Outrageous Story From Kansas City: Vatterott College President Brian Carroll is Fired For Allowing Homeless Student To Sleep in the Library

There are many outrageous stories out there concerning unfairness, workplace bullying and violations of due process as well as simply irrational and inhumane decisions made by administrators.

The story below is one of the most outrageous decisions I have heard. The solution is to fire the people who made the decision to remove Brian Carroll, and re-instate him with all benefits. Pronto.

College president says he was fired for offering homeless student shelter inside library in sub-zero temps

He was only trying to be kind to a homeless man.
That, according to the former campus president of a Kansas City trade school, is what led to him being fired, while offering a homeless man shelter from coldweather.
Brian Carroll, campus president at Vatterott College in Kansas City for five years, says one of his students had no place to go. On Friday, January 6th, he allowed a student, who is homeless and schizophrenic, to sleep overnight in the school's library. The school fired him on Monday, January 9th, the next business day.
"Education is a beautiful thing to me," Carroll told FOX 4 News. "But sometimes, it gets destroyed in the process."
The recorded overnight temperatures outside Vatterott College on January 6th hit four degrees below zero. Carroll says that student had been sleeping in a wooded area near the school, but temperatures were too harsh that night, and the student had nowhere to seek warmth.
"I just didn't want to take the chance," Carroll said. "We had ice and snow."
"I had a tough choice to make. He can't stay on campus. I can't put him in my car. I can't take him to my house."
Carroll says the student had run out of his medication. He allowed the student to bed down in the school's library, and even though the student didn't steal or damage anything, Carroll was fired once the school's corporate leaders found out. The building has a series of surveillance cameras that can be viewed via remote, which is how Vatterott's Saint Louis-based management team found out.
"I made a choice. I was choosing between life -- I'm not from here. I'm from Southern California. I'm not sure if I could live in the woods at minus two degrees," Carroll said.

Find out the names of the people who made the decision to fire him. Then Name and Shame them . Then take a civil case against them for crimes against humanity.
