SYRACUSE, NY- For most Americans, the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a terrorist attack that killed nearly 3,000, is a day of remembrance and sorrow.
For others, it is a chance to spew hateful rhetoric in an attempt to score cheap political points.
Syracuse University Professor Jenn M. Jackson, unfortunately, falls into the latter category.
Jenn M. Jackson is an assistant professor of Political Science at Syracuse University in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. According to an article she wrote for The Lily, Jackson is on the tenure-track at SU, a coveted teaching position that makes it almost impossible to be fired.
Jackson has been the subject of scrutiny in the past for her outlandish statements, which includes several attacks on law enforcement. Law Enforcement Today has previously reported on her, now private, Twitter account that contains statements such as:
“Fuck the police today, tomorrow, and forever.”
Jackson also said:
“The “goodness” of cops is unimportant. They are employed in an institution meant to eradicate Blackness. The philosophical principles of being a police officer are racist and anti-Black. They are required to do terrible things.”
Jackson’s aggression towards law enforcement is enough to condemn her, however, there are many other examples of her poor morals.
For example, in another series of tweets Jackson proclaimed that, should she feel disrespected, she will “run you a fade”.
In other, more intelligent, words this academic will proudly physically attack anyone that she deems disrespectful:
“The disrespect of Black women on here is too much *also* please know that this Black woman will run you a fade.”
As if attacking law enforcement officers, or anyone else really, wasn’t enough, Jackson set her sight on a new target this weekend.
On Friday, while the rest of our country prepared for the anniversary of one of the most horrific terrorist attacks on American soil, Jackson took to Twitter to claim that 9/11 was really an attack on “heteropatriarchal capitalistic systems”:

Later in her deranged rant, Jackson attempted to make 9/11 an issue of race in America:
“It’s twenty years since 9/11 and I’m still really disturbed by how many white pundits and correspondents talk about it.”
Jackson then argued that white Americans have not felt fear before 9/11 as they have never been “on the receiving side of military violence”:
“White Americans might not have really felt true fear before 9/11 because they never felt what it meant to be accessible, vulnerable, and on the receiving side of military violence at home. But, white Americans’ experiences are not a stand-in for “America,””
“Plenty of us Americans know what it’s like to experience fear and we knew before 9/11. For a lot of us, we know fear *because* of other Americans.”
Did you know that Law Enforcement Today has a private new home for those who support emergency responders and veterans? It’s called LET Unity, and it’s where we share the untold stories of those patriotic Americans. Every penny gets reinvested into giving these heroes a voice. Check it out today.
Her ramblings are truly those of a lunatic, yet she has not faced consequences from Syracuse University.
In fact, on Monday morning Syracuse University Chancellor, Kent Syverud, made a statement in support of Jackson’s statements.
The Chancellor wrote:
“Speech can be offensive, hurtful or provocative.”
Syverud furthered that, despite Jackson’s tone deaf and disgusting words, the professor will not be reprimanded:
“Some have asked the University to condemn the professor’s comments and others have demanded the professor’s dismissal. Neither of those actions will happen.”
Syracuse University is supporting a hateful and outright despicable professor that has no regard for American values or basic human decency.
Any of these statements alone ought to be enough to dismiss a professor and, when combined, should result in immediate termination. Jackson walked away unscathed and with her she took a piece of the little integrity left in higher education.
In contrast, when a conservative student at Syracuse University spoke in defense of law enforcement, she was demonized and threatened. Where was the university’s support then?
She was fired from her job for writing facts on the myth of institutional racism – so we decided to hire her.
SYRACUSE, NY – We would like to take a minute to both welcome and introduce one of the new writers here at Law Enforcement Today. If you are thinking that it isn’t everyday that we take the time to write an article for that purpose, you would be correct.
You may also be thinking that it would be odd that we make an introduction, considering that we have removed the names of our writers after the death threats we have been receiving. Again, you would be correct.
But, once in a while, something happens that you absolutely have to bring out in the light and discuss. This story is one of those times.
Her name is Adrianna.
This young woman recently finished her freshmen year at Syracuse University. She spent her first year in the political science department and writing for The Daily Orange, the university’s newspaper.
As is the trend on most college campuses, she was one of only a few conservative voices writing for the paper. She was not afraid to share her voice and lend it to the discussions that were prevalent on campus.
She went toe-to-toe with a left-leaning writer over the university’s refusal to allow Ben Shapiro, an outspoken conservative, to speak on campus. While her counterpart wrote that:
“Shapiro does not provide any valuable perspective that aligns with SU’s vision or its mission statement…his rights to free speech has been marred by bigotry, sophistry and demagoguery, which SU should not support with a check.”
As we are not here to highlight the experiences of the writer, we will not share anymore of their stance.
Undeterred by the blatant falsehoods in the piece, Adrianna responded with an article of her own, saying in part:
“Looking toward the future, I cannot see any world in which the SU community will alter its speaker list to exclude those who are biased against conservatives. This fact disappoints me; however, I will not scream prejudice and fight to shut down these speakers.
I will not call for a halt in funding to liberal speakers. The reasoning behind this is quite simple: I believe in free speech. I will defend your right to say hateful things about my peers and me, regardless of my personal feelings.
“With that being said, I support Ben Shapiro coming to campus. In fact, I see a vital need for Shapiro to speak. Our community is starved of viewpoints that diverge from progressively liberal sentiment.
We, as a community, are so scared of dissent that the very planning of a conservative speaker is met with opposition.
“The response elicited by my peers is the proof that shows how much we need Shapiro to speak. If you detest his views, good. If you hate his rhetoric, good.
I implore you to take that as a reason to purchase a ticket. Listen to Shapiro’s views in full. If you still disagree, feel free to question him during the Q&A segment. Don’t, however, uphold a false narrative to protect your political bubble.
“The wild accusations that Shapiro is a ‘racist, homophobic, ableist and xenophobic’ are as laughable as they are terrifying.”
She can more than hold her own.
That article was written in April of this year. Now, fast forward six weeks to the beginning of June.
Writing for LifeZette, she penned an opinion piece called Why Institutional Racism is a Myth.
We need to focus on three paragraphs from this piece, it is the portion that led us to this day, where she is no longer writing for The Daily Orange (more on that shortly), and has decided to bring her talents and her love for the law enforcement community to Law Enforcement Today.
“This trend continues into 2020 where statistics show that police more commonly kill whites during confrontations. The ratio of police violence by race has not changed much over the past five years.
“A common response when presented with actual statistics is to argue that the evidence lacks context. Instead of looking at overall statistics we ought to be taking into account that black Americans represent only 13% of the population. Surely this proves that the police often target young black men, right?
“When taking population differences into account, the argument against systemic racism holds up as well. Despite representing 13% of the population, the FBI reported that in 2017 black Americans committed 53% of homicides and 54% of robberies.
Further, when looking into violence committed against police, black American men represent 33% of cop killers despite being only 6.6% of the population.
“If blacks represent such a small percentage of the population why are they responsible for a large percent of crime? In fact, the Left’s insistence on discussing race proportions is damning to their argument.”
It was that last paragraph that caught the attention of the leadership at the university’s paper.
Casey Darnell, the DO’s Editor-in-chief, sent her an email to discuss it. No phone call. No questions. No clarifications. Just the following email.
And, just like that, she was fired, for quoting facts. How dare she.
But, sticking to their spoon-fed narrative that so many college students have as part of their daily diet, Darnell defended their decision on Facebook.
Darnell obviously doesn’t worry about pesky little things like facts, or, you know, the truth.
“We aren’t afraid of controversial views, but we have a responsibility to avoid promoting harmful ones.”
Who knew that the truth was a harmful point of view.
If only Adrianna had gotten fired. Sadly, it doesn’t end there.
She has been getting threats, some being pretty vile. She has agreed to share them with our readers, not for pity or sympathy, but instead, to highlight just how unhinged progressives can be when engaging with someone from an opposing point of view.
WARNING: Strong language may be offensive to some.
See? We told you.
Adrianna, we wish we could tell you that it will get easier, but it is really just beginning.
But we, your writing brothers and sisters here at LET, will walk beside you as we seek to tell the truth with journalistic integrity. We do not back down when we know that we have spoken honestly and factually.
Clearly, you have no problem doing those things. We have your six!
