Opinion: I’m about to sue The City University of New York again. July 26, 2022.

 653 total views

I always treat all staff, professors, and students at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times.

I never mention a word about the lawsuit to anyone at Baruch College.

There is no animosity attached to the lawsuit.

In my opinion, people I know pay New York City law enforcement to harass and sabotage me.

New York City goes behind the scenes at Baruch College and many other places and sabotages me. That’s why I’m suing.

I’m not an attorney. I’m representing myself. I plan on filing the lawsuit on my 46th birthday. August 15, 2022.

I would never do anything to jeopardize my great standing at Baruch College. I’m on the Dean’s List right now.

I’m utilizing the courts to present my case to a judge and have her or him decide if my claims have merit.

Baruch College has done a lot to help me. For example, in one month I’m about to receive about $5,000 in my bank account to pay my bills for the year.

The money is from student loans. The only reason I’m receiving the funds is because I’m a student at Baruch College.

Do you know how much money $5,000 is to a person that is living in the street homeless?

It’s a lot.

I’m on public assistance or welfare. I receive about $600 per month to live on.

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record.

In my opinion, people I know paid New York City law enforcement to sabotage my web marketing clients and now I’m homeless.

I have places to shower. I have a storage room to keep my belongings. I have clean clothes. I don’t think I look homeless. Albeit, I live in the streets.

The money from the welfare office keeps me alive.

The money from student loans allows me to have a laptop, phone, warm clothes, and more.

I would never jeopardize that.

In my spare time I’m trying to find new web marketing clients and launch startups.

Thanks to the skills I’ve learned at Baruch College I believe I’ll be rich and famous.

New York City law enforcement pays Baruch College students to try and pick fights with me and I ignore them.

I don’t care what anyone does to me at Baruch College, you will never hear a negative word out of me there.

I sued Baruch College once before and I lost. This is going to be the second lawsuit.

I have learned a lot at Baruch College. I love Baruch College.

The reason I’m suing is there are a few things that I have questions about that I only believe can be answered with the involvement of the New York Court of Claims.

This way I don’t have to directly ask anyone that works at Baruch College. I can pose my questions to the court and Baruch College attorneys. The answers will be part of the court record.

If someone at Baruch College tries to sabotage me on the request of New York City law enforcement I don’t take it personal. I’m not upset with them.

In my view, New York City law enforcement can have anyone at Baruch College fired.

I would like to publicly thank everyone at the Bursar’s office, Financial Aid office, CUNY Edge, Dean’s Office, and all the professors. They are doing a great job

My lawsuit against Bruch College has nothing to do with the staff. The staff treats me like gold.

This lawsuit is about New York City law enforcement threatening people behind the scenes like they always do to sabotage me.

If you are thinking about college I recommend starting at a CUNY community college. They are awesome.

Again, I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. I highly recommend Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York.

Opinion: Email to Baruch College about summer classes, HRA, and the police harassing me. June 5, 2022.

 1,177 total views

Greetings Baruch College,

I’ve had dozens of conversations with the police and FBI about many of the topics covered in the class I’m taking this summer (phone records attached). 

I have never and will never mention a word about the police harassing me in any Baruch College class. 

I’m never saying a negative word about anything in any Baruch College class. 

I’m only going to speak positively about the government, courts, and laws in class. 

I’m not mentioning a negative word about the defamation laws that I have complained about to law enforcement dozens of times outside of school. 

I’m strictly positive and professional in my classes. 

I never mention a word about my personal life. I never mention a word that is negative. 

You said only to contact you if I have any issues at Baruch College. 

You told me not to contact the Chancellor and not to contact the Baruch College President. I haven’t and I won’t. 

New York City law enforcement just tried to run a nice scam on me tomorrow morning. 

New York City law enforcement sabotages me at HRA all the time. I never mentioned 1 word about it to the CUNY Edge office and I never will. 

I just coincidentally received an email today that I have to interview with HRA or my welfare case is going to be closed. 

Normally I would go running down to the HRA office on 14 St tomorrow morning. I would be waiting outside at 7 AM and be one of the first in. The police know that. 

New York City law enforcement has people tear me to pieces on the welfare line on 14 St. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence. 

I believe the police have people blow weed smoke in my face and harass me the entire time I’m on the welfare line waiting to get in. 

I’m not going tomorrow because it’s my first summer class. 

I’m not going to be harassed for two hours nonstop, while simultaneously people are blowing weed smoke in my face. Then I’ll show up to my first Zoom class high on weed after being harassed for two hours nonstop. That has happened to me so many times I lost count. 

I’ll go to HRA on Wednesday when I don’t have a class and the police can harass me all morning on my day off from school. 

Tomorrow morning I’m going to show up to Baruch College at 7 or 8 AM. I’m going to find a nice place to sit or stand in clear view of a security camera. I’m going to relax and start studying for class. 

Tomorrow during class I’m going to keep my mouth shut. If I’m called on or if I feel like participation is necessary I will be positive and professional. 

I will speak like the Baruch College President and the Chancellor are going to be sent a video of the class. 

This is the email I coincidentally received from HRA just now:

The due date for your Cash Assistance case with case number ending in 898H is approaching. If you do not complete the interview on 06/14/2022 your case may close. Log in to your ACCESS HRA account at nyc.gov/ACCESSHRA to submit your recertification.

You can update your notification preferences at any time by logging into ACCESS HRA and selecting “Update” on your ‘Profile’ page.

No one from HRA ever called, HRA said we don’t have to go in, HRA said they probably won’t even interview me.

Coincidentally I received this email the day before class begins. 

If I show up to HRA tomorrow morning, which I’m not, New York City law enforcement will chew me up and spit me out. 

I’m getting off to a great start for the summer semester. I’m not letting them do it and I’m not going to HRA until Wednesday. 

I’m about to email the Commissioner of HRA’s office about it right now too. 

After the police sabotage my HRA case over and over which is well documented, the Commissioner’s Office cleans it up. 

Thank you and have a great day.

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. I never participate in controversial conversations at Baruch College out of respect for people’s feelings. I love Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York. My goal is to pass. Grades are not my priority. I’m at CUNY to learn. I have been living in the street homeless for five years so it’s a miracle that I’m able to attend college. I don’t care if someone at Baruch College pours a can of paint on my head, I have never and will never say a disrespectful word to anyone at Baruch College under any circumstances. I’m walking on eggshells trying to go from homeless to home. In my spare time I’m cold calling hedge funds trying to launch startups and I promote myself on the Internet. Hopefully one day soon I can get back into an apartment. I believe in giving back even with my current situation living in the street homeless. One of the best things the government does in my opinion in addition to CUNY is the New York State Real Estate Salesperson’s License. During the last two decades, I have recommended thousands of people who are living check to check in New York City and the tri-state to obtain the license. 

Opinion: Email to the Human Resources Administration. 5/2/2022.

Greetings Human Resources Administration,

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times.

Treating everyone at HRA respectfully is more important than anything.

Thank you very much for the help. If it wasn’t for HRA I would have starved to death by now.

On 4/11/2022 I sent a perfectly clear copy of my storage bill to HRA via the mobile app.

My case number is X.

It seems that every month I submit my storage bill to HRA, it doesn’t get paid until I send an email to the Commissioner Department of Social Services.

I can’t imagine that every person who is having a storage room paid by HRA has to email the commissioner every month or visit HRA in person every month to have their storage room paid.

That would create an insane amount of unnecessary work for HRA.

Can someone please look into why this is happening to me every month?

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: NYC law enforcement is threatening HRA to hold back my welfare MetroCard like they have done several times before. 

 960 total views

If you’re not on welfare, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. 

People I know pay NYC law enforcement (NYPD, etc.) to harass, sabotage, tease, attack, and rob me. 

Disclaimers: Use this information at your own risk. Results are not guaranteed. Verify everything yourself. All information is subject to change. If you have an emergency call 911. 

I was providing web marketing services to companies and NYC law enforcement chased away several of my clients. 

Now I’m homeless and on welfare. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. 

The NYC welfare office (HRA) or public assistance office gives me money for a MetroCard because I go to college. 

Now for some reason, HRA stopped giving me the money for my MetroCard. Therefore I have to take the money out of the little money I have for food to buy a MetroCard every week because I’m not going to jump the turnstile. 

I suspect NYC law enforcement is the reason that HRA isn’t giving me my MetroCard money. NYC law enforcement runs around to every government agency I interact with and tries to sabotage me. 

Regardless if HRA helps NYC law enforcement sabotage me or not, I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

This is a letter I’m about to email to the Department of Social Services Commissioner. 

Greetings Commissioner, 

HRA saved my life and is still saving it. Thank you. 

I always treat all staff of HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’m a full-time student at Baruch College, The City University of New York. 

In addition to HRA being very helpful, the CUNY Edge office is great as well. If I’m correct I believe that HRA has all the necessary documentation from Baruch College, The City University of New York to confirm that I’m a full-time student. 

People I know from Long Island pay the top NYC law enforcement (NYPD) to run around and try and sabotage my every move. They are the reason I’m homeless. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t date. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. I’m just broke because NYC law enforcement robbed me and I have bad credit. 

I suspect the reason I’m not receiving the MetroCard money is that as usual NYC law enforcement is threatening the person at HRA in charge of sending the MetroCard money and telling the person not to send it. 

That is why I’m contacting you, the Commissioner. 

I don’t take it personally. I’m not upset. 

Please help. If you require any additional information from me please let me know. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: NYC law enforcement is running the controlled customers scam on me.

 203 total views

People I know pay NYC law enforcement to harass me every day. They chased away several of my web marketing clients, and now I’ve been homeless in NYC for about five years. 

I can’t move into a homeless shelter because that makes it easier for NYC law enforcement to harass me. Therefore I live in the street. I have a place to shower, keep clean clothes, etc. I’m on public assistance. 

Quick disclaimers: If you have an emergency, call 911. This is all my opinion. Use this information at your own risk. Verify everything yourself. 

NYC law enforcement has billions of dollars. In my opinion, they have very little oversight. When you have billions of dollars, you can run serious scams if that’s how you choose to spend the money.

One of the many scams that NYC law enforcement runs on me is the controlled customer scam. 

Before I get into it, one more thing. NYC law enforcement has people who work from them in regular clothes harass me every day. They shove their phones in my face, they tease me, they harass me, and they crash into me.  I’m used to it. I never react at all. 

I have reported NYC law enforcement to several government agencies nationwide and I’m waiting to hear back. 

I have a small storage room in Midtown Manhattan. NYC law enforcement made me homeless and now they want my clothes in the garbage, not a storage room. 

NYC law enforcement has members of their regular clothes scam team renting storage rooms at the place where I have my storage. 

Members of NYC law enforcement’s scam team have tried to pick fights with me, start conversations with me, harass me, block me from walking, etc., at the storage place. All I do is ignore them and walk away. 

Today I went to my gym to take a shower. Someone went into my backpack last night and stole the lock I use for my gym locker. I went to my storage place to pick up an extra lock. When I showed up at the storage place there were a few members of NYC law enforcement’s scam team on location. 

I say to myself, what could the scam be this time? NYC law enforcement has people pretend “he’s selling drugs,” “he’s doing drugs,” “he’s stalking girls,” “he’s a thief,” and many other scams. 

Just for the record, I don’t have a criminal record, and I don’t do anything illegal. I’m on welfare. I have a small amount of money for food and a little more for some necessities. 

Today, I suspect NYC law enforcement scam is the “he smells” scam. I shower every day. I wash my clothes at laundromats. I showered yesterday, and I’m about to shower in a few minutes. If you saw me right now, you would not think I’m homeless. If you look at my social media, you can see what I look like or the about page on this website. 

NYC law enforcement has people follow me into many stores and places I go just to make up lies and try to get me kicked out. 

I hope the whole world finds out what NYC law enforcement is up to one day, and it stops. I hope one day NYC law enforcement protects people and stops running scams. 

If there is any doubt that some percentage of NYC law enforcement runs scams, do a quick search in your favorite search engine and see what you find. 

I never mention a word of this to anyone at Baruch College-CUNY, where I go to college. 

Opinion: Email to the Commissioner of NYC Social Services office about my storage room.

Greetings Commissioner Department of Social Services,

First and foremost, thank you and your stellar staff for the help you provide for me and so many others. HRA saved my life. I will never forget that. 

I will always act accordingly whenever I interact with any and all staff from HRA. Regardless of what’s going on and how anyone treats me, good or bad, I always treat everyone at HRA with the absolute utmost respect at all times. 

I’m not sure why but for some reason the check for my storage company never arrived this month. I have a little storage room that costs $50 per month. 

I live in the street homeless so that storage room is a lifesaver. The best thing about my storage room is that I have 24 hours per day access to my belongings. 

I uploaded the bill from my storage company into the HRA app on October 21, 2021, and again on October 30, 2021 just in case there was a technical error. 

I used to provide the storage bill once per year. Then HRA changed the process. Now HRA requires that I upload the bill once per month. 

I believe the cut-off for my storage company to receive the bill is November 10, 2021. If the bill isn’t paid by then I’m going to have to take my food money to pay the bill. 

I could easily survive with the amount of food money you give me per month if I was in an apartment. What makes it challenging is being street homeless. Specifically, not having anywhere to cook or store food drives up the cost for me and I’m sure others. 

Thanks to HRA and Baruch College / CUNY I’m getting an education. Hopefully, new doors and opportunities will open up if I stay focused. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. All I do is focus on being productive. 

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me. My access HRA account says I don’t have another certification until June 2022. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Opinion: Email to my Baruch College professors about being street homeless in regards to student groups.

 162 total views

Greetings Professor,

First of all, I wanted to thank you for your consideration both last semester and this semester. I understand you have a lot of students, and you have always gone above and beyond to help me succeed in your classes. I understand the importance of student groups towards learning how to interact with others and that it’s mandatory. 

In regards to tomorrow’s student pairs, I have one quick question.

I was thinking about when I was in school two or three decades ago. Back then, I knew a lot of students and their parents. In my humble opinion, there are a lot of students and their parents that would not want their child being in pairs with street homeless people. My parents would not have approved of my brother and I being in groups with street homeless people. 

I’m not sure if there is anyone who would approve of their child being placed in pairs at school with street homeless people. Albeit, I would like the decision to be up to the students if possible. 

I just wanted to go on the record and say I am not embarrassed at all about being street homeless. I’ve been homeless for five years or longer. My main goal is to get a roof back over my head. I’m past the point of embarrassment. 

The reason I bring this up is that it would make me feel more comfortable if you ask the class if anyone doesn’t mind being in a pair with a street homeless person. Of course, it’s your class and I’ll gladly follow any instructions you provide. I just thought I’d mention it to you here. 

I’m respectfully going to let the person in my pair tomorrow know that I live in the street during the interview. This way if someone sees me around town sleeping on a subway platform or something like that, they aren’t surprised. 

I’m used to being street homeless, although it gets a little wild living in the streets of Midtown Manhattan, especially these days. I plan to use the writing skills I’ve learned in your classes to share my experiences one day. 

Even though I’ve made it very clear that I would have preferred to maintain my privacy from students, I assure you that I will act like I’m on an interview to get a job at The New York Times tomorrow. During the student pairs, I will be concise, serious, professional, and courteous. 

Thank you and have a great day.  

Ever upward, 

Mark Pine

CUNY Student Number #

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

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

Treating people respectfully is more important than anything.

I never participate in controversial conversations at Baruch College out of respect for people’s feelings.

I love Baruch College and The City University of New York. It’s the best opportunity ever.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I was able to pay my phone bill over a year in advance. It’s one thing to be homeless. It’s another thing to be homeless without a smart phone. Being homeless without a smart phone is like living in the 1990’s and earlier.

Could you imagine being homeless, sleeping in a chair on the subway platform, and reading newspapers in bad light? Not my idea of the best time ever.

Being homeless with an smart phone is endless possibilites, ability to study, entertainment, etc. I have a student YouTube premium account so I can watch videos for school off line and without commercials. It’s great.

Not only do I have a smart phone but I have a Samsung A52 5G. If that’s not enough I have insurance with a $100 deductable so I can lose my phone three times per year and get a new phone. I’ve been robbed several times in the subway so the insurance works for me.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I have laptops. I love my laptops.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I was able to buy winter clothes so I don’t freeze this winter when I’m sleeping in chairs on the subway platforms in Midtown Manhattan. I tried the homeless shelters, I prefer to be homeless on my own terms instead of at those places.

I’m not going to mention the clothing companies name here, although they have a free repair policy. Anytime I have an issue with my clothes, I can mail them to the company and they fix them for free. It’s the best deal.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I was able to pay almost all the tickets I received from the MTA in the subway. Now when members of NYPD transit run my name I don’t have subway tickets from 2018 and before on my record. The transit police are always very nice to me. Now when they run my name they will see that I’m following the rules and paying my tickets. That’s respect.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I have credibility. Instead of being a street homeless person in the welfare job program, I’m a college student at Baruch College. Albeit, a homeless colllege student.

I already applied for jobs at almost every restaurant and retail store in the city and they didn’t hire me. I’m not sure if it’s becasue of my credit, age (45), etc. Also, I tell everyone I’m homeless. I’m not going to lie about it. Long story short, no retail company wanted to hire me. That means I have to sit around the welfare job program every day. Phone doesn’t work up there. No access to a computer. No WiFi. People crashing into me all day long.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I’m becoming a 10X better entreprenur.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I learned how the government interacts with private industry.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I learned about how this country was formed. Before Baruch College I had no clue.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York learned about my carbon footprint.

My life is like a video game. The game is to go from homeless to home. That’s what I’m trying to do. I have bad credit and evictions on my record.

On a positive note, I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. I believe with the platform that CUNY is providing for me that I will have a roof over my head before I graduate.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I filed my taxes. I’ve been homeless for years. I wasn’t filing my taxes. The amazing, super helpful, caring, and stellar financial aid office at LaGuardia Community College advised me to file my taxes. It feels great to have filed my taxes. I thought I was going to jail for not paying my taxes. It turns out that the IRS is very nice. I went to the IRS office at 290 Broadway in Manhattan. I filed a bunch of back tax returns and it turns out I don’t owe that much. At least not enough for the IRS to lock me up. I filed my New York State taxes too.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I receive food stamps, cash assistance, health insurance, and storage to keep clean clothes.

Thanks to Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York I have a place to shower. Not at school. A place I was able to pay for. A nice place.

My goal is to attend Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY or another CUNY graduate school after I graduate from Baruch College.

In my spare time, I’m working on charitable and entrepreneurial ventures. I am working on raising money from professional accredited investors to create a nonprofit that will help people obtain state-issued licenses. For example, a real estate salesperson’s license. I have to consult with attornies and make sure it’s legal.

I’m also working on trying to create several entertainment and media-based projects. For example, a broadway show, television, and movie project about digital identity theft. For example, people editing audio of innocent victims into new conversations to get them in trouble. People editing videos of innocent victims to set them up. People using video cameras to sabotage victims. People erasing evidence. People impersonating others with email and social media.

It’s all about the ways people are using digital technologies to sabotage innocent victims. I would like to create awareness to try and help people.

When I started school, decades ago, we used pensils, paper, and typewriters. I don’t even remember having a typewriter at home. I wrote my homework by hand. I’m enjoying school a lot more now with the technology. It’s a lot more fun. The technology is allowing me to learn valuable information.
