, 6-4. He didn���t lose a set until his semifinal match with Lutjen. “[Borsos] let his athleticism really come through, and his competitiveness,” said men’s coach Jeff Brown. “He kept his composure ... and let his racquet do the talking.” On that path to the semifinals, Borsos had to go through Simpson in the third round Friday, a match that Borsos won, 6-2, 6-2. “[Playing a teammate] is

never comfortable leading into it,” Brown said. “They handled it fine, but ... it was a little bit different of a mindset.” Senior Mark Bowtell worked his way through to the quarterfinals, where he lost Saturday, 6-2, 6-3, to Lutjen. Seniors Tom Knights and David Roberts both lost in the second round of the singles main draw, but went far in the consolation bracket. Knights won three consecutive consolation matches before losing Sunday, and Roberts won two straight consolation

matches before losing in his last match Saturday. “I thought it was great that they got to play so many matches,” Brown said. “That was a big bonus, for them to play so much, that’ll give them a chance for them to get some confidence, and that’s really what it’s all about.” The Lady Tigers had only one player make it through to Sunday’s tournament play, despite six first-round singles wins from the seven LSU players competing. Senior Whitney Wolf won her first three matches of the

tournament, including two 6-0 victories in the first round. In both her second-round and third-round matches, the Pride, La., native lost a set, but battled back to win each match. Wolf and doubles partner senior Olivia Howlett also earned two doubles wins on the weekend before losing in the third round of the main draw.

Tigers capture SEC West title with clutch road win Gators’ loss first in program history Chris Abshire Sports Writer

The LSU soccer team clinched its third Southeastern Conference Western Division title in four seasons in a historic fashion Sunday. In front of a rowdy Gator home crowd and a national television audience, the Tigers defeated powerhouse No. 13 Florida, 1-0, for the first time in school history. “Winning the SEC West is where our goals always start,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. “We’ve been in this spot before and not come through. To win an important match against a great team late in the season is crucial for our NCAA [Tournament] potential.” LSU (12-6-1, 7-3 SEC) entered the match with a 0-12-2 all-time mark against Florida, which has won a national championship and 11 of 18 SEC regular-season championships, including the last five. Senior Taryne Boudreau propelled the Tigers again, continuing an All-American caliber campaign with her 11th goal of the season in the 33rd minute. Boudreau won the ball from a

Gator defender near midfield with a sliding tackle, worked a quick passing combination with senior midfielder Natalie Martineau and lofted an arching 30-yard shot past poorly positioned Florida goalkeeper Brooke Chancey. Lee said Boudreau’s ability to bury goals in the clutch continues to be the most notable aspect of her scoring prowess. “She’s having a special season,” Lee said of the Alberta, Canada native’s 27-point senior campaign. “Most impressive to me is how she’s getting these goals. We’re not winning 3-nil and padding the stats. She’s lifting our offense when we need goals in big spots.” The long-range goal was Boudreau’s fifth of the season outside the penalty box and her sixth gamewinner this fall. The Gators (14-5, 7-3 SEC) responded to the slim deficit in the final 55 minutes, putting a stifling LSU defense on its heels with persistently aggressive runs into the box and quick passing. Florida outshot LSU, 13-5, earned eight corner kicks to LSU’s one and drew nine fouls from a weary Tiger defense. Despite the Gator pressure, a motivated LSU back line never faltered, deftly deflecting Florida shots and leaving open sight lanes for

senior goalkeeper Mo Isom to save the only three Gator shots on goal. Lee said the Tiger defense was keen on fixing some tactical mistakes that led to a season-high four goals allowed against South Carolina in a deflating 4-1 Gamecock rout Thursday night. “It sounds crazy when you hear four goals, but they were mostly self-inflicted mistakes,” Lee said. “I think that kind of resharpened

our focus because we knew we had to clean up that sloppiness with the postseason coming up.” While Lee said the first LSU victory against Florida was more important to his five seniors than the coaching staff, he acknowledged the win has a chance to become one of the most memorable in his sevenyear tenure. “This win becomes huge if we win on Friday night in Arkansas and

get some help with South Carolina. That will turn in to the biggest regular season win I’ve coached,” Lee said. LSU needs Florida to upend South Carolina on Friday to have any chance of capturing the school’s first SEC overall title. Contact Chris Abshire at cabshire@lsureveille.com

Brees nearly flawless against Colts Saints set records in 62-7 shutdown The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Fans sitting in the upper deck turned their backs to the field, where the New Orleans Saints were setting franchise records, and saluted head coach Sean Payton, who was sitting high above in a booth with his broken leg propped up. He might as well have had both feet up by the middle of the third quarter. Drew Brees completed 31 of 35 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns, and the Saints set a franchise record for points and victory margin in a 62-7 demolition of the hapless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night. “I was real proud of how we played tonight, how we handled the week of practice,” said Payton, standing on crutches after the game. “We spent a lot of time during the week just talking about us beginning to play our best football, because we really felt while we were 4-2, we hadn’t done that.” Payton had called offensive plays from the sidelines since he took his first head coaching job with New Orleans in 2006, but that changed after he was caught up in a tackle along the sideline at Tampa Bay last week and was injured. Sitting high up in the Superdome for the game against the Colts, he had to like what he saw down below, where offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. called plays for the first time. Brees had two touchdown passes to Marques Colston and one to Darren Sproles in the first quarter. His fourth and fifth touchdown tosses went to second-year tight end Jimmy Graham in the third quarter. It seemed the Saints could do whatever they wanted, also rushing for 236 yards. “We had a great game plan. We played with a lot of confidence. Pete did a phenomenal job,” Brees said. “It was just our night, one of those games that doesn’t come along too often. ... We needed a win like this, especially after the past week and everything we’ve gone through.” The Saints scored, by far, the most points of any team this season, easily eclipsing Green Bay’s 49-23 victory over Denver on Oct. 2. When the large video board in the Superdome showed Payton peering out from the booth, the crowd erupted. By the time the third quarter ended, there wasn’t much of a crowd left. Colston had seven catches for 98 yards. Brees wasn’t intercepted before he was replaced by Chase Daniel late in the third quarter, a move that prevented New Orleans’ starting quarterback from extending his NFL record of four straight games with at least 350 yards passing. Mark Ingram rushed for 91

yards on 18 carries but limped to the locker room early in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury. Sproles carried 12 times for 88 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown. The Saints had 557 yards and a team-record 36 first downs. Colts quarterback Curtis Painter was only 9 of 17 for 67 yards and had an interception returned 42 yards for a touchdown by Leigh Torrence. For the seventh game this season, Colts star quarterback Peyton Manning was forced to watch because of a neck injury that has sidelined him all season. As hard as it had to be for Manning to be a spectator in his return to his native New Orleans, it had to be even harder to see his team’s mistake-prone performance. These Colts looked more like the bumbling Saints of old that his father, Archie, starred for three decades ago. Indianapolis fumbled twice in the opening quarter, giving the Saints a relatively short field both times. The first came on the opening drive on a botched snap that linebacker Jonathan Vilma recovered on the Colts 41-yard line. Brees then completed his first three passes, the last a 14-yard scoring strike to Colston, who made a leaping catch in front of defensive back Jerraud Powers to make it 7-0. The Saints then went 81 yards in six plays, including Pierre Thomas’s 57-yard gain on a screen pass, and took a 14-0 lead when Brees hit Colston again with a quick 4-yard throw over the middle. The Saints then took over on their 48 when defensive tackle Tom Johnson stripped rookie running back Delone Carter, and Cam Jordan recovered. Sproles started the drive with a 16-yard run and finished it with a 6-yard touchdown catch. Brees’ 26-yard completion to Lance Moore ignited yet another touchdown drive, this one covering 69 yards in seven plays and ending

with fullback Jed Collins’ 1-yard score on a second-effort plunge through a pile of players. John Kasay added field goals of 23 and 47 yards. The second came as time expired in the half and was set up by Colston’s 39yard reception. Indianapolis trailed 31-0 before scoring on Carter’s 2-yard run, capping a seven-play, 80-yard drive that was highlighted by Carter’s 42-yard scamper on the opening play.

No. 3 Lady Tigers stumble in SEC/Pac-12 Challenge

Luke Johnson

Sports Contributor

The No. 3 LSU women’s golf team entered the weekend with hopes for a high finish against a stacked field at the Mercedes-Benz SEC/Pac-12 Challenge, but left with a bad taste in its mouth after placing 15th out of 23 teams with a 36-over par cumulative score. The field included 15 top25 teams and four top-5 teams, according to the Sagarin/Golfweek rankings. Senior Jacqueline Hedwall led the scoring efforts for LSU with a 6-over par 222 total for the

three-day tournament. Hedwall’s play didn’t rank highly on the overall leader board as she finished in a tie for 34th place. It was the first time a Lady Tiger golfer finished outside the top 20 of the individual leader board since the Liz Murphey Classic in April, when Austin Ernst finished in a tie for 25th. The Lady Tigers faced an uphill struggle after the first round. LSU finished the first day in 19th place, as four of the five Lady Tigers participating in the tournament struggled to scores of 76 or higher.

LSU pendant returned after 54 years missing The Associated Press JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — Gerry Reynolds figured his football letterman’s pendant earned playing football at Louisiana State University in 1947 and 1948 had been lost forever. It came as quite a surprise when Bob Crawley gave it back to him 54 years after he last saw it. Reynolds, who lives in Memphis, told The Jackson Sun he lost the L-shaped pendant in the woods of Decatur County in 1957 while giving a speech at a tree farm dedication. Reynolds gave it to his thengirlfriend, Miner Fugler, whom he met in high school in Baton Rouge and began dating at LSU. She wore the pendant on a necklace, even after they married in 1960. Reynolds, 84, borrowed the pendant to wear at the speech, but didn’t realize it had been lost until he was on his way home. “I lost it in those woods, no doubt about it,” he said. “I figured it was a lost cause to try and find it because of the wooded area I was in. I tried to replace it, but got nowhere with that.” Miner Reynolds would

periodically remind her husband about the pendant, which for years had been tucked in Crawley’s jewelry box as he traveled around the globe in the Air Force and as an air traffic controller before moving to Jackson in 1990. Crawley said he found the award while visiting home in Decaturville in 1957. Anytime he saw the jewelry box, Crawley would think about trying to get in touch with the man whose name was on the L. “But then it would slip my mind, and I would forget about it,” said Crawley, who is 78. Crawley contacted LSU in 2009 It took two years, but the school tracked Reynolds down in 2011. Reynolds, his wife Miner, and Crawley and his wife met Sept. 24 in Jackson. “I couldn’t believe it, not after that long a time and the fact of where I lost it,” Reynolds said. “It’s kind of an unbelievable thing, really.”

ULL a no-show at Friday rugby game Alex Cassara

LSU fans rabid for rugby action will have to wait. The LSU Rugby Club’s first home game at the Sports and Adventure Complex fields Sunday was cancelled after LouisianaLafayette forfeited due to “lack of participation.” This past weekend was ULL’s fall break, and ULL coach Boyd LeJeune decided to forfeit Friday after he realized how many of his players would be out of town

visiting their families. LeJeune found the team underprepared, as the team only had one practice all week, which 10 players attended. LSU will now host its first game on the SAC fields Nov. 5 against Florida State. The club’s A side dropped its last game to Texas State, 23-10, while the B side won, 13-10.

Ernst struggled the most on the opening day of the tournament. The defending NCAA champion tallied three double bogeys and four bogeys on her first nine holes of the first day, en route to a 10over 82 score. It wasn’t all bad for Ernst who rebounded to post consecutive rounds of 2-over 74 to close out the tournament. Southeastern Conference rival Alabama won the tournament with a final team score of 1-over 865. UCLA, who won the inaugural SEC/Pac-12 Championship last season, finished four shots behind Alabama in second place.

The tournament marked the end of the fall portion of the Lady Tigers’ schedule. LSU won’t hit the links again until Feb. 12, for the Lady Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. While the women were finishing up, the men were just getting their tournament started at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Windermere, Fla. The Tigers finished the first round tied with Oklahoma State, Florida and Augusta State for sixth place with a 7-over 295, and received a solid if unspectacular day from every player on the team. Freshman Curtis Thompson

and sophomore Andrew Presley each led LSU with a 1-over 73 on the day. They were followed by senior Sang Yi at 2-over 74, and sophomore Landon Lyons who rounded out the scoring with a 3-over 75. LSU is currently four shots behind third-place Alabama, but face a steep uphill climb trying to catch first place Texas, who is 10-under par after the first day.

Monday, October 24, 2011 four of the Tigers’ first six games, accumulating seven yards on four carries. The former Patterson High star also broke a 13-yard run last week at Tennessee, which LSU coach Les Miles said was the moment he knew Hilliard was ready. Miles added that he wasn’t surprised with Hilliard’s breakthrough performance Saturday. “I was expecting it,” Miles said. “Especially after he showed what he was capable of at Tennessee. We’ve seen how he’s running and once he had that nice run in the Tennessee game, we said, ‘OK, we’re kind of ready to go with this.’” Ware has been the Tigers’ go-to back this season, leading the team with 128 carries, 512 yards and six touchdowns. With Ware out, the bulk of the load went to Hilliard, Ford, freshman running back Terrence Magee and sophomore running back Alfred Blue. The foursome combined for 178 yards, but Hilliard was the only back to reach pay dirt. “Kenny ran very hard for a freshman coming out there in a big game like that,” Ford said. “[It’s] definitely not surprising. When we go to practice, practice is like a game. We go out there with that mentality and Kenny does a great job at practice.” Miles described Hilliard as “another strong, big tailback” and said after seeing rushing contributions from fellow freshmen Odell Beckham Jr., Jakhari Gore and Magee, he was ready to see more of his young talent shine. “It’s just about time for another young runner to emerge and grow,” Miles said. “There’s no way to judge how often or how fast somebody is going to come, it just comes at different times.

While the Tigers’ feature runner may change from week to week, senior quarterback Jarrett Lee expressed his confidence in whoever lines up behind him. “We’ve got a special group of guys there and coaches do a great job for them,” Lee said. “When their opportunity comes, they’ve got to make the most of it and they did just that. Kenny has played some fullback for us this year so we know he’s going to work hard ... and stick his facemask in there for us.” Senior wide receiver Rueben Randle, who reeled in 106 yards and two scores for himself, said despite Hilliard’s young, eightgame LSU career, he sees a bright future for the maturing standout. “He’s powerful and hard to tackle,” Randle said. “If Coach Miles gives him more and more opportunities, I think he’ll be a great back for us.”

As usual, our website, lsureveille. com, has been absolutely buzzing with reader comments. Check it out today, and let your voice be heard. In reference to the article, “Source: Mathieu, Ware, Simon suspended for Auburn game,” readers had this to say:

report them to LSU so they can be terminated and prosecuted as they deserve to be. These poor kids have rights that have been violated by criminals who do not deserve to be associated with LSU. Keep your eyes and ears open and step and report them idiots so they can be dealt with!’ -Anonymous

“Wow. Speculation and innuendo apparently is fodder for idiots. The tragedy here is that The reveille, ESPN, CBS etc. would report information as if it were fact when nothing has been validated. Whoever ‘leaked this story and the idiots who have published it should be sued by the young men. Whoever leaked the information... whoever the sources are will mess up and brag. LSU Nation, lets rally together and find the rat(s) and

“LSU is a team made up of many outstanding athletes/players. We lost our starting quarterback, we had a great player step up to lead out team, and now we are ranked No. 1 in the nation. If we lose Mathieu and Ware, guess what, we have a magnitude of great players waiting for a chance to step up and help lead our team to a national championship. Coach Miles will regroup and our fighting tigers will come out and show

everyone what they are - competitors who never give up, and WE ARE IN IT TO WIN IT!! GEAUX TIGERS!!!” -Anonymous

“To the anonymous LSU Alum that does not support LSU, Why are you upset (‘this sucks’). C’mon man. To Bama/Auburn fans: Auburn fans- when it was Cam Newton’s father trying to get money from the best offer you sure didn’t have much to say. At least LSU have standard and if these players can’t follow the rules then there should be penalties. Right? Alabama fans- now I see why you want to beat Auburn so bad ever year, good luck Nov 5th. It should be a pretty good game.” -Anonymous “I am a huge big Bama fan

stuck in the middle of Louisiana. I wish these college athletes wouldn’t make poor decisions like this. As someone else said earlier, these are truly selfish decisions made by these young men that is affecting all of their team-mates. Hopefully, these guys can take these decisions and learn from them. If they desire to be professional athletes, they can still achieve this goal. I just hate that this will be hanging over lsu for the rest of the season. LSU is still loaded with good athletes, it isn’t the end for them, they still have a very good ball club. I hope the team can pull it together and still play like I know they can. I say all of that, but I still say Roll Tide.” -Anonymous

But before you go ‘laughing to the bank’ lsu will be more than ready for auburn as well as alabama. Who’s the #1 team in the land? Lsu! Somewhere alabama isn’t.... They have the best head coach in the nation (les miles).....So you can bet that he has a surprise or two for both teams. It seems lsu comes back from something like this stronger. About all i can say to end this, is let the games be played as they should be and the better team will win on october 22nd and november 5th. That undeniably will be lsu! Geaux tigers!” -feefeelsu

“You bama and auburn fans just love when lsu has mishaps.

THE G-SPOT

Websites for hook-ups are lamer than those for dating

Is there such a thing as lust at first click? Online dating is one thing, but a website devoted exclusively to hooking up is simply pathetic. Websites like CampusHook. com offer users a place to display their pictures, in- Gabie Bacques terests, intentions Columnist and other useless information in order to find suitors for uncommitted intimacy. If you’re just looking for a night of casual sex, why do any of the other elements matter? Come on, how desperate can you get? I’m not condemning using social networking to meet people. I get that some people need a little help putting themselves out there. Dating involves getting to know someone on a personal level, rather than strictly physical. People who use these websites can be socially awkward, anxious or just don’t know where to go to meet new people. Do what you have to do, but have some dignity. Joining a website to find a one night stand seems contradictory, not to mention entirely unnecessary. If you have trouble talking to people in order to seal the deal without the Internet, what makes you think a meeting with an online partner is going to be a success? If you don’t know where to find someone willing to get it on

for an evening, hit up Tigerland on a Thursday night. They will be effortless to spot, and it’s probably easier than making a CampusHook profile. The issue I have with this form of socialization is that it’s made for people strictly looking to hook up — not gain a relationship. If we have seriously resorted to using social networking sites to meet someone to get with for one night, your social skills need work, to be honest. Are we that disconnected from personal interaction? According to their website, there are more than 800 million active Facebook users. This is without a doubt the most popular social networking website, granted, but it says a lot about our culture today. With growing Internet usage, online dating continues to rise in popularity, which I don’t necessarily see as a problem. However, having physical contact with someone to maintain relationships is in our nature. Human beings are social creatures, and to deny that is naive. The very principle behind these websites we religiously visit proves that. So why do we insist on constructing these synthetic relationships through a computer screen instead of having the physical interaction we need? This is more applicable to these casual hook-up sites than anything else. Their purpose is to achieve a bodily meeting to exchange sexual deeds, yet they emerge from the least physical medium possible. It

just doesn’t make sense. If you’re going to go through the trouble to make a profile, visit the site regularly, find potential partners, contact them, wait for a response, build a small connection and then finally arrange a rendezvous, you might as well have found someone in real life. Personally, I’d be a little embarrassed to be on this public domain. CampusHook.com lists

directories for each college, LSU included, and anyone can view the list. Your timid classmate may be looking for a ménage à trois, but you’ll never know without superficial contact via the Internet. On second thought, perhaps asking in person after viewing his or her profile will prove you’re better than the rest. Your best bet either way, if

you so choose casual hooking up, is to initiate it in the flesh. Gabie Bacques is a 21-year-old animal science senior from Mandeville. Follow her on Twitter @TDR_Gbacques.

HEAD to HEAD Is vigilante justice acceptable outside of comic books? Yes. Vigilantes are real-life superheroes when the justice system is inadequate.

Seattle’s self-styled superhero Phoenix Jones is now fighting not only crime, but an assault charge. Jones, 23, unmasked by police as Benjamin John Francis Fodor, was recently arrested for allegedly assaulting four people with pepper spray outside a nightclub. Whereas Jones insisted they were fighting, Officer Hosea Crumpton’s incident report maintained the victims were “dancing and frolicking.” Jones captains the Rain City Superhero Movement (RCSM), a ten-member citizen crime-prevention patrol group — real-life superheroes, as it were, engaging in “cosplay,” a portmanteau of the words “costume” and “play.” Granted, this isn’t quite the stuff of the 2009 Zack Snyder-directed film “Watchmen” — Jones isn’t Dr. Manhattan, by all accounts. But the RCSM isn’t exactly akin to 1999’s “Mystery Men,” which featured Ben Stiller as “Mr. Furious” and Kel Mitchell of “Kenan & Kel” fame as the “Invisible (When No One Else Is Looking) Boy.” Jones’s equipment includes the Dragon Skin bulletproof vest, stab plating, tear gas and a stun baton. In that case, 2010 film “Kick-Ass” is probably the closest comparison, because that’s bad ass. At any rate, there’s only one thing Jones is guilty of in my (comic) book, and that’s having a terrible superhero name. He’s not guilty of assault, in any event. I’m no fanboy, but the police report seems woefully suspicious to me. Who “frolicks,” honestly? Never mind the “Dougie” — teach me those dance moves. As it pertains to Jones and the RCSM, we ought to teach the Seattle Police Department the Joker — “Why so serious?” A vigilante, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary, is a private individual who legally or illegally metes out punishment to an alleged lawbreaker. The term is Spanish for “watchman” or “guard,” but vigilantism has existed long before the word was first introduced to the English language. Dueling, for instance, was a popular aristocratic form of private retribution before the advent of the centralized modern nation-state. Most often, however, vigilante justice is sought for the perception that judicial criminal punishment is insufficient or nonexistent. In this manner, vigilantism is but an extension of an otherwise ineffective justice system. Sometimes, like Batman, the vigilante is personally motivated. Sometimes, like Robin Hood, he’s philanthropically motivated. And sometimes, like Dexter, he’s just a serial killer who’s found a constructive outlet for his bloodthirstiness. To each his own, as they say — which is precisely the point. Nevertheless, it’s arguable that vigilantism risks false accusation and the like, subverting such key justice system provisions as the “presumption of innocence” paradigm, that one is innocent until proven

guilty. For example, businessman Leo Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, having allegedly murdered one of his employees. Frank was officially pardoned in 1986. In 2009, Michael Zenquis was severely assaulted in Philadelphia by vigilantes, having mistook him for an at-large rapist. More recentPHIL SWEENEY ly, Georgia inmate Columnist Troy Davis was executed for the 1989 slaying of off-duty Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail, a murder no one’s certain he committed. Wait, I’m sorry. Davis was executed by the state of Georgia. Accordingly, justice was served, of course. It goes to show that the governmental monopoly of justice doesn’t prevent its miscarriage, either. No, in the absence of the adequate administration of justice, vigilantism isn’t just legitimate. It’s admirable. My 11-year-old brother and his friends recently took the law into their own hands after their school’s administration failed to bring a school bully to justice. I stand for that principle, even if their principal doesn’t. Like Jones, they’re vigilantes. They’re real-life superheroes. Phil Sweeney is a 25-year-old English senior from New Orleans.

No. Vigilantes can cause physical harm to themselves and others.

Let’s face it: It’s not hard to see why some people love superheroes. Whether it’s Batman, the X-Men or any other of the myriad of heroes created throughout the years, there’s a reason they’ve become so popular. Most of the time, these are men and women who have seen injustice in their community and want to do all they can to fix it. To accomplish that, ZACHARY DAVIS they often have to go outColumnist side of the legal system and take the law into their own hands. Some people see these costumed crime fighters as role models and have wanted to emulate their actions in their own lives, while others, having seen someone close to them be affected by crime and finding the legal system ineffective, simply cannot let those responsible get away free. Hell, there’s no way I can say I wouldn’t feel the same way in a similar situation. The legal system takes time, and for some it just doesn’t do enough. Vigilante justice is just too attractive sometimes. Unfortunately, there’s a very valid reason this kind of thing is illegal. Of course, this hasn’t stopped everyone. There are people around the country like Phoenix Jones, the costumed crime fighter arrested in Seattle earlier this month. After his son was harmed in a crime two years ago, Jones began patrolling his city’s streets and fighting crime. Although he says he has been successful in stopping assaults, drug deals and the like, it has not come without injury in the process. He’s been shot, stabbed and had his nose broken, yet he argues it’s better

for someone wearing body armor to take this abuse. While this may be a valid point, it’s also something he needs to heed himself. Given his job — working with autistic kids — it’s fairly likely he does not have basic police training. Additionally, while he may have better protection than a normal citizen, he does not have the equipment and assets police. Yet, beyond a lack of preparedness, there are two more reasons vigilantism simply shouldn’t exist beyond comics. The one comparison which quickly comes to mind concerning costumed crime fighters is the tradition of blood feuds, which still exists in some places around the world like France, Italy, Turkey, Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s a cycle of retaliatory killings or attacks between two groups of people, often families. When we take the law out of the equation and make it personal by trying to take it into our own hands, it’s not very different. It’s a reason these vigilante crime fighters usually have to protect their identity. As Jones fears, if criminals were to find out his real name, his family could be put into harm’s way. One must also remember the reason why Phoenix Jones was arrested, as it’s probably the most important point against vigilantism. After coming across what appeared to be a man in the process of being beaten, Jones charged in and sprayed Mace in the faces of some of the supposed assailants. However, the group stated there was no fight going on and they were assaulted by Jones. While videos from the night don’t show definitively one way or another, it’s this uncertainty which is a problem. Sometimes even the cops will accidentally arrest someone who is innocent. If the police can make mistakes at times, it’s inevitable a vigilante will do the same. Instead of fixing the problem, these crime fighters could simply be adding to it by falsely attacking someone, as Jones may have done. There’s a reason these actions are illegal. While it may be something we may all wish we could do, there are far too many ways for things to be made much worse. Although our legal system isn’t flawless, we simply can’t ignore the law and take action into our own hands. The last thing we need is everyone trying to force their own views of the law onto society. Zachary Davis is a 20-year-old history junior from Warsaw, Poland. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_zdavis.
