Email to Baruch College about access to study materials and being harassed.



First and foremost I treat everyone at Baruch College CUNY with the utmost respect at all times, regardless if I get my way or not. That includes students, professors, and staff.  

I love Baruch College. My professors are amazing. It’s the best opportunity for me. 

The professor of the above class isn’t sharing the slides with the students. That’s fine. I can screen picture the slides as they pop up. The professor is great, that’s not the obstacle. 

The issue is that people I know harass me beyond belief outside of school. They break my laptops, steal my phones, rip my clothes, attack me, go into all my email and social media accounts, and wreak havoc. 

I can produce police reports where they take my debit card and steal my money. I can also show police reports where I have been robbed multiple times. Additionally, I have been denied police reports dozens of times by the NYPD. 

I have been to NYC hospital emergency rooms dozens of times after being attacked. Thank God for welfare health insurance or I would owe hundreds of thousands of dollars. I’m sure the taxpayers are thrilled. 

Even with all this, I have an optimistic attitude. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. I’m confident if I stay on the right track everything will improve. 

I understand there is probably nothing anyone at the school can do to help. All I’m saying is if I have the slides I will study them. 

If people go into my Google Photos, laptop, email, etc, and erase the slides I can’t study. I’ll still pass but I won’t have a chance to earn an A or B.  

I have contacted the New York FBI, NYPD, Department of Investigations, the Civilian Complaint Review Board, NYPD Internal Affairs, and others. They have not helped me at all. 

The only one who helped was the New York City Comptroller’s Office. Albeit, it’s a slow process and the harassment continues.

I wouldn’t go back to a homeless shelter if the city offered me ten million dollars a night to sleep there so that’s not an option. I’m lucky I made it out of the last homeless shelter in one piece. I’m not trying to press my luck. 

Furthermore, because I’m homeless it’s impossible to fully secure my possessions. 

Please advise if you have any ideas for me. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward, 

Mark Pine
