Crime & Punishment: Fairfield Man Chases Teenagers With a Machete
A UConn law student has been arrested and ordered to stay off the school's West Hartford campus over a series of disturbing comments she reportedly made online. WFSB reports that the investigation began after 32-year-old Anya Bargh allegedly suggested in an email to the Student Bar Association that the school "celebrate diversity by having the next dean NOT be Jewish." Bargh, a wholesome-looking blonde, reportedly made several other anti-Semitic remarks and used a racial epitaph for African-Americans in the email thread. Police later found a Flickr account apparently belonging to her that featured photos of Barbie dolls in miniature murder scenes along with comments referencing her professors. ("I hate you so much I would like to see you butchered," she allegedly wrote about one.) Teachers told police Bargh was hostile and frequently filed complaints challenging poor grades or mischaracterizing attempts at one-on-one help as sexual harassment.
