Opinion: Today a Baruch College student was swinging his leg around to distract me during a speech I was giving in class.

Greetings Professor,

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. 

I would never say a word to a student in class if she/he literally poured a can of paint on my head. 

I would say thank you and walk away. Then I would report it. 

With that being said there was a student sitting directly across from me while I was giving the speech kicking his leg up and down for the majority of my speech and it was very distracting. 

I could have put my head down and just sat there and read the speech, but I believe that we are supposed to look at the crowd. 

I would never say a word to the student. 

If someone offered me a million dollars to identify the student right now, I would have no clue what the student looks like. I just saw the persons leg kicking nonstop throughout my speech. 

It caught me so off guard that it threw off my speech a little. 

I listened to the recording, and it was OK, but it would have been much better. 

I never had someone do that to me before when I was giving a speech. It was like the student was practicing to be a professional field goal kicker or soccer player. 

I started getting used to it by the end of the speech and going forward if it happens again, I’ll be more used to it. 

If I can go again, I would like to, if not it’s no big deal. I’m just asking. 

I 10000% respect your decision either way. 

Thank you and have a great day.

I wanted to go on record with what happened today in class. Personally, I’m a little surprised that the student felt comfortable doing that in front of all the other students knowing how much we all worked on preparing our speeches. 

It was like he was waiving his hand in my face during the speech except he was using his leg instead of his hand. It was very distracting. 

If you have any advice for me, please let me know. If not it’s no big deal. 

Currently I have a GPA and I think I have about 291 points out of 300 in the class right now. 

I know my subject inside and out, it’s about being a New York State real estate broker and I’m a licensed broker. 

I’ve been studying every day through spring break, and I was a little tired. When the person started swinging his leg around for the majority of my speech it totally knocked me off my game. 

Now that I have experienced the student swinging his leg around like he was trying out for the NFL during 70% of my speech, I can be prepared for it next time and focus on something else. 

More importantly than any of this is I always treat all students and staff with the utmost respect at all times. If someone does something I don’t like, I ignore the person. 

Please advise with any feedback you deem appropriate. 

Thank you and have a great day.

This type of thing happens all the time to me at Baruch College. I don’t blame Baruch College. I blame New York City law enforcement.

Opinion: NYC law enforcement is remotely accessing my laptop to harass me.

Disclaimers: Use this information at your own risk. If you have an emergency call 911. I’m not a computer expert. This is my opinion. I’m not a lawyer.

People I know pay NYC law enforcement (NYPD, etc.) to harass me every day. 

One of the things NYC law enforcement does is remotely access my laptop. 

NYC law enforcement has done this with a few different brand laptops on several different Wi-Fi connections. 

  1. NYC law enforcement sometimes slows down the Wi-Fi I’m on to any speed they want. I have no idea how they do it. I’m not saying they do it all on Wi-Fi. They do it on some. 
  2. NYC law enforcement can remotely shut down my laptop and it won’t turn on until they feel like it. I have about four laptops total, different brands. 
  3. NYC law enforcement will play around with the cursor. When I press the cursor, NYC law enforcement remotely flicks it around to harass me. 
  4. NYC law enforcement sends emails and messages from my email and social media accounts remotely. I believe that’s called impersonating me. 
  5. NYC law enforcement remotely accesses my emails in real-time. I’ll write a couple-sentence email. Before I press send, NYC law enforcement will remotely add spelling errors into my emails to make me look bad. NYC law enforcement also does this with documents. 

There is more. I’ll update later.

Opinion: My student loans and NYC law enforcement.

People I know are paying NYC law enforcement to try and sabotage me. NYC law enforcement doesn’t want me to get my student loans. If I’m correct, I believe my student loans are supposed to be direct deposited into my account anyday.

NYC law enforcment tried to set me up and lock me up, it didn’t work. NYC law enforcment was able to sabotage my money and I’ve been homeless for five years.

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.

Disclaimers: This is my opinion. If you have an emergency call 911.

How do I plan on spending my student loans?

I pay my phone bill months in advance.

I have tickets to pay. DMV and MTA.

New laptop.

Not one penny goes to anything besides being productive.

How does NYC law enforcement plan on trying to get me kicked out of college?

A few ways.

NYC law enforcement sends people in regular clothes, not uniform, to try and pick fights me with every day.

The number one way NYC law enforcement is trying to have me kicked out of Baruch College is a scam that was featured in the 1989 movie “Tango and Cash.”

NYC law enforcment has edited audio of me reporting them into new conversations. They are going to say my words were directed to students, staff, and professors at Baruch College.

Of course, NYC law enforcement will have as many witnesses as they think they need. Moreover, NYC law enforcement has people shove their phones in my face several times per day.

If anyone has any ideas how to legally deal with this please let me know.
