After spending the last two years personally observing UCLA's systematic stonewalling of a relatively straightforward faculty misconduct complaint, I can't say I'm surprised to hear that a graduate student felt so completely alienated by their inadequate administrative processes that he resorted to violence. 

It's not what I would do.  But the sad truth is that the evidence points to the institution systematically ignoring allegations of faculty misconduct and allowing bullying to run rampant. 

Don't believe that UCLA administrators ignore misconduct?  Read the reports yourself:

"Allegations of racism were rarely investigated and rarely resulted in sanctions" ( http://articles.latimes.com/2013/oct/18/local/la-me-ucla-discrimination-20131019 )

"UCLA’s policy for reacting to incidents of perceived discrimination lacks coherence and credibility" ( http://www.ucop.edu/moreno-report/external-review-team-report-10-15-13.pdf )

"graduate students are weighing in on what they see as a climate of hostility toward minority students" ( https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/11/25/ucla-grad-students-stage-sit-during-class-protest-what-they-see-racially-hostile )

"Academic Bullying: A Problem on College Campuses" (http://diverseeducation.com/article/13873/ )

"Health providers at DHS [ed: including UCLA hospitals] have highlighted the common practice of "shuffling around" managers who violate the zero tolerance code of conduct, but are never truly held accountable for their behavior." ( https://www.seiu721.org/2016/05/lacusc-and-harbor-ucla-ceos-join-dhs-chi.php )

"more than half of all medical students still said that they had been intimidated or physically or verbally harassed" ( http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/09/the-bullying-culture-of-medical-school/ )

"UCLA community protests professor's punishment for sex harassment" ( http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-ucla-sex-harass-20160302-story.html )

"instead of taking appropriate disciplinary action against him, UCLA administrators quietly drafted a settlement and put the case to rest" ( http://dailybruin.com/2016/03/06/editorial-ucla-should-offer-severance-package-to-piterberg-to-protect-community/ )

"UCLA faces federal probe of alleged sexual misconduct" ( http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-ucla-title-ix-20140813-story.html )

"UCLA prof falsified cancer data" ( http://www.the-scientist.com/?articles.view/articleNo/27128/title/UCLA-prof-falsified-cancer-data/ )

"Whistle-blower alleges academic misconduct in UCLA men’s basketball program" ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/early-lead/wp/2015/10/12/whistle-blower-alleges-academic-misconduct-in-ucla-mens-basketball-program/ )

I had a lovely (bicycle) ride yesterday in the forest outside Goettingen. There were surprisingly large and colorful slugs all over the place. Some were bright orange (such as this one) some dark black, some brown-orange. Most of them were as big - as long and thick as my fingers.

This author has a really interesting way to date the breach using proportionality of email addresses...
 
It's been a crazy time for data breaches and as I wrote yesterday, we've seen a very distinct pattern of historical mega breaches lately. Fling in 2011, LinkedIn in 2012, tumblr in 2013 and the mother of them all, MySpace in, well, we don't quite know. There's been no information
