As if we were not already battling the negative mainstream media and the violent, domestic terrorist groups who like to bash and attack law enforcement officers, but there are also professors doing the same thing!
That’s right! College professors, people who are supposed to be teaching our young adults to go into the world and be productive members of society, are disgustingly attacking the very people who keep us safe at night.
Michael Issacson, a professor at a well known college of Criminal Justice tweeted out, “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teacher at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”

Wow. So classy. NOT!
The New York police unions are now outraged and demanding that the John Jay College professor (who also claims he is an ANTFA leader) to be fired.
The tweet gained traction after Issacson appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show Thursday night, according to the New York Daily News. The appearance prompted online sleuths to go through Issacson’s past tweets, exposing the offending missive.
“Michael Issacson harbors total disdain for the active and future police officers that he teachers at John Jay College,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association said in a press release on Friday. “Recent media reports have revealed Mr. Issacson’s disgusting anti-police attitudes and his gleeful embrace of political violence, including violence against police officers, as expressed in his own social media postings.”
Detectives’ Endowment Association Michael Palladino said, “I don’t know the professor but based on his tweet he strikes me as a man of ignorance and arrogance with hate in his heart,” the New York Daily News reported.
And Roy Richter, president of the NYPD Captains Endowment Association said, “This message is an abdication of the professor’s responsibility as a civilized human being and disgusting coming from a representative of the teaching profession,” according to reports.
Issacson defended his tweet with a mere, “Oh, that s—? Everybody dies.” Nice try buddy. We know exactly what you meant, and there’s not denying it now.
I am happy to announce that he has been suspended of his position.
The president of John Jay College said she was “shocked” to hear the “abhorrent” anti-cop statement spewed by a professor at her school and immediately suspended him.
“I am appalled that anyone associated with John Jay, with our proud history of supporting law enforcement authorities, would suggest that violence against police is ever acceptable,” John Jay president Karol Mason said about professor Michael Isaacson.
“Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty and staff, we are immediately placing the adjunct on administrative leave as we continue to review this matter.”
