From the New York Post:

Tessa Majors murder: Suspect, 13, arrested in stabbing of Barnard student
By Tina Moore, Larry Celona, Khristina Narizhnaya and Amanda Woods December 13, 2019 | 8:29am

A 13-year-old boy has been arrested in the fatal stabbing of Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors — as new details emerged Friday about the murder.

Law enforcement sources told The Post the teen confessed to detectives that he and two of his middle-school buddies headed out Wednesday evening planning to pull off a string of muggings.

The menacing young trio first targeted a man in Morningside Park, near Barnard, in Manhattan, but for some reason, they got scared off, sources said.

Then they spotted Majors, a Virginia native and musician, near stairs at the park around West 116th Street and Morningside Drive, sources said.

The teens snuck up behind the 18-year-old woman, grabbed her and swiped her bag before stabbing her, sources said.

“He said they tried to rob her. Then she was stabbed, and she died,’’ a source said. “They were trying to rob her, she resisted, and they stabbed her.’’

… Paulina Pinsky, 27, a writer who went to Barnard as an undergrad and has lived in the area her whole life, said, “I think about that 13-year-old. I think about how desperate he must have been for something.”

How long until Ava DuVernay, director of “When They See Us” about the Central Park Five, is hired by Netflix to concoct a five part miniseries on how the Morningside Park Three’s beautiful black baby bodies were framed by whites?

By the way, have you noticed this too? Often when I click on a New York Post article, soon the fan on my computer comes on and my CPU slows down.

In general, right of center websites like the Post seem more prone to push the envelope of monetizing clicks in ways that generate big externalities for users.

    From the NY Times:

    "Reached by phone, another aunt, Sonia Davis, said she did not believe the boy took part in the murder.

    “No, I don’t think he did this, not at all,” Ms. Davis said."

    Whether the boy can be tried as an adult under NY law depends on whether he was the actual stabber or an accomplice. At this point, they have 2 of the 3 boys involved and they both point to #3 , not yet in custody, as the actual stabber. Of course when they find #3, he will say that #1 or #2 was the stabber.

    There have been previous muggings in the same park for a year, often by gangs of youths.

    A Chinese student was mugged after being in the country a grand total of 4 days. He said the police told him since the kids were juveniles there isn’t much they could do. A gay activist was put in a coma by a group of youths. There was a protest to do something about the park but the activist didn’t were leery of a heavy handed police response.

    The next big legal struggle will be whether he is tried as an adult. If so, he can be kept past his 21st birthday and required to serve an adult sentence. If he is treated as a juvenile, he will be out by 18 or 21. His lawyers will obviously fight for him to be tried as a juvenile.

    Either way, he won't have a criminal record under NY law, but if they give him 25 to life people will kind of wonder about that 25 year blank spot on his resume when he gets out at age 40.

    From the linked story:

    The boy’s mother is dead, neighbors said.

    You can take it as a given that the father was not a presence in his life.

    They were probably robbing her in order to buy drugs. Later in the same article:

    [The boy] didn’t seem like that type of individual who would kill somebody,’’ said Raymond Sears, a 46-year-old food-service worker, adding that the teen was close with his mother.

    “He’s just a normal person,’’ Sears said of the suspect. “Any time I come by, I’m like, ‘Yo, what’s going on, Shorty?’ You know I call him [that][ ’cause he’s short.

    Tessa probably didn't take the shrimpy little black kid seriously.


    “He just hangs out, he smokes weed, just a normal person in my eyes.”

    “He smokes his little weed, who doesn’t nowadays?’’ Sears added.

    Later still:

    "A 13-year-old suspect cannot be tried as an adult."


    This is not true.

    , @SMK
    Hold the parents responsible? Why, because 13-year-old low-IQ savages and predators, biological men who are absurdly defined as "children", are too young and immature to form the mens rea and criminal intent to commit armed robbery and murder? If convicted, they'll probably be sentenced to a "juvenile facility" and released at age 18 to commit more aggravated assaults, muggings, armed robberies, rapes, murders, etc. I wonder how many felonies they've committed, collectively and individually, before this atrocity.

    If their victim had been a teacher who had sex with one of them, she'd likely be sentenced to at least 5-10 years in prison and perhaps even 20-40 years and a lifetime of public sex-offender registration as a uniquely dangerous and degenerate criminal.

    , @Days of Broken Arrows
    If you're going to hold adults responsible for the behavior of their children, you send the message that those kids aren't responsible for what they do. And in doing that, you encourage more bad behavior.

    "Hey, let's go steal the liquor! Worst that can happen is they'll bust my dad for it -- har har."

    In my day (the 1980s) kids faced real time in "juvie" for committing even small transgressions. So they didn't do things that would put them before a judge. It wasn't a revolving door, either. One kid I know got locked up until he turned 18. The crime? Vandalism.

    Final thought: If you hold parents responsible for the bad things their kids do, shouldn't that also mean they get credit for the good things? So, all those sports trophies, honor roll accolades, and "senior superlative" awards should go to mom and dad, not junior, if we implement your line of thinking.

    It is true technically. They can’t be tried in adult court. NY law has been changed recently (surprise!) All juveniles under 16 are tried in juvenile court. Violent juveniles are sent to the “Youth Part” where there records are opened and they can be sentenced to prison as an adult.

    Looks like they’ve already determined the 13 year old will be tried in Family Court as he did not stab the girl. It’s unclear if the 14 year old will face charges last I read but he too didn’t stab her, so no Youth Part.

    In one of his parole hearings, Walter Moseley, serial rapist, kidnapper, armed robber, and killer of Kitty Genovese, explained that he was the real victim of his crimes, because, "For a victim outside, it's a one-time or one-hour or one-minute affair, but for the person who's caught, it's forever."

    At the same hearing, Moseley claimed he never intended to kill Genovese and that he considered her murder to be a mugging because "people do kill people when they mug them sometimes."

    It's a long, long way from Morningside Park to Co-Op city!
  22. Even during late-Giuliani era/early Bloomberg era NYC—i.e. when crime was really, really down, and really couldn’t go down much further, and NYC was one of the safest cities in the country (not kidding, the crime stats bore this out)—-even THEN Morningside Park was a nogo most of the time. It was just bad news. So I am unsurprised this occurred there in NYC in the de Blasio era.

    Morningside Park is basically the divide between the Columbia/Barnard side and a nasty part of Harlem just below 125th St. Columbia/Barnard was built on a natural hill, and Morningside Park is a sloped downhill park that rolls right into the ghetto.

    Barnard is also all-girls feminazi school, so it has large share of militant manhaters and ditzy free spirit lefty girls, both of whom laugh off warnings about “bad” neighborhoods. I’m guessing this musician chick was one of the latter group.

    If you’re ever on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and are touring the campuses and the “fun” part of Harlem (e.g. 125th St. during a well-policed event), avoid going South of of 125th that isn’t directly above Columbia/Barnard, and avoid going East of the Columbia/Barnard campus. If you must explore more, go to the west, where you have the Hudson River and much-safer Riverside Park, although these days it, too, is getting dicier..

    Does Columbia Barnard warn its students about the dangerous neighborhood? Or does Columbia cling to the liberal fantasy that black neighborhoods are not dangerous? Does anyone know? The victim is first year from Virginia. I assume Barnard hides black Harlem crime in its promotional materials.

    Fun fact. General President Eisenhower was president of Columbia Barnard in the late 1940s.
    He took one look at the neighborhood and the location of his faculty house and bought handguns for himself and his wife. They carried whenever they left the house.

    Wikipedia is bullish on the murderpark:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morningside_Park_(Manhattan)#Cleanup_and_current_state

    Several stairs and entrances were rebuilt, including at or near 114th, 116th, 120th, and 122nd Streets, and playgrounds to the south of the ballfields and at the park's northeast corner were renovated. The ballfields and northern section's scenery were restored in 2006, and a playground to the north of 116th Street started construction in 2007. This playground was completed in September 2008. Morningside Park was designated a New York City landmark in 2008, decades after similar statuses had been conferred upon Central and Riverside Parks. Since then, additional improvements have taken place within the park. Additional trees were delivered to the park in 2009, including a sequoia tree. Two years later, NYC Parks presented a plan to restore the northern section and add a playground there. The area around Morningside Park, once a desolate area with a reputation for being crime-ridden, has become gentrified in the 2010s.
     
    Whenever I hear "playground" I picture a few aggressive youths with a baseball and a boombox and tons of litter making the place miserable as bizzaredly burly grown-ups in gangsta outfits sit on the sidelines and look on. Maybe it's just me.

    Glenn Reynolds spoke highly of her dad and posted a pic of the family, so unlikely she's an SJW.

    A lot of effort has been put into reclaiming urban parks in the past decade. Washington Park here in Cincinnati in front of Music Hall is a prime example. We've got a new park with a nice new playground at the end of our street that attracts both ambitious black parents and 30ish whites. Only had to avoid it once so far - rowdy twelve-year-olds. No knives.

    We'll see. The murder could be a freak exception or it could be a return to Lindsay's New York.

    “No, I don’t think he did this, not at all,” Ms. Davis said.”

    Whether the boy can be tried as an adult under NY law depends on whether he was the actual stabber or an accomplice. At this point, they have 2 of the 3 boys involved and they both point to #3 , not yet in custody, as the actual stabber. Of course when they find #3, he will say that #1 or #2 was the stabber.

    Even during late-Giuliani era/early Bloomberg era NYC---i.e. when crime was really, really down, and really couldn't go down much further, and NYC was one of the safest cities in the country (not kidding, the crime stats bore this out)----even THEN Morningside Park was a nogo most of the time. It was just bad news. So I am unsurprised this occurred there in NYC in the de Blasio era.

    Morningside Park is basically the divide between the Columbia/Barnard side and a nasty part of Harlem just below 125th St. Columbia/Barnard was built on a natural hill, and Morningside Park is a sloped downhill park that rolls right into the ghetto.

    Barnard is also all-girls feminazi school, so it has large share of militant manhaters and ditzy free spirit lefty girls, both of whom laugh off warnings about "bad" neighborhoods. I'm guessing this musician chick was one of the latter group.

    If you're ever on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and are touring the campuses and the "fun" part of Harlem (e.g. 125th St. during a well-policed event), avoid going South of of 125th that isn't directly above Columbia/Barnard, and avoid going East of the Columbia/Barnard campus. If you must explore more, go to the west, where you have the Hudson River and much-safer Riverside Park, although these days it, too, is getting dicier..

    Does Columbia Barnard warn its students about the dangerous neighborhood? Or does Columbia cling to the liberal fantasy that black neighborhoods are not dangerous? Does anyone know? The victim is first year from Virginia. I assume Barnard hides black Harlem crime in its promotional materials.

    Fun fact. General President Eisenhower was president of Columbia Barnard in the late 1940s.
    He took one look at the neighborhood and the location of his faculty house and bought handguns for himself and his wife. They carried whenever they left the house.

    All colleges have the same orientation and warnings. “ Be aware of your surroundings “ as if trees sidewalks benches windows walls windows empty parked cars bike racks could hurt anyone. Never is there one word about the men actual human men who do the robbing and attacking. Don’t worry about robbers, worry about surroundings.

    There are separate avoid rape sessions for the women. That’s just lies slander and defamation. The only rapists are the male students. In truth almost all campus rapes are outsiders come to campus looking for a woman to rape. The only useful advice is to not walk alone and use the shuttle bus and escort service after dark

    The feminazis vilify White fraternity men. But back when campuses first became unsafe it was White fraternities who started the campus escort services.

    3 black men are almost always a robbery team, on foot or in a car.

Why, because 13-year-old low-IQ savages and predators, biological men who are absurdly defined as “children”, are too young and immature to form the mens rea and criminal intent to commit armed robbery and murder? If convicted, they’ll probably be sentenced to a “juvenile facility” and released at age 18 to commit more aggravated assaults, muggings, armed robberies, rapes, murders, etc. I wonder how many felonies they’ve committed, collectively and individually, before this atrocity.

    If their victim had been a teacher who had sex with one of them, she’d likely be sentenced to at least 5-10 years in prison and perhaps even 20-40 years and a lifetime of public sex-offender registration as a uniquely dangerous and degenerate criminal.

    From the linked story:

    The boy’s mother is dead, neighbors said.

    You can take it as a given that the father was not a presence in his life.

    They were probably robbing her in order to buy drugs. Later in the same article:

    [The boy] didn’t seem like that type of individual who would kill somebody,’’ said Raymond Sears, a 46-year-old food-service worker, adding that the teen was close with his mother.

    “He’s just a normal person,’’ Sears said of the suspect. “Any time I come by, I’m like, ‘Yo, what’s going on, Shorty?’ You know I call him [that][ ’cause he’s short.

    Tessa probably didn't take the shrimpy little black kid seriously.


    “He just hangs out, he smokes weed, just a normal person in my eyes.”

    “He smokes his little weed, who doesn’t nowadays?’’ Sears added.

    Later still:

    "A 13-year-old suspect cannot be tried as an adult."


    This is not true.

    It is true technically. They can’t be tried in adult court. NY law has been changed recently (surprise!) All juveniles under 16 are tried in juvenile court. Violent juveniles are sent to the “Youth Part” where there records are opened and they can be sentenced to prison as an adult.

    Looks like they’ve already determined the 13 year old will be tried in Family Court as he did not stab the girl. It’s unclear if the 14 year old will face charges last I read but he too didn’t stab her, so no Youth Part.

    Hold the "parents" responsible.

    If you’re going to hold adults responsible for the behavior of their children, you send the message that those kids aren’t responsible for what they do. And in doing that, you encourage more bad behavior.

    “Hey, let’s go steal the liquor! Worst that can happen is they’ll bust my dad for it — har har.”

    In my day (the 1980s) kids faced real time in “juvie” for committing even small transgressions. So they didn’t do things that would put them before a judge. It wasn’t a revolving door, either. One kid I know got locked up until he turned 18. The crime? Vandalism.

    Final thought: If you hold parents responsible for the bad things their kids do, shouldn’t that also mean they get credit for the good things? So, all those sports trophies, honor roll accolades, and “senior superlative” awards should go to mom and dad, not junior, if we implement your line of thinking.

    I don't blame this girl at all, not even though she had green hair and probably thought that Donald Trump was icky. No one deserves to die just for that. Back in the day, everyone at Columbia was instructed on day 1 to never, ever go into Morningside Park. In recent years, the park was thought to be safer (only 1 murder in this district so far this year before this one) so the students no longer received these instructions. She wasn't doing anything that was thought to be particularly dangerous or stupid.

    Recently, robberies in the park have been ticking up - apparently it was a fad among the middle school students of the neighborhood, like the knock out game has been in other times and places. I guess word got out that you could do this with little risk of having to face any consequences. Ghetto teens are rational (if amoral) actors and there is a tremendous grapevine as to what is and is not OK to do, and recently mugging people in Morningside Park moved onto the OK side. An easy way to make some pocket money, little risk of being caught - what's not to like? The NYC police under De Blasio did not see this as any cause for great alarm and these robberies have been going on all year now - dozens of them, though none had turned to murder up until now. Sure they were a nuisance but not as bad as the threat of white supremacy or something truly dangerous. Apparently it did not occur to them that it was only a matter of time before one of the robberies went bad. This is classic "broken windows" policing but that's apparently out of fashion or racis' or something.

    I don't blame that poor girl. I do blame De Blasio and the other adults who should have known better.

    Barnard is also all-girls feminazi school, so it has large share of militant manhaters and ditzy free spirit lefty girls, both of whom laugh off warnings about “bad” neighborhoods. I’m guessing this musician chick was one of the latter group.
     
    The photographs of the victim, who was from Virginia, show a cheerful girl of 18, very conservatively and preppily dressed by the standards of her cohort in 2019.

    She had been a freshman and resident on that campus for all of 3 months when she was murdered on Wednesday, and I speculate that it is unlikely that she would have been co-opted into the ways and attitudes any putative "free spirit lefty" sub-culture. May she rest in peace.

    I mean at that age I thought it'd be cool to dye my hair wild colours too, I don't read much of anything it.

    If you listen to the music (her band's whole album is on spotify/youtube) it's just standard middle of the road white college kid teenage rock, pretty much entirely about relationships, not man hating stuff or even anything political at all. They're just normal white kids playing music.

    Looks like they’ve already determined the 13 year old will be tried in Family Court as he did not stab the girl. It’s unclear if the 14 year old will face charges last I read but he too didn’t stab her, . . .
     
    Nobody stabber her. It was a simple robbery gone tragically wrong. They were too young to know what they were doing. Nobody stabbed anybody. The knife went in.

    The knife went in.

    And if one admits there was a stabbing, that wasn’t the real him. The real him is a law-abiding citizen who serves his community and wants only the good of others. The one who commited the stabbing — that must’ve been the fake him.

    If you're going to hold adults responsible for the behavior of their children, you send the message that those kids aren't responsible for what they do. And in doing that, you encourage more bad behavior.

    "Hey, let's go steal the liquor! Worst that can happen is they'll bust my dad for it -- har har."

    In my day (the 1980s) kids faced real time in "juvie" for committing even small transgressions. So they didn't do things that would put them before a judge. It wasn't a revolving door, either. One kid I know got locked up until he turned 18. The crime? Vandalism.

    Final thought: If you hold parents responsible for the bad things their kids do, shouldn't that also mean they get credit for the good things? So, all those sports trophies, honor roll accolades, and "senior superlative" awards should go to mom and dad, not junior, if we implement your line of thinking.

    Isn’t there some kind of law to that effect? Or is it just purely financial?

    Even during late-Giuliani era/early Bloomberg era NYC---i.e. when crime was really, really down, and really couldn't go down much further, and NYC was one of the safest cities in the country (not kidding, the crime stats bore this out)----even THEN Morningside Park was a nogo most of the time. It was just bad news. So I am unsurprised this occurred there in NYC in the de Blasio era.

    Morningside Park is basically the divide between the Columbia/Barnard side and a nasty part of Harlem just below 125th St. Columbia/Barnard was built on a natural hill, and Morningside Park is a sloped downhill park that rolls right into the ghetto.

    Barnard is also all-girls feminazi school, so it has large share of militant manhaters and ditzy free spirit lefty girls, both of whom laugh off warnings about "bad" neighborhoods. I'm guessing this musician chick was one of the latter group.

    If you're ever on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and are touring the campuses and the "fun" part of Harlem (e.g. 125th St. during a well-policed event), avoid going South of of 125th that isn't directly above Columbia/Barnard, and avoid going East of the Columbia/Barnard campus. If you must explore more, go to the west, where you have the Hudson River and much-safer Riverside Park, although these days it, too, is getting dicier..

    Wikipedia is bullish on the murderpark:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morningside_Park_(Manhattan)#Cleanup_and_current_state

    Several stairs and entrances were rebuilt, including at or near 114th, 116th, 120th, and 122nd Streets, and playgrounds to the south of the ballfields and at the park’s northeast corner were renovated. The ballfields and northern section’s scenery were restored in 2006, and a playground to the north of 116th Street started construction in 2007. This playground was completed in September 2008. Morningside Park was designated a New York City landmark in 2008, decades after similar statuses had been conferred upon Central and Riverside Parks. Since then, additional improvements have taken place within the park. Additional trees were delivered to the park in 2009, including a sequoia tree. Two years later, NYC Parks presented a plan to restore the northern section and add a playground there. The area around Morningside Park, once a desolate area with a reputation for being crime-ridden, has become gentrified in the 2010s.

    Whenever I hear “playground” I picture a few aggressive youths with a baseball and a boombox and tons of litter making the place miserable as bizzaredly burly grown-ups in gangsta outfits sit on the sidelines and look on. Maybe it’s just me.

  60. I’ve mentioned before that last May my daughter, then a sophomore at UCLA, was brutally attacked and seriously injured by her then roommate. The attack involved the assailant throwing heavy blunt objects at her, knocking her to the floor multiple times, tearing apart her property, etc. The result was an injured hand and broken finger, bruises all over our daughter’s body, etc., all carefully documented in medical reports, photos, and X-rays.

    Our daughter was on the phone with UCPD Dispatch through most of the attack.

    The cops have passed on the evidence to the City Attorney and made clear to us that of course our daughter did not break any law: the cops did warn us that the City Attorney normally deep-sixes battery cases where one UCLA student assaults another.

    UCLA, however, is accusing our daughter of serious crimes, despite the police report to the contrary: specifically of lying to the police (the police are not claiming that!) and of assaulting the assailant. The University officials have no evidence and do not pretend to have any: their argument, for example, is that our daughter held the assailant’s sleeves to try to halt the attack, and that our daughter thereby assaulted the attacker! (California law, going back to 1872, explicitly defines self-defense as lawful, and holding an assailant’s sleeves to try to stop the attack is a rather minimal form of self-defense.)

    What UCLA has made clear is that they want both our daughter and the assailant to simply apologize. That one student initiated and carried out the assault and seriously injured our daughter does not really matter. (Our daughter was in the process of moving out of the room because I had figured out that the roommate was criminally unbalanced,)

    Who did what to whom is irrelevant.

    All that matters is that you must mouth appropriately meaningless words of repentance even if you did nothing wrong and were actually the victim of the attack.

    The campus paper has run a detailed exposé followed by an editorial on the matter. A former member of the Board of Regents even wrote a letter-to-the -editor on the issue.

    Fortunately, our daughter survived, unlike Tessa Majors.

    But I do think it is only when something like this happens to your own daughter that you can fully realize that this is not a matter of a handful of vicious thugs. The problem is that we have given power and authority to member of a professional-managerial class who are not simply insane but outright evil. “Kafkaesque” is no longer adequate to describe the ruling professional-managerial class in our society.

    That is a dramatic story. Though I'm not sure it is advisable to have shared it in this forum given how close it is to home for you, thank you for sharing it.

    I read the UCLA newspaper article with the hope of finding out what the motivation for the attack could have been but didn't find any, except this:


    She said her relationship with her former roommate initially deteriorated prior to the attack because her roommate was insensitive of [PhysicistDave's daughter's] constant migraines.
     
    Yet the confrontation/attack/whatever-it-was, was as she was moving out. If she'd had some problems getting along for any reason (it happens), you'd think the unnamed roommate would be glad to see her go; why attack? It doesn't make sense.

    Unless UCLA has introduced a new quota for the historically-underrepresented mentally unstable section of the population.

    I'm truly sorry to hear of your daughter's experience, PhysicistDave. I hope that, with guidance, she will shake off the worst of the after-effects as she goes through the years and not have her self-confidence impacted. As the daughter of a college senior, I read your account with horror.

    PiltdownBrother-in-Law used to teach at UCLA, and I do remember him saying (though this was a couple of decades ago) that UCLA, in particular, had a very sclerotic and unimaginative bureaucracy, even in comparison with other parts of the U.Cal system.

    My daughter is at a similar sized university in the Northeast, and there, too, there is an enormous bureaucratic superstructure, evidenced by the numerous bland, corporatized "your student's welfare is our closest concern" type emails we get from various functionaries with comfortable sinecures and intricate job titles.

    They were probably robbing her in order to buy drugs. Later in the same article:

    [The boy] didn’t seem like that type of individual who would kill somebody,’’ said Raymond Sears, a 46-year-old food-service worker, adding that the teen was close with his mother.

    “He’s just a normal person,’’ Sears said of the suspect. “Any time I come by, I’m like, ‘Yo, what’s going on, Shorty?’ You know I call him [that][ ’cause he’s short.

    Tessa probably didn't take the shrimpy little black kid seriously.


    “He just hangs out, he smokes weed, just a normal person in my eyes.”

    “He smokes his little weed, who doesn’t nowadays?’’ Sears added.

    Later still:

    "A 13-year-old suspect cannot be tried as an adult."


    This is not true.

    “The boy’s mother is dead, neighbors said.”

    Thanks for posting this snippet. It led me to the main story, which is a propaganda piece.

    I'm a recovering journalist. The writing in this article bends over backwards to "humanize" the accused killer. It's a sympathetic portrait, with details designed to tweak emotions.

    "Skinny" = a way to infer he's frail and poor. Why use that word? Why not "thin?" Because "skinny" conjures images of a homeless puppy.

    The writer(s) also have the defendant biting his lip "nervously." As opposed to what? Happily? Why throw in that emotion unless you're trying to manipulate readers?

    This is Phase One. What will Phase Two be? It'll be when these same writers start digging up dirt on the deceased to put her at fault. She was blonde, Southern, and attractive so they're allowed to victim blame since she's The Enemy.

    Her father is a professor, good chance she absorbed it at home. She fought back, so I give her credit for that
     
    Her father is a professor of English at James Madison University, and from an old Tennessee family, the nephew of Johnny Majors, once a well-known college football coach. Unlike many professors of English, he's actually published about half-a-dozen novels. Their subject matter, old Southern families, Christian dating, and so on, don't exactly scream "free-spirit lefty" or even that he is from what is now the mainstream of English professors, the Derrida/Foucault/Lacan inspired school of pedagogy.

    Blaming the victim of a bunch of young Harlem thugs, simply because she was a first-semester freshman at one of the Seven Sisters schools, is speculative—at best.

    Those boys from PS 180 have been marauding around the park late afternoon and evening for months robbing and attacking.

    Did your parents allow you to arrive home from school at 9,10 pm? Did you let your children maraud around town with a pack of robbers after school and not get home time 9,10,or later at night?

    Somewhat functional guardians would have their ward home for dinner at the time he and his pack were killing the girl. Some reports say the attack happened at 5/30, others at 7; dinner time in a normal household of any race religion or finances.

    The kids probably spent their robbery money on pizza and Macdonalds instead of going home for dinner every night.

    Thanks for posting this snippet. It led me to the main story, which is a propaganda piece.

    I’m a recovering journalist. The writing in this article bends over backwards to “humanize” the accused killer. It’s a sympathetic portrait, with details designed to tweak emotions.

    “Skinny” = a way to infer he’s frail and poor. Why use that word? Why not “thin?” Because “skinny” conjures images of a homeless puppy.

    The writer(s) also have the defendant biting his lip “nervously.” As opposed to what? Happily? Why throw in that emotion unless you’re trying to manipulate readers?

    This is Phase One. What will Phase Two be? It’ll be when these same writers start digging up dirt on the deceased to put her at fault. She was blonde, Southern, and attractive so they’re allowed to victim blame since she’s The Enemy.

  84. @PhysicistDave
    I've mentioned before that last May my daughter, then a sophomore at UCLA, was brutally attacked and seriously injured by her then roommate. The attack involved the assailant throwing heavy blunt objects at her, knocking her to the floor multiple times, tearing apart her property, etc. The result was an injured hand and broken finger, bruises all over our daughter's body, etc., all carefully documented in medical reports, photos, and X-rays.

    Our daughter was on the phone with UCPD Dispatch through most of the attack.

    The cops have passed on the evidence to the City Attorney and made clear to us that of course our daughter did not break any law: the cops did warn us that the City Attorney normally deep-sixes battery cases where one UCLA student assaults another.

    UCLA, however, is accusing our daughter of serious crimes, despite the police report to the contrary: specifically of lying to the police (the police are not claiming that!) and of assaulting the assailant. The University officials have no evidence and do not pretend to have any: their argument, for example, is that our daughter held the assailant's sleeves to try to halt the attack, and that our daughter thereby assaulted the attacker! (California law, going back to 1872, explicitly defines self-defense as lawful, and holding an assailant's sleeves to try to stop the attack is a rather minimal form of self-defense.)

    What UCLA has made clear is that they want both our daughter and the assailant to simply apologize. That one student initiated and carried out the assault and seriously injured our daughter does not really matter. (Our daughter was in the process of moving out of the room because I had figured out that the roommate was criminally unbalanced,)

    Who did what to whom is irrelevant.

    All that matters is that you must mouth appropriately meaningless words of repentance even if you did nothing wrong and were actually the victim of the attack.

    The campus paper has run a detailed exposé followed by an editorial on the matter. A former member of the Board of Regents even wrote a letter-to-the -editor on the issue.

    Fortunately, our daughter survived, unlike Tessa Majors.

    But I do think it is only when something like this happens to your own daughter that you can fully realize that this is not a matter of a handful of vicious thugs. The problem is that we have given power and authority to member of a professional-managerial class who are not simply insane but outright evil. "Kafkaesque" is no longer adequate to describe the ruling professional-managerial class in our society.

    That is a dramatic story. Though I’m not sure it is advisable to have shared it in this forum given how close it is to home for you, thank you for sharing it.

    I read the UCLA newspaper article with the hope of finding out what the motivation for the attack could have been but didn’t find any, except this:

    She said her relationship with her former roommate initially deteriorated prior to the attack because her roommate was insensitive of [PhysicistDave’s daughter’s] constant migraines.

    Yet the confrontation/attack/whatever-it-was, was as she was moving out. If she’d had some problems getting along for any reason (it happens), you’d think the unnamed roommate would be glad to see her go; why attack? It doesn’t make sense.

    Unless UCLA has introduced a new quota for the historically-underrepresented mentally unstable section of the population.

    Well, we tried to deal with it just internally with UCLA and UCPD for several months, with the results that I related. Only then did we go to the Daily Bruin (campus paper), so everything I mentioned here is now public. We're going to go to metro, state, and national media now since the only thing that seems to affect UCLA is publicity -- they do not even much care about lawsuits, since they are covered by the taxpayers of California.

    In fact, UCLA lost a major case in March 2018, Regents v. Rosen, in the CA Supreme Court: the high court specifically addressed the issue of colleges' responsibility for student safety in dorms.

    The Supreme Court decision had no effect at all: I specifically brought it up with top administrators and they just lied, blatantly and bizarrely, about what the Court had said.

    We know a number of faculty and staff at UCLA: ,at the time of the attack, my cousin was chair of one of the largest departments on campus. Most are decent people, but all of them have the attitude that the administration is completey out of control and no one dares speak up about it.

    I doubt it can be changed by anything short of criminal prosecutions of top administrators.

    Hail also asked:

    If she’d had some problems getting along for any reason (it happens), you’d think the unnamed roommate would be glad to see her go; why attack? It doesn’t make sense.
     
    The roommate admitted to the authorities after the fact that she had ben illegally recording our daughter. Our daughter had been instructed by the housing director not to engage the roommate, so she did not respond. The immediate cause of the assault seems to be that the illegal recording (which our daughter was unaware of at the time) was not working out as the roommate planned.

    The less proximate cause was that five days earlier the roommate had had her boyfriend spend the night, in violation of university rules and without our daughter's consent. The noise due to the boyfriend (he snored loudly through the night) kept our daughter from sleeping and thereby worsened our daughter's medical condition. When our daughter tired to discuss this issue, the roommate blew up.

    That event five days earlier was the first real sign of conflict, but the roommate had been going on for some time about her participation in criminal activities, her psychological problems, etc., so, yes, there was reason to think she was disturbed.

    So, I'm afraid there is something to your comment:

    Unless UCLA has introduced a new quota for the historically-underrepresented mentally unstable section of the population.
     
    The problem is the University actively encourages the students who are disturbed.

    From the NY Times:

    "Reached by phone, another aunt, Sonia Davis, said she did not believe the boy took part in the murder.

    “No, I don’t think he did this, not at all,” Ms. Davis said."

    Whether the boy can be tried as an adult under NY law depends on whether he was the actual stabber or an accomplice. At this point, they have 2 of the 3 boys involved and they both point to #3 , not yet in custody, as the actual stabber. Of course when they find #3, he will say that #1 or #2 was the stabber.

    I don’t blame this girl at all, not even though she had green hair and probably thought that Donald Trump was icky. No one deserves to die just for that. Back in the day, everyone at Columbia was instructed on day 1 to never, ever go into Morningside Park. In recent years, the park was thought to be safer (only 1 murder in this district so far this year before this one) so the students no longer received these instructions. She wasn’t doing anything that was thought to be particularly dangerous or stupid.

    Recently, robberies in the park have been ticking up – apparently it was a fad among the middle school students of the neighborhood, like the knock out game has been in other times and places. I guess word got out that you could do this with little risk of having to face any consequences. Ghetto teens are rational (if amoral) actors and there is a tremendous grapevine as to what is and is not OK to do, and recently mugging people in Morningside Park moved onto the OK side. An easy way to make some pocket money, little risk of being caught – what’s not to like? The NYC police under De Blasio did not see this as any cause for great alarm and these robberies have been going on all year now – dozens of them, though none had turned to murder up until now. Sure they were a nuisance but not as bad as the threat of white supremacy or something truly dangerous. Apparently it did not occur to them that it was only a matter of time before one of the robberies went bad. This is classic “broken windows” policing but that’s apparently out of fashion or racis’ or something.

    I don’t blame that poor girl. I do blame De Blasio and the other adults who should have known better.

    I’m sorely disappointed to read garbage bullshit like this here. How did you arrive at the conclusion that this young white woman “fought back” thereby causing her own murder? Did she give a statement to that effect?

    Or maybe the feral negro boys gave statements attempting to deflect responsibility, perhaps even telling detectives that the victim had called them “niggers” and thus had it coming? In any case, your info was fed to you by the same media that routinely calls negro mob attacks on lone white victims, “fights”. The same media that universally labels negro on white murders, “a robbery gone wrong.”

    If you want to believe the negroes’ “we dindu nuffin” defense that’s fine, just don’t think you won’t get called out on it when you publish propagandistic bullshit comments. These savages set out that night with an intent to murder theyselves a cracka and they found one sure to be incapable of defending herself. In a sane nation they’d be lynched after cops and media began their excuse-making for their heinous crime.

    Their profession (or at least hobby) was armed robbery and a knife was the tool of their trade. People who are truckers sometimes kill pedestrians but this doesn't make them professional murderers. Yes, once you have actually killed someone the picture changes but their goal that day was cash and phones, not blood. The law punishes armed robbers severely but less severely than murderers and for good reason.

    The armed robbers mantra (whether expressly stated or not) is "Your money or your life." If you choose not to give them your money, that is what is at stake. Everyone in the ghetto knows this. It's possible that Tessa was not clear on the rules of the game.

    There is absolutely no way in a frozen hell that babble can be allowed to fly given the superabundance of counterexamples. Something tells me you didn’t spend time in a hospital room with a talkative black kid who was dumb enough to cooperate and got his legs shredded by buckshot. These were people who lowered themselves below the level of human and this killing should be thought of in the same terms as something a coyote does.

    Fighting back unfortunately is what got her killed. If she had just given them her stuff, she probably would have been fine. The kids went to the park to rob people, not to kill them. These kids were small but there were 3 of them and they were armed so taking them on was not a good idea. The #2 choice after giving them your stuff was to try to run away. Staying and fighting was a really stupid idea, unfortunately.

    I’m sorely disappointed to read garbage bullshit like this here. How did you arrive at the conclusion that this young white woman “fought back” thereby causing her own murder? Did she give a statement to that effect?

    Or maybe the feral negro boys gave statements attempting to deflect responsibility, perhaps even telling detectives that the victim had called them “niggers” and thus had it coming? In any case, your info was fed to you by the same media that routinely calls negro mob attacks on lone white victims, “fights”. The same media that universally labels negro on white murders, “a robbery gone wrong.”

    If you want to believe the negroes’ “we dindu nuffin” defense that’s fine, just don’t think you won’t get called out on it when you publish propagandistic bullshit comments. These savages set out that night with an intent to murder theyselves a cracka and they found one sure to be incapable of defending herself. In a sane nation they’d be lynched after cops and media began their excuse-making for their heinous crime. This is no longer a sane nation with well over 50% of the people either dissembling bullshit like yourself or naively believing that same bullshit.

    Even during late-Giuliani era/early Bloomberg era NYC---i.e. when crime was really, really down, and really couldn't go down much further, and NYC was one of the safest cities in the country (not kidding, the crime stats bore this out)----even THEN Morningside Park was a nogo most of the time. It was just bad news. So I am unsurprised this occurred there in NYC in the de Blasio era.

    Morningside Park is basically the divide between the Columbia/Barnard side and a nasty part of Harlem just below 125th St. Columbia/Barnard was built on a natural hill, and Morningside Park is a sloped downhill park that rolls right into the ghetto.

    Barnard is also all-girls feminazi school, so it has large share of militant manhaters and ditzy free spirit lefty girls, both of whom laugh off warnings about "bad" neighborhoods. I'm guessing this musician chick was one of the latter group.

    If you're ever on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and are touring the campuses and the "fun" part of Harlem (e.g. 125th St. during a well-policed event), avoid going South of of 125th that isn't directly above Columbia/Barnard, and avoid going East of the Columbia/Barnard campus. If you must explore more, go to the west, where you have the Hudson River and much-safer Riverside Park, although these days it, too, is getting dicier..

    I don't blame this girl at all, not even though she had green hair and probably thought that Donald Trump was icky. No one deserves to die just for that. Back in the day, everyone at Columbia was instructed on day 1 to never, ever go into Morningside Park. In recent years, the park was thought to be safer (only 1 murder in this district so far this year before this one) so the students no longer received these instructions. She wasn't doing anything that was thought to be particularly dangerous or stupid.

    Recently, robberies in the park have been ticking up - apparently it was a fad among the middle school students of the neighborhood, like the knock out game has been in other times and places. I guess word got out that you could do this with little risk of having to face any consequences. Ghetto teens are rational (if amoral) actors and there is a tremendous grapevine as to what is and is not OK to do, and recently mugging people in Morningside Park moved onto the OK side. An easy way to make some pocket money, little risk of being caught - what's not to like? The NYC police under De Blasio did not see this as any cause for great alarm and these robberies have been going on all year now - dozens of them, though none had turned to murder up until now. Sure they were a nuisance but not as bad as the threat of white supremacy or something truly dangerous. Apparently it did not occur to them that it was only a matter of time before one of the robberies went bad. This is classic "broken windows" policing but that's apparently out of fashion or racis' or something.

    I don't blame that poor girl. I do blame De Blasio and the other adults who should have known better.

    Does Columbia Barnard warn its students about the dangerous neighborhood? Or does Columbia cling to the liberal fantasy that black neighborhoods are not dangerous? Does anyone know? The victim is first year from Virginia. I assume Barnard hides black Harlem crime in its promotional materials.

    Fun fact. General President Eisenhower was president of Columbia Barnard in the late 1940s.
    He took one look at the neighborhood and the location of his faculty house and bought handguns for himself and his wife. They carried whenever they left the house.

    Pinskey and Levine weep for the black boys who murdered a highly intelligent young White musician.

    I've mentioned before that last May my daughter, then a sophomore at UCLA, was brutally attacked and seriously injured by her then roommate. The attack involved the assailant throwing heavy blunt objects at her, knocking her to the floor multiple times, tearing apart her property, etc. The result was an injured hand and broken finger, bruises all over our daughter's body, etc., all carefully documented in medical reports, photos, and X-rays.

    Our daughter was on the phone with UCPD Dispatch through most of the attack.

    The cops have passed on the evidence to the City Attorney and made clear to us that of course our daughter did not break any law: the cops did warn us that the City Attorney normally deep-sixes battery cases where one UCLA student assaults another.

    UCLA, however, is accusing our daughter of serious crimes, despite the police report to the contrary: specifically of lying to the police (the police are not claiming that!) and of assaulting the assailant. The University officials have no evidence and do not pretend to have any: their argument, for example, is that our daughter held the assailant's sleeves to try to halt the attack, and that our daughter thereby assaulted the attacker! (California law, going back to 1872, explicitly defines self-defense as lawful, and holding an assailant's sleeves to try to stop the attack is a rather minimal form of self-defense.)

    What UCLA has made clear is that they want both our daughter and the assailant to simply apologize. That one student initiated and carried out the assault and seriously injured our daughter does not really matter. (Our daughter was in the process of moving out of the room because I had figured out that the roommate was criminally unbalanced,)

    Who did what to whom is irrelevant.

    All that matters is that you must mouth appropriately meaningless words of repentance even if you did nothing wrong and were actually the victim of the attack.

    The campus paper has run a detailed exposé followed by an editorial on the matter. A former member of the Board of Regents even wrote a letter-to-the -editor on the issue.

    Fortunately, our daughter survived, unlike Tessa Majors.

    But I do think it is only when something like this happens to your own daughter that you can fully realize that this is not a matter of a handful of vicious thugs. The problem is that we have given power and authority to member of a professional-managerial class who are not simply insane but outright evil. "Kafkaesque" is no longer adequate to describe the ruling professional-managerial class in our society.

    I'm not going into details about the assailant's identity, both because the "institutional betrayal" has harmed my daughter even more than the attack itself did, and also because the real public-policy issue here is how the University Administration is responding as a monolith in covering up and enabling violence on campus.

    It has really brought home to me what a lot of us have been arguing here in the abstract: the managerial-professional class as a whole in this country is not simply corrupt but truly insane. There are of course numerous individuals who are decent, but the general climate of expectations, the fear of speaking up for simple common sense and normal human decency, has become so great that those who are truly and insanely evil are able to silence the decent people.

There are lifers in prison with literally nothing left to lose - they've abolished capital punishment in NY, they are already never getting out, so basically there is nothing they can do to them if they kill another prisoner - sentence them to ANOTHER lifetime in prison?

    I'm a recovering journalist. The writing in this article bends over backwards to "humanize" the accused killer. It's a sympathetic portrait, with details designed to tweak emotions.

    "Skinny" = a way to infer he's frail and poor. Why use that word? Why not "thin?" Because "skinny" conjures images of a homeless puppy.

    The writer(s) also have the defendant biting his lip "nervously." As opposed to what? Happily? Why throw in that emotion unless you're trying to manipulate readers?

    This is Phase One. What will Phase Two be? It'll be when these same writers start digging up dirt on the deceased to put her at fault. She was blonde, Southern, and attractive so they're allowed to victim blame since she's The Enemy.

    I read the UCLA newspaper article with the hope of finding out what the motivation for the attack could have been but didn't find any, except this:


    She said her relationship with her former roommate initially deteriorated prior to the attack because her roommate was insensitive of [PhysicistDave's daughter's] constant migraines.
     
    Yet the confrontation/attack/whatever-it-was, was as she was moving out. If she'd had some problems getting along for any reason (it happens), you'd think the unnamed roommate would be glad to see her go; why attack? It doesn't make sense.

    Well, we tried to deal with it just internally with UCLA and UCPD for several months, with the results that I related. Only then did we go to the Daily Bruin (campus paper), so everything I mentioned here is now public. We’re going to go to metro, state, and national media now since the only thing that seems to affect UCLA is publicity — they do not even much care about lawsuits, since they are covered by the taxpayers of California.

    In fact, UCLA lost a major case in March 2018, Regents v. Rosen, in the CA Supreme Court: the high court specifically addressed the issue of colleges’ responsibility for student safety in dorms.

    The Supreme Court decision had no effect at all: I specifically brought it up with top administrators and they just lied, blatantly and bizarrely, about what the Court had said.

    We know a number of faculty and staff at UCLA: ,at the time of the attack, my cousin was chair of one of the largest departments on campus. Most are decent people, but all of them have the attitude that the administration is completey out of control and no one dares speak up about it.

    I doubt it can be changed by anything short of criminal prosecutions of top administrators.

    Hail also asked:

Our daughter had been instructed by the housing director not to engage the roommate, so she did not respond. The immediate cause of the assault seems to be that the illegal recording (which our daughter was unaware of at the time) was not working out as the roommate planned.

    The less proximate cause was that five days earlier the roommate had had her boyfriend spend the night, in violation of university rules and without our daughter’s consent. The noise due to the boyfriend (he snored loudly through the night) kept our daughter from sleeping and thereby worsened our daughter’s medical condition. When our daughter tired to discuss this issue, the roommate blew up.

    That event five days earlier was the first real sign of conflict, but the roommate had been going on for some time about her participation in criminal activities, her psychological problems, etc., so, yes, there was reason to think she was disturbed.

    So, I’m afraid there is something to your comment:

    Unless UCLA has introduced a new quota for the historically-underrepresented mentally unstable section of the population.

    The problem is the University actively encourages the students who are disturbed.

    Academia reflects society at large. Near as I can tell, throughout the 21st Century, there's been no top level official held meaningfully accountable for systematic wrong-doing. This, of course, is far from limited to political elites. There's a total lack of accountability, from top to bottom. Until this changes, nothing will change. And unless this changes, everything will change.

    And people are waking up they stamp their feet and refuse to tolerate unacceptable political outcomes: and the people recognize that certain policies will never change, no matter who they elect or what they want.

    So, if everything were to go up in flames and their perch were to slip, I wonder how many people will defend our current elites: or would mourn their demise?

    Their profession (or at least hobby) was armed robbery and a knife was the tool of their trade. People who are truckers sometimes kill pedestrians but this doesn't make them professional murderers. Yes, once you have actually killed someone the picture changes but their goal that day was cash and phones, not blood. The law punishes armed robbers severely but less severely than murderers and for good reason.

    The armed robbers mantra (whether expressly stated or not) is "Your money or your life." If you choose not to give them your money, that is what is at stake. Everyone in the ghetto knows this. It's possible that Tessa was not clear on the rules of the game.

    Under New York State law (and that of most states) murder during the course of a robbery is murder in the second degree and may be murder in the first degree, depending on circumstances. Both are Class A-1 felonies under state law, and can carry long sentences.

    I’m not going into details about the assailant’s identity, both because the “institutional betrayal” has harmed my daughter even more than the attack itself did, and also because the real public-policy issue here is how the University Administration is responding as a monolith in covering up and enabling violence on campus.

    It has really brought home to me what a lot of us have been arguing here in the abstract: the managerial-professional class as a whole in this country is not simply corrupt but truly insane. There are of course numerous individuals who are decent, but the general climate of expectations, the fear of speaking up for simple common sense and normal human decency, has become so great that those who are truly and insanely evil are able to silence the decent people.

    It took the Central Park 5 guys up to 13 years to get out of prison. Sure they’re millionaires now (at least until they blow all the $) but they lost 13 years of the prime of their lives (not to mention the risk of getting shanked at some point during those 13 years – prison is even less safe than the ghetto. There are lifers in prison with literally nothing left to lose – they’ve abolished capital punishment in NY, they are already never getting out, so basically there is nothing they can do to them if they kill another prisoner – sentence them to ANOTHER lifetime in prison?

    I've mentioned before that last May my daughter, then a sophomore at UCLA, was brutally attacked and seriously injured by her then roommate. The attack involved the assailant throwing heavy blunt objects at her, knocking her to the floor multiple times, tearing apart her property, etc. The result was an injured hand and broken finger, bruises all over our daughter's body, etc., all carefully documented in medical reports, photos, and X-rays.

    Our daughter was on the phone with UCPD Dispatch through most of the attack.

    The cops have passed on the evidence to the City Attorney and made clear to us that of course our daughter did not break any law: the cops did warn us that the City Attorney normally deep-sixes battery cases where one UCLA student assaults another.

    UCLA, however, is accusing our daughter of serious crimes, despite the police report to the contrary: specifically of lying to the police (the police are not claiming that!) and of assaulting the assailant. The University officials have no evidence and do not pretend to have any: their argument, for example, is that our daughter held the assailant's sleeves to try to halt the attack, and that our daughter thereby assaulted the attacker! (California law, going back to 1872, explicitly defines self-defense as lawful, and holding an assailant's sleeves to try to stop the attack is a rather minimal form of self-defense.)

    What UCLA has made clear is that they want both our daughter and the assailant to simply apologize. That one student initiated and carried out the assault and seriously injured our daughter does not really matter. (Our daughter was in the process of moving out of the room because I had figured out that the roommate was criminally unbalanced,)

    Who did what to whom is irrelevant.

    All that matters is that you must mouth appropriately meaningless words of repentance even if you did nothing wrong and were actually the victim of the attack.

    The campus paper has run a detailed exposé followed by an editorial on the matter. A former member of the Board of Regents even wrote a letter-to-the -editor on the issue.

    Fortunately, our daughter survived, unlike Tessa Majors.

    But I do think it is only when something like this happens to your own daughter that you can fully realize that this is not a matter of a handful of vicious thugs. The problem is that we have given power and authority to member of a professional-managerial class who are not simply insane but outright evil. "Kafkaesque" is no longer adequate to describe the ruling professional-managerial class in our society.

    I’m truly sorry to hear of your daughter’s experience, PhysicistDave. I hope that, with guidance, she will shake off the worst of the after-effects as she goes through the years and not have her self-confidence impacted. As the daughter of a college senior, I read your account with horror.

    PiltdownBrother-in-Law used to teach at UCLA, and I do remember him saying (though this was a couple of decades ago) that UCLA, in particular, had a very sclerotic and unimaginative bureaucracy, even in comparison with other parts of the U.Cal system.

    My daughter is at a similar sized university in the Northeast, and there, too, there is an enormous bureaucratic superstructure, evidenced by the numerous bland, corporatized “your student’s welfare is our closest concern” type emails we get from various functionaries with comfortable sinecures and intricate job titles.

    Fighting back unfortunately is what got her killed. If she had just given them her stuff, she probably would have been fine. The kids went to the park to rob people, not to kill them. These kids were small but there were 3 of them and they were armed so taking them on was not a good idea. The #2 choice after giving them your stuff was to try to run away. Staying and fighting was a really stupid idea, unfortunately.

    In one of his parole hearings, Walter Moseley, serial rapist, kidnapper, armed robber, and killer of Kitty Genovese, explained that he was the real victim of his crimes, because, “For a victim outside, it’s a one-time or one-hour or one-minute affair, but for the person who’s caught, it’s forever.”

    Her father is a professor, good chance she absorbed it at home. She fought back, so I give her credit for that
     
    Her father is a professor of English at James Madison University, and from an old Tennessee family, the nephew of Johnny Majors, once a well-known college football coach. Unlike many professors of English, he's actually published about half-a-dozen novels. Their subject matter, old Southern families, Christian dating, and so on, don't exactly scream "free-spirit lefty" or even that he is from what is now the mainstream of English professors, the Derrida/Foucault/Lacan inspired school of pedagogy.

    Blaming the victim of a bunch of young Harlem thugs, simply because she was a first-semester freshman at one of the Seven Sisters schools, is speculative—at best.

    The father’s Twitter was found and he deactivated it a day or so ago. Best I can’t tell he wasn’t harassed but he did get many condolences.

    He is quite liberal and vehemently anti-Trump. I can’t see his replies but it appears he engaged with some of the loonier realms of The Resistance. His deceased daughter attended the Woman’s March in DC after Trump’s Inauguration.

    The feminazis vilify White fraternity men. But back when campuses first became unsafe it was White fraternities who started the campus escort services.

    3 black men are almost always a robbery team, on foot or in a car.

    "Roosevelt Davis"

    Solid, old school African-American name.

    Most here acknowledgement of HBD. Most here enjoy pointing out the ridiculousness of the Left ignoring HBD or worse, blaming whitey for African American problem. But at times its worth remembering that the majority of African Americans are law abiding citizens who work, pay taxes etc. The model we should bear in mind is the father in Friday. And those folks, the decent ones, suffer when their children or wards go astray, too.

    Had Roosevelt and Shajyuaz been somewhat functional guardians the thug would have been home having dinner instead of roaming the park with his hyena pack members killing a White girl.

    Those boys from PS 180 have been marauding around the park late afternoon and evening for months robbing and attacking.

    Did your parents allow you to arrive home from school at 9,10 pm? Did you let your children maraud around town with a pack of robbers after school and not get home time 9,10,or later at night?

    Somewhat functional guardians would have their ward home for dinner at the time he and his pack were killing the girl. Some reports say the attack happened at 5/30, others at 7; dinner time in a normal household of any race religion or finances.

    The kids probably spent their robbery money on pizza and Macdonalds instead of going home for dinner every night.

    Wrong.  If not a majority, a large fraction of African Americans have criminal family members and support soft-on-crime policies for their own and crime-as-a-civil-right against Whitey.  Some 1/4 of black males have a felony record.

    Hey, the 5-minute edit window is working on isteve again!

    I believe it’s 1/3 black men have felony records. Genetics are genetics. Ask any criminal attorney. Criminals beget criminals who beget criminals.

    That's the reason to hold all juvenile felons until age 21 unless they consent to sterilization after they turn 18.

    Cuomo made it illegal to release mugshots in New York, because it confirms to the general public which race commits the majority of violent crimes.

    His photo hasn’t been released because he’s a minor and he is still presumed innocent until proven guilty for the death of this young lady.

    I am of course sorry for the girl but if she was a white working class secretary from what was once the industrial midwest whose father was unemployed by Bain Capital would she be getting this kind of attention? This is not supposed to happen to Barnard students from higher class Anglo families. huh?

    No, she would not have received the same attention.

    Whites on the hilltop don’t give a damn about the white amoebas on the bottom.

    Of course, as you’re now discovering, iwannaberich whites in the middle absolutely hate seeing this pointed out.

    The felons were caught.
