McAdams Lives - Continues to Take On Lovell
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:13:04 PM »
Per the WI Supreme Court decision, MU will reinstate McAdams. His most recent blog topics have covered current former MU student, Alex Ruiz, who has been expelled over a Snapchat post. Does MU have the right to expel students, yes. Did Ruiz's actions warrant such punishment? I do not believe so.

Will this result in another lawsuit against the university?

As long as they followed proper procedures they shouldn’t have a problem.

But they followed proper procedures in dismissing McAdams and the kangaroo court reinstated him anyways. So who knows?

Something tells me employment law is a bit more nuanced than education law. 

Don't know anything about this Ruiz case, but I've never heard of a student who successfully sued his/her university over arbitrary code of conduct enforcement (that didn't have elements of AA or EO).
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Well it seems like John will now take any opportunity to embarras Lovell any chance he gets. Unfortunately this could get nasty. It will be interesting if John will be able to teach any classes going forward as I'm not sure that is included in the settlement.

Quote
The photo in question, which was released to media, depicts Ruiz and three of his friends (none of whom are Marquette students) pointing an airsoft gun at a black doll alongside the caption, “Chuuch,” which Urban Dictionary defines as slang for “Amen.”

Ruiz told Campus Reform that the photo was taken in a different state years before he ever enrolled at Marquette, adding that the doll was not intended to have racial connotations, and was simply something that one of the boys was known to carry around with him regularly.

The boys referred to the doll as “Bill,” and Ruiz’s father described it to Campus Reform as being similar to “a troll which people carry around.”

A college student who carries a doll around with him in itself should get one expelled.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Not arguing that Ruiz has a strong case. As you have pointed out, MU probably has a lot of precedence to support the expulsion. Generally speaking, MU students are not entitled to many rights at all.

Given that the former student is an immigrant, seems like another bad publicity move in the court of public opinion.

No I don’t. He’s no longer a student.

And I will pretty much never shut up about how the Court screwed Marquette for political reasons. So let me preach the truth to you or ignore me. Your choice.

MU messed up in the first place.. then, after the Supreme Court opinion was released, took another misstep.

They will pay for it even more.

It's sad, but they need to shape up.

Bashing the individual with out knowing anything about him.

By contrast, we are learning a lot about Lovell. At the moment, he devalues our diplomas more than anyone.

Actually I know plenty about him. He's the type of person who thinks it's funny to send strangers a photo of him and his friends holding a gun to a black doll's head with the equivalent statement of "Amen."
Then he's stupid enough to think people will believe that a teenage boy regularly carried around a doll of a black child dressed to look like a gangster. I mean ... do you buy that? Did you have many high school friends who carried dolls? Of course not. Besides being stupid, Mr. Ruiz is a liar.

Anyhow, all that may not be enough to declare him a racist - and I haven't done that - but it's easily enough to say he's an idiot.

More plausible that the image was shared by multiple people over an extended time frame. Seems like you think that Snapchats are sent out to the masses at random (they are not). My understanding is the outcry to Lovell & Co. came from a small group of students (and faculty?) that did not even initially receive the Snapchat message. They saw it 2nd, 3rd, 4th hand etc.

Also, I'm not sure how old Ruiz is. If he is beyond 18 I would not characterize him as a "boy". As a student he may be beyond his teenage years, again, unsure. It seems like you are also unfamiliar with the ritual known as a "joke". We don't live in a vacuum, you can acknowledge that although you may lack it, sense of humor is subjective but exists. I'm not arguing the Ruiz is a great comic or "funny". I don't understand the point of the doll in the image in question either. The whole thing doesn't make sense and thus the joke just falls flat. Then again, I'm not the intended recipient of what was a private message.

Instead of this being a bad joke or just confusing... Marquette has decided to flex muscle and permanently banish Ruiz from campus. Does the crime fit the punishment? Not by my standards. MU has turned into a place where creative expression is completely unwelcome.

Marquette, stay because we hired you, leave because we fired you (for criticizing the administration)...no jokes allowed

Being racist is just a form of "creative expression" huh?  I guess whatever helps you sleep at night.

vandalism surely should warrant getting expelled from MU then too, eyn'a?

  how come he wasn't able to write a paper and then tell them that was too much cuz of stress of workload or something like those vandals back in 10/2016...free speech?  as some of ya'll say-'merica??


"They covered over the display board with their own pro-abortion signs and tore up the blue and pink flags planted in the ground (representing boy and girl babies who had been aborted).

How were they punished? Each of the vandals was required to write a three page paper explaining how they acted irresponsibly. Two students refused to do this (claiming it was finals week), and they were given a semester probation."

When put in simple terms, your logic is incredibly flawed. Racism = posing with a doll that is a different skin color? Lumping that person (or 4 people in this case) together with real racists is simply offensive. Do you not see the disconnect?

It's awesome that you didn't even read the account of what happened McAdams is relying upon (which I'm sure it totally unbiased) and yet you come here pontificating about how awful Marquette acted.

"Seems like you think that Snapchats are sent out to the masses at random (they are not)./"

From McAdams's blog:
Alex and friends were playing a “game” in which they would randomly scroll through their phones while the “Apple Airdrop” function was on, which allows photos to be sent to all nearby devices without specifying a recipient

So they sent this photo out to everyone near by without specifying who. that is the very definition of sending it out at random. In fact, McAdams goes on to write:
"Sending photos to random people who happen to be connected to the same Wi-Fi hotspot is pretty dumb."

"If he is beyond 18 I would not characterize him as a "boy""
From McAdams' blog:
The photo was shot almost two years ago, with Enrique and some of his high school buddies and members of his soccer team.  The black doll was owned by one of Enrique’s buddies; he carried it around a lot.

The doll was supposedly owned and carried around more than two years ago by a kid in high school. Not an 18-year-old college student. A boy.

I mean, one would think you would at least read what happened before you came here condemning anyone.

It shouldn’t be my choice. Honestly, your tactics are a great example of why I haven’t posted a lot of information on here I otherwise would have.

This board is supposed to be politics free, yet not only do you defy it, you announce your intentions.

Absolutely awful. Your type is the type that ignore rules and just shout, get in people’s faces, etc. (though not in person) and feel empowered by it. Sick.

I’m fine if Scoop wants to allow political commentary, but if based on the current rules people are allowed to say “eff the rules, I’ll be political!” and aren’t put on a timeout... yeeesh
