Murder charges were filed for UPenn homicide victim

The primary suspect in the homicide of University of Pennsylvania sophomore Blaze Bernstein was charged with murder Wednesday for allegedly stabbing Bernstein to death.

The Daily Pennsylvania reports, “At a press conference on the afternoon of Jan. 17, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas announced there would be a bail hearing later that day for defendant Samuel Woodward, 20, with the scheduled amount set at $1 million. He said bail likely will be set ‘because it’s a murder case, but it’s not a special circumstance case.'”

In addition, there have been reports saying the murder was a hate crime against Bernstein’s sexuality following the arrest of Woodward.

The Dartmouth reports, “Delaney, who previously worked as an entrepreneur and founded two companies, has served Maryland’s sixth district in the House of Representatives since 2013. He announced that he was running in the 2020 presidential race on July 28, 2017, in a Washington Post op-ed, becoming the first Democratic candidate to declare his candidacy in the upcoming race.”

His speech comes less than a year into Trump’s presidency and three years before the next presidential caucus. Eager are we…

“I think search committee members, and I’m betting this may be true of the Harvard search committee…get lured into thinking that because somebody has a Nobel prize, for instance—or because somebody has worked at Yale or went to Harvard or is a great fundraiser—it’s easy to make the assumption that because someone’s resume speaks to those things that somehow they’re also a good person.”
