“We will shortly be announcing a

Jordan Hibler said if people con
tinue to read bis father’s e-mail, they
will further understand what he is dy
ing to accomplish.
“It all works to a certain point,” he
said. “Basically, if you keep reading
the e-mail, you’ll see the point.”
Outside of the so-called press
conference, some members of the
university community spoke about
David Hibler, his e-mail and the spec
tacle in the administration building.
UNL Police Chief Ken Cauble
said despite the size of the crowd out
side the chancellor’s office, Bushing
kept his cool and was able to keep
what could have beat a violent situa
tion under control.
Cauble said Bushing called for
backup when the crowd moved into
the hallway, blocking traffic,
although the extra officers never
entered the building.Zawabi said,
“We didn’t come here to have arm

answers. We wanted to knowwhathis
intent was and see how we, could
make sure this didn’t happen in die
future, and we didn’t get anywhere -
we didn’t get any answers”
Afrikan Peopled Union President
Donny White said David Hihler
made a “mockery” of die conference.
“Really,” White said, “I thought it
was a show, and I was kind of pre
pared for it because I’d heard that this
teacher, is rather eccentric.” >
Sophomore Eddie Brown agreed.
“It looks veryihildish and very
ignorant on his part, and it seemed
likeabig game they were playing”
was simply misunderstood. * >•
“(David) tried to tell a«tory, and
now they want to nail ham to a wall,”
he said. “And it’s sad because the man

“But what this incident shows is

takes this opportunity to step towards r
the future or whether we’ll just accept
it as business as usual.”
M Several campus groups also f ,
have issued statements speaking
against aspects of David Hibler’s ^
actions. They include: theAfnkan <
