SANTA BARBARA (CBSLA.com) School officials are asking students to be extra-vigilant after a 19-year-0ld was beaten and gang raped.
The victim told police she was attacked by several men between the campus and Isla Vista after 11 p.m. Saturday.
Isla Vista is a neighborhood adjacent to the campus where many students live.
The victim is working with law enforcement to identify her attackers. They were only identified as Asian.
Right now, what we have to go on is that the suspects are described as Asian males. Obviously this is a lot for the victim to go through, so we are working with her to try and get a better description and to find who did this, said Kelly Hoover of the Santa Barbara Sheriffs Dept.
Another woman, an 18-year-old student, also said she was sexually assaulted Saturday morning in Isla Vista in the 6500 block of Del Playa.
Three suspects including a juvenile have reportedly been arrested in that attack.
Asian as in Moslems from the Middle East ???
Have we picked up the British media’s euphemism for Muslims - “Asians?”
I was surprised to see that some neighborhoods in Santa Barbara - near downtown - are pretty raunchy.
Not very descriptive. In these PC times that could mean Oriental or Middle Eastern. I'm betting the latter.
Doesn’t sound like that’s what they meant.
> Asian as in Moslems from the Middle East ???
I think you can count on them being Moslems, but “Asian” probably indicatesplaces like Pakistan, Afghanistan, or even Indonesia.
Asian is euphemism for Oriental.
The la-la fools in SB have allowed the “homeless” to infest the place for decades.
It has to be. So now where are the Asians to kick these scum outta their group!
i highly doubt it... Asian--what used to be known as Oriental...
Asian is too broad a category to be useful. It refers to a continent with many countries and cultures. It unfairly puts a Chinese person in the same category as a Pakistani.
White, conservative Christian males, I’m sure. Probably lacrosse players.
In the British press Muslims are euphemistically labeled as southwest Asians. Those from India or close by are south Asians.
I think in this case Asian = Not Black and Not Hispanic.
hummmm...I wonder how many ‘negros gang rape a white women’ police reports CBS passed on since reporting this?
It seems bizarre to me.
Right. To those of us who pay attention, we know what it likely means slam. To those who don’t pay attention or for some reason still trust the msm, ‘Asian’ mean Oriental.
Since when was the Left not bizarre?
My Vietnamese wife hates the term Asian. She says it’s like calling her a terrorist. It’s what European call muslims. She prefers the term Oriental.
Isla Vista has always had a large population of crazy people, and rape was a problem when I lived there back in the late 70’s. But I don’t ever recall hearing of a gang rape so this is something much different. This sounds a lot like the ROP.
If they were black, would reports have stated even that vague description?
At least the Brits still use “Oriental”, so if they say Asian, you know they mean “someone from the Subcontinent, likely a Pakistani.” With U.S. PC, you don’t even get that.
Exactly my thoughts. Perhaps they’re really Asian.
TEA party gone bad.
