The State College police department is working with the public to identify the protestors that destroyed a WTAJ news van during last month’s riot at Penn State.

On November 9th, thousands of Penn State students gathered in downtown State College to protest the firing of beloved football coach Joe Paterno.  The demonstration quickly escalated into a riot with angry students targeting the media for their presumed role in Paterno’s dismissal.

State College police have so far identified 33 people who caused havoc during the riot, according to WTAJ.  There is now a photo gallery on the State College city website with images of unruly protestors, including students who were responsible for tipping the WTAJ news van over.  The department is urging the public to come forward with tips and information about those involved.
