Images of kids getting ready to party upon the news of suspended classroom activities, leave many parents wondering if there is truly a benefit to shutting down classes only days before spring break?

The University of Dayton announced they would suspending classes and housing would be closing by 6 pm on the same day.

At around midnight, a massive group of students gathered together on Lowes Street, the center of where most off-campus housing is located for what appeared to be a massive party. The University of Dayton put out a public statement explaining the situation and how Dayton Police were called in to disperse the crowd:

“A large disorderly crowd that grew to more than 1,000 people gathered on Lowes Street starting around 11 p.m., throwing objects and bottles in the street and at police, and jumping on cars. Police gave verbal orders to disperse which were ignored. Police initially launched pepper balls, which contain powder with an irritant that disperses quickly, that were unsuccessful in reducing the crowd size. About 2:15 a.m., UD police and additional Dayton police again gave orders to disperse and moved to clear the street, which was effective in dispersing the crowd quickly. At least one person was reportedly injured by a thrown bottle.”

Flyer News shared multiple videos of the massive group of students who gathered on Lowes Street.

One student bragged about how “tear gas” allegedly used by law enforcement to break up the crowd, “can’t stop us.”

One student reported that students were seen vomiting from the tear gas allegedly being shot at students.

After reports of “tear gas” being used on students to disperse the crowds were being widely circulated on social media, University officials announced that pepper balls that “contain powder with an irritant that disperses quickly,” was used by law enforcement.

 

The video below shows what appears to be police moving down the street.

Police remained stationed in front of houses to keep kids from congregating again.

This person’s tweet explains how they feel sorry for law enforcement officers who’ve all been potentially exposed to coronavirus after they were forced to deal with “a bunch of ‘educated’ hoodlums.”

Is there anything more comforting than knowing these kids represent the future of our country?
