Hypocricy of the press or the college?

Obscene CDs: 4 engg students suspended
"In yet another crackdown by Anna University authorities four third-year Mechanical Engineering students of the College of Engineering, Guindy, were suspended on Wednesday for allegedly possessing obscene film CDs and misbehaviour in the hostels."

Anna University Vice Chancellor D Viswanathan said,
“As many as 300 hostel students own computers which are connected to local area network, so that students can share their information. However, we never expected them to use them for watching pornographic movies,”

Really? I mean does the H'ble Vice Chancellor really expects that from 21 year old males (and females //?//) or is it the media and public they are afraid of? I wonder even these kinds of suspension should be brought to limelight by media (or by me)? I mean in IITK we had various such cases of student logins getting suspended for non academic use, nothing more than that and probably that was the right amount of punishment/importance given to the matter, not worth a newspaper article anyway.
