    Your article states: “present at this year Rock the… addressing police brutally through Hip Hop” workshop as one of the panelist sharing his experience, opinions on the subject of police brutally…” Your “journalism” students might want to ask the writers of this article why they can’t seem to spell words like, “brutality” and why their grammar skills are lacking: “as one of the panelist…” Do you really expect anyone of any intelligence to take your students seriously, with content like this?

    Your journalism students STILL haven’t corrected the grammar mistakes in this article. The sentence, “the uncle of Oscar Grant,” makes it sound like it was the uncle who was shot, not Oscar Grant. There should be a comma after “(RTSB),” and their should be an apostrophe after “this year,” and “one of the panelist” needs an “s” after the phrase.
    The capitalization on the title of the workshop is awkward: why is “hip hop” capitalized, but nothing else? The rest of the paragraph is incorrect grammatically as well: “shared” and “answering” must agree in tense.

    I understand that these are students, but seriously, is this COLLEGE level work? Are there no supervising instructors for this work? Do these students not have access to basic spell check on their computers?

    I will be forwarding my comments to the President of your college. I think your “journalism” department needs to be reviewed for competency.
