Another Yale Murder (Sort Of)

April 27th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Yale, we have a problem.

Lishan Wang

For the second time in a year, the name “Yale” has been linked to the word “murder.” On Monday, Dr. Vajinder Toor, 34, a fellow at the Yale School of Medicine, originally of New Delhi, was shot and killed outside his home in nearby Branford by Dr. Lishan Wang, 44, originally of Beijing. Branford police were quick to say that the murder was not “in any way related to Yale,” but–too late–the crime is already being billed as another “Yale Murder.” The NY Times reports that Wang worked under Toor in New York previously and was fired after a confrontation with the man who would later be his victim. It also appears that Wang was targeting two other doctors he held responsible for his firing.

Ironically, Wang filed a lawsuit after he was fired claiming that he was “unfairly labeled excitable, emotional and unable to control his anger.”

    Wang (unfortunate name huh Jen?) filed a lawsuit after he was fired claiming that he was “unfairly labeled excitable, emotional and unable to control his anger.”

    Guess he showed them.

    Wow, look at that expression on his face. I can almost see a cartoon thought-bubble popping up over his head saying “Yeah, I DID it! Wanna make something of it??”

    A long time ago, when I wished for media portrayals of Asian men as being assertive and aggressive instead of passive and submissive, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. What’s up with all these crazy Asian killers in the news in recent yrs?

I was trying to give Andrew bunny ears, but I ended up throwing an Asian peace sign instead. Yo, I think that's racist.
