Prof charged with sending threats to herself over cancellation of degree program

An Australian professor has been charged with implementing a bogus harassment campaign against herself following the controversial cancellation of a degree program.

Dianne Jolley, a professor of environmental chemistry and toxicology at the University of Technology Sydney, allegedly sent threatening letters to herself between May and September as a protest against abolition of the degree in traditional Chinese medicine, university officials believe.

According to Stuff.com, Jolley, who’s also the school’s Dean of Science, claimed that in addition to the letters, various articles of clothing had been sent to her … had clothes stolen from her backyard.

As a result, “significant security measures” were put in place to protect the professor. But after an investigation by Sydney Police, officials ended up charging Jolley with “obtaining a financial advantage by deception, giving false information about a person or property in danger, and making false representations resulting in a police investigation.”

Jolley attorney Aaron Kerneghan said his client would plead “not guilty” to all charges.

Justice for Juicy now is Justice for Jolley.

I hope they make her pay pay the costs incurred due to her lies and jail her for it as well. Fake hate crimes are actually hate crimes and should be treated the same way.

as a protest against abolition of the degree in traditional Chinese medicine

I wonder whether they offer a degree in traditional (i.e. pre-modern) Western medicine. Galen, the four-humors theory, bleeding, and all that. I rather doubt it. So why one for a medical system equally founded on mythology?

Has a conservative ever been accused of faking hate crimes against himself?

Was she tenured?
That is one way that Universities can get rid of tenured professors is to eliminate their department.

    What do you mean by “was”? There’s nothing in this story to indicate that she’s been fired. I assume she’s tenured and still very much employed. She was merely upset that a degree course had been cancelled, presumably because her SJW soul was offended at the inherent racism of dismissing an entire “branch of medicine” just because it’s complete nonsense.
