So now that it’s reached the media, I can write about an unfortunate incident without the threat of being considered a traitor.
One of our students was assaulted in the hospital on Saturday morning.
A lot of “”big people” are trying to call it “attempted assault”. I say nonsense.
Assault: an intentional act by one person that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent harmful or offensive contact. An assault is carried out by a threat of bodily harm coupled with an apparent, present ability to cause the harm.
My first two days of winter break were crazy, because we had to release statements about the matter and demand action from our university and the department of health.
Pity the media has been hounding people for answers instead of paying attention to our statement. Anycase.
Pity also that this had to happen before we could get an appointment with the hospital CEO. I’ve been begging for an appointment for the past nine months.
Pity also that the hospital is telling everyone that there is nothing wrong with security. Nonsense again! The student body and student government has been telling them incessantly that we don’t feel safe. But did they listen? Nope.
They told my council not to speak to the media. I say BS. Don’t want the hospital and faculty to look bad? Maybe you should have upped security when we asked you too.
They tell us to calm down. That it wasn’t so bad.
Don’t tell me to calm down. One of my students, a student I serve, a student I asked to vote for me, was assaulted. One of my students was traumatised when it could have been prevented. One of this country’s future doctors was harmed.
So do not tell me to calm down. What if she was your child?
