Hmmm... as much as I deplore W&A and their half-a$$ed idea of property "management", I would actually like to see if there are ANY reports/complaints/notifications sent to W&A regarding that particular unit/balcony, from the past tenants over the last, oh, let's say five years.
If there are any, then that is reason enough to at least place some of the responsibility (these are college-aged people, one would expect they should have a modicum of common sense...no?) for this unfortunate accident, that piling 20+ people on an already questionable balcony is just not safe.
If there weren't any notifications, and W&A wasn't out there doing at least, yearly physical inspections on the structural integrity of what obviously gets abused by most college aged tenants and their guests... then yeah, time for a serious wake-up call for W&A and all property management companies and owners of said rental units.

Why are the actual addresses published? Specifically the last one, in my opinion, seems like an advertisement for thieves (granted, assuming they read this) for future hits upon this particular residence. I get it that the info is in police reports, but why does the Indy need to expose the victims of these crimes even more?

How about we decriminalize marijuana and find something else much more threatening to focus on... like GMO's taking over our food supplies, nuclear plant meltdowns, the criminals on Wall Street getting away with massive robbery... I could go on, but I find that it gets really depressing when much of the nation either has their heads up their arses or buried in the sand, and/or sometimes both.

PS - My point about more learning environment classes, is that even as a "well seasoned" rider, we ALWAYS have room for improvement! Have fun and stay safe!

Lots of things here to say...1) Congratulations! and welcome to the awesome world of riding.2) Please, go get more "learning environment" skills with a few more motorcycle safety courses, even if it's on your own dime, it's worth every penny and your life (as well as others), as with all due respect to you, your field and your efforts, one class is not enough, especially since you just started from scratch. 3) Be careful - now you're joining the ranks of the rest of us out there on two wheels, along with everyone else in their big metal boxes, many of whom are distracted and/or not even capable (or willing) of driving safely with any concern for others.
With much respect,Female Rider with 40 yrs on Two Wheels :)

Yeah, I think we need a better descriptive for someone who clearly, is not "a man", yet not "a child" any more either. Oh wait, we have one: A teenager.
