This fuck needs to die.
BOSTON - Cedric Lodge, the manager of the morgue at Harvard Medical
School, has been accused of selling stolen body parts.

According to a federal indictment out of Pennsylvania, Lodge, 55, stole
dissected portions of human cadavers, took them to his home in Goffstown,
New Hampshire and then sold them online.

The accused
Lodge's 63-year-old wife Denise and two alleged buyers, 44-year-old
Katrina MacLean of Salem and 46-year-old Joshua Taylor of West Lawn,
Pennsylvania were also charged in the indictment released Wednesday. The
Lodges both appeared in federal court in Concord, New Hampshire Wednesday
afternoon. Cedric Lodge said nothing as he left court on Wednesday.

MacLean appeared in federal court in Boston Wednesday afternoon, where she
was charged with transporting stolen goods within and with out of state
lines. The maximum sentence for this is 10 years but she was let go by the
judge since this is a non-violent offense but she'll have to report in
court in Pennsylvania at some point. MacLean wiped away tears when she was
told she could go home. She said nothing as she left court and her lawyer
also refused to comment.

Two other people were also charged in the investigation - 52-year-old
Mathew Lampi of East Bethel, Minnesota and 41-year-old Jeremy Pauley of
Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. A seventh person, Candace Chapman Scott, of
Little Rock, Arkansas, was indicted earlier. She's accused of stealing and
selling body parts from a mortuary and crematorium.

MacLean owns a store in Peabody called "Kat's Creepy Creations." Back in
March, the FBI searched the store and MacLean's home in Salem,
Massachusetts. MacLean had no comment to WBZ TV at the time.

Prosecutors say she, Taylor, and the Lodges took human remains from the
morgue and brought them to New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, where Taylor
lives, from 2018 to March of this year.

Stolen "heads, brains..."
According to the criminal complaint, the object of the conspiracy was "to
profit from the interstate shipment, purchase, and sale of stolen human

Prosecutors say Cedric Lodge stole "heads, brains, skin, bones, and other
human remains, without the knowledge or permission of HMS, and removed
those remains from the morgue in Massachusetts and transported them to his
residence in New Hampshire."

The Harvard Medical School morgue manager is accused of selling stolen
body parts.
Lodge and his wife allegedly sold the stolen body parts to MacLean, Taylor
and others "and sometimes shipped those remains through the United States
Postal Service to Pennsylvania and elsewhere."

Sometimes Lodge let MacLean, Taylor and others into the morgue to choose
what body parts to buy, prosecutors said.

MacLean is also accused of selling the human remains and storing them at
her Peabody shop.

In one instance, prosecutors said MacLean "agreed to purchase two
dissected faces for $600" from Cedric Lodge in October 2020.

In another, investigators claimed MacLean shipped human skin to Pauley in
Pennsylvania in mid-2021 and "engaged his services to tan the skin to
create leather."

Taylor allegedly sent more than $37,000 to Denise Lodge to pay for body
parts stolen from the morgue by her husband, according to the criminal

"On November 20, 2020, Taylor sent Denise Lodge $200 with a memo than
read, "braiiiiiins," the complaint said.

"Some crimes defy understanding," U.S. Attorney for Pennsylvania Gerard
Karam said in a statement. "The theft and trafficking of human remains
strikes at the very essence of what makes us human. It is particularly
egregious that so many of the victims here volunteered to allow their
remains to be used to educate medical professionals and advance the
interests of science and healing. For them and their families to be taken
advantage of in the name of profit is appalling. With these charges, we
are seeking to secure some measure of justice for all these victims."

Harvard response
Harvard Medical School called the accusations "morally reprehensible."

"We are appalled to learn that something so disturbing could happen on our
campus — a community dedicated to healing and serving others," Dean of the
Faculty of Medicine George Daley and Dean for Medical Education Edward
Hundert said in a statement. "The reported incidents are a betrayal of HMS
and, most importantly, each of the individuals who altruistically chose to
will their bodies to HMS through the Anatomical Gift Program to advance
medical education and research."

He needs his skull beat in with hammers.
We previously discussed the case of Fresno State University Public Health
Professor Dr. Gregory Thatcher recruited students to destroy pro-life
messages written on the sidewalks and wrongly told the pro-life students
that they had no free speech rights in the matter. As I stated earlier, I
find it extraordinary that the university did not seriously discipline or
terminate Thatcher, but he still remains on the faculty. A district court
has now ordered Thatcher to pay $17,000 and undergo First Amendment
training. However, Thatcher remains defiant and the university appears
complicit in his actions by the lack of disciplinary action.

The pro-life students had written messages on the sidewalk like “You CAN
be pregnant & successful” and “Unborn lives matter” to “Women need love,
NOT abortion.” The lawsuit alleges that Thatcher got students from his 8
a.m. class to help remove the anti-abortion messages and that their chalk
was taken away to write pro-choice slogans on the sidewalk.

The video below shows two students rubbing out the chalk statements
despite the pro-life students saying that they have permission to write
such messages. The students seem entirely unconcerned that they are
censoring speech and engaging in a grossly intolerant act. Instead, they
refer to their teacher as telling them that they should do so. Thatcher
then walks up. If the encounter with students was chilling, the encounter
with Thatcher is positively glacial. Thatcher invokes the controversial
restriction of free speech to “zones” and says that there is no free
speech rights for this type of writing outside of that zone. When the
students explain that they have permission, he then proceed to rub out
their messages and declared “you have permission to put it down — I have
permission to get rid of it.” It is a shocking and disgraceful
demonstration by Thatcher and should be worthy of serious discipline.
However, we have seen repeatedly that faculty members have remained silent
in the face of anti-free speech conduct directed toward conservatives or
pro-life advocates.

In the video of the incident, Thatcher comes across as an intolerant bully
who who used his position on campus to try to censor opposing views.

The money will largely go to attorneys’ fees for the victims, but Thatcher
will pay $1,000 to Tasy and $1,000 to another student, Jesus Herrera.
Thatcher appeared unrepented in comments after the settlement. He noted
that he would not have to pay a cent from his own pocket and that any
money would be paid by his insurance company. He then added this
disturbing comment:

“I did not, in any way, admit to any wrongdoing. I did agree to sit
through a training seminar because I love to learn others’ thoughts and

Of course, the “others’ thoughts and opinions” happen to be a basic
respect for free speech — an area in which Thatcher appears to be both
ignorant and intolerant. Moreover, Thatcher did not appear to “love . . .
. learn[ing] other’s thoughts and opinions” when he was taunting and
censoring these pro-life activists.

It is equally clear that he remains contemptful of the free speech claims
of the victims and equally undeterred in such matters. His comments
reveal a deeper problem at Fresno State University where faculty can lead
students in seeking to censor opposing views and not face serious

milleryoungincident2The incident raises troubling memories of the
controversy surrounding the confrontation of Feminist Studies Associate
Professor Mireille Miller-Young with pro-life advocates on campus of the
University of California at Santa Barbara. Miller-Young led her students
in attacking the pro-life display, stealing their display, and then
committing battery on one of the young women. She was convicted and
sentenced for the crime. Despite the shocking conduct of Miller-Young and
the clear violation of the most fundamental values for all academics in
guaranteeing free speech and associational rights, the faculty
overwhelmingly supported Miller-Young and the university decided not to
impose any meaningful discipline. To make matter worse, Michael D. Young,
Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, not only issued a statement that
seemed to blame the victims but faculty defended Miller-Young’s conduct.
Faculty and student defenders attacked the pro-life advocates and one even
referred to them as “terrorists” who did not deserve free speech. Miller-
Young should have been fired but was instead lionized by faculty and

Like Miller-Young, Thatcher actively encouraged his students to deny
others free speech rights. In arguing that there could be no such free
speech outside of the free speech zone, Thatcher appears unaware that the
“free speech area” was eliminated two years ago.

Thatcher remains listed as faculty in the Department of Public Health.

He's not a real professor, but he still should get his skull crushed
with a hammer.
Among those arrested this week in Portland is an Oregon professor, OHSU
Assistant Professor Daniel Liefwalker. Liefwalker was arrested around 3
a.m. for trespassing, a class C misdemeanor, according the Multnomah
County Sheriff’s Department’s website. We have discussed how universities
should respond to faculty engaged in criminal conduct. I have advocated,
including in recent Senate testimony, that faculty members who engage in
violence on campus should be fired. I do not believe such a response would
be appropriate based on these facts.We previously discussed the
controversial decision of Oregon to honor a California professor who
assaulted pro-life demonstrators on campus. In contrast, this does not
appear a case of a violent academic.
The police did declare a riot and Liefwalker was apparently present as
violent acts were committed, including projectiles being thrown at police.
However, the charge does not indicate that he was personally involved in a
violent act. It is also not clear that he was a participant in the protest
as opposed to being present at the scene as an observer. This is the type
of charge that comes with the refusal to heed warnings to disperse. As
such, it is technically a criminal act but it is closer to a non-violent
form of civil disobedience.

We have often discussed how free speech is being curtailed by universities
by disciplining students and faculty members for their speech outside of
schools, particularly on social media. I would include demonstrations in
such exercise of free speech.

Some 23 people were arrested, including some for “unlawful assembly.”
Assuming that Liefwalker does not face a charge of violence, I would
strongly encourage the school to treat this as a matter outside of the
scope of university review or action.
