-“After countless months of intense negotiations Belgian (and brave) photographer Kusters was  granted the opportunity to spend 2 years with one of the Yakuza gangs  to document and photograph their way of life. He was given unprecedented  access to one of the most inaccessible subcultures in the world – able  to photograph business meetings, visits to bath houses, strip clubs and  even funerals.”

Another Follow Up of the Day: Thousands of Penn State students took to the streets of downtown State College last night to protest the termination of legendary Nittany Lions coach Joe “JoePa” Paterno.
What began as a relatively calm outpouring of support outside Old Main quickly descended into a full-scale riot as students became “increasingly belligerent” and began throwing rocks and tearing down street signs.
Tensions reached a boiling point after a lamppost and a local news van were toppled (see below / more footage here).




Police in riot gear moved in, and the school urged students via text alert to disperse. The Daily Collegian reported that the area was finally cleared after police “sprayed a substance on the campus side of College Avenue.”
The police eventually shut down College Ave, and the last of the lingerers left the scene around 1 AM.
In a press conference this morning, Paterno’s replacement Tom Bradley would not address the Sandusky allegations, but said “we’re obviously in a very unprecedented situation; we’ve got to find a way to restore the confidence.”
