Opinion: A few Baruch College security guards running scams on me. 4/1/2022.


Greetings Baruch College, 

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at Baruch College and CUNY with the utmost respect regardless of how they treat me and it’s not always nice. 

I just showed up at the library building a few minutes after 7 AM. The doors to the library were locked. 

I don’t usually visit this building, so I don’t know my way around it. 

I walked down the steps and towards to turnstiles to see if I could get to the library by the elevator. 

Two security guards purposely tried to bump into me right in front of the turnstiles. I didn’t say a word. 

Then another security guard tried to go through the turnstile at the same time as me, behind me, without respecting my space at all when the building is 99.9 percent empty. I’m not sure if there is a security camera there or not. 

I would not have even been in this building if the printer in the vertical building wasn’t broken for the past week. 

I did not say a word to any of the security guards about it. I can care less. 

I have a feeling I know what this is about but I’m not going to speculate in this email. 

I don’t know if there is a security video of what just happened or not.

I’m used to this kind of thing. People I know are still paying various law enforcement to harass me every day. 

I never mention a word about the NYPD to anyone at Baruch College or CUNY besides you. 

I don’t like complaining to you but I have to cover myself when there is probably security video with me surrounded by a bunch of security guards like I just robbed a bank. 

One more quick thing. 

Yesterday I was visiting some professors during office hours. Another coincidence. 

One of the professors who I used an email from the professor in my ongoing lawsuit against CUNY in the New York Court of Claims was standing between the exit and me. 

I politely said hi and that was it. 

I’m not sure if someone thinks I’m mad at the professor, I’m not. The professor did me a favor. In my humble opinion, the professor proved my case with the email. 

Even if I was unhappy with the professor, I wouldn’t say a word. I have worked a million hours to become a Journalsim Major at Baruch College.

Also, I believe the professor was told to send the email, I don’t believe it was the professors idea. I like the professor. The professor is a great teacher.

The same exact way I didn’t take it personally when I was put on probation from your office. I have no clue whose idea that was. Anything negative that happens to me I blame on law enforcement.

I respect and like you. Someone else might hold a grudge if they don’t understand the dynamic of how organizations and law enforcement work. 

I think you’re great and your whole office is doing a great job. I love this school. Nothing is perfect. 

I’ve been through hell and back in my life. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. 

I don’t want to go to another college. I love CUNY. 

I just have reason to believe that NYC law enforcement is running their usual scams (just now with the security guards, professors asking me to go off campus with an 18 year old woman, take our masks off and take pictures of each other and share all our personal information, last names, phone, email, etc. what does that have to do with school?) and I want to try and get help from a judge because the only government employees I’ve ever seen put some type of restraints on law enforcement is a judge and the courts. 

If I’m correct a judge’s name and decisions are connected to public record and all judges value their reputation. 

That is the total opposite of other government employees that just ignore the people when it’s convenient for them and there is no public record. 

For example, the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, the Public Advocate’s Office, the New York City Council, NYPD Internal Affairs, Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, US Attorney Southern District’s Office, etc. 

I don’t have an issue with the security guards. New York City law enforcement runs around and tells people at the post office, HRA, etc. to pull the same thing on me everywhere I go. I treat everyone at the post office, HRA, and here respectfully regardless of what’s going on. 

I have the highest tolerance for scams and insults against me that exists on the planet. 

In my opinion, everyone has to do what law enforcement says regardless of if it’s right or wrong. 

I mad at the people I grew up with that pay New York City law enforcement to harass me. I’m not mad at the people they are paying or random people that get wrapped up in this. 

The only ones who have the power to help me are judges and a few other random individuals that are almost impossible to reach. 

I’m making the best of the situation like always. I will continue to treat all the staff, students, etc. at Baruch College with the utmost respect even if they purposely try to bump into me, crash into me, ask me to share all my personal information and go off-campus and take pictures of 18-year-old women from my classes, etc. 

The police can’t believe I’ve survived all their abuse (arrested in Nassau County, broken arm, made homeless, robbed dozens of times, etc.) 

Now I’m getting thousands of visits on social media and it’s only a matter of a little luck and someone is going to reach out and lend me a hand and I’m going to get my life back.

In the meantime, I’m going to continue to act like​ a perfect student at Baruch College because without Baruch College I would have been toasted by law enforcement by now. You and everyone else here made my life 100X more comfortable than HRA would have without CUNY. 

Thank you and have a great day.
