The shooting in Virginia last week brought out the crazy in some people. One professor at Trinity College in Connecticut posted comments on social media that may have temporarily closed the school. It’s unclear whether the school was closed because of the posting or because of threats in reaction.

Trinity College In Hartford Closed After Professor’s Online Threats
Trinity College closed for the day early Wednesday afternoon and will remain closed until further notice in response to threatening statements made on social media by a staff professor.
Following the June 14 shooting of a U.S. congressman and several other people at a baseball practice in suburban Washington, D.C., associate professor of sociology Johnny Eric Williams stated on his Facebook page, “It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemF–ingDie.”
Another post read, “The time is now to confront these inhuman a-holes and end this now.”
Around noon Wednesday, the college issued a statement on Twitter reading, “Due to threats received and out of an abundance of caution, all campus buildings are card ID access only. Stay tuned.” Shortly thereafter, a second tweet stated the campus “is closed until further notice.”
