You may have heard the name Michael Isaacson over the course of the last few days; if you haven't, here's what the John Jay College of Criminal Justice adjunct professor tweeted on August 29th: 'Some of ya’ll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.'
Let that sink in for a second.
'...teach future dead cops.' Here is a boy (I refuse to bestow the title 'man' to this individual) who earns his living instructing students at a criminal justice-based college who marginalizes the lives of law enforcement officers; it should come as no surprise that he also considers himself a leader in ANTIFA, the alleged anti-fascist rabble whose actions at any function or gathering even remotely associated with conservative values more resembles Adolph Hitler's pre-WWII brown shirts than that of a group opposed to fascism. Since his view on law enforcement officers came to light, Isaacson has been suspended by the college due to massive backlash from the public and police unions. Why he wasn't terminated immediately, as he should have been, I don't know, but Isaacson then took a bizarre turn and issued a statement calling ultra-lib New York City mayor Bill DeBlazio 'anti-police'.
Isaacson, as expected, is shielding his 'dead cops' tweet using the first amendment right of free speech. He does have a right to express his views, but here's the rub: there are consequences to that right, especially in light of where he is employed. Karol Mason, college president, placed Isaacson on administrative leave...only it was out of security and safety concerns for students over what the boy said, not the substance of his message.
And that, my friends, is deplorable.
