College puts professor who tweeted about teaching ‘future dead cops’ on administrative leave

A New York professor who tweeted that instruction “prospective deceased cops” is a “urgency” — provoking outrage in town’s authorities leaders — has been put on administrative leave on Saturday by his employer.

Michael Isaacson, an adjunct professor at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice and self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist, was disciplined because of the three-week-old tweet that caught fire following Isaacson’s Thursday appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight. ” His Aug. 23 tweet stated:

A number of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist instruction at John Jay College but I think it’s a chance to educate future deceased cops

“Michael Issacson harbors total disdain for its active and future police officers that he teaches at John Jay College,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, stated in a Friday press release.

John Jay College President Karol V. Mason called Isaacson’s remarks “abhorrent” and also the “antithesis” of an academic institution that trains prospective law enforcement in a announcement. Though she stated that professors have a right to free speech and academic freedom, “expressions of hatred or intimidation are not welcome in that civil discourse.”

Roy Richter stated the tweet is & ldquo; & ldquo duty as a civilized human being & rdquo; and an abdication of the professor & rsquo; disgusting, since Fox News mentioned. ”

“I’m appalled that anybody associated with John Jay, together with our proud history of encouraging law enforcement police, could imply that violence against authorities is ever okay,” Mason stated in her announcement.

Mason said that students and faculty members had been threatened as a result of rsquo & Isaacson;he had been put on leave for security reasons, and s conversation.

Within an email to The Washington Post, ” Isaacson stated he “unequivocally” supports the faculty’s decision “in the interest of public security,” and he apologizes to faculty members and his students for placing them in danger.

While college officials examine the issue Isaacson will remain on administrative leave, Mason explained.

Law enforcement officials weighed in.  

As a 2x graduate there, I understand Michael Isaacson’s reprehensible values don’t signify @JohnJayCollege, #NYC, #NYPD or families of murdered cops

New York City will not stand for Michael Isaacson’s vile rhetoric and neither should John Jay College.
