A group of professors at CUNY’s Kingsborough Community College (KCC) reportedly schemed to leave out an Orthodox Jewish professor from a meeting by scheduling it late on a Friday, according to a lengthy report obtained by The New York Post.

The March 2018 meeting was reportedly organized by the Progressive Faculty Caucus to address discrimination against LGBT members on campus. Professor Jeffrey Lax, who is dean of KCC’s business department, says his colleagues wanted to keep him out of the discussion by scheduling the meeting during the Sabbath. The meeting reportedly never took place because of such complaints.

According to the Post, Lax has been an ardent supporter of the LGBT community and holds progressive ideals. Moreover, Lax’s complaint was also backed by three witnesses.

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
