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.

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.

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.

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.

You're right about that detail. It didn't occur on their campus. It happened in a neighborhood (apt complex?) full of UT students. So now there's a news story about a hate crime/racially motivated attack and there's a university that wants to get ahead of the bad PR due to the recent history of these sorts of incidents.

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.

I know that a lot of schools prefer to police themselves internally. The schools pretend it's a service they offer to students but it's really aimed at reducing the number of police reports.

Students call security to report a crime and it's suggested to them that it will end badly if they let the local PD in.

Every year there are stories of rape victims that accuse the school of siding with the rapists and destroying their criminal case.

Turns out that UT administration already commented to the local news:

"Austin Police are investigating the allegations about an incident off campus and we are anxious to learn the results," said Gregory J. Vincent, Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement at UT. "The dean of students and our campus climate response team, which coordinates the university's' response to bias incidents, is actively reviewing these allegations and also prepared to work with Austin Police on their investigation." The University of Texas Police Department said they were aware of the situation and are working with APD on the case.

So their response is less of a non-story than it already was.

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.


When I we a student there was an anti-gay slur written on someone's white board and the first thing the school did was call in the FBI to investigate.  This was a week into freshman year, and the "victim" was a freshman girl.  The real victims were really the students on the list she provided to the FBI who then interrogated them.  Then she admitted she had done it herself, and she got pulled out of school and put into a mental institution.  It probably would have been less embarrassing for everyone if the campus police had looked into it first.

BrassArt: Remember Oberlin...


Oberlin found the two involved, but since they were "students", they are protected by federal privacy laws. They probably stuck out like a sore thumb in a town of 4000. I'm sure the distraction was checking the redneck towns in the surrounding countryside for roadtrip bubbas.

Austin on the other hand is huge and suffers from condo overload, unrecognizable from 10 years ago. Sounds like terrorists with bombs are roaming. Unlike the rednecks in pickup trucks that would throw half-full beer cans at students on bicycles until Texas got some drinking and driving laws a few years back.

Since the professional TexasRacists™ are all in the Legislature cooking up voter IDs, police should first check who of them hasn't left town.

Reminds me of a local school here which had a bleach balloon attack, idiot kids would run around pelting other frat shirts ruining them. It wasn't campus police but the local PD which investigated and found two idiots doing it, they plead down to something (I think original charge was attempt. to do great bodily harm) to aggravated battery. College kids in general are stupid as hell, why the FBI or what not needs to be involved who knows, but im willing to bet NOT just minorities are targeted here, but the media loves to play that scenario.

/funny thing is it was on some bible college campus, those kids are frankly nuts - they are not allowed to smoke or drink on campus but go ape shiat at the local college bar where stupidity runs its highest real quick.

Kind Sir or Madaam;

The beginning of a sentence should be capitalized.  Your attempt at using an ellipsis is both poorly formatted, and misused.   They are used to create a cliff hanger or intrigue the reader.  You have used a double-space between the words learn and anything, which is poor grammar as well.  One question mark will suffice in most sentence structures.  It's as if you aren't educated that well.

Sherman also speculates that the purpose of the bleach bombs may be to target students of color with a chemical normally used to "whiten" clothes.

This reminds me of literature classes in high school and college where the teacher/prof required students to write essay upon essay analyzing symbolism that simply wasn't there.

No, the person(s) behind this are most likely not doing it because bleach turns things white.  They're most likely doing it because bleach is cheap, easily-available and will readily ruin most clothing it comes in undiluted contact with.  But mostly because it's cheap.

Here's a nice little nugget for those who are still doubting UT's pervasive racism:

UT's Greek community, specifically member organizations of the Inter-Fraternity Council and University Panhellenic Council, has recently drawn sharp criticism for racially-themed parties at which sorority and fraternity members and their guests -- who, for the most part, are white -- dress up in stereotypical clothing associated with a minority group. The local chapters of Tri Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha have recently apologized for a fiesta-themed party where two party attendees wore shirts that read "Illegal" and "Border Patrol."

And according to older reports, these bleach attacks are an ongoing thing, going back into 2012 and earlier still.  So, again...

Unlike this gem. What an insightful comment. You're contribution to the discussion has truly elevated the discourse. Or were you going for funny? It's hard to tell due to the lack of humor or a point. I bet your lips move when you read. Well, in 30 or 40 more minutes, you'll see where I admit my mistake. I know, real Americans never make/admit errors.

I'm curious why people rush in to defend this or deny racial motivation. Like it's so shocking that a couple of teenagers, that were King shiat in their little redneck Texas town, arrived in Austin, saw black people for the first time, and reacted poorly.

GoldSpider: Why does anybody feel they need an official response from the UT administration?

West Campus is home to more than 50 Greek organizations, more than 12 co-ops, organized by the Inter-Cooperative Council (ICC)

, and many other student organizations.  (Wikipedia)

It's not an official part of campus but there's enough of a school presence there that if there is a known safety issue, it would be prudent to let the students know about it. If it were just student housing somewhere off campus, it'd be a stretch to expect the school to say anything but for all practical purposes west campus appears to be part of the school even if technically it isn't.

Regardless of if the school should be involved or not, what kind of person throws bleach balloons?
 
2013-08-25 10:48:36 AM  

PainfulItching: 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.


Bleach destroys evidence.

Truly, I believe that hate crimes are evil (crime in general is horrible, but hate crimes take it that much further) and should be specially prosecuted.

From the link within TFA about the previous incidents.:

At least four minority students at the University of Texas, Austin say they have been victims of a "bleach bomb" attack while walking near campus, but none of them filed police reports after the incidents, authorities said.

Police got involved when they heard "through the grapevine" that Asian and African-American students had spoken out on social media about the bleach incidents, which happened between June and September.

"The victims need to make a report so we can either assist [Austin Police] if it was off campus or work on it ourselves if it was on campus...  "We need facts to go on."


Sounds legit.

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.


Yeah.  I don't want administrators investigating things like this.  That's the job of the police.  The school is liable to jump on the first promising suspect without actually figuring out if they're guilty or not.

Sweaty Dynamite: 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.


Except it supposedly wasn't water.

mesmer242: Turns out that UT administration already commented to the local news:

"Austin Police are investigating the allegations about an incident off campus and we are anxious to learn the results," said Gregory J. Vincent, Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement at UT. "The dean of students and our campus climate response team, which coordinates the university's' response to bias incidents, is actively reviewing these allegations and also prepared to work with Austin Police on their investigation." The University of Texas Police Department said they were aware of the situation and are working with APD on the case.

http://www.kxan.com/news/local/austin/police-bleach-balloon-thrown -at- person-in-west-campus

So their response is less of a non-story than it already was.


So it's just people banging the discrimination drum.  No surprise.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Because.....


You'd be aware that it's pretty common for universities and colleges to address crimes that are occurring in and around their campuses. They send notices, step up on-campus patrols, work with the students to educate them on how to protect themselves or spot shady activity etc. etc. etc. Applies to assaults, burglaries, pretty much anything that looks like a rash of related or spree crimes whether it's on the campus or not.

Infernalist: Because of the three, one is most known for making things whiter 'and' has the nice side effect of destroying dna.


And they used balloons. Balloons are often made from rubber, which comes from trees which were shipped from Brazil to Europe by Henry Wickham. Wickham was of British descent. The British were the second largest transporters of slaves over the Atlantic, the Atlantic Ocean just happens to be the second largest ocean. Considering that we now have had "second" pop up three times we can deduce that there were three assailants.

You are reading way too much into it. If it is some racist who is throwing bleach balloons at non-whites then I'll agree that bleach was very likely picked because it is used to make things white (both for the skin and to ruin clothing). But destroy DNA? No one would have picked bleach for that purpose.

I'm willing to bet the farm that these bleaching incidents are manufactured by uber-left leaning students. Like Oberlin, Tawana Brawley, et al, it'll be another "community organizer" with an "end justifies the means" mentality. "We know racism is there, and if we can't prove it, we'll fake it."

skozlaw: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Because.....

You'd be aware that it's pretty common for universities and colleges to address crimes that are occurring in and around their campuses. They send notices, step up on-campus patrols, work with the students to educate them on how to protect themselves or spot shady activity etc. etc. etc. Applies to assaults, burglaries, pretty much anything that looks like a rash of related or spree crimes whether it's on the campus or not.


And you feel that  4 water balloons is enough to warrant that level of reaction from the  administration?  You think a few water balloons warrant notices?  Patrols!?  A student balloon awareness club? This barely warrants attention from legitimate police, it's a petty crime.  This is NOWHERE near the level of criminal activity that might require any public action from the administration, and you're ridiculous for claiming otherwise.

Abox: Infernalist: Because, in Texas, black people have to manufacture proof of racism.  LOL

csb:  When I lived in Texas  some years ago I was trying to buy a specific model of a thing and called a store across town to confirm they had exactly what I needed in stock.  It was going to be a PITA trafficky drive and I didn't want to waste my time AGAIN driving to a place just to be told they didn't have it.  I made them confirm in no uncertain terms that they had the exact numbered model of what I needed.  So I get there and wouldn't you know it, they don't have the thing they PROMISED they had...they just tried to sell me something similar.  So I get back to work and I'm fuming and pissed off and I'm ranting about this to the black security manager (I'm white) and he asks me why I think this happened.  I tell him because society sucks and people are liars and don't give a shiat about anyone and anything.  He then told me he always chalked stuff like that up to racism.  I know it sounds corny but he actually said my experience was making him think that not everything he called racism was actually racism.


Funny after 9/11 Muslims got the heat of the racism war, I couldn't go through an airport without eyes glaring at me. To me 9/11 just showed how ignorant society is as a hole, I am not al quacka - black people were the first to tell me "now you know how it feels to be black". Bullshiat.. what black person rammed hijacked planes into a building killing 5,000 people? None, specifically a religious black person? None. Now I responded kindly to the person who said this to me "What black person in the past 30 years has endured what most ARAB looking people deal with every single day?" he spouted rodney king, I said ok good point - one person, granted I told him i'd give him 50, try to compare that to anyone who looks arab - not sure how many arabs are in the US but I would say a few million?.

Most of it isn't racist, its just people uneducated or just plain stupid - or they have never really SPOKE to a muslim so they have a natural FEAR just like the American's did when the Soviet union was threatening war (look up the 50s and 60s).

Sweaty Dynamite: 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.

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.


Since the article says nothing about who is throwing the bleach, why are you so sure it's racism?  There's a pretty well established recent history of liberal college students "raising awareness" by performing hate crimes. Nothing in the article says they have a description of the thrower.

BTW... what's your opinion of the recent murders committed by people outraged by the Zimmerman verdict? Do you think that the people who hyped that case into a racist incident should feel deep shame or soul-crushing shame?

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 story (like almost all others of its kind) is just the prequel to the followup tag you'll never see on Fark in a few weeks or a month when it's revealed this was all a hoax.

However, since the lefty media will barely cover the revelation of the hoax, scores of people will not only believe this really happened, they'll instantly believe the next fabricated account as well.

West Campus is outside the domain of the University of Texas.  It may or may not be UT students as there are plenty of folks living/working/visiting that area who have no association with the university itself.  The Austin police department should be investigating it (and they are) and the University should warn students if they have not done so already.  I remember volunteering for a service back in the 90's where 2+ volunteers would escort people from the central library on campus to their apartment in West Campus.  There was always a threat of rape/mugging.

My only other problem with the article is the victim's assumption that the University should be progressive.  People come there to learn and improve, not to practice progressivism.  Racist behavior is abhorrent (and the balloon throwers should be arrested and face charges) but there should be no expectation that everyone on campus should share in your political beliefs.

Interesting, in a thread where there is no evidence of racial animus, you invent a conspiracy that it's really a racist attack. You then go on a rant about how awful conservatives are, thump people with a holier than thou attitude concerning race, and all the time you no facts to back up your argument.

Considering last week a person was shot in cold blood due to the racism stoked by the people calling for the conviction of George Zimmerman. I know it's not easy to answer, no one ever wants to admit they're a moron that is farking up the world.

I think the media was extremely irresponsible with how they went about reporting the Zimmerman case but I think they are irresponsible like... all the time.

If innocent peoples got killed, beaten or even harassed over the verdict then the perps are sh*theads. Sh*t heads are sh*t heads.

And to quell any further questions as to my white guilt librul bias... If black people or any other race go around being bigoted shiat heads... well they're bigoted sh*t heads and I have as much distaste for their racism as I do when white people do it.

I know by not confirming your bias of ME you lost all ground in the argument. For that I am truly sorry.

Eponymous: JakeStone: Fark it.  I'm done with Texas.

Anyone need a C# developer in the San Francisco area?  EIP.

Based on your comment and what I know about Texas, I kind of doubt you will be missed much.


Yeah, there's not much call for working and in use brain cells out in these parts.

My guess is narcissistic personality disorder.

In addition to these symptoms, the person may display arrogance, show superiority, and seek power.[8] The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to the traits of individuals with strong self-esteem and confidence; differentiation occurs when the underlying psychological structures of these traits are considered pathological. Narcissists have such an elevated sense of self-worth that they value themselves as inherently better than others, when in reality they have a fragile self-esteem, cannot handle criticism, and will often try to compensate for this inner fragility by belittling or disparaging others in an attempt to validate their own self-worth. It is this tendency that is characteristic of narcissism as opposed to other psychological conditions affecting level of self-worth.[9]
You should look into that, maybe you can get some help.

Uh huh... they're as bad as the people who make non-racist incidents into racist incidents and ratcheting up racial tension though... right?

Sorta like a numbskull talking about how awful it is that racists are throwing bleach at minorities all the while not knowing who or why is doing the supposed bleach throwing.

But hey, it's conservatives fault for all racist attacks by white people but you and your ilk, as blameless as an innocent babe when it comes to minorities attacking white folks.

Oh, and I like your edgy and controversial "I hate people who bad things" position. It stands in stark contrast to your earlier position that you hate people who are "subtle" in encouraging things that only you can see and hear.

See... the thing is I could be a complete asshole. I could be an utter moron. I could be a puppy kicking pervert... yet I would STILL win the argument because I am not the one arguing in defense of racism.

Racism is indefensible. If you are arguing in favor of racism then you are arguing the wrong side and have lost before you begun.

It's been nice chattin' with ya lads. Have a pleasant evening.

No, I shall win because I'm not arguing in favor of the mass genocide of the entire world.

Hint: No one argued in favor of racism.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: here to help: BraveNewCheneyWorld: I'll just leave this here.

Perhaps it's because racism, homophobia, tinfoil hat conspiracies, violent and psychotic rants, extreme bible thumping, non stop reposting of hate literature and provably false "facts", etc, etc, etc gets god damned boring very quickly.

It's kind of funny, because no matter what, farklibs will always justify everything they and their peers do.  Did it ever occur to you that the unwavering belief that you're absolutely perfect in every action you take, might in fact be the sign of a mental illness?  Seriously, no matter what facts are thrown at you people, you somehow find some excuse to make yourselves 100% right.


Oh my. these "libtards" sound like about most of the human race. :D

Trolltastic headline there subby. Because this incredibly short on details article doesn't mention what the university is doing about this matter, you assume it's nothing. This despite the fact that the police are investigating it.

Here's the part I don't get. No matter the issue, be it racist attacks, rapes or whatever, if the university turns the matter over to the police, people biatch that they're doing nothing. If the university investigates the matter themselves, people biatch that they're covering it up and it should be a police matter. Make up your farking minds people because you can't have it both ways.

We have enough issues with trolls posting on this site, do we really need to green-light their headlines as well?

5 bleach bombings, and nobody has any clue who did the deeds.  My BS alarm was buzzing a bit here, so I did a bit of hunting  The first reports of 4 bleach bombs were from about a year ago.  Most of the articles that refer to the police involvement say that the police heard about the problem third hand and had to hunt for the person who was assaulted since nobody filed a complaint.  There seems to be no evidence of a bleach bomber or that bleach was dropped, but ample evidence of people complaining about a racism.  This also happened right around the same time as Fisher vs. University of Texas where Fisher argued that she was declined admission because she was white and the school had to make a non-white quota.  Sounds to me like there just as good of a chance that the victims were people trying to "raise awareness of racial issues" by creating a hoax as a white racist dropping bleach bombs.

Davis did contact the police and did turn in his clothes to them, so this is sounding a lot more like it really happened that the previous events, but it might be wise to remain skeptical until there is more information.

There is a lot of racism these days, both from whites and blacks.  I think that most of the responses I see here are a rush to judgement.

In other words, don't be so quick to jump to someone's defense just because of their skin color - that would be racist.

here to help: 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.


Impressive.   You lost one half point for 'rapscallions' and one full point each for the intentional misspelling of 'liberal' and 'word'.

Yeah, UT has a bit of a habit of dropping other investigations *cough*threatsagainstmygirlfriend*cough* in order to investigate incidents in West Campus, I'm calling bullshiat on the assertion that UT is "silent" on this matter.

UT doesn't give a flying fark about issues unless it would make them look bad.
