New update in the Temple University student assault case: NBC Philadelphia reports, “Philadelphia Police said a 15-yr-old girl has been arrested Tuesday and is expected to be charged with aggravated assault for allegedly hitting a 19-year-old Temple University student in the face with the brick, nearly knocking her teeth out. Four other teens, a 17-year-old, two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old, have also been taken into custody related to the assault. Detectives say these teens may also be arrested soon.
The arrest came four days after the unprovoked brick attack. The 19-year-old woman, was walking with her 20-year-old boyfriend around 6 p.m. on Friday evening when she says a group of girls and boys began taunting and touching them. When they pushed back, the girls allegedly started swinging. “My boyfriend pushed the girl away from me that hit me in the face and then the girl’s sister came at me with a brick,” said the victim, who asked that her identity not be shared.
What a shame this young lady withholds her identity as the victim, undoubtedly due to fear. We’ve come to a point in America where victims continue to live in fear for retribution attacks. Her boyfriend was interviewed, but he asked that his face not be shown on camera.
Some may ask why we’re following this case? The point is simple: trend analysis. Police say there were two other attacks that took place within minutes of the brick attack. But isn’t it interesting the media won’t report the race of victim? Again I have to ask, why? If this were black-on-black violence, does no one care? But because the victims were white, it doesn’t fit the narrative of the Left. We never stopped hearing about the “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman.
Another Temple student, a 20-year-old junior, said she was walking down her street when she was punched by a several girls, just 15 minutes before the brick attack. Capt. Frank Banford, commanding officer of Philadelphia Police’s Central Detective Division, said “the girls are also responsible for a third attack in which they allegedly assaulted another woman who is a Temple University student.
How does the academic mind work? Temple spokesman Ray Betznger said the university has no immediate plans to review its notification procedures. He says that could come at the end of the semester when officials typically review all university procedures.
Hate to say it, but Temple University may just need to get ready for the deluge of lawsuits that I am quite sure are coming. And they had best not wait until the end of the semester.
