Black Roommate Goes to Court in Support of Racist Dorm Mate

Black Roommate Goes to Court in Support of Racist Dorm Mate

Brochu has been granted probation for her offences, and must perform an additional 200 hours of community service, with 50 of those hours being at a literacy organization, as well as another 50 at a social services group. If she successfully complete her service and avoid any more trouble, her breach of peace and criminal mischief charges will be dropped after two years.

In spite of her conciliatory tone in court, Rowe took to Facebook to say she disagreed with the judge's decision.

"By giving her this second chance, I hope she will change her ways and finds love for all mankind no matter what race", Rowe said of her former roommate's accelerated rehabilitation.

Brochu's lawyer, Thomas Stevens, apologized on her behalf, saying his client wanted to apologize sooner, but that he directed her to hold off out of concern that Rowe would sue. Since then, she found another job and has been working to raise the money to pay his fee. Brochu originally said she acted in retaliation for Rowe making fun of her snoring on Snapchat.

She said she lied in the Instagram post in an attempt to 'appear amusing, ' a police report said. Investigators found none, she said. Finishing off her incriminating post by calling Rowe "Jamaican Barbie", Brochu's actions earned her a place on the Daily Dot's list of worst millennials of 2017.

Police said the former University of Hartford student wrote on Instagram in October about rubbing used tampons on her roommate's backpack and putting her roommate's toothbrush 'where the sun doesn't shine'. According to the Boston Globe, Brochu referred to Rowe as "Jamaican Barbie" and Rowe said she had "throat pain" after Brochu's tampering.

An investigation launched into the incident found the officer, who was not named, was legally justified in using the force he did. Faces of nearly all the people present inside the courtroom at the time, including the judge is blurred in the video.

Both women had asked school officials for a change in roommates. And many would have gratefully leaped at the opportunity she had to attend college on a scholarship, the judge said.

However, the trauma she caused Rowe is probably much more long-lasting.

Judge Omar Williams also thinks the public shame Brochu will experience is punishment in itself; stating that friends, potential employers and even romantic interests will all be able to find out about Brochu's conduct with a simple internet search. "You can let this case define you or bury it beneath your accomplishments", he advised.

"There's a system for white people and there's a system for black people.That's what we face every day".

The president of the state NAACP reiterated its hate-crime demand outside court, according to the Courant: "There's a system for white people and there's a system for black people".
