Trump Derangement Syndrome Strikes Again: A College Professor Shot Himself In The Arm In Protest Of The President (https://townhall.com/notebook/bethbaumann/2018/09/12/trump-derangement-syndrome-strikes-again-a-college-professor-shot-himself-in-the-arm-in-protest-of-the-president-n2518266)


A longtime sociology professor at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) is facing felony charges after shooting himself on Aug. 28, the second day of the school year, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The professor, Mark Bird, took his .22 pistol into a restroom on campus. He taped a $100 bill and a note that said ,"For the janitor," onto one of the mirrors.

Bird stumbled out of the bathroom, bleeding, before he collapsed. Multiple faculty and at least one student witnessed the encounter before a 911 call was made.

When police arrived at the scene the .22 and a spent shell casing were found on the bathroom floor.

Witnesses told police they heard a loud noise come from the bathroom but they had no idea Bird was armed or had shot himself, police reports indicate.

"One college employee told police that he held Birdís 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," The Review-Journal reported....

He was probably going for his head and choked at the last second.

Maybe he'll try again.

He's disqualified to teach on any campus now. Our youth are safe from his further brainwashing so I see it as a positive.

A mental disorder is the only explanation for this. TDD or TDS is real.

I don't know about TDS, but I suspect this guy has some significant mental/emotional problems. How would shooting yourself make the least bit of difference to Trump?

Which would seem to run counter to his being a longtime sociology prof.

Sometimes people who are having mental or emotional issues will just focus their angst on a convenient target because they can't actually face what is really bothering them. It's not rational.

He seemed to have planned and carried it out quite rationally.

Do you have any evidence for the things you're guessing about him?

Don't misconstrue rational for deliberate. Rational people don't shoot themselves in protest. Throwing dandelion seeds all over his golf courses would get Trump's attention and thus everyone else's attention far more than shooting oneself.

As much as those attributing it to "TDS". However, as a student of human behavior in general, it has been my observation that people who deliberately self-harm, at the very least, tend have emotional problems. I'm not including people already dying of terminal illnesses. This man is 68-years-old. It could also be a symptom of the onset of some form of dementia.

Obviously someone suffering TDS is not rational in his ultimate goal though he be rational each step of the way.

As much as attributing TDS? Reread the OP, he shot himself in the arm in protest of Trump, something even you admit is irrational. That's what TDS means.

You on the other hand seek to attribute some psychological illness to him for which you expect sympathy. Not the same at all.

I'll bet those mental health problems didn't develop until after the 2016 presidential election.

I couldn't care less whether or not you feel sympathy for him - I am simply challenging the notion that this was an act of TDS. People who are simply offended by political figures general express their objections vocally. People with mental health issues can develop unhealthy obsessions that can manifest in self-harm or harm to others. What you call TDS is not about being irrational, it's just about being offended. What some dismiss as irrelevant behavior is interpreted differently by people who have a different code of ethics and principles. People arguing on forums are not the ones out there committing self-harm or plotting to kill people over controversial politicians.

I understand your challenging it was TDS. And I'm asking what evidence you have otherwise and you have none. Until you do you're just specualting, guessing, making things up for some unknown reason.

And attributing it to TDS is not pure speculation, guessing and making things up? Where is your evidence? I am saying that many mentally unstable people will obsess about singular issues because it's easier than trying to unravel everything that is bothering them. Even people without mental health issues will take out their frustrations opportunistically, not because whomever they are castigating is necessarily the source of their anger. Rational people don't shoot themselves to make a point. Irrational people with something going wrong in their brains do. It's comparable to kids who cut themselves to externalize psychological pain or psychologically damaged people who volunteer to be suicide bombers. Furthermore, people who are the victims of the onset of dementia are also likely to develop weird irrational obsessions and react in irrational ways. Challenging politically self-serving assumptions doesn't require empirical evidence. The revelations of someone who has behaved in a seriously irrational fashion cannot be accepted at face value.

They call it “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/medias-trump-derangement-syndrome-endangering-lives-president-says) and this one particular professor has certainly got it.

Sociology professor Mark J. Bird brought a gun to the College of Southern Nevada, where he is an emeritus professor, and shot himself while in the bathroom. He later said it was to protest Donald Trump's presidency, which was noted in the police report.


The odd event took place on the second day of classes. Police found the professor bleeding outside a campus bathroom due to a self-inflicted shot to his arm. Bird had left a hundred dollar bill taped to the bathroom mirror, supposedly for the janitor, because of the bloody mess he left behind. Police found a .22-caliber handgun and a spent shell casing inside the bathroom as well.



Bird, 69, was not scheduled to teach classes in 2018.

He was charged with “discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. (https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/report-las-vegas-professor-shot-himself-in-arm-to-protest-trump/)

The Las Vegas professor is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing on Sept. 17 for felony gun charges.


The school has stayed relatively quiet about the incident, only sending out an “all safe” alert the day of the event and later vaguely mentioning the incident in a monthly newsletter. (http://blog.csn.edu/?p=2378)


“They never really told the students much about it except that it was resolved on the actual day of the shooting,” Robert Manis, president of the college’s faculty union, the Nevada Faculty Alliance, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/report-las-vegas-professor-shot-himself-in-arm-to-protest-trump/).
“When you don’t give the full details, then rumors go crazy. It’s unfortunate because it made the students and faculty very afraid and allowed rumors to proliferate.”

First, he has a right to a gun without a permit, since there is the second Amen meant. Secondly, he showed some kindness to the janitor with a $100 contribution. That was a good thing to do. It is too bad that people must put themselves through such as this to protest a President that may not make his first term in office because he is not successful with stories. Not that anyone wanted that, except his most devout enemies, who will stop at nothing to make sure he is not a success story because they are already lost.

As for some real severe issues facing the United States of America, Donald Trump needs to grow up and act the 'age' of a President. It is not enough that Hillary Clinton has been at fault for things she was given position(s) for. Hurricane Florence proves the Milky Way says there is a right to life, without outer impediments always trying to stamp it out. Why is that hurricane there? To give President Trump greater points with the press? That's laughable, they usually do let him by with too many of the costs.

:justkidding:

The coasts are dangerous. The people live by them as if sands were rocks that could sustain the oceans madder than hell for what has been done to them, not only in terms of how the latter days are to go, that man would be willing to push everything he ever ventured into, past the extremes of the most dangerous of all times the world has ever experienced in the whole lifetime of man, that a Russian Revolution happening inside of America would be considered a good thing since the President can't be Congress.

The states might feel safer if they were mandated Paris. The President cannot be all places at all times, fixing everything needing to be fixed, he can't be, because he is not God! He is not to be blamed for the dire conditions communities find themselves in because too much central planning has been off base! The people should not be required to pay taxes to schools they never had a choice in the matters, or don't want to, because they have no children to have to pay for, because an education is what happens.

There should be no income tax, since that is where middlemen take off with it. When one earns an income, it is theirs, as perhaps a general sales tax would be welcome for all who purchase pay into the storehouses. Former President George Bush, did he ever say, "no more taxes", but boaters paid? What actually occurred, is that considered at what a jokester would do to prove to everyone he was still a President? No one even actually knows when the shackles actually ever dropped off. That is because they are still on.

While the world is going to hell in a hand basket, because of the alien rule that has been allowed to fester on a planet, large enough to support all of the people presently on it at an all-vegan diet, plenty of crops to spare for, including sheep, goats, and dairy cattle as pet givers of milk, if plant lactose is not enough, and that carrots can be grown, and lettuce, and tomatoes, and all the condiments needed for spices and seasonings, to there is plenty of room for growth of sizeable proportions given everything.

There is no other way out of the mess the world is headed for, when one such as actor-producer Leonardo DiCaprio does more than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of the Interior, as the Bureau of Land Management continues to allow for the killing of foals, with onlookers upset at what is happening to the wild horses of America, being stalked, harassed, terrorized, their young killed, whole herds decimated, where something is very corrupt that needs to be the expunged!

If the great planetary alignments do not prove something, where new planets are discovered, that rubbish isn't going over, neither are stupid statements that global warming is never real, although it has occurred, same with global cooling, while the advancements into real science of how to grow food without murdering animals inside of slaughter houses, who were created to please their Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who were given souls as animals do have souls, as they suffer every single others' seconds!

Blame the internet. Trump is very much in step with it. He does good internet, and good internet is largely junk. Wut ya gonna do, pass laws? LOL.

As shocking as the left's determination to bring down the country in order to get their whiny way is the bizare general concensus that for all Trump has accomplished in such a short time, he just can't measure up to slick Willie, Obama or that den of snakes called congress. A significant part of the American psyche seems to need being pimped, used and lied to. The love of snake oil salesmen is as deeply American as snake oil salesmen themselves.

Trump can't catch a break. Meanwhile, the great snake oil salesman factories, our beloved American academia, demand credit for their training regimens, from which Obama and the Clintons have emerged the stellar results -- to date the ultimate success stories of entrepreneurial welfare sponging.

LOL. What a joke.

How can anyone even stand to look at Obama? He's as phony as they come, every other word out of his highly trained and practiced mouth a lie, and gutless Joe Biden still studies him like a boss. S-s-s-s-s ...
