I like how this article had to explicitly state the purpose of bleach for laundry applications.

nothing said of proportion of minority to non-minority students already at the school. there is a different weirdness if the school is 50/50, one has to really wonder WTF. if the school is almost completely non-minority then the offenders are the types that would burn down a For Sale house on their street if they saw a minority couple show up with the real estate agent. in this case it shouldn't take too much police background work to figure out most probable dooshbags.
 
2013-08-25 08:16:14 AM
Yes subby, because people in school administration should be taking over the role of the police just because an assault happens on their campus.  And if they don't, they obviously approve of the assault.

People wonder why I give the "subtle" racists such a hard time on here. Well here's your answer. Your innuendo jacks up the climate to embolden others who may not be quite as subtle as you to do asinine sh*t like this.

I'm sure in their minds it's "just a joke" and that us libtards need to get a "sense of humor".

I'm sure someone will come along and defend these precocious rapscallions against the over reactions and oppression of the librul "PC police". At the very least they will derail the thread ignoring the actual assaults and deny racism exists and how racist it is that black people can say the "n wurd" but white people can't or some other such nonsense.

Well, subby, West campus is not actually UT property and nobody knows for sure that the person doing it is a student. It's sort of the job of the police to investigate crimes. We had some hate crimes at my university (not UT, and not a school in Texas) when I was a student, and the local police and criminal justice system did a much better job of dealing with it than administrators.

This is a criminal matter. Even if there were something administration could do, it's standard practice to stay out of the way of a police investigation.

Yes, remember Oberlin. This has hoax written all over it. No witnesses other than the aggrieved, Not reported until later. In the original article is a picture of the most likely perp, Taylor Carr.

Oh FFS, this shiat doesn't need to be addressed in any manner by the administration.  Let the cops handle it, if they feel that it's in the public interest to make everyone aware of bleach water-balloons, they can do that.  That is their job, not the school administration's.

Similar reports surfaced last year. But according to the Austin American-Statesman: linked here


Austin police said only one attack was reported, and that case was suspended due to lack of evidence. A police official said that damaged evidence was requested but that the victim did not submit anything.


So no evidence produced so far. And Texas has the largest student population in the country. Not every college aged kid in Austin is a student either. Plus the source for the story. Bah. That Burnt Orange Report? Send your favorite conservative to that site and watch their head explode.

And I'm a lefty liberal, but if you've not been attacked by bleach, it's easy enough to fake. As far as I can tell, no one has even tweeted a pic of the clothing they were wearing at the time they were hit. You can't fail to produce evidence then claim racism when nothing is done.
 
2013-08-25 08:31:53 AM
Criminal matter?  Assault?  This pussy got hit with a water balloon by some assholes riding around campus. Seems that the only reason minorities were the "targets" is probably because the are the only ones that equate being hit with a water balloon to a farking hate crime and report it to police.  I would wager that there are similar or greater numbers of wet non-minorities walking around that campus that didn't feel the need to make a federal case out of it...literally.

prjindigo: Use of chemical weapons against a civilian populace is a war-crime.


Yeah, even though it's Austin it's still a UT, hard to rally up a protest. I saw protesters in Dallas the other day who took their opportunity to use the sidewalk on an overpass, but they didn't think about the fact that traffic below was doing 60 mph+ and couldn't read their three inch lettered signs.

Where are you getting silence? The October attacks were commented upon by administration. This attack happened 4 days ago, and there's no other information as of now. Do you want public comments by admin every time something happens involving a Texas student?

They should do all they can to catch the perpetrator of this crime.  There is no place in today's society for Hate Crimes - we need to bring light to these crimes and call them what they are.

Just like they are doing for that Australian baseball player or the WW2 vet who were victims of Hate Crimes.

Oh wait - Hate Crimes can't be perpetrated by minorities on whites.  My apologies.

Schools should never address or comment any crimes that occur on their campuses. Ever. Doing so often pollutes the police investigation, taints the future jury pool, and causes undue alarm in the community.

In fact, the press should keep quiet about crimes too. The police will let us know what we need to know.

Apparently, these attacks are taking place off campus. It's unclear if the attackers are even students. As noted, the administration has commented on prior attacks. What would you have them do at this point? Form a posse and ride?

I think the normal, meaning expected but meaningless, response would be for the school administration to come out a strongly worded letter condemning the bleach bombers blah, blah, blah, followed by comments on support for a diverse student boy an how it make the school stronger, blah, blah, blah . Then outside consultants would be hired at much cost (although money is not a problem for UT) . This will be followed by diversity and tolerance lectures for students, perhaps a few more ethnic studies courses offered, even a building named after civil rights leader, maybe separate Student unions base upon and decorated toward oppressed minorities cultures, open to all students of course, but set up to offer minority students a place to connect with their culture. The student body will do their part also with protests and petitions, perhaps demanding that bleach be banned from campus (even though the attacks took place off campus).

Meanwhile APD may or may not have caught the perpetrators.

Of course the perps may be swayed by the lectures on diversity and tolerance along with the courses on ethnic studies and not repeat their bleach bombing.

So did you read the Fark thread about the 13 year old white kid set on fire in a racial attack?

If anything serious ever happens at a college, you NEVER go to the school police.  Always straight to the real cops.

Then you have people like me that look at statistics that show that blacks murder whites at over twice the rate of whites murdering blacks.

Or, look at the fact that while whites are 78% of the population and commit about 50% of all murders while blacks are about 12% of the population and commit 48% of all murders.

What's really disturbing is the percentage of murders between the two races, combined, steadily rose across 28 years of a BJS study of data.
