Suggests rioters may loose tax support


It's unfortunate that those I believe are spoiled children currently referred to as WWU students decided to display their ignorance, as well as their disdain for those who subsidize their time in Bellingham. Also unfortunate is their disdain toward taxpayers when they whine about tuition increases and their obligation to repay taxpayers' money they borrow to party at college. The taxpayers will pony up the money for the increased police patrols near the campus, they have little choice, now. The taxpayers, most of whom vote, will remember these spoiled brats when asked to support more subsidies to fund their "higher education." These partiers will have only themselves to blame when taxpaying laborers, craftsmen and service workers become un-sympathetic to their whining.
