One MIT student just experienced the extreme downside of dating a Wellesley girl:
At about 6:30 a.m., Tang sneaked into his dorm room at MIT, climbed on top of him as he slept, and plunged a knife into his back, Assistant District Attorney Suzanne Kontz said in Cambridge District Court yesterday, where Tang was arraigned. The man woke, turned around, and tried to fight her off, but Tang kept stabbing him. At one point, she lost her grip on the knife and reached for another she had brought with her, Kontz said. Tang was armed with three knives, the prosecutor said.
He will survive. She is in the slammer. Meanwhile back at Wellesley:
Mary Ann Hill, a Wellesley spokeswoman, confirmed that Tang is a student at the college but declined to provide personal information about her. Hill said the college had not made a decision yet on any disciplinary action against Tang. "I think today our focus was on how to support and to help anyone who might be affected by the situation," she said.
That is exactly the right thing to say and do.
Would that students accused of a felony at Duke were treated with the same respect by their university.
