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.

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.

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.

Yes please: mesmer242: 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.

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.


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.

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?

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.

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?

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.


Of course you're right, that's why there's documented reports of them being thrown at dorm windows belonging to minority students.  Because they're trying to ruin the window with the bleach!

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

You'd be aware that it's pretty common for universities and colleges to address crimes that are occurring in and around their campuses.

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.

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."

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.

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?

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...

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.

"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.

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.
