Boston colleges are reluctant to punish Red Sox revelers
The day after the Red Sox' Oct. 20 pennant victory over the New York Yankees, Menino urged schools to immediately expel students caught setting fires or destroying property.
But more than a month later, officials at schools including Northeastern University, Boston University and Boston College have yet to discipline most of the roughly 21 students arrested after the pennant win, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.
"You've got to send a message to the community at large that this will not be tolerated by the university," Menino said in an interview. "They can't say to us, 'There's a process.' The process has lasted over a month now."
Officials at other schools said they would investigate if presented with evidence that a student had broken laws, but would not initiate efforts to identify such students.
