Opinion: Emails to Baruch College about being thrown out of school. September 13, 2021.



Thank you for the information. 

This week I made two student grievances. 

  1. A few sentences about attendance being included in CUNY first so students know what their attendance record is. Also, I mentioned that I believe there should be more security cameras inside Baruch College. 
  2. The second student grievance was a few sentences about a student purposely trying to crash into me on a day the school was almost empty, and there were no classes. 

That’s grounds for being thrown out of Baruch College?  

I 100% respect you. I will always treat you with the utmost respect at all times. Regardless if we agree with each other or not. 

Regardless of what happens, I don’t blame you. I know there are a lot of other factors involved. 

I’m a model and respectful student. The only time I ever get reprimanded is for reporting things at school. It’s never for my behavior.

I always treat everyone at CUNY with the utmost respect at all times. That includes professors, students, security guards, and staff. 

I’m making the best out of the situation like always, and hopefully, I won’t be expelled from school for respectfully reporting issues at school.

I just read that a disciplinary sanction means you’re trying to have me thrown out of school for reporting that I’m being harassed. 

I have no animosity towards you or anyone at Baruch College. With that being said I am going to take this up with the 


Hopefully, I’ll have time to sue before I’m kicked out of school. I only want to be treated fairly and have someone from the courts look at the claims against me and clear my record because I don’t believe I ever did anything wrong. 

I’ve had excellent experiences with judges in my life, and the only time I hear from CUNY is to tell me I’m doing something wrong when reporting that I’m being harassed. 

Last semester the police arrested me and charged me with a misdemeanor. 

The police took audio of me and edited it into new conversations, exactly like the movie “Tango and Cash” from 1989. 

The police proceeded to buy a phone with cash and call Nassau County Police Headquarters. The police had the civilians at Nassau County Police Headquarters sign sworn statements saying the calls were real. 

Long story short, I respectfully and thoughtfully navigated the case so well that the judge let me go with a violation. 

I could have been completely exonerated, but the police were playing so dirty that I didn’t want to take any chances. I took the vio and ran. Needless to say, I haven’t been back to Nassau County. 

Right before the case started the police went into both of my CUNY emails that were on double verification, Baruch College and LaGuardia Community College, and erased dozens or hundreds of emails that would have helped my case. 

They also erased emails between LaGuardia Community College security and me discussing times when I was harassed at LaGuardia Community by students. 

Additional emails erased were between the Nassau County Executive’s Office and me. I was reporting that the police won’t stop harassing me. 

I understand you are just doing your job. 

I don’t hold you responsible for any of this. I still hope to make you proud of me one day. 

I’m 45 years old. I’m smart enough to know that I have no idea what’s happening behind the scenes at Baruch College and CUNY. For all I know, you might be my biggest ally and supporter.

I’ll stop using the sg form forever. 

You told me to stop contacting anyone at CUNY about people I grew up with paying NYC law enforcement to harass me, and I did. 

I was in the emergency room of two hospitals three times this week. Nothing COVID-related or contagious. 

The police were harassing me like usual.

In the meantime, I’ll stop using the sg form forever under any circumstances.  

I’m not sure what sg I ever submitted that wasn’t pertaining to Baruch College, although I’m sure I’ll find out.

I never heard any feedback from any of the sg forms I filled out.  

I’m in jeopardy of being out of school for respectfully reporting that I’m being harassed and other things pertaining to what’s going on at school.

I still have never been shown one email or sg that didn’t pertain to CUNY or that was inappropriate after respectfully asking a few times. I’ve only been threatened. 

Since the start of this semester, I’ve already started to turn in homework that isn’t due until October and November in September. 

Currently, I’m spending 10 or 12 hours per day on schoolwork. 

One more time, I don’t blame you or anyone at Baruch College for any of this. I blame a few high-ranking members of NYC law enforcement and the people I grew up with who pay them to sabotage me. 

I’m a fan and respect everyone at Baruch College.

I look forward to respectfully clearing my name and succeeding at Baruch College. 

I hope I don’t get kicked out of Baruch College. If I do, I’m going to cold call every professional investment company in America and any other country T Mobile will allow me to call for free 15 hours per day until someone invests in one of my startups. 

If by some miracle a professional investor gives me six or seven figures as an investment that would be turning lemons into lemonade.

There is no point in complaining because everyone has their own issues. 

If I do raise the money, you’re going to be the first person I email and I know you will be proud of me knowing that I’ve been street homeless for five years while earning all As at CUNY. 

I’m not going to contact anyone to try and mediate this inside CUNY. I’m going to file a lawsuit with the New York State Court of Claims. There is no animosity attached to the lawsuit. I just want a judge to look at all this and try to have my record cleared because I want to attend Baruch College and the CUNY journalism school. 

Whatever I have to do, please let me know. Hopefully, I get another chance. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine

Next email.


If you see my email signature at school doesn’t have anything about the police in it anymore. 

I was just looking at the email I sent you and in my email signature was information about the police.

I’m not even going to speculate how it got in there. I removed it. 

There has not been any mention of the police in my email signature this whole semester in any emails I’ve sent at Baruch College. 

The only email that included information about the police in my email signature was the email I just sent you because I didn’t realize it was in there. 

Thank you and have a great day.  

Ever upward, 

Mark Pine
