Private Property [Update]

A flyer found on a Commentator distribution rack

I found this flyer on our distribution rack downstairs in the EMU. In addition, our “take one” sign had been yanked off or flipped or something. The flyer is advertising some “love-in” for the anti-Pacifica movement.

Attention “activists”. Be advised that the Oregon Commentator distribution racks are private property, and as such citizens are subject to all laws regarding the vandalism of said property. In addition to this, the Oregon Commentator itself is public property and again, is subject to all laws regarding vandalism, theft or obstruction of its distribution.

Have a nice day.

[Update] Our Art Director, Josh, just called me and said he noticed this flyer inside one of our black outdoor distribution boxes as well. Not only is it vandalism, but it is supression of a student’s hard work in student programming, “I worked really hard on that cover–about 4 hours–and they put their Xeroxed flyer on top of it? That’s pretty shitty,” he said.

For Christ’s sake anti-Pacifica people, think about someone other than yourselves.

    This is almost as fucked up as that Nike class war crap that used to get plastered all over campus. Tell the anti-nazi nazis that the only official unofficial spot to post this crap is all over the Eugene Weekly boxes.

    Well, it’s not vandalism unless it causes actual defacement or damage.

    (This is what you learn when you do enough pranks in high school.)

    Also, if the “A” stands for alliance…where do Asexuals fit?

    “It’s only a matter of time until someone gets hurt.”

    Cam, you should take a chill pill (whatever variety you prefer) and stop projecting your obvious anger for what happened to the LGBTQA onto the OC. Vandalism is vandalism. Your argument basically amounts to the comparison of any crime that falls under one title but manifests itself in different ways. You know, like getting systematically cut into pieces (murder) vs. getting shot in the head (murder) vs. getting poisoned (murder). While the degree of murder is different, you’re still dead.

    How do you like that hyperbole?

    You’ve got to be shitting me. LGBTQA gets broken into, has a 4 by 4 Swastika spraypainted on they’re floor, has they’re tvs and computers ruined and the Commentator has the nerve to bitch about a FLYER and call it VANDALISM!?!?! You guys are off you’re rocker!

    Move as one body…sounds like some weird hippie shit.
