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.

Those catch words must have gotten their attention. They're like a broken record. Sad thing is there are some folks who really think this incident is an indictment against all Christians.
I didn't make it sufficiently clear, btw, that I don't know or care about the actual age of the earth. My faith doesn't require I prove it's six-thousand years or any other number.
Agreed. it will be interesting to see what the police think.
I have a feeling, though, that this is going to be one of those cases where they can't substantiate the report, but can't prove it's false either, and so one side will believe one thing, and the other side will believe the opposite.
Hehe. Sometimes a scar is just a scar.
If I, or any number of other "Rednecks", had beat his ass, he would be feeling it a lot more than the faking act he's puttin' on.
I'm from up near Tonganoxie, and I agree with you!
That paintbrush is actually firmly in the hands of the Christians themselves.
I think he had a lover's spat with his boyfriend.
Yeah, although it was a foursome with Ward Churchill, English professor John Daly and the hate specialist Kerri Dunn.
Hmm. I'm beginning to see a pattern here with these self-proclaimed icons of tolerance.
