No doubt a couple of Maine South grads planning to come to NU in the fall and major in psychology. Fortunately for them, "doing research" should be a defense.

Probably just wanting to be somewhere where people didn't know them, so they came to a nearby city...Parents and neighbors are scary when you're doing something you have no business...But now everyone knows!

They sure didn't think it through. They were a black from the police station. DUH!
