College of Southern Nevada Sociology Professor Mark Bird allegedly had a curious way of protesting President Trump: he shot himself in the arm. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Bird was considerate enough to tape a $100 bill inside the bathroom with a note that it was “for the janitor” — presumably for the mess left behind.
After being treated, Bird was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, discharging a gun within a prohibited structure and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property. Police do not say whether Bird explained his curious protest beyond allegedly admitting it was self-inflicted with the President in mind.
It seems rather self-defeating for this political demographic of critics to shoot themselves but there is precedent:
Still this is better than the choice of Farzad Vincent Fazeli who allegedly was protesting Trump when he stabbed a GOP candidate in California.
