Opinion: My grades at Baruch College CUNY are going down this semester. 


Greetings NYPD Internal Affairs,

I don’t care what grades my professors give me, I will always treat my Baruch College and CUNY professors with the utmost respect at all times. 

If one of my CUNY professors threw my belongings out of the window, poured a can of paint on my head, and called me a homeless bum loser (I’m homeless)—I would not say a negative word to any of my Baruch College professors under any circumstances. 

I don’t lose my cool at Baruch College. 

That’s why I’m 46 years old, living in the street homeless, with law enforcement harassing me and I still don’t have a criminal record. 

I’ve learned a lot of valuable information at Baruch College and LaGuardia Community College. 

If law enforcement wasn’t constantly harassing me, CUNY would be the best experience ever. 

To be honest, I’m happy as long as I pass. 

I’m happy as long as law enforcement doesn’t murder me with drugs as they are threatening. 

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. 

That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. 

Treating people at Baruch College and CUNY respectfully is more important than anything. 

I never partake in any controversial conversations at Baruch College under any circumstances. 

I’m 80% complete with my bachelors degree at Baruch College. 

I’m set to graduate in the next 3 semesters. 

My main goals at Baruch College are to treat everyone respectfully and earn a 2.0 GPA so I can graduate. 

To be honest, I try to get good grades but at the end of the day all that matters is that I pass. 

I think I need a 2.0 to pass. 

Right now my GPA is above 3.0. 

I’m living in the street homeless. 

I don’t drink. 

I don’t smoke. 

I don’t party. 

I don’t have a criminal record. 

I don’t do anything illegal. 

I’ve been living in the street homeless for longer than I’ve been a student at CUNY. 

I make the best of all situations. 

People I know pay law enforcement to harass me. 

Law enforcement has women and men in regular clothes shove their phones in my face, blow drug smoke in my face, crash into me, rob me, vandalize my property, etc. 

Someone stole my cell phone out of my pocket when I was sleeping 3 times in the last 2 months. 

I have been robbed and had my property vandalized hundreds of times.

I’m not giving up. 

This semester law enforcement has been blocking me from using the Baruch College Wi-Fi. 

Law enforcement and their civilian team have been harassing me constantly. 

I’m 90% done with all my schoolwork for the semester Spring 2023. 

I would guess that this semester I’m going to get about a 2.5 GPA or maybe a 2.0 GPA.  

Mostly Bs and Cs or whatever a 2.0 is. 

Honestly, I don’t care. 

I would prefer As but under the circumstances I’m making the best of the situation. 

I have 3 months off of school this summer. 

I’m going to call and email thousands of organizations trying to get help and expose law enforcement for harassing me. 

Law enforcement has drug addicts constantly pretending they are with me, pretending they are handing me things, etc. 

Plus law enforcement has people at Baruch College constantly harassing me. 

Under the circumstances I think I’m doing OK. 

As I said I’m making the best of the situation. 

No matter what grades any of my professors give me I will continue to treat them all with the utmost respect at all times. 

All my professors are amazing. 

I’ve learned a lot this semester. 

I love learning about journalism and BLS. 

Everything I have is because of Baruch College and CUNY. 

For example, my laptops, my winter coats, my phones that law enforcement didn’t steal yet, and much more. 

I don’t care about grades. 

I never talk about law enforcement harassing me at Baruch College. 

I’m making the best of the situation. 

Even when my professors sabotage me and harass me I treat them respectfully because law enforcement can snap their fingers and have anyone fired from CUNY in 1 second flat. 

Also, law enforcement throws money and connects around to people that run scams for them. 

When I was falsely arrested in Nassau County Long Island New York and charged with a misdemeanor that was knocked down to a violation I requested a bench trial (that I’m about to request in my CUNY lawsuit) and I represented myself. 

Who would take that strategy besides someone that knows how to respectfully navigate situations?
