Good morning,

Reddit users are dishing out their opinions on OUPD and OU’s administration following the detainment of about 70 protesters in Baker Center last week.

The comments, which are part of a thread centered on a Post report, almost exclusively rail against the way OU handled the situation.

“This is a disgrace, shutting down what was a peaceful protest” wrote user @ajacbos. “Shame on this university's administration for stifling the opinions of the students, who pay outrageously high tuition and fees that allow those in charge to live so lavishly.”

That sentiment is a far cry from comments on other coverage of the protests.

“Let's all remember that Ohio University/Athens, OH is one of the Top 10 party schools in the country,” user @righttrack wrote on Columbus-based NBC4i’s website. “... I take no stock in what these drunken fools have to say. Drunken stupid kids - and the numerous arrests prove that.”
