JFC! What a psycho. I frankly have nothing else to add to this.

I'd say to throw the book at her but she would enjoy it too much.

Worst. art installation. evar.

Long ago and far away when the the web was new, I built a site for the "dungeon" a friend worked for - the kind of place that advertises with a photo of a very high stiletto heel pressing down on a scrotum.

If this lady stopped professing art and moved to their city, I'm sure there would be men lined up wanting to throw god-only-knows how much money at her for even half what she did.

But you can't give it to folks who don't want it, not even for free.

Wow, looks like I missed the opportunity to take some seriously interesting Five College Consortium classes when I was living in the valley...

At least she didn't do something horrifying like make her grade freshmen essays.
 
2021-10-18 8:38:39 AM  
This is a horrific story.  My only question is why the charges specify that the victim was over 60 years old.  I mean-- yeah, don't terrorize old people. I get that.  But, is this common in assault charges?

It was a Performance Art piece.

Geez, you'd think an Art Professor would be happy to participate in a colleagues artistic vision and not just whine about "trauma" and "serious injuries."

Unless... it's a meta performance art piece and the judge is in on it.

When Savoy let her in, Hachiyanagi attacked her, bludgeoning her with a rock, a fire poker and pruning shears, all the while taunting her in a four-hour torture session until the victim finally managed to convince her to summon help, according to Thomas.

And then what?  She turned herself in?  She hid in the bushes?  What kind of twisted mind does something like this, and then calls for help?  No wonder the victim is traumatized--she called her over to her house as a friend.

When somebody tells you that crazy people can't function well enough to hold good jobs, point to something like this.  How did this woman go so long without killing someone?

Did she sew her butthole closed and kept feeding her, and feeding her, and feeding her?

I remember when this happened. It was almost as insane as the diaper wearing astronaut's cross country drive.

the hell is all those "...over 60" charges?
 
2021-10-18 8:49:53 AM  
Yeah, this is insane. Scary too because I went to a different one of the Five Colleges. Smith students and faculty are supposed to be the crazy ones, not Mount Holyoke.

I'm assuming that you and I have access to the same internet, yet somehow your experience with it seems to be very different from mine.

When I was working on my PhD (buffs nails on shirt), I ran into a colleague who was finishing up his. He was all togged up in a nice suit, and I asked why.

"Oh, I'm defending my dissertation today," he sez.

"Damn," sez me, "That's great! I didn't even know you were on the job market."

"Oh no," he clarifies. "I'm not going into academia. Everyone in academia has a personality disorder."

Fair nuff.

I suppose you answered "I've worked in the private sector. They expect results."

I dunno about personality disorder, but academics who've never worked in the private sector are in a weird little world of their own. I had the fortune to attend a university that recruited maybe half their profs from the private sector and they were worlds apart from the pure academics. It was a little fun going from one prof who was all "education is a virtue of its own" to the next who'd be "here's how to ensure you can make your boss and your clients happy"

Like child abuse being a separate crime the over 60 are also a vulnerable population. It'll affect sentencing.

For someone whose privacy was invaded and was subjected to torture, she sure seemed to be thoughtful about it
"This is a definition of torture. For four hours I experienced literal torture of body and of mind, not knowing if I would survive the next minute-yet needing to find some way to save my life," Savoy told the court. "The emotional, physical, financial, and professional impacts of this crime have been huge and they continue. Now the defendant's violation of me is becoming part of a public persona that I did not choose. She has invaded my privacy, my career, my life."

This was FARKed last year, and, being too lazy to re-Google it,
but, my recollection was it was some weird unrequited love/obsessive too off the wall for
"oooh, that's my fetish".

I mainly just remember the "rock, poker, scissors jokes" from last year.

The I can't have you, so I have to kill you, or torture you to make you
pay attention to me bug nut crayzineess that only makes sense in her own mind.

That sounds like the beginning of a personal injury lawsuit.  or she's had a lot of therapy.

I was quite curious as well. Shrooms? Psychotic break? Scorned lover? There's no excuse but there's gotta be an explanation.

Maybe there's something in the comments explaining why.

I've worked in higher education for almost 24 years now, so I know they're a little odd.   I've never met one that was just nuts, though...

labman: Why did she do this?  It just seems so weird.


Unrequited love.

From another website:

"...Hachiyanagi showed up at the victim's home unannounced late at night and lurked in the shadows until Savoy saw something and asked who it was.

Hachiyanagi then reportedly revealed herself and said she wanted to talk about her feelings. But when Savoy invited her inside and turned her back to Hachiyanagi, the defendant unleashed a vicious attack while telling the victim she had loved her for years and she should have known that."

Victim impact statement. It's part of the whole deal. She probably had help with it.

Poor woman. Christmas has a shiatload of reminders when it's coming up, that can't be good for flashbacks and shiat.

Article fails to note whether the art professor cranked up a radio station playing all Christmas music to drown out the screams...

/surely no one could be THAT sick.
