How ya gonna keep 'em down on the Yard? Police plan show of force to stop Harvard frosh drinking next week

The Crimson reports Harvard, Cambridge and State Police will be patrolling the areas around Harvard upperclass residences next Wednesday to keep freshmen from getting bombed as part of the annual celebration of housing assignments:

Dingman cited safety as a primary motivation for the increased security, recalling dangerous acts performed by intoxicated students in recent years. He further criticized the role River Run plays in perpetuating a negative stereotype of the Quad Houses.

The Crimson quotes one freshman as basically saying ain't no coppers gonna stop the fun.

    Show of force

    Emphasis on show.

    I'm sure it will be super effective - at driving binge drinking deeper underground anyway.
