University Police are investigating the theft of more than a thousand student newspapers at the
Laura says she found most of the papers in trash cans around the Student Union. Most of them were able to be put right back on the shelf. But more copies were stolen and trashed a second time. "We're trying to inform the students about the events that occur on campus and what happened that week was really important," said Luettger.
So why would anyone steal the papers? It may be because the front page story on the stolen issue was about the Student Government Vice President facing impeachment. "It's a very big deal when our government is being tried on counts of malfeasance. It shows us something is happening that's not exactly okay," said Amanda Seef, a news editor at “The Stylus”.
Amanda wrote the impeachment article.
"I think a lot of students are apathetic. They know we can write what has to be written," said Seef.
Students we talked to are outraged someone would steal the papers. "I feel it's a fairly well written paper and I enjoy it. It's upsetting that happened. I guess someone got what they wanted. I suppose. I don't think it was necessary. Maybe they'll realize what they did and turn themselves in but I doubt it," said Chris Wells, a Freshman.
For now, it's business as usual for "The Stylus". They put out another paper today.
