More on Near Fatal Beating at Massachusetts Inclusive Peace and Love College

If you missed my post here about how a professor, a female Japanese national, nearly beat to death a fellow female professor at the elite Mt. Holyoke College in Massachusetts, go back now and read it because here is the next installment:

From Law Enforcement Today (h/t: Cathy):

Professor at police-bashing MA college accused of attacking colleague with fire poker, garden shears

 

SOUTH HADLEY, MA- The campus has made national headlines for students bashing law enforcement. Now the college is once again in the news. This time it’s after a professor there was arrested on charges she tried to murder a colleague.

There’s a funny expression, helped made popular via various t-shirts, that says:

“If you don’t remember, it didn’t happen”.

Seems like that is the excuse being offered when a college professor in Massachusetts was accused and arrested for allegedly attacking a female colleague of hers inside the victim’s home.

Art Professor Rie Hachiyanagi arrested in violent attack at all the women’s college which brags that it is an “inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff in an environment of mutual respect in which all thrive and contribute to the flourishing of others.”

Although, “attacking” might be a bit of an understatement, seeing that the charges levied are attempted murder based upon the extent of the injuries and the weapons claimed to have been used are downright disturbing.

Fifteen miles north of the Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, lies the small town of Leverett which hosts a population of under 2,000 people and rarely has a violent crime recorded on the books year over year.

You can imagine the shock sent through the very small town that hasn’t had even five reported assaults since 2014 to now have someone nearly murdered in their own home.

An art professor from Mount Holyoke College, Rie Hachiyanagi, has been charged with attempted murder and various other crimes after visiting a colleague in the small town of Leverett. According to the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, she allegedly attacked one of the other staff members from the school with a fire poker and other objects inside their home.

Just this past Friday, Rie Hachiyanagi was arraigned at the Orange District Court and was ordered to be held without bail. As of now, Hachiyanagi has another hearing scheduled on February 4th where the circumstances could change with regard to setting a bail amount.

Now for the part that will make you want to roll on the floor and laugh your head off….

Now let’s flashback to last April, when Western Massachusetts Police Academy recruits were graduating. [And using the college auditorium.—ed]

According to a report from the Daily Wire, students from Mount Holyoke College had been distributing flyer handouts alerting other students to the upcoming graduation. They planned to protest the ceremony.

The graduation was set to take place in the college’s auditorium – and activists around campus were livid.

The school circulated an announcement to make students aware of the large police presence on campus.

[….]

The notice being circulated by student activists was claiming that the administration was welcoming a group synonymous with white supremacy.

The school is “welcoming a large number of armed individuals from a known paramilitary organization with a documented history of white supremacist and patriarchal violence,” the flyer said.

It then named minority groups that have a “reason to be alarmed.

They even said allowing the graduation would make campus unsafe for, “black women, women of color, Black queer and trans folks, queer and trans folks of color, non-Black/POC queer & trans folks, undocumented folks, and disabled folks.”

There is much more, so you must go read it yourself because reporter Gregory Hoyt did a lot of work.  However, below is one last comment that had me roaring with laughter alone here in my attic room (I recently moved up from the basement):

Your teachers might be running around preaching about how Trump is evil and that police officers and conservatives are all racist, homophobic hate-mongers, but I can guarantee you that’s more ridiculous than the fact you’re paying $50,000 a year to get a ‘gender studies’ degree.

Professor Hachiyanagi will be back in court on February 4th, so come back for the next installment shortly thereafter.

In case you are wondering, as far as we know, her victim has not been publicly named.

I’m dying to know what color she is, aren’t you?

Massachusetts: Japanese Female Professor Nearly Beats to Death Fellow Professor, also Female

This is a doozy of a ‘diversity is beautiful’ alert involving a ‘new American.’

Japanese national, Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, in custody for attempted murder.

Stories like this rarely show up in the national news, but this story from the elite Mt. Holyoke College is sure getting a lot of attention in Massachusetts.

Yikes!

The former exchange student from Japan who “decided to stay” in the US and ultimately became an art professor was supposedly in love with a fellow female professor (60) who had never had any idea, or had never encouraged, any romantic relationship.

From KIRO-7  (Hat tip: Cathy):

Mount Holyoke professor accused of attacking colleague over unrequited love

LEVERETT, Mass. — A Mount Holyoke art professor is accused of going to a fellow professor’s home over Christmas break and attacking the woman with a rock, a fireplace poker and garden shears out of unrequited love, according to court documents.

Rie Hachiyanagi, 48, of South Hadley, is charged with armed assault to murder a person older than 60, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, one count of mayhem and one count of armed assault in a dwelling. According to Northwestern District Attorney David E. Sullivan’s office, Hachiyanagi was arraigned on the charges Friday.

The victim, whose name has been redacted from police reports to protect her identity, is expected to survive, but she suffered severe injuries, Sullivan said in a news release.

The woman is not a member of the art faculty and it was not clear how well she and Hachiyanagi know one another, though the victim told investigators she’d known Hachiyanagi since August 2005.

The victim told state troopers she and Hachiyanagi have never been romantically involved and that Hachiyanagi was in a long-term relationship with a man, according to court documents.

Both professors were on winter break when the attack took place, according to a spokeswoman for Mount Holyoke, a women’s college about 12 miles north of Springfield in South Hadley. Christian Feuerstein told the Boston Globe that Hachiyanagi has been placed on administrative leave.

Mount Holyoke President Sonya Stephens spoke with students/faculty and didn’t name either professor. From the colleges website:  “Mount Holyoke sustains an increasingly diverse, global, and inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff in an environment of mutual respect in which all thrive and contribute to the flourishing of others.”

“This individual … is not permitted on our campus pending further review of the incident,” Feuerstein said in a statement. “We will cooperate fully with law enforcement agencies in support of their ongoing investigations.”

Mount Holyoke President Sonya Stephens also addressed the incident with students and faculty, without divulging either professor’s name, Friday, the same day Hachiyanagi was arraigned.

[…..]

The newspaper reported that Hachiyanagi, a native of Japan, has been a member of the school’s faculty since 2004. A professor in art, art history and Asian studies over the years, she is currently chair of the college’s Art Studio, or art department.

A criminal complaint filed by Massachusetts State Trooper Geraldine Bresnahan indicates that police were called to the victim’s home in Leverett, located about 16 miles north of campus, just after midnight Christmas Eve. Hachiyanagi was the person who called 911.

The responding officers arrived to find both Hachiyanagi and the victim lying on the floor of the home’s foyer. Though Hachiyanagi was uninjured, the other woman was “barely breathing, semi-conscious and with a head injury,” Bresnahan’s statement reads.

Hachiyanagi told the officers she had arrived for previously agreed upon plans with the victim to find her beaten and lying in a pool of blood. The officers searched the house, multiple outbuildings and the property for an assailant, with no results, the complaint says.

At that point, the victim, who was able to speak, told the troopers she had lost her glasses in the attack and did not know the gender or anything else about the person who had attacked her.

Her statements would change drastically when she was at the hospital — and away from Hachiyanagi, according to court documents.

Find out what happened next!  It is an incredible tale!  Go here, and you can see the arrest report and criminal complaint as well.

What I want to know is this:  Do foreign exchange students come here and decide to stay for decades?

Hachiyanagi is a renowned artist known for incorporating handmade paper in her work, according to Mount Holyoke. A 2017 blurb on the college’s website and a 2012 article in the Globe both reported she first came to the United States in 1988 as a high school exchange student.

She decided to become an artist after having to use sketching to communicate in the Kansas community in which she was placed. According to the 2012 Globe story, she was also asked to paint a homecoming mural at the high school.

After deciding on her 18th birthday to study art, she never returned to live in Japan, the Globe reported.

Looks like Hachiyanagi is going to be one more foreign national (new American!) we will be paying for for years to come—prisons aren’t cheap!

President Was Right: “Devil’s Highway” from Massachusetts to NH Brought Drugs to Granite State

This week the feds busted 38 individuals they say are responsible for addiction and death in New Hampshire.

Trump in New Hampshire

The operation dubbed “Devil’s Highway” once again brought attention to Trump’s words about how Lawrence, Mass. is a hub for the distribution of dangerous opioids and other drugs throughout New England.

And, it sure looks like ‘new Americans’ are responsible….

MSN News:

President Trump’s Lawrence comments back in spotlight after massive drug bust

“For anyone who said Lawrence is not a hub for distribution, how you looking now?” said N.H. state Rep. Fred Doucette, who was a state co-chair for Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“This definitely solidifies some statements that people took offense to,” Doucette added.

“Incidents like this are proof positive of the fact that Lawrence is a hub.”

The 10-week enforcement operation in the Merrimack Valley targeted drug distribution in Lawrence, and trafficking between Lawrence and destinations in New Hampshire.

These U.S. attorney prosecutions should resonate with New Hampshire voters, said Republican activist Fran Wendelboe.

For details on the bust see Monday’s US Justice Department press release:

Alert! Massachusetts Activist Pushes for Towns to Take-in Border Jumpers

Editor:  I’m back and overwhelmed by the number of stories I need to post in the coming days.  I’m starting with this one for a couple of reasons.  First, since RRW is not available at the moment, this is the sort of alert I might have placed there, and secondly it is in some ways an easy ho-hum kind of story because it is happening in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts and is expected to resonate there. (Or so we will find out!).
Therefore, it should be a quick and easy post for me to warm-up with (and doesn’t involve murder and violence as my next posts surely will).

However, it is important!  All of you should be on the lookout, no matter where you live for Open Borders activists looking to the Portland, Maine model and saying, sure let’s send hundreds of those crossing the borders illegally to far-flung towns and cities to be ‘cared for’ in local settings by the good people of Anytown, USA.
This story is from the communities of Amherst and Northampton, Massachusetts home to a bevy of elite liberal colleges.  We will see if the town fathers/mothers will entertain the idea of people opening their homes to migrants of all stripes while they anticipate the demise of the Trump presidency.
The news represents a possible new initiative (called “community sponsorship”) that doesn’t revolve around the usual refugee resettlement contractors and the normal process of refugee placement we are familiar with.
And, it invites all migrants, not just legitimate refugees, but illegal border-crossers and those who have overstayed a visa (like the Nigerian charged in the murder of a Utah college student), to take up residence in private homes.

New American from Kenya Convicted in Medicaid Fraud Scheme

Editor:  I have a huge backlog of stories to post here at Frauds and Crooks and hope to do a news round-up post to catch up in the coming days.  A reader recently suggested that I should consider just sending out straight news without my editorial comment. I think I’ll try to do a little bit of both going forward and the news round-up will help with that by giving you more information with less words!

Hellen Kiago
Hellen Kiago convicted of ripping us off to the tune of $2.5 millon!

However, this story from Massachusetts caught my eye for a couple of reasons and is worth posting in greater detail.
It might not have been worth posting at all if it weren’t for the revelation that the convicted home health care provider was able to send $1.5 million of ill-gotten gains out of the country just before her arrest.
And, the story is important because home health care ‘businesses’ are rife with fraud and keep turning up in my searches for medicare and medicaid scam stories.
