On Thursday, September 14th, we published a story that profiled John Jay College Professor and Antifa leader, Mike Isaacson. In this story we included multiple incendiary tweets in which he advocated for “dead cops” and claimed that political violence was necessary against people who oppose communism. Once this story began receiving significant media coverage we launched a #FireMike Campaign and encouraged concerned citizens to contact the John Jay College administration and make sure their voices were heard.

After receiving pressure from our campaign, the NYC Police Union, and even NYC Mayor, Bill de Blasio, the John Jay College President, Karol Mason, issued a statement regarding the conduct of Professor Mike Isaacson in which she said:
“The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority. Today, members of the John Jay faculty received threats, and our students expressed concerns for their safety in the classroom. 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.”
Throughout this review process we have maintained pressure on the administration and encouraged people to contact President Mason directly.

Now, new tweets from Professor Isaacson have surfaced that demonstrate a disturbing trend towards violence against the law enforcement community.
Assata Shakur was found guilty for the execution-style murder of a New Jersey State Trooper in 1973. Professor Isaacson thinks that was a good thing.
I hope somehow Assata comes up in lecture so a student defends her saying she didn't kill a cop so I can say she probably did and it's good

In response to the actions by Trump’s Department of Justice, Professor Issacson said to “Off the pigs”. Not “screw the pigs” or even “to hell with the pigs”, but “off” or “murder the pigs”.

He has even offered instructions on how to burn down police stations.
I hear their police stations catch on fire with an accelerant https://t.co/64E7pOQJAM

In addition to these tweets there are a few that appear to have been deleted.
So how do we get John Jay College to take appropriate action and terminate Professor Isaacson? This is where you come in.
