well there is one college grad who won't be burdened with student loans.

So, he didn't want to show his ID because he might not get free food that he wasn't entitled to.

Worked at a college. Students are stupid and easy prey. They need security asking questions because the students are always the first to whine when something bad happens. Every student always thinks they are going to change the world because life hasn't beat the shiat out of them yet.

It's the parents who are completely and totally paranoid, and will freak out if they hear any stories about crime on campus.

Occasionally I have to visit college campuses for business.   At all the local colleges security is incredibly tight.  I.....a middle-aged white guy, have to set up an appointment, get a day pass at the security office and be escorted to the office in question or told where I may and may not walk (student dorms are always off limits).    I have no sympathy for this entitled Ivy League asswipe.

Holy shiat, you're right.  I'm surprised they stopped at just holding him down.  Clearly they should have shot him at least once, possibly twice to make sure.  Eating food?  No sir, not on their watch.

My wife is a prof at a local uni, and no one says anything but "Hi!" when I come in to water her plants at 11:00 p.m. when she's away.

A few taser bursts to the abdomen will kill his appetite and he won't want no free food after that.

Gee, when I'm standing at the guard shack, there are people just walking by without showing ID.  They must be profiling me!   Yup, they are profiling white dudes with grey facial hair.  Next time I'll start screaming like a little biatch.  Oh, yanno, maybe those people who are walking past the guard shack are KNOWN to the guard, so no need to check IDs.  I figured that out all by myself and I'm not a narcissistic piece of shiat.

Er, I water her plants very rarely, when she flies back to visit her family once every two years or so. The staff and guards change often and don't know me.

Racial profiling is a real thing.  People are stopped, harassed....or worse....who were doing nothing illegal, and had every right to be where they were.  This drama biatch was out looking to provoke an incident.  Fark him.

So the I'm getting profiled at the local schools because I don't look metrosexual enough?
 
2019-04-15 09:19:24 AM  
Whenever I see an "outrage clip" like this, just a few seconds long, I wonder about the context.

Did they just walk up to him, ask for his ID, and then pin him, or was it several minutes of "may we please see your ID, because someone told us you weren't a student here?" - followed by him giving a long and crazy rant about not having to show his ID?

I don't shave often or carefully enough to be seen as metrosexual.

Let's be honest...your average white student would have shown his/her ID, at which point the cops would have said "meh.". Odds are, if the POC had shown his ID, the cops would have said "meh.". Obviously, the cops aare racist...

shiat! I didn't know my white privilege exempted me from showing my ID when it was requested. The next time a cop pulls me over and asks for my license I'll remind him white people don't have to provide it.

McNab has a different term for what's happening with the officers: paid vacation.

This is probably one of the more misunderstood concepts in labor relations.  Administrative leave happens while an investigation is taking place; it is not a punishment in and of itself, just an acknowledgement that something questionable has happened and that some distance is in order while things get sorted out.  If the investigation shows that the employee engaged in acts that warrant discipline, some or all of that paid administrative time could be entered into a personnel file as a suspension, with forward pay being docked until the suspension is satisfied. If termination is carried out, many employers have processes in their personnel rules to recover payments made during the administrative leave - though that can be difficult, blood from a stone and that money is already spent, but if an employer really wants to turn the screws on a terminated ex-employee they'll get a judgement against them and send them to collections.

The idea is that if A)your employee is ineligible to work until the thing is sorted out, and B)after your monthlong investigation concludes a one week suspension is in order, then C) it is inappropriate to not pay your employee during that month, and then give him 3 weeks back pay after he already missed his rent and utility bills.

Everyone should be entitled to eat when someone is giving away the food.  Don't let it go to waste.

aagrajag: I May Be Crazy But...: Fissile: aagrajag: Fissile: aagrajag: Fissile: aagrajag: Fissile: Thrakkorzog: Worked at a college. Students are stupid and easy prey. They need security asking questions because the students are always the first to whine when something bad happens. Every student always thinks they are going to change the world because life hasn't beat the shiat out of them yet.

It's the parents who are completely and totally paranoid, and will freak out if they hear any stories about crime on campus.

Occasionally I have to visit college campuses for business.   At all the local colleges security is incredibly tight.  I.....a middle-aged white guy, have to set up an appointment, get a day pass at the security office and be escorted to the office in question or told where I may and may not walk (student dorms are always off limits).    I have no sympathy for this entitled Ivy League asswipe.

Holy fark, that's crazy.

My wife is a prof at a local uni, and no one says anything but "Hi!" when I come in to water her plants at 11:00 p.m. when she's away.

Gee, when I'm standing at the guard shack, there are people just walking by without showing ID.  They must be profiling me!   Yup, they are profiling white dudes with grey facial hair.  Next time I'll start screaming like a little biatch.  Oh, yanno, maybe those people who are walking past the guard shack are KNOWN to the guard, so no need to check IDs.  I figured that out all by myself and I'm not a narcissistic piece of shiat.

Er, I water her plants very rarely, when she flies back to visit her family once every two years or so. The staff and guards change often and don't know me.

So the I'm getting profiled at the local schools because I don't look metrosexual enough?

Possibly?

I don't shave often or carefully enough to be seen as metrosexual.

Is that still a word? I haven't heard metrosexual for ten years.

I keep getting stopped at the guard shack, there must be some reason they are profiling me.  You think it's the AK-47, suicide vest and the turban?

That might do it.  You could hurt someone with that turban.

But seriously, what the hell college are you visiting that is a gated community?  I've visited, attended or worked at a lot and never seen anything like what you're describing.

Except for dorms.  Dorms have some form of security.

Is this new, or American?

When my wife was going to uni and lived in a dorm, I just walked in and knocked on her door when I came to visit her. That was just in 2004. Have things become that crazy?


A little of both.  Mostly it's just a card scanner that anyone with a school ID can get past.  Or faculty and students who live there.

But now that I think of it, I've seen some in the States with nothing before the room door.

Pretty sure all open areas in State and Federal colleges/unis are open to the public, something to do with the public paying for them.  I suspect any 'private' education facility that accepts public money also has to be open.

That would clearly never happen to a white guy. I mean, that absolutely, totally, completely and utte

...rly never happened to me in 1993 when I tried doing the same thing at a San Diego State event that required ID to enter which I refused to show.

11:30 pm on a Thursday evening. It was no big deal.

WTF is going on?

Yup.

~20 years ago when I first went to college, my mother was absolutely, positively paranoid about crime on campus.  She told me all kinds of horror stories, and was completely certain that if I was ever out walking around campus after dark I'd be robbed or killed, and that if I set one foot off campus at any time, even in broad daylight, I'd be mugged, stabbed, shot, and/or kidnapped.  She wanted me to only go to and from class, my dorms, the computer labs and libraries, during daylight hours only, and to be sure to check in constantly (this was the late '90's, so no cell phones, thankfully).

At the local private religious/liberal arts college near where I live, they are INSANE about security.  I play Pokemon Go, so does Mrs. Silverstaff and our kid.  We were out and about a couple of weeks ago one evening and pulled into a parking spot on campus, it wasn't in any kind of restricted lot, we were in a parking spot on a big road that runs through the heart of campus, with the car running and us just sitting there about to battle a gym we were within range of.

We were there maybe a minute before an SUV from Campus Security pulls up, looks down on our car, sees Pokemon Go on our phones through the window and asks if any of us are students, faculty or staff of the college.  When we say no, we're sternly told that campus is private property, that there is no parking on campus for anyone who doesn't have business with the college, that people playing phone games are NOT allowed to be on campus or walking around on campus if they aren't faculty, staff or students, and we must leave the premises immediately or they'll call the police for trespassing.

They were seriously reading us the riot act just sitting in a car in a parking spot along the side of a street on campus.  As we were pulling out we made sure there weren't any "no parking" signs we'd missed or any signs restricting anything to needing a parking permit, or any signs saying the public wasn't welcome, like a sign saying the road we were on was a public road.  There wasn't, they just literally seem to be on the prowl for anyone who doesn't look like they are students or faculty hanging around and jump on them.

It was frustrating and infuriating.  What "Christian" hospitality from that small Christian college to its neighbors in the local community they showed.

Go to Ramapo College and try and walk past the guard shack.......see if I'm kidding, It's not the only place either.

cirby: Whenever I see an "outrage clip" like this, just a few seconds long, I wonder about the context.

Did they just walk up to him, ask for his ID, and then pin him, or was it several minutes of "may we please see your ID, because someone told us you weren't a student here?" - followed by him giving a long and crazy rant about not having to show his ID?


Considering that most people won't be just randomly recording video unless shiat is about to get serious, I automatically assume there's at least 1 minute of context I'm missing before the video starts...
