the white woman who called the police on a napping black girl at yale has been doxxed

Last edited Wed May 9, 2018, 10:46 PM - Edit history (1)

her name is found on yale's facebook page, as well as buried deep in #yalewhileblack.

she appears to be a woman's right marcher too, which comes as a surprise to me.

Edit, her twitter account was just deleted at 10:30 pm ET, more on #yalewhileblack

Being for women's rights doesn't keep some women from being racists.

78. Much worse and bigger than even I had thought as little as 3 yrs ago.

I have a close friend who is like 3 minority groups herself who lives in a very wealthy city area surrounded by privileged, wealthy non POC progressives. I wont, cant use the W word, gets me way too much unwanted attention.

Anyway, she describes their behavour and attitudes to me over a period of time trying to show me that I dont have as much in common with them as I thought I did.

As a very far left liberal, not far left progressive, my basic purpose politically as well as my friends is civil rights. Rights of minorities. Rights of human beings. My pocketbook is important but NEVER as important as someone's right to life or ability to have basic human and civil rights.

It was shown to me that most of these people we were talking about did NOT value what I valued.


For instance someone should be able to sell a cigarette on a street corner and not be strangled to death, his right to life is more important than my right to a living wage. One of us is losing a right to more money, the other is losing a right to live.

hates crime legislation but calls the cops because a black student fell asleep in a common area of her dorm.

18. Doxxing people sucks.

She made a mistake. We don't know all the details about what happened and I'm sure she's hearing about it in any case. You can post in opposition to what she did - she doesn't need to be cyberstalked as well.

Doxxing people enables bullying and death threats and violates DU terms of service:

"Don't post anyone's private or personal information
Don't post private or personal information about any person (including public figures) even if that information is available elsewhere on the Internet."

Doxing is a thoroughly nasty practice that ruins lives and it's all the more revolting because it's usually engaged in with an air of virtuous moral superiority. Yuk.

176. Discuss what should be the penalty for siccing cops on innocent black people then,..

considering what has happened in recent times to 12-year-old Tamir Rice, to John Crawford and countless other unarmed, innocent black people who had the temerity to make a cowardly, racist uncomfortable with their presence and end up dead for it?

How many times do these cowards get to slink away undetected without any punishment for whatever humiliation, injury, jailing or even death of the innocent people they used the cops as a valet for their racism?

Laws to levy punishment against them is in order. What do you suggest? IMO doxxing, double x byw, will put a second thought in their heads before they make their racist call.

And I could give a shit if I never hear from you again either.

it might deter them from calling the cops every time they see a scary black person minding their own business??

Because the number of these incidents is increasing by the week...

Nevermind the fact that every time someone calls the cops over "Someone's Existing While Black!!" they are putting that person's life in grave danger...

67. It's increasingly being reported, maybe because more people are aware of it. And cell phone...

... videos on social media sites document this sort of racism.

There are many communities in the U.S.A. where it's still considered completely normal to call the police whenever "suspicious" black people are about.

I grew up in such a place but I didn't know it at the time because it's not something my parents ever did, and they've always been politically active in their support of civil rights. But I'll bet maybe 30% of the people in my 99% white"home town," the same sorts of people who voted for Trump, felt it their civic duty to protect their fellow white people by calling the police on any black person who looked out of place. And the police didn't treat everyone with equal respect. Any black person who talked back to them risked arrest and violence.

Also, there should be laws that levy consequences against racist cowards making calls to sic police on black people and other POCs because their presence makes them uncomfortable.

Are you forgetting already the Starbucks incident and the many incidents at Waffle Houseónot to mention the late Tamir Rice and John Crawford and on and on and on?

These were black men killed by police because of racist callers.

Doxxing is small potatoes IMO, they should be fined stiffly or jailed if their calls result in injustice, injury or death.

They shouldn't just be able to slink away undetected only to do it again at whim.

This woman is a lawyer ? Then certainly she must know what it is that LEOs do, and that does not include being called because you felt threatened by a Black woman, a graduate student, no less, sleeping ? Exactly how was this woman threatening her ? Was she snoring ? Talking in her sleep ?

What is happening to white people ?

Last week, two young Mohawks were taking a tour of a Colorado college, which they had driven seven hours to see, and arrived shortly after the official tour had begun. One white woman walked up to them and started harassing them because THEY didn't talk to HER when she started pressing questions upon them. "They were too quiet." And they had made the mistake of wearing black T-shirts (They were concert souvenirs). THEY made HER nervous, so what did she do ? Why she called 911 of course.

Is it in the water ? People, get a grip.

We've had people on DU argue a lot of that, and I read about the slavery argument and she was assigned that side of the argument - she didn't argue it by choice. That article is about how it's possible to argue for slavery just like it's possible to argue that women should be able to wear burqas if they choose, but in both cases that's wrong

She's an extreme free-speech type, which a lot of people here are. She is against Islamic women wearing head covering if they want, which I've read here. She opposed the concept of hate crimes calling it "thought policing" which I've read here.

The women were neighbors.
Campus security was called because the white woman walked into the common room and turned on the light which woke up the black woman sleeping there and an argument occurred. According to what the black woman said, the white one told her she wasn't supposed to sleep in the common room which I can understand having a rule like that. This is not some white woman happening on an unknown black woman and trying to cause problems for her, This is more of a suite mate argument.

As for what the woman's other views are, I don't have time to look at her posts.bim just talking about this one incident between the neighbors.

Or see the YGS RAs who have confirmed the victim's story this chick used the YPD as her racism valet before with a guy?

There's no mention of a rule about not sleeping in common areas, and the cops treated her as though the issue was not studying or sleeping in common areas, but that this woman thought the victim here was some homeless person who was not a student.

If it was just a spat, why all the long detention waiting for her ID to come back, or the condescending officer saying she only "felt" she had a right to be in the educational institution she's probably mortgaging her soul to pay for?

He's lucky she merely responded with "Continue. I hope this makes you feel powerful" rather than "I more than feel my student loans, officer. They pay your salary."

At the end of the second video, you hear them finally confirm the victim's identity. Fifth floor.

You ask why she wasn't in the 5th floor common area -- so did the female cop in the video, when it comes as explained there was no 5th floor common area.

You are looking for every reason to excuse this woman calling the race valets not once but twice when Yale itself has said that they have reprimanded the woman person who involved campus security and that the victim had every right to be where she was.

And the second incident has been documented and admitted to by Yale as well, that it was the same woman both times freaked out about people who happened to be black in her building.

249. She knew EXACTLY what she was doing when she got the cops involved. It's called racist intimidation

and it's the first thing racists threaten black people with when they can't get their way. It's even more disgusting because, as a Yale student (and an activist?) she KNEW that getting the cops involved could lead to an innocent woman dying over something super petty. Disgusting POS! F*ck her, I have zero pity for her at this point!

My dorm common area was open to anyone from 7 am to 10pm. They had a reception desk and would call girls down if they had a visitor if the desk was being manned. That is my perception of a late 80s common area so I thought of that openness, but I know others are more private these days. It would have been much worse if a stranger had made their way into a private common area.
At no point in this story were we told the 2 women were suite mates. You have to figure that out by watching the video.

I don't know that she had any books and papers at all since most papers are written on the computer.

The white woman turning on the light and waking up the black woman started this arguement but I think she had every right to use her own common room with the lights on. If someone wants to sleep it should be done in their own room if they don't want to be disturbed.

59. It's *obvious* that's exactly both what chick and police were thinking.

The officers treated her as though the issue was her right to be in the dorm room she had a key for, etc.

Even the "supervisor" who heard the white woman's story first. He's the one that got condescending when she said she had the right to be in the building, saying that it didn't matter if she "felt" she had the right to be in her own dorm room instead of be detained by four officers while they investigated her ID.

And they did not give her ID back, de facto detention, until the University had confirmed its validity.

There's no mention of any rules the victim allegedly "broke", by sleeping or studying in a common area. In our dorm that was common. Yes, you're correct in hearing the "supervisor" say that the white woman claimed they got into a verbal altercation after she found her asleep, but then he tells the victim that there *was* no altercation so there was no harassment, even by their prolonged and unnecessary detention.

At no time do any of the officers, besides the female cop, act like it's obvious she's a student, and her reasoning doesn't seem to come from the off-camera interview with the other person, but that she has the key to her room, her ID, and had left her study materials upstairs. She seems to be the only one who sees through the BS.

63. If you watch both videos of the incident, the

victim indicates that the white girl called the University police on a black male friend not that long ago. It sure looks like the white girl has called the police on black people at least twice. One call could be a mistake, two calls would indicate otherwise.

The victim indicated that the University had been notified of the white woman's behavior in the past. I am listening to the longer video with the police and the victim indicated that this was the second time that she has experienced problems with the white girl.

It would be interesting if the victim submitted an Open Records Request to find out how many phone calls the white woman has made to University Police.

135. So after asking several times for an answer as to how to better fight white supremecists

your big answer is to essentially let the police handle it after they kill somebody. Sorry, not good enough. Those same police pretty much stood back the entire time in Charlottesville and did nothing to intervene.

If you've forgotten already, in the aftermath of the Charlottesville riots the Nazis we're all full of bravado and claiming that they were going to start doing this everywhere. That all changed when they started getting doxxed.

http://wjla.com/news/nation-world/white-supremacists-from-charlottesville-rally-being-outed-on-social-media

They started getting fired from their jobs, they started getting shunned in their communities, they started getting ostracized socially. Today, they are in hiding, the alt right is practically non-existent, and they're even having trouble getting enough money to keep their website open.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/04/white-supremacist-website-stormfront-is-running-out-of-money.html

I'm not even going to sit here and try and tell you that it's not a tragedy when it happens to an innocent person. But ultimately, those people were cleared in the end and had their names restored. If I have to choose between that and allowing fascism and white supremacy to flourish and thrive under the guise of being anonymous, I'm afraid I'll have to choose the former. There's about 10 million victims of the Nazis and countless victims of lynchings and KKK terrorism in the United States that if I had to wager, I'd wager they'd see it my way.

89. What gets me in most of these cases are that the racists are so f**king dumb - (hello cellphones)

If you are dumb enough to act or speak in a racist manner while being videotaped, you should expect to be doxxed. If you don't expect to, I guess you have never watched the news or have no idea about cause and effect.

Does racist hate overtake rationality? Hello, you might end up on the news - all your neighbors will see you including some that might be unstable.

154. That's your opinion. I otoh am glad the Charlottesville racists were doxxed...

and glad that this woman's name was made public. She sicced cops twice on innocent black people in that dorm so it was no mistake.

There should be consequences to racists using police as their valets because the presence of black people make them uncomfortable.

I question the character of anyone who doesn't get that?

That has the potential of more Tamir Rices, John Crawfords and on and on and on. It's a roll of the dice as to whether you get a reasonable cop or a racist cop eager to shoot a black person.

She should have worked the situation as an adult with another adult who both live in that dorm. No cops were necessary, but having done it before, that was her way of ridding her presence of black people.

230. Fine.

As I've now stated several times. I don't really care what your opinion is. Those who doxxed the Charlottesville Nazis stopped a budding fascist movement in it's infancy before it could gain any traction and cause even more death. That's something that I KNOW FOR CERTAIN you will never do or ever even attempt to do, much less succeed at, while you're sitting comfortably in your home typing on your computer hiding in your self-created bubble of moral high ground.

Personally, I don't see anything moral about that. More intellectual and elitist snobbery backed up by weak and token activism that will never really accomplish much but at the end of the day will make you feel good about yourself which you can then brag about online to anybody that will listen.

The moral ones, the truly moral ones, are the ones who dedicated their time and energy to fighting these fascists that turned one city into a war zone and would have done the same to many others if they hadn't been stopped. I thank them for being true heroes, not you.

Have a nice day.

And where do you stand on protecting minorities from racism since you're so concerned about the innocent? Oh I forgot, call the police after one of them is dead and just hope they don't botch the case like they did with Trayvon Martin. I'm still waiting for you to come up with an idea on how to combat this that doesn't require a dead body.

Plus I can also tell you this, if I ever was mistakenly doxxed, the very first thing I would do is go on every social media account in existence and declare my innocence and explain why they have the wrong person. If I had to wager, I'd bet I'd could have it cleared up within a few days at the most.

And I would consider it time well spent, if, in the greater scheme of things, it caused a whole movement of racists to be driven underground. Yes, I would consider that worth it.

242. I wouldn't give a shit about the neo-Nazis

If they were doxxing me it WOULD NOT, I repeat, WOULD NOT be a case of mistaken identity. I oppose them with every blood fiber in my being, so if I was being doxxed by them it would be because I did something that got their attention and they found out about it and doxxed me. In which case I would not plead my innocence, I would confess my guilt, tell them to go fuck themselves, and state that I would do it again in heartbeat.

The hypothetical scenario you keep sounding the air raid siren over would be something in which I was accused of being or doing something I wasn't or I didn't, say for example, falsely being accused of being a neo-Nazi. In this case, it would be fairly easy for me to prove my innocence. First of all, if they started calling my job to get me fired, well, I work for a very enlightened company with good progressive values, and I have a good relationship with my supervisors. They would believe me if I told them that it was a case of mistaken identity and they would stand by me. Plus, they'd probably secretly be proud of me for being the progressive that I am.

Second, I have a long history of activism, including arrests on my record, for acts of civil disobedience for left wing causes, including one against California's prop 8, which made gay marriage illegal. It would be pretty easy for me to prove that I am not, in fact, a Nazi, and most of the people who know me would laugh at the idea, so I doubt I would lose many friends. I have more than 10,000 posts on DU, as well as facebook and other sites, all of which would show a strong commitment to progressive ideals and anti-racism.

I don't call the cops on people of color for merely being in a certain place, So I don't think I have to worry about being doxxed for that. In fact, I go out of my way to avoid calling the cops at all unless its absolutely necessary. In other words, yes, I do think it would be pretty easy for me to prove my innocence to those who matter. If it was Nazis, LOL. They can go to hell. No need to prove my innocence with them except to prove I wasn't one of them.

You keep sensationalizing this as if it's likely to happen at any moment. You do realize that your chances of it ever happening to you or somebody you know are virtually none to very, very very, very very very very very, small? And if it ever has happened to you, you are a member of a very, very very, very ,very, small community?

By contrast, what are the odds that any African American has at some point in their lives had the police called on them? Been singled out in a store by security? Been the victim of overt racism? Been assaulted for his race? Been marginalized at work?

Yet, you seem to think all of that is less important than the literally one in millions chance that you or anybody you know will ever be the victim of a mistaken doxxing.

That's just you trying to play up the victimhood angle you're so fond of.

I could just as easily say you are the selfish one for expecting minorities to tolerate organized racism by trying to take away one of the most effective tools for fighting it and punishing it because you want to focus on a few regrettable incidents (which I am not and have never made excuses for. Those that were responsible for that should be held accountable) and ignore the fact that doxxing racists works. You say I'm willing to tolerate collateral for my idea of justice. I say you're willing to tolerate far more collateral than I ever would just so you can hold everybody to your idea of "principled action." At least my way racism gets outed and exposed. Your way allows it to hide under anonymity and protection and get stronger, causing more and more collateral all the time.

The person just has to say they didnít intend it for harassment, or threatening and only to make others aware of the person for their own protection.

In other words, the intent part is extremely hard to prove in court. But cops would love to abuse it to silence those who call out racists. Itís a handy tool of oppression. Thankfully the ACLU would destroy it quickly in court.

253. That very scenario would make the law unconstitutional.

Courts look specifically to strike down vague and overly broad laws. When it comes to an enumerated right, like speech, the compelling governmental interest must be specific and clear and the law narrowly tailored to address that need.

This leads to another interesting discussion - what under the law is personally identifiable info.
I mean, if itís name, address, and phone number, then any phone book publisher should get the death penalty or something. But in a serious note, this is already public info and preventing someone from pointing it out is flat out unconstitutional. This law might have a chilling effect on otherwise normal behavior like identifying people in yearbook photos or in old photos taken of public events, which again, is death (strike down) in the courts.

I've helped family friends escape abusive spouses/boyfriends and it's hard to hide their location with the endless array of systems everywhere seeking to collect info. One abuser asked the front desk of a grocery store to replace a store card his girlfriend "lost". They happily confirmed the address with him, causing her even more terror now that he had found her location.

And of course our treatment of this issue is very situational:
About 6 years ago I remember an incident that demonstrated this situational approval (or blatant hypocrisy) of doxing. A newspaper in New York published a google map of everyone who had a pistol permit in two counties. The map resulted in exposing department of corrections employees addresses as well as dozens of women who were escaping domestic abusers. Here on DU many people reacted to this doxing with delight. When one of those doxed responded by doxing the staff of the newspaper in retaliation, those same people were angry. But the actions were the same.

209. LOL, you're not going to get a satisfactory answer

I see too many people saying that pretty much every avenue of resistance against oppression is bad and that we should never use these strategies, but they suggest nothing that we should be doing instead.

It needs to be a rule for people on the left - If you don't like a way of fighting back, then you need to suggest an alternative strategy that performs the same end result. (In this particular case, how do we fight back against white people using the police as their way of getting pesky black people out of their peripheral vision?)

214. Exactly.

That's why I always ask that question. The people that are always waxing poetic about their moral and ethical superiority over people that are actually taking the time to do the heavy lifting never have ANY ideas of their own on how to combat these things in a way that would fit their "ideals." All this particular person has had to offer is let the police do something after someone is dead. But never do anything to prevent the death in the first place.

217. I'd rather see her fined by the University for fake calls to the police

or disciplined in some way by the University.

We need to put pressure on the business', institutions like University and Police departments to handle these encounters in a fair manner and push for laws and policies that would make a racist asshole think twice about calling the police.

202. The link didn't work

Was she doxxed as in ďThis is Sarah Braasch, who lives at123 Penny Lane, phone number 555-123-4567, email asdf@yale.edu, or was just her name released? Itís been annoying me that the victimís name is released but not the harasserís. Same with the Students in Colorado. Mrs. Fragilityís name is withheld; the Native boysí names everywhere.

If you act like an asshole in public, expect to be identified by somebody who recognizes you

273. Yale Student Is Demanding The White Woman Who Called The Police On Her Be Expelled

There need to be some consequences https://newsone.com/3798939/lolade-siyonbola-sarah-braasch-yale-expelled/#.WvoE_8zuMY8.twitter

On Monday, May 7, White Yale graduate student Sarah Braasch called the cops on Lolade Siyonbola, who will graduate in 2019, for napping in a dorm common room, the Yale Daily News reported. Officers questioned Siyonbola for 15 minutes, claiming that they couldnít verify she was a student, an encounter which she recorded and posted on Facebook. Though Yale President Peter Salovey denounced Braaschís actions, she maintains she had the right to alert the police.

There has been national outrage over the incident and now Siyonbola, 28, is calling for Braasch, 43, to be expelled. In an interview with Good Morning America, she said, ďSomeone who uses the police in the way that Sarah uses it should be held accountable.Ē Braasch reportedly called the cops on another Black student a few months ago. Siyonbola continued, ďWhether thatís expulsion [or] some other form of disciplinary action, there needs to be some punitive measures for people who act out of racially motivated bias.Ē

She also told the morning show, ďI have always said to myself since Sandra Bland was killed, I said to myself if I ever have an encounter with police Iíll film myself.Ē Sandra Bland died in police custody in 2015 in Texas, and her family maintains it was not a suicide.

Braasch absolutely needs to be punished. While it is good that Yale President Peter Salovey spoke out, Braasch needs to be a clear example that this behavior is unacceptable. Anything less than that would be condoning her clear racism
