Sigma Nu Fraternity Suspends ODU Chapter after Display of Offensive “Freshman daughter drop off” & “Go ahead and drop off mom too” Banners
AND YOU WONDER WHY FRATS HAVE OUTLIVED THEIR ORIGINAL PURPOSE, NO LONGER SERVE ANY PURPOSE AND SHOULD ALL BE PROBABLY ENDED …
The Sigma Nu Fraternity has suspended the Eta Chi Chapter at ODU after a complete lack of judgement and respect for women. It was just what every parent wanted to see as they drop their daughter off at college for the first time on moving day. The Banners at the Sigma Nu fraternity at Old Dominion University stated the following: “Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time,” “Freshman daughter drop off” and “Go ahead and drop off mom too.” WOW, really? Had I been dropping my daughter off at college I might just have torn these reprehensible signs down myself and faced the consequences., and confronted these pigs. It would not be the first time that I kicked at frat brothers *ss for inappropriate behavior toward a coed.
What may be more sad than this boorish behavior that has no place in civilized society and especially on a college campus where one is spending too much money for a child’s education, was the reaction and comments of the two female coeds in the video below where they took this as a joke and took no offense. Girls, you are exactly what they prey on. What have we become?
“At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity and these messages sickened us,” said ODU spokeswoman Giovanna Genard in a statement provided to NewsChannel 3.
The signs displayed at a home on 43rd street had messages like:
“Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.”
“Freshman daughter drop off.”
“Go ahead and drop off mom too.”
Now the Sigma Nu Fraternity has suspended the Eta Chi Chapter at ODU pending an investigation into the banners.
Sigma Nu released a message stating their displeasure with the banners saying they condemn the “derogatory and demeaning language used on the banners.”
“Messages like the ones displayed yesterday by a few students on the balcony of their private residence are not and will not [be] tolerated. The moment University staff became aware of these banners, they worked to have them removed. At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity, and these messages sickened us. They are not representative of our 3,000 faculty and staff, 25,000 students, and 130,000 alumni.
Ours is a community that works actively to promote bystander intervention and takes a stand denouncing violence against women. The ‘It’s on Us’ video is just one example of ODU students’ leadership on this topic.
In addition, the University ensures all students receive education on the prevention of sexual harassment and relationship violence.”
Police Dash-Cam Video in Connecticut Debunks College Professor Minati Roychoudhuri’s Claims of Racial Profiling
OH THOSE PESKY DASH CAMS … LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE.
32 year old Minati Roychoudhuri, a college professor at Capital Community College, in Hartford, CT, accused the Connecticut state police of racial profiling after she was pulled over on May 9, 2015 in Weathersfield. However, her ticket she was given stated her vehicular citation was for failure to drive in the established lane. Of course in the attack police at all chances and call them racist environment, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her. As it turns out, the incident was caught on the police dash-cam that proved the 32 year old community college professor was lying through her teeth. Roychoudhuri was subsequently arrested for giving a false statement in the second degree.
Not too smart for a college professor … hopefully the kids she teaches are more honest
A college professor who accused a Connecticut state trooper of racial profiling saw her claims fail when audiotape of the stop proved she was lying, police said.
According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited for failure to drive in the established lane. A month later, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her.
“The policeman asked me if I could speak English and if I knew why he had stopped me. I said, “yes” to speaking English and “no” to why he had stopped me,” she wrote in the letter. “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me.”
When Roychoudhuri, who teaches at Capital Community College, in Hartford, gave an in-person interview in regards to her letter a week later, she repeated her claims of racial profiling and that the officer did not explain why she was stopped. She also signed a statement that it is a crime for her to make any claims that she does not believe to be true in an effort to mislead a public servant.
Read the transcript of the dash cam video HERE.
Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today?
Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration.
FSU’s Dalvin Cook Charged with Battery After Punching a Woman Several Times Outside a Tallahassee Bar Clyde’s & Costello’s (Update: Suspended from Team)
SEMINOLES CRIMINALS BACK IN THE NEWS … HEY FSU, SAY GOODBYE TO DALVIN COOK.
Thus life continues at FSU … Florida State running back Dalvin Cook has been charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly punching a woman several times outside of a downtown Tallahassee bar June 23. The 19 year old sophomore Cook has been suspended indefinitely from the FSU football team. Cook, was FSU’s starting running back who rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a freshman last season. According to accounts, the incident occurred outside of Clyde’s & Costello’s after it closed at 2 AM, when a 21 year old female refused to give her phone number to an FSU football player. The individual was not Dalvin Cook. However, Cook was identified out of a lineup as the person who repeatedly punched the woman and gave her a bloody lip.
Read the Court Documents HERE.
What the hell is going on at FSU and better yet, more to the point, the FSU football team. Coach Jimbo Fisher should be ashamed of himself and probably fired. What are you running, a football program or a gang? The obvious thing that should be pointed out that jumps off the table is Cook is 19. Last time I checked the drinking age was still 21 in Florida. But in Tallahassee, the drinking age for FSU football players is whatever. Second, this incident and the one with QB De’Andre Johnson, who has now been dismissed from the team, happened one day apart. ONE DAY!!!
There is no way in hell that Dalvin Cook can remain on this team and Jimbo claim he gives a damn about woman and domestic violence. What does anyone expect the culture to be at FSU when Fisher, the University president and the Alumni all looked the other way with Jameis Winston?
Florida State running back Dalvin Cook turned himself into Leon County Jail Friday night hours after the State Attorney’s Office charged him with misdemeanor battery for allegedly punching a woman several times outside of a downtown Tallahassee bar June 23.
Cook, 19, was suspended indefinitely from the football team Friday afternoon.
“It is important to me that our fans and the public be aware that I do not tolerate the type of behavior that was captured on video and that was most recently alleged,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement released early Friday evening.
“We will do better. I will not tolerate anything less.”
The 21-year-old woman, who is not an FSU student, and a friend were speaking with a group of five to seven football players outside of Clyde’s & Costello’s after it closed at 2 a.m. when she refused to give her phone number to an FSU football player not named in court records.
Cook, a sophomore, came over originally trying to calm the situation down, court records say. At another point FSU sophomore wide receiver Travis Rudolph also joined the argument.
The woman pushed Rudolph and he did not react other than to continue arguing. Cook asked if she’d pushed Rudolph and punched the woman after she replied, knocking her into a parked car.
Cook continued to swing at her, hitting her at least one other time as he was being restrained. The blow knocked her to the ground. The group of football players then walked away, court records say.
The woman had a bloody lip and dirt on her knee and was intoxicated, police noted in court records.
Check this out, Fisher says this type of behavior wont be tolerated, yet as long as they could win a National Championship, rape meant nothing. He also goes on to say that they spend a great deal of time educating their student athletes about appropriate behavior. HAHAHA. You might want to reevaluate that Jimbo. Seems they are getting as much out of those lessons as they are the classes they don’t attend.
VIDEO of discussion of the incident from ESPN
“Recent events at Florida State University involving members of my football team have brought a lot of attention to the school and program. It is important to me that our fans and the public be aware that I do not tolerate the type of behavior that was captured on video and that was most recently alleged,” Fisher said in a statement Friday. “We spend a good deal of time educating our student-athletes about appropriate behavior and their responsibilities as representatives of Florida State. The majority of our players are exemplary, but clearly we must place an even stronger emphasis on this, and I personally promise we will.
“I remain committed to educating our young men and holding them accountable for their actions.”
In a separate statement, FSU president John Thrasher said he was “extremely disappointed” to hear about the allegations, calling them “especially disheartening” considering they came just days after Johnson’s dismissal.
“I have asked Coach Fisher and Athletics Director Stan Wilcox to develop a plan to help our student-athletes understand the consequences of these kinds of actions,” Thrasher said. “This will include Coach Fisher meeting immediately with his team to reiterate, in no uncertain terms, our expectations of them. I also plan to meet with the team, and we will be asking professionals who deal with these matters, including State Attorney Willie Meggs, to speak with them.”
Banned? What the hell are 19 year old kids allowed to be in them in the first place? Maybe some one needs their liquor license revoked? Talk about putting a band-aid on a broken leg. This is a character flaw coach, not a drinking issue. Your players think they are entitled to treat people like this and obviously have no respect for woman. Maybe you might want to ban them from being around females.
After a week that any football coach would not wish on another, where two players (one now a former player) were arrested for the horrendous action of beating on women, FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher has reportedly laid down the law with his players as to what is expected.
And for the time being, that won’t involve going out to local bars in Tallahassee.
It’s one way to solve the problem, but in the end it’s going to fall right back on the players to be the responsible ones. Fisher and his staff can’t be everywhere to insure that this action occurs, so the players have to decide how they want to represent being a member of the Florida State football program.
UPDATE II: A Culture of Violence against woman … 20 FSU athletes accused of crimes against women since 2009.
According to a report, Cook is the 20th Florida State athlete since 2009 to be accused of a crime against a woman
In June, Outside the Lines ran a report with data from 2009 to 2014 looking into criminal allegations involving football and men’s basketball players at 10 different schools.
Among the schools studied — Florida State, Florida, Auburn, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Texas A&M and Wisconsin — FSU had the most cases of sexual assault, harassment or violence against women at 18 at the time of the report.
Tranquilized Bear Falls 30 Feet After Climbing Tree at the University of Colorodo – Boulder and Bearly Hits Mat Below
REMIND ME TO NEVER HAVE ANY OF THESE GUYS CATCH ME IF I WAS IN A BURNING BUILDING.
A 2 year old bear that found its way on to the University of Colorado at Boulder yesterday is alive, safe and free today in the wild, although asking himself, why do I have such a damn headache. The bear climbed up a tree on campus and then appeared to have stage fright to come down. The bear was tranquilized and eventually fell out of the tree. Maybe the best part and definitely the best line of the video below was when the bear fell out of the try and pretty much hit the ground with a thud. One of the individuals filming the video stated, “That wasn’t very accurate in the catching”. No kidding.
Wildlife officials tranquilized a 60-pound bear that found a resting spot in a tree on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder.
The Daily Camera reports the 2-year-old bear was spotted Friday morning and stayed in the tree for about four hours until wildlife officers used a dart gun to tranquilize it. The bear fell about 30 feet, hitting some mats before rolling onto the ground.
It briefly popped its head up before falling asleep.
Jennifer Churchill with Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the bear will be relocated as far from campus as possible.
Go to the 8:35 minute mark for the money shot
One thing I have to laugh at, was this a union job to rescue the bear? I count 8 men to deal with a 2 year old passed out bear. Make that 9, I man with a hat and his hands on his hips looking productive just entered the video at 9:14. Correction again, make that 10 people. Now a man in a brown shirt with handcuffs is in the video at 9:35. He must be there to arrest the bear for trespassing. I stand corrected again, now they have panned out in the final shots of the video and there are actually 14 individuals present to deal with this including two police officers. It must have been a slow day in Boulder.
FSU Quarterback De’Andre Johnson Dismissed from Football Team after Punk Punches Woman In The Face (VIDEO)
I GUESS NOT EVEN MIGHTY FSU FOOTBALL COULD MAKE THIS QB ASSAULT GO AWAY …
Florida State University has dismissed QB De’Andre Johnson after a video was released showing the FSU football player punching a woman at a bar. Hmm, but not for the video and of course the transfer of former Notre Dame QB to FSU, what would the Seminoles have done? Bleacher Report states that FSU coach Jimbo Fisher had no choice but to give De’Andre Johnson his walking papers. Following the drama and rape charges against former FSU QB Jameis Winston, there is no way FSU could survive another QB scandal. The State Attorney’s Willie Meggs released surveillance video of Florida State University quarterback De’Andre Johnson punching a woman at a bar last month. 19 year old Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery after viewing the footage from the West Tennessee Street bar Yiannis on June 24.
According to court records obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat, the woman suffered bruising near her left eye, swelling of the left cheek and upper lip, and a small cut near the bridge of her nose. The records also state she raised her knee into his midsection before trying to punch him.
De’Andre Johnson FSU Quarterback Punching Woman In The Face
But wait this case just got more interesting, De’Andre Johnson has hired Jose Baez as his lawyer. Yes, the same Jose Baez who represented Casey Anthony in 2011. It turns out Baez is a Florida State graduate. Of course we have the obligatory BS from the defense how this individual who punches women in the face is misunderstood and a nice guy.
“While it is clear from the video that De’Andre Johnson was not the initial aggressor, his family wants to take the lead in helping him learn and grow from this experience,” read a statement from Baez issued earlier Monday.
“He is currently participating in community service, and faith-based focused on battered women, substance abuse, and the empowerment of children. De’Andre is extremely embarrassed by this situation and would like to express his heartfelt apologies to everyone, including those who were directly affected, Coach Fisher and his teammates, the entire Florida State community, as well as his family and friends.”
Last week, Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from the June incident, just days after Florida State suspended him for a violation of athletic department policy. He turned himself in and was released on a $500 bond, according to ESPN.
The decision to charge Johnson came after the state attorney’s office in Tallahassee, Fla., reviewed the security camera footage that captured the incident inside the bar.
NECN is reporting that two people have been stabbed at Tufts University in Medford, Mass at the Delta Tau Delta frat house. Tufts officials had asked students to seek shelter and lock their doors around 5 AM Sunday while police responded to reports of an assault. The conditions of the stabbing victims are unknown. Tufts spokeswoman Kim Thurler says the victims are not affiliated with Tufts and that the incident “appears to be non-random.”. Currently, the police have no suspects in custody.
Police on the Tufts University campus in Medford, Massachusetts, are investigating an apparent stabbing, according to the university.

Tufts University is posting updates on its Twitter feed.
A shelter-in-place order has been lifted at Tufts University in Medford this morning after two people were apparently stabbed “near the campus,” the school reported on Twitter.

University of Virginia Dean Sues Rolling Stone Magazine for ‘False’ Portrayal & Defamation Lawsuit in Retracted Rape Story
YOU KNEW THIS ONE WAS COMING, ALSO THE FRAT WILL MOST LIKELY DO THE SAME …
UVA to sue Rolling Stone magazine for defamation. I am generally not a law-suit happy individual; however, this one was a no-brainer. Following the completely irresponsible reporting by Rolling Stone, A Rape on Campus, and the subsequent retracting of the story and apology after the story fell apart, University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday. GOOD!!! With what Rolling Stone did, might just be the poster-child of cases for defamation.
Rolling Stone reported, A Rape on Ca,pus, What went wrong. Many people have been asking since the magazine retracted their story, Rolling Stone journalism … what went wrong?
A University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday, alleging that it portrayed her as callous and indifferent to allegations of sexual assault on campus and made her the university’s “chief villain” in a now-debunked article about a fraternity gang rape.
Nicole Eramo is seeking more than $7.5 million in damages from Rolling Stone; its parent company, Wenner Media; and Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the investigative journalist who wrote the explosive account of sexual assault on the campus in Charlottesville. The magazine retracted the article after news organizations and the Columbia University journalism school found serious flaws in it.
Eramo, who is the university’s chief administrator dealing with sexual assaults, argues in the lawsuit that the article destroyed her credibility, permanently damaged her reputation and caused her emotional distress. She assailed the account as containing numerous falsehoods that the magazine could have avoided if it had worked to verify the story of its main subject, a student named Jackie who alleged she was gang-raped in 2012 and that the university mishandled her case.

23 Year Old Penn State Student Jon Steindorf Missing Since 5/8/15 in State College, PA (Update: Lied to Parents about Graduation & Attending Classes)(Update: Found Safe)
23 year old Penn State student Jon Steindorf has been missing since Friday, May 8, 2015 in State College, Pennsylvania. According to reports, the PSU student vanished just before his graduation. Stendort was last seen by his roommate at 11:30 a.m. on Friday. Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m. at his Pugh Street apartment. He did not return any of his family’s phone calls or messages.
Missing – Jon Steindorf
Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m.
Police describe Steindorf as a 23-year-old white male, 5’10” tall, 170 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. He may have his black Specialized bicycle with him and a red backpack.
He left his apartment on Pugh Street without any form of identification, credit/debit cards, keys, phone, and potentially money, according to a social media post circulating among Steindorf’s family and friends.
UPDATE I: Police search for missing Penn State student.
“The police have gone through his apartment, talked to his roommate and took his phone for forensic analysis,” the woman said. “We’ve been in contact with all his friends, everybody they know, and really are just at a loss as to his whereabouts.”
A friend told the publication she’s checking his usual haunts. She hasn’t found him.
Joanne Steindorf said her son always let friends and family know his whereabouts.
It would appear that this kid was not being honest about graduating from college or even attending classes. I am not sure how long this missing student thought he could continue this charade; however, it is nothing to do anything extreme over. Is it an embarrassment, yes. But your parents just want you back safe and sound.
The parents of a missing 23-year-old State High graduate thought they’d be attending his graduation from Penn State this weekend.
As it turned out, Jon Steindorf had not enrolled last fall and had mysteriously vanished on Friday.
Steindorf was reported missing by his family Friday evening, a few hours after they went to his Pugh Street apartment at 4 p.m. to pick him up for Penn State commencement exercises.
His father, Paul Steindorf, said Sunday that he learned his son was not set to graduate this weekend, although Jon Steindorf told his parents that he wrapped up studies in the fall semester and delayed graduation until this spring.
“We thought he’d graduate, and that was our understanding that he completed fall classes and he delayed graduation until now, but the most recent information we received was he was not on the list to graduate,” Paul Steindorf said. “Apparently he wasn’t enrolled this fall.”
Jon Steindorf’s parents thought they were coming to State College to pick up their son after this weekend’s graduation from Penn State University. But as graduation approached, they learned that not only wasn’t their son graduating; he hasn’t been enrolled in Penn State since the fall.
And now, Jon Steindorf, 23, is missing.
WTAJ reports that State College Police are now looking for a missing Penn State student. His parents last spoke with Jon Steindorf Thursday.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact State College police at 814-234-7150.
UPDATE IV: Missing Penn State student found Safe.
A Penn State student reported missing by his parents last week has been found, and is safe and unharmed, State College police said Monday afternoon.
State College Police Department Media Release: The missing person has been located, is safe and unharmed.
