Judge refuses to cave to SJW pressure campaign, reinstates male student at Brown U.

Judge refuses to cave to SJW pressure campaign, reinstates male student at Brown U.

Judge William E. Smith suggested students didn’t understand basic civics.

A male student at Brown University was accused of sexual misconduct and some students led a pressure campaign on the judge to find him guilty. Luckily, the judge resisted and drew his conclusions based on the facts.

The Washington Post reported:

Judge reinstates Brown Univ. student accused of sexual misconduct, blasts ‘organized’ pressure to get him not to

A federal judge has reinstated a Brown University student after finding that the Ivy League school in Providence, R.I., improperly judged him responsible for sexual misconduct.

The case was yet another example of the stresses confronted by colleges and universities, whose methods of adjudicating such cases have increasingly come under heavy fire for being too aggressive toward the accused, even as they are being pressured for not being aggressive enough.

Indeed, the Brown case underscored how that tension has spread: It included an organized campaign by students supportive of the woman who brought the charge to pressure the judge into ruling against the man she had accused.

The campaign took the form of a widely circulated post urging people to email Chief Judge William E. Smith of the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island, telling him that reinstating the student would be “morally unjust to the survivor” and create a “public safety hazard” for Brown women.

The judge ultimately responded to the pressure campaign by saying:

[The court]…Is an independent body and must make a decision based solely on the evidence before it. It cannot be swayed by emotion or public opinion. After the preliminary injunction, this Court was deluged with emails resulting from an organized campaign to influence the outcome. These tactics, while perhaps appropriate and effective in influencing legislators or officials in the executive branch, have no place in the judicial process. This is basic civics, and one would think students and others affiliated with a prestigious Ivy League institution would know this. Moreover, having read a few of the emails, it is abundantly clear that the writers, while passionate, were woefully ignorant about the issues before the Court.

A Brown University student named Alex Volpicello wrote the post mentioned above at The Tab:

Why we need to stop the student convicted of sexual assault coming back to Brown

As you’ve probably heard by now, a Brown student suspended for sexual assault could resume classes this year.

The university found John Doe – as he is known in court documents – responsible for assaulting a female student in a storage room, and suspended him for two years. But Rhode Island District Court Judge William Smith has lifted the suspension, saying the student “will suffer irreparable harm if his suspension remains in place and he is unable to start the fall semester.” He has issued a temporary restraining order for John Doe against Brown, allowing him back with full privileges at least until the final decision is issued, if not indefinitely. The student he assaulted is still on campus.

That’s why I’m asking for your help today, with five minutes of your time…

I implore you to take five minutes to send an email to the judge and the Clerk’s Office. Share this post, and write the email. There is power and solidarity in numbers.

In this case, “solidarity in numbers” is a euphemism for an intimidating mob.

Does this remind you of the pressure that was put on Lester Holt to not let Trump off the hook, as the left accused Matt Lauer of doing during NBC’s commander in chief forum?

How about the pressure that was put on Supreme Court Justice John Roberts during the hearing on Obamacare a few years ago?

It should. It’s the same thing.

They should call this case Brown versus the Right to Education

Americans are resisting the Pro-Choice doctrine of guilty until aborted or proven innocent.

I implore you to take five minutes to strike a blow against “diversity and inclusiveness.” We can not have this person who is “not like us” to remain on campus. Share this post, write the email, and show your xenophobia. There is power and solidarity in numbers.

Billy Clinton would be welcomed if he showed up I’ll bet.

There is no depth to which the SJW will not sink in embarrassing their elite institutions, themselves, their role models, and their families.

I mean NONE… Jeeeeeepers….

And THIS is why I advocate FOR due process.

    All too often – if not in the overwhelming majority of these cases – the SJWs are in fact empowered and encouraged by the administrations and faculties of these “elite institutions.” Who, then, is the source of the embarrassment (which, sadly, seems to have little of its traditional beneficial effect in modifying behavior): the impressionable youth acting with impetuous foolishness, or the institutions which inspire them to act out their follies?

This is actually a peculiar case. It’s not a criminal case, but suit for breach of contract. The issue seems to be violation of a code of student behavior; a code which did not exist at the time of the alleged offense. The Constitutional impediments to ex post facto laws apply to the federal government, but it’s not clear just how they apply to Brown U administration policy.

I don’t think I’d want to hang my hat on this case no matter how it turns out.

The Brown students submitted animus briefs.

With the closure of mental institutions, college campuses have apparently become havens for the mentally ill. There they are free and rewarded for mob action and delusional behavior.

    Actually universities and colleges, indeed our entire education system, are factories for creating mental illness. If you were to go to a psychiatrist for help getting over a phobia the psychiatrist would desensitive you by exposing you to the object of your phobia. Schools now follow the the opposite course of action by teaching students to have phobias, irrational fears about hearing the wrong thoughts expressed. Schools condition students to believe they really will be irreparably traumatized if they hear the “triggering” words that touch on their phobias, and it’s the job of teachers and administrators to provided them with “safe spaces” where wrongthink and crimespeak are not allowed.

“students didn’t understand basic civics”
That is an ignorance that the education establishment has been working for decades to achieve.

The equating of mob justice with democratic will in anything related to governance is probably the most sickening and dangerous thing these spineless indoctrination centers have imparted to generation snowflake.

This is what federal lawsuits are for.

“There is power and solidarity in numbers.”

Fascism summed up in one simple sentence.
