Nice Move

This morning around 9:20am a robbery occurred in Athens, Ohio. According to Ohio University’s student newspaper, The Post, the university alert system warned its students around 10:00am that an armed fugitive had robbed an apartment and fled towards campus. According to some reports the armed robber made off with $5.

By 11:37am Athens police were no longer actively searching for the suspect but had cleared the initial crime scene. At 12:05pm Vice President for Student Affairs Ryan Lombardi tweeted that Ohio University would be closed for the rest of the day.

Then things escalated.

Ohio University students, who in 2011 raged their way to the title of top party school in the nation, essentially sprinted to the bars on Court Street, which had the good sense to open early and accomodate the students, who no doubt showed up to drink away their anxiety about the still at large Five Dollar Bandit. Students not at the bars are drinking at fraternity houses and off campus residences across the town.

Goddammit I want to be in Athens right now.

Currently Ohio University students are throwing what is no doubt one of the great day rages of the entire academic year while chanting O-U-Oh-Yeah, intoxicated by both tequila and fear (but probably mostly tequila). The student tweets about the rager have been tagged #FugitiveFest as well as #GunDayFunDay, and some local bars are apparently offering $5 pitcher specials, in honor of the victim’s loss.

Rage on Ohio University. Rage on.
