No One “Deserves” to be Robbed

     In November 2014, Georgetown University senior Oliver Friedfeld and his roommate were mugged at gun point. Friedfeld says he deserved it because of his “privilege.” In an opinion piece in the university newspaper, The Hoya, Friedfeld wrote that he “can hardly blame” the assailants for robbing him. He argued that income inequality is to blame for the crime.

     “Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’ It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem,” Friedfeld wrote…

     Friedfeld asserted that in order to end opportunistic crime, “We should look at ourselves first. Simply amplifying police presence will not solved the issue. It is up to millenials to right some of the wrongs of the past. Until we do so, we should get comfortable with sporadic muggings and break-ins. I can hardly blame them.” [What a load of university-speak crap from a rich, guilt-ridden ivory tower idiot.]
