Officers clarify Mirecki attack details
The University Daily Kansan ^ | December 7, 2005 | Steve Lynn and Gaby Souza

Posted on 12/07/2005 7:09:48 PM PST by johnnyb_61820

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office initially labeled the attack on Professor Paul Mirecki a hate crime.

But the office removed the title today, calling the labeling a mistake.

Lt. Kari Wempe said that the error occurred Monday morning when the attack was reported.

Officers wrongly transmitted the information over the police radio, she said. It is not classified as an aggravated battery.

Capt. Schuyler Bailey of the KU Public Safety Office said the office met with Mirecki yesterday and told him to give them a call if anything happened on campus.

The safety office is not involved in the investigation because the beating occurred off campus, he said.

Not a hate crime. Not aggravated battery.


What the hell is it? Is there anything left to it? Was he hit at all?

Capt. Schuyler Bailey of the KU Public Safety Office

The big news should be most of the "college cops" or "safety cops" in our colleges and schools today are not even armed.

Talk about a serious safety/security problem. Just like our malls etc. Most of the security there are all but completely unarmed.

There are exceptions to the rule.

Does that mean he faked the attack?

The smart money was betting that way from the beginning.

So....he cancels one of his classes because he's exposed as an anti-christian mouth-foamer, and now he steps [is pushed] down as department chair...sounds like the good prof has plenty of time now to really get to know God instead of studying Him.

I would say it was self inflicted.

He says he was beaten with a metal object.

I'm thinking, tin foil hat . . .

You know, after a couple of days, garbage really takes on an odor that can't be ignored.

You know, we don't have all the details but I remember the Missouri basketball player, Steve Stipanovich, who shot himself in the foot or leg while fooling around with his gun. Then he told the cops it was some guy dressed like a "cowboy" muttering things about "basketball players". It was eventually admitted to be a false statement to cover up the goof.

Still awaiting to find out what happened here. But I immediately thought of that story when I heard this one out on a "country road". Guess I have to wait to see how it turns out. Sounds fishy but I suppose it's possible.

"Key facts about the reported attack remained unclear Tuesday, including exactly where it happened. A report released by the Douglas County Sheriff’s 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 sheriff’s officials said they were dispatched to the hospital.

Mirecki declined to clarify the discrepancy when asked about it Tuesday outside the sheriff’s office.

“I can; I just don’t want to,” he said. "

I think that means it is a plain "battery" or "assault", which I think are misdemeanors.
