I was just watching the NBC Nightly News and a spring break riot they were reporting on caught my attention.
In Santa Barbara, Calif., an annual spring break party called deltopia of over 15,000 people turned into a wild scene of chaos and violence on Saturday night. It was near the University of California, which was ranked last yer as the number two top party school.
Many people have blamed visitors and tourists for all the violence. In my opinion the violence that started was not 100% the fault of the people who came to the deltopia event. This specific college is known to be a party school the people that came there knew that and that was probably one if the driving forces behind why they came there. When there is a party of that size and alcohol is involved there is bound to be some issues. I do not believe the idea that the violence was created by the tourists, I think the violence was created by the “party” reputation of the school. The PR rep at the university of California might want to work on building a different reputation so problems like this one don’t happen again.
