A longtime College of Southern Nevada sociology professor is facing felony gun charges in connection with an on-campus shooting on the second day of classes.
Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.edit on 11 9 18 by projectvxn because: (no reason given)
Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.
One college employee told police that he held Bird’s hand to calm him down as others tried to stop the bleeding. While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report. The report did not elaborate.
Bird was employed with the college as of Tuesday, although Lake said it was not clear what disciplinary actions, if any, would be taken against him.

Meh. I could do without. When does the humour become bloodsport?
Trying for some form of martyrdom, especially in a fashion that could have lead to someone else getting hurt, is not all that funny.
Certainly, some aspects are such that it's better to laugh, otherwise you'd cry. I'm left shaking my head--a lot. So wound up in his hate that this is something that he deems necessary? Sick. Sad. Pitiful. All in equal measure.
