The chief of the Naval Academy police department has been fired following an investigation into sexual harassment allegations even as Navy officials declined to discuss the reason behind his dismissal.
Naval Academy English professor Bruce Fleming said his firing last week was linked to his public criticism of the academy, but documents show some students complained about behavior in his classroom that allegedly included calling students “far-right extremists,” sending a picture of himself in a Speedo and touching students without consent.
As the cool winds of fall grace our doorsteps, the skunky smell of college football wafts throughout the nation. For schools like Army and Navy, the glory of yesteryear will never again be attained, but football remains a welcome distraction for students who looked at colleges and said, “That one. The one that’s like prison.”
