case western shut down
Your stupid and trivial and meaningless causes are not our causes and we’re fed up with you. It’s just a matter of what I consider (and you may disagree) to be good judgment during difficult times. We have unalienable rights (given to us by the Creator and not be able to taken away from us by man) to defend ourselves from both foreign and domestic emeries. It is interesting that the administration has decided to keep the campus community safe by bringing thousands of guns onto campus. I’m responding in order to let you know that I’m not in any way anti-police, and that I’m as worried about the safety of law enforcement officers as I am for anyone. With respect to this:”If students and faculty are too ignorant (or selfish) to understand these points, then they should not be students or faculty members at CWRU.”, This rhetoric is giving off the same stale stench as many xenophobic and backward comments do: “If you don’t like it here (i.e. Look at many recent events where there was a high police presence on university campuses during tense political moments — the University of Pittsburgh during the G20, for example, and UC Davis and UC Berkeley during the (peaceful) Occupy protests of 2011. What should scare everyone about you is your concern about police, the same police that protect your sorry azz about bringing guns in a dorm building, a then calling them paramilitary, really? Please, stop and think outside the confines of the CWRU campus. The contributor, who wishes to remain anonymous, teaches at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Last time I checked, this was a democratic cornerstone and as such often praised to be quintessentially “American”. And even if they are permitted to carry inside the dorms, so what? The housing on the other-hand is a mixed can of worms. It’s embarrassing. We are a part of this community, and felt a civic obligation to respond when asked.” Apparently “civic obligation” means catering to the interests of the powerful at the expense of the exploited. I’m guessing it’s a professor in gender or ethnic studies of some sort. The latest case is a Darwin woman in her 50s who tested positive on … They’re just being completely overhauled and compromised. [/blocktext]A week of cancelled classes may not sound too bad, but consider that the summer sessions last only eight weeks. The real reason there is the current state of America from failed leadership empowering criminals while demonizing law-abiding citizens trying to make a living and contribute to society. As a CWRU Student I would like to comment on my experiences during this period of time. This is too serious of an issue to me for any murkiness about the facts. Universities are however not-for-profit businesses. I live in the United States, and this is a totally irresponsible comment. I wonder if someone in Philadelphia will write a piece of crap like this when the DNC is held for Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, all faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates have been warned repeatedly that they should avoid campus during the week unless it is absolutely imperative that they be here. As for canceled classes regardless if case was housing people for the RNC or not they would still most likely be “canceling” clases due to the RNC beING in the city. The police will be there to protect lives and property – including that of Case Western. With the political and national security climate of the past couple weeks, naturally some students are concerned to live so close to peace officers. This gives us the time delay from an infection to become a diagnosed and counted case as the shutdown increased the social distance and lowered the number of new infections. But Snyder admitted that "in answering the city's convention request, we failed to give adequate consideration to the impact the decision would have on members of our community--in particular students staying in residence halls near the buildings housing the officers.". Changes to campus operations during RNC. Retail cashiers and employees do not live at Target. I would not have been surprised, therefore, if the university were to be shut down regardless of whether Barbara Snyder had chosen to host peace officers or not. As for officers being housed in the dorms, so what? Servers and other personnel at local restaurants do not live inside of strip malls. I saw it first hand. The University IS a business. "The deadly shootings last week in Louisiana, Minnesota and Texas have dramatically intensified our national conversation involving race, law enforcement and the best paths to justice, fairness and safety for all," she wrote. As for CWRU, they should have had the honesty to be honest. Just to provide a few examples. Only a profoundly stupid idiot would not understand the need for additional police and only a dickhead would throw himself behind the wheel and ‘protest’ against the 20 and 21st centuries. The terms “riot police” and “paramilitary” are grossly inaccurate to the point of being irresponsible. The majority of rapes and other violent crimes against students are committed by other students. Finally found something sensible in this juvenile article, even though it was an author’s follow-on comment. The police are being housed in unused dorms. No one is being expelled from their dorms. If my students learn nothing else from this failure of university leadership, I hope it will be this: that they will understand how their education exceeds the artificial boundaries of brick and mortar buildings, of tuition payments, of majors, minors, and gen ed requirements, and of their own abstracted desire to capitalize on their investment in the form of a lucrative career. You can’t accept that, because for you to admit there is evil, then there also has to be good, and where does good come from, our Creator, and you can’t admit there is a Creator. As the number of new coronavirus cases surges each day in many parts of the country, some states are hitting pause … This author is a real piece of shit. He should have stopped there. If Cleveland was hosting the democratic convention instead of the republican one, this would not be news. One of my brothers is a year from graduating. Case houses people every summer when students go on break and this summer is no exception. Mailing Address: 10900 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, OH 44106-4970 “I feel like I’m being forced out of the dorm that I paid for,” one student complained. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Case Western Reserve University, under fire by students and faculty for housing police on campus during the Republican National Convention, has decided to hold no classes, summer camps or other activities on campus from July 18-21. Imagine my surprise, then, when I learned that not only would CWRU be housing approximately 1,700 riot police in student dormitories during the Republican National Convention, that not only would those police be permitted to store their weapons in student dormitories, and that not only would widespread student opposition to this decision be placated with two milquetoast Q&A sessions – “opportunities to learn,” President Barbara Snyder called them – but that my colleagues and I, with only one week’s notice, would be expected to cancel a week of summer classes in order to accommodate the quartering of the paramilitary force descending on Cleveland to police the city during the convention. They’re just being completely overhauled and compromised. Where is the inclusivity and civic engagement in this move? In bivouacs set up on Malls A, B, and C, Voinovich Park and the Hall of Fame Plaza? It’s easy to sit in your office or dorm room and second guess and criticize what you know nothing about. It IS the same thing. And might I add, by effectively giving all the employees (staff, at least) 4 days paid vacation they’re likely to lose quite a lot of money at this point. Just like classes aren’t being cancelled. It’s faculty like you that make me feel appreciated, respected, valued, and protected as a student. If you need a quick explainer, Hotze and Woodfill put out a video explaining why they think the order is unconstitutional. The directive given the incoming officers was that they are NOT to bring their weapons into the dorms. Furthermore, weapons of any kind are prohibited in campus buildings (Every dorm has this notice banning all weapons), a policy which has apparently been lifted. The rest of us adults look at the ‘crazy mad’ that defines BLM, OWS, PETA, Earth First, Animal Rights, etc and we see in each and every one of those very very angry people the kind of people that get behind the wheel of a truck and set out to kill little things like rethuglicans. Not recognizing that is naive. And I now fear that my university campus is at a much greater risk of seeing something awful happen here, as well. Clearly, you are not someone who has ever taught a class or tried to instill in students the life of the mind and/or authentic civic engagement. As a student living on campus myself, I did not feel that the university was forcing me out of my dorm with their manner of communication. The attacker will himself shut down the machine forcefully after opening the case, so it just will happen a bit earlier. Umm, I sure you don’t understand reality. To put this into perspective, CWRU enrolled a total of 4,996 full time undergraduate students during the 2015-16 academic year. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Advance Local. We should not be obliged to do jack for the local or federal government! Students: Students who live on campus will receive help in finding another place to stay during the convention. In a democracy, we often do not agree with things that happen but need to listen. We have seen these terrorist organizations emboldened by imbecilic Democrat “leaders” for years. TBD. This piece, which so emphatically puts the students and their education first (as it should be! How is this different? I was at Case from 2005-2009. Thanks for the housing during RNC. We need to be reaching out and engaging our community, not bringing in a massive police presence that could very easily escalate tensions on campus and within University Circle and the surrounding area. Closing the university sends the wrong message to the community about our commitment to peaceful coexistence with and tolerance of people holding dissenting views or conflicting concerns. I’m sure many of you are arguing “well, if the police weren’t on our campus we wouldn’t have this problem.” Are you sure about that? This is the end result . I hope it opens us all up for discussions and empathy for others. The fact that you misrepresent this in your narrative is quite disconcerting and reeks of misdirection. A western Sydney primary school has been closed for cleaning after a student tested positive for COVID-19. My other workday activities will also be negatively affected. NOT from the police staying on our campus, because, let’s be honest, they are not here to harm you – they are here to protect the protesters at the RNC. And, a University is absolutely a business, to say otherwise is quite naive. Grow up and try to adjust to a few inconveniences for one lousy week. Jobs love us. Also, the writer deliberately lies to her readers when making the patently false statement that firearms will be stored in the dorms. And if something did happen to someone on campus – a student, staff or faculty member – what would you do then? Postal service employees cannot work from home FedEx and UPS truck drivers cannot work from home Servers and other personnel at local restaurants cannot work from home Retail cashiers and employees cannot work from home Cultural venues will be open and staff – employees cannot work from home Get it? President Donald Trump's plan to sue Pennsylvania in federal court to determine how the state conducts mail-in voting has been effectively shut down by a US district court judge. The City and/or the Feds likely gave CWRU little choice over opening their dorms for this purpose, and I’m sure others were put in the same position. Do we want it broadcast all over the world that the city of Cleveland was ill prepared to host such an event? Until that time, ARNG units and personnel fall under the command of each state’s government. Another student observed: “I’ve been given 24 hours to decide where I am going to live next week. There are several points in this comment that I wish you’d made in the original article, but mainly I think venting about the inconvenience to you and the students, rather than about the target CWRU now has on it, diluted the real issue, at least in my opinion. My students (who will eventually be alumni like you) are far smarter than me. This was the first new case in 19 days for the state. Postal service do not live at the post office. On 17 May, Victoria announced two further business sites had been shut down due to a suspected case at each. Just take a moment to re-read that last sentence and think about what it actually says.
