Emails Sent to the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police on May 8th, 2018, During the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax, Before, During, and After the Yale Campus Police Officers Arrived

Below please find the emails that I sent to the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police on May 8th, 2018, during the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. These emails were sent before, during, and after the Yale Campus Police Officers arrived at my dorm, the Hall of Graduate Studies. So, you can see from these emails, that the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police engaged in gross malfeasance, and they lied about me, particularly in their public statements immediately following the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. They knew exactly what had occurred; they knew exactly why I had called the non emergency helpline of the Yale Campus Police; they knew from the very beginning that I was entirely innocent of the false accusations of racism against me.

Here are the emails:

Re: I just want to let you all know that I called the Yale Police again

I just wanted to let you all know that I had to call the Yale Police again.  
I entered the common room a little while ago, because students had been making noise in there all evening, and I just wanted to check on the room and make sure that everything was ok, and because I was throwing something away.  
The light was off in the interior room, but there was someone’s things all over the desk.  So, I walked into the interior room.  
There was someone sleeping on the couch with a blanket completely covering them.
I turned on the light and said “Who are you?  You can’t sleep in here.  You’re not supposed to be sleeping in here.  Are you a resident?”
A woman pulled the blanket down.  She said, “Are you the person who called the cops on the party?”
Then, she picked up her phone like she was going to take a picture of me or call the cops.  
And, I said, no, I’m going to call the police, because you’re not supposed to be sleeping in here.
I called the Yale Police.  They’re here.  
I told them why I think those students are attempting to provoke an incident by being noisy in the common room.  
In front of me, she said that I need to be institutionalized.  

The police are dealing with her.  
They said that they are going to come back and speak with me thereafter.  
I will let you know what happens.  
Best,
Sarah

Dear all,
I am copying Officer Schenkle, so that she can explain the situation to the officers who came by tonight.  
The police did not seem to understand the situation.  I tried to explain what was happening to them, but they didn’t seem to understand.  They said that they were going to contact the Dean of Students.  I said, please contact the Dean of Students.  I also told them to read Officer Schenkle’s police report.  I had also contacted Officer Schenkle to document that someone(s) was coming by my door and shaking my handle each evening for approximately two weeks.
I tried to explain that this person in the common room was clearly one of the students who has been harassing me, which is why I called the police.  

Best,
Sarah

Dear all,
I am also making sure that Officer Schenkle has this first email that I sent to all of you.

Dear Grace,
I’m sure that you will, but please let Chief Higgins know what happened.  
I don’t understand why the officers who came by were acting like I had done something wrong.  
But, as soon as she asked, “Are you that lady who called the cops on that party?” I knew that I should call the police.
Did I do something wrong?  The one police officer told me that I should NOT have called the police.  I tried to explain to him what had happened, but he wouldn’t let me.  He seemed to get angry, and he said, “This conversation is over.”  
All best,
Sarah

Dear all,
I’m sorry for all of the emails.  I’m obviously upset.  
I just want to take this opportunity to once again ask for the common room on the 12th floor of the tower of HGS to simply be closed for the rest of the year.  The students who have been harassing me, and who are clearly still upset about the incident of February 24th, are clearly using their access to the room as a means to harass me as much as possible before the end of the school year.  
Best,
Sarah

Dear all,
I just feel compelled to let everyone know that the woman, I heard over the police officer’s radio that her name is Olo Dayo — she lives on the 5th floor next to the elevator apparently, has slammed both the common room door and the elevator door as hard as she can several times during the past 15 to 20 minutes.  
This is obviously an attempt to harass me.  This has been happening all night long as well actually.  
I am literally begging you at this point to save me from this ongoing harassment and close the common room until the end of the school year.
I am completely and totally flabbergasted that this has not already been done.
Best,
Sarah Braasch
