Burton Third Bombers’ Statement

We, the students of Burton Third, wish to issue a sincere and full apology for the events of the morning of April 24, 2009, for which we accept full responsibility. We understand that our actions have resulted in significant havoc for the Spring Weekend Committee, MIT Police, and community of Cambridge, and we regret wholly our failure to anticipate such an outcome. The offending object (a large concrete and sand “bomb,” modeled after the floor insignia and painted with the letters “DTYD XL” in black and orange) was created solely as a Hack to advertise an event to be held the same night. We did not intend to convey any threat or danger to the community. We pledge our full cooperation to the MIT police and administration to address any concerns pertaining to this issue.
