Opinion: Email to Baruch College about students blocking me from walking into the library. June 12, 2022.


Greetings Baruch College, 

June 11, 2022, 5:15 PM 

Library building lobby. 

Yesterday, there were two women that looked like students blocking the entrance to the library on the second-floor landing. 

I’m sure it was totally innocent and just a coincidence. 

I will never and have never mentioned a word about NYC law enforcement harassing me to anyone at Baruch College besides you via email as per your instructions.  

Anytime I see young women blocking an entrance or exit I think about how many times the police run that scam on me outside of school. If I try to carefully walk past them they crash into me, shove their phones in my face, and go running to tell on me. 

I always ignore everyone and don’t say anything. 

Anytime I see women or men blocking entrances and exits I patiently wait until they move without saying a word like I just did. 

It’s interesting that the school was 99.9 percent empty yesterday and there were two women blocking the entrance to the library when I was walking in. After they realized that I wasn’t going up the stairs to the library until they moved, they walked down the stairs and out of the building. 

I did not say one word to them. I didn’t look in their direction for much time either. 

Thank you and have a great day.
