|Arrest this woman and let the court decide her competence|
The discussion of peacock mating preferences in an evolution class got her thinking about committing murder. Yes, peacocks (yes, their species is relevant here). Carr was eventually arrested and charged with battery (details below) by university police. She was hit with a Taser three times as they were taking her to the South County Mental Health Center, "where she was involuntarily admitted for a mental health evaluation," says HuffPo. However, FAU Police say that the school will not press charges against her.
Why is FAU not pressing charges? Well, she's bi-polar, says her family. But imagine a white guy threatening to kill "10,000 Black people" and then striking a Black woman in a classroom -- and not facing charges just because his family says he's bi-polar. Chicago News Bench wonders why Jonatha Carr is not behind bars and why she should not be charged for the offenses that she committed in that classroom. (More on that below.)
The incident happened at Florida Atlantic University's Boca Raton campus during mid-term exams. Somehow, in her feeble, Al Sharpton-enriched Liberal brain, the lesson about bird sexuality was racist. That prompted Carr to ask the instructor, Associate Professor Stephen M. Kajiura, why and had something to do with evolution “How does evolution kill black people?” Makes your head sping, right? Here's the video, with an excerpt of the YouTube poster's description (video contains strong language):
Dr. Kajiura tried to answer her question even though he had no idea what she was talking about. She repeated her question 4-5 more times and it turned into this craziness you see here... Clearly, this person has some SERIOUS emotional issues within herself and the discussion of PEACOCKS was the catalyst to the unleashing of this insanity.
Some of the students in the classroom called police, realizing the potential for violence and being concerned about Carr's spoken threat to commit mass murder. At one point after that, she walked throught the classroom and struck a male student in his head, then left the classroom briefly.
During all of this, Professor Kajiura stayed in the room, according to University Press, and tried to keep the students calm. “She became increasingly belligerent,” Upress quotes Kajiura as saying. “It was at this point, a highly emotionally charged individual who was no longer capable of responding rationally. She was threatening to kill both me and the students in the class.”
Carr returned to the classroom, says the Upress report. “Some [FAU technician] came in and ordered her to get out,” Kajiura said. “He ordered her to leave the room, and they got into a physical altercation. Several other individuals jumped in and tried to help him.”
JONATHA CARR MUST BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH HATE CRIMES, ASSAULT, BATTERY AND THREATENING TO COMMIT MASS MURDER
As noted above, Carr became violent with police and had to be tasered into submission. She threatened to kill her professor and others in the classroom, she threatened race-based mass murder, and struck a fellow student. None of the media reports I've seen tell us that the student she hit was a White male, but you can see that clearly at 2:46 in this video. Her words clearly constituted what liberals would call "hate speech."
Her family says she is bi-polar. But so what? An overly sympathetic article in Huffington Post notes that Jonatha Carr's family "will meet with university officials to discuss Carr's future at FAU, where she maintains a 3.8 grade point average." Oh, but she's bi-polar, remember?
Carr and her family are using the bi-polar thing as a lame excuse for her very dangerous behavior, and they should not be allowed to get away with this. They can't have it both ways: On the one hand, they seem to be saying, their precious daughter is so brilliant that she's got a high GPA. Yet, on the other hand, they're also saying that by virtue of being bi-polar she is not really responsible for her actions. To which I say, unapologetically, that's bullshit.
Carr should be charged. Let the book be thrown at her, and let the court decide whether or not this student with a 3.8 grade point average is so mentally challenged that she had no idea what she was saying when she threatened to kill people. Let the court decide whether or not she is responsible for striking another person.
We read everyday about people who are charged with crimes, who then go to court and claim some kind of mental defense. Insanity, emotional duress, whatever. As I pointed out at the beginning of this post, race is relevant here. I contend that if a male White student had done exactly what Jonatha Carr did, but of course threatened to kill "10,000 Black people" and striking a Black female student instead, he would be either sitting in a jail cell today or out on bond. He would be charged exactly as he should be. But in the case of Jonatha Carr, no charges will be brought by the school.
Somebody in that classroom needs to have the guts to bring charges against Jonatha Carr. Obviously, Professor Kajiura is too much of a wimp to do so. But what about the White student that Carr stuck in the head? What about all of the students - Black and others - who Carr threatened to kill? Where are all the liberals, who would pounce on a White guy for such behavior, and why aren't they charging her with the crime of hate speech? And by the way,
The liberal media is bending over backwards to excuse Carr's murderous threats, assault and disruptive behavior. This report from WPEC-TV is an example:
"We now know that 24-year-old Jonatha Carr was fired up about the case of Trayvon Martin when she had her violent outburst during an evolution class at Florida Atlantic University. Martin is the young central Florida teen who was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer. That volunteer has not been charged in the teen's death and Carr calls that an extreme injustice."
Pause: Carr was worked up about Trayvon Martin's death. Okay, but so are a millions of other people.
"While we can't say that's what caused her outburst at FAU Tuesday," says the WPEC report, "we do know she was interviewed about the case the night before. Carr was completely out of control in her evolution class Tuesday morning, cursing at her professor, hitting fellow students, and being hauled out of the class against her will. But the night before she seemed totally in control. She was interviewed by a Miami TV station about the bus trip she was organizing to the rally for Trayvon Martin.
"He was killed in a such a way that struck a nerve with my family and I," Carr said during the interview.
Again, so what? We're all aware of some story daily that upsets us. Often enough, we get angry about something in the news, and sometimes it "strikes a nerve." But not many of us are driven to screaming murderous threats in crowded classrooms or offices or anywhere else.
Perhaps Carr's biggest problem is not her bi-polarity. She's majoring in education, she's a liberal, and she's obviously been overcharged by race-based rhetoric from the Al Sharpton School of Race Hate. "One of the many problems with race-obsessed liberal ideology," says Moonbattery, "is that there are people out there whacky enough to take it seriously — which gives their craziness a springboard to launch itself into full-blown psychosis."
Few of us - very few of us - hit coworkers or fellow students because we're upset about a news item. Jonatha Carr is one of those exceptions, however. She is dangerous, as proven on video for the whole world to see. There is no guarantee that she will not explode like this again. The bi-polar excuse, as I said, is no excuse and should be decided by the court. Arrest her. Charge her. Treat Jonatha Carr as the menace that she is.
