Officer's actions were correct

We, the following members of Next House and Alpha Phi, would like to say that we do not agree with the views expressed in The Tech ["Campus Police arrest band manager," Nov. 5 regarding the arrest of the band band manager of Down Avenue. The manager, Susan Siedel, had been very uncooperative all night long, and we were having a hard time dealing with her ourselves.

Officer Henniger has worked at our parties many times before, and he has always been very reasonable and very understanding. We do not think the article that was published treated him fairly at all, and we question the accounts of the "witnesses" given in The Tech's article.

We all support the actions taken by Officer Henniger in helping us to abide by the Institute rules for on-campus parties, and we were very sorry to see him treated so unfairly.
