What credibility do we retain as champions of free and civil idea exchange when we close down a significant forum for the community’s discussion of political issues during the RNC out of fear that even we can’t be civil to our guests? From whom? In this case and the example your put forth, both as an alien and a professional student at CWRU, I would like to respectfully respond with: “No! Within two weeks, practically the entire Canadian economy was locked down. The author of this piece has made corrections to clarify this. "Case Western" actually sounds hella good to recruiters. Some are CWRU alumni and smarter then this anonymous professor. No one can tell who a “good guy with a gun” is from a “bad guy with a gun.”. CWRU Students are not asked to give up their home. Would that provide better optics? Students “aren’t being forced off campus” in the same way that classes “aren’t being cancelled.” They are just being strongly, firmly advised to take the alternative housing being offered by the university with almost no notice. [/blocktext]I could complain, on behalf of my students, that this surprise closure is costing each of them $345 in wasted tuition money, per class. Nonetheless, hopefully readers will recognize the nonpartisan nature of these concerns about safety, community relations, and civic engagement. There is no “taking” or “seizure”… your claim would be laughed right out of court. Blame Black Lies Matter for this and the zombies that have rioted especially after Dallas. Of course, if anyone feels that I’m missing the standards for an injunction under controlling Sixth Circuit case-law, I’m all ears/. More explictly, President Snyder stated that their assigned riot gear would be kept in a separate location off-campus. But then what institution speaks the truth? This cry-baby rant proves it. Skip to comments. But while I am loathe to question the President’s motivations, I can certainly attest to the slipperiness of her words. They could discuss how it relates to the coursework, if it does. As stated in WIkipedia, better thing would be to use this Linux TRESOR approach, so that keys are in CPU and not RAM. AlumnusWithStraightFacts’ point stands. Oh, goodness. Check it out. Updated Jan 11, 2019; Posted Jul 12, 2016 . Although the announcement claims to be a last minute decision on behalf of student safety, it distracts from the reason why safety concerns are so dire. [blocktext align=”left”]What does it symbolize when a university library closes while security forces store firearms and pepper spray in dorms, weapons that will likely be used against next week’s demonstrators—some of whom, I fear, might be my students? No student is being expelled. I find liberal college professors like the one who wrote this dribble to be elitist blow-hards who are completely out of touch with reality. But this write is seemingly more concerned with whining because she objects to the presidential nominee coming to town. It means disrupting the education of bright, energetic young minds in order to offer our supply of housing to help meet the city’s demand for a convenient base of operations. So no, nobody is forcing the paying undergraduate out of their dorms. The blame belongs to would-be rioters. “I feel like I’m being forced out of the dorm that I paid for,” one student complained. You tell em’ appalled. Both Military and Police operated under a militia system at the time the Bill of Rights were written; the Third Amendment can reasonably be applied to housing police. To any informed observer this is what dystopia looks like. I do believe it was a mistake to agree, but I can see why they would have done it, and it doesn’t seem like it would have been possible to back out of the agreement this late, so they’ve done the best they can to protect us. I want them to be safe and to receive the education they deserve. If Cleveland was hosting the democratic convention instead of the republican one, this would not be news. Aren’t they here for our protection? If you’re so against the paramilitary taken their weapons into a dorm building, how about we pull all law enforce off campus and see what happens to the number of rapes, assaults, and thefts on campus. Put another way, while a class action could address common monetary damages, including the university’s failure to deliver 1/8th of the instruction I and other parents have paid for it can only address those common issues that define the class. Please crawl back under your air-conditioned rock. These body-armored, face-shielded, overtime-paid “mercenaries” will be champing at the bit to wield a baton and spray their pepper. Postal service do not live at the post office. © 2020 Advance Local Media LLC. When someone tries to harm you, who do you call? This directive has been disseminated multiple times. After reading all of your comments I can only assume that you are not another inconvenienced Cleveland resident but a PR wonk (and perhaps a Republican as well?). Unlikely. As for the police presence itself, my problem is not with any of the 1,700 out-of-town officers being housed on campus, individually. Right, the police. I believe that a university serves a purpose contrary to what CWRU is doing next week, and that our first commitment must be to books, not bullets, even during challenging times. She wrote that CWRU had agreed to house the officers at Cleveland's request and the city's officers have assisted campus police when needed. TBD. On a lighter note I have heard that Case is making a decent amount coin from this deal and hey if it will keep those donation calls away for a little bit I’m all for it! To put it bluntly, all summer I’ve been terrified that something awful could happen downtown next week. For one class, that’s 10 hours of class meetings out of 80 total hours. Hopefully, this one-week, minor disruption to life on campus will serve to prepare students for real world experiences. I would like all of you to consider the mayhem and murder of just one crazy mad truck driver in Nice yesterday. But they do so in spite of Case’s administration, not because of the administration. And the National Guard are here to protect the police! That does not guarantee that your students will have access to your coursework if they have altered accommodations. As they say, shit happens, and educated productive people know how to adjust accordingly. Misdirection is the farthest thing from my intention. They’re just being completely overhauled and compromised. This is a police totalitarian state, plain and simple. Respectfully, a concerned student and caller of bullshit. Furthermore, weapons of any kind are prohibited in campus buildings (Every dorm has this notice banning all weapons), a policy which has apparently been lifted. There is a precedent from the early ’60s for housing the National Guard at Case (before CWRU existed). But if so, I’m sure the writer will have the decency to sign it. Since there’s no doubt that students weren’t informed at that time, why were they not made aware (or offered accommodations by the university) when they signed up for housing over the summer?
