The legacy of Bridgewater State University President Dana Mohler-Faria - WickedLocal.com | Apollyon | Scoop.it

He will be remembered as the president who chose secrecy over transparency when it came to informing students and staff of two reported rapes on his college campus in September. He will long be remembered for protecting and defending Sean M. Janson, a Level 2 sex offender hired in 2006 as an English instructor one year after he pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography and indecent assault and battery on a child 14 or older. And most recently, Mohler-Faria will be remembered for failing to disclose to the public and the media, two reports of assaults on students in November.

The Swarm's insight:

"Mr Mohler-Faria, It is time that your values as a leader were called into question.  You cannot continue to protect staff members who victimize law-abiding students.  You cannot continue to ignore instances when bureaucrats don't do the jobs they're supposed to do for matriculated students.  Finally, you can't keep looking the other way when a student has a clear and valid grievance.  Law-abiding, matriculated students comprise the majority of the campus community, we are valued members of the campus community and we deserve better from you, Mr. Mohler-Faria." - From Final Response to BSC President [Emeritus] Dana Mohler-Faria via Alfred Wiggins Jr. v. Bridgewater State College.

On April 13, 2007, the plaintiff Alfred Wiggins, Jr., filed suit against the defendants, Bridgewater State College (BSC) and Dr. Grace Seibert-Larke, following an incident on April 15, 2004 in which BSC police officers transported Wiggins to Brockton Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. The complaint consists of ten counts, which include claims alleging negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, and a violation of the Massachusetts Civil Rights Act.

The Swarm's insight:

"In the Nirvana Sutra, Shakyamuni states,


"If even a good priest sees someone slandering the Law and disregards him, failing to reproach him, to oust him or to punish him for his offense, then that priest is betraying Buddhism.


But if he takes the slanderer severely to task, drives him off or punishes him, then he is my disciple and one who truly understands my teachings." - Nichiren Daishonin: The Embankments of Faith
