Student Claims School Covering Up Prof Who Shot Himself to Protest Trump

Student Claims School Covering Up Prof Who Shot Himself to Protest Trump

“It was completely swept under the rug as far as I’m concerned.”

Last week, a professor at the College of Southern Nevada shot himself in the arm to protest Trump. One student says the school has swept the entire incident under the rug because the prof is a leftist.

Campus Reform reports:

Student: School ‘covered up’ prof who shot himself to ‘protest’ Trump

A sociology professor who shot himself in the arm with a .22 pistol in a campus restroom to “protest” Trump remains employed, but students say the school has yet to address the incident with the student body.

Authorities were called to the College of Southern Nevada on August 28, after several students and faculty saw Professor Emeritus Mark Bird stumbling out of the bathroom, bleeding. According to the police report, Bird said he shot himself in the arm in “protest of President Trump.”

Bird, who has been working for the school since 1993, taped a $100 bill to the mirror before carrying out his protest. The bill was left as a tip “for the janitors” who were left to clean up the bloody mess.

Remington Longley, a political science student, told Campus Reform that he was in the next building over from the shooting when the incident occurred.

“The school completely covered it up,” Longley said, adding that the school “never released a statement.”

“It was never addressed by any of my professors. It was completely swept under the rug as far as I’m concerned.”

According to Longley, most students were under the impression that the professor had killed himself, only to find out 14 days later via a report by The Las Vegas Review-Journal, what had actually taken place. Without news coverage, he says, students would still be in the dark about the gunshot, crime scene, or police presence they witnessed.

The school has made no public offer of counseling or support to students who witnessed their bloody professor stumbling out of a public restroom.

Prof. Bird is clearly insane. Why is he not institutionalized? Why is he still employed?

So what was he aiming at?

It wasn’t his arm. A .22 shot in the arm doesn’t make $100 worth of mess.

    You know, he was a Leftist. He wore his heart on his sleeve and missed. The ‘poor liddle snowflake.’ (At least the flake part is accurate.) Fire the Professor Embarrassment!

What obligation does the College owe to the students, such that this one student is bitching that the College has not done whatever it is supposed to do? The Las Vegas Review Journal published a story. Nothing more is needed.

If the student is upset that the school did nothing more, he should try to find an attorney to file a lawsuit against the professor for the intentional infliction of emotional distress that his self-infliction of a gunshot wound constituted. The College has no obligation to provide “counseling” or “support” for the snowflakes who are so distressed by the Professor’s actions!

And the College has no obligation to report the news to the snowflakes.

The professor was probably illegally in possession of the firearm on a college campus, probably illegally discharged it. And obviously is a lousy shot. It might be appropriate to fire him.

It is stories like this which make me think that “Community” was more a documentary than a comedy TV show.

Shooting oneself in the arm – the arm for God’s sake – to protest a POTUS policy is much like cutting off your testicles because your neighbor has too many children! These leftists need to be locked up where they can’t hurt anyone until a cure is found.

My guess (and that is all it is) is that he accidentally shot himself while playing with his pistol in the can and made the story up as a cover for his stupidity. Being an SJW, shooting yourself would earn him points while even having a gun would otherwise be derided excepting for use in such a demonstration of his moral superiority.

Here is something NO ONE is talking about. Did the professor have a gun permit? If he did, was he legally able to bring it on campus? If I was a student there I would sue the college for safety sake. Who knows if the same professor or another is lurking in bathrooms with guns…..
