ok… All of those things are terrible, but he’s blaming the UofU and Scalley for things that they did not do (speaking of the threats).
I’m also not sure I agree with the idea that he’s being forced to move on from his job because of twitter threats. I get it, threats are scary I guess. I’ve been threatened many many many many times. I’ve had people point guns at me and tell me they were going to kill me, and my family. I’ve had people threaten to blow up my place of work. All of those happened as a result of my job. I still have the same job. Not one person has acted on those threats (probably over 100 threats over the last 5-6 years). Yes, it’s a bit scary. I’m aware that my situation and his are not at all the same, and I have no idea what it’s like to be a person of color in America… I also know that the vast majority of threats, especially of the twitter variety, have very very VERYl little chance of actually coming to fruition. Unless he was fired, he chose to leave his job because of some incredibly nasty things that people said to him. I have ZERO problem with him making that choice, but it is nonetheless a choice that he himself made.
If this is just about wanting to feel safe to the point that he left his job in order to protect himself and his family, why does he keep bringing it up on twitter? If his main reason for being angry/frustrated is because of the threats (as you indicated in your response) why continue to bring it up on twitter? If he wants the threats to go away, there is a pretty simple solution… stay off twitter. Should he have to do that in order to feel safe? NO, but it is certainly a choice that he could make if he is worried about the safety of him and his child.
What was his purpose in bringing up the incident with Scalley? Was it to bring light to a perceived injustice? If so, he accomplished that by doing what he has done. When you bravely come forward with such things, there is going to be backlash. Is that fair? Absolutely not, but it is to be expected by anyone who has spent any time on the internet. If his purpose was to bring a resolution to an incident that he believes happened around a decade earlier, this was the wrong way to go about it, and (in part due to the way he went about it) he has not seen the resolution that he wants to see.
Has Lacy deserved the backlash that he has received for his story? Not in the least, but placing the blame on Morgan and the university of utah is just flat out wrong.
