« New York might want to rethink this law | Main | The Daily Memo - 3/30/07 »

Sometimes it’s just more effective to ask politely, like: “Hey, can I borrow your notes?”

tec9.jpgEegads. Over at Salon, columnist Cary Tennis published a letter from a third-year law student who has had some issues while in school. Here’s the main one, which is quite terrible:

There were several people here whom I tried to be a good friend to….And one deliberately hit me, three times, and broke my nose — in two places. He then apologized thusly: “I’m sorry, I didn’t think it would break.” (Obviously we were both drunk.) He then got on Facebook and mocked me. He said he hit me in the face with a TEC-9. He made a drinking game out of making fun of me. He said he “beat me like your step-daddy.”

He hit her in the face with a TEC-9. That’s a a semi-automatic gun, for Christ’s sake!

You know, there are some days that I actually miss law school. Other days, I’m reminded of how many assholes there are at the typical law school, and I don’t quite miss my time there so much. This would be one of those days.

hi Seth,
well, technically, she didn't say he hit her with a tec-9, but that he hit her, broke her nose, then wrote about it on facebook, bragging that he did it with a tec-9. Precisely how she was hit, whether with his fist or some object is unclear. Needless to say his behavior, irrespective of whether or not he embellished the specifics later,is incredibly disgusting.

While she comes across as an immature and conflicted person, that doesn't mean she deserved it; not in the least.

"While she comes across as an immature and conflicted person, that doesn't mean she deserved it; not in the least. "

How is she "immature" for being upset and traumatized that a fellow male student broke her nose? That sounds very upsetting and traumatizing to me, especially in the nasty social context she describes.
