Outraged by Safranek Being Terminated Over Baseless Intimidation Charges?

Commenters are clamoring for a new thread on the new revelation that Dobranski is basing Safranek's termination proceedings in part on baseless "intimidation" charges, so here it is. Comment away.

AveWatch has its take on the issue here. Also, WhoseAMSOL gives some very good analysis here, by taking a close look at the allegations and the relevant provisions of the faculty handbook.

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach thinking about it. It is unbelievable to me that Dobranski could act so outrageously. If you feel the same way, here are two things you can do:
1. Sign the petition requesting the reinstatement of Safranek, Lyons, and Pucillo. More and more people are signing every day.
2. Contact the Board of Governors members expressing your concerns. Safranek's termination proceedings are not over and it is the Board of Governors members who will be making the final determination of his employment status. (I don't have email addresses for everyone. If no email address, I tried to find a phone number.)
