Skip to comments.Mirecki mum on details of beating
Posted on 12/07/2005 6:50:29 AM PST by johnnyb_61820
Key facts about the reported attack remained unclear Tuesday, including exactly where it happened. A report released by the Douglas County Sheriffs Office said the location was unknown and listed it as south of 31st Street on either East 1400 Road or East 1500 Road.
Louisiana Street turns into East 1400 Road outside the city limits. Haskell Avenue becomes East 1500 Road.
Also, there was conflicting information about whether Mirecki reported it at the scene or at the hospital. In an interview Monday with the Journal-World, he said he called police from the side of the road, but sheriffs officials said they were dispatched to the hospital.
Mirecki declined to clarify the discrepancy when asked about it Tuesday outside the sheriffs office.
I can; I just dont want to, he said.
The sheriffs report, which is classified as an aggravated battery, says that Mirecki suffered minor injuries. It says the incident started about 6:20 a.m. and was reported about 6:40 a.m.
KU faculty on Tuesday pondered the effects that recent weeks events would have on the religious studies department.
I dont think we know how its going to shake out yet, professor Tim Miller said. This is a difficult time to get through. I want to get through as well as we can.
Religious studies professor Jonathan Boyarin said, I hope that we will be able to move forward in our scholarship and teaching with mutual respect among the academic community and the people of Kansas and the larger community around us.

And now he won't talk to clarify anything.
I smell fraud.
Gee, ya think?
What a transparent loser.
His story does not pass the sniff test.
Ha hah! LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIArrrrrr!
The filthy pervert leftie, made it up!
He was never attacked by any "fundies".
He probably got beat up by his drug dealer or bookie.
He is a typical liberal liar.
I get the same smell here....he was probably beaten up by his homosexual lover or a druggie peddlar or something.
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
He is no doubt trying to limit the chances of being caught in his lie. The less he says, the better for him.
Hey Proffessor, Filing a false police report is a serious crime.
It looks like South 31st Street is the edge of town and East 1400 and East 1500 Roads extend 5 and 6 miles into the farmland, respectively. So they have the location of the attack narrowed down to some point along 12 miles or so of country road. Which is to say, not at all.
If this attack happened, Prof. Mirecki will lead the police to the exact spot, where they can examine physical evidence that may lead to the solution of the crime.
If this attack never happened, Prof. Mirecki will never lead them to an exact spot, because the police might be able to examine physical evidence and determine that no attack took place.
So, for my purposes, whether or not he leads the police to a specific location will be the best objective indicator of whether or not this attack took place. Until he does, this does not pass the sniff test.
I don't care. Christians are still all a bunch of hate-filled, blood-thirsty, ignorant buffoons who will do anything to turn science classes into astrology classes just to establish a theocracy and force their values down the throats of everyone else.
Also, if I were faking an incident, I'd have decided in advance where it happened. Whereas if I were accosted on a county road and were not paying attention, I might easily not know exactly where I was.
Sure. Are you the Profs gay lover?
A belated /s to you!
You had me going there for a second. Your rant was just over the top enough to be a DUmmy.
You could almost hear the kitty claws extending...
the whole incident sounded fishy from the start - I'm from that part of Kansas and the "assailants" and the "assault" sound exactly like the imagination of a left-wing partisan, and nothing like the jerks I grew up with in that area who might actually assault someone.
I call "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" on the professor!
This from the "Tolerent" left. The left who embraces diversity, the left who uses the courts to advance their homoerotic lifestyle while the general public disagrees with it.
Are you this wonderful embracing of all cultures from the left? Oh, but if your white, Christian, make over 50K per year and are straight you're the DEVIL.
It's been a while since I had the crap beaten out of me, but no, I wouldn't. I'd expect I'd be dazed. He did exactly what I'd do; he called the cops, and drove to the hospital.
There are unlikely things about this story, but that isn't one of them.
Actually it seems to be in accord with a handful of folks here who have used this incident to paint all Christians as complicit in violence against loony professors. The same people who attirubute the universe to mere matter in motion get their panties in a twist when a professor designs a class to ridicule people's beliefs meets with a bloody nose. "Cause and effect" is suddenly an alien notion, and they suddenly have a soapbox for preaching "morality" as if matter in motion demands some kind of accountability. Hey, it's nature's fault.
This is smelling very suspicious now. I'm beginning to wonder if this turkey hasn't gone Tyler Durden on himself.
Time will tell.
Yesterday, I was willing to accept he was beaten. Sometimes it does happen. I wasn't going to join the conspiracy squad and just assume because the guy is liberal he is lying.
But, I am sorry, now the guy doesn't even know where it happened or when?
This smells really, really, fishy. There is nothing believable about his story.
All Christians are like that? Is that what you're saying, without a sarcasm tag?
Professor: "You boys out here for a reason?".
Boys: "Who are you?"
Professor:"I'm the local penis inspector from the college."
Boys: (WHACK! THUMP! BOPP! ZIFF! THUD!)
Professor: "Ouch!...I meant PENCIL inspector....ouch...stop!"
You'll not that he doesn't claim he can't point out the spot, but rather that he won't.
A belated /s to you, too.
The prof didn't think his little false report through and now contradictions will begin to appear as he is questioned. That is always the case with liars who act on emotion.
When is the last time a lefty prof was beaten over evolution? Or any time ever?
The sun was glistening on my claws, then I read his profile. There's nothing sadder than a viking kitty suffering from slashus interruptus.
This smell like week old fish up there also?
Something happened to him. He has bruises; and hospital records will document his injuries. If it was faked, he would have had to have planned the attack with a confederate, which means he should have the details down. What is consistent with the facts is that it was an road rage incident, and that he embroidered it; or that it was a road rage incident, and during the attack one of the yobs recognized him and said something.
That's my theory, and I'm sticking to it :-)
Two men in ancient times were walking along. One of them said, "Look at the beauty of the universe. Look at how everything seems to fit together. Surely God is great to have created all this!"
The other man said, "All this just happens to exist. If things fit together, it's just by happenstance. If there's order and apparent design, it's just coincidence. Can you prove or disprove that this God of yours exists?"
The first man said, "No, but can you prove or disprove that all this just happens to exist and that God had nothing to do with it?"
The second man said, "No, but my views are scientific so they're the only ones fit for public discourse."
And thus secularism masquerading as science was born!
I don't know of any times. But, I just assumed sometimes a conservative will beat up a lefty, not often, but in a country as big as America, I am sure it happens.
Nevertheless, his story isn't believable.
Not to the press. I wouldn't either.
What I find fascinating is that people who are distrustful of the mainstream media feel it's suspicious when someone won't pour out their heart to them. If he isn't cooperating with police, I'd find that suspicious. But staying mum to the press just tells me he's smarter than I first thought when I read his original email.
Very little in science is coincidence.
Agreed. But the police say they don't know either, yet he claims he CAN point it out. I have to assume he hasn't yet done so.
I don't know what happened, and yesterday the idea that he faked it seemed preposterous to me. But the police comment that they don't know, coupled with his "can but won't" language just screams "fishy."
And that, my friends, says it all right there.
It may turn out that he was beaten up. It could even turn out that he was beaten up for reasons having nothing to do with his childish behavior on the ID issue. Or maybe he fell down the stairs at home and decided to create a good Politically Correct story out of his bruises.
I don't have enough facts to make a judgment. If he was beaten for his opinions he didn't deserve it. But he doesn't seem to be a guy who's playing with a full deck, if you ask me.
Far be it from me to suggest that science is a coincidence!
