I contribute to the story about the ~10,000 copies of the Arizona Daily Wildcat being stolen.
It's suspected that the theft was probably carried out by Phi Kappa Psi members. There was a sheet of Spanish homework among the piles of papers. The names are of Phi Kappa Psi members.
The possible cause for the theft? It might be related to a Police Beat incident that happened at their fraternity. Since the stories broke, the fraternity has launched an internal investigation. Given the responses of the fraternity leadership to the incident and the homework discovery, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that members were carrying out orders.
Despite what many online commentators have said, this incident does constitute a crime, i.e. censorship.
