The Abyss of Behemoth

Warrior Priest

In November of 2004, I had a meeting with the Head of Affirmative Action, Alan Comedy. When I met with Mr. Comedy, he told me that, "The school was not liable for the actions fof Dr. Siebert-Larke because she was no longer a campus employee. I knew he was lying to me. He then offered to investigate the Head of the Counseling Center, Wayne Assing, but there was no point. Assing wasn't the individual who filed the paperwork for the Section 12. And so I refused Mr. Comedy's offer.

On September 27 2005, I sent an eight page letter of complaint to the President of Bridgewater State College, Dana Mohler-Faria. Strangely enough, in November of that year, Head of Affirmative Action, Alan Comedy finally responded to my letter and told me that he would be the one to carry out the investigation. Not once was there any mention about our meeting the year before, or the fact that he was in my official complaint to Mr. Mohler-Faria.

During the time I was still a student at Bridgewater State College, the Dean of Student Affairs said campus policy, "guides the reinstatement process". The first paragraph stated: A student may be required to seek professional help if physical and psychological health problems place that student's life in potential danger; impair that his/her ability to maintain an academic program; or when his/her behavior is a serious disruption to others. That kind of thing works when the doctors actually do their jobs and examine their patients.

However, on April 15, 2004, no doctor examined me, I was never brought before a judge--both of which are required by Massachusetts state law--and I was still removed from campus in handcuffs. Furthermore, at every opportunity Dr. Grace Siebert-Larke avoided contact with me, and during the entire sordid episode, the doctor continually made assertions about my character and my life that were not true. Worse yet, as a hospitalized student I got no advocacy from the Counseling Center staff, who let me languish in the psych ward at Brockton Hospital past the time allowed by the state of Massachusetts (I got six days, but the state limit at the time was four days).
