College Professor Shoots Himself To Protest Donald Trump

We live in a world where people protest over literally anything and everything.

That being said, there are ways that you can protest that make sense even if the folks on the other side of the barricade don’t necessarily agree with you.

Holding a sign? Yes. Camping out somewhere? Why, of course. Shooting yourself? Why y…..WHAAAAAAAAAT?

A sociology professor at the College of Southern Nevada shot himself in the arm with a .22 pistol in protest of President Donald Trump.

The professor’s wounds are not life-threatening, but he now faces multiple charges for bringing the gun onto campus to carry out the protest.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the professor, Mark J. Bird, shot himself in a bathroom on campus, then stumbled out, “bleeding, before he collapsed.”

Bird taped a $100 bill to the mirror prior to shooting himself as a tip to the janitor for cleaning up the mess.

Bird was hired by the college in 1993 and is currently a professor emeritus.

The police report on the incident notes that “Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump.”

Bird faces charges for firing a gun in a gun-free zone and also for “carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property.”
